  1. Found this thread after just getting back from a trip to Ireland. Majority of caddies use the Motocaddy M5 when they double bag. I have a competitors remote power trolly for the past four years and came away from my trip fully impressed by the Motocaddy. If Motocaddy ever starts a trade in program I will definitely use it to purchase a M7. Remote is the way to go and I like that Motocaddy is water resistant.
  2. I have a Bat Caddy XR4 with remote and have had it for five years. I used to use the remote all the time but anytime it was wet or dew conditions the moisture would cause direction malfunctions. Lately it would just start going in uncontrollable circles. Very frustrating. After five years I’m ready to get rid of the Bat Caddy and get a Moto Caddy with remote. I wish I would have gone with Moto Caddy from the beginning. Anyway with or without remote you’ll never want to use a push cart again.
  3. Kingsley Golf Club, Kingsley, MI Arcadia Bluffs Shore Course, Arcadia, MI Pacific Dunes, Bandon, OR. Bandon Dunes, Bandon, OR. Belvedere Golf Club, Charlevoix, MI Palmetto Golf Club, Aiken, SC Kiva Dunes, Gulf Shores, AL. Belleair Country Club, Belleair, FL. TPC Stadium Course, Sawgrass, FL The Los Angeles Country Club, Los Angeles, CA HONORABLE MENTION: Caledonia Golf and Fish Club, Pawleys Island, SC This list could change as I’m headed in September to Ireland to play: Waterville, Tralee, Dooks, LaHinch, County Sligo, Narin & Portnoo and finishing with St Patricks Links. UPDATE as I got back from my trip to Ireland: Wonderful first trip to Ireland, if you haven’t been go! Don’t wait fifty years like I did. Anyway my top 10 course list has to be separated into US/North America and the Europe/Ireland because everyone one of the courses in Ireland exceeds any of the courses that I had listed. My Ireland ranking: Lahinch St. Patrick’s Links Waterville Dooks County Sligo Narin & Portnoo Tralee (down graded due to over booking tee times)
  4. Agree completely in your statement regarding reducing joint pain. I like to practice and made the switch to graphite in my irons, huge difference in any discomfort. However the mistake I made was going to an ultra light shaft (60 grams) from steel (115 grams) at the recommendation of a club fitter at a demo day. I did not lose distance nor did I gain distance but my control was all over the place. I would have 120 yards and knew I had no chance of hitting the green. I thought it was my swing going bad but after a year I switched out the shafts to 96 gram graphite shafts and my dispersion control was back.
  5. It’s been awhile since I’ve played PV, it’s a nice course with one screwy hole. I believe it’s number 7, a par 5 with a lake where you’d like to land your second shot. You can’t carry the lake for your second shot so the lay up is like an 7 or 8 iron then your third shot to the green is 200+.
  6. Hardest most difficult course I ever played was in Zionville Indiana called Wolf Run. It had a stretch of three holes that Nick Faldo was quoted as saying were the hardest three holes in a row he has played. Unfortunately the club closed in I believe 2017.
  7. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I was introduced to this great game by my dad when I was 11, so I have now been playing for 50 years. My handicap got down for one summer to a 3 because I was making every putt I looked at! It 5 to 7 is where I’ve always hovered. What do you love about this game? I enjoy being outdoors, the challenge of how the games changes with conditions. I’ve met many great and interesting people. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? I’ve followed the site off and on for a few years and like the reviews and discussions. Do you already know any other Spies? No I do not. Where are you from? What is your home course? I live in Bloomington Illinois and I am a member of Crestwicke Country Club. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? There are a lot of nice public and private courses in the area. The worse thing is the weather, windy all the time and then a short season due to winter. What do you do for a living? Nothing. How’d you pick your user name? Dodgerfan. I’m originally from a town 70 miles east of Los Angeles California. I grew up following the Dodgers and listening to Vin Scully. I am a big Dodger fan.
