My local course just announced what a season pass (full 7 day play) wold be and its only going to be 800, which this year at 50 for a weekend round I only need to play 16 times to make it worth it. I will be putting my request in with the wife shortly.

Wow, that is a heck of a deal! After tax our course is $2000 for a single, full membership. But it does include multiple member only events/scrambles, league dues for either Men's league or a 2 man scramble league (which I participated in this year and will next year), and eight free 9 hole passes that my wife will use. We actually just bought a home on the course and will be moving at the end of November, so to say I am excited is an understatement!

Yeah the course is smaller and just got bought so I think they are trying to get people to join, plus the conditions are not the best, just ok and sometimes have some solid bare patches. The plan is to do some work on it though so I am guessing this will go up in future years, but I'll take advantage while I can.

Well gents, I will be back on the course for another quick 9 at 4pm today. Update to follow. Going to aim to beat yesterday's 49, even if it's by one stroke!

Rained out before we could finish. Nasty storm blew in as we were 4 holes in and my 5 year old got cold so we called it. Through 5 holes, I was two strokes ahead of my pace from yesterday, so it was looking promising. Poor off the tee box but approach shots were solid and putts were rolling well. Getting cold in Wisconsin until the end of next week where we will get another shot if 60 degree weather Thursday and Friday. Hoping to get out both days!

I wanted to slit my wrists yesterday, shot probably triple digits but stopped keeping score because it was bringing me down.

... The Golf Gods giveth and taketh away. Fast fairways but horrible greens. Right now is the worst time to be playing in Phoenix. Many courses are closed for over seeding and others are already pre-conditioning the course for over seeding. Fairways are scalped tight and we get a ton of roll. Greens are ignored since they will be re-doing them in less than a week. As many here know an actual 300yd drive is quite a feat and I can't count the times on the course when someone claimed a 300 yd drive or longer only to find out it was actually 20-30yds short. On the fairway pictured I made a great swing, center contact, nice high draw with plenty of roll and easily a 300yd drive. 💪  We laser'ed the flag and calculated my drive to be ... 298. 🤪  

... Played well after a couple weeks of mediocre driving and ball striking and I could have gone much lower but the greens were abominations and I just couldn't make a putt. Not complaining because most courses are closed so we are lucky to even have a course to play. And it is $22 to walk at twilite. This city course is a par 70 and with one bogie and 3 birdies I shot a 68. Two birdies were inside a foot and the third was 8 feet and somehow found the hole. 5 other putts inside 10 feet bounced around without coming close. Weather was ideal and pards are good dudes so again, no complaints.

Yup, I asked the doc if they ever had tours of the hospital surgery departments so we could see the robots and yes they do!  I’m on the list for next tour.

Yup, I get a bit geeked up over equipment like that.  I guess spending 45 years in manufacturing will do that to you.

I paid $700 this year, I expect it to go to $800 next year. Still a great deal. But yes, there are bare spots and some spotty conditions throughout the year. Still wouldn't change a thing! Golf is golf and we need more courses that are accessible to everyone.

I totally agree, I will take it, does not both me. Its the closest to my house and its still golf. I am actually concerned about the course and its accessibility long term. They tighten up on the dress code, and tee times when I used to be able to sneak out a few minutes before the first tee time no problem. The other course they own is Owls Nest which is a resort style course that costs a lot more, is more buttoned up shall we say and I just hope that this course does not turn that way too much. There are not too many courses and if this places gets too pricey I will be playing a lot less. So thinking take advantage this year and maybe the year after and hope things don't change too much.

That green looks like a roller coaster.

im a big drive guy in my circle of old farts, and to get to 300, you need a few things to happen. First a true masher, then a downhill, or a hard and dry. Or, be young with a sweet swing… a good day with the driver and I avg 257. And that will include a few true bombs.

pros average another 50 yards… goodness!
