  3. I live about five miles from World Woods and always love going out there...even just to use the range!

    They are aerating the greens again. Just finished Pine Barrens last week. Rolling Oaks will be closed next week Tues-Fri, then low "recovery" rates thru the end of August.
  5. Weather is usually very nice. 70-75 degrees in the daytime on average, and not much rain. Can be breezy at times, depending on which course you're playing. Crowds aren't bad either in my experience. Seems to pick up in March when people go on spring break.
  6. Have used SkyCaddie products for many years, but got fed up with the glitchyness and overall poor performance. Had two Breeze units fail on me, the second after the warranty expired. The SGXw I bought used now performs like a relic... slow and clunky. Purchased an S20 last week and it's been terrific in every way. Very quick to find your course and update yardages. My biggest surprise is that it's actually more accurate than my SGX, which was the main reason I had stuck with SkyCaddie for so long.
  7. I’ve had great success with sunshinegolfllc on eBay. I think all their balls ship for free, and very quickly.
  8. Greetings. Do you generally use the same measurement specs for your wedges that you use with your iron set? I recently upgraded my standard irons to a set that fits my measurements and swing better (+.5 in. length, 1 degree upright.) I need to purchase a new wedge set soon. In your opinion, should those specs match the irons? Thank you...
  9. Greetings. Has anyone experienced a tour van fitting at one of their stores? The one near me in Orlando offers full bag fittings for $99, which seems like a good deal. I have no intention of changing all my clubs right away, but it would be nice to get update specs on newer equipment. Thank you...

    I've heard good things about Saddlebrook Resort recently. I know they have been trying to revamp their courses.
  11. One reason I've used Sky Caddie for so long is the perceived accuracy advantage. If Bushnell is accurate, then that might be a way to go.
  12. I have used Sky Caddies for years but have now had two separate BREEZE'S suffer unrecoverable software/firmware failures. It's no longer under warranty and I really don't want to by another Sky Caddie that's going to fail. Could someone recommend a brand that has more reliable software? Considering a Garmin or Bushnell watch at the moment, but I'd be thrilled with something that just works! Thanks...

[quote name='meaks17' timestamp='1429029176' post='11356655'] Callaway X2 Hot Pro 4-PW (your choice of Project X 5.0, 5.5 or 6.0 shafts) $300 + FS [url="http://www.golfetail.com/p-206871-callaway-golf-x2-hot-pro-iron-set-4-pw.aspx?utm_source=publicaster&utm_medium=email_dt&utm_term=callaway_x2_hot_pro_irons&utm_content=with_buy_box&utm_campaign=15apr14_email_dt?siteID=lw9MynSeamY-p.QD92fBCgIfR.0xjStFqQ"]LINK[/url] [/quote] Thanks! I jumped on this. Hit these last year and loved them. $299 for 7 clubs is hard to beat.
  14. Don't forget to try your local Goodwill sometime. I picked up two practically brand-new Peter Millar shirts for $4.50 total.
  15. Does anyone make a golf hat or visor that keeps sweat off you face as well as a regular sweatband? I've tried looking online and I have not found anything that really qualifies. Playing in the summer heat, while wearing sunglasses, can make it a hassle to keep wiping moisture away. Thank you...
  16. I think Farmstead is one of the better values you'll find. Close to where you are and a fun layout. Thistle would be great, but may be out of your price range this time.
  17. I've been fortunate to play three of the better private clubs here in Arkansas. Pinnacle in Rogers hosts the Walmart NWA on the LPGA Tour. Hardscrabble in Fort Smith hosted the Web.com event for many years (Zach Johnson won one year.) I've also played Little Rock Country Club, a very nice older classic course with some views of the Arkansas River and downtown. But The Alotian Club is now the premier course in Arkansas, and it isn't even close. I doubt I'll ever be able to play there. It was founded by Warren Stephens, whose family has long had ties to Augusta National. It hosted the Western Amateur last summer. Phil and Tiger have both done exhibitions there, benefiting The First Tee.
  18. [quote name='RPVL' timestamp='1392331198' post='8662543'] [quote name='KILLEDBYASHANKEDWEDGE' timestamp='1392329234' post='8662273'] That shaft is true to flex and I know someone swinging 105-110 that loves that exact shaft, same set up as you. [/quote] I have a completely opposite experience. The stock rip nv shaft plays around 2 flexes softer. My stiff was around a senior flex. [/quote] Okay, my experience is [b]also [/b]that it's soft. Maybe that's why it doesn't feel "consistent".
  19. I got this driver as a birthday present last year, and while I like it, I think a shaft upgrade may be in order. It came with the stock Aldila RIP 60, stiff. My swing speed is 95-100 mph. Anyone using this driver with a shaft they love?
  20. Am I the only one who thinks it would make sense for Callaway to buy SkyGolf? Callaway would get the leading golf GPS, and SkyGolf would get better customer service.
  21. For what it's worth, Amazon has Lethals for under $30 right now. There's a $6 discount after you add them to your cart. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B1I9TB6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  22. I would think after that amount of time they are probably just good for practicing. Golf balls have a shelf life of about five years, after which the performance deteriorates and you lose distance. Of course, the only way to know for sure is to compare them on the course with a new ball. They may end up working fine for you.
  23. Now Amazon has them for 19.99. http://www.amazon.com/Srixon-151101-Z-Star-XV/dp/B004OI266A/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1374608464&sr=8-4&keywords=srixon+golf+balls
  24. Could anyone tell me about how far these go compared to a regular swing? Say, if my 7-iron travels 150-155 yds, how far would a Birdie Ball go? Thanks...
  25. I would not use that Nike style of hat, but I see nothing wrong with some kind of wide-brimmed hat to keep the sun off. Maybe like the kind Greg Norman wore?
