The 279 for a single full golf is all inclusive - range, bag storage, etc., etc., etc.  Everything except cart fees.  They also have one that is 219 per month and then you pay anything else al la carte - I think that I will do that and just add the range for $30 a month

It's a very walkable course and there's no walking fee after noon for members.

That price is amazing. And "very walkable"!! Someday I need to get out of the Metro NY area..........

It's a very walkable course and there's no walking fee after noon for members.  It's less than half the cost of my current club and the course is in better shape (my current club is a Fazio course, it's a stronger, better course but they have some significant issues to address starting with 6 or 7 fairways.)  It also has a better array of games for my work schedule - I'd say that Bayou, my current club, is far better for a really strong player or for a retiree who lives in the area - as much as I've enjoyed my time there it is not a good fit for me.  

Sweet. I hope I can play a round with you there one day.

Sorry for the late response, life happens at times.

I have not made it back to the course where the watch flaked out but I did play 9 at another course this afternoon.  Result?  No drama.  Expected behavior all the way around.  Maybe it was loaded course and not the watch.

And played another round today without any drama.  The course I was playing when it flaked out must have been corrupted cause all seems good now 👍

After today’s round I checked my stats and surprised by one of the strokes gained stats.  Putting.

I had 33 putts in the round but the SG ranking shows a -9+ when compared to a 10hcp.  Does that sound right?  33 putts will put me at a 9 shot deficit against a 10?  Maybe I just don’t understand SG well enough.

So strokes gained is a bit different than just say a 10 handicap averages 36 putts so if you make 33 putts you gained 3 strokes. 
 

the easiest example is that say for an 8 foot putt you make them 50% of the time put another way on average it takes you 1.5 putts to hole out from 8 feet on the green. So if you make and 8 footer you holed out in one shot which is 0.5 better than average so they say you gained 0.5 shots on that putt. Conversely if you miss from 8 feet you took 2 shots not 1.5 so you lost 0.5 shots on that hole. 
 

So then you do this on every shot through out the round seeing how many shots it should take from wherever you are and then subtracting the number of shots expected to hole out from the new position. So in an example that can make you me SG gained putting make some sense. Say a 10 handicap averages 1.5 shots on 7 foot putts and you hit to 7 feet on every hole and two putts on each hole you lost half a shot on each hole putting which will total to losing 9 shots putting for the round. 
 

So as it relates to shot scope make sure your putting distances are accurate otherwise this can really mess with your stats if they are too long or too short. Hope that helps.

I’m using manual entry for putting so does that mean I will never be able to rely on SG for putting?  I could be wrong but with manual entry the distance is not being recorded.

Not certain about that.

My understanding is that when you click the 1 button to record the putt - standing over the ball - that SS marks the GPS position and then when you click the pin location - when standing over the hole - SS also marks that GPS position and will then compute all the putt distances from the GPS locations.

So it should be accurate - at least as accurate as the GPS system allows. So definitely should check in editing that the distances look OK to you. Of course that requires a very good memory or jotting down distances to refresh your memory. That accuracy is not critical to me - so I just try to remember exceptional putts and check them during edit. As luck would have it - there are usually not a lot of them.

Requiring close accuracy can get quite time consuming - unless you just trust SS and GPS. I am hoping that errors if they occur, will even out over the season since I play a lot of rounds.

I use manual putt mode as well and as @Larryw mentions it’s only as accurate as the GPS which can be off on free lined courses and such so I always double check the distances when I can. Just takes some editing to make the data accurate and usable.

@ejgaudetteand @Larryw - thanks for the replies.  They are going to drive me back to the docs, I need to read up on manual inputs for putting.  I have been under the impression that if I use the top right button to count the number of putts and then the bottom right button for recording that selection, GPS was not being used.

Methinks I need to get a little more educated 🤔

@Golfspy_CG2 since we have an ongoing 'official test' perhaps you could encourage your contact at SS to participate in this forum? It would only benefit their business.

This is correct, I've used manual putting since i started using SS because my putter had a weight in the grip and no clean way to attach a tag. 

Whenever you hit the count putt button it flags that GPS location as where you hit it from. 

Don't Putt out then hit the button "2 times" to say you hit it twice, that will give you bad data. I make hitting the "putt" button part of my marking the ball routine. I also make sure I've been in the right spot for a few seconds before hitting it to give the unit time to catch up and give it a good mark.

Was a little bummed out to discover that if I click "pick up" rather than inputting my number of putts, it won't track any of the shots from a hole.

Used manual putt mode for the first time today - I like it!

As mentioned in an earlier post, just make it a part of your pre-putt routine to hold the watch skyward for a second and press the "+" button (V3). I think that little pause is actually helpful for me as I too often have a tendency to rush my shots....

And when I looked at my round later (I do my post-round editing on my laptop, not on my phone) pretty much all the putt, and pin, locations looked spot on.

For you SS editing experts: I noticed for the first time that there was a "!" in red on one of the holes in the place of a green checkmark or a red pencil (for the hole you're editing). This is the first time I've noticed it - but then my eyes aren't great and I do my editing on my iPhone. Any thoughts?

Also I inadvertently added an extra club on one of the holes - how do I delete that club?

I couldn't find answers to either one of the questions on the instructional videos or SS instructions.

It didn't tag the club you used to tee off, so it defaults to "Driver" and then marks that shot with the "!". If you actually did use a driver on that hole then you don't need to change anything, that club will be saved when you;re done editing and click "Save/Exit".

FYI, I mentioned earlier but I always do post-round editing on my desktop/laptop .. my old eyes and clumsy fingers just cannot do it effectively on a smartphone screen..!

Thanks - I'll be on the lookout for '!" in future edits. BTW I did find how to delete clubs: 

To delete a shot follow the instructions below:

1) Select the shot by tapping on the shot label.

2) Tap on the more options (three dots at the right side of the shot dashboard) and tap where it says ‘Delete Shot’.

3) A pop up will then show with the options to ‘Cancel’ or ‘Delete’, tap the ‘Delete’ option.

To add the the exclamation conversation, it will give you an exclamation if it ever thinks it missed a shot. So if you play a shot from the fairway and it didn't catch your drive it will flag it.

But also if it wants to verify something out of the ordinary. I. E. You make a 70' putt it will flag that too. Or if it doesn't think you really hit your 7i 305y to reach the green in 2 on that par 5.
