Not a weather problem but a crowd problem for me.  I get it this is technically a holiday, and I should be glad that golf is popular so courses won't close, but c'mon its 43 degrees in northeast Ohio, in 2019 and prior you could just show up at any time you wanted, pretty much after mid October, and courses would be ghost towns.

I'm really glad but wow the courses were more crowded today than they were sometimes in the middle of summer at 1 PM.  All three courses were packed!

 

Based on the last 10 plus months of data, there were between 20 to 25 million more rounds played compared to 2020. Read this in an article this morning. The final numbers will come out in January sometime.

Doesn't anyone work anymore?

My muni was fairly deserted after 10am M-TH until leagues started around 3pm.  Now unless you make a tee time, it's hard to walk on before 2pm.

The article mentioned all the people with flex time and working from home was a big factor.

I'm using my phone less and less to post here but I also am not on my laptop much either, pretty much just either early morning (like right now) or late at night. It's disappointing because this has been an ongoing concern and it feels like not a thing is being done to address it.

I have officially given up on mobile version of MGS. I use my phone to access a lot of sites and NONE of them compare to the ads on MGS.

I have mentioned it to Adam last Thursday and based on his response it is a concern for him and something he is working to fix.

I hope so, it’s gotten much worse.

I downloaded a different ad blocker that did help but after a couple weeks Ads found their way through.

He asked me about the biggest complaint on the forums and I said that the Ads were the biggest issue.   I don't use the site on my phone so I avoid all the ads so I don't personally see the issue.

I gave up on the phone as well. Just plain torture. I close an ad and another pops in to take its place. I use an ad blocker on my tablet and laptop and I get zero ads.

I added a pop-up blocker and use a different browser on my phone just for this site. Works well and if I only went on my laptop I would never come on here.

I tried an ad blocker on my phone. It made it even slower than it already is. This is the slowest site I have ever encountered... on phone or PC. I visit here way less often these days because the snail pace this place operates at is infuriating.

I can't comment on the phone app as I have only used it infrequently and not since last summer.  My PC connection is faster than most of the user media sites I do use frequently (it's FB, YouTube, Google mail, and others that get the spinning wheel of hope doing its thing every time) and MGS for me 10 times faster.  Makes me wonder why the difference.  Using Brave.com for my browser for its security and tracking block.

What kind of phone are you using, Android or Apple? 

I'm only able to use my phone to get on here because my wife has a monopoly on the computer, so I installed AdBlock browser on my android. No ads and the site runs pretty good. I don't know about Apple and what they offer. The browser I'm using appears to be Chrome, with ad blocking magic.

I understand the frustration, I honestly believe that the ads popping up on here have caused interaction on here to slow down and I hate that.

I use an ad blocker on my PC and it is slow. Thought it was me since I am The King of Device Dummies. I have a brand new phone that T Mobile forced me to get that I can not work. The T Mobile people here are not much help and either are the people on tech support---- I would go down there and go to war with them today but it is very stormy and raining here and I am not going out. I am at the point as I was 2 weeks before Christmas of giving them back both the phones and going to burner phones. I do not think T-Mobile cares about some of us seniors are not as tech savvy nor do they seem to care.

Starting to stress the pending move a bit.

Being an active duty officer it’s unheard of to stay in one place for 6 years, so I have no complaints and knew eventually I’d have to move on, but taking down Christmas lights yesterday it dawned on me it was the last time I was going to do it at our Nebraska house, and it’s becoming hard not to think that way about a lot of things.  My kids are 8, 6, and 4…this place is all they’ve really known, and I’m really hoping I can get them to embrace the adventure of a move rather than lament leaving.

Still no idea where to.  Hoping for Langley AFB in Virginia or San Antonio, although I’m hearing back to the Pentagon is a possibility.  (Please Lord, no!)  In 21 years, I’ve never correctly predicted where I’m going next, so why I bother to guess is beyond me.

Anyway, sorry to vent that all here, just on my mind more and more as the summer approaches.  Won’t know anything to a certainty until March….

Thank you for your service-----  I guess I was lucky the 3 1/2 years I was in the Navy I was young and single--- I had 3 different ratings so I got moved around some--- Never on base housing though or shore duty as we called it--- But yeah I can see the stress and strain on a career Officer with a family---- But thanks again for your continued service and thank your family too. We are lucky to have folks like you still serving

Naah Man you need to cover your bases the redneck way after all you are in Tennessee---- I still have 2 Old School percolators that work. I can put on the wood stove the charcoal grill or the gas grille or the shrimp cooker/ Turkey fryer. Or I can simply dig a small hole and use charcoal Dutch Oven style. Hey when you become a Redneck Engineer the opitions are endless. And if I really want to stay modern in that event I can fire up one of my generators

If I would have known where my percolator was, you can bet I would have fired up the grill and and used that bad boy. Mama ain't too friendly when she ain't got her coffee and I was scared for my life.
