Hello all, name is Matt. I am getting back into the game after a few years off and it feels like I have never played before. Seems like a lot of good information here, hope you don't mind if I stay a bit.

Welcome. I'm visiting the Grand Rapids area next month and have rounds scheduled at Quail Ridge (Ada) and Eagle Eye (Bath). Looking forward to some nice pre-fall weather up there.

Welcome to the forum Shenanigunz, here you will find a boat load of folks who love the game and and have a range of experience/opinions that cover just about everything to do with golf!

I have friends in the Windsor area and we are looking for some courses to play in Michigan which are approx 30-60 minutes from the boarder.

I would appreciate any recommendations that you may have.

Eagle Eye is a great course. Played an outing there a few years ago and it was one of the best courses I have ever played. I am I. The genesee county area, Flint. My fav local course is the Preserve south of Fenton. Was a member at Davison for a few years, and I believe it is now open to the public on the weekdays. I can't really suggest any course near Detroit as I never travel south to play. Michigan is great, only downside is the winters.

Thanks. Good to hear. I'm playing Eagle Eye on Thursday afternoon. Weather forecast for next weekend looks amazing. Sunny and highs in the mid 70s. Nice change of pace from the hot and humid weather we still have down here.

Right around the corner.   I live down the street from Copper Ridge.    I've played quite a few different courses this year around Genesee County but my local / semi-local favorite is Fore Lakes in Kimball, MI (near Port Huron).

Didn't know that Davison was open to the pubic on the weekend.   I thought you had to be a member or a member of the Athletic Club to play.

Was in Glen Arbor for several days and played Arcadia Bluffs (47 miles away). When you turn in off the highway you feel like you are in Scotland. I was in awe for 18 holes it was spectacular! You reach a green in regulation and expect to two putt for par but no way, their greens are multi-tiered and undulted.

    • For those who don't know, for my actual "job," I am a professional photographer. I recently picked up a few putters from a now out-of-business company called PLOP, and they are just gorgeous putters, so I had to photograph them and I wanted to share. I was looking for a center shafted putter, as it was what I was fit into. Unfortunately I can't stand the look of center shafted putters so every one I've ever tried was just not an option. That is, until I found an old (what would be original version) of a putter my grandfather had in his bag called a PLOP. I looked up this particular brand and found that it was no longer in business, but best of all, the owner/inventor of the putter made what he calls a CSH putter, that is Center shafted hosel, but the hosel is "floated" through the heel end of the putter, still welded and attached to the center. Even better, he was selling the rest of what he had milled on Ebay, including a few special putters. So I get to look down at what is a blade style, while still having my center shafted putter. It was a downright bargain for a milled putter, too.  I have in photography what we call GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), and sadly it translates to golf, too. I ended up buying 3 putters. One is a very wonderful black PVD finish, and the other is a nickel PVD finish that was tour-stamped, both very limited editions. I will do my best to photograph these and upload at some point, too.  In any case, I wanted to share a few of the images here. Unfortunately I can't upload the full size quality files but hopefully everyone enjoys a few of these. On a side note, golf clubs are actually extremely fun photographic subjects.  (Wasn't sure if this would fall under "clubs," but I thought it was more of a golf story/tidbit with the pictures. When I find the time to sit down and create a blog, I can put them there.) Feedback welcome, of course.   -Andrew.
    • I was about to ask what the birdie conversion rate was at the Barclays, to you know, get back on topic !
    • I have also experienced that. For whatever reason I excel at wedges in the sim. Its my full swings that dont register. I hit it hard enough for it to be loud and for the ball to hit middle of the screen but it either doesnt register or it comes back with something like dead straight but 98 yards. I had demoed a 3 hybrid and got that particular distance. I hit my 56 degree wedge that far. I often have near the same experience at the range. Only place I can hit a golf shot is on the golf course. It's ridiculous!! I mean come on, Im there, Im the one its happening to, Im present to witness it. It defies all logic!!!!! Has anyone else ever experienced such lop sided madness?!
    • It's only because, at one time, I worked with a lady from a California winery who kept referring to her Son, Pawul and her husband Gee-aw-gee-ohh! I couldn't place the accent except that I knew it was eastern. I finally asked if she was originally from Cali, and she told me she grew up in Lawn Guylund! The "G" in that accent definitely leads the second word. Maybe I'm weird, but I really like accents. I think they make the world, and it's people, more interesting. Imagine how boring the world would be if everyone sounded like a network news anchor!
    • Ah! Another mystery solved. I've seen these and kind of wondered where they came from.
