 Welcome Mey and Morgan, not surprised you found the site by looking for reviews on clubs, between  the Most Wanted Testing and our Forum Member testing which will kick off this spring, we have the most comprehensive reviews of any site...I may be biased, but I've been on all of them, and it's the truth. 

Hope you guys can get out and play with some of the other great members in your area, Morgan, we have several in the SEPA/Northern MD/DE areas, we are going to put together at lesat a couple outings this year.   Keep an eye out for them.

Hey guys/gals,
My name is Mike, and I currently live in the York, Pennsylvania area. 
 
  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?

    -- I just started in October. I played for a year or 2 when i was 18-19 (total of 10 rounds), which was basically an excuse to hang with friends. I am 32 now and hit some balls at a range and ordered a 2nd hand set of clubs a week later. So far i have been to the range and simulator way more than the course. I have played a total of 36 holes. 2 rounds of 9, and 1 round of 18. My first full round of 18 i shot a 102. I just bought a Ghin number and once the season opens in PA i will get a proper handicap.
  2. What do you love about golf?

    -- The competitiveness, and the eagerness to get better. So far, golf has a funny way of giving you hope and then just ripping it away randomly. I love that. 
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

    -- I found this site while looking for recommendations for clubs and golf balls. Signed up immediately, but have just lurked in the background reading as much as I could.
  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

    -- I grew up in Western PA, not far from Punxsutwawney (think of the stupid groundhog LOL), but now live in the York, Pa area. I do not have a home course yet, but the 2 that i have been to are Hickory Heights in Spring Grove, PA and then Range end in Dillsburg, PA. I like both, but they are very different. 
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    -- so far, the weather is the worst thing. Cannot golf with snow and its pretty miserable in subfreezing temps. So far, everyone i have met have been pleasant and helpful for a new golfer, so that would be the best thing right now.  
  6. What do you do for a living?

    -- I am a hydrogeologist for a company in Maryland. Work with Groundwater. Ironically, the last job i worked on was a New golf course/housing complex in southern Delaware. Crazy how that works, I start playing golf, and my next job is finding groundwater for a golf course. Pretty neat.
  7. How’d you pick your user name?

    -- Graduated Penn state in 2010, and Mey123 was my designated name for all things in the PSU sytem (Email etc). 


Another York person!! Yes!!! I’m in Etters. We’ll have to get out for a round. Ever do Royal Manchester?

I am in. It would be great to meet you and get out together when we can. Only a few of my friends golf and the ones that do are from where i grew up (3 hours away).

Valley green is only about 30 minutes from my house (i live fairly close to Briarwoods golf course(s)), and have heard its a pretty nice course.

I think I am heading out to Royal Manchester Sunday, which appears to just be a few miles south of Valley Green.

Welcome Mike!   and small world . . .  I didn't think I'd find anyone on here who knew where Cherry Tree, PA was!  I grew up near there and actually made it back to play at Chetremon last year.   I also live near York now (between Manchester & Dover) - probably not far from you.  Looks like we are getting a nice Central PA group on here.  Feels like we need to get some folks together to hit a course when the weather finally warms up!

Small world is Correct. I grew up in Burnside, about 5 or so minutes from Cherry Tree...   And I agree, would be awesome to meet some of you

i dont think it was forest because carts are mandatory no matter what.  River and Meadow you can walk. These two courses are the ones right next to the clubhouse.  Forest is over 1/2 mile from the clubhouse.

 

they did a lot of work on the meadow, especially the back nine. Really tough.
