  1. Sound a lot like the course I almost joined. There are a bunch of great guys there that I enjoy playing with and it isn't crowded at all. If you can get into a course like that with some people you are comfortable with, it makes it worth while...especially at the right price. At least I can still play with them once or twice a month because it is semi-private.
  2. No way...I saved myself the embarassment. I'm going for the US Amateur this year though. I haven't played much competitive golf since college. I finally feel like I have my game to a spot where I can keep from making a fool of myself in front of the better amateurs. I'll try and keep the pics G-Rated. If I get anything...well...you know, I'll send you a message.
  3. I am not. That does not mean that it doesn't make sense for others though. In my area (NC), there are a plethora of good golf courses that are relatively cheap to play. I thought about joining a course close to where I live, but decided against it since I knew I would want to play other courses on a regular basis. Money was another factor, but I wanted the flexibility and not to be tied down to one course. One advantage I of joining that I wish I had was the ability to go out there on a whim. There are many times when I want go out and play 9 or even just a few holes. Later in retirement, I would like to live in a golf course community and be able to walk out the back door onto the course. That will be bliss. Heck, I may have to retire early!
  4. I'll be there on Wednedsay, Thursday and Saturday. I'll try and post some info and pics if I get a chance. I'm looking forward to it as it is my first Major. I've played #5 at Pinehurst and only drooled when looking back up #18 of the #2 course. It will be interesting to see what kind of shape the course is in since the reports (down here anyway) have been pretty iffy about it being Open-ready by next week. I'm sure it will still be better than anything I've seen...although the Wachovia @ Quail Hollow is stunning. Anyway, like I said...I'll try and post some when I get back those nights.
  5. Thanks Cody. You'll hate me when you hear this... I'm going to Myrtle this weekend to play Caledonia, True Blue and TPC @ Myrtle Beach. When I get back, I'm going to the Open Wed, Thurs and Saturday. My anniversary is on Sunday, so I'm sparing my wife that day. I'm only 1 1/4 hours from Pinehurst, so I don't have to worry about accomodations...just travel!
  6. Titleist Pro V1x. I've been playing Titelist since 93' and have gone from: Balata Professional Pro V1 Pro V1x I tried the Maxfli Revolutions for about 2 weeks and they spun like crazy. Went right back to the Titelists and haven't even thought about switching.
  7. Interesting comments...I haven't had a chance to hit these yet but am curious. I'd probably try out the R7 3 wood as well. I still have my steelhead plus and love it so I've never had the need to switch...yet.

  9. Driver: 280 3-Wood: 250 2-Iron: 220 (thinking of switching out with Hybrid) 3-Iron: 210 4-Iron: 200 5-Iron: 190 6-Iron: 180 7-Iron: 165 8-Iron: 155 9-Iron: 140 PW: 130 52*: 115 56*: 100 These are full distances. I usually play each one around 5 yards less. My most versitile club is the 6-Iron. I can play that comfortably anywhere from 165-185. If I'm ever undecided about clubs and a 6 is even in the equation...I usually hit it. Fairways and Greens. NCGolfer
  10. Newbie here. Glad to see a great site and hope to contribute in the future. I'm a transplanted northerner (PA) that followed the good weather down to wonderful North Carolina. Fairways and Greens. NCGolfer
