  1. Denison Golf Club (fka Granville Golf Course) designed by Donald Ross in 1924 and opened in 1925. It was "updated" in the 80s with some re-routing and 3 new holes added. Hoping the rumor of Hanse Golf Design Group being hired to create a master plan for restoration is true.
  2. I've had good results with my SL Odyssey No. 1 this year - switched from an Evnroll No. 7.
  3. I had the V1 and sold it to a friend when I got the V2. I have used a Clicgear 3.5+ and wheelie bars with both. The V2 is far easier to operate and more hands-off with the gyros and tether. The teather (TFS) is awesome - I didn't think I would use it at all and I can't believe how easy it is to use - grab and go and the cart follows. The V2 detachable battery is much more convenient if you leave the unit in your car or truck. Adding the swivel attachment to the front also made a huge difference with the V2 - I don't know that it would be as good with the V1 without gyros. But there is a ru
  4. The tavern at the Holly had a pretty good bourbon selection - better than anything else we found at the other resort bars/restaurants. The brewpub had a good North Carolina rye, but otherwise the whiskey selection wasn't great.
  5. I have a friend that bought the Precision earlier this year. He had to return the first one he bought because it didn't work at all. They replaced it but he does not find it to be as accurate as he hoped (compared to his Bushnell he had before) and he always has trouble shooting distances in lower light - such as early morning, dusk, fog, rain, etc. A bit of thread drift - my Leupold GXi4 LCDs are dying (second one in 10 years) and I began looking into replacements, including the cheaper alternatives. Given the reviews I read and my friend's experience, I opted to just pony up again and I j
  6. WIsh I could play - I enjoyed playing there some years ago. It reminded me of a smaller version of Scioto CC.
  7. I can't answer that because we didn't play it when we were there 2 years ago. But I wouldn't be surprised because of the amount of play it gets. And you don't need a tee time for the Thistle - just grab a drink and go. There were lots of people playing both - but, by the amount of trash talking and laughing we heard (and shared ) it seemed more were having a great time on the putting course.
  8. Just got back from a long weekend at Pinehurst. I get the idea of taking a cart on No. 8 because of the elevation changes, but I would walk it with a caddie for the experience, if possible. At least take a fore-caddie to help ball hawk and read the greens. No. 2 is an easy walk - it is relatively flat, but damn it's a hard golf course (not that No. 8 is easy). The only other thing I will add is that our group had more fun with a putting contest on the Thistle than playing the Cradle. You have to hit off of mats on the Cradle, which may or may not be your thing. Have a great trip together
  9. If you are an Audi fan (I am), take a look at the SQ5 - I bought a 2019 earlier this year to replace an A4 and it checks a lot of boxes for me and is a great DD. No mods other than PPF on the front end and window tint - after talking to the service manager I decided against a stage 1 or other mods that could negate the warranty. I think the BMW X3M40i or Mercedes GLC43 are comparable based on preference.
  10. This year post-April has been the busiest I've seen my course in 20 years. The tee times are typically booked from Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon every weekend. We used to be able to play our Saturday morning round, grab lunch and few drinks, and they head back out for an emergency 9, but not this year. And this time of year the amount of play is increased by the high school and college golf teams practicing and playing.
  11. A few notes after my 3rd round with the V2: Pros 1. Much faster than the V1. Goes up even steep hills effortlessly. 2. The gyros work great to keep the cart from requiring as many steering adjustments as with the V1. 3. The removal battery is a great convenience feature. 4. Though others have complained about it, I like the remote lock strap that goes on the cart handle. I have used it occasionally when I don't put the remote in my pocket. It is much better than the magnetic version on the V1. Cons 1. The cart will turn sharp left going up st
  12. Mine arrived today. Fingers crossed I'll get to try it out for 9 tomorrow and 18 Saturday and Sunday (hurricane remnants not withstanding).
  13. Clean, easy interface. And I like not being redirected to the top of the page anymore when refreshing or going back a page.
  14. On a visit to Indy for my daughter's dance competition last year I only was able to play The Fort. It is on a spectacular property. I really enjoyed it and was looking forward to return to play some of the others recommended, but Covid got in the way.
