  1. Thanks I got a free round at Traditions
  2. Google does a pretty good job in their maps if you type in golf course you get nearly all of them.
  3. Not the OP, but I went out and ended up playing Terra Lago South and Mission Hills Dinah Shore on Saturday. Played Terra Lago because I found a good morning tee time for $50. I thought it was well worth it. I am not a fan of the cement irrigation streams, also at silver rock, but still happy with the decision to play there. Interestingly enough I read the greens on the back 9 at Terra Lago were having trouble but I thought they were better than the front. I wonder if they alternate cutting days because on the front the ball didn't run out and died in the last 6 inches.
  4. Joe thanks for posting this article. I have no idea why courses want to overseed. Maybe someone with experience could tell me why. Is it a concern with growth and divots on courses that receive significant play? I hate playing courses that are overseeded.
  5. I think you missed the part about moving to the listed places because of a job (military).
  6. Honestly you can't go wrong with any of your choices. My wife is stationed in Ft. Walton. For base courses you have the course on Hurlburt (fun place and in pretty good shape), two courses on Eglin (one of the courses is in the discussion for best DOD courses), and then Tyndall isn't too far away. For off base golf you don't have anything that is top 100 quality but it's affordable and pretty good (lots of places offer military discounts). Tampa is the area I know the least about but a resort that may become Bandon Dunes of FL (
  7. Pasatiempo used goats for a few years in a row. http://pasatiempomaintenance.com/2011/10/19/theyre-baaaaack/
  8. With all the recomendations for Coronado I don't want you going in thinking your going to get a perfectly manicured course. It's a fun round and the price is right. As far as Sea-N-Air the front and back 9 are very different. The front has a man made pond in play on nearly every hole. I don't enjoy the front 9 much but my dad really loved it. I really like the back 9 as it's not as man made and goes into the dunes. I'd recomend you have your son take you to Coronado in the morning and then play the back 9 on Sea-N-Air after. Mirimar is usually the best conditioned military course in the
  9. Aside from the things mentioned I'll add two more potential reasons. People like the ocean and the cliff side golf offered at many courses in Ireland. Also a visitor is able to play nearly all the courses in the country. So playing the best courses is only a matter of paying for it...very different from the US where many of the nicest courses are not accesible for visitor play.
  10. In addition to those already mentioned a historic green no longer in existence because it was a bit to extreme is the 18th at Sitwell Park seen below.
  11. Anyone purchase the discounted golf equipment and apparel offered on cyber monday. I thought a wicking long sleeve ping shirt from Golfsmith was a pretty good deal at $17.
  12. NCR is still ranked 71 in the Golfweek top 100 classic courses in the US. The lists that are being posted on this site are open to input from anyone. That is to say a GM at one of the courses could give his/her course a perfect score and give really low scores to their competitors. More likely however I figure a person who typically plays average to below average courses plays a pretty nice course and ranks it with perfect scores because it is the best thing they have ever seen. While the major publication rankings (Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golf Wekk) have some flaws to t
  13. To comment on the reply about Lost Canyons...I play it when they have $59 all day deals and get 2-3 rounds in. The afternoons there tend to get windy.
  14. To add some... 16 at Cypress Point 17 at St Andrews (Old) 4 at Fishers Island 16 at Bandon Dunes (the wind makes this hole so not sure the simulator will work that in) 10 at Riviera 13 at Augusta 7 at Pine Valley
