  1. 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.
  2. Anyone use a Vessel golf bag? I never heard of them until last week. They look pretty killer. https://vesselbags.com/pages/golf

  6. 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)
