I saw a few older threads on this, but nothing recent. Anyone have advice for the golf courses there? Heading up this weekend for a buddy trip 6-round jaunt (thursday-sunday). Going to be cold in mornings, so may not get all the rounds in. I'm not a big casino fan, so really just there for the golf.
Recommendations on best courses, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
Solid statement there. I actually like that. For too long I’ve had too many hobbies (mentoring, other sports, video games, …) Although those experiences are valuable, I think that going forward I’d prefer to focus on one hobby and do that well.
Quitting golf!? Surely you jest. I certainly don't see that ever happening to me. I get depressed when I have to take a week off. Perhaps I am a golf fanatic, but I can't imagine my life without golf. Heck I took my clubs and played golf twice on my Honeymoon...without my wife!
Reasons why I play and would never want to quit:
All my friends I met at the golf course
As a lifelong athlete, I like the competition
I am good at it
Exercise- I walk every round
It's a lifetime activity. There are several guys in their 90's that play regularly at my course.
It's my job. I have worked at a golf course for 20 years as a second job. When I retire from my main job here in a few years, the golf course will be my main job.
It's my only hobby. In order to play as often as I do, it's all I do. I don't play fantasy football, I don't go to the pub with the boys, I don't even hunt anymore. I work, play golf, and have family time.
