  1. I have played it. Its an expensive course (for county residents as well) and only 9 holes. I am looking for an 18 hole course I can play on weekends.
  2. I live in Jersey City, NJ. Looking around my area, I see two golfing options within reasonable driving distance (around 30 - 40 mins) for the up coming season. 1) Buy a player's card to play in Union county. golf courses include Galloping Hills and Ashbrook 2) Buy a player's card to play in Essex county. Courses include Weequahic, Francis Byrne and Hendricks Field. Which player's card should I purchase ? out of the 2 which offers the best bang for the buck.
  3. I am in the market for a new golf bag. I like walking so I want something that is light, easy on the back but also durable. Some of the names I have found interesting are DaTrek go lite pro & Sun mountain 4 5 . What bag would you suggest for someone who prefers to walk the course ?
  4. I am looking for an instructor in or near Manhattan. Any recommendations ?
  5. I will be going to maui in the first week of September. What are some interesting courses I can play at ? The plantation course is on my list. Any website where I can get cheaper tee-times in Maui ?
  6. Agreed but if it ingrains distance control on putts between 5 to 45 feet it might be worth it. Not really sure how effective this thing is though.
  7. Has anyone used the puttist ? Looks like a really cool idea to ingrain distance control on your putts . It is a bit pricey though. http://www.puttist-usa.com/
  8. Next time you go up there, try Eagles Nest. Its an awesome course as well, in the same league as Angus Glen.

    Driver Loft

    how much does it cost to be fitted for all the clubs ? Any idea. Although I still consider myself a high handicapper , I think fitting might help drop my handicap by 4-5 strokes.

    Driver Loft

    I play with a 10.5 degree driver and hit my driver a fairly decent distance ( 235 - 250 with roll). My playing partners have been commenting that I am hitting the ball too high which is probably robbing me off some distance. Would moving to a driver with lower loft (9.5 or 8.5) help gain some distance ? How difficult is it to hit a lower lofted driver ? Can i get my current driver bent to 9.5 ?

    Golf GPS

    So birthday coming up, I am looking for a Golf GPS device not more than $300. I don't want to pay an annual subscription fee. What are my options ?
  12. Anyone knows golf courses reachable by public transport in the New York City / Jersey City ? I am sick and tired of playing Van Cortlandt and Dyker. I need some change. I usually play alone or with a friend so zipcar is too expensive for us.
  13. Here is a list of courses I like in the greater toronto area. - Silver Lakes ( North of highway 404). Well kept and challenging. - Osprey Valley . Links style and challenging but fun. - Angus Glen ( pricey, the Canadian Open was held here) - Eagles Nest (again pricey but if you play after 12 , its a good deal) - Ballantrae golf club ( Amazing twilight rate) - Richmond hill Golf club ( course is short 6000 yards. on weekends you can replay for free but cart is not included. Not a bad deal for $89).
  14. I live in the land of 6 hours rounds too, and I chip to keep my sanity. Don't like staring at hackers who insists on walking and take 5 practice swings before blading/shanking their ball. Never had anyone complain about chipping though. Where were you playing ? VC or Dyker ?
  15. I know people say short game is key, but its important to hit your driver on the fairway or close by. A well hit driver will leave you with an 8 iron or less into the green on an average par 4. That is important. I am able to hit 6-8 GIRs per round and I think thats mostly due to my driver. No need to hit it very long, just keep it in play.
