I'm in the Metro-Detroit area. I just started seriously playing in October of last year and became absolutely addicted to the game. My WHS handicap is currently 20.2.
As for what I love about golf, what really grabbed me was hitting a 157 yard shot on a Par 3 about 3' from the cup at our company golf outing last September. Everything in that brief second of contact captured me. So a well struck shot, yeah, that's what I love most about the game. That feeling you get when you hit a great shot.
I found MGS while looking for club reviews, probably the same as most.. The track I play most at is Rackham Golf Course. It's located right next The Detroit Zoo. It's a Donald Ross designed course. While renovations, and mis-management by the city has it lacking from it's former glory. The last year or so it's improved, and the greens, yeah, they're Ross all the way.
I'm a purchasing director for a HVAC distributor here in the Detroit are. My user name is from an old Ice Cube skit from AmeriKKKas Most Wanted. Hit Em Straight, All.
