  1. Not sure if you have gone or not, but Quivera is LEGIT. It was super windy when we went, but it is spectacular. One of those courses with multiple holes that you will never forget. I hated having to deal w all the issues of staying at that resort etc, but am very happy our group played that course. I’d love to hear what you decided and what you thought.
  2. I’ve always wanted to play any of the Desert Mountain courses, so you should definitely play that if you can. Drop talking stick for sure if you can play either DM or 7C. I’d not hesitate to drop Boulders for those courses too. TS is a big drop from those courses. I just played there and they cut down a lot of vegetation and I don’t care for the current look.
  3. The thing that I've noticed when I'm playing my best is my ability to select specific target from behind the ball. Once I set up over the ball I take a deep breath and take one more look at my target and only think about that when I swing. Don't knock it till you try it.

  5. I play all these courses regularly. It all depends on what you're looking for and price points. Don't do TPC. Waste of money and course way overrated. Both Troons are excellent as are both Boulders (South is the better of the two). Both WeKoPa courses are excellent and the Cholla is a more desert-target style course than Saguaro. I think the Cholla is a more beautiful, but more difficult course. I personally find Greyhawk overrated, but they are always in nice shape and have great practice/clubhouse facilities. Quintero is generally excellent as well, and is a lot of locals favorit
  6. Well guys I finally got to play the course. I decided to walk and glad I did. The biggest downside was that it started raining on hole 9 and continued the entire rest of the round. I was prepared for rain and the guys in proshop were nice enough to loan me an umbrella prior to the round. Overall, I had a difficult round due to 2 factors- my shot shape changing from a fade to a pull-pull draw so I had no way to predict it, and it was my first round with my new Edel putter. All in all, I hit a few really great shots intermixed w some bad ones. I think this course had the absolu
  7. I obviously still have a ways to go, but I feel like when I decided to start playing 4.5 years ago I had a lot of muscle memory from tennis that I still have trouble dealing with. Add to that the fact I've likely received less than ideal instruction despite changing teachers (although I admit at this point I am the constant in this equation) and I feel that I may be constantly submarining myself. After reading a few threads on here and realizing that I am probably doing a move or two that a good instructor should be able to pinpoint and explain I think I can get to high singles if I can
  8. If you're a bogey golfer most parts of your game are terrible. My major flaw is inability to overcome my OTT muscle memory. Too many years of competitive tennis has likely made it nearly impossible to ever learn and feel natural coming from the inside. I just don't have enough time to practice and am getting too old. Everytime I have to take a break from playing/hitting my old muscle memory is back to remind me.
  9. I think you are missing the aspect that you probably have a strong mental game. Although you shouldn't try to fix your swing on the course, you seem to focus on the swing so much you block out negative thoughts. Dont fool yourself into thinking that if you were betting against someone for enough $ per hole that you would " motor through the course". Having a strong mental game entails focusing on the present, trusting/being confident and decisive in your shot choices, forgetting the bad/mistakes and remaining loose on the course. For the recreational player who has "patient
  10. Hello all, I'm going to play Pasatiempo in early May around 945am. What tips or info can you impart for getting the most out of the round? Is the weather breezy or cool? Fast greens? Many elevation changes? I know nothing about it other than it's highly rated and Mackenzie designed it and lived on it. Is it a walkable course, or is cart better? Decent practice facilities if I arrive early? Thanks in advance for replies!
  11. There's one of these close by the TPC Scottsdale. My buddy went for a free 30 min demo and was wanting to sign up for 3 lessons. He's like an 11 hcp. It's always booked and hard to work around my schedule to get in. If I get in, I'll report back.
  12. I am waiting on mine to show up soon. The weighting of the putter made such a difference for my distance control. It was crazy how close my putts clustered even if I felt I didn't hit it quite as well as a previous ball. I honestly think the edel will be worth 1-3 strokes a round. And I'm a consistent sub 35 putts/rd putter. I ordered wedges as well. I'm not quite as confident they will help my scores, but we will see.
  13. If you are going to make the trip there and you are determined to play golf then you must do what you can to play Seven Canyons. Unfortunately, I believe they have moved back into a semi-private club. As far as I know you can still play it if you stay at the Enchantment Resort right down the road. Enchantment is is expensive, but I think 5 star quality. Plus, it's location and amenities are fantastic. Even if you can only stay there one night, both the resort and the golf is worth it. The course was not the most pristine when I played it a few years ago, but it likely had minimal
  14. I've played quite a few of the courses in a few states. I'm fortunate enough that I will be able to play Pebble, Poppy, Spanish Bay, and Spyglass on our men's trip this summer. I'm also going out to Carmel in a month or so and am making the effort to get on Pasatiempo. Since I live in the Scottsdale area I must disagree with this list as it pertains to AZ. I actually played WeKoPa Saguaro yesterday, and although it is in great shape and a really nice track it's not No.1. I actually prefer the Cholla course over Saguaro. Quintero has to be No 1. Both of the Troon North courses are e
  15. Since I was fortunate enough to have all the advice given in this thread I figure I should give back to the thread w my experience. I found out out that PGATSS did fittings and the fitter used to be a builder for Bocceri golf. They only offered the torque line, BUT the fitting was free so I got one. He was knowledgeable and I learned a few things. He gave me a sheet w the specs. To be honest though, I didn't like the look of the torque putters and I wasn't fully convinced it was noticeably better than my Scotty golo. Since he had nothing to gain from any purchase I talked through some op
