There's just something about playing on brown grass. Of course I hadn't ever thought about the differences in certain regions until recently. I saw a post by Pete Pappas on Twitter and the grass in Ohio is already green. This is what we get..20190106_112736-01.jpeg.2e9ed5b7c1ff4033c7a2f93c4b04282a.jpeg

I get exited to play and when I turn into the course I see the brown grass it just gets me a little depressed. Its also a little tough to play off of. Everything in the fairway is a tight lie.

The rough is a different type of grass than the fairway. The rough stays green all year. The fairways go dormant after first frost and then start to turn green again after there are no more frost mornings. Should start turning green in about two to three weeks. The greens are a different grass as well.  They are green all year.

I love playing on dormant bermuda; better than when it's green actually.  Loved River Islands east of Knoxville.

Played there a lot. About 10 minutes from where I work.  It had its ups and downs over the past 5 years or so. I think it sold twice in that time frame. Now its called Island Pointe Golf Club.

It was the first place that I played with dormant bermuda.  The turf in the fairway was like hitting off a bristle brush; the ball sat up so nice.  Good for a beginner 20 some years ago!!

I think I am headed back this year, maybe next, and it's on my list to play again.  Love the out and back layout.

Today was a cold (50’s) kinda day. A bogey kinda day, except for my one Birdie on the Par 5 #8 hole. As it was backed up at 8:00 this morning, we jumped and played the back nine first. I ended up with a 43/46:89.

I don’t like Bermuda brown or green. So I live in FL, go figure!

A few days late but on Wednesday I got out and shot a best ever score of 85! Didn't really do anything incredible, just played pretty solid golf and was able to scramble when I did get in trouble. No birdies, but only one triple, two doubles, and a bunch of pars and bogeys. Putting is normally my strongest part but had been miserable recently (one round with three 4-putts) but felt good again. Chipping was solid and left myself with some short ones which led to 5 holes with 1 putt or less and 31 total putts for the round. Previous best was 87 and going to par 5 18th at 79 really wanted to get 85. Don't think I hit a shot more than 100 yards on that hole but got up and down for bogey. Now I just need to get in enough work with driver so I can hit that off the tee instead of 3-wood every time!


Good for you!

Played first round of the season yesterday .. shot 95, I had 7 lip out putts so could of scored better but that is how it goes sometimes ...  up and down day had the driver working and mess up a chip or mess up a shot and then chip it next to the hole couldn't get all my clubs on the same page.

Here are just two of the reasons I don’t walk the course much. I wonder if those electric trolleys can handle these? There are about 7 holes that have dramatic elevation changes. There are no flat holes everything has an elevation change up or down and some holes have both and a few have three changes. 

Not sure about all electric ones but the MGI Zip Navigator (mine has a 24V battery) unquestionably can! Plenty of torque and power, and very stable, too. Try one 😉

... I sometimes hang onto my ZIP handle going up a hill so it can drag me up with it late in rounds. 🤪

More good news to report...

Got in the second 9-hole round of this season on an incredible Spring-like day - so, yeah, *everyone* was out and the round was kinda slow .. our start time was pushed back like 20 minutes - but I was hitting the ball pretty well so it was all good!

Two firsts for me:
1. missed a green long on the fly
(8i and GPS watch said 154 to back edge .. slightly downhill and downwind);
2. drove a green
(4W from just over 200 and ball rolled onto the front).

Also hit or nearly hit most other greens; iron and wedge play are really starting to show good improvement.

Of course, all this wonderfulness had to be counter-balanced by something 😉 - had trouble matching up line + speed while putting... Felt like most of my strokes made were on my intended line but burned a bunch of edges; had one total mis-read on a birdie chance where the ball rolled in the total opposite direction when it got near the cup (made the par save .. whew!). 3-putted a few times, too - which I kinda "expect" on this course with its very sloped and contoured (aka treacherous, deceiving, conniving) greens. But offset that with a few decent lag putts up and over some of those maniacal slopes 🙂 

Oh, PS:
My lovely wife / golfing partner .. who claims she's not competitive yet beat me soundly in our on-going putting contest = fewer putts per round .. won the right to buy happy hour! 😊🍺🍷

Two questions

What course did you play?

How much does the  MGI Zip Navigator weigh and is it easy getting out of the trunk of a car.

Thanks, no worries about jumping in. That's what we're all about.

Its not as heavy as I thought it would be with the battery. I guy at my club had an older competitor model and it took two people to get it out of the trunk. It used a car type battery. Technology, got to love it. Still pretty pricey at roughly $1500 though. I would also need the down hill automatic braking feature. I think i could pick up a good used club car for a few hundred more.
