  1. Welcome to TST. Nice introduction. We're glad to have you join and participate. You'll find Snell balls tend to be one of the favorites here and on other forums. Do a quick search on Dean Snell and you'll be impressed with his background, knowledge and his golf balls.
  2. Usually during the winter I join the Davison Athletic Club to use their 3 hitting bays but because of Covid-19, they aren't taking any new members. I had the opportunity to play Sugarbush 10/23. (Very nice and very challenging course) They are putting some big bucks into their club house, renovating the menu and adding 3 simulators. Since I didn't have a winter plan to stay active, I decided to ask about their winter membership. They have a winter membership from November 1st thru March 31st. Their winter membership cost $600 ($500 if paid by 10/31). At $30/hr it doesn't take long to recoup the cost. I decided this was a great deal to keep active and purchased the membership. I was/am looking forward to using the simulator to play the many courses but also the "range" to work on my swing. Yesterday they had their "renovations open house". I left a long hike with our Meet-up group early to make the open house and when I walked in they asked if I wanted to sign up to use the simulators and enter the give away drawing. Within minutes I was the proud winner of a "winter membership"! I now have two memberships. My golf partners live about 30 minutes away and decided they wouldn't use it enough to justify their drive. With my membership they can play whenever I play at no cost anyway. Go figure! I'm going to enjoy the winter using the simulators.
  3. He's putting in the work. 211 mph ball speed is very impressive.
  4. This is the first year we have missed both Garland and Treetop in the last 5 years. I really didn't miss Treetops except the par 3 but I do miss Garland. I'm glad you were able to enjoy them.
  5. Secured #6 today before the severe thunderstorms rolled thru town. I still need #2 and #8.
  6. Welcome to TST. See how easy it is to participate? We're glad you've decided to join.
  7. How funny is that! We bought 4 and only could find three players. I have one myself and don't know when or if I'll get to use it. I called Monday and they were full and didn't see any openings for singles except early in the morning before most golfers go out but... because of the frost, they were delaying tee times. If somebody wants mine, I'll donate it too. Thanks @Wally Fairway for thinking for me. If they aren't used by November 1st, the money spent is still good. That isn't eliminated. You can use the voucher toward the price of a round next year.
  8. If it was one of your golfing buddies maybe, but not somebody you don't personally know.
  9. I believe I'd echo what @DaveP043 stated. I'd personally prefer to be Mr. Consistent but it looks like Mr. Erratic may have more potential down the road.
  10. I like your optimism but that was over 25 years ago. Are you really "Arnold" and meant to say, "I'll be back"? Anyway, I'm glad the doctor cleared you. Congrats on a full recovery.
  11. Again, we have places for people like you! 🤪 Welcome @Neil D. You've found the best place on the web to talk golf.
  12. In my away courses, I need 2,6 and 8. My home course, I've only played 5 times with 3 birdies. The season is almost over here because I'm not as robust as @bkuehn1952.
  13. I didn't realize that Asics were into golf. I'm in the market for spiked golf shoes next year and may have to give them a look. Thanks for sharing.
  14. My wife and I fight over the thermostat in the house. I would be one to annoy you too.
  15. I set up a reminder to cancel my XM radio subscription each year. The renewal fee is significantly higher than what I pay. It's easy to have a reminder to cancel subscriptions.
  16. Member tees aren't listed on the score card. What are they? A hybrid of white and green?
  17. I grew up with a guy that would argue with a telephone phone and win. With my wife, I've learned to just roll my eyes. She said it helps to straighten my back. I must have the straightest back of anybody I know!
  18. @Billy Z Congrats on the accomplishment! Make sure to claim your achievement.
  19. A course near me has done major renovations to their club house. They have added 4 simulators, upgraded their menu, added a variable putting green with very reasonable winter rates. $600 from November 1st thru March 31st. 2 hr/day time limit. I think that will help with the winter blues.
