I might have as I really hate playing in rain.  Sounds like you planned well for it with the extra gloves and towels 👍.

I ended up hitting with 3 microfiber towels wrapped on the grips over those holes, it worked well but they got soaked fast so they were only good for about a shot or 2 😂. I also stuck with driver 4 iron 8 iron and 52 on all those holes so after the rain stopped everything else was ready to go lol

It looks like frost on the fairway in your picture 😲.

I promise it was just water! Haha it was humid out there. Water was not drying off any surface. 
 

it did make it easy to clean clubs after shots.

I had probably one of the most fun tournaments I’ve ever played in today…..and that’s with absolute monsoon conditions for 6 holes.

played at one of the premier courses around in Pinehills country club in Plymouth, MA. Was put on by C&W services which is a facilities group and they pulled all the stops. Unlimited range balls, fantastic breakfast lunch and dinner, great prizes and open bar all day, incredible.

represented MGS well today

was worried about it being cancelled, was light rain when I got there, had a great range session and we got to our starting hole 17 @ 9am. The sky’s absolutely opened up as soon as we teed off. It downpoured for about 6 holes. I went through 6 gloves and 5 towels lol. My rain jacket soaked through, which I didn’t think could be done. But if anyone is looking for rain shoes I put the UA HOVR shoes to the test today…..buy them I have dry feet.

we pard 4 and birdied 2 of those 6 holes which was honestly extremely impressive IMO. My game was on and we had another guy similar handicap to me that is a really good player, other 2 drained some putts on those 6 for us that saved our butts.

well sky’s cleared and the sun poked out. We proceeded to go 8 under after the first 6 with a completely clean card, 1 eagle and 8 birds. The course drained surprisingly and dried up a bit, and we finished dry as you can see below.

irons and wedges were filthy today, tucked some close and put several wedges to tap in distance. No incredible drives but the short game worked for us. One frustrating part was I put closest to the pin hole to 3’ 2” which I found out would have won. There was a 12” written down on the card so I didn’t write it down, come to find out some moron wrote a porn stars name in……I didn’t catch the joke…..kid won it with a 4’ 6” ball……

all in all we came in second. Won 100$ and the course gave EVERYONE a free round good until next November for sticking out the rain! The group I played with was absolutely a blast, we drank, laughed and had a great day splashing the balls around.

Looks like it was actually a fun time (at least it was warm!). Rain golf can be fun as long as you're prepared for it.

Reminds me, right before I joined MGS, I played a scramble in late October in Minneapolis. Pouring rain, 45 degrees. Absolutely the dumbest thing I've ever done for golf!

Got lucky, we had a breeze right after it stopped raining that felt cold but it warmed up right after to 70s j still can’t believe we were actually dry at the end

I hyper-extended my right 4th finger playing in sloppy rain at McChord AFB (now JBLM).  Believe it was a 4i that slipped on the follow through.  Swelled up quick and I was pretty much done a few holes later.  Kept me up half the night and looked so bad in the wee hours of the morning, I headed to the ER.  X-ray showed a small crack in the bone and I was splinted for 3 weeks.  No love for soaking wet conditions and golf from me.  I find the game challenging enough when it's dry (or mostly so).

I dealt with the same issue for many years.  My wife and I could play all the golf we wanted on a 9-hole executive course: one par 5, 2 par 3's, 6 par 4's.  Fun layout built by one of the local pros, and he did most all of the daily work himself.  Annual fee was $900 for the both of us, including cart if we wanted.  The greens were small and stimped about 6-7, far below any other course in the area.  I didn't treat the course as a place to keep score, but rather a place to practice.  We had some fun rounds with the pro in one group of 6 or 7 or however many showed up!!  It didn't have any bunkers, so I never got to practice out of sand.  

When I retired, I told my wife I wanted to play at a full course with practice facility, so we moved to the most cost-effective course in our area.  However, it costs us almost $3000 a year to play a muni.  It's the price we have to live with to play a decent course in our area.  The good news is that playing here has helped my short game immensely, and I play sand shots reasonably well now... after lots of practice!!

Yea, unfortunately not many courses in my immediate area offer season passes. I talked with my wife about moving on/upgrading maybe in the next year or two. If the other courses weren't cart only, I'd have made the jump to the less expensive one. We've also looked at some of the lesser country clubs, but we're locked into a year long membership and neither of us care about the society aspects. I want to golf April through November. I did find one golf only club within half an hour, waiting to hear back from them.

Take the plunge. It's worth it if you find someone good. Get a pack of 4 lessons and spread them out over a few months. After your first one, you will probably play like crap because you are mixing old swing with new but eventually, you will pick up the right feel.

Played in the NM VGA State Championship this past Saturday at NMSU in Las Cruces and shot a 43/43-86 with 19/16-35 putts (3 3-putts, 4 1-putts), 2 doubles, 10 bogeys and 6 pars, 4 fairways and 7 greens. I felt like I was a little timid at times and definitely left some out there. I also didn’t seem to be hitting it as far as I usually do, so I had to adjust quickly. I wound up finishing 1st for my Flight, but full disclosure, there was only one other guy in my Flight. Next up is the VGA Regional in AZ at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes, which is a 36-hole tournament.

@Mtbryant01 and I have both used Neil Thompson. I did a few lessons with a guy who is no longer teaching under him. He used to teach at Oxmoor but RTJ execs cut all independent contractor (including teaching pros) Jan 1 2021. Dumb move on their part in my opinion. He's at Timberline, Heatherwood, and Ballantrae now.

I was sold on them because during my first lesson, as we talked about goals he said his philosophy is to not get you a perfect swing but a repeatable one because we can't/don't practice everyday. He said he could teach me to hit it further or work it both ways etc. but if we focus on ball striking and hit more greens, scores will go down.

Tuesday Exec 9 with the added attraction of. Sinkhole on the sister course with local Orlando TV channels losing their minds over it.

Anyway 2nd decent morning, hitting irons & hybrid well.  Course is short Driver not necessary.  Even had a little draw creeping back into ball flight, life is good.  Putting could be a little better but  not going to whine. 
Shot +3, 6 Pars & 3 Bogies.  I’m a happy Ole Fart!
