  1. I drooled over NCW images for a long time, and after a lot of planning and emailing got these in recently. I went with 6* loft gaps from 23-47 (essentially 1.5 club steps) and Patrick helped advise on length/lie according to my specs. I was looking for something between my Miura Baby Blades and a Titleist CB and think they came out great and look forward to getting them dirty. Engraving wise I was going for a family heirloom set to pass onto my son or daughter...probably son The sole is our family name, a la older Macgregor style, and the muscle are family nicknames; Hosel DW for Don Wh
  2. 5 KBS C-Taper Lite X flex pure'd shafts w Tour G grips I put these in a short set thus the 5 shafts: 3 iron shaft 40.5 in. playing 37.25 to end of grip 5 iron shaft 39.5 in. playing 36.5 EoG 6 iron shaft 39 in. playing 35.5 EoG 8 iron shaft 38 in. playing 35 EoG 9/W shaft 37.5 in. playing 34.5 EoG These run $50 + $20 pure + $21 grip=$91/shaft before tax and shipping....so I've got embarrassingly $455 in these. Selling shipped CONUS for $205 Only used for 9 holes literally, Pure'd by Golf Works in March this year. All pure'ing paperwork and sh
  3. any idea what length this would play with callaway tip?
  4. XR-16 Pro w Hzrdus Black 6.0 since winter 2016. Hard to beat it, in fact just had a fitting and comparing it to Epic Speed w Ventus Blue slight (slight) improvement. Does it justify $1000 in head and shaft....NO
  5. And for more practical solutions: Course asks players checking in if they want to share their round. Players that do are given something (GPS tracker, a Gold Medal...whatever) and their name/time is marked on the tee sheet. Someone seeking a 9 hole loop inquires in proshop if any back 9s are available. If so then that player pays for 9 (HALF of 18 fee, not 60-70% of 18 hole fee!!) and then front 9 player must return the thing (GPS, Gold Medal) into proshop to get their 50% credit. This ensures no stowaways and limits loss to course. This is purely a service feature, for the golf co
  6. Totally agree with the poor pricing of 9-hole offerings. I have 2 ideas on getting more 9-hole options. Great idea on 1-2somes early in the day! it seems making money is the pure motivation-somewhat understandably at public courses. I know courses don’t make ‘that’ much money and the overhead is steep. **Dreaming here** Wouldn’t it be great to have routing that allows multiple 3-5 hole loops giving Uber flexibility of starts/end points, perhaps simple daily fees for the people with loads of time in their hands. Or a course run simply for the player experience, early tim

  10. I agree that 'real golf' is a full round, and with that the scoring strategy and stress making up for a bad start or holding on for a career low etc. I'm with all the commenters coming from that angle. I get the private club benefit but childcare and housing in the SF area is STEEP $$$. But my point here is: Some Golf>No Golf. I don't expect to play 'a lot' of golf with young children and both of us working full time jobs with no family nearby, but what I want to change is the ability to get 9 in at more desirable 'normal' courses at normal mid day mid week times.

  11. Thanks for all the thoughtful responses and for taking time on the poll (the 2nd question isn't worded well; should say MORE rounds). I went through all the comments and don't have the time to respond individually so I'll post some follow up here: I live in SF East Bay area and do have access to Tilden Park which offers early bird 9 hole rates for the back nine which is awesome--$13 and usually home by 8-8:30. Locally (~25miles) there are about 4 courses offering 9 hole booking, mind you these are not the quality of golf most of us want to make your regular outing, and some only offe
