    My xander take is a bit light but he just seems kinda meh but the broadcast was pumping him up as the funny fry guy so I’ll give him a pass. JT is Spaulding Schmales and a bigot. I don’t know how Spieth comes off so normal being his “par day”. Cantlay has always sucked and thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room plus his pants are terrible. Kisner is fine for a redneck but way too barstool adjacent.

    Before I moved to a mallet it’d putt it left handed and make em 95% of the time which made me even more mad if not given

    Club. Especially if it comes with other benefits and a range you can use at will.

    That’s what I was thinking. Unlimited range and great practice facility. Looking to start working with my girls so it will be a great place for them.

    I’ve only been to the club my in-laws are a part of, but it makes me envious every time. Can go to the range anytime until like 6pm, access to the bar/restaurant, tennis/pickle ball court, pool, exercise room, etc.

    Clubs have gotten way too expensive around me. It’s like $150k initiation to join the one down the street. I put in a SkyTrak at home and play all the public courses with a group of guys. And I don’t feel bad splurging on golf trips. So really depends how many thousands you’re talking about.

    Tough to put a value on not having to deal with public course jackassery (it's probably not $150k, to be fair). Clubs have their own problem people to be sure, but it's so much easier to avoid/address in a club structure.

    What did the skytrak system run that you got run. Got any pics of the finished product? I'm a pretty handy guy and was thinking about putting together a diy Sim build.

    I bought a basic skytrak package from Rain or Shine Golf. It came with a Skytrak, mat, and net, and then I run it through my iPad. I think it was around $3500 or so for a basic setup. Obviously can get much more expensive if you want to go with an impact screen and projector setup. I think I posted pics in here years ago when I set it up, so I'll see if I can track them down.

    The area I live in has 5 public courses and nothing private. I enjoy playing most of them with my friends.

    I joined a small private club as an out of town member about 50 mins from my house. Great practice area and amenities. Pace of play is strictly enforced and I can play 18 solo in the afternoons in just over two hours.

    The day that made me join was after playing one of the local public courses with my 5 year old and we got hit into twice. One ball bounced through the cart and almost hit him in the face. I was done after that. Now I will take him and he can fart around the practice area all he wants, hit a million range balls, and if I play he’s not sitting in the cart for 4 hours. It’s not really a perk that I thought about when joining.

    Enjoy. I worked at waverly when I was at MSU. Loved that place. It was so great to get off at the end of the day and get a round in for free. There’s a short dogleg right that I lost a lot of balls on trying to hit over the trees to get it on the green. I think I only made it once. Also, came super close to an albatross on 9. Rolled the second shot right up to the hole. One more roll and it would have went in.

    It’s no where near that. Money is reasonable. My only hesitation is I only get to play 2-3 times a month. Just not sure if I want to spend the money when I don’t get to play as much as I want. Probably will pull the trigger so I can have a nice place to start working with my kids and take clients.

    Plus an excuse to maybe play more or At least take advantage of the free range. As well as, good support for kids growth in golf.

    Excited because I get to play 36 holes today, birthday tradition, disappointed because the one buddy who said he’d take the day off texted me 20 minutes after there was a penalty for canceling at one course so I’m gonna have to pay double or some shit.
