Welcome! Grew up just outside of Pittsburgh and now live up near Harrisburg. We get together with some of the MD guys every year. Once we're able to and we get something planned you should come on up!

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.

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.

  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

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. 

 

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.

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.

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....

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing for about 20 years, but usually it has been infrequent over the course of a season due to kids, work, life. I recently stopped travelling for work and my kids are out of the house, so I'm hoping to lower my handicap and get better.  I usually shoot ~ 90 but I've been known to go higher and lower.

  2. What do you love about golf? I love the outdoors and being around other people.  I like the competition but I'd like it more if I got better or could be consistent. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I read a review about something and just kept coming back for more.  I love the podcast and the fact you do testing to hold companies accountable to their claims.   

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I've lived all over, but am in Hershey, PA area for now.  I live closest to Manada Golf Club in Grantville, PA, but there are several decent courses around me.  My favorite course is Penn National Golf Club near Chambersburg, PA.  

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best- decent places to play for not too much money ($35-40 prime time.   Worst - wish I could play year round.

  6. What do you do for a living? Work as an IT consultant for a major software company

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I graduated from the University of Texas and ended up in PA.  Seemed logical.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? 17 years. 9.1 at the moment.

  2. What do you love about golf? Is everything an acceptable answer? If I had to chose one thing, it would be the people. From playing partners to club professionals to the grounds crew and bartenders... It’s hard to have a bad day on the golf course when you are surrounded by quality individuals.
  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I have followed MGS for a while for reviews and best of lists; finally decided to check out the forums. Nope.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Bristol, TN. The Olde Farm (Bristol, VA)

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? World class golf. Course is closed from Jan 1 - March 23.

  6. What do you do for a living? Wealth Management.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Name I’ve used since I was a kid and played MMORPG’s

My name is Ray Shelley, been playing golf since I was young, grandfather was an avid golfer who shot his age multiple times.  I started getting serious about my game 3 years ago after finally giving up softball (really wish it had been a few decades earlier!).  Handicap was around 20, worked my ass off and am now in the single digits.  There is rarely day, thank you indoor simulators, when I don't pick up my clubs and get some kind of work in.  I guess there are worse addictions; but, my wife is not convinced right now.  I reside in Lancaster County, PA and as soon as it gets above 38 no wind/45 wind, I'll be out every day working to get better.  Always looking for some new blood to play with.   I play so much, I need a revolving group of guys (or gals) to play.  And yes, I will go out anytime alone early and get to my home office and get some work in before getting out again later in the day.  Come on daylight savings time!  If you are in the Southern, middle, SE of PA, MD, DE or Jersey, I'd love to play your course. This will be the first year as a club member since my long past father was a member of Lebanon CC.  I play so much and like to play quick, their 2021 new member deal was too good to pass up.  Lebanon is a Club Corp affiliate and being new to this CC thing, not exactly sure how it works.  But, it looks like I have access to some incredible courses.  Hope to see you out on the beautiful green grass that is tragically snow covered as I type.

Welcome aboard ! I live down in Frederick, MD but we have a cottage near Blue Ridge Summit, PA and I have played a little around southern PA. I am glad to hear that Penn National is a good course I have been eyeballing that one for this spring. My home course is the little 9 hole Monterey CC.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing for about 20 years, but usually it has been infrequent over the course of a season due to kids, work, life. I recently stopped travelling for work and my kids are out of the house, so I'm hoping to lower my handicap and get better.  I usually shoot ~ 90 but I've been known to go higher and lower.

  2. What do you love about golf? I love the outdoors and being around other people.  I like the competition but I'd like it more if I got better or could be consistent. 

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I read a review about something and just kept coming back for more.  I love the podcast and the fact you do testing to hold companies accountable to their claims.   

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I've lived all over, but am in Hershey, PA area for now.  I live closest to Manada Golf Club in Grantville, PA, but there are several decent courses around me.  My favorite course is Penn National Golf Club near Chambersburg, PA.  

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best- decent places to play for not too much money ($35-40 prime time.   Worst - wish I could play year round.

  6. What do you do for a living? Work as an IT consultant for a major software company

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I graduated from the University of Texas and ended up in PA.  Seemed logical.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Mid 80s is my usual score, I can get as low as 77 if my short game is working. 

  2. What do you love about golf? Love the fact that you never win. No matter what your score is you always feel that you left a few shots on the course.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? Love the reviews and advice on equipment and I don't know any other spies.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Live in Midland Park, NJ and don't have a home course other than the Bergen County courses.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? It's crazy expensive to join a club, it's hard to get tee times in the bergen county system, but we have a lot of good public courses within an hour drive.

  6. What do you do for a living? Public Relations and Marketing.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? I had a puppy that was incredible at breaking out of cages, so we combined Houdini and puppy and came up with Pupini as her nickname.
