Play a crappy course or not play at all?

    I once played a nine hole “course” outside Scranton, PA that I would never play again. (Although I doubt it’s still operating.). A farmer decided to turn his land into a golf course, and I think he litterally bought a green mower and hole cutter and mowed 9 circular areas in the pasture to green height, then cut the rest to lawn height. It was $12 green fee and at least $11 too much.

    Other than that one, I’ve yet to find a course that I wouldn’t play due to conditioning.

    Living in NY, w/little free time & how pricy golf can get... I don't care anymore... I feel lucky to have the opportunity to play! (Now, if I could just be more darn consistent w/my overall game, I'd be even happier!!!)

    If ive planned to play on a specific day i will do my utmost to play, at xmas me and my dad went to a course that closed at the last minute due to bad weather, we then travelled 50 miles away to a course that we had never played before, just because it was open

    If you don't like "crappy" courses, you'd likely never play in Scotland.
