    Re: Golf

    I think there's a golf thread already? But maybe not. I play probably bogey golf, would love to get out once this nonsense ends.

    Re: Golf

    Play 2 to 3 times a week. I'm a high handicap. Pars and bogeys come more regularly this season but in the name of counting each shot, some 9s and 10s aren't aren't of the question if I blow up a par 5. I usually shoot between 90 and 100.

    I was curious if anyone in Western mass played but it doesn't seem to be the case.

    Re: Golf

    Just played a round of 9 last week for the first time in about two years. Felt good to get back out on the course. Got to play w/ my dad & my 12 year old nephew who probably shot just as well as I did. We didn't keep score but I can hardly break 110 on a good day so I prob hit a 50 somethin. Whatever, I had at least 1 or 2 shots on each hole that I was really happy with so that kept my spirits up.

    Re: Golf

    I'm regrettably out on golf at this point, I don't have the time to dedicate to it. I used to be a very good golfer, as such, I have a rough time with playing poorly. If I'm not on the range twice a week and playing once at minimum, I don't want any part of it. A bit sad because I love the game, but the game will still be there later in life when I'm able to pick it up again.

    Re: Golf

    I think I'm going to give it a shot this year. Moving to south Florida means I'll have to find things to do outside 8 months of the year I'm normally inside.

    Re: Golf

    Tried it once and got booted from the course. Apparently golfers don't appreciate it when you use an aluminum baseball bat to tee off. I guess they were jealous of my 300 yard drive.

    I'm trying to get my hands on a golf ball launcher for my SKS

    Re: Golf

    So I went all in a couple of weeks ago at Pembroke Pines which is two miles from my house. Qualified for the old guy membership rate so I picked one up for next year which lets me play the remainder of this season free. Got about 90 holes in and a dozen buckets of ball since. Free buckets on their range included with the membership which is sweet. Visited Golf and Ski warehouse and replaced my 30 year old sticks with a new set and FUCK this is fun. The membership is also good a Ridgewood in Moultonborough and Canterbury woods. I haven’t played either of those yet, so if anyone is interested in playing at any of these, pm me.

    Canterbury is a great course with several challenging holes. A couple par 3 holes (6 and 11) are personal favorites. You have a bird's eye view of the green and tee off at a decent elevation. The distance/elevation makes club choice tricky. They've really improved the course over the years. Enjoy!
