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.

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!

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.

    • While not as exciting as doing it on a par 72 course, finally did break 80 yesterday - 78/Par 70. It was a solo round so can't post. It's my first ever no-sixes round but since I can't post the score I won't ask for credit yet.  Also first ever round with no penalties! Disclaimer - our course is fairly flat and easy. But it has a butt load of OBs. You do have to hit a fairly wild tee shot on most of them to actually land it but only three holes do not have an OB lurking. So it's kinda an accomplishment all of it's own for me. Heh heh.  Driver has been friendly, irons continue to be reliable. Putter acting like a diva but I think I've got her number.  My work since the GEARS visit is actually sticking it seems..!! I am still hitting plenty of garden variety shitty shots but am playing some good golf lately and terribly happy at how the things are shaping up. 
    • Just to look at the good things. It's good to find the positives.  1. Backswing length, much better.  2. Overall how the body is turning is better. It's probably the best it looks right now.  Thoughts on what I need to work on. 1) Keeping the right elbow from collapsing so much in the backswing. Might be time to invest in some swimming floatation devices 😉. It might be easier for me to get the angle out of my right elbow if I had less angle there to begin with. 
    • My hats off. Putting stats like that on any of them PH greens is fantastic. Well done!
    • A young story and an old story!  Yesterday I played Pinehurst #6. A foursome was scheduled but only two of us showed up. I knew one person and the other was a father and daughter. Well only the daughter showed and off we went.  So.  I was 50 years older than her, she is 17 and a very good golfer. She’s off to Norte Dame on a golf scholarship next year after she completes high school. She’s a +2 HDCP. So off we go, she’s playing a hybrid set of tees I’m playing White tees. She hits it straight and decently long for her age.  We are both even thru 3 holes until I make a double on the 4th hole. By the time we finish the front I’m 2 over and she’s 1 over. Back nine I had 1 birdie, 2 bogey’s and the rest were pars for a 75. She shoots 34 on the back with 3 birdies, two were back to back.  A71 for her.  She will be playing in the Woman’s  North South here next week and the Junior as well.  She has no desire to become a Pro Golfer, she is going to Medical School to become an Anesthesiologist.  Impressive I thought! Todays old story…played with two old guys, one is 85 but plays ok and the other was 79. I’m the young guy at 67.  What a comedy!  I could tell immediately they play a lot together as the ribbing never stopped.  I quickly learned to stay alert as their shots started going everywhere!  Then the 85 year old guy gets the shanks! Never seen it so bad and I’ve had them a few times but never like this. The other guy played a very military game with shots left, right, left and so one. The on the 9th hole the 79 year old left a club on the previous hole and left to get it. Then the 85 year old checks his bag and the lost club is in it. Off he goes to get the other guy. They return eventually as the 1st guy went two holes back searching for his club. I’m in the fairway on the 10th hole waiting and here they come.  So then the 79 year old turns his cart steering wheel tightly to turn around and somehow gets the tow hook caught over the right front wheel axle rod so now the cart can only go in a circle!  It took about 15 minutes to figure that out! We fixed it using one of his irons to pull the tow hook loose! What next I thought.  We finally finished. The good news there was we finished in 2hrs 40min! Happy 4th!
