Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Are you handicapped into a bracket or is it luck of the draw who you play?

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread



Ballpark yardage on

Quote:
Me: Had no shot due to overhanging limbs and a tree trunk between me and the hole, I didn't even bother to get a distance. Played a closed 21* hybrid back in my stance and tried to swing a low hook under and around the trees. Ball came out whistling and glided like a laser, never getting more than 3 feet off the ground. It turned perfectly around the tree in front of me and ran through about 40 yards of fairway up onto the green tracking straight for the pin. Barely missed the hole and stopped 3 feet past. The ranger saw it and started clapping from his cart. Easily the best shot I've hit all year.

I'm in the championship flight, so we don't use handicaps. It is recommended that you be single digit to play in this bracket. There are 3 flights and a senior tournament. The other 2 flights are 10-19 handicaps and 20+.

The draw is random, no seeds.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Going to Sea Island for a week with family. For anyone that has been and played there I will likely play 2x. Which 2 to play between Seaside, Frederica and Ocean Forest (or any other)? Ocean Forest seems to be the consensus best down there but I am open to other thoughts.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Who,

We play from the back (black) tees. It is just a short little muni course here in the city. 6,000 yards from the back tees. It does feature 2 brutish par 5s, but the rest of the course is very short.

Here is a link to the scorecard: http://www.oobgolf.com/courses/scorecard.php?id=10149

This player was the least skilled I have faced. There are some really good players in the field. The guy who I lost to in the finals last year was a professional. He doesn't play anymore because he wasn't good enough to earn a living playing, but he gave up his amateur status after college and has played in many professional tournaments.

I probably would say I don't mind because I'm a little ***** but I hate when anyone in the group starts it without asking.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

after all the fees it is only a few dollars less then the normal rate. If I really want to go I guess that would work.

I have played the Palm and the Magnolia before ages ago. DOn't think it has changed much. Courses are nice but overproced because Disney. If you are on property and don't have a car go for it. If you have a car there are courses just as nice at half the price like Orange County National.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Big weekend coming up. Heading to Niagara Falls for our annual Niagara Open which I have captured 2 out of 3 so far. 15 of us getting drunk, playing sloppy golf and squeezing in some poker at the casino. Can't wait.

US or Canada side?

Which courses do you play? Average price/quality? I'm considering it for next year's golf trip.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Canadian side. This year we're doing grand Niagara (Reese jones) and hunters Pointe. Gn is costing us 85cdn +tax for golf, cart and range balls. Hp is 65+tax for golf, cart, range balls, pound of wings, 2 beers and 2 pizza slices (I don't know how my buddy got such a sick deal on that). We stay in the Ramada for 90ish a night each - 2 to a room.
We've also done battlefield legends in the past and pay around 80 after tax.
Both of the courses we're doing this year are great tests and are what is consider to be premium courses,especially grand Niagara.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Prices sound reasonable, our group tends to not do so well in hotels though (noise). How far from the falls is everything?

Doing 2 days in the US, stocking up on booze and coming back and doing 2 days in Canada could be an idea.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

The hotel is just off the strip. I think it's a 10 minute walk to the new casino. Hunters Pointe is in Welland so maybe 20 minutes away. Grand Niagara is maybe 15 away. The legends facility has two courses (battlefield is really good, but I've never played ushers Creek) and it's a little closer than the ones I just mentioned. Another option for a course is Whirlpool. Its a classic tree lined parkland course designed by Stanley Thompson - you don't get a chance to play his courses often.

Hey, I'm actually living about 5 min from all these courses.

Hunters pointe is a Lynx style course and really fun but hard.

Now Grand niagara, wow, words can't describe how beautiful this track is. Just incredible shape and staff is top notch with hot cart girls.

I do suggest Willow dell cause I love courses with 5 par 5's, been a while since I've played there though.

Driver starts out dead straight then slices right - just standard out-to-in path and/or open face or something different?
