In doing so I also saw a photo on the Dormie Club's twitter feed from Aug. 31 and the green in the pic looked a bit sketchy. I know they have bent grass so maybe some cooler weather in the coming weeks will help with that. I've just heard of people playing it and being really disappointed by the conditions given the price tag. Hoping someone who has played it semi-recently can chime in here.
  3. I have a tee time at the Dormie Club in early November. I heard a rumor that their greens have recently gone completely to crap. Can anyone who has recently played there deny or confirm this before I shell out 175 bucks to play it? Much thanks.
  4. Coral Canyon is a good track. Last time I was there (maybe 3 years ago) conditions were not what they were back in its heyday but still good. Some blind-ish shots, which not everyone loves. Mostly good holes with a few bad ones. All in all it belongs in the rotation. I've played Ledges and Sky Mountain a couple times each but it was so long ago I hardly remember much about them other than having some pretty awesome views off the cliff sides. Never played Coyote Springs but heard good things about it. Sun Mountain has 27 holes and it's a good course. There's also a place called Bloomin
  5. The lack of consumer protection is what makes me lean towards buying new. If I buy a used one and it craps out after 6 months I am screwed. It's no different than buying anything else used in that respect though.
  6. A brand new one is $1700. Does the 2 grand come with a simulator subscription or screen or something? A brand new one is 2 grand. https://shop.skytrak...s-packages.aspx Don't know where everyone keeps getting the 17 number? It comes with an impact screen and fittings for pipe. and its 1800. Rounded up to 2k for exaggeration purposes. Gotcha. I wonder if they were on sale at one point for 1700 but are now back up to normal price. The fact that it comes with a screen is nice because those aren't necessarily cheap themselves. I plan on making a purchase later this year and am on the

  8. If you can play another 9 on the championship course for a comparable price as another 9 on the links course, champ course is the way to go. The links course is fun, but certainly not more so than either of the nines on the championship course. Honestly, if you can just play 36 on the championship course, it's well worth playing twice. The links course is fun but not any sort of "must play."
  9. Sounds like a fun trip. My thoughts.... 1. Entrada will straight up murder a high handicapper. It's a good course, but someone who struggles to break 100 will really have a hard time out there. 2. Dining -- we usually rent a house from AirBnb that has a grill and oven. Get some steaks and frozen pizzas. I find it to be more enjoyable (and way cheaper) than going out. St. George is a rather sleepy town anyway. 3. Sand Hollow -- best golf course you will play down there easily. The links course is a lot of fun. There is also a 9-hole par 3 course there as well, so you can actually play 36
  10. Don't care if people smoke, but I just can not stand seeing cigarette butts on the course. It amazes me that smokers seem to think that it's okay to just toss cigarette butts on the ground. Golf course, sidewalk, wherever they please. It really isn't that hard to put them in a trash can on the next tee box. Or just pile them up in your cart and toss them after the round or something. Definitely one of my biggest pet peeves on the golf course. I played with a guy recently who would vape on the greens. He would do it while I was putting and it was loud as hell. Kind of annoying.
  11. The Rules change for 2019 which mandates dropping from knee height would have been helpful for you to know. :) This occurred last year (2018 rules)
  12. I snuck away to play the Disney LBV course last year while on a family vacation. Good course and I was able to rent a nice set of Taylormade M2's that looked like they'd never been hit.
  13. Android or iPhone? (Or is it compatible on both?) I still find it odd that some systems require a high speed gaming console while with others a phone works just fine. Can anyone enlighten me about why that is? My assumption would be that the ones requiring computers have better graphics (hence a bigger demand of specs). But the demos that I see of different systems don't look radically different in terms of graphics.
  14. Rent an RV for the week and park it next to John Daly's in the Hooters parking lot.
  15. I point both index fingers down the shaft. Been playing for 20+ years and this is the only part of my game that has stayed consistent the entire time. I can't grip a putter conventionally. Just can't do it. It feels so strange to me. For the last couple years I've been using left-hand low with both index fingers pointed down.
