  1. Have a more golf shirts than I can wear. Most of them were purchased for $30 or less. Right now I only buy new shirts if I'm on vacation or go to a nice club, which unfortunately always cost way more than $30 But besides clubs, I usually notice what apparel my playing partners are wearing. I think it's kind of hard not to
  2. Never walk. Was a caddy as teenager, I walked the course then because it was my job, Now if I am on the golf course it is to enjoy myself, not work. So no walking for me, unless I'm on a course that demands it, and in that case better be a top notch course
  3. I'm rocking with 4 wedges and it definitely has helped my game: 43, 48, 52 and 56 degree
  4. Use to carry a the same thing. Got me out of a lot of jams
  5. Since I don't play competitive golf, I have 17 clubs currently in my bag. D, 3W, 5W, 2-4 H, 4-9 irons, PW, AW, 52, 56 and P. Also since I play an array of courses all over the place I never know what I will need on any given day. On the rare occasion where I'm playing in a match and not playing Wolf, I'll take out my 3W, 3H, and 4I. But that is few and far between
  6. Play a rotation of 4 courses or so between 10 and 40 minutes away. We have a solid 4 ball for most weekends, every once in a while if someone can't make it we'll fill it in without any problems. Might join a semi-private club next year on a credit line membership since one of the 4 in our rota is closing. If you want to join a full time club around me you're paying no less than 13G's in membership fees plus the minimum dining charges per month. etc. Just can't see spending that kind of money
  7. Haha. Meant Willow Creek was on the bottom.
  8. Played 3 of these. Favorite in order - Lido, Harbor Links and at the very bottom Harbor Links. Just not a course I've ever scored well on. Hope to play the Bethpage complex one of these years, but going to LI is such a chore
  9. Like others have said it really is depends who fits you. I was fitted this spring based on ratings and recs at CC. Overall, the fitting was great, but getting the clubs took forever. The local PGA SS has great ratings for their fitters from outside sources. When I needed to get fitted for fairway woods in May, went to them and had a great experience. Research, research, research
  10. Went to CC for an iron fitting after a friend recommended them. Made an appointment before my season starts figuring I would have to play with my old sticks for maybe a round or two tops. My original appointment in March was canceled due to the fitter having a baby, next availability was a month later. Fitting went great, really enjoyed the experience and the choices. Had a little sticker shock when he showed me the invoice, but went with it since I tend to keep my irons for a long time. Was told that it would take 6 weeks to get them due to the pandemic, etc. I wasn't happy but figured it is what it is. On the 6 week mark, end of May, I call up and am routed to a corporate office voice mail. Left a message and receive an email the next day from the manager of the store I was fitted at that the grips aren't available until July. Decide on another set of grips and was told probably a week to a week and half more. Now I'm really not happy. Then at the 2 week mark, find out it's going to be another week. Mind you at this point, I'm over 25% into my season. Ends up taking 9 WEEKS to get my clubs. No apologies, no acknowledgement that it took an extra 3 weeks than promised. Next time I will go to the PGA Superstore near me that is always ranked as being one of the top fitters in the area by the magazines. Actually did that when I was fitted for a new 3W in early May.
  11. Only on par 3's. Only other time I don't use Driver is on tight holes or holes with trouble where I will probably play my 5W
  12. My new set I go with 4 wedges. 43, 48, 52 and 56 degrees. Use the 56 mostly for chip shots around the green, then the 52 when I need more run on a chip shot. Working out really well so far
  13. From my first set of irons through now my 4th set, I've never had the same brand throughout. Currently all of my woods are different brands from each other.
  14. We've been driving further away and paying more than usual to secure a 9:30 weekend tee time. Unfortunately the course is closing, even with a full tee sheet most weekends. This in turn is going to put a crunch on other local public courses. Thing is we really enjoy playing different courses throughout the year, but we're now thinking about getting a credit line membership at a local club in order to be able to play next year.
  15. A few near me didn't double but went up $20 or so. Add that up over a season and it gets up there. The problem is that they're still getting the $ because tee times are scarce.
