Favorite Thing About Golf

Dry Tortuga

Recommended Posts

I usually play team sports (mostly hockey) so in those game, you can have a edge on other if you can read/predict play better. Don't get me wrong I like that, but in golf it's only you against the course so it's a different game and really challenging. I also like the fact that you can play with other that are not on the same level as you and still enjoy it since it's not really affecting your game, slow play aside!

For me what I love about golf is while I’m on the course I am only focused on hitting my shots and making my putts. This helped me a great deal after my father passed away. I was able to spend a couple of hours only thinking about golf and not how much I missed him

We bought a house in a bluff overlooking a river. Across the street is the county club. We were looking for a house with a pool but when we saw the view from our deck we fell in love. Our country club family is wonderful. We take the cart to dinner and my wife plays dominos with the women on Tuesday and Thursday.  Poker us Thursday night. For me. We love the club. The cost is roughly what we would have spent on chemicals for a pool.

Thanks guys. Still pisses me off that he beats me most of the time lol.

My father and I could only talk through golf. He wasn’t very good dad. I took it up to get to know him. He would have been 84 yesterday

Nothing better (to me) as going out the club after work and playing 9 holes. No phones. No responsibilities. Just peace and quiet. I also enjoy having a beer when I'm done and sitting outside on the veranda and watching other groups play up the 9th holes on the other courses. It gives me something to look forward to on a Tuesday or Wednesday and keeps me sane.

    • Oh the irony of paying for the highest tech with the lowest tech..!   EDIT: I was thinking of tying a bundle of cash to a falcon.. heh. 
    • Here's the first definition I found online: "a long narrow excavation dug in the earth (as for drainage)" This shallow and moderately wide (in comparison to the depth) depression doesn't fit, in my mind.  I agree that "open watercourse" gives lots of latitude, but I don't believe its intended to include every depression of any kind that holds or carries water in a heavy storm.  To me, unmarked areas are Penalty Areas only when they clearly fit one of the definitions.  Borderline areas, depressions like in the photo we've been looking at, should be considered Penalty Areas only when a Committee chooses to define them as such.
    • Dave, how would you define a ditch? How deep / wide / long must it be to be a ditch and not a depression? Must it not be grass-covered? Something else? The term 'other open watercourse' gives lots of latitude IMO...
    • @GolfLug, send your payment by Pony Express or Western Union or use travelers checks!😜
    • The definition of Penalty Area includes the areas: "Any body of water on the course (whether or not marked by the Committee), including a sea, lake, pond, river, ditch, surface drainage ditch or other open watercourse (even if not containing water)" To me, those shallow grass-covered depressions just don't fit any of those terms.  The closest might be "surface drainage ditch", but to me that is a more sharply delineated area.  The catch-all term "other open watercourse" doesn't apply either, at least the way I read the words.  I think the definition is OK the way it is.
