  4. My club is pretty much back to normal. 2 riders per cart, rakes in bunkers, ball washers with water, food available inside, etc. Masks are optional except for staff...they must wear masks. The number of rounds is still very high and our number of golf members is close to maximum.
  5. I enjoy competitive golf over just knocking it around with my buddies. I have to concentrate more in competitions. I generally have no problem playing with anyone. I don't care if you are scratch of a 30 handicapper. If you tend to get obnoxious, I can fire that back also. Hardly ever happens. I play my own game and do not pay great attention to what others are doing. I enjoy the game too much to limit who I will play golf with.
  6. Interesting thread. I belong to a couple of traveling golf leagues as well as a couple of golf clubs. We too have to either respond to a call for players email or we have to call the club to get entered. Rarely do we have an event that fills up as quickly as the OP has indicated here. I would imagine in our case, we don't have what seems to be an abundance of members as the OP's club does. Sounds to me like OP needs to have a discussion with the Committee handling registration. Or he needs to do what we have to do if you want a good tee time on Saturday...start calling at 6:30am because
  7. First guy I noticed years ago who had it near the heel at address.
  8. The ball is not lost. The ball is "holed" and it is over at that point. No penalty for dropping and nothing else you do counts. ALWAYS look in the hole.
  9. Depends on how many times you play during a year and what cart rental fee is. I pay almost that much and it is a deal for me. Of course, I have played 124 rounds on my home course so far this year.
  10. I finally retired last August after 41 years 11 months 9 days with one of the largest oilfield equipment and service companies in the world. My last gig there was VP of IT. I must admit, I miss the professional interaction, getting to fly all over the world on the company dime, eating out at great restaurants worldwide and staying in very nice hotels. Do not miss the politics that were ever present the last 6 years.
  11. oh...bout that much. 😃 I read all your comments on this thread. Like you, way back when, I just lined up Titleist with the path I wanted the ball to travel on. Later on, I came to realize that was mostly a waste of time for me. I put personal markings on my ball for identification purposes but nothing to aid with alignment.
  12. I wish someone having lines on their ball was the most I had to worry about in golf. I could care less. It is not illegal, so it does not matter.
  13. Anything outside of 75 yards, I want to bring it in high because I typically will hit a full shot. Now, inside of 75, getting a bit too close for my LW so I tend to hit knock down type shots which will come in lower. If I can't reach a green, I prefer to be 75 yards or more out so I can hit a full shot. I hate 30 or 40 yard shots, especially over bunkers.
  14. I do miss the handshake on 18. Our deal now is we touch putter heads after the round. I still remove my cap/hat when doing so.
