    Yea, it was a good time. A little trippy when the old guys we were playing with would say our name.

    I finished up with a 76. Couldn't make a putt to save my life.

    Was cool finally meeting @chadcharb finally, good guy. Fairly "normal" lol.

    I play about 20 times per year for the last 3 years. Not that good though. Usually low 90's on par 72's. I'm (sadly) inconsistent but can hit drives 280-310yds when my timing is on point. I hit a 5 iron about 185yds. Crazy to see pros hit 5 irons 210yds+

    My swing speed is around 102-103mph and I swing stiff shafts. All Titleist. Bought a used Titleist driver a year ago, loved it, and I sold my TM R1 driver.

    Hardest game I've ever played. For me, it's a game of balance between focusing and relaxing.

    I try to play at least once a week (9 holes) but I'm not very good anymore.
    Lucky to get +9 for 9 holes, nice bogey golf game.
    Hit some great shots, and flub others... thats how it goes unless you put in the time and effort to practice.

    Luckily I have a rather dead course close to my house so I get to enjoy a nice empty golf course.
    You trade off a little on the quality of the course, but its much better than being stuck in a 4 some with strangers and waiting on every tee.

    Used to play a lot and shoot Chaz type scores, now I play very rarely and shoot Chadcarb scores.

    It's a little frustrating but I just don't have the time to dedicate to being good.

    It's kinda like the skinny girl in high school that had a couple kids and blew up like a parachute. If she put a little effort into it she could be skinny and hot again, but it's easier to sit on the sofa and eat chips.

    Wish I could play more, just too lazy most of the time to actually go out and play a full 18 holes. I used to be able to go out and play 36 holes by myself in one day. Now I more enjoy it for the company. I play better if I don't take it too seriously. My last round in high school golf at the state tournament I shot an 80, I hit every green in regulation that day and had 40 putts. Absolutely terrible putting day.




    My best round is a 69 at this golf course when I was in my Junior year in high school. Course rating of 73! Super hard course. I was playing almost lights out though. Had a double bogey and still shot 3 under par. I had the best round in that match. Our #1 at the time shot a 71 and thought he had done well, when I came in with my 69 it really took the wind out of his sails lol. I really miss high school golf sometimes, I made a lot of good friends and acquaintances.

    Played quite a bit of disc golf in college. Hung over mornings with a bunch of friends.

    oh man I played an amazing course today! probably the nicest course Ive played in the U.S. in a long time
    Suncadia's Prospector course. Really fun course to play. shot a 92 which Im really happy with for a course like this. my buddy hit his first eagle on a 410yd par 4, stuck the pin from about 160 out

    Nicest golf course (and most expensive) I've ever played at is at a Indian Casino. Fairways are like fine carpet. Free water bottles in fridges ever 3 holes. All the range balls you want. Plush golf carts with GPS monitors. Guy on the 18th who will clean your clubs/shoes. Blah blah blah. Around $90 on a weekend. Link below.

    I usually play at a municipal golf course that pales in comparison but is around $20 w/cart.

    thats a good looking course! sounds the same as prospector as far as amenities and price. that course is longer though only a few hundred yards

    Where at? I'm prob in for a tune up round soon. Work has been killing my evenings. Lost another employee this week. Most I get to play is hitting the range once a week or so.

    I'm playing salish cliffs this weekend. My dad does a league thing where they play high end courses or private courses as a group and it costs $5 + steep discounted green fees. Looking at bear Creek and tpc snoqualmie in the fall.

    Who knew @chaz was so good? 75 there is stellar for not playing much. I'm usually around where @chadcharb is at 90 ish.

    I used to play quite a bit when in High School and College. I just recently started playing again. I've been twice in the past 3 months, lol. I'm not as good as I used to be...

    Bummer, left my clubs at the gf's in edgewood last week. Otherwise I could have made that. Super bummer.

    I might try and play tomorrow or hit the range after work. Thursday would work too.
