  1. Good to know Yukari. I played Koolau in April 2014 and didn't find it as bad as you described although it is muddy. Also I've played both Turtle Bay courses and found that the Palmer course is excellent. The only drawback is that it takes awhile to drive out there if you are staying in the city.
  2. All true about Koolau. Same goes for Royal Hawaiian. I would add that both Koolau and Royal Hawaiian is golf in Jurassic Park only Koolau is the one on steroids.
  3. I've lived in OC for my whole life. There are many fine golf courses that suit all levels of ability and price points. There are also several fine courses just outside of the county line which are also very good and offer a wide range of possibilities. What type of course are you looking to play? i.e. public, hard, easy, challenging, high end, etc...
  4. I have played quite a bit of golf on Oahu and Maui since I have family there and visit often. On Maui (in addition to the other suggestions), check out Makena Beach Golf Resort which is a few minutes from Wailea. On Oahu, check out Koolau Golf Club or Royal Hawaiian Golf Club....you won't soon forget the experience or the visuals at these two.
  5. "For some, being an A-hole is a life style." I second this statement....and they are a dime a dozen.
  6. For what it's worth, I absolutely agree with the Mizuno optimizer and will use it again. Three years ago, the optimizer suggested the same shaft - DG S300 XP, for my MP-63's. I couldn't be happier with the flight and feel of the shafts. By the way, I carry my 7-iron about 155-160 yards.
  7. The lowest my team has gone in a 4-man scramble was a 56 (16 under) at Wolf Creek GC in Mesquite, NV. It was during the second day of a golf tournament run by a good friend who had a fun tournament in Mesquite every year. We had 2 eagles, 12 birdies and 4 pars that day. After the first day we were at 7 under par and in the middle of the pack, but after our 16 under performance, we stormed by everyone and won by two. We didn't have any mulligans but we did play with just 3 people who had to alternate hitting the 4th shot because one of our players the night before fell off a table and badly hurt his ankle after drinking too much. I will remember this round for as long as I live. That was a lot of fun to be a part of.
  8. I was recently chosen by TST to test out the 2014 Bridgestone B330 line with Hydrocore. I received the B330RXS based on my specs and they turned out to be fantastic golf balls. The RSX is engineered for swing speeds of less than 105 mph. They performed great for distance (all clubs), spin, durability and soft feel. I highly recommend this ball.
  9. Water with a squeeze of lemon in my reusable bottle.
  10. I have been using a Leupold GX-1 since 2009 and I love it. It is smaller than other rangefinders and gets the job done. I am very happy with it.
  11. It all depends on the conditions and the type of shot I want to play.... Under normal conditions it is my LW which falls under my range for this club. If I want to hit it lower into a breeze or cross breeze, then it might be my SW or GW. It is also a SW or GW if I want to control the spin in which case it would be a shorter back swing and cut off the follow through.
  12. I travel light: Front Right: 1 tee, 2 coins, 1 divot repair tool Front Left: my cash Back Right: nothing Back Left: nothing until I putt, then I stuff my glove here
  13. Easy one for me....Seinfeld....nuff said.
