41 for 9 this morning before work. Struggled off the tee for the first four holes, but scrambled to salvage +3. Then the last five holes, I struck tee shots well and shot +2 for a total of 41.

Overall it seems my scrambling ability has improved tremendously. I think that is because I had a lot of practice (not at the driving range, but while playing )

Played 36 holes today for the first time this summer including the fastest round of my life (2.25 hours). Shot 81 the first round and 86 the second, I had to walk the second round and just kinda got tired and shot 45 on the last 9. Good day of golf though :)

9 holes at Fred Enke Sunday morning, shot 4 over with one double and only 11 putts (so my approach shots sucked). Played 9 holes at Pusch Ridge yesterday morning, tricky little course, shot 4 over again, missed a few legit birdie chances with the flatstick. Played 9 this evening in an executive business league, and was far from sharp. Large sharp draws on nearly every mid to short iron, from right edge of the green into the leftside bunker. 6 over for 9 (2 more than my last 9's there combined). Was still fun to be out on the course. I pulled the 1 iron out on #9 (250 yd par 4) just for fun and hit my best shot of the day, a screaming, rising line drive than ended up 15 yds past the green. Easily the longest, straitest "long iron" i've ever hit.

Following a fire that destroyed our house last fall and the birth of our first child in January, I haven't had much time for golf lately. In fact, I hadn't played since last Father's day. So my brother and I decided to get up early and play a few weeks ago. We booked a tee time at 6:34 at a course we had both played once or twice in high school.

On the first hole, my approach shot was a little short ... probably because the head of my 5-iron flew off and landed about 40 yards down the fairway. My dad cleaned up my clubs following the fire, but apparently the heat weakened the epoxy. I had no problems with the rest of my clubs, but it wasn't a good way to start the day.

I ended up shooting 96 (not far from my average), but even more disappointing was the fact that my brother shot 86. He continues to hold it over my head to this day. Considering I hadn't played in a year, I was pretty happy with my ballstriking. My short game, however, was atrocious. I probably three-putted at least 8 or 9 holes.

We're planning a rematch this weekend, so I'm going to head to the driving range Friday night and spend most of my time at the putting green.

have had to work more than usual this work so ive only played two 9 hole rounds during twilight this week...:(

tuesday shot a 39 (3+) not bad considering I was 4 over after 5 holes

Wednesday shot a 35 (-1) ... played some of my best golf of the season and swing muscles are gaining some sort of memory... im consistently driving the ball to and around 300... I know this because Ive been just short or on greens on a few holes measuring 320-330...Drove a green twice sat and sun at 312. Need to practice getting my approach shots within birdie range instead of 2 putt range

Played a great round today, sticking everything within 10 feet from 100 yards and in, and even a few from 150 and out. Overall, shot 45 on the front and 42 on the back which would give me two qualification rounds for my high school team had it been a match (season doesn't start for 1 1/2 monthhs )
Overall:87

79 (+7). 42/37. 37 (+1) is my best score on 9 ever. I'm pretty excited about that. Back to the round, 7 fairways, 12 GIR (8 on the back), 36 putts, 2 birds, 2 doubles, three 3-putts, and three 1-putts. I left a few shots out there around the greens on some chips, but I'm happy with the way I hit the ball. Handicap's on its way down!

I went out today on the course that whooped me last weekend and shot 50 over 9 holes. Not, perhaps, what I was hoping for (set my sights on breaking 50 today) but I was much happier with my course management and club to distance matching today. I have struggled as I have been taking lessons and have gained serious distance on most of my clubs. Adapting to that has really been a task. It seems to be coming together, though.

With any luck, I will be able to come here later this weekend and post a sub 100 round to add to this close one.

Not a great day, but a beautiful course and wonderous weather conditions....Started out awful, shooting 49 on the Front at Orchard Creek in Altamont, NY. Turned it around making a few pars and a birdie to come back and shoot 44 on the back to shoot 93.....this is a course i should break 90, but just not today!!!!!!!

Not a good day at all, but only 2 off from my first time golfing (again) last month. I'd say I broke 90, but it's just a par 3 course, so... 86, 2 off my best (of 2 rounds) at the course of 84. AND I knocked in two pars.

