It did amaze me when we played at your course the difference from when I played it many years ago. Your course has a great layout but they are just not keeping the conditions of the course up to the standards of the area. The greens were in desperate need of being cut a little shorter and needed to be rolled at least twice a week for awhile to make them puttable. You never knew where the ball would go.  Kind of reminded me of the Weeble toy song from the 70's. "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down"  Just like the putts! I thought I was just having a bad putting day but all of us were having issues. Then I played another course in NC two days later and was draining everything. 

I hope that you can express this to the owners. I know they would listen to you. Your like family to them. I hate to see a nice course give up and just collect  whatever greens fees they can and be content. It also blew my mind that the first time we tried to play it rained for 15 minutes right before we were going to tee off. Then the owner said he was going to close the course and it was now perfectly sunny out. He made enough money from the morning tournament that they didn't have to stay open. It wouldn't surprise me if they were milking it to get all they can without putting anything in to it before selling out to developers. 

Good luck with your decision but you know if you go somewhere else it will cost much more to play!

Due to deed restrictions etc it can not ever be anything than a golf course. On the one incident I went to the majority owner on that and the other guy got his butt chewed. Yeah I had a talk with the Majority owner this morning and told him some things. On the greens they are somewhat improving. Yep they do listen to me. After talking to him I am staying because like you have picked up on they do listen to me. And those guys do not actually own the course they have a long term lease

Pretty Good Day despite the final score of 90

Had a Hole In One...My 2nd one, the first coming 3 years ago.  I guess they are going to come to me late in life...ha

Details are the brand new PXG Gen 5 0311 XP   9 iron from 129, it was a back pin so unfortunately I did see it drop, but I saw it take a bounce and land right near the flag stick.  

Funny thing, the two ohter guys in the group, both hit it to about 6 feet and would have had closest to the pins, if not for this.  Both made birdie, so 3 of us played the hole in -4, pretty good!

I had two bad holes ruin what would have been my lowest round of the year, and technically throw in a third one, If Ihad just made bogey on each of those I would have shot an 82 which would hae tied my best ever, which was also the round with my first Hole in One.  Instead shot a somewhat disappointing 90 consideirn the way I hit it for 15 holes. 

 

Congratulations on the ace, Rob! It's a shame you didn't see it sink, but I bet it was a good feeling walking up and seeing it nestled in the bottom of the cup.

The wife and the kids have been up North in the UP this week(I am meeting them tonight) but with all the free time I have played 5 rounds in the last 6 days.

I think I have found my limit as the last 27 holes or so have been filled with tired and sore swings.  I typically practice a few times a week but never get to play this much.  I will say my putting his gotten significantly better in this short spurt off feel alone but with that comes lots of lazy swings.

I'd like to say 5 rounds in 6 days is too much but given the opportunity I would most certainly do it again.

In the Yoop huuh. I know about that from my trucking days plus I know some people from up there.

Congrats on the HIO----- One of our members at 72 yoa had his first last week and took the Year long HIO kitty for his men's group. We were talking at the wedding Saturday night and he was surprised that I had never had one

Tuesday I shot a 45/48:93 so so day, got tired on back nine. Today was different however, same course, different result. I shot a 46/41:87 with 4 GIRs in a row and Four Pars in a row! (#9-#12).

I am sure it is just as hot and humid in Florida as it is here. The heat and humidity will take it out of you. I hit balls on the range today and hit from the shade. I did do a Pedelyte before I went  and had water with me. Hit about 35 balls got loose so I quit. Retreated to the patio under one of the umbrellas and rested. Then chipped and putted for 30 minutes or so then said NUTS! I went home and inside I have remained watching the John Deere

Yeah. Exactly.  You shot what you shot.  Snd to be fair it’s pretty close to my 16 handicap so no real issue.  Just is always nice to shoot a bit lower through isn’t it.  No matter our level.

I’d say that’s a pretty safe assumption.  I know someone will copy and save that for later.  Ha

... It just amazes me how selfish some people are. You had a HIO 3 years ago and with soooooo many golfers suffering without one, you just grab a 2nd one like a thief in the night?!? I would add I think it is much harder to make make 2 birdies on the same hole because you have to make the putt, something you were evidently afraid to attempt with your avalanche of HIO's. 

Sounds like sour grapes to me.  Just get it over with and make one!!  🤣

BTW, my 3 aces seemed to come about 7 years apart... and I'm due!!
