  1. I play very early, and there is usually a heavy dew. I almost always walk, but when I do ride, I want the stability and safety of 4 wheels. These look like fun, but not practical for me. Besides, I prefer to walk.

  3. I hit them, and liked them, but chose Mizuno Hot Metals because of more shaft options without upcharge.
  4. Arcadian Shores is real close, too. It's a bit of an older course, not too long, but looks fairly tight. We usually go to the Litchfield area, which is on the south end of the Grand Strand, so it's been quite awhile since I've been in the area you are staying.
  5. Good courses at Barefoot landing. That's pretty close to where you are staying. Barefootgolf.com Barefoot Landing is kind of a touristy area, but there are some decent places to eat.
  6. A lot of folks consider Myrtle Beach the area between the NC border and Georgetown, SC. You might want to narrow your search a bit.
  7. Spoke to a friend that is a Titleist fitter, and either June or July he will be going to golf courses to do fittings for Titleist staffers with new irons. Didn't tell me anything about them, just that they were coming.
  8. The course in High Point is part of High Point Country Club. It is an old Ross course, and is very short, and very hilly. HPCC has two courses, but not at the same site. The Ross course is in town at their Emerywood location. The other course is a bit out of town at Willow Creek. They used to host an LPGA tournament there, and it's a good course. The muny in Asheboro is a Ross course, but I think that is a 9 hole course. If you are in the Triangle, Raleigh Country Club is the last course Ross built. He died before it was done, and Ellis Maples finished it. It is now owned by McConnell Golf, and they did a great job of fixing it up. It is a very fun course, and if you can get on, you should.
  9. I used to drive past that course before they built the bypass around Danville. That is quite a route from Richmond-Thomasville. I usually try to avoid the interstate, too. If you ever come down 85, Hillandale in Durham is kind of a fun course, and it has a nice pro shop, and the course at Duke is only about 10 minutes off the highway. I almost forgot, but there is another Ross course on Rt58 between South Hill and Danville. I can't remember the name, and I believe it may be closer to South Hill than Danville. We saw it when we were coming back from the Tidewater area. I mentioned it to the Pro at my course, and he said it was a good course.
  10. I have a Kangaroo, and two bags, a SM Sync, and a SM 4.5 that I use. I really prefer the 4 way top on the 4.5, but because of the thing that deploys the legs, it doesn't sit well in the bottom bracket. What kind of bags do you guys use, and do you have any recommendations for a 4 way bag that might work better than the 4.5? Thanks.
  11. The course where I belong gave a substantial discount to members, so I bought all my equipment there. They recently are being run by a management company, and the discount was discontinued for all but the highest membership category, and that has been greatly reduced. We used to get stuff at cost plus 10% plus shipping. I couldn't afford to buy elsewhere.
  12. PB crackers and water.
  13. I've had Sun Mountain 3.5 and 4.5, and never had any problems.

    Happy thread

    A guy that has been playing with us for a couple years broke 80 for the first time today. He was happy, and we were happy for him.
  15. The Masters, followed by Hilton Head, are my two favorite consecutive weeks of the golf season.
