It appears that Plantation Palms plays a little harder than Pebble Creek, or are you less familiar with the course?   Scores should come down when you start playing it all the time.

Thanks KennyB….Well, it is 400 yards longer from the Senior Tees(gold) and 150 yards longer from the Super Senior Tees(Green).  I play Senior Tees Tuesday & Thursday then the Super Senior Tees on Saturday. The Ghin handicap is 2 strokes between Gold & Green plus 2 strokes between Pebble and Plantation Palms from the gold tees.  Add in familiarity and yes it is a bit harder.  I have played it on Tuesdays last year so I am getting familiar with it.  It will be my club starting August.

8:00 am Tee Time, humidity not bad , slight breeze, greens recently too dressed but rolling decent and quick.
Bad, stupid bogies 1st 2 holes with one ball that drowned itself because it didn’t like the drive!  After that woke up!!  Killin the Driver TSI2, irons great, putter still spotty with 1 Bird (missed 2 that were makeable).  Ended up +2, 38.  Can’t whine about that.

Had a conversation with group in front of us while waiting on Tee.  2 of the guys had brand new full sets of PXG!!  They said the clubs were great.  Got a chance to watch them Tee Off, ummm should have spent some money on lessons 1st.

... Yup, I think we all prefer the GOOD stupid bogies. 🤣 

... I play with some higher index Asian guys and 2 of them bought PXG. Said it was a complete waste of money and they shoulda used the $ for lessons. One sold his and is back in TaylorMade M4 irons. The other said it doesn't matter what irons he plays because he either hits it well or very poorly so he is keeping his. I get so sick of hearing that obnoxious loudmouth during every TV telecast, even LPGA events. And I am not talking about the Bob Parsons (everything I hear and read says he is a good guy) but his LOUD commercial persona that to me at least represents everything I dislike about modern golf from driving carts onto the fringe, playing music at a level the entire course can hear, drinking to excess, can't be b bothered to rapier divots or ball marks and playing at their own pass ... s-l-o-w.

I liked the irons quite a bit.  I wasn't particularly enamored with the Driver, fairway woods, or hybrids.  People raved about the Sugar Daddy wedges, but I didn't find them significantly superior to any other wedges that I've hit, but to be fair, I only hit them on the range and not on a green which would be a better indicator.  Never tried any of their putters.

I’m very curious about them.  I’ve never seen any LH in the wild.  
I think it’s like all others, “not for everyone”.   @Fozcylce is happy with his Driver.

I played like s**t tonight on league. I shot 49 for 9 holes. I don't want to use this as an excuse but, my head isn't in golf right now. I have to put my buddy of 14.5 years down on Friday. It's killing me.

So sorry to hear about your buddy. I just went through the same thing. He came into our life on Memorial Day 13 years ago and left us on Memorial Day.  I still look for him to greet me when I get home. It still stings.

I didn't "dislike" the driver....just didn't see it as any better than my current driver.

Home course still in s*** condition from all the rain last week. Last tune up before my first tournament. Hit the ball fine, chipping and putting saved me. Ready to rock.

Had my best 9 holes ever. Shot a 47. It included a 30 foot putt for par on the first hole. 451 yard par 5. The shot that keeps me coming back though was my shot from the right rough from 172 yards over a tree and 2 putted for par.

The shot that brings ya back.

2 bad holes today.  Took a double on a par 5 and a triple on a par 4 on the back 9.  Otherwise played decent golf ... 37/43 (80 adjusted to 79 for posting).  One birdie on the front.

The first of 3 vacation rounds yesterday at Foxfire - Red Course in NC. Heck of a deal for $28. The course was in pretty good shape I don't need it perfect, I just want greens that can hold a 5 iron or lower. The round started iffy. Bogeyed the second hole after hitting into the water, and I was trying to play it safe. Overall I hit 72% of greens and 64% of fairways. the course played 6300 yards. i don't need to play the longest tees. Final score was 74, with 2 birdies. 33 total putts. I've been happy that I have been consciously trying to hit a fade. As a result, I have had better chances at hitting greens, and my scores have started to go down.

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.
