If the weather cooperates at all I try to play twice a week.

I used to play almost every single day (whether the weather cooperated or not) and from daylight to dark on any day I didn't work. I had a cover and a heater in my cart and could play in almost any weather except for the occasional snow we get here in Alabama.

I was obsessed with wanting to consistently shoot even par on our par 72, 68 course rated course. Just about the time I got to that level I had to drop my membership for financial reasons and pay to play twice a week at another course where they gave my family a good deal.

I had to lose the obsession and learn to be somewhat satisfied with shooting in the mid-seventies twice a week on a par 70 course that is not course rated but would probably be about a 65 if it was.

Occasionally everything clicks and I can go pretty low now, but not very often.

I try to play 2-3 times a week. I envy people who can play everyday.

Young retiree here - ex-military - in FLA so I can get out 2-3/week......I play an equal amount of tennis so I'm having a hard time balancing the two.

I try to get out on the practice area (short game/putting or range) on days that I don't get out to play.

Since joining my first golf club on the 1st of March Ive played 5 times and over the Easter school holidays Ive got 3 rounds and a lesson in the books for Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Will try and get out 3 more times over the holiday (family permitting) otherwise Im trying to play at least once a week with a couple practice sessions thrown in between.

Once per pay check, so twice a month or so. But if the weather cooperates 4/6 & 4/7 going out to the NAVY Base. 18 in the morning, 18 after lunch each day, both days! Great stuff.

Did I mention another two inches of Snow for tomorrow? RATS!!! Just put the snow blower away last night!

I've seen the Grounds keepers out working at the local courses, doing every thing except placing the flags.

Like NASA says: 10,9,8,7,6, (This is where I am), 5,4,3,2,1, TEE OFF!

I play at least once a week, 52 weeks a year. Half the year I'll play a 2nd round in a week. I'll probably play 80 rounds this year.

Over the course of a year I will play around 110-120 times (18 holes) which works out to around 3 times a week.  When the weather cooperates in SE Michigan it is closer or slightly above 120 and when it does not cooperate (like this year) more like 100-110.

    • I have come to the conclusion that some shots just aren't worth attempting. Sometimes Stroke and Distance is the easier way out.  1) the duffed tee shot that ends up rolling down a steep slope into a lateral water hazard. You're hitting out on a steep slope - lucky if your ball stays on it. Your local knowledge of the course says "f*** it." You re-load +2 strokes and stripe one down the middle of the fairway and get a B or DB. Be thankful. It could have been a snowman. 2) the shot that ends up in the tall fescue... deep in the tall fescue, but you know you can find it because you know the course. Your local knowledge once again tells you to abandon the ball and take a S&D and drop a ball and just hit a shot because hacking your way out of that thick dry grass is a total nightmare. Stop and pick up your first shot on your way... that $4 ball is still usable. Now a pro or low handicapper might actually try these shots, but for us higher handicappers these make blow up holes. Stroke and distance can actually be a lifesaver at times. It is something that can always be used.
    • There is one reason to have the latest greatest equipment.  If you love having no money in your bank account and can't afford to play golf anymore, then the newest clubs are a must have.  Don't get me wrong if I have a club in my bag that is not working I will replace it.  But I will buy last years model from a second hand seller, and still have way better equipment than Sam Snead or Bobby Jones ever played with.
    • You know, sometimes. I have found though that as I have improved, my times have gone way down. An hour and a half to walk nine. It used to take me over two hours. I don't hurry any more than I did, I read the putts the same, I still take a practice swing or two. I actually hurry less, I used to pick up on holes, or not even look for balls and just drop one. It's just that now I progress towards the hole significantly with each swing, balls are easier to find if they are usually in the short grass, This past weekend, I hit a bucket before playing, the range is right next to the first tee, across a little drive. A couple got to the first tee in a cart just as I walked to the range. I hit a whole bucket of balls, crossed the road to the first tee, and they were still playing the first hole about 150 yds out from the tee, looking for balls, I think. Anyway, they waited for me on the second hole and let me play through, so I couldn't be mad. But wow.
    • FWIW, I had a long (forced) layoff from golf a few years ago. I basically had to start over from day one. The reason for my layoff required that I start slow, and easy. I started with my putter, and worked my way from there, back to the tee box. You can "google"  learng the game backwards for more information. I know it works, because I have seen it it work with a few golfers. Obviously getting quality, personal  instruction is probably the better way to go. However, it's pretty difficult to find that quality instruction, unless you do your home work, and can find the right instructor, and more importantly have the time/money to spend with that instructor.
