Welcome. And thank you for what you to do keep us safe.

Of course!  I promise it's nothing like TV or movies, hahaha.  It's a good job though, and I enjoy helping others.

 

I used to be in NOVA but have steadily been moving further and further south as my need for a larger home has changed due to my growing family.  I'm about 1:15 from DC (with no / light traffic), and 45mins north of Richmond.  Just moved down here about a year ago, and love it so far!

Definitely SE hahaha!  My parents used to live in Newport News, and I used to visit them down there pretty often.

Ever play the "Hamptons" golf course, or do you tend to stick to nicer/private club type of courses?  The Hamptons one isn't in great condition I didn't think, but it was priced well and still good enough for me to enjoy at my skill level.  I struggle with consistently hitting straight and judging distances, so condition of the course isn't really going to affect my game too much one way or another at my level hahaha.

 

Where do you usually play?

Ive played the hamptons quite a few times and  it is one the places I go practice putting and pitching.    

For personal rounds I usually play Royal New Kent, Vinaterra, Kiskiack, and Golden Horseshoe Green course.  We play other  places occasionally.   My golf league plays the woodlands, sleepy hole, cypress creek, and riverfront.    Generally I am willing to play most anywhere.

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?

1. I started playing golf when I was probably 7 or 8 years old, maybe younger.   Both of my Grandfathers and my Dad played all the time and started me very young.  My grandfather recently passed away and when I was helping clean up his garage I found the old pitching wedge that he had cut down so I could learn the game as a kid.  

2. I just love the outdoors and the peace and quite of the game.  I love the challenge of the game and the fact that you never can perfect it.  When I play I love to bomb drives and take risks, I have never been very good at playing smart and that is why my scores have probably never been as good as my potential is.

3. I found MGS while looking for reviews on clubs years back.  I have lurked around ever since.

4.  I am from South Jersey. (yes we divide the state up internally and everyone disowns the middle)  I don't have a home course, but I was fortunate enough to grow up play Tavistock CC as a Caddy and my home course in High School.  My Grandfather and Great Grandfather were members there for years.   Now I just like to play and can appreciate any course.

5  Best thing about golf in my region is the number of courses.  The worst thing about golf in my region is cost and the lack of 9 hole options.  With a young daughter at home I can't always swing 18 holes.  I wish more courses had an affordable 9 hole option. 

6.  I have been fortunate to be a full time firefighter for the last 25 years, 22 with my current department.  I love what I do and am looking forward to retirement so I can spend more time with my family and play more golf.

7.  My username is one I have had for years.  A combination of my FD and my badge number.

1. Love getting together with family and friends for some healthy competition while enjoying some good beer.

2. Always looking for the latest and greatest golf equipment. My cousin got me into MGS and I love the unbiased reviews. Have already bought some equipment based on a couple of posts and have not been disappointed. 

3. Currently living in Lancaster, PA. Don't really have a home course. Been enjoying playing public courses in the area and around Philly/South NJ. If you're ever in this area, recommend checking out Iron Valley in Lebanon, PA. 

4. Best thing about golf in my area are the variety of courses, even have a few links courses nearby and they're all reasonably priced. Worst thing about being in my area is that my regular crew all live 1-2 hours away. 

5. I'm a healthcare worker. 

6. Combination of nicknames from college friends

Hello all... Been a MyGolfSpy Youtube mark for awhile and found the forum pages somehow.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? I've been playing since high school, but spent my college years and 20's with my starter clubs in the storage shed at my parents house. Playing with a passion since the mid-90's.

  2. What’s your handicap or normal score? HCP 12.3 (trying to get that down in the single digits.

  3. What do you love about golf? It's like shooting baskets. You can play and practice by yourself, but it is best when you show out with a group.

  4. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? YouTube & Email subscriber

  5. Do you already know any other Spies? Not sure if I know any other spies, but I hyp MGS up to all my friends.

  6. Where are you from?  Grew up Metro DC (AKA: DMV), now live in Richmond, VA area.

  7. What is your home course? Historic Belmont Golf Course. It has recently been changed from the original design which held a US Open in the early 1900s

  8. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Worst is the weather. Rarely can play yer round comfortably. Have to play before 10A in July-August otherwise you have a chance to stroke out.

  9. What do you do for a living? Retired Law Enforcement, Current Compliance Officer

  10. How’d you pick your user name? Homage to my Daughter Camryn, born in 99.
