    Just getting away from work for a couple of hours, playing on an empty course, watching the wife get another hole in one.

    Standing on the tee and looking at the two tone mow lines on the fairway.



    Wildlife on the course. I have been lucky enough to see eagles, bear, moose, owls, hawks, and fox.



    That moment when a well struck shot comes down from the sky into the mountain backdrop so I can see it better.



    Good bounces, and I rely on those.

    When you hit your tee shot into the woods/tall rough and have no idea where the ball is..... yet, against all odds, you find the ball and put it back in play

    A proper yardage marker on the tee box for par 3s or holes with forced carry/trouble at the end of the fairway.

    It would speed up play if they would just throw a plaque down that says “ohh by the way its 250 from here to carry that creek”.

    The smell of a Sharpie as you mark a new sleeve of balls before hitting the putting green before play.

    How about this one - hitting your ball into a bunker but when you get to the bunker it's actually be raked correctly.

    Which begs the question:



    What IS the "correct" way to rake a bunker?



    I know what I was taught as a caddy, but - is the way that I do it "correct"?



    Supposedly, the rake lines left in the sand should flow in the direction of the flag, to more easily accomodate the play from the sand, and alleviate the possibility of having a rake "ridge" behind your ball for the bunker shot.



    I say phooey - you hit it in da bunker, you gets what you gets...usually a heel print about halfway down in the sand towards China, at least that is what seems to happen to me.

    My local muni has one of those. No one ever really knew what the distances were to a creek that cuts across the fairway. The 3 tee boxes are all really long, so the distance can vary tremendously. It's a nice touch.

    I also love summer evening solo golf, under cloudless skies with just a hint of a breeze.

    Man it's been a long winter..

    Don't want to make you feel bad, but I just played an evening solo round the other day and it was glorious. The weather was 75 and partly cloudy. I love living in the South this time of year.
