The recycling center overlooks the 9th green.  As soon as the bin is full I'll be heading over.  Which reminds me...I'd better see about emptying a few more of these beer bottles.

In der bag:
Cleveland Hi-Bore driver, Maltby 5 wood, Maltby hybrid, Maltby irons and wedges (23 to 50) Vokey 59/07, Cleveland Niblick (LH-42), and a Maltby mallet putter.                                                                                                                                                 "When the going gets tough...it's tough to get going."

Every year I organize a group of about 20 guys and we all go down to Pinehurst.  It is amazing and a lot cheaper than you may think.  The accommodations are great and the golf is amazing at not only Pinehurst resorts but the surrounding golf courses as well (probably 30 other courses to play).  I would highly recommend Pinehurst if you have not been there yet!

I would ad the Kohler resort, Whistling Straits as a must do.  Not cheap but everyone that went on our trip said they want to go back.

These 4 are all on my bucket list. Enjoy!  I’m hoping to pick one for a trip for my 40th bday next summer. I’m not sure if I’ll make a trip happen to play anywhere special this year but I’ll drive over to St. Louis to watch the pga champ which falls on my bday.

I would also recommend Bethpage, there are 5 courses I believe, all named by color.  Black is obviously the one to play and the hardest to get on.  I've played that once, and it took us two tries to get on.  If you are going to try to play that course and you are NOT a residence of New York, there are a few hoops you will have to jump through.  If you are military as well, they do a very generous military discount. 

The rest of the courses vary in difficulty and are not as hard to get a tee time for.  I would put this on a bucket list if it's not already.

Streamsong in a month. Playing 7 rounds in 3.5 days. All walking. Can't wait!

Played Blue last year. Absolute treat. Walking is the best way to go for sure. Will try and go back to play the other 2 towards the end of the year.

In mid March me and some buddies are going to a course called Tanglewood in Kentucky for the weekend. We talked to them at a Golf Expo we went to, and they got us a great deal. 3 rounds of golf with carts, and 2 nights in a condo on the course for about $150 per person. 

The course is about an hour west of Lexington and about an hour southeast of Lousiville.

After going vacation-free in 2017, my lot and I are headed back to the Outer Banks in May. Along with a bunch of loafing on the beach, we figure to play three rounds at courses to be determined. 

Last time we went, Currituck Club busted my teeth out. I feel like I owe it something.

Just returned from a trip to St. George, UT and Laughlin, NV. Next trip will in June to Charleston, WV. Hopefully I will travel within the year to Senegal, Ghana, South Africa Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho. A trip to Myrtle Beach in November and several trips of 2 or 3 days to Northern Michigan. That is what semi-retirement is all about.

    • @bkuehn1952Thanks for that response.  What is the value in 90% handicap.  I understand how it would lower the HCP of the best players, but wouldn't it harm the high handicappers?   Thanks.    
    • I love the grind. I learned to love it from Mr. O’Grady. We would show up at sunrise and leave at sunset every single day of a MORAD school. Wish he’d let me go to another one.   I do a 90 minute to 2 hour session everyday. 30 minutes mechanics. 30 minutes measured practice hitting to targets and measuring proximity… Then 30 - 60 minutes either on mechanics again or playing a simulated round.
    • Use official handicaps. Make everyone who plays sign up for a handicap. Using handicaps based on tournament play is better but it takes a long time for a player to have a reasonable number of scores. Yes, the new handicap system starts at three scores but I think the resulting number has low credibility. Also, it takes a bit of work to calculate the “C” handicap. If you have 40 players, make two flights. Make the split wherever it needs to be to get equal flights.  If there is a large spread in the high and low index in each flight, consider using a percentage of the handicap (90% is recommended). Your Club Champion should be the player with the lowest gross average over the season with a minimum number of events required (5?). You can also award “Net Player of the Year” to the member who wins the most gift certificates.
    • Been on the diet since April 2019. I take it to prevent cluster headaches, which I've suffered from since age 13. The keto diet somehow stops neurological issues like epilepsy and cluster headaches for some reason. They don't really know for sure how. I suspect it has something to do with an inflammation reduction, at least in regards to the cluster headaches. There are also some possible benefits for alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder as it's called now. The Ketogenic Diet May Play a Role in Treating Alcoholism This dietary intervention may help with detox and cravings. The diet's not for everybody though, agreed there. I think a lot of people do great on carbs. I however definitely don't unfortunately. Keto helps me a lot.
    • It is interesting that according to the poll, more members carry a 4 or 5 iron than a 9 iron. I suspect some responders may have misunderstood the question and listed their longest iron rather than all the irons they carry. Or maybe the info is spot on.
