New Guy from Fla and PA


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Hi All. Just came across this awesome  site and thought I'd give it a shot. First time doing this. My name is Mike Takacs and I'm a snowbird. Live on PA 6 months and here at Heron Creek CC in North Port Fla for 6 months. I was bored in retirement and thought I'd start a website for something to do. What a dummy, I'm not bored anymore- :) Been traveling to play golf over 35 years and looking to "hook up" with like minded people. Like many old farts, I;m a slow learner but I am looking forward to learning how to navigate around this site. Thanks for listening...LATER...Mike T

Welcome to My Golf Spy Mikey.....I run a weekly (Sat) game in New Tampa @ Pebble Creek.  Currently, we have one player that drives up from Northport every Saturday to play with us.  It's a bit of a drive, but he doesn't seem to mind.  We average 45 players/week playing a points game. You are welcome to join us.

Thanks for the welcome all. Nice to be here. Might take you up on that invite to Tampa but now I am enjoying our 27 brand new holes here at Heron Creek. We just opened for play last week with 27 brand new tees, fairways, greens and roughs and it is a JOY to play. They did it right by bringing it back to the original Arthur Hills design which changed a bit over 15 years. I'll be here until May so we'll have to get together sometime. In May its back to Nazareth, Pa which is 60 miles North of Philly. Hope I killed two birds with one stone there by answering like that. Anyway, its nice to be here....LATER...MikeyT

Welcome Mikey - I'm over in St Pete so we will have to get you up our way - I'd love to suggest a home, home and home deal over the winter where we meet at Foz's course, my course and your course.  Perhaps we could get a 4th Floridian in the mix and find 4 excuses to play.  Jaxbeach comes to mind if he's game - he makes it down your way on occasion to visit family anyway.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Definitely! I get down to Venice every couple of months. Plus a trip to Jax and TPC Sawgrass/World Golf Village/Amelia Island should of course be on your travel agenda!
