    Main thing I remember from the Ranch was little old ladies complaining and snap hooking a drive over houses.

    that sounds like a while back. Most of the complainers are old men now. image/blind.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':blind:' />

    I don't follow any golf deal websites and $55 seems more than affordable.

    I only had 36 putts at South Suburban yesterday--through 17. The rain and lightning scared me off on 18. I even two-putted #6 and #14 for pars. It was so difficult to get the right feel on the uphill putts.

    Good job, those are 2 of the toughest, but okay if you are below the hole.



    I had the greatest back-to-back 2 putts of my life yesterday....the kind where if you were to putt at the hole your ball would roll off the green by some 8-12 feet. Still had to make a 7-8 footer on the 2nd ones, but they were both straight uphill. Looks like the $45 Bettinardi has officially secured a spot in the bag for good. (well as long as any of us ever leaves a putter in that is)

    This is borderline unheard of: I'm actually playing golf for a third weekend in a row! Unfortunately, I'm missing my golf league on Saturday because my daughter has her state gymnastics meet at the same time. On Sunday, I'm going to have my second match play match (against a 6-handicap). Course and time TBD, but it will most likely be Blackstone or Black Bear.



    After this weekend, I won't be playing state-side again until Murphy Creek on August 9. Hopefully I can squeeze in at least three rounds while I'm in Sweden.

    Darn! I was hoping you'd go through the Edel fitting process so I could get some feedback on it from MetaGolf. That's a heck of a score though!

    I've got two buddies who both have Edel putters, went through the process - couple years since they were fit, and they're both really pleased with the process and they're putting... Not sure if that helps...

    We played Murphy Creek last week, great shape. Hadn't played it in about 10 years and had forgotten how fun it was.

    Blackstone at 9:30. Anyone else going to be playing around at that time?

    Did they do it at MetaGolf? I'm curious if the fitting process is consistent from fitter to fitter.

    Daughter's soccer coach from a few years back was the membership director at Pinery. Back then, they had a $6k initiation special--he also quoted something close that monthly number; I believe it's closer to $600/mo if you want to include Pradera.

    If you're going out to play this weekend, don't forget the mosquito spray. It's going to be warm and swarmy.

    I loaded up a couple days ago. Played Fox Hollow last Saturday in shorts early in the AM and it was a mosquito mashup.

    I grabbed a 6am tee time at Hyland Hills for tomorrow morning. It's 5 minutes from my house and I've lived in Colorado for 8 years but have never played. Anyone played it before? Supposed to be pretty decent but not spectacular. For under $40, I'll give it a go and report back!

    I'm a fan of hyland hills. I like the way it's layed out, it's challenging in spots and a good deal. It's usually in really nice condition too, but haven't played it this year

    I've played Hyland HIlls once, and I thought it was a nice course. Golf league is playing there on 8/16.



    I've been holed up in my house all weekend due to vertigo-like symptoms. Missed my daughter's state gymnastics meet yesterday, and I had to cancel golf today. image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

    Played Hyland Hills today and played well but wouldn't say I was overly impressed with the course. There are some good holes but a lot of tricky throw away holes. A few holes you can barely miss and others you can blow it all over the lot. Greens were slow first thing but got much more speedy as the greens dried out. Conditions were good but nowhere near great. Amazing value for $40 but pretty much what you would expect for that price. I'll play it again for sure but probably from the tips the next time around.

    Played Bear Dance for the first time yesterday. Couldn't figure out the greens on the 1st 9 and shot 45, then had it at 2 under through 6 on the back 9 and put one in the pond in front of hole 7, doubled that, then bogied in for a 38. Happy with the total back score but upset I couldn't hold on to the under par 9 and shoot in the 70s. Oh well. The course was in great shape and beautiful. Had a great time!

    Bear Dance is one of my favorites. I need to get back out there again.



    I played Indian Peaks yesterday. I wasn't all that impressed with the layout of some of the holes, notably #1 and 7. #7 ate my lunch and I took a quadruple. I had no idea what to hit off of the tee to get to the safe landing zone. I then got unlucky with a lie on 9 and doubled it for a 48 on the front. I was none too pleased. Fortunately, I turned it around on the back and shot a 40 - should have been a 38 or 39 had I not choked on my approach after a great drive on 18.



    I suffered major putting woes again, missing some easy putts and not getting one birdie. If I was outside of 20', I could almost guarantee a 3-putt. My putting has been downright terrible this year. I need to figure something out...



    On the plus side, I may be picking up a used set of Nike VR Pro Combo irons this week. I remember hitting them a couple years ago and falling in love with them. My Mizzy MP-60's have been great, but I'm ready for something new.
