Looks like a nice course.  

I hadn’t heard of it until Wednesday. Turns out it’s known as the “Most exclusive course” and “hardest course to get on” in Pennsylvania according to golf publications like golf magazine

did you bring the Mizzy’s?
 

The Kingsley Club and Crystal Downs in Michigan is probably as difficult to get on.  
You have to be “The Dude”, or Jimmy Walker or know the secret handshake?

did it seem underutilized?  I don’t get that part of golf.  Such beautiful courses just sit there… seemS wasteful.  I am Looking to eventually retire in Asheville, NC… but the course that I’m interested in is invite only and costs a crap ton of dough.

Yeah. Used my entire fitted set. Mizzys were just so on point. Felt good making confident iron swings again. 
 

There were quite a few groups going out before and after us. Not bad considering it was 90 and humid as hell today.

stuffed to 5 ft and made the putt! The new Maxfli Tour is a superb ball.

The nicer courses are nice because they limit play by either charging an arm and a leg, limit membership, or have very spaced out tee times. My course is private and in fantastic condition because we only have around 250 members and a portion of those are only social dining members. I have 3 other public courses close by and the conditions are not even close to my club. I only go there when there is an outing at mine. 

The public courses get more play and the golfers don't do their part. They don't rake traps, fill faiway divots, repair ball marks on the green. On the private ones the members do their part. And take pride in their course. 

I can honestly say my handicap is as low as it is because I have such good conditions to play on.

Hit a decent driver shot that left me 100 yards in from the middle of the fairway. Put my GW to 4’ and sank the birdie putt. 
 

It’s amazing what can happen when you hit driver well...

For a buddy's bachelor party we hit up a local course for a little scramble. Hit this stock PW, little fade that rode the wind and danced right near the hole. Ball mark is the fresh one about 2' short and left of the hole, ball ended up about dead straight below the hole about 2'. Can't say I didn't have some pretty crazy thoughts when it was in the air!

I mentioned them both in the How'd you play thread and yet, here they are again.

#5 par 4 Cart path assisted 294 drive, left me 60 something to the middle.

#9 par 4 235 into a 15 mph head wind for one of the best drives I've hit on that hole. If the wind wasn't blowing I'd love to see where it ended up.

After spending some focused time this week on my home range (mat and net) with my irons, took my honed swing to the course yesterday.  Proceeded to stuff a 7 iron from 155 to 12 feet on #1 - tracked the whole way, ball mark was just a few feet behind the ball.  Rolled the putt in for birdie.  Nice to have some work pay off for once.  Gives me hope.  ~Tim.

I went from making a comment on Friday saying, “I honestly don’t remember the last time I got an Eagle” to getting one on back-to-back days. 
 

Saturday’s started with a pitiful pop up drive into a headwind that knocked it down into the fairway bunker. What followed was a “why the heck not” 5w to the green and draining a slow, downhill, trickling 43’ putt. Boom! 🦅 

 

Sunday’s started with a smooth, high fairway finder and followed with the purest 4i I’ve ever hit. Hit & sat 10” from albatross glory; most upset I’ve ever been with a tap-in 🦅! 😅

18th on Saturday final hole 140 yds par 3 wind behind, PW, hit the pin on the full bounced 3 feet from the hole but ran thru the back. Holed the 30 footer back for birdie. 

Still waiting for my 1st hole in one.

Shot of the day today came on a par 5. OB is left and you can miss right to the adjacent hole and still have a good look at a layup to a short wedge into the green. My driver leaked right into the other fairway, so I did the natural thing...found a gap in the trees and gave the green a go!

It was a super tight window, wind helping and off my left shoulder with a tall tree I probably couldn't fly with my natural ball flight with my 5 iron. I put it 1 ball forward in my stance and gave it an absolute rip, and watched it skirt just between the trees. It was fading slightly away from the flag towards the right side of the green, and I was just hoping I would catch the greenside bunker.

Got up to the green and it had carried the bunker and was sitting just in the fringe on the green!

Here's a look from the middle of the green, back towards where I hit the ball from. Approximate ball flight shown:IMG_20210812_165850706.jpg.82a330266c33fcdee35537d63d8b39cd.jpg
