Why aren't you playing more golf?  

89 members have voted

  1. 1. What are the obstacles that are preventing you from playing more golf?

    • Lack of available time
    • It's tough to get my buddies together
    • Too expensive
    • I don't have a lot of people to play with, and I don't like playing as a single
    • If I played any more golf my spouse would divorce me
    • If I were a better golfer I think I'd play more often
    • Nothing is stopping me, I play as much golf as I want

Picked lack of time, but bear in mind I only started 18 months ago I'm fully in the early addiction stage where when I'm not playing I'm reading up on equipment, trying to work through swing flaws and fit in a full time job, wife and kids. So def not enough hours in the day for me...

Yay, PaddyMac! I too have known the addiction, and I'll wager everyone else on this forum has too! One thing though from an old hi capper... You used the term "swing flaws". Pretty soon you'll be thinking "There is something wrong with [me] [my swing] [my abilities] [what else?]" The earlier you can ditch the negative ideas like "There's something wrong", the sooner you can find the joy of it all. But as my son says, if you want to listen to the ramblings of a crazy old man, talk to my Dad!" :-D Best wishes to you, -Marv

Weather play a part for me. Courses close late October to late march/early april. Thanksgiving weekend up here. My wife and I are playing today, high of 51 and Monday, going up to 58. Sunny both days. Looks like it might be over. High 30's with snow next week.

We still work so once a week gives us time to do chores.

Thank goodness we discovered simulators at the indoor practice area.

I play every day Monday through Friday and used to play Saturday and Sunday but, the course is too crowded on the weekends for me. I can't take playing a 4 1/2 to 5 hour round of golf.

She’s a trooper. Only snowed twice during the round.

Where on Earth do you live? Is there a course at the Arctic Circle that I don't know about?

My 2 major complaints would be lack of time and expense.

Definitely need to get out more. Young children and both me and my wife work full time so it's difficult but I want lower my handicap. We'll see.

Time is the #1 culprit.  Work always seems to get in the way of my golf game.  If it's not time, then it's the weather.  This year has been unusual September here in the Rockies as it rained a lot more than usual.

I am hoping it doesn't snow too much in the foothills of the Rockies this winter and that all the snow ends up on the slopes so I can snowboard in the morning and play golf in the afternoon.  Oh and that work doesn't get in the way.
