Been using MGS for reviews on gear for a while now (I tend to obsess and nerd out over gear in all my hobbies) so I figured I would get in on the forum action. Technically I live just across the border, but work in WA so most of my rounds are in the Bellingham area.

Been playing golf for probably 10 years or so, but only got serious about it in the last couple of years (after I downloaded the GolfShot app and started tracking my rounds). 23 handicap, so I know I suck, but I managed to put up a +13 net score just last Friday while out with my brother (on a par 63 course) so I feel like things are trending up! I was actually hitting even par on the back nine until I double-bogeyed 18, but now I'm anxious to get back out and play another round!

1.    How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I’ve been playing since around 1988.  I’m just an 18 handicap but feel like I’m on the verge of playing some great go

Welcome from the dry side of WA!!  On any given day, any of us suck at golf!!  It's the nature of the game.  It just provides added incentive to improve.  I started playing 28 years ago at age 45, and it has been a long, slow adventure to get better.  Enjoy it!

We don’t stop playing the game because we get old; we get old because we stop playing the game.”

Where in Bellingham do you play? I'm 20 minutes south of there, but would happily head north if you wanted to get a round in. I'm a member at Avalon, and at Skagit country club if you want to play further south sometime.

North Bellingham and Shuksan are my go-tos if I'm playing 18, or Homestead up in Lynden. I'm usually trying to golf on a budget though, so my most played course is Raspberry Ridge, the local par-34 9-hole where you can get $15 super-twilight rounds with free replay (race the sunlight to get a full 18 in!).

I've never played raspberry Ridge, but I've heard it is fun, I used to live right by Padden, so I've played that one the most. But all are fun. Really, I'm up for golf, so let me know.

Will do! I'm going to try and cross the border for work tomorrow and moving forward, so if they let me in then I'll be looking for some late afternoon/early evening weekday partners fairly soon.

I've never golfed in BC, but I do have a nexus, so that would be possible to once the border reopens

2.  I love just getting outside, the shots that keep you coming back, the challenges physical and mental.  
 

3.  Not sure, I like reading the myspy reviews and reading about new gear and etc.  Didn’t even know there was a forum. 
 

4.  Bozeman, MT - Riverside, CC 

5.  summer is awesome here and worst is Bozeman is growing way to fast.  
 

6.  I am a Officer recruiter for the US Navy (2 more years till retire). My wife and I also own Aveda lifestyle Spa and Salon.

@fixyurdivot is right in your neck of the woods. We do an annual PNW golf event, this year's has been rescheduled due to obvious reasons, but we are looking at heading to Boise for some golf.

I hear you there! This was my tee shot with my driver on #3 at Homestead Farms on Wednesday - 235 yards of carry, -1 yard of roll-out. Also the only hole in the round (9 holes) that I got both FIR and GIR, so of course I 3-putted for a bogey.

I hit one the other day that buried itself in the ground in the middle of the fairway.

Nice over here in the Columbia Basin as well.  Nice and dry, but 92º today.  Supposed to cool off to the upper 80's this weekend.  Fairways are firm and fast!!

I sorta wish that we had kept the PNW outing next week in Bend.  Headed to Indian Canyon in Spokane and Circling Raven in Idaho instead.  Idaho has restaurants open but Spokane doesn't.

My wife and I were supposed to join my family for a vacation down in Sunriver next month, but with the border closure continuing it doesn't look like that will happen.

You would be surprised how many Washington residents have been traveling to the Central Oregon area for the month or so
