I've been following @MyGolfSpy for a while now and am very impressed with the content so I've dove in at the deep end and joined the forums here. Of course hoping against hope that one day I might be chosen as a reviewer too!
If you don't know already, I'm an active youtuber. I post videos of my practice & golfing trips. If your interested, follow the link or just pop Paddy Golf into youtube and you should find me no problem.
Ok so in a couple of weeks I'll be heading to the Dallas/Fort Worth area for a friend's bachelor party. All of us play golf so I know at least 1 round of golf will be played on the trip.
Also, me and another buddy who are more avid golfers plan on playing 1 other round of golf.
â€‹As far as price, I need two different things. 1 in the sub $120 range and another in the sub $60 range.
I'd love something in good shape. Doesn't have to be crazy hard or easy. Although I'd prefer hard to easy. Just want to play a couple fun, nice golf courses.

My name is Guy, Director of Golfbreaks.com. We've just joined MyGolfSpy as a sponsor and I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and the company to you.
We're a specialist golf tour operator based out of Windsor, UK with offices in Charleston, SC and Copenhagen, Denmark. We have been providing golf vacations, to mainly European golfers, since 1998. Currently we sell over 2000 golf destinations worldwide and this year will send over 220,000 golfers on golf trips.
In 2013 my co-Director Daniel Grave set up our USA office to expand our American operations and bring our bespoke service (and great value vacations!) to golfers Stateside.
Our aim is to enthuse about the wonders of UK and Irish golf and encourage as many of you as possible to take a trip this side of the pond and play some iconic courses. The golf truly is great, and it is not as expensive as you might think; there are hundreds of hidden gems amongst the better known signature courses!
You can find more details about our UK and Irish tours service on our USA website at: http://usa.golfbreaks.com
If anyone needs any advice on golf or places to stay in Scotland, Ireland, England or Wales or is planning a golf trip to Europe then we would love to hear about it.
Everytime I introduce someone to the Mrs. and mines favorite little course, Cove Links, the reaction is always the same: Why don't we have more of these?
Why don't we? I know, I know you're just like a couple of my buddies "But I don't get to hit driver every hole?" So?
Cove Links is 9 holes, it's $15 for 9 and less then $30 if you play 18. It has 7 par 3's and 2 short par 4's. The par 3's are all full length, from the tips pushing 2 bills at times, fully bunkered and great undulating greens. The par 4's 280 and 330 are no slouch either.
My point? Golf needs more accesible courses, more courses where it's not as tedious a task to get around and most of all courses that are just down right fun to play. On a Saturday morning Nidine and I can wake up at 7:45, be there by 8:15 (10 minute drive) with coffee and have played 9 by 10 am. We've enjoyed the golf experience, made some memeroies and most of all have the rest of Saturday available to us.
Oh and let's not forget that was $15. So tomorrow we'll probably wake up and do it all again.
Now I'm not saying forget the big courses, the more expenseive, because lord knows I wanna play em too. I just think we need more of these style course to balance out the cost and ability to play more often.
I'm just rambling some thoughts, but would love to hear yours.
