Welcome buddy hope you enjoy the forums! Have never play Quaboag how is it?

It's a nice change from some of the other courses around. Much older lots of uneven lies and elevation changes. The greens are usually in good shape along with the fairways. They do have some thin/ bare spots mostly where the slope is pretty steep. It's close to my house and never crowded so it's easy to get a quick 9 in.

Gonna have to go with Acushnet River Valley. Gives you the best of both worlds - typical gorgeous tree-lined fairways on the front nine, then links style on the back nine. 

How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I've been playing about 15 years. My index is 20, and hasn't budged.  What do you love about golf?  I love be

Hey Golf Spies, Bryan from outside of Boston here.  I grew up about 45 minutes west of Boston, went to school just outside the city, lived there for a few years, and now am back about 45 minutes

Posted Images

  1. How long have you been playing golf? 16 years  What’s your handicap or normal score? 80's

  2. What do you love about golf? It's a love hate relationship. I love being outside and the hope of birdies and hitting those shots that you can look back on and be like oh yeah that's why I love golf.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I know a couple spies. I've been on spy for 2 years but I'm going to start being involved now that I have a little more time.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm from western MA but I live in Attleboro now. I guess my home course is Chemawa golf course since I'm in a league there, but I like to travel around and play new courses.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Golf in MA is great for a limited amount of time. Spring is super windy, cold and rainy. Summer is great, humid but great. Fall is nice but then you have to try and find you ball under millions of leaves.

  6. What do you do for a living? Air Force reservist and civilian I do pipe fitting for fire suppression systems.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Just an abbreviation of my full name

Overall I really enjoy it, been a member there for 7 years.  They have a very active member base and I like the layout a lot.  I’m a shorter hitter so I find it pretty challenging but for the longer hitters it will probably play on the easier side.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
    I’ve been playing golf for 30 years, my GHIN is 4.7, normal score 74-80.

  2. What do you love about golf?                   I’ve been addicted to golf since 8th grade, love that you can compete with others or just yourself and the course.  Really fell in love with competing while playing D1 golf.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?                    Was brought back onto MyGolfSpy to look at new clubs, what brought me to it last time as well.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?                                             Grew up just north of NYC, my teaching pro was Lighthouse Harry Cooper.  Now I live in Newburyport, Ma.  My home course is a private top 100 which I love playing.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?                         Love spring and fall golf with the cooler temps, hate the snow in the winter.

  6. What do you do for a living?                     Partially retired at 40, now Invest

  7. How’d you pick your user name?             My name

I currently have the TS2. I enjoy it great sound and feel, might swap shafts out at some point soon. 
not sure if you read the review from MGS but they did a pretty comprehensive review of the 2020 drivers. 
If I didn’t revamp last year with the TS2 I definitely would have been looking at the SIM or the speed zone.

And if you can hold off a week or two they will be releasing the driver report by swing speed category as well. You can always go look at the 2019 reports too for a starting point. What’s your driver swing speed?

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? 15 years on and off. Don’t keep an index anymore, although I’m a prob slightly better than a bogey golfer, with the ability to shoot much lower or higher depending on the course/tees.
  2. What do you love about golf? Walking, exercise, twilight solo rounds, the 1st tee time and walking 18 before most people get up, the sound/feel of a flushed iron shot. I’m an equipment junkie and like trying things, do a lot of adjustments myself. I experiment more than I practice and don’t really care about score. 
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? I’ve been visiting MGS for years, decided to join because I’m bored on a Saturday morning. Do you already know any other Spies? Nope.
  4. Where are you from? West Hartford, CT What is your home course? Gillette Ridge technically, and I play Tunxis Plantation and Wintonbury Hills often
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Worsts: Humidity in July/August, Winter golf is rarely an option, grass tees at driving ranges are rare. Best: so many courses within a 20 min drive. Insane having moved from OR a few years back.
  6. What do you do for a living? The Cyber
  7. How’d you pick your user name? Pace of play. I don’t like people obsessing over short puts. ~Inside the grip on your putter, pick it up and move to the next hole.

Welcome I like your “what I love about golf”. One thing about this year that silver lining on Covid is enjoying the walk more since it’s more “acceptable”. Enjoy the Saturday morning reads!
