Hey guys! 
My name is Alisa and I’m from Austin Texas!

  1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? 
    I “played” golf here in there through my childhood. My dad and uncle would take me to the range from time to time  I didn’t get seriously into golf until my freshman year of high school and I haven’t been able to put the clubs down since! I’m currently a scratch golfer trying to make it on the LPGA!

  2. What do you love about golf? 
    I love everything about the game! The challenge of every shot. You don’t always have the same shot each time. It’s always different, always a surprise. The ability to be able to test my game each time I go out is so much fun.   

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? 
    I have heard about it through friends who play and told me to follow on Instagram. Since then I love reading up on the posts and getting other Spies input on things. 

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course?
    Born and raised in Austin Texas! My home course is Balcones Country Club where I teach as well. 

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? 
    I love all the different courses in my region. Each course you play is different and allows you to work on different parts of your game. I just wish it didn’t get so hot in the summer!

  6. What do you do for a living? 
    I’m lucky enough to be around golf 24/7. I teach and play for a living!

  7. How’d you pick your user name? 
    I chose something super generic. I went with my first and last name with my favorite number 15! I grew up playing softball and it was my first love. I picked the number when I was 5 and wore it all the way though high school!

Hi folks. Since I can't play right now, looking to get my fix on sites like My Golf Spy.

  2. What do you love about golf? Perfect blend of strategy and athleticism. So many ways to play each and every hole.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I love the site's golf ball and other equipment reviews.

  4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Originally from El Paso, live in San Antonio. Canyon Springs Golf Club.

  5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? In the summer, the HEAT!

Morning ladies and germs. I've been playing golf for around 6 years now with the last year practicing more to get better. Was shooting in the 100's, then moved to the 90's last year, this year I'm currently shooting low to mid 80's.

Golf is fun for the most part, I just like being outside.

It's another forum to chat about, not sure if I know anyone here yet.

Bentonville, Ar with the home course being Lost Springs GAC in Rogers.

Best things about it are the number of courses around the NorthWest Arkansas area of varying difficulties and price ranges. Worst things would be the private clubs I can't afford to be a member at LOL.

I work in the medical field, username was something that I was called as a teenager.

  1. How long have you been playing golf? about 19 years, starting in my 40s.  What’s your handicap or normal score?   High 70s to Mid 80s, my index is 10.1 though recent detached retina surgery has hurt my game some so unfortunately I'm on an upward trend.

  2. What do you love about golf?  There's always something to work on (I'm a range rat.)  I can still enjoy the game even with bad knees and shoulders.  It gets me outside.

  3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Unbiased reviews, by far the best on the internet that I've found.  Do you already know any other Spies?  I don't.

  4. Where are you from? I'm from the Inter-mountain west, then Buffalo NY and now in the Fort Collins Colorado area.  What is your home course?  Southridge, a Fort Collins municipal, just because my company's league plays there (I mostly love to play and discover many different courses.)

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

    1. Best: There are many courses, Colorado golfers are very friendly, I get extra distance from my swing because of the altitude and dry air, there are very few rainy days, and I can usually play all year.

    2. Worst: It can be difficult to get tee times, it's a bit more expensive than Buffalo, and it can be pretty windy at times.

  6. What do you do for a living?  Embedded software engineering.

  7. How’d you pick your user name?  When I started playing back in the early 2000s, I was told playing anything less than 18 holes at once meant you weren't a real golfer so I took on the mantra of "Golf for the Masses" to advocate an attitude of being very passionate about golf even if I can't spend near five hours playing every round.
