The membership was too good to pass up. I typically am able to walk 9 once on the weekend and once during the week. During the summer, I should be able to get 2-3 rounds per week in. I played there a few weeks ago, the bunkers were a mess but the rest of the course was in decent shape. My membership runs through June 2022, so your membership should be good for a while.

Have the greens filled in?  There were a few last year that were unplayable.  The grass was sparse and the exposed sand base had you putting through mini sand traps.  I played it for on course driver, iron & wedge practice.  But even for iron & wedge practice you had to look hard to find spots in some 'fairways' that had any grass at all.  But for the $200 two year membership it was still worth it for me.  👍

The greens were actually in good shape. Much better than last year. The course really struggles maintaining conditions with long periods of rain or heat. By the end of last summer, a few greens were definitely unplayable. Much like you, for $200 over 2 years, I feel like I more than get my money's worth by walking 9 holes a few times per week.

Cross posting this into our Mid-Atlantic group b/c I think it's such a great cause!

Hello All !! I've been on this site for a few months and decided to join it today so lets answer those questions.

1. I'm 61 yrs old and I've been playing golf on and off since I was 10. My HC before kids was around 9 but as we all know having kids puts a damper on some of our activities so now I normally score 84 to 86.

2. Love golf for all the beautiful scenery, playing with my father in law who is 93 yrs old and can still shot in the upper 80's. Playing with my son who is starting to appreciate the game but of course his first love is swimming and how challenging the sport can be both physical and mentally.

3. Found MGS on YouTube and the rest is history. Dont know any other spies. 

4. I live in NE Pa. with my wife and two kids. My home course is Blue Ridge Trail a beautiful 27 hole course in the mountains of NE Pa.

5. Best thing about golf in my area is the price to play. Not super expensive to play I'd say between $35 to $50 a round which includes cart. Worst thing in the area is the lack of golf equipment. Cant really go to a place and hit 5 or 6 different mfgrs other than Dicks Sporting Goods which only have the big 3 or 4 companies with only a few models of each mfgr.

6. I am an Electrical Engineer.

7. When I played baseball and softball that's what my teammates an friends called me.

I won’t have much free time for travel.  But if a meet up is close enough to me, I’m down.

Just have no idea which game will show up, Jekyll or Hyde...

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? I fluctuate between a 14-17 

  3. What do you love about golf? all of it.  i'm a tinkerer so being able to mess with clubs, my swing, etc it all appeals to me!

Hello to all from upstate NY,

  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?

I have been playing golf for 36 years but only only 5-6 times a year. Now playing 2-3 times per week since my 14yr old son loves the game. Currently 18 handicap but looking to work my way to single digits by next year.

The feeling  you get after hitting a club flush and watching that 20ft putt fall.

Just found it through an email

From Saratoga, NY area, home course is Ballston Spa CC

I work in Supply Chain Management, kind of a mess right now due to Covid19

My favorite basketball player was George Gervin or The Iceman

  1. How long have you been playing golf? 20+ years

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? Between a 7 and 9

  3. What do you love about golf? Grass under my feet. Blue sky above.  Nothing bothering me but 1000 swing thoughts. 🙂

  4. where are you from, home course:  Originally from NE.  Home course is Lakeside Park Club, Richmond VA

  5. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  I've been reading MGS reviews and recommendations for a long time and wanted to give back to the communinty.  I just met s SPY over the weekend too. 

  6. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Lots of options.  Now with the newly re-done Belmont we have a good number of public practice areas too.  Worst:  growing grass as we are in that weird temperate zone where bent is difficult and bermuda isn't really fully in play until mid June. 

  7. What do you do for a living? Chief Cultural Architect

  8. How’d you pick your user name? My dad always called me Zeke (also know as zero).  No idea why.  I did some research and Zeke or Zero were the names of the planes the Japanese used at the start of WWII.  These planes were fast and maneuverable.  So I embraced it.  I sign most documents with my same and then my version of a flying z.  

  First post here.  Looking forward to some conversations and playing golf with other Spies.  I'm also relatively active on the NLU Refuge and I'm a big supporter of The Golfer's Journal.

Hello from Essex County, NJ! 

I'm originally from Indiana, then shuffled around a bit. Just recently moved out of Manhattan after 8 years to purchase a home during the pandemic, so still getting to know the area. 

  • Played on and off (around 5-10 rounds a year) for the past 15 years, but just now really starting to play regularly (at least once a week). Handicap is 18, but hoping to get that below 15 by the end of the summer
  • That 1-3 shots per round that go exactly where you wanted them, and the 5-10 you get lucky on... they constantly have the abilty to overshadow the other 75 shots of the day
  • Been using MGS to read unbiased reviews (which have greatly affected my purchasing) for the past year or so
  • Home course is Francis Byrne Golf Course - if you're a local, hit me up! Constantly looking for an extra.
  • Best - lots of courses. Worst - terribly difficult to get tee times most places
  • I'm in Advertising - client services
  • AdManScott =  I'm in Advertising...and the other two parts - well, those are probably self explanatory

Would love to meet up with some locals at some point!

1. I've been playing 15 years but my handicap doesn't reflect that as a 13. For me, a bad scoring round still beats any day I'm not playing golf!

2. I love golf cause it's a mental challenge for a hack like me, it's cheaper than therapy, plus gives me a guaranteed pass out of the house any time. 

3. Been viewing this site for a while and just decided to join so I could link up with other golfers in my region and maybe get some tips to improve my game.

4. I live in Upper Marlboro, MD and my home course is Oakcreek Golf Club.

5. Up here it's not as sweltering hot or humid like the south... but it's more expensive and cold so we can't play all year round.

6. I'm a Maintenance and Electrical Business Owner (really I'm just my wife's full-time handy man)

7. My user name is my initials and dream score... again I'm a hack so 59 is just that, a DREAM!

Anyone have any interest in meeting up sometime this summer as a group?  If so, I can probably set something up in Delaware (I know, I know not too many of us on here from DE) or Ocean City, MD if you guys want.  I was thinking if you guys wanted to come to the beaches there are plenty of great golf here.  Maybe Baywood Greens, Lighthouse Sound etc.  

If interested, just let me know and I can start working on it.  If not, no big deal.  Thinking maybe August or September once the tourists leave.
