I have been playing golf for 45 years, I became very active in my early 30's and have played regularly since.
I love the game on many levels. As a player I love the fact that you can never master this game. You always have room to improve and age only increases the opportunity for adjusting expectations and improving on a relative scale
I believe golf exposes who a person is. You can not "hide". You can learn more about a person in one round of golf than you might learn in years of casual contact. The "cheater" is exposed, as is the "whiner or excuse maker" as is the "great guy" the person with integrity, the person you can trust with your wife and your wallet while you are away for a month. Many of my lifelong friendships originated on a golf course.
I have been following My Golf Spy for years. I think you are truly providing a service to the consumer cutting past the hype and exposing the realities beyond the marketing. I read the postings constantly, listen to the podcasts, read the annual reviews etc. I think this is a great source of high level golf related informaiton
I am brought to My Golf Spy seeking information, true reviews, and connection to other informed golf enthusiasts
I am from Colonie NY, I am a member at Colonie Country Club and have played most courses in my region over the past 40 years.
The best thing about my region is the access to a wide variety of courses, designed by some of the legends such as Ross, Mac Kensie, Tillinghhast, MacDonald, Raynor, Emmet etc etc. This area has a rich history and the courses reflect this history. Courses such as The Sagamore, Glens Falls Coutry Club, Taconic, Dorset Field Club, Equinox, Ekwanoc, Wolfreds Roost, Troy CC, Mohawk, Edison, and recent additions such as Colonie CC, Saratoga National, Links at Unionvale, Okemo, and so many others feature works by some of the best golf architects past and present. This is a great region to play golf.
The downside without question is the short season
I am a semi retired consultant
My user name lacks originality as it is basically my initials. My lifelong nickname is Smitty
