  1. patch summer it up pretty well. it is not course you want to walk and I found the caddy to be well worth the expense. the putts break to the mountain...which sounds simple enough but I couldn't read them worth a damn. All in all greens are fast, course is in great shape and they leave plenty of space between groups. they do a great job with service from the time you enter the gates till you leave. I would play again with a doubt.
  2. just as a question, assuming you are not playing alone, why not strap your bags on a cart and just walk the holes? it wouldn't be an issue...nobody is going to care if you walk? if you have a long walk from green to T jump in the cart...I mean honestly I enjoy a good walk (with a caddie) but there are a 100 ways around a rule if it matters to you. think outside of the box just a little bit.
  3. When we played the southern end our lineup was Caledonia, Dunes Club, True Blue, Willbrook, TPC, and Prestwick. The Dunes club and Caledonia are the best courses on the strand BY FAR in my opinion, we used to play them every trip regardless of where we were staying.
  4. I have had good experiences with TPC - it is a tough golf course but good one.
  5. Shipsticks is awesome, I have used them several times and lot it.
  6. thanks have fun.
  7. The wee between Christmas and New Year I am taking my 2 boys down with me, some cheap winter (by NC standards) golf. I am using it as a scouting trip for April annual; guys trip. I am looking to expand the course a little bit this year. 8 rounds - I am the planner I have the below list kind of confirmed, any other suggestions? Pine Needles 2x Pinehurst #7 and 9, possible 4 or 8 but regardless 2 of these 4. Southern Pines Need 3 complete, I am trying to keep prices a bit lower due to the above being premium, but at the end the golf is more important then the price. We have played Mid South, Talamore, Mid Pines, Tobacco Road, Dormie, Pinewild both courses over the years. plus several PH courses. Is there any good to very good places I am missing?
  8. the very reason it is a great system is because of the electoral college...it represents in spectacular fashion. Democrats loved it in 2008...apparently not so much now.
  9. I actually feel bad for liberals, the ones who are sincere and American at least. You should be pissed, you were fed a pile of sh!t from your Party leadership, you were handed the most worthless unlikable corrupt candidate ever, who had so many holes in her story that she couldn’t hardly defeat Bernie Sanders in the primary. A man who has accomplished nothing in his life on his own….I would be mad as well. The truth is I am not happy with Trump, he is flawed for sure and now we will be forced to find out what he truly believes. The DNC and the partners in crime the RNC, are the losers, the establishment, the lifers, the inside the beltway people. These are the ones who created Trump and ultimately made him win. The rank and file are not all that different. Sure the Dems are misguided and don’t understand how big complex things work but for the most parts you mean well. The rednecks from the other side… well they are fine enough folks but at the end of the day all they want to do is work, live well and get Uncle Sam off their backs. This election is about correcting 20 years of abuse by government, the PC crowd, the fact they are in our bedrooms and bathrooms, the over regulation, the refusal to protect our borders, the refusal to take care of the US, the failure to show any balls dealing with our associates around the world, the over regulation of our businesses and lives…the list could go on. At the end of the night this was a huge middle finger to the leadership of both parties from both parties and I personally am proud to be a part of that.
  10. it looks tom me like the new hole is going to be a pretty hard dogleg left...into large area of trees. The hole may not be great but for 25 or 30 it will be fine...just saying.
  11. I feel that you can go from high HC (18-22 range) to mid (8-12) just by course management and removing the terrible shot. To go from an 8 or 10 to 2,3,4 takes much much more detail and improvement IMO. I was an 18 the first time I got official HC when I joined my club, with in 4 years I was down to a 10, 2 more years I got an 8...and that was as low as I have been. I bought a new business, stopped practicing very often, my game has slowly slid back to a 10 or 11...the last 2 years it has been stuck there. I never go higher because typically I don't make the big mistake, I learned how to work my way around the course without having the game I need, it seems I can post an 84 or 85 at will but to get back to an 81 or 80 just doesn't happen very often. I do miss those occasional 77 or so rounds when I was playing better! they were fun.
  12. obviously you have bought into the accountability myth...it is the arrow not the archer!! Next thing you know you are going to tell me that missed putts aren't due to poorly maintained greens....please stop the madness!!
  13. they run out of good shots, they tend to start missing left, they aren't as pretty as they once were...there are new ones at the store that go longer and never get off line...
