  1. Oh boy, this topic always heats up the forums. I always finds it interesting how this topics and a few others always puts a divide between us all (shorts anyone?). I think we can all agree that we all have a passion for golf, that is why we gather here. I think we can all agree that want golf to continue to to grow. One way to do this is to loosen the stiff traditional rules here. As a golf coach I always preach to the kids how much similarities there with golf and life. There seems to be no compromises any more. You are either in one party or the other. Why can't you have music on the course? If the group is okay with it and makes the experience more fun than do it! But be respectful of your environment, the next three fairways don't need to join your conversation or party. we should be trying to reach to a new generation of golfer, not shut them out. That will kill this industry faster than than blue drivers and orange pants. During a casual round at my course I be perfectly accepted when I am golfing in my cargo shorts, basketball jersey, flip flops, and respectfully listening to Skynyrd on the bluetooth speaker at 20% volume. But if you ask me to join your three some I am more than willing to put on my polo, khakis, golf shoes and leave the blue tooth in the locker room. I just want a good round with good company.

  3. Thanks guys for your input. I like the two day stroke play tournament idea. I'm thinking using the first day for flighting and then the second day for placing. Having a senior, championship, and a few other flights would work for our club. Then what we will do is use the overall finishing places will be used to determine who will make it to our Ryder Cup Team, We play our neighboring course and it can be a lot of fun. My biggest goal is participation and fun. Thanks again everyone.
  4. Hello everyone! Our course is talking about switching up our club championship. I am looking to you guys for advice and insight on how you guys play your club championship. Our current format is that we play 15 weeks of league and based on our handicaps, everyone is separated into flights, championship, 1st, 2nd, 3rd....so on. Once the brackets are set, The first through eleventh flights will use the week's individual league score to determine who moves on in the bracket. Finally, the flight champion is decided by a nine hole match play match. The champions bracket is all played out with each player playing match play matches to get to the championship. The final two players will play a 18 hole match play match to determine the winner. One group wants to keep it the same and another group wants a stroke play tournament. I like the feel of a one/two day stroke play tournament where everyone can watch the tournament unfold. That's my thought and I am just one guy in the clubhouse. I would like some ideas to bring to the men's committee on different formats that might work for our course. Thanks in advance! So, How do you guys determine your club champion? Do you like it? What would you suggest? Match Play? Stroke Play?
  5. I am looking at my which is covered by a massive 6 foot drift. I will be shocked if the mountains will be gone by mid April. I am lucky being the golf coach here, so I can at least get the clubs out in March and swing them in the gym. I looking for places "down south" to take a pre-season golf trip. Any suggestions? I will be looking any where between Omaha and Kansas City, further if needed.
  6. I have been hitting the Exotics CG6. I love the distances and ease of use. I believe it was this sight and a fellow reader were I heard about this club.
  7. Merry Christmas from the always lovely Iowa coast. Ha, just kidding. Only 3 inches of snow dropping on the same day I got a new driver. Going to be a long winter! Thank goodness for Golf Addiction.
  8. This is the year that I will be getting a new "New" driver and a set of new "new" irons. Up until now I have just bought used drivers that are 2-3 years old. It's the same for my irons. I have had two sets and both are hand me downs. I am currently a free agent. I'm willing to get anything that feels nice and is consistent. However, the worst part of getting clubs for Christmas is that I have to wait 4 months to play. I am excited for the new set up, whatever it may be!
  9. I did not. I was on such a cloud of hiting the M1, that I didn't even think about it until I was almost home. I even had my bag in the trunk!!!
  10. Last week I got the chance to hit the M1. I will say taht i was very impressed with this club. It took me a couple swings to get used to it, but I loved the way it felt and the way it looked next to the ball. I hit the 430 with a KuroKage 60 shaft at 9.5 degrees. Each of the weights were at the nuetural settings. I was hitting the ball at 16 degrees and the average spin at 2100 few got as low as 1750. I can't tell you what normal is, but what I can tell you is that the distance and ball flight wasn't. It was better. I was hitting it around 287 and 302 with a baby draw. I know that is just what the monitor was saying but I liked the numbers. The other thing that I liked was the size of the head next to the ball. The white and black color made it appear to be smaller. I can't stand the sizes of some of the divers that are out on the market now. I know that the 430 is smaller in the first place but even the 460 looks smaller than other clubs as well. Overall, if I had my checkbook, I would have bought it right then and there. Loved the new club. It will be in the bag by next spring.
  11. Levi Judge, Iowa 10 Hdcp 90-120 I typically look online for any deals. Once I find a ball I do a ton of research on various websites. I put a ton of value on the information from this site so thank you everyone. Then i either go to the store or purchase it online.
  12. Here in NW Iowa we have a lot of "nice" muni courses around me. After reading all of your posts I feel fortunate to have the membership that I have. It is $475 for the year, that includes cart shed rental for my cart. I can hit all the balls i want on our tiny range. I can also go to 4 other 9 hole courses. These aren't high end courses by any means but they aren't the worse. I do have 3 higher end courses near by that are in the $50 range.

  14. I love the game because of how simple and how complex it can be. It can be what you want it to be. I also love how realible it is to real life. If you make a mistake you have to live with it. I love that I will never master it, that means that can always play it and have something to work on. It's a sport, it's a game. It is calm escape, it is a stressful waste of an afternoon. Golf is pure, you can't hide anything. You lay everything on the line.
