The last time I visited the 19th hole after a round was in the 1990s!!!  I used to play in a regular pot-game back then.  We'd have 20-35 players competing during prime season and we'd all gather in the grill afterwards for payouts.  The wait for all the groups to finish was always painful.  I usually drank water or a Gatorade. Since those days?................NEVER.  LOL

IMO...if I have the time to burn afterwards, it would be better spent playing an extra 9 holes!

No joke......ever since I relocated and changed to a new golf club, all of my regular groups make a beeline to our cars after walking off the 18th and that is the way I like it.  If there is money to be handed over....we do it from our carts after we drive clear of the 18th green. lol

Sounds like a real close-knit FUN group :yucky:

Summertime: gin and tonic. Cooler weather: whisky on the rocks I play a lot of solo golf, so my 19th hole is usually in my yard chipping around. If I'm lucky enough to get out with my buddies we'll stick to beer usually.

Summer: Rock Shandy (good, large dash of Angostura bitters, shot of lime cordial and made up to a pint with half-and-half ginger beer and lemonade. Lots of ice.). Fantastic thirst quencher.

Rest of the year: A good blonde ale.

LOVE ginger beer!! Definitely an acquired taste.

I like a nice cold vinho madeira. But that's once or twice a year. Usually it's a Sam Adams or a Jameson on the rocks.

I've used madeira to cook and I've had some delicious scotch whiskys that have been finished in madeira casks but I've never drank it as a beverage, kind of a drier version of porto?

Four types (essentially) of Madeira from bone-dry to very sweet. Sercial is pretty dry - maybe a substitute for a light sherry? Verdelho is off-dry, pretty nice. Bual is med-sweet and can be fantastic while malvasia is the sweetest, easily as sweet as port - great dessert wine. If you've not tried them before, we were recommended the verdelho and the bual when in Madeira as a starting point. Aged versions can be truly fabulous. Well worth a go - I'd recommend them as something a bit different.

Agreed. I'm a fan of the bual and malvasia, especially if you can get them aged in barrel vs. exported in a bottle. They're both better off sipped almost like a scotch in my opinion - you don't want or need a big glass.

    • Really? When? What was your AFSC/job? Maybe we overlapped somewhere? 
    • Yea, those first three par 3's were all effectively long iron shots. BLAH! Hole 2 and Hole 5 were OK. The rest on the front nine were meh. 
    • I appreciated the idea, but I don't think I will be doing that.  For me, taking the arms out causes my right elbow to stay to close to my body, and the hands start to just go deep.  I agree
    • Ditto.  The course certainly had some faults. It was squeezed onto a parcel of land half of which was barely suitable for golf. So I think the architect did a mostly good job with what was given to him. I was less happy with the course setup and maintenance. Greens were bumpy and speed was very inconsistent from one hole to the next. Too many cups were cut 3 yards from the front, and many others were cut on top of humps or on slopes 2% or more. It is no wonder pace of play was almost 5 hours. My other gripes are that many of the original sand traps have been removed, dummying down the design intent to save money, and cart paths were often too close to the playing areas. I probably would not play there again.
