Why no kick this one off and hope that it ends up being the biggest one! No not a new member but we have to start with someone!

1. I have been golfing most of my life, but only taking it more seriously the last 5 or 6 years. I've got my handicap down to a 9 and am typically in the low 80s and creep into 70s at my home track. And more importantly I'm a lefty!

2. I love golf for the ppl you meet along the way and taking time to be outside and enjoying all the different sights and landscapes many courses offer. Shout out to NZ who has many more courses I need to explore!

3. MGS is my home for everything golf. Although I have been a member here for a while Nunfa0 is the only member I have met in person. It's a great community and keeps me entertained during the winter golf withdrawals.

4. I'm from Halifax Nova Scotia Canada and play a variety of courses with Lost Creek Golf Club being my home track. 

5. We have world class courses here that are truly stunning ... However we have horrible winter's that seem to never end. Being on the east coast of Canada out weather can be confusing and volatile with more severe storms each year. 

6. I work as an ice technician for curling clubs and events. Different I know but I truly love what I do. Plus summers are my off season!!

7. Originally I used Danbrook (my last name) however after the year was up I was in need of a change and went with Apolloshowl. Apollo is my pup who is now 6 years old. He is a Alaskan Klee Kai which is a mini husky. He has a really amazing howl that is more like talking and makes me laugh and smile. It's a name I've used for fantasy teams and more and felt very fitting for here. Plus it harks back to my hometown growing up with me growinh up on Apollo road. So lots going on with it!

Looking forward to reading more about my fellow international spy's!

Been  checking the site for a long time , and finally decided it was time to join. Most of my equipment  is influenced my MGS  “Most Wanted” list and I really enjoy reading your articles. I picked up golf late (in my 30s) and love all aspects of the game. My handicap is somewhere around 20 and I play all around SW Ontario.

I've been playing golf for 20+ years but have really taken it more seriously in the last 7 or 8 years.  I'm a 9 handicap, who is aiming to be a 7...  Aren't we all....  Handicap is frozen for the winter but my scores have really started to come down this winter.  Regularly shoot in the high 70's and low 80s, with the odd round in the low to mid-70s.  73 best round 3 times.  

I love the fact that as good as you can play you can never play a perfect game!  Keeps you coming back for more every single time!!  Love the comradery and friendly competition that brings golfers together!!  Other than my family memories, my best memories are of fun times with buddies on the golf course!!  Awesome!

I've been following MGS for a couple years now and decided to become part of the family.  #1 place to find any kind of golf content!!  Sorry Mark Crossfield, Rick Sheils, James Robinson....  etc...  Still, love you guys too...  Shout out to TXG Tour Experience Golf!!  Good Canadian kids!!!  Keep up the fine work!!

I'm from Vancouver in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada!  I'm a players club member at Morgan Creek Golf Course, which is where I play much of my golf.  However, my golf group will play at several different courses.  Sand Baggers and Whiners.

We have some very nice courses here in Metro Vancouver as well as world-class courses all over the province.  Our weather is the worst thing about where we live.  That being said, I have played every weekend since Sept until last week, when mother nature decided to dump 40cm (15 3/4 inches) on us.  Can't complain about our weather so far this winter...  It can melt anytime...

I'm a teacher.  Summers off to feed the addiction.  

Looking forward to getting to know like-minded golf fanatics!!

Cheers!!

Welcome neighbor!

If you have summers off, you are welcome to join us in July for a weekend of golf in the Spokane area.  @Har in the Hat started this off and Spokane seems to be central to those interested.  Here is the link to the thread...

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

  • Hi, My name is Peter and I'm from the little island across what you would call "The Pond", Old England. I'v been playing for 23 years and a handicap of 16.

  • What do you love about golf?

  • I'd watched golf on television when I was in my teens and always thought it needed too much accuracy and would cost the earth. 30 years later when there was a glut of golf clubs and they were basically begging you to join I tried it. Then the bug bit and 20+ years later I'm still trying to perfect my game. This last weekend I think I got close to what I would call feeling comfortable with how I play but it has been a Love/Hate relationship. Our club Seniors have a summer friendly competition with 17 other clubs in the South which I enjoy playing in.

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

  • I did a search for a review on Shot Scope and found you people.

  • Where are you from? What is your home course?

  • As I said, Old England, in the deep south near Bournemouth a coastal holiday town. Home course is Rushmore Golf Club high on chalk downs in a private estate with some gorgeous views and tall redwood trees. I have had the misfortune of hitting most of them as well. Has the unique distinction of being in two Counties, (States); a beautiful mature course.

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

  • The friendliness of the regions members, the worst being the weather. We don't water our fairways and last year's very hot and prolong weather scorched the fairway grass and now in winter the fairways are a but muddy in the rain. Fortunately ours aren't too bad but still we're suffering a bit.

  • What do you do for a living?

  • I teach people to drive. Patience of a Saint. Past retiring age but just love the job and as long as the phone keeps ringing with prospective clients I'll still keep teaching. Keeps me in golf, beer and good holidays money.

  • How’d you pick your user name?

  • Thomas Hardy wrote his books in this area and Wessex was a fictitious County in the south where I live. So it's called Wessex One to One School of Motoring. I specialise in Automatic Tuition and help the people who have been disabled with stroke etc to get back behind the wheel.
