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

    I've been playing for 23 years but I've gone through a few periods where I didn't play (2002-2005, 2008-2011, 2018-July). When I was playing competitively, I was down to a +3, but at the moment I'm a 2.5 mainly because I only play once a month.
  2. What do you love about golf?

    Obsessing over gear, exploring new places and courses, meeting new people, the endless challenge to get better.
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

    I've known about MGS since its early days. I'm very active on another forum but MGS has grown a ton so I wanted to check it out!
  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

    I'm in the Washington, DC area. I play most frequently at Laurel Hill Golf Club which is about 30 min south of the city.
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    I've only been playing in DC for a few months, but I'm disappointed with the quality and expensiveness of public courses. I also don't like the shorter season compared to Atlanta where I used to live.
  6. What do you do for a living?

    I'm a financial economist.
  7. How’d you pick your user name?

    What's the good word?!

 

As I mentioned, I only started playing again in the last few months so I'd love to make some new playing partners!

Welcome, I hear you on the expense of the courses.  You need to go out a bit to get some good deals, a bit south of Laurel Hills is Forest Green (Triangle) and Hickory Ridge (Woodbridge) both good choices, Forest Ridge for value and Hickory Ridge for quality.

if you go about 30 to 45 minutes north, there are some great choices, NorthWest, Blue Mash, Little Bennet and then the high end a bit further north of Worthington Manor, Whiskey Creek and and Musket Ridge

Hi,   I've been playing golf for about 15 years now. It happened by accident as I never thought I would be this addicted to the game. Not to mention waste a Saturday and Sunday afternoon watching

Hey everyone-

I've been a lurker for some time and was introduce to MyGolfSpy through a buddy and some mutual acquaintances who work at the Yorktown location. I'm a big fan of the site and enjoy reading up on the testing and testing results of all the products and equipment that MyGolfSpy investigates. 

Born and raised in Northern Virginia and loved the area so much that I never moved away. Grew up playing golf at my local courses and eventually had the opportunity to play for my high school team throughout school. Played at little bit for the Club Golf team at JMU and have been playing the game for almost 20 years now. I'm lucky enough to not only teach at the high school I graduated from, but also serve as the varsity golf coach. So it's safe to say that I spend more than half of my time in the summer and fall months at a golf course in and around Northern VA. Since I'm around the game so much, my handicap normally sits around a 3-5 depending on the season.

I grew up playing Brambleton Regional Golf course in Loudoun County and consider it my home course even though I'm not a member. I was their Club Champion in 2018 (Low Gross) and our high school team uses their facilities for practices and matches. I also I work at a local private course and have the opportunity to play there on off days and weekends around the members.

Glad to be a part of the club!

Welcome as well!  I'm a neighbor from across the river, around the beltway and up I-95 🙂   But I travel out that way to play when I can one of the courses in our portfolio is 1757.

Glad to have you on board and feel free to jump in and join the conversation.

Welcome to MGS!  I'm in Loudoun County as well.  I play mostly Raspberry Falls as I live only about 10 minutes from there in Lucketts.  But I do get out to Brambleton & Algonkian a few times as well.  I'll play wherever I can find other's to play with.  Driving is not a problem as I play out in the Shenandoah Valley a lot cause it's cheaper, not to mention the fact that courses are closing all over the county.
