Glad to be here--didn't start playing till I was 40, got tired of "holding down the office" on Fridays.  Then--got really competitive about it, played in tournaments, got down to about an 8.  Then took a long hiatus to coach and play another sport.

Live in NOVA, play at Pleasant Valley, mostly with my son-in-law.  Working on getting competitive again.

So much to love about the game--the feeling of a well struck shot is something hard to describe--and to match--in any other sport or athletic endeavor.

Don't know any other golf spies, but use MGS recommendations quite a bit!

I'm a lawyer, own my firm, but I promise I'm not an A@#H#$e unless it's really necessary.  And it almost never is.

Well if you ever represent me for any reason, I’d want you to be an A@$$#% to the other side. 
 

I’m in Anne Arundel County but get out that way occasionally to visit 1757.   
 

We will definitely have a 2021 outing next yesr.  Maybe make it a 2 day shindig!

Hi All,

Long time reader, first time poster!

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

    I've played for fun for around 12 years (Just turned 25). While I've always loved it, hockey was my main focus through college.  My handicap is 13.x at the moment, and I typically shoot mid/upper 80's.  
  2. What do you love about golf?

    Relative to hockey, it's a much more sustainable sport to play competitively, through both handicaps and the level to which we compete with ourselves...not to mention it's much easier on the body as well.  It's also a great way to spend a day with friends and meet new people. 
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

    I've read both the site and forum for a while now,  and it felt like about time that I join.  While I know other readers, I am uncertain if any are members of the forum.
  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

    I live a few miles South of Pittsburgh, and my home course is The Club at Nevillewood. Bedford Springs is another favorite.
  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

    The hills and the hills. I think that they make for some tremendous scenery and fun yet challenging holes, but can also turn walking some courses into a hike, literally.  Obviously I wish it were 75 and sunny every day as well! 
  6. What do you do for a living?

    I work at a wealth management firm in an investment research role, and as an advisor/planner primarily for younger clients.
  7. How’d you pick your user name?

    It's simple - it is a nickname and my number from hockey days.

That sounds like a blast!  It's a beautiful drive between here, Harrisburg, and MD.  I'd be great to meet you guys and play some golf.

MGS New Member Introduction: Mid-Atlantic Region

New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia

Welcome to the MyGolfSpy forums! We’re always glad to have new members contributing to the best golf discussions on the internet.  If you’ve already created an introduction thread, feel free to re-introduce yourself here!

If you haven’t yet done so, take a moment to check out the Moral Codes that shape how we treat each other here.

You’ll find that this community is very welcoming to newcomers so come on in, take off your shoes, and get comfortable. Tell us all about yourself. To help us get to know you, here are some questions you might answer in your new member post. Feel free to share some fun pictures of your golfing ventures as well!

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

  2. What do you love about golf?

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?

  6. What do you do for a living?

  7. How’d you pick your user name?

Greetings everyone!

Not sure I had ever filled in the new member forum, but thought I'd revisit now.  Loved my interactions with everyone thus far in the forums so..

Anywho... answers to the questions

I'm Bob from PA.  

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Picked up the game around 21 and have been playing for the past 26 years.  Currently playing to a 4, but that like all of us goes up and down depending on my practice and round counts.  Typically shooting mid 70's with a low round of 68.  

  2. What do you love about golf?  I grew up in athletics and did pretty well for myself in the game of football.  As an All Star Nose Tackle and OL went on to play in college.  Unfortunately, that was cut short my first year due to a bad tear in my right shoulder.  Leaving the game, I still remained extremely competitive and wanted to find something I could continue to do to satisfy that need.  Golf was my grandfathers game, as well as my uncles so it was logical to venture on.  I'd say the complexity of getting better, learning the fundamentals and the fact that one never does perfect the game have been my fundamental draw.  Add in trying to constantly do better than the last round and or beating an opponent; I was hopelessly hooked on the game from the start!

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I've talked to a few so far and thoroughly enjoy being on a site and in forums with likeminded individuals that share my passion and enthusiasm for the game and gear!  That was probably what hooked me most.  You can read the so called experts and watch a million YouTubers (I do that as well sadly) but to talk to normal guys and gals that share your same passion is far more meaningful.  I also love to post and write up thoughts on gear and the game. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?  Originally I'm from Central Pa.  The Harrisburg region to be specific.  I've never really left the area because of family and work.  Truly enjoy the area and it's been wonderful to raise my children here.  Home course wise, I have three that I play with regularity.  First is Sunset Golf Course.  No, it's not Augusta... but for those whom have lived near and grew up on the River all their lives it's got the best views around.  It's also where I learned to play the game.  The second would be Dauphin Highlands.  Great track but the conditions are questionable most days.  The other course, probably my favorite, is Royal Manchester. What an amazing track.  Links style with fescue that would make you curse like a sailor and limp out after attempting to flail one out. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best would be the multitude of courses available to play within a very short drive.  There are just so many courses to play and all within 30-40 minutes, or less, from each other.  Worst, it's obvious... I'm from Pa.  It's the cold winters. They're definitely a bit brutal. 

  6. What do you do for a living?  I work for the Commonwealth of Pa.  

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  My name and my football number.  

That's all for now. Look forward to continue to chat with all of you!  It's been an absolute pleasure thus far. 

Thanks!

Bob

Hi Everyone - longtime lurker that finally decided to do an intro! Look forward to interacting with you all more and hopefully getting out and meeting y'all!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing for ~15 years and typically shoot in the low 80s. All-time best is a 75(+3), but that was about 10 years ago.

