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

I have been competitively playing for about 2 years.  Been dabbling for around 5 years.  Got my handicap down from a 28 to a 10.7.

What do you love about golf?

I love how no matter how good you can get, there is always room for improvement.  It’s the ultimate side hustle.  Work is always going to be work, but I strongly believe that your passions are going to be where your hobbies and family lie.  Golf is th ehobby that always leaves you wanting more.

What brings you to MyGolfSpy?  Do you already know any other Spies? 

Honestly, it was the golf ball test that drew my attention to MGS.  I don’t know any other spies.

Where are you from? What is your home course?

I’m from Osoyoos, British Columbia.  Yes, I know I’m in Canada, but we share the border with Oroville.  My home course is Osoyoos Golf Club.

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

Best is that our golf season is on average at least 8 months long which is ridiculous for Canada.  Cost for a membership is also cheaper at some of the courses here if you’re under 40.  The worst would be that my home course uses refuse water on everything so the greens end up inconsistent and slow...and everything smells like poop.

What do you do for a living? 

I’m a sports chiropractor.

Welcome to the forums!!  Glad you joined us.  I'm straight south of you about 4 hours.  That's quite a drop in HC from 28 to 10.  Nice!!

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

Been golfing since last year 2019, so about a year. My handicap is about 23.

 

  1. What do you love about golf? The challenge and thrill of hitting a great shot as well as a personal development tool to better my relationship with myself and my thoughts. It forces me to get out of my head and into my body.

  2. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I am looking for a community where I can connect with other fellow golfers since I have become a little obsessed with the sport.

  3. Where are you from? What is your home course? Wenatchee, WA - 3 Lakes is my home course, but I have been going to HIghlander quite a bit lately.

  4. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best is that we have several courses to choose from within a 30 minute drive. The worst is that they are all overpriced for the most part besides 3 Lakes. This is becoming a retirement community so they target those demographics for better or worse.

  5. What do you do for a living? I am a business banker for a credit union.

  6. How’d you pick your user name? Jessi is my nick name that I have gone by my entire life and big dog, well cuz a golfing buddy has been calling me that since I am tall, so it just kinda stuck.

Welcome Jessi.  Glad you joined us.  I live in the Tri-Cities and have played a few courses near Chelan.  Wenatchee is beautiful country; used to ski in my younger days at Mission Ridge; also autocross at Pangborn Field and the Pine Canyon Hill Climb just before you get to Waterville.

Although expensive, you need to get to Gamble Sands in Brewster.  Same architect as Bandon Dunes.  

Make it a weekend and play GS, Desert Canyon and Bear Mountain Ranch.  But don't pick a windy day!!!

Hi everyone. Great to connect on here. My name is Jacob as you can see from my username. Not sure how or if I can change it lol. I live in Bend, OR and a member of Broken Top. Just joined this year. I really got into golf in the last couple of years. Took my first lesson this year and completely hooked now. My handicap is 27, but my goal is to be consistently shooting in the 90s next summer. Still have some work to do. Looking forward to connecting with folks.

It's fun.  I enjoy playing in Bend/Redmond/Sisters too.  Usually make it down there once a year; missed this year because of COVID.  Several of us PNW Spys were planning a trip for June 24.  Maybe next year.

We'll keep you in mind.  @Thin2win and @fixyurdivot and I went to Circling Raven at Lake Coeur d'Alene because others dropped out of the Bend trip.  We can certainly try for Bend again next year or any other options depending on who signs up.
