Hey Boston Sandtrappers...

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be in Boston for a conference from the 19-26 of July. My days are full but my nights are open. I'm hoping to find an easily accessible course that offers evening golf with rental clubs available. Preferably not too expensive. Any suggestions? Anyone wanna join me?

What? No takers?? Fine, you don't have to play with me, just recommend some courses with lights that are easily accessible from the downtown core.

OMG, you've become *bump my own thread guy* lmaorotf I didnt golf when I lived up there but there is a chance that what you are looking for does not exist. Even in the land of year round golf, I only know of one course with lights around here.

Whoops, must have missed this thread the first time around. I don't know of any course in the area with lights. During late July you'll still have sunlight until 8:30ish, so you should still be able to get in 9 somewhere. Obviously, no courses right downtown. Closest you're going to find would be William J. Devine at Franklin Park in Dorchester, Robert T. Lynch in Brookline, or, my favorite, George Wright in Hyde Park. On the Cambridge side, the closest would be Fresh Pond, a 9 hole course. I've never played there, but from what I've heard they've been pumping money into it lately. Not sure if any of those places rent clubs.

Thanks Jamo. Yeah I'm looking at William J. Devine just because it's a 10 minute can ride from the hotel. They do rent, not sure if I can make the last tee time though. I thinks it's at 5pm. I might just sneak out of the conference though. Maybe I'll be a badass and skip out everyday and get a good solid week of nines in.

Off line for the last two days.  George Wright is a nice course.  I have not played there, but one of my workmates likes it a lot.  Most of the courses I play are north of the city about 25 minutes.  I have my league on Mondays and a grad party on Sat the 20th.  It would be real hard to get there by 5PM on a work night for me with traffic.  Sunday the 21st might be possible though.

It's still a ways away and I don't know my schedule yet but if I can get some free time on sunday I'll PM you, it would be cool to meet up with a fellow trapper. I'm no great shakes on a golf course but I'm a quick and courteous playing partner and I maintain my cool regardless of score.

If you guys want a third, I'll be around those days. And Ermest if you'd rather not rent I've got more than a full set you could borrow.

That would be awesome. I'm going to look into my schedule when I get back from vacation and I'll update through PM.

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
