    You’re suggesting for him to bail on the trip over the par 3 course?

    And I get yours. A cap to a great day and drinking, for sure. But as a course by itself, play one of the others on property.

    I do tend to agree that a good par 3 course is nice for a long golf trip. Stick it as the second round of a long day and make sure everyone gets good and fucked up.

    We play it every year & probably move more money during that than any other part of the trip. Nothing like your entire group seeing where you are on every green & throwing money shouts on each putt

    The Cradle and Thistle Du was an awesome part of the pinehurst experience for me personally. It was a nice break from the ass-kicking I got on #2.

    I have no clue how they are but I was in DFW airport and was killing time in Johnston & Murphy. They had the lightest golf shoes I’ve ever felt. It was like I was holding a Kleenex.

    On another topic, I’ve decided I’m not playing golf anymore if it’s cart path only and wet. I just can’t get over my mental block.

    Do they let you use a push cart and walk? It’s my preferred way to play now.

    Yes but I’m old with a bad back, knee, and foot issues so that isn’t an option right now.

    My gut says this is not going to "appeal to a new audience" and will flame out quickly. Golf is boring to people who don't play it.

    Semi ruse. I Joined the simulator club g fairways that is opening up out west.

    I don’t think I’ve claimed to have joined a club before though. I inquired at players a few years ago and just got the form letter, not accepting new members. Took lessons at players around the time. Take tune-ups at champions now.

    Randomly stumbled on the idea that I can join the auburn country club as a distance memeber for cheap to see if I can use that to get on private courses when I travel.

    That's over an hour away. Just join Ashland CC if you're looking for a cheap private course. Better yet, I think I've mentioned this to you before too, but I'm fairly certain you can still get membership at the Field Club for no initiation and just a flat monthly fee.

    In any case, I wouldn't join any private course if the major reason in doing so is to have a hook up for other private courses. It doesn't really work that way. Jmo.

    Haha, auburn is 230 for a distance member so figured it was a drop in the bucket to see if it worked. When I checked into field club their website mentioned an initiation fee, but I never looked further into it. I’m just all over the place.

    Been needing a new 5 wood for years but couldn’t justify spending the money on a club I might use twice in 10 rounds. Got an email from my company to use our “company bucks” for Christmas gifts. Completely forgot about my employer giving us “bucks” to shop with on their website with their corporate partners. Used them to buy a new callaway rogue 5 wood. I’ll just have to pay to get a new stiff shaft put on once I get it so merry Christmas to me.

    I love how it's golf twitter that would get me in trouble/weird looks on the train.

    Guess who's next up on the timeline and I don't even follow her

    If you start developing foot pains like Tiger, look into oofos footwear and stop being a baby.

    Played Torrey with some buddies and got absolutely bamboozled by the check in guy:

    “First time playing here?”

    “Yea, we’re excited… we’ll need two carts”

    “carts? Most people actually walk the course their first time”

    “Yea, ok, let’s do it!”

    it was fucking miserable and they very clearly just didn’t have enough carts for everyone.

    That’s a tough course and it was wet, people have no shame.
