I’m an 8 and would say I like courses that are in that 6700-6800 range too. It allows me to hit driver on most par 4s. Our league plays from the white tees which is only about 5700 yards and on the front 9 there are only 2 or 3 holes that I can really hit driver. Sad part is it doesn’t help my scoring much either because we’re hitting to dog-legs or forced layups so the second shot isn’t really any shorter.

Sometimes it's fun to go to those short courses. Leave the driver in the bag and work on iron play.

Oh you get your work hitting into those greens!  There’s 7 of 8 multitiered greens there, and the ones that aren’t are usually still pretty sloped and some tough shapes.

I am a 7 as well. My home course is 6615 from the tips. In Cleveland Ohio area, there are less than a dozen public courses that touch 7000 (one is supposedly 7400 but I never see the tees set that far back). I still don't move to the back tees until the weather breaks or I'm familiar with the course. I can get around just fine on 66-6800, but unless I'm feeling it those wayyy back tees feel like punishment.

Wrong tees are exactly why Bethpage Black is a 6+ hour round on a great day. Way too many guys decide to play it at 7400 yards and have no prayer before they put their shoes on. They usually figure out on 3 when they are hopping on a driver to get it to the front of the green on the par 3. I get asked all the time how often I play the Black with it in my backyard and the sad answer is maybe once a year. I don’t have the patience for it.

Yikes! I can imagine that would turn you away from the course.
Although I can see why people get pulled into that. I want to play a course in “Tour Conditions” from where they play.... ok maybe the normal tips instead of the tour tips... just to see what its like for them. I’d bet there’s a lot more thinking like that at such a prestigious tour location like Bathpage, Sawgrass, and Pebble.

Oh there is and you always have the ability to move up if you would like. 95% of the golfing public has zero shot in getting to 15 in two from the plaques and that would be with a career drive and 3 wood approach.

Nah forgot that. If I'm going to drop the cash and take the trip I'm going to enjoy myself and play the right tees

Please don't...Pick your club, line up the shot, address the ball...and then realize you forgot to put on your glove like you do after every hole.

I use irons covers and I am not afraid to admit it. Mine are different. They are clear, so it doesn't matter which one goes on which club. I really do not need that confusion in my life. I walk a lot and carry them and hate the sound of them clanking against each other. My 60 & 56 do not have covers, because everything around them does.

Well that is cool if that is what you want to do. Now one of my buds on WRX posted a shot of his clear covers one night. Some of the guys were calling them the Prophylactic covers. 2 reasons he did this--- One he had a beautiful set of Miura blades and he wanted to protect them rightfully so and the second one was to show them off. Since you are new I will explain myself to you I am the rat rod type I ran black primer Ratty Harleys long before they came to be somewhat popular and I have had my share of rat rods long before they became cool. On the other hand I am as laid back as there are and have no problem with someone spit and polish. In fact one of my dog fight partners uses iron covers on his call away irons

Please, please, please, don't take 6 practice swings, stand over the ball for 10 seconds, and top it 20 yards (or throw a dart to 6 feet). 

No problem if you top it 20 yards, just hit, learn, and hit again--while we're young.

Please don’t take 15 minutes and look from 6 angles while reading a putt then blow it 5 feet past the hole and do it again. 

YES!!! I played behind a group last month that one guy did that every hole like he was trying to win the masters. It was just killing me.

I’ll use iron headcovers if I choose. I still don’t get the hatred towards this.

You spend 1000+ on a set of clubs to ride in a cart with someone that jumps over bunkers and dents the crap out of them...

Yep.

Totally agree been using them since 1985 and my clubs from them look like brand new. But I did lose one last fall, was wearing out a little so it got loose and ripped, kept finding it for a few rounds and black duct taping it but it fell off anyway and lost it.

These definitely are required for Ping G700 and G70 and likely all black clubs.
