I think this could lead to regional MGS get-togethers!  Happy to play along.

  1. Since about age 12 when my mom bought me a set of Tommy Armour Silver Scott's at a local Goodwill to keep me occupied and out of trouble.  I played in and around the farms surrounding my house every day.  I didn't play my first actual golf course until I was 19.  I haven't kept a score or handicap in a number of years.  That's just not what I want from the game these days.
  2. Golf is cathartic!  It's my therapy from a career that has become nothing short of a bureaucratic nightmare.  I deal with local and state government officials that often have no clue what is required by local, state and federal law in terms of design standards.  They come to us wanting to build a new school or provide utilities for a proposed new big box store.  When we give them a breakdown of what would be required by law, they lose their minds.  Imagine adding a new school or big box retailer to your neighborhood water and sewer system!  The result would likely be catastrophic!  But most people don't think about those things when new construction is proposed.  They see the revenue a new big box retailer would bring to the area but rarely have any idea of the infrastructure needed to support it.
  3. Content on other message boards is driven by sponsorship dollars.  They lack integrity as a result! 
  4. Galax, Virginia - Blue Ridge Country Club
  5. The best would be abundance of quality golf at affordable rates.  The worst would be many of those same facilities wanting to be "exclusive" or offer more amenities than they should.  It has led to the demise of some really great golf courses. 
  6. Civil Engineering Design
  7. Childhood nickname
