Just curious.  Are you playing better, worse, or about the same?  We can't play here in WA, but the last week we were open I walked while my wife rode and I felt less distracted.  Seems like I could focus a little better, and it was a little less social golf.

I've only played one round (and we skipped 3 holes) with my buddy since making the decision, so can't really say one way or the other.  However, prior to making this choice, I have been hitting the ball really solid.

Allie and I played 9 this evening on a local upscale par 3 (attached to an upscale daily fee).  She hit a nice one on this hole, well inside of me, and made the putt for birdie.  She was ornery all da

I agree with you, that I enjoy walking more than riding.  But it's a combination of things here, see my post above about our course.  Then couple that with I'm 60 and have had both knees replaced and

Turkeyfoot is always in great shape and it's easy to find deals. Don't think I ever paid more than $30.

Wow. I've never paid less than $45... usually $48 to $55 on weekends with a cart . Like I said, I haven't played there in at least 5 years. Maybe things are different now.

If you have ever seen the movie The Legend Of Bagger Vance the old man at the first that is me in a nutshell and plus if you have a practiced eye like I do you will see he is hitting a persimmon butterfly sole plate Macgregor driver

I have seen it .... multiple times 🙂  Ahh the beauty of Persimmon!  Remember the days 

I had a set of Hogan Persimmon woods back in high school.  Talk about beautiful.  I used to polish the heads after I played.  😉    I think in my stupid youth I sold them eventually when the first metal woods came out.  Dumb a**!

Yea! We are playing here. Riding in your own cart. The cups are upside down and they encourage that if it’s within 5 feet, you pick it up and count the stroke or take the gimme. No touchy of the flag stick. They have taken up all the rakes and water jugs on the course. And most importantly, it’s closed to the public, members only. 99% of the members here live on site being that it’s a community. So it works out perfectly.

My wife and I had a tee time yesterday afternoon, playing the front 9, so I ran out in the morning morning and played the back. Played a lot better than the previous day even though the speed on the greens is difficult to judge. I did sink this short putt for a bird though, it brought a smile to my face.

Well they redid some things at my course after the latest edict from our Gov came out this morning All the practice areas are closed and we can not congregate anywhere even in the parking lot. The Dog Fight is on for Saturday with individual carts etc. So after this morning I can no longer do my morning thing since I retired. Sit on the corner of the patio smoking my cigar and drinking coffee watching the sun come up over #9 and #10.

Easy!  Get in your single cart with your cigar and thermos/Yeti; drive over by the patio and watch the sun come up over #9 and #10.  Hope you took everyone to the cleaners!!

Yes, if I can find courses that are open.  One person per cart, no rakes in bunkers, cup restrictions so ball does not go down.  Also use wipes on cart steering wheel and sand bottles.

Actually that is exactly what I did went out under the trees a ways off. We ended up not playing a shootout per say. My whole team showed up and 2 other guys joined us so we played a 6 some $10 round robin. Lot of fun and the comp was tough. I made a birdie putt on the last hole to break even. They did open our putting green and range back up though but as our GM put it we can not sit down to rest on the patio. BUT----- There must be 500 people congregated in Wal Mart just up the street elbow to elbow---

Supposedly there are people and I know who they work for in the golf business and it is all political that are going around shooting video at course violations and turning courses in. Some of the members and myself have decided if we spot one their phone will be confiscated and destroyed and their butt thoroughly kicked. LOL owners and management do not want to know ( sic). But some of the BS going on here is unreal

Last night one of my buddies called and let me know that beautiful Lake Jonesco was reopening with Covid 19 restrictions in place.  There is no admittance to the club house, you pay through a new pay window to the left of the entrance,  one person per cart and the holes are restricted so the ball does not fully drop in.  Flags are left in the holes for putting.   We had our Friday skins game this morning with 7 players, everyone was happy to be out and see everyone after the 3 week lay-off.  It was great to be back on the course.

Played today;  typical restrictions that most of us are seeing.  I did see something new today;  all the flags had tag out tags attached.

I'm playing at the usual beginning of the season skill level. Not good... not terrible. April in Ohio is hit and miss weather wise. I hope the Coronavirus doesn't put a damper on things. if all goes well.... I should be back in form by mid June.

That's not bad at all. I play Turkeyfoot & Rain Tree a lot. Been to a few places in Canton. I've played the Legends years ago. What are the nice courses around Massillon?