  2. What do you love about golf? Love that you can play it your entire life and that you can play it seriously, or casually with some friends.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Love the content that MGS puts out.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Born and raised in NOVA. Play out of TPC Potomac in MD, but am always up for an outing somewhere else. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Worst thing is price/availability of tee times and best would be the variety of courses.

  6. What do you do for a living? M&A/Strategy Consultant

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Name and old house number

Figured it might be good to throw a post in here and possibly connect with some folks nearby

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? First time I played was in college and played on very rare occasion over the past decade or so. During the fall picked it up more seriously and really enjoying the challenge of learning/improving. Informal handicap through 16 rounds tracked on 18birdies is 25.7. Hadn't been able to break through 100 and then last week played out of my mind and shot 87.

  2. What do you love about golf? There's a lot to love. Always been competitive so I love the competition against myself and others. Great to be outside and play casually with friends as well

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I came across the site while doing research for new clubs and loved the unbiased/data driven reviews. Don't know anyone else yet

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Live in Purcellville (Loudoun County/Nova). Typically play a lot of the courses in Front Royal as they're a little more in my price range. Have played Bowling Green North the most

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best thing is that there are a good amount of courses to try, worth thing is a lot of the ones in my immediate vicinity aren't cheap. 

  6. What do you do for a living? I'm the Area Director for Western Loudoun for a non-profit organization called Young Life

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

Welcome played Bedford springs a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Definitely above my normal price range but was worth the cost.

Welcome ! I was also a longtime reader and recently joined and have enjoyed the community so far. I live just across the river in Frederick County MD and every once in a while sneak over to Virginia and play raspberry falls. I feel you on having expensive courses nearby that's sort of my case, the two closest to me are really good courses but out of my normal price range. I tend to stick to the municipal courses. Welcome to the forum.

Welcome ! I was also a longtime reader and recently joined and have enjoyed the community so far. I live just across the river in Frederick County MD and every once in a while sneak over to Virginia and play raspberry falls. I feel you on having expensive courses nearby that's sort of my case, the two closest to me are really good courses but out of my normal price range. I tend to stick to the municipal courses. Welcome to the forum.

That’s awesome. I’ve got a couple buddies who live over that way. I’ve seen a couple courses pop up on Golfnow I’ll probably get over to play at some point. I saw you use the grint as well. Any quick reviews on that?

For sure come on over ! As far as using the grint I really like it it's the most intuitive of those type of apps that I've used and they also can provide you a real handicap if that matters. Again I just think it's the most intuitive on course. I like that you can move the GPS around to see your front middle and back numbers. I just put my phone on do not disturb so I don't get hit up for tons of text messages or phone calls and I just use my phone as a rangefinder.

Welcome played Bedford springs a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Definitely above my normal price range but was worth the cost.

It is such a fun course...lots of character.  I'm not sure if this is still the case, but they used to run some pretty good deals on Groupon.  My folks love Bedford as well, and that is how we first discovered it.

Well, been here forever and this is the first time I've seen this thread. Screw it, if the page is dumb enough to let me type in public, I'm dumb enough to do just that.

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? My first season playing golf full time seriously was 2018. I had played before, but only to use it as an excuse to drive a cart while drinking. My very first index was 26.5 in the summer of 2018. Over the winter of 2018/2019 though a few lessons, a proper club fitting, and more range balls than the Kardashian selfie library I had improved greatly. 2019 ended at 13.6, 2020 ended at 14.3. 

  2. What do you love about golf? I love having a battle with an opponent (the course) that just sits there and says "You sure you want to ride this train, big boy?". It mocks me, dares me to do better. There's nothing in the world of hobbies and sport to match the feeling of experiencing first hand all of your hard work pay off on the course. I'm an engineer and gravitated to the technical side of the game and that has really taken over. I'm even building my own golf tools now. Name me a sport where anyone can just jump in with now experience and find multiple things to enjoy on this level?

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The further I fell in love with the game the more honest information I needed. After a couple of months of reading other sites, and interacting with members it was clear that MGS was a place I felt like I fit in. When I member asks the community for advice, or information they aren't bombarded with 14 responses that read "Go get fit" from people who might have a little too tight a grip on things. You get good information, people share similar experiences, and the articles.....honest takes on reviews where the authors invite good debate, not belittle you for it. I did not know other Spies before joining, but I've been very happy to call more than a few friend since joining. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'm originally from Key Largo, Fl, but live in NYC now. Haven't been here long enough to have a "home course", and if I'm honest....I play the majority of my rounds in New Jersey. Hard to make a call. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best- Plenty of places to play in a close distance, a ton of Golf Mecca courses close to me (Bethpage, for example). BAD- cold weather/winters. Eff all these small number temperatures. And just exactly What in the chocolate covered f**k is all this white stuff on the ground?!?!?

  6. What do you do for a living? Disabled Veteran, retired from offshore oil (ROV's, google it) in 2015 and decided I wasn't ready to retire this young. So, I got a job. I'm an Operations Director for a raw building materials company now. 

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I mean, it's a cool name. I was shocked nobody grabbed it before I signed up....

Probably one of the best responses I've read for this exercise!  What I like about these is the opportunity to see members who write them as more of a whole person with character and experience.  I'm the other end of the state by Lake Erie but I spent the better part of 5 years in the middle of NJ at then Fort Dix in the garden part of the Garden State with an appreciation for NYC and Philly being almost centered between the two.  Much prefer the climate there but here isn't too bad either.  Great user name, like mine people always say why didn't they think of it first!  Good to make your acquaintance 👍
