  1. I am going next month ; staying at the resort at Barnbougle , playing both courses. Before that playing New South Wales in Sydney area. I will be interested in your notes about Barnbougle. Have fun
  2. There is only one Bandon; with 5 great courses it is hard to beat ! I love Streamsong too for a shorter golf trip. Food is comparable at both. Lodging is equal at both. Service is equal at both. If you go to either in the off seasons they are both good values. Peak season at either , you will pay dearly. The walks are a little easier at Streamsong. More memorable holes at Bandon because of the ocean views and cliff holes. Both resorts are in the middle of nowhere. There is a casino about 30 minutes from Bandon that you can go to via their shuttle. I have been to Bandon 8 times and Streamsong only once so I need to go back to Streamsong and play the Black course.
  3. I bought a G-Fore bag which was made by Vessel. It is super cool ! Make sure you use a scotch guard on the leather so it holds up better. Also had my ball pocket ( which zips off ) engraved with my name and a red skull . Expensive but unique !
  4. Do not put the 62 degree in your bag if you are a 15 handicap !!!!!!!!!!
  5. Own several pair of white pants and white shorts, wear them all the time in Arizona where I live . Also , you will see a lot of white in AZ during the summer months.
  6. I got fitted for an Evnroll putter about a year ago and I love it. My Spider putter would turn in when I was set up to the ball and I hated manipulating it to make it square. The Evnroll is solid, sets up square, and it puts a great roll on the ball. I will say the ball comes off faster which I like because you don't have to stroke the ball hard. Highly recommend . Also love the grip it comes with .
  7. We just got back from Kauai a couple of weeks ago. My ranking would be Princeville ( it was too far to drive so I did not play this time but I have played it 3 times), Poipu Bay , and then Ocean Course. The Ocean Course has gone down hill in my estimation, it needs some work to get back to being worth the money. I used my Troon Card with points and cash and only paid $100 to play the Ocean Course. Poipu Bay is a great course with great views.
  8. Cobra Driver Ping Hybrids Srixon Irons Volkey Wedges Evenroll Putter
  9. Just got back from 5 days at Sand Valley , played both courses twice and the sandbox twice. First class operation, just like Bandon without the ocean. Take caddies , they will make your walk enjoyable and they will help out tremendously with putting and lines . Ask for Don , he is the best caddy there, he actually played professional golf ( super nice guy ). Make sure you check out the food truck for some awesome food ! The accommodations are great !
  10. I have 5 pairs of G-Fore shoes, you need to make sure you try them on as some of their shoes run small , like the skull shoes.
  11. Played with a guy who had them and they are really good looking. I hit the 6 iron and it felt great. Good turf interaction.
  12. I live in AZ so I wear them every time I play. The best sleeves for me are Foot Joy, they keep their shape and come in black, grey , and white. Nike do not hold up , I will not buy them anymore.
  13. I have never been happy with Nike golf shoes to the point where I do not buy them anymore. G-Fore, Foot-Joy, Adidas, and Puma make better shoes .
  14. You won't go wrong playing Ross Bridge twice as it is a. big golf course that the second time around will be more enjoyable because you will know the angles better and where the misses are . Yes it is worth driving the hour to Farm Links.
  15. I live in Scottsdale , AZ and I wear UV sleeves every time I am playing. The best sleeves are made by Foot Joy because they don't slip. I own some Nike sleeves but they become loose after washing so I do not recommend them. Foot Joy makes them in white, grey, and black. Don't be afraid to wear the black in summer .