Greatest weather day since......who knows? 37/45=82.....why? Two hooked tee shots OB and one in a lake, that's why. Front nine was EASY. I make the game so hard

    • Good for you, what course are you qualifying at?  Good luck.
    • Considering how many people he comes into contact with and how often he is flying, it is unfortunate but not a total surprise. You can catch Covid-19 again even with being vaccinated and previously infected. It just means that your infection is mild.
    • Or, he understands how it transfers, and he was only around his wife for two months. He didn't need to get tested… because in getting tested, maybe he would have gone out more than he did in isolating at home, perhaps? You are making a LOT of assumptions, as you often do, @Shorty. Cool it.
    • The Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 I wasn't a big fan of this course. It was beautiful and well-maintained, but I found parts of it to be a little contrived. It's definitely a target golf course and for someone like me who is wild off the tee, it took all the fun of strategizing out of it because the risks were just too high. I did like that there was variety in the course layout with a good mix of short/long, right/left, uphill/downhill holes. I'm not sure I'd make a trip out to this one again if I'm ever back in the area for golf, but it's less than 10 minutes away from a delicious French bakery with the best croissants I have ever had, so that bumps up the score a little  I'd go back just for the croissants. The Sandbox - 7.0 This little 17 hole par 3 course was just fun. It gave you different looks and a variety of options for play. I really liked it and tried a bunch of different things I normally wouldn't have on a regular course. A 7.0 is probably the most I'd give to a par 3 course, though. Lawsonia Links - 7.5 I really enjoyed this course. Overall I found the layout to be good. There were plenty of places to miss, but you still needed to hit good golf shots to play well. I liked the way the mounds and bunkers were designed to play with the shape of the holes visually. There were really only a couple of holes I didn't like - 13 in particular, even though I made par both times using completely different strategies. It's just bordering on too many blind shots for me, though. I'd definitely play this course again if I have the chance. Mammoth Dunes - 8.5 This course was spectacular to look at - absolutely visually stunning. The pictures don't do it justice because they fail to capture the scale of everything. The place is massive. I'll echo what the others have wrote above: it's a journey. You feel like you're not going out to play a round of golf, but rather that you're going on an adventure while hitting a golf ball on the way. I understand now how some other reviews I've read or seen describe a feeling of getting lost, or losing your bearings for a bit. I wasn't thinking about routing. I had no idea where the clubhouse was. I didn't really care about any of it because I was out in this beautiful landscape. The golf itself for me was just there. I would be perfectly happy spending an afternoon just walking the course without playing it. And that's a bit of a detriment, because at the end of the day, it is a golf course. As a golf course, I found it didn't really matter much how you played it as long as you hit decent shots. There was certainly an ideal way to play the course well, and I hit some awful shots and paid the price for them, but plenty of just okay shots I got away with because of the layout. In the end that's fine. I don't need every course I play to be a grueling test of my skills.  I'd make a return trip and play this course again. Sand Valley - 9.0 This one is a golf course first and a spectacular view second. Where Mammoth Dunes focuses on the adventure, Sand Valley focuses on the golf. It's still visually stunning, but just not quite on the grand scale that Mammoth Dunes is. And Sand Valley does not let you forget for even one second that you're out there to do one thing: to play golf. I don't remember having a single shot out there that didn't require my undivided attention. The course absolutely punished you for missing your spots. But the flip side of that coin is that it was extremely rewarding to hit good shots there. An example is #8 mentioned above - I don't think I have ever felt so pleased to hit a GW to 35' before in my life, and I might never again. The course is a challenge in the best way. It makes you want to rise up to face it. I want to go back and battle it again. I shot my best score of the week with an 87 at Lawsonia, but it's the 94 the second time playing Sand Valley that I'm most proud of. Like Mammoth Dunes above, I'd make a return trip specifically to play this course again. Bonus Stuff The facilities at Sand Valley Golf Resort were top notch. The prices at the pro shop were fair. The food and drinks were also reasonably priced and delicious. The food truck at The Sandbox had the best food in the whole complex, IMO. Lac La Belle I felt was fancy but overpriced. I bought a polo at the pro shop at Sand Valley, but a similar shirt at Lac La Belle was like 50% more expensive. The golf carts had beautiful leather seats, but I absolutely hate geo-mapping on the GPS systems. I don't know how many times it slowed me down to tell me not to drive in the fescue even though I was driving parallel to it 20 yards away. Lawsonia had an older clubhouse and it certainly had a quaint feeling to it. That's not a bad thing. I did not look to see the prices they were charging for their merchandise.
    • Every YouTube video should start with a 10- to 45-minute diagnosis to make sure the video you're about to watch applies to you. There are a LOT of reasons why someone hits a slice. YouTube videos do not start with a 45-minute "disclaimer" because nobody would get through it. They just want to stop slicing, but if the video shows a fix for something that the student doesn't do, the video is less than worthless — it may actually cause more damage. Don't watch YouTube videos unless they're just working on some fundamental things, or you're very confident that what they're going to show you actually applies to you.
