    Does anyone want to play Stonelick Hills Saturday morning? 7:50. Can't book/play as a single, I believe it is the first tee time. Coming from Chicago for a wedding, but if it makes it any better I hate the Cubs, so we probably have that in common.


    If you hot out to Stonelick I hope you liked it. What'd you think about it compared to your course's up in Chicago?

    For those in central ohio Indian Springs in Mechanicsburg is closing and is going up for sale soon. It's where i got my start in the golf turf industry back in 99. Really sad what happened to it over the last 10+ years, was once one of the top 5-10 public courses in the state. They lost/cut down many trees that took away from the course and a failing irrigation system and lack of budget really put a strain on conditions in that time frame. Sad for me to hear, another one bites the dust.

    Just a heads-up to Daytonians...



    Miami Valley Golf Club is changing their membership structure for the 2019 season. It's now going to be a $2,400 flat rate (plus tax) which includes family + pool access. It's a pretty sweet deal.

    Anyone have any information (without having to submit a formal request) for the Hamilton Elks Golf Club? As the only info I can find is if I am adding to the cart for total costs.



    I do understand you have to become an "Elk" in which you have to have members vouch for you. Unfortunately, I will no longer qualify for the 30 and under fees as I am 31. Also, I have a 3 year old son, would he be considered a Junior?



    Any info would be great - Took 2 years away from the game, figuring I would strike up again once I though he was of age to tag along.

    Hey there, I'm an Elk over there and play quite a bit. Yes you become an Elk which is pretty easy, then you can sign up for the early bird rate before the end of January. I think he would be considered a junior, but 3 is quite young so maybe bringing him now and then wouldn't be worth joining as a family. You could see if they would just let you treat him like a junior guest maybe. My buddy has a little guy he brings sometimes, I'll ask him what they do about that.



    It's a great deal. Feel free to ask anything else. I have a detailed pricing list for next year. The guys in the shop are cool too so they can answer anything for ya.

    Anyone in NE Ohio that could recommend a great instructor? Looking to take a few lessons early spring need some help with irons and short game specifically. Not looking for indoor or hitting off a mat. I never hit the ball well off of a mat for some reason so looking for someone who will teach on a grass range with a launch monitor. Any info is appreciated, thanks

    I’ll have to stop there and have a chat with him next time I’m out that way. Really like that course, play there a few times a year. The Tent sale is always an expensive weekend for me!

    Have you, or anyone else for that matter, had a fitting experience at Windmill Lakes? I'm planning on getting a full bag fitting/upgrade within the next month and just wanted to know how it went over there. I called the pro shop to ask some questions and the person who does the fittings, Justin Long, seemed very nice. All I could find on their website was they carried all the big named brands and used Trackman 4.

    Bump as it has been a month since anyone posted here! Season is about to get underway, hopefully I can actually play this year so long as the weather is decent.



    I'm thinking of joining a GC for the first time as a junior member. I'm single, soon to be 29 and would like a place to consistently practice or play without driving too far after work. Not interested really in pricey food minimums, pool/tennis, etc. I think the only club that fits that bill to a tee is probably Stonelick, but at nearly 30-40 minutes each way, that's a hard sell for convenience sake. I'd rather just pay to play there once a month like I tried to do last season, only with weather I barely got out to play at all.



    I'm in Kennedy Heights, closer to Oakley. Looks like the closest option is Losantiville CC, but I haven't heard great things about that course or practice facility, and they carry a few minimums. Maketewah or Hyde Park are not far either, but certainly not a small investment, considering they don't post rates I'll assume "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" status. Of course, Kenwood is close - but likely half my pay to get my foot in the door, so I'll opt to forget it even exists.



    Is there anything else "affordable" around here? I know most public courses very well in the area, and am pretty burnt out on most of them, but I have only played two private clubs ever since living here. They were out of my price range and out of the way - O'bannon and Four Bridges.

    The thread lives. Definitely ready to start playing but my group of friends here in Cincinnati really won't head out until its 50 and sunny so they weren't interested in playing this Sunday just yet. I played a few weeks back in Orlando and it was upper 70s..what a nice break that was. Though my game was super rusty after not swinging the sticks for a few months it was still nice to just get out in nice weather.

    Losantiville is gonna be your only option (at your location and pricepoint) I'm afraid. it's not a bad course at all by the way... Maketewah is great with great facilities. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask, I did and they all are more than accommodating. Ivy Hills is another option but good luck walking that course. Coldstream is underrated but might be expensive. Hyde Park and Cincinnati Country Club might be options if you know the right people. Kenwood is great with 36 holes but tbh some members are way too snooty for me. Clovernook or Western Hills CC aren't bad options either, I like the latter better. I'm not sure of the junior membership options at a lot of these clubs. Maketewah's last time I checked was steep but not egregious.

    It can't hurt. A few of my buddies are members there. For the price its a helluva deal. I haven't played there in some time, but when I did play it was in good shape. Did Stillmeadow CC used to be called Royal Oak?

    Typically, they will start you out with a Directed Force putter to check for length and lie. From there a big emphasis is put on what style of putter (neck and blade vs mallet) you aim the best.



    From there you select those types of putters and begin rolling putts to look at the ball data, change lofts if needed, and pick 2-3 you like the best. If weather allows you then go out on the putting green and put the putters through a "real world" test for lag/feel and short range makes.



    It is a good process and can teach you a lot about your individual putting tendencies.





    A major revelation that came from my fitting was how off my aim was. I thought that having a putter with a large line on it (Ping Vault Bergen) and putting a line on the ball would be the best way for me to line up putts. I left there realizing that I am significantly better with a putter having zero alignment aids and by not using any alignment on the ball.

    Have a Putter fitting at MOG coming up soon, what should I expect? I've never had one before.






    Typically, they will start you out with a Directed Force putter to check for length and lie. From there a big emphasis is put on what style of putter (neck and blade vs mallet) you aim the best.

    Awesome, I was hoping it would be super comprehensive, and not just a basic fitting like one from GG. Interesting they start out with a DF putter as a baseline. I'm surprised they don't just have you use your own putter. Is the fitting how you ended up with your arm lock putter? I'm a pretty mental putter when it comes to set up, I'll just have to stick with the set up that feels comfortable I guess. I'm doing this in an effort to find some consistency.

    Has anyone used windmill golf center in Macedonia for lessons? I’ve received a gift card for there and was considering using it for lessons. They have a few different instructors so just wondering if one was better than the others or if anyone had any insight at all. Thanks
