  1. I've heard great things about it. Saw I think Costco selling vouchers for rounds there but I wound up passing on it once we decided we'd get a membership elsewhere
  2. Respectively: Blackhawk CC. Madison. Odana and Door Creek.
  3. My girlfriend and I just joined a country club for the first time this week, so I've managed to get out and play a bunch already, but I'd never seen wet conditions like this before back when I lived on the east coast, when I golfed in soggy conditions in January and March a few times. The course itself is immaculate but on every shot you have your ball caked in mud. Same thing happened on a few public courses I played on last month. Wisconsin muddiness is quite the thing to behold.
  4. Yeah, it was definitely a blow up hole for them.
  5. Yeah, but think of how many stakes you can make out of those felled trees! Assuming a level surface where there's no slope that'll make a ball travel farther in one direction than another, it won't ricochet farther away than it would have gone if you missed the flag because of basic physics. You can't get more out of a collision than you put in. ___ I personally like putting with the flag in; it saves me time (not a ton, but when I'm playing alone and trying to get done before dark, I never bother with taking out the flag, save for the rare birdie putt), and the math says I will putt better because of the help. I think this rule as stated will lead to a lot of messing around, but I wouldn't be opposed to the earlier suggestion of having the flags be fixed to the cup so they wouldn't move on their own or be player removable (I'm assuming the groundskeepers would want some locking mechanism as a way to get the stick out for maintenance and moving hole locations).

    Play 200

    As long as you (or whoever is playing such a game) aren't holding up play for your group because you need to wait on every green to clear because it's now driveable, I think it's great.
  7. I've only ever used the app. I prefer it, especially since I swap clubs in and out a lot, and I sometimes play with different sets when I travel. I exclude those from my stats, but I still like to have the shot by shot record of all of my rounds, if only for the memories
  8. Amazon has Adidas Tour 360 Boost, FootJoy Hyperflex and DNA all for around $100 depending on color and size. I would rank them in that order, although if you wanted to switch the DNA and Hyperflex based on ease to keep clean, that'd be fair.
  9. I've recently begun playing the Golf Pride Evolution. I break a couple fewer per round, so yay for that. I'm more about the color of the tees I play (neon colors) than anything else. No tee will add so much as an inch to my drive, but I love the sweet colors over the boring natural finish.
  10. I don't, but I wanted to chime in to say thanks for helping to grow the game among the next generation!
  11. Just the opening zeppelins needed to grab market share in pro sports!
  12. BOA's website says that they have a lifetime guarantee, which I assume carries through to a BOA bought on an Adidas shoe. I remember reading that the actual cable is rated for something like 5000 cycles, which is probably longer than the shoe itself will last.
  13. Yah! I'm in central WI. I think. I just moved here and I kinda don't know where anything is, haha. I'm happy to make new golf friends here. Unless @RFKFREAK wants to schlep over to play Intrigue! I feel like I missed a post somewhere...
  14. I loved the idea of the BOA until I tried it on with the Tour 360 Boosts I was shopping for this year at the PGA Tour Superstore. I wound up paying a couple dollars more to not get it. I loved the idea in principle because my previous Adidas Tour 360 ATVs wouldn't stay laced for an entire round, but I didn't like that it concentrated more pressure at the top of the foot versus in the toes. I suddenly missed the ability to adjust that more granularly with laces. It also felt flimsier than I would have liked, though I doubt it actually was. I'm over the moon happy with my Tour 360 Boosts I got last month for $100. I wound up getting my girlfriend a pair in purple for $85 as an early Valentine's Day gift ahead of our golf trip, and she loves them too. I'm curious if this is meant to be Adidas's 2017 flagship shoe. The promotional packaging presentation makes it seem that way, but only six spikes versus the usual 10 is how Adidas tends to differentiate their lower-end golf models. Also, the price point is lower than last year's flagship by $20 ($50 if you apples-to-apples against the BOA version of the Tour 360 Boosts).
  15. Yeah, I doubt Tiger was rocking a middle seat back in steerage.
  16. If you can hit a wall and land the ball on the green, I'm OK with giving you even a bonus negative stroke. It's like my rule with my family rounds where if you hit a bird, it's a birdie.
  17. The rule is what it is, and I'm OK with it. That said, I don't pull the flag when I'm playing by myself unless I'm putting for birdie, and I sleep just fine at night about it.
  18. I don't really mind. It's so lovely in La Jolla and Pebble, especially when it's winter where I am, so I enjoy seeing lovely vistas and outdoor activities alongside the broadcast. I could do with less of Jim Nantz calling us all friends, but otherwise, whatever. It's mostly background for me these days unless it's a close finish.
  19. Not yet. But I have hit other people and things with golf balls, so I say give it time.
  20. I do it primarily because it's cheaper. Exercise is also nice, but if I could, say, walk the front and ride the back, I might. I also love having all of my clubs with me everywhere, and I like being able to bring them into places a cart can't go, like around greens, but also into woods and weird areas. But yeah, if you're walking, golf is a sport. If you're riding, it's a pastime.
  21. Yeah, that's the part of that story that didn't make sense.
  22. Oh good, I was just about to duct tape a soda can to my driver to get the weights right. That was close!
