Good news about my local course!

Recommended Posts

Well, a long time ago, I played every day at our local course that was designed and built by Jack Nicklaus.  It has been my favorite course around every since.  Well, it ultimately ran into financial trouble after the Bear Trace blanket sold it to the local State Park.  It has since been sold a couple times and has now been closed for a while.

The rumor now is that Justin Timberlake and the investors that bought Mirimichi has now bought the course.  The word is that they are even going to drop the playing price.  This has been the problem with low turnout the entire time but no one ever dropped the price.  I am ECSTATIC about this because I absolutely love the course.  I can't wait for this to take place (hopefully it's not just a rumor).   This is what I need to get me back into golfing like I used to!!

You just hope to see Justin Timberlake on the golf course. Stalker.

I'm kidding. Sounds like it could be just what they need there. Hope it all works out for the best!

Aways good to see! :)

My course has had a boast too just recently, there's an Olympic Legacy fund to promote grass root sports in the UK, my course has secured £50000 from them, the only course in County Durham to have been granted cash from the scheme I think!

Absolutely...like a giddy school girl...haha!

Maybe it will, but I'm not getting my hopes too high until I see some progress

Yeah.  It's such a nice place and it's about 15 minutes from my house.  Once they shut it down, all of my friends (me included) slowly fell away from the game.  It wasn't the only local one that closed.  There is just one left that is nearby and it's really short.  I'm pretty much a driver, short iron in on all holes except one or two. So I'm hoping that next year it will open up and I'll get my motivation back.  I'm having some golf withdrawals and getting the golf gear magazines in the mail every month doesn't help...haha!

    • Maybe for some of them. That green complex looked brutal tho. Not really a good bailout for where the pin was. I think men would have struggled with that pin position too. 
    • The very latest.  Still across the line...finding it hard to work on that and get it fixed.  The downswing/hands in and extending part is going well though.  I've been setting up closer to the ball since I didn't like the posture I saw earlier this year.  I really like where that is at right now. Problems?  Still consistency.  When I'm on, I'm on and it feels good.  Miss is just a straight pull...not a hook.  If I keep my right elbow/forearm tucked in I almost never have the over-the-top pull. Oh, and sorry about the red @iacas.  I'm in the blue camp, not @mvmac's red.    
    • Yeah, and a convinient bail out spot for short left shots. 
    • I do a mix of all those things. Except massage..they hurt.. When i was younger i used to be all into super prep and trying to map out the course i was going to be playing to the shot. Then in the tournament i dont hit the shots anywhere near i planned out anyway... I played better once i stopped doing that because i felt i was free to just play the shot in front of me, instead of being frustrated that my round wasn't following some script i made up. I think its important to have good survey of the property where you're playing and have a general plan of attack that fits your game, but dont overdo it.  As far a scoring goes, bogeys don't kill you. Doubles or more do. Bogey should always be your in mindset after a miserable shot, and if you get par or better in the process - bonus!  Trying to play hero recovery shots most often leads to big numbers. Take whats in front of you, even though it may taste like weaksause sometimes.  But I would say overall, focus and self confidence is the biggest weapon you're going to have. Know that you belong and feeling like you're the best player there. If you dont win, its because you let someone else win, not because you're not the best.   Dont worry about what your playing partners are doing. They are not putting the ball in the hole for you. Play your game to the best you got and you'll be fine. Enjoy yourself. Theres no better rush in golf than competition. Its a reward in itself. 
    • Does anyone experience hitting sand shots that hardly get off the sand and hit the inside of the bunker?  I am experiencing this bladed shot and don't know why so I'm open to suggestions.  I worked on it today and I seem to be much better off hitting a normal pitch like shot out of the bunker as opposed to opening the face, exposing the bounce, etc.  Interested in any thoughts.
