  1. Love all these ideas. Definitely will have ongoing games and side bets throughout the round (closest to the hole, 5 bucks if you get up and down from that, etc.)
  2. THAT IS AN AWESOME IDEA haha. Love it.
  3. Going to vegas for a golf trip with the guys. Details: 4 players (HCPs 4, 8, 10, 15) Rounds: Day 1: 36 holes at Wolf Creek round 1 = cart vs cart best ball match play round 2 = cart vs cart best ball scramble stroke play (same teams as round 1) Day 2: 18 holes at Reflection Bay round = 6, 6, and 6 (breaking the round into 3, 6 hole games with rotating teams) Day 3: 36 holes at Paiute (Wolf and Sun) round 1 = 18 hole skins round 2 = cart vs car best ball match play (same teams as day 1 round 1) Trying hard to figure out some fun awards we can vote on and pass around at dinner on Day 3 some that come to mind are: Worst Shot of the weekend Most lost balls Overall MVP and now i'm stuck hoping the GolfSpy community to chip in here!
  4. Awesome. They look pretty sweet and obviously high quality. My Titleist 2019 Hybrid Stand Bag hasn't held up the way I hoped it would.
  5. Anyone use a Vessel golf bag? I never heard of them until last week. They look pretty killer. https://vesselbags.com/pages/golf
  6. Apologies! (new guy problems) - appreciate the correction Updated now!
  7. Any interest out there??? Asking $250 Specs: like new PXG 4 Hybrid - (probably has less than 50 swings - just didn't workout for me) Fujikura Pro 2.0 8-S Hybrid shaft Lamkin PXG Grip PXG Leather Cover
  8. Sweet thread!!!!! Houston: Gleannloch Pines (Gleann, Loch, Pines) - all three 9 hole courses are well maintained, challenging, and fun. Raveneaux Country Club - grew up playing here while it was private but a developer just purchased it and its public for the next couple of years now Black Horse (South Course) - very challenging course in Cypress, TX Carlton Woods ( Woodlands) - if you can get out there do it. Champions (Cypress Course) - if you can get out there do it. High Meadow (Magnolia) - awesome open course. BUCKET LIST COURSES NOT YET PLAYED IN HOUSTON, TX: Bluejack Golf Club of Houston Austin: Barton Creek Fazio Canyons - Favorite track in all Austin that's accessible. Avery Ranch ( Cedar Park, TX) - challenging, beautiful course. Greens are always consistent and in good shape. WARNING: weekend play is HORRENDOUSLY SLOOOOOW. If you can play during the week, do that. Star Ranch (Hutto, TX) - fun, open, easy to score course. Pace of play never really an issue. Also, a very walkable course. Great practice facilities (2 big putting greens, 2 big pitching/chipping greens, separate bunker pitching green, and large grass range) - highly recommend for a large group, relaxing round and/or confidence building, practice round. Lost Creek CC (Westlake) - fun, challenging private course (club corp club) Twin Creeks (Cedar Park/Volente Beach) - very challenging, Fred Couples designed private course. Shoot well here and you'll crush a high percentage of courses you step onto. HEADS UP: Pace of play at any of the Magnolia Group courses (Avery Ranch, Teravista, Falconhead) - horrible pace of play and over crowded during peak seasons. Courses are in good shape but the overall experience in spring and summer is horrible. Not walkable either. Public tracks: Crystal Falls and Lago Vista are hit or miss with greens quality. Lots of blind tee shots. Greens are inconsistent hole-to-hole and do not hold approach shots consistently. BUCKET LIST COURSES NOT YET PLAYED IN AUSTIN, TX: Spanish Oaks (Bee Cave) Austin Country Club (Westlake) UT Golf Club (Steiner Ranch) Austin Golf Club (Spicewood) Cimarron Hills (Georgetown)
  9. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I grew up playing as a junior in tournaments. Decided to pursue basketball through college and just jumped back into the obsession. Average Score = 84; 8 HCP What do you love about golf? you vs. the course/nature; continuous improvement.
