  1. You can put a kitchen sink in there as long as your under 50lbs domestically, I think it’s a bit more internationally (from experience not by reading the rules). I once put my favorite dress shoes in my golf bag on an overnight HNL-SFO-DFW to Tampa, I barely made it, and my golf bag never did. AA paid me $1500, I took a loss, and now put one of those locators when I travel with my clubs. They were a nice set, and I was young.
  2. I like it, needs electric assist, bags balanced over the back tire, tires look over 2 1/2 inch wide, baby fat tires, I’d ride it. As I get older I may look to buy one, golf cart or bicycle? There’s no question there.
  3. Not because of leaving friends but from careers changes playing less with drinking buddies and more in competition with the wife. I started caring more about my shots, and enjoyed the game a lot more.
  4. I’m in, but I walk the muni 2 to 4 times/week so I’ll pick the three favorite courses nearest me. Hope to play all three multiple times in 2020. Aloha, iSank and yes I have sank = to how many times I have surfaced.
  5. Dagolfer18 that’s beautiful. Played a lot with my brother but not once with dad or grandpa. Enjoy each moment, it’s a gift. For us, it’s Kapalua, 4 days 3 rounds, I like to go Plantation, Bay, Plantation so that’s what we will do. Not real happy about the Plantation soft fairways, I may play forward one set. But it’s Maui, I like my island better but Maui is a beautiful place. Aloha, Happy New Year! Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!
  6. Another vote for faster. The free course where I live has the slowest greens I’ve ever played. Now that I’m on that course a couple times a week, I really appreciate some roll. Just played Koolina Sunday and it was very nice to knock my first out 10 ft past the hole but then got it dialed in. Aloha, iSank
  7. Good for you, if it works out. My girlfriend then my wife has been a great golf partner. But heed the wise words of my predecessors, no teaching, no critiques, focus on your game and stay positive. We have loved our travels together and played some pretty cool courses. Aloha, iSank
  8. Flew over it coming from Kahului and it looked complete then I just saw this and it seems like it’s time to check it out. We are going over for a couple tourney days and hope to play a couple rounds but maybe one Saturday in December. Please tell me the weeds right side on #3 are gone. Aloha, will
  9. Just do not do 36 holes in a day very much if at all but we had a play all day rate at a pretty decent course, Manele, Lana’i if you know it. We played 18 had lunch, went back out but on the last 9 I was swinging pretty tired,so no way could I have walked it. But in my 20 and 30s we played 2 different courses in a day, all walking, feeling good to the last hole. I can give it a try, but I just haven’t done a lot of 36. Aloha, iSank
  10. Well I’ve been blessed in that earlier on, back when our love was young, my wife went to the range with me one night on a holiday, and while spanking a few she asked if we could play a game. I kept away from any instruction was just supportive. Now for your question...tough one. Looking back it was rough going for a while until one day we got paired up with another couple and the other wife was a real professional. On her game, dressed and played sharp, and I think that changed things forever with my wife. Since then we have really enjoyed playing together, but it took years. Everybody is different so you never know. Aloha
  11. Frustrating topic: when I see a course that clearly states no 5somes, I think a bit higher of that place. When they allow it, I go there less, but this course next to where I use to live would always have club play (various golf clubs by association, not by home course and club) in the morning. Last time my wife and I drive up to the on deck area, and one guy ahead of us says I hope your ready for a long day, I replied why? He states we are 6 groups ahead of you, and I reply well as long as everyone sticks to the group ahead of there will be no long day, just make sure your first group knows their responsibility. In the end we finished in 4:15
  12. Current Kirkland ball I’m hitting is the 3 piece made in China. Core, mantle, cover but the price was right so when I moved to an island with no Costco (nor McDonald’s, nor Home Depot and not even 1 stop light) I packed 3 boxes aka 6 dozen. Headed to Honolulu this weekend, maybe I’ll stop by and look for the new ball. Aloha, iSank
  13. I played a course in New Zealand that was 6 holes, So maybe 999,996 but I made my guess and I’m sticking to it.
  14. Lana’i has 45 so if that’s 45 holes for 3200 people than the world population being what it is, I’ll go with 985,915.5: the .5 is an inexcusably short par 3. Aloha, iSank
  15. I had an eagle on 2 consecutive days, same course different holes but both par 5s, long enough where I had never even made it to the green in 2 previously. It was a nice 3 days at Manele Golf on Lanai. But they were not HIO’s!
