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 ser

Greetings from icy Finland! I jumped the gun in the Shafts board before introducing myself. But better do it later than not at all, right? 😉  My love affair with the game began in 2013, when

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 wint

Hi all, as a new member from Tasmania Australia this looks like a good place for me to start.
1. I have been playing golf this time for approx. 8 months and am currently playing off 25 (24.1, look out 24!). I have come back to golf after a 24 year lay off. Really unsure why I stopped playing now, I think family issues, work and life just got too busy. Anyway back then I played in the handicap range of 11 to 14 and at a youngish 54 I have my sights set on trying to get back down below 18 at least.
2. What do I love about golf, so many things, it is just such a challenge. The feeling when you hit a shot exactly as you pictured it (no where as often as I would like ) is just unmatched to my mind.Of course some days I absolutely loathe golf but now that I have started playing again I won't be stopping again.
3. I am joining up with MyGolfSpy as I have been extremely impressed with the content and reviews that they produce. Unbiased advice is extremely hard to find and should be valued highly. I don't know any other members at this point but hopefully I will make a few new friends.
4. As I said at the beginning I am from Tasmania, I live at Somerset on the north west coast and at Queenstown on the west coast (home and work). My home course is Seabrook Golf Club at Wynyard. It is presently a quite challenging 16 hole lay out, we replay 10 & 9 as 17 & 18. I am also a member of the 9 hole Queenstown Golf Club which unfortunately, whilst a nice little layout, is not in very good condition due to a severe lack of members.
5. I think that the best thing about golf in my area is the great variety of good courses, the very welcoming members and the fact that we have a good enough climate to play year round. There is also enough variability in our weather and seasons to change the way courses play so it is not the same day in day out. Possibly the worst thing I think is that most clubs are struggling for members so in some cases this can really badly affect the courses.
6. I am an electrician at a copper mine. I work shift work on a 7 on 7 off roster which gives me lots of time with family and a good amount of time for golf.
7. I use my own name as my user name. Don't think I need to make one up, I'd probably forget what it was anyway!
Hope this is okay and I am looking forward to meeting many fellow golfers. Cheers. 

 
 
 



Welcome to the forum from the US!

My daughter lives in Sanford just outside of Hobart. When we were there a couple of years ago she treated us to a round at Barnboogle. Also played courses in the south of Tasmania. You live in an awesome area.

  1. Started playing golf last summer, best round so far about 109. Been training on a simulator and having a couple of lessons with a pro. Will be playing my first round for the season tomorrow and hope to shoot under 100 🙂

  2. The challenge and playing with friends and fellow golfers.

  3. Been checking equipment reviews.

  4. I'm from Norway and my home course is Meland

  5. Living in western  Norway we tend to get wet...

  6. I'm a salesman and technical manager for a company that sells lubricants and maintenance products.

  7. My anatomy professor told us that it was the least significant muscle in the body so we could just forget it when we had learned it. Naturally, it stuck.

  1. I've been playing golf for 26 years and was a 13hc. (Fractured my back 2 years ago and havent played a round since. I am learning left handed to relieve pressure on my back, should be fun.)

  2. I love golf. I love talking about it, llaying it, the equipment, the laughs, the competition...everything.

  3. I've been following the toutube and IG for awhile. Just found out about this forum due to a contest.

  4.  From Calgary, Ab, Canada and my home course is Applecreek.

  5. The best thing is there are some great mountain courses nearby. What stinks is the cost and that we have winter here.

  6.   Salesdog.

  7.  I'm relearning golf left handed after 26 years as a righty.

Hey everyone, my name is Caleb. I just started playing golf last July. Well I had played before, but had never taken it seriously until last July I should say. I’m currently a 16 handicap. I’m in the US Military and stationed in Pisa, Italy. Just joined a local golf club about a week ago. My weakest club is my driver, unfortunately. Just can’t stay consistent with it. Anyway, don’t want to bore you all to death. If anyone lives close by and wants to go out and play just hit me up.

I started playing about 20 years ago but didn't take the game seriously until 3-4 years ago. I don't maintain an official handicap but shoot in the mid-low eighties most of the time

The quiet meditation, the camaraderie, the challenge and the occasional "perfect shot". These are some of my favourite things... about golf.

Can't really say what brings me here. Been looking at the most wanted stuff and some other MGS articles for a while, though.

I'm from France, playing around Grenoble, in the Alps?

Best thing about golf around here is that we have some very very "hilly courses" (being in the mountains and and all), the worse thing is that winter play is not that easy, being troubled by many snow falls, storms and similar bad weather associated with mountains.

I'm a university professor in my non golfing life.

My forum handle relates to my name, loosely.

Hi, my name is Liam Duncan and I am 19 years old from Scotland. I play for New Mexico Junior College golf team.

I’ve been playing golf now since the age of 4. I have a handicap of 0.9 but in America I don’t use my handicap. Over here my average score has been 73 through my two semesters as a student athlete.

I have joined MyGolfSpy because I’m always interested in new tech and gear in golf and every time I search the new stuff up MyGolfSpy always has reviews on it so I used this website a lot.

I am from Kirkcaldy, Scotland and I play at Dunnikier Park Golf Club and Leven Links GC which is around 35mins from St Andrews.

The worst thing about golf in my region is that the weather isn’t great for half the year so I tend to stick to range golf from October through to March. But the best thing is I’m half an hour away from the Home of Golf and there are so many golf course in my area so I never get bored

I am currently studying at NMJC for my Associate of Arts degree and also play for the College Golf team on a scholarship.
