  1. Thats good of NY especially with their amount of cases, I wish Illinois would do something similar. Maybe not near the hot spots, like Chicago and collar counties but we have counties a hundred miles from the danger areas with no cases but same Chicago rules.
  2. Illinois is in a complete shut down even tho 75% of the cases are in Chicago, which makes sense, 8 million people. The thing that I don't get is every county in Illinois has the same shutdown rules yet many county's have 0-1 cases. Many states in the United States have a lot more relaxed rules with hundreds of cases.
  3. All Illinois courses are now closed per our governor Illinois golf courses shut down after a reversal from state officials Illinois golf course owners were informed Thursday afternoon that they would need to close by Friday.
  4. Chicago area some are opening starting today, pay online walk only. Going to play Carriage Green in a bit so ill see if cups are raised. Other courses that I know are just opened are Cog Hill, and Village Green in Glen Ellyn. Illinois courses are saying on web sites per executive order and certain rules.
  5. Bought a shag tube so when my net comes I don’t have to bend over to pick up the balls.
  6. With my extra time at home after playing this game for 40 plus years im going to really work on proper chipping
  7. Just ordered a hitting mat and hitting net so I can keep smacking balls around while were in shut down mode.
  8. I started collecting them when my son moved to South Carolina, I bought all the local ones I could find that him and I played when he was younger. Now when I play out there for visits I try and add. He has the same collection plus a few different ones that I didn't play yet.
  9. No, but im a school bus driver so if our district shuts down for any time I could increase my play.
  10. Most courses I play are on the slower side but a few weeks ago I visited my son in South Carolina. We played a course in Augusta called the River Club. Beautiful shape and super fast greens. I bet I had 6 greens that where 3 putts because I blew the 1st one 10 feet past the hole.
  11. Sounds like fun, living in Illinois years ago my son and I played a hole that was dog leg right with a lake to the right. I pushed my drive which would have been wet but solid ice the ball bounced and skidded across the lake to a chip away from the green. Never could do that in July.
  12. I’m 65 with one knee that needs an overhaul soon, I can walk the 9 comfortably but 18 I need to ride to enjoy it pain free.
  13. Im a month shy of 65 playing my hole life I had my 1st and only eagle this year. 350yd par 4 I holed out a wedge from 118, lol I saved the ball dirt and all and its going to go in a ball display.
  14. A course near my son in South Carolina, Golden Hills has power lines running across a fairway on the back 9 that are in play.
  15. 86, Carillon Golf Course in Plainfield.
  16. After 40 years I took a couple lessons this spring and I finally had my 1St eagle
  17. Give me an account like theirs and I’ll pay double tax
  18. Best lessons I’ve ever had where short game

  20. Taylormade M 2 woods Calloway irons and Cleveland wedges with an Odyssey putter
  21. Timber trails awesome course with 1800 Oak trees, one was off to our right near a tee. I took a mighty swing and the 4 or us ducked while the ball careened 20 feet behind us.
