Hi folks! I’m really enjoying the posts I’ve been reading—y’all sound like a real nice crowd! Although I’ve lived in Miamisburg (just outside of Dayton) for 20 years now, I’m originally from Austin, Tx. The intrigue of golf kind of snuck up on me. As a kid I thought I’d rather watch paint dry than watch golf but now as I look in the mirror at my middle-aged self I realize that golf and I were meant to be. I have played in a 9-hole novice/experienced scramble exactly twice and I fell in love. I’m told I’m pretty accurate and fairly consistent with a decent drive for a newbie but I am not experienced enough to judge. All I know is that playing, however briefly, felt like it was a natural fit. Now if I could just learn which club to use when! I don’t have friends who play so I have not pursued the game beyond those two times but am anxious to. I just started a golf class at the university and so far I am loving it. Can you all give me some advice as to how I can get “plugged in”, meet some people to play with who wouldn’t mind a novice with some promise (I’m told 🤔), and get out there and learn!? Thanks, Kasey
Hey guys, how are you? I am a beginner who is slowly getting into golf and I've been going to the driving range in order to practice some shots. I do not hit well yet, but I would like to know your stories on how did you pass from hitting on the Driving Range to play a course. I mean, I wish to know how you knew you were ready for playing a course and starting the process of getting your own handicap. I get anxious of playing a course! I still haven't got clubs, since I will be bringing them with me on April when I visit Miami, so nowadays I have practiced with clubs borrowed from the driving itself.
