Happy Belated New Years to the group.

First time I've had a chacne to check into this thread this year.   Let's hope 2022 gets sorted out quickly and we can all enjoy a year of golf and golf travel for those that want to do so.

As such, I am in the planning (in my head) stages of a group outing this summer.  

My intitial thoughts just to give some ideas.

It likely would be just outside the DC Metro area, in the Maryland side.

Probably a weekend in July (due to a personal and work schedule, that's pretty much the target)

2 day event, with Golf Saturday and Sunday and overnight accomodatins on site at the facility, for those that want to play both days and made a bit of a drive.

but open to those that can play either saturday or sunday only as well.   

So just spitballing maybe a group of 8 to 12 that play both days and stayovernight and maybe another dozen or so tht can make it on eithier one of the other days. 

Format would be very casual and fun, due to the that part of it, but we would try to incorporate some things that add some competive spirt.  

it would nto be an Official MGS outing, but I would extned the invite to the guys and ladies at HQ in case any of them are interested.

possible prizes or swag form OEM, but nothing too grand.

Those are the thoughts right now.  

I dont' want to say the location at this point, as it's nothing confirmed. 

 

Would be interested in something like this in the summer!  Would probably be one of the one-dayers, with kids at home and whatnot.

  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. 

I live in Mount Joy, PA, not too far from Grantville.  I have a co-worker who lives there and plays Manada a bunch.  I live on Highlands of Donegal in Mount Joy if you ever want to meet up for a round!

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

 

Bob, I live in Mount Joy, PA and love playing all three courses you mentioned.  I live on Highlands of Donegal in Mount Joy, and I also work for the Commonwealth!  Would love to meet up for a round sometime, especially at Royal Manchester...love that track.

Did anyone get out this past weekend?  I was made to suffer thru a Mrs. Nut's honey do list on such a beautiful day.  "Hey let's paint this room today."  Uhhhh ... "are you kidding me?  You couldn't have asked to do this when it's pouring rain all day?"  

My game is going to be non-existent the next time I hit the links.  It's been over a month & a half since I've hit the ball.  I haven't even been able to putt with the new flat stick on a real green.  Making 8 footers on a the Perfect Practice mat is getting boring! 😂

Sunday is my golf day and for the past month Sunday has been the ugly weather day.  It was 42 and sunny this past weekend so I did get out for a round.  Wish these 70* days would shift from working days to Sundays 😁

Hey all!

Brock Davison here from NYC.  Born and raised SoCal but moved out East 12 years ago for work.  

How long have you been playing golf?  
Caught the bug at the early age of 9 but really started focusing on my game about 7-8 years ago (38).  Currently sit with a 8.1 handicap.  
 

What do you love about golf? I mean, just pretty much everything about it.  Allows me to keep my sanity from the everyday. Very rare to find something you enjoy doing in life so often and for as long all while growing more in love with it as time goes by.

What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?  Been on this blog for a couple years now just don’t think I ever introduced myself. Hands down one of if not thee best blogs out there as the dedication you guys put into making the best content out there, is second to none   

Where are you from? What is your home course? Live in NYC with my home track being Ferry Point but grew up in SoCal where I was a member at PGA West for the majority of my young adult life.

What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Love the selection and variety of courses all within an hours drive.  Wish there were more golf leagues and club memberships tailored towards young adults.  Everything is either public or super private. 

What do you do for a living? Sell digital audio advertising for the company who’s logo is represented by a little green dot. 

How’d you pick your user name? First middle last 

Look forward to sharing my personal knowledge and opinions while soaking up your expertise as well.

  1. I played my first 18 holes just over 3 years ago and only played a few times before really getting into it last summer. I usually score in the 90s but sometimes over 100. My goal this year is to break 90 at 3 different courses.
  2. I think I love the endless progress of it. There's always improvement and work and you can hit some amazing feeling shots on the way.
  3. It's been a really great resource learning about equipment!
  4. I'm from the Philly area, and my home course will be Five Ponds this summer.
  5. The best I'd say is the variety of courses, though I don't know because I've never played anywhere outside of PA and NJ. The worst is definitely the cold months.
  6. I work at an advertising agency doing data analytics.
  7. It's basically just my email address haha

Hi… I’m from Harrisburg, PA.  I started playing the summer of 2020 (one of the good things to come from the pandemic) and have been addicted ever since.  My husband is a coach at heart and has been teaching me as we go.  I played last year pretty much every weekend as weather permited April through October and often two or three times a month in addition to that.  This year hasn’t been as open and I’ve obit played a few times.

My handicap is 33.  I’m still using my beginner golf clubs and would love some advice on how to score a decent pair of Womens clubs without breaking the bank.  I’ve been using my husbands Callaway driver but he’s getting a little bored with handing it to me after he’s finished his shot. 😁.

I found Golfspy when I was looking for reviews on golf balls and saw the forums and decided to join.

I’ve done administrative work in the past but currently he’ll care for my brother.  He has Down’s syndrome and now dementia and Parkinson’s.  He went into the hospital last Fall with Covid and had a stroke.  Poor guy has been through a lot.  He’s the joy of my life and I help my parents care for him.

There a several courses in the area that I really like.  Deer Valley, Sunset, Carlisle Barricks and Manada round out my top five but Lebanon Valley is number one.

I haven’t set my user name yet but if I can I’ll use it because it’s my husbands nickname for me.

I’m hoping to get some info on local courses, where to find good deals and how to improve my game.

Hello all! Long time lurker, first time poster.  I'm not new to golf, but if you watch me play you might think so! 😅

 

I live in Virginia and enjoy playing as much as I can, and am looking forward to my kids getting old enough to take them along on my golf adventures! Here's some basics about me, for anyone interested:

 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? - My dad got me some garage sale clubs and started letting me tag along with him as a teen, probably 25 years or so ago.  I'm not very good and don't have an official handicap, but I score a lot of 8's, and am excited to get a bogey.  I've birdied a couple of par 3's and a par 4 before though, which may not sound like much but for me it was exciting!

  2. What do you love about golf? - Being outside and in nature, the challenge, hitting a good shot after a terrible one.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? - When searching for reviews for a range finder I've been saving up for.  I've been lurking for a while and never made an account or posted until now though.  I don't know if I know any other spies or not, but not that I know of.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? - I'm currently living in Virginia, and don't really have a "home" course, I play whatever / wherever I can at the time.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? - When the weather is nice, it's REALLY nice, but when it's humid, it's awful!  So I guess weather is both the best and worst thing about golf around here hahaha

  6. What do you do for a living? - Firefighter / Paramedic

  7. How’d you pick your user name? - Old gamertag from years ago, based on nicknames an old boss gave me and a coworker.

Happy to be here, sorry this is so long!  Hope you have a great day and a good round of golf next time you play!
