  1. @David in FL 👍 Not sure what or why the "Likes" feature is not showing up? But thank you for your service and to all military service men and women. It will never be forgotten !!!
  2. No riders other than my wife for now. If and when Covid is gone, then I will allow friends, again. As a Member, I'm rarely playing with any strangers other than a members guest who may need a ride. I'd also be good with letting them drive and get some exercise and only ride between green to next tee.
  3. To settle matters for your participants going forward, a decision should be made to clarify your game with this particular hole. Make a ruling that the hole will will played in the game as a Par 4 or Par 5 by all players regardless what the score card indicates. Either as the Manager of the game, or ask your pro or take a vote by the players for this rule for your game. Keep in mind, the final score will still be entered by all players to their Ghin as per usual.
  4. Net 3 beats a Net 4 Regardless of the Hole Par being different for course setup. Example: Men versus Women, hole handicaps are always different. A par 4 on a hole may be #10 Hdcp for Men while it's the #1 Hdcp hole for Women They both score Gross 4, but the Woman would have a Net 3 Different Pars for a same hole are not that uncommon. Since the hole you mention plays as a par 4 from certain tees and a par 5 at the other tees. par 5 (Silver) - Par 4 (Copper)
  5. Looks like a Swisher Sweet, only hers got packed with Crab Ass instead....
  6. The Mizuno JPX model is one of the easiest drivers to control. I can control ball flight for any direction or flight with ease. It is the most effortless driver I have ever played.
  7. I've collected scorecards I've played for years of various courses all over. During my ski bum days, I would hang them on a small Christmas tree for decorations and as a conversation piece when friends would come over. I would place my best rounds on the fireplace mantle. A friend used to keep the cards and mark the days and scores on a calendar. Now, I more into using electronic scoring and seldom write on a card, except in events when cards are the only means accepted. Nothing pretty about the App scorecard, just a simple means to track scores for 1-5 players.
  8. Those guys are gone, a "strike-through" the name indicates they were banned from the site. Also, look at the dates of the posts. 2016 - 2017 Not very likely they will reply, but other current members may offer suggestions or information. There are other threads on putting greens, maybe even some as recent as last year.
  9. It's all for the Luv of the Game. The chip in on the 18th hole at Moon Valley is right at the top of my list also... I once was in a high stakes game with a friend and his buddy who was the course Pro. We were getting our butts kicked thanks to my sorry ass partner playing poorly. I kept pressing the bet up knowing I still had something in the bag to break even. That break came on the 17th hole a long par 4. I holed a 50ft foot to win over $350 and break even for the day. Dumb Ass Luck IMO, I should have written the day off as a loss when we were $50 down after the turn.
  10. Reminiscing about many of the great matches I have participated, one I will always remember, was an annual Club Match with our neighboring club. I was playing very well and on the second day, the final nine holes was individual format. We both par the tenth hole, I reached the next hole (par 5) in two and have a 15ft eagle attempt. My opponent makes a thirty foot birdie and I lip out. We par the next hole. Then on the next par 4 I hit the green but was long about 90 feet away. My team mate asked me how I felt about this putt facing me and I said I feel pretty good. I drain it and take a one up lead. Next hole was halved, I then birdie the next par 3 to go two up. The on the next par 5, I'm on in regulation and my opponent had missed the green left. This left him in the red staked penalty which was native grass (2 ft high) He finds his ball and has very little chance to advance, least get a club on the ball, but elects to take a whack at it. I stood and observed from the back of the green. He then starts taking practice swings cutting the tall grass above where his ball lies. I balk that he was improving his lie. Both club pros along with many other members are observing. The opponent claims he didn't breach any rule and this upsets me. Neither pro stepped up to clarify the situation, which also makes me mad. He saves a bogey and I 3 jack missing a 3 footer to close the match. We then hit perfect tee shots and have wedge approaches to a back pin. I airmail the pin and end up in the back bunker, now shortsided and in teh worst bunker on the course (no sand, hard pan with pebbles) With about fifty members observing, my opponent is away and lags to the hole. I concede his par and now face my grim situation playing from the bunker. There was a slim chance if I hit the pin it could stop within a reasonable distance to hole the putt. Missing the pin would most likely leave me 20-30 away as the pin location was on an elevated plateau and would roll out a long way. I then hit a low spinner dead on, takes one hop, hit the flagstick and drops. The gallery went nuts as I turn to them and yell "How do you like me Now!"
  11. Not really a Theme Song, but on the lighter side of Covid...
  12. My favorite also. I'll just be glad when our club is open, I feel like I'm heading to work to play golf packing a lunch and drinks...
  13. Our owner committed to paying employees through March but has not announced if any future months will be paid. We have a $50 Food Minimum which the owner removed and I contacted the GM and asked if it could be donated to help staff. He indicated yes, so I authorized a $100 charge and hope other member donate also. There are staff members who have been at the club for years, it would be a bad situation if they do not return.
  14. I guess "Stay at Home" is the only option for many Golfers.
