Hobby outside of golf


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I love the game of golf and have been an avid golfer for about 6 years now. However if I am not at the course, watching or reading about golf I am all about my truck. I love trucks and mostly lifted Diesel trucks. I have already had two lifted trucks which have both been chevys and I am on my thrid chevy now. If my money doesn't go towards my truck then it goes to golf and then maybe the girlfriend, I kinda feel bad for her but heck my clubs and truck are not going anywhere.

 

Just curious if any of you guys out there have smoething else like a hobby/obsession that takes up your time that isn't golf?

Great to see all these different hobbies. I’m envious of all the different abilities you guys have. Apart from golf I like to play guitar and build things, which naturally lead me to building guitar

I build snowboards. Myself and a friend own a brand Blak Sheep.  Here are a few of them. There, I made it a solid month+ without bringing it up, but you asked!! Its usually the other way a

I played bagpipes for 7 years. A newborn and some house projects became priority so my free time fell to either boating on the lake or golf. I love everything about the pipe band and the tradition an

I would say Poker and Volleyball! My two favorite, outside of golf, things to do!

Probably doing stuff with my two kids. Not really a hobby, but golf is a real time consumer for me. Living in California, I cam play year round.

If we had winter I would probably figure out something though. I guess going to the gym is kind of a hobby.

I coach basketball, which I'd do even if I wasn't paid, so I'll call it a hobby. I spend lots of time with my new dog and with my wife. And of course, building stuff like this:

 

 

You build any golf ball displays, I would love a nice cabinet.

I love movies and used to make it a regular thing to catch a new one every week. Pretty much the same with going to different kinds of concerts and collecting music on CDs.

 

Now playing with my 3 1/2 year old daughter is pretty much my hobby when I don't play or practice golf.

I love trucks.. I just bought a new Tack with plans to lift eventually, but it seems I always pick expensive hobbies... Here is mine... I haven't been off road with it yet, but when I had my Sonoma Zr2, I went to Paragon a couple times and had some fun... I miss the mud and rocks, and with there were some legal places to wheel closer that 5 hours away...

Don't tell me you get that nice truck dirty... :unsure:

My brother and I have done the Rubicon trail here in Nor Cal a couple of times. It is more his hobby, but I had way more fun than expected. Now he has made the transition to sand cars and quads. I feel better about the $$$ I spend on golf when I look at his hobby costs.

yea... it's a truck... If I wanted something to keep on the streets I would have bought a car... It's kinda funny, the couple times I have come home COVERED in mud my wife was pissed and complaining about scratches...

 

I've got one big scratch from a tree branch and that doesn't bother me at all, but a tiny door ding from the parking lot angers me to no end... kinda ironic...

Outside of golf, it's family, church and TaeKwonDo (that my whole family does).

 

 

Guess I should add goofing off on the computer, LOL.

 

Ok...edited to add: college football, and college sports in general.

That's because you earned the tree scratch. The door ding is just some moron not paying attention.

When I am not on the golf course I am normally either playing softball or volunteering my time to coach baseball. I know this summer I will be occupied coach a 13 year old baseball team in my area. Coaching takes up some time, but it's worth it to spend time with those kids and coach the game I grew up playing.

My true passion is my Daughter. Before she came into my life, I was on the golf course 6-7 days a week. Now I'll be lucky to get out 6-7 times a year. And the great thing is I don't really miss it all that much. (I just have to keep telling myself that.)

My first hobby started with my old '96 chevy s10 with a small lift and some 33s but I dont have any pictures. Then came my '05 Silverado with a 4" lift and 33s. Never took it offroad but still loved it lifted. Now I have an '08 Silverado that will be lifted one day but like a lot of people out there I dont have 4-6k to just drop into my truck right now.

What's left after golf?

How about half-assed philosophy?

That doesn't take too much effort.

You can do it stretched out on your recliner.

So here goes:

 

The universe is merely the random confluence of sub-atomic particles moving in the vacuum of infinite space.

Forward infinity is easy to understand.
It's just more of the same forever.

Backwards infinity is impossible to understand.

An original wellspring?
But what was before that?
And even before that?

Fortunately, it doesn't matter.
I'm 72.

Relatively soon, my sub-atomic components will metamorphosize to a form that doesn't sustain thought,
and at that time, my short run will have been completed,
the extent or lack of its significance to be pondered by entities whose own short runs will soon be over as well.

And so it goes.
Forward infinity? Understandable but hardly compelling.
Backward infinity? Unfathomable but still hardly compelling.

 

That's all that I've got for now.

Why don't you give it a try?

What could be a simpler subject than the meaning of life?

Unless we're sure that it's golf, of course.
