I used to work a Cazenovia Park Golf Course for 5 years during college, I’m sure we’ve crossed paths before. Good to see more Buffalo guys on here.

I have my first ever season pass this year at Cazenovia Park Golf Course, been playing there a few times a year for the past few years.  Also South Park Golf Course when the Leagues are taking the tee times that fit my schedule, afternoons weekdays after work.

I would say Glade is an upgrade over Maple and a downgrade from Clustered. Granted I havent been to any of these courses this year.

Second round for this course, this time following the introductory piece for this forum and the suggested format.  Reading my fellow Spies posts I think there is great value in this introduction exercise 🙂👍

  1. How long have you been playing golf? Started playing golf in April 2011. What’s your handicap or normal score? SwingU says it is 31 and I would have to agree. 

  2. What do you love about golf? Everything; the equipment (which is about the only thing I can control easily), the courses from design to aesthetics and beauty of the place, the game for its challenge and exercise, and the people who regardless of background come with a zeal for golfing and community of like minded people.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? The articles I came across when researching the equipment I had and what I was interested in finding, specifically the review of push carts that helped me choose the one I intend to be a one-time purchase. Do you already know any other Spies? Don't know anyone yet but always open to best of friends I have not met yet!

  4. Where are you from? West Seneca, NY which is southeast of Buffalo. What is your home course? Cazenovia Golf Course of the Olmstead Parks Conservatory.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Excellent variety of courses in design, topography, and type of club are the best part.  Weather and climate, especially climate making a golf off season from November to April are the worst part.

  6. What do you do for a living? Finance office staff, Buffalo Regional Office, VBA.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Putting was my first love of golf, the putter my first owned club, and a healthy application of reverse psychology.  If you believe you can do something then everything is possible.  ⛳.                    🏌️‍♂️

I always forget about Glade. I'll have to give a try this year. I played clustered right before the courses closed down and it was in pretty good shape, I recall the greens having some speed to them.

I haven't played Glade in.... 5-7 years? The last time I played there they either just got new owners or were about to change ownership, some buddies told me that the course has gotten nicer in that time. I always thought it was the best deal in the area in terms of quality/price.

From what I remember, it was a step down in quality from Clustered, but it's been a while since I've been in the area

Last time I went to Glade was a crazy nice day in February like 2 or 3 years ago. The course was so backed up I played a loop of 1 and 2 a total of 4 times. Most insane thing I had ever seen. Guy drove past me on 2 and said he was done, it had taken him 2 hours and he had only gotten 5 holes. Makes it hard to go back after that interaction.

Hey All,  Just here to say hi.  Working on my game and here are some quick facts.

  •  

  • How long have you been playing golf?  Started when I was 14, played in high school then causally since.

  • What’s your handicap or normal score? RIght now it's a 10.0, came down a bit this year.  Hope to be a 9 by end of this season

  • What do you love about golf? Being outside, the challenge and the fact that I can compete as a middle aged out of shape person

  • What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Great articles and awesome podcast

  • Do you already know any other Spies? nope, hope to change it

  • Where are you from? Chantilly Virginia

  • What is your home course? South Riding Golf Club

  • What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best: lots of options and great courses.  Worst: Cost to play.  Weekend rounds under $100 at an ok course are tough.

  • What do you do for a living? Meteorologist for IBM

  • How’d you pick your user name? Same username I've had since I was a sophmore in High School for just about everything

Does anyone else in the area use Game Golf to track their rounds? Would love to connect with some of you through the app for anyone else that has it. Like this and reply with your username to connect. 

Thanks!

  1. I have been playing golf since graduate school.  Never more than 10 rounds a year until I met my now wife, her father is a big golfer so I got more into it to join him on outings and to get to know him better.  Currently sitting at a 19 handicap, but this year I took a few lessons so I am hoping that goes down!

  2. I love being outdoors.  I also enjoy that you can be doing something competitive within yourself, always trying to improve for the sake of improvement.

  3. I have been a consumer of MGS content for awhile, and just decided to start reading and posting occasionally on the forums. 

  4. I grew up in upstate NY, lived in the Buffalo area for awhile, and now live back in central NY (eastern side of Syracuse).  No home course, I play a few different ones near Syracuse.

  5. The  variety of courses and cost is pretty good.  Snow obviously hinders playing for a large segment of the year.

  6. I am an engineer, so the decision making and numbers part is what I like most about golf.

  7. I grew up in NY, and when I was a kid, my favorite college football team was the Florida State Seminoles.

I used to use Game Golf for the last 2-3 years, unfortunately I think it lost it's luster with me and I stopped this year.  I don't think I need much more technology to tell me that I miss 80% of my drives to the right and hit too many irons/wedges fat. 🤣

Wow!!!  Welcome to all the new members that have posted over the past week or so.  It's great to see so many new people jumping in and getting involved.  I wish I could respond to each of you individually, but you far outnumbered the time I have 🙂

That said, as golf gets back up an running here, I think it's time we put on our first Maryland-I say Maryland as that's where we'll host it, but it's obviously open to anyone,  PA/VA/DE/NJ/NY/NC  anywhere!! 

As some of you know, newer members probably don't.  I work at a course and am happy to host the group, we have had a couple small outings here before.  Advantages are, I can cut us a good deal, location.   It's pretty central to a lot of people---near BWI and a bit north of Annapolis.  

Cons are, some of you have played here before, and I always enjoy playing somewhere new 🙂

I think there are still some group size restrictions in a lot of places, so maybe we shoot for somewhere around the middle of July, thinking by then clubhouses might start opening up. 

Maybe July 11 or 12 weekend or July 18/19 weekend.  

Also if anyone has any preferences to course or location, let me know as well.   To give you an idea, depending on how many we have,  I could probably get us somewhere between $39 and $59 for fees, our normal weekend fee is $71.
