  7. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Best: Being able to play all year. (Came down from New England).  Worst:  I've never played anywhere with so much water, creeks , ponds, lakes,  if it's wet it's here.

  8. What do you do for a living? Happily retired 3 years. (Was a software tech/sales support guy)

  9. How’d you pick your user name?  Term picked up from an old Kaizen class from the eighties.

 Hi everyone.  Thanks for welcoming me to the forum.  I'm lucky enough to live in South Florida, so I play golf (as does my wife) year-round.  Love the game, and love being outside. 

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  Current handicap 14.4

  2. What do you love about golf? The beauty and the challenge.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I really don't know anyone here.  I enjoy reading reviews by the members and thought I might help someone else out by providing some of my experience. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? The closest one would be Osprey Point in Boca Raton.  We golf there about 8 months a year.  It's a Palm Beach County public course, but is jammed in the winter months.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Golf gets expensive in the winter, and with all the snowbirds, it gets very crowded and slow.  You have to pick less popular spots over the winter for a quicker round.  The good news is we have options.  The courses here are well maintained and we have a lot of wildlife.   

  6. What do you do for a living? Technology sales & business development.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? Easy - my first name and last initial.  Not too creative I know.

Welcome aboard from Georgia!

Hey y'all,

Joined a while back but never had time to participate in the forums. Hoping to be more active. Some details to get to know me:

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Right now I'm up to a 19 (sad!) but I was an 11 a few years back. Working back towards it.

  2. What do you love about golf? Being engrossed in the game and trying to play the smartest round possible.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The content & the community. I don't know anyone here yet.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Louisville, KY. Don't really have a home course, play all over.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Long rounds are the worst. 5 hour rounds kill me. The people playing golf in KY are, by and large, wonderful though.

  6. What do you do for a living? Sell fried chicken online.

  7. How’d you pick your user name? It's my gmail 🤷‍♂️

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
    I played golf off and on as a kid and got more into it once I started college. I only went 5-10 times a year even then because of my commitment to playing baseball in college. After graduating for the last 3 years I’ve gotten much more into it and play around twice a month. I don’t have an official handicap but my estimate is it’s sitting right around 16-18 .

  2. What do you love about golf? 
    I love being able to stay competitive and really compete with myself. It requires all focus and energy and rewards and punishes you accordingly.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? 
    I’m here to learn about the game and the equipment to help me improve my game. I like the idea of having a support system and people to consult and help when possible.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? 
    I’m from Leesville, South Carolina. I don’t necessarily have a home course, but I most often bounce around between Pine Ridge CC, Midland Valley CC, and Persimmon Hill GC.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? 
    The best thing is the weather. It gets hot but some days it’s still tolerable and winter golf is not an issue for the most part. The worst thing is the constant hard pan bunkers. Apparently good sand is hard to come by in SC... You would think otherwise. Greens also tend to get scorched at public courses.

  6. What do you do for a living? 
    I teach middle school and coach high school baseball.

  7. How’d you pick your user name 
    My first name and my late younger brother’s/my senior year in college baseball number.

Hey guys! Wanted to formally introduce myself since I am gonna try to be active on these forums as much as I can. I figured I would answer some of the questions posted in the topic post. Here we go: 

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

    1. I just recently picked golf back up about 10 months ago, I had not played the game since I was 6. My Current HCP is 17.9. 

  2. What do you love about golf?

    1. I love the friendship the game can bring, and how difficult golf can be. I enjoy the struggle to improve and the milestones you can reach in my golf journey.  

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? 

    1. I always came to this website to read up on new equipment and technology introduced to the game and was always fascinated with new clubs and the results they produced. I then noticed that there was a forum within this website, so I figured I would join to have a place to discuss the game of golf.

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

    1. I am from Orlando, FL but currently living in Merritt Island, FL. My current home course is the Savannahs Golf Course in Merritt Island, FL. 

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

    1. Best: In FL, golf can be played year round so that's a big positive.

    2. Worst: The slow snowbirds all year round golf brings (no offense), I cannot stand slow play. 5 hour rounds are just not my thing I guess. 

  6. What do you do for a living?

    1. Currently working as a Physical Therapy Tech (pretty much a paid intern)

Thanks for reading. Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I’ve been playing golf now for about a year so I guess I’m pretty new at it. I’m currently playing off a handicap of 14.

  2. What do you love about golf? I love the challenge of golf. There’s not a lot of forgiveness and it takes a ton of practice to actually be good. I played all kinds of sports growing up but as I got older and my body couldn’t keep up with more joint stressing sports, I took up golf. Golf also allows me to spend quality time with my father which you can never get enough of.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I found MyGolfSpy through researching of clubs and golf balls. I’m sure I know another spy but I don’t actually know of any.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am from Raleigh, NC and my home course is either Lonnie Poole at NC State or Reedy Creek.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best: The sheer number of public courses available. There’s so many good public courses around that are highly maintained and extremely nice. Worst: slow play haha...but I think that exists everywhere 

  6. What do you do for a living? I work in pharmaceutical manufacturing at a company called Novo Nordisk. 

  7.  How’d you pick your user name? It’s my first 2 initials and my last name.

Hi Im Brooks

I have been playing golf for about 14 years. I am a 14 handicap.

I love playing this game. I love seeing new courses and their designs. I am a little bit of a equipment junkie.  Not that I know a lot about it, but love to rad about it and try new equipment.

I am new to joining the forums but not new to mygolfspy been reading for almost five years.

I am from Charleston, South Carolina.

Its a fun place you can play golf year round, the summers do get a little hot though.

My user name is one I have used for many things for a long time.

  1. I've played since I was 7 years old. I play off a 9 handicap.

  2. I love that it's a game you can play your whole life.

  3. I like the GolfSpy reviews. Don't know any current golf spies.

  4. Living in Jacksonville, FL.  There are lots of great courses here.  I don't belong to any of them.

  5. The best thing about golf here is you can pretty much play year round.  The worst thing is probably how crowded the courses can get.

  6. I make my profession in aerospace.

  7. It's my name!

1. I have been playing golf seriously for about 3 years. 3 years ago, during any given round I was shooting somewhere between 110 and 120. Today, I’m an 18 handicap, working just about everyday to keep bringing it down. 
 

2. What I love most about golf is the feeling of accomplishment you feel when you’ve been working at a particular part of your game when it starts coming together. Looking back and seeing how far you’ve come. Just seeing all the reps and hard working pay off. 
 

3. I came to my golf spy forum for the endless golf talk. I like seeing what everybody’s opinion of various golf topics.

4. I am from Elizabeth City, NC. I am currently a member at The Sound Golf Links at Albemarle Plantation.

5. The best thing about golf in my region is the Southern look and feel of courses here in Carolina. To me, there is nothing else like it. The worst thing about my region is it can be really swampy and muggy. In the summer, after a hard rain and the sun comes out, it feels like you are playing golf in a sauna. 
 

6. I am currently Active duty Coast Guard Stationed here in Elizabeth City, NC. 
 

7. My Username is my name and name and favorite number haha
