im 15, been a member for 3 years, i hate my golf club, the staff are rude, the seniors are rude and they dont care about us at all, my restrictions are stupid and i can barely get time to golf. We have a junior opening day, club championship and junior closing day, we also have junior clinics for free but i dont go to those.

You can play in the monthly medals but you need a handicap of 18

You have to be off 15 or less to play at the weekend with members in my club, i need to drop 3.1 shots by august 31st!

I'm 17 and I work at a little par 3 course that's next to a regular sized course with 36 holes (member and non-member side). And I get to play there for free as long as I don't make a tee-time. I have a lot of friends over there so I can play with them... It's awesome.

And I'm in a Junior Tour here in Tennessee. It's very well organized and sponsored by TaylorMade and Adidas.

Just out of said age range, i'm 18, had my birthday in April, but i'm still considered a juinor at my golf club, also we have recently had a large group of young kids join our club, 15 - 20 of them aged 12 - 15, and they are treated as full members, there are no restrictions placed on them and they are allowed to enter all the tournaments, and rightfully so, some of them are very talented(in my opinion) in under a year they are on handicaps of 10 - 15.

I'm 15...I play in my own Junior Golf tournaments outside of my home course. I don't really belong to a "club" I have a membership to a public course, though. I can go out any time I want no restrictions...pretty cool I guess.

mine is very similar, though me and my friends are 15/16 we still get pushed around by the adults who think that were not that good.

It's so-so at my club. No member can tee off before 1 PM on weekends and holidays without paying full price, and juniors can only play on one course (out of three), and can only walk. At least if they're by themselves. If they're with someone else, obviously, they can play any of the three and ride in the cart, etc...

I'm 16 and play at 3 public courses, one in the city, one near my cottage, one near my grandparent's house. I love them all, and even though I'm not very good (yet), no one gives me a hard time.

I'm 14 and my club is actually pretty good. There are 5-6 junior events/competitions a month and there are no special rules, except you're not allowed to play the championship course unless your handicap is under 30.

Im 17 so Im just about a junior at my club. They have tournaments every Sunday, and Wednesday in the summer. I never play in them because I am still not as good as most others and alot of the other people my age there are not really friendly. I just play with 1 or 2 friends that I have known before I got into golf so I don't really participate much in what the club organises. I'd say they are pretty inclusive of the junior members at my club.

    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I pointed this out just to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
    • Depending where folks come from, West Point Golf Course would be a nice location.
    • Day 508: Indoor putting bead drill, and some backswing work outdoors, slow swings hitting foam balls.
