  1. With COVID-19 and the fact that I work in the Oil&Gas industry, I've got a severely limited budget with no room for GOLF. So I've been looking for ways to play with cut costs. One way of course, is to walk the course. However, since I am also limited, physically, with foot and leg issues, I'm considering adapting my fat tire bike to hold my clubs and ride the course. Has anyone tried to do this? I'm wondering how agreeable most courses would be to allowing me to ride my bike. I've come across a bike trailer that would be perfect as a bag cart: https://www.burley.com/product/travoy/ I guess my ideal solution would be: https://www.finnscooters.com, but that's definitely out of the budget. I would appreciate any other Ideas!
  2. Hey jnharvey44, I don't know why I've got such a apprehension about playing solo. I guess, because I play so sparingly most of my rounds end up just being a practice round, and if I were to be grouped with some guys that play fast and accurate, I would end up upsetting some of them. Like you, I'm not that much of a people person, but I'm definitely a golf people person!
  3. Wow free membership to a private club... oh boy, that's the life!
  4. Hey Tom, I’m totally with you on the Hole-in-one issue when playing alone! However since I tend to play at muni’s and don’t have a home course, most courses would rather group singles or doubles together with other singles or doubles to make up as many 4somes as possible...

  7. I live in the Avery Ranch/Lakeline area and I'm definitely always looking for playing partners. But I must warn you, I'm a bit rusty! My favorite course in the area has always been Highland Lakes over in Lago Vista (The Hidden Gem, as I like to call it) but due to its "Hidden"-ness the course has always struggled to stay open. Now with the Quarantine it looks like it has closed for sure AGAIN. Such a great course, such a shame! I'm always ready to play, just lemme know where and when!
  8. There pretty much isn't a day where I wish I was on a course somewhere, ANYWHERE, playing golf with my buddies. However, I've always been the type of person who prefers to play with friends rather than going out on my own. Unfortunately, all my golf buddies live in other towns and other states. So as a result, I don't get to play as often as I'd like because I simply can not find any playing partners. Another result of not playing too often is that my game suffers from the lack of practice. I think that's one of the reasons why I like to only play with friends; I don't feel any pressure to play at the same pace as the rest of the foursome. I can be myself and actually enjoy the game. There was a time when I had a buddy of mine encourage me to join his golf league. Since my skill level wasn't as great as his, I was put in a different pool of players and never got to play with my buddy. But since I was grouped together with players of my own skill level, I actually enjoyed playing along with strangers. In fact the more I played the better I got, and actually earned a spot to play for the championship of my bracket. But that was some time ago and back when I lived in a different place. So now where I live, (closer to family) I have one brother-in-law that plays, but we can never schedule a time to play. There are a number of courses to play in my area. I played at my favorite course, last October, and probably had the best round ever. Some four or five months later, I played at probably my least favorite course and had the worst round ever. I know that I just need to simply play much more. And with this COVID-19, being cooped up in the house for so long while witnessing the awesome weather that Spring is rolling in; I'm just about desperate enough to go out solo. However, I'm not too confident and certain what type of round I'm going to have. I just want to play! So the question is: Am I alone in finding it difficult to go out to play? Is it just a self-made phobia or do others feel the same? I guess one could say it's all about pace of play. Since most of us are recreational golfers, and don't play golf for a living, the only golfers that I've met that had no problem going out to any course on their own are those golfers with the lowest of handicaps.
