  1. Was also going to say old American for sure too. Also, a local website avid golfer posts a yearly best of private, where you can see rough costs and all if you need some ballpark numbers
  2. Need to get new wedges this offseason. Any places do outdoor grass fittings in DFW? I'm also considering going down to Edel if anybody has any experience at their shop near Austin
  3. Played one week ago, was in awesome awesome shape, I had such a fun time. Greens were in great shape, slower but they weren’t bad by any means
  4. We were with Tom Obey a few weeks back and he was great!
  5. Just got back and the scorecard does not say anything about anticipated pace of play. We played in 4:15, 4:15, and 4:45 (afternoon)
  6. We booked at the end of April and had no issues. We weren't looking to book the first available weekend, however, but rather the last weekend of the summer rate ;), so I have no idea how far ahead you need to book, but we had no issues with ~4-5 months ahead
  7. Just got back from two nights and 3 rounds at Streamsong, Golf was fantastic. They were some awesome, awesome courses, very beautiful and a great variety with all 3 because of the three different architects. It was such a cool property. We also had great service in all of the restaurants, valet, caddie, shuttles, and lodge staff. I could tell there was a constant effort to serve the guests, and after our stay, I received a link to an internal review of streamsong, and there was a number of questions asking about how the service was, and its speed. You could tell there has been, and still is, a sincere effort to improve on some of y'alls past complaints with service. I thought the service was great. Also, to be fair, a lot of the service complaints earlier in this thread came during COVID, which hurt the service industry across the board. Overall, it was a fantastic experience, our group all had such a fun time. Would recommend it to anyone. Streamsong was one heck of a place. We played 36 Saturday and 18 Sunday, walking the earlier rounds of each day. No real pace of play issues that we encountered. Even in the summer, there were a lot of groups walking in the morning, and even some in the afternoon. Forgot to mention - they had an awesome system where you leave your bag at the clubhouse after your round, and they will take care of it overnight/between rounds. They'd shuttle it to the next course's bag drop which was so convenient for us with everything else to do, and everything else that's going on. We showed up to our first round at black and our bags were sitting at the driving range for us (we played the par 3 the night before), then after our round, they brought our clubs over to red/blue for us for our round that afternoon, only ~1 hour after we finished the morning round, and the bags were sitting there at bag drop for us. Made things so much easier, and was a great service
  8. Javier's is high end texmex, Mia's is a great shout too, Al Biernet's, The original Bob's steakhouse is good. There are plenty of fine dining options in Dallas. Speaking of Texas themed food, I Loved the Reata in downtown Fort Worth. Had the best Carne Asada Cheese enchilada I've ever had there. Place was great.
  9. Old American is a great spot. Host of an LPGA event. Its on site with the tribute
  10. Went and got fit one year ago with SAM putt lab. Had 6* of arc in my stroke, so I was fit for a SBST putter. However, with the putter face balanced, it would constantly hood on me in the “downswing.” So, Went and got a Taylormade Spider with small toe hang, I enjoy it much better because the toe hang forces my face to rotate, and not complete stay closed the whole way for me.
  11. Had an interaction this weekend with a random guy which got me thinking... What do you do If you meet someone at the gym, bar, neighborhood pool, store, etc. and the conversation leads to golf, they give you their number and invite you to come play at their club sometime. Do you reach out to accept their offer and set something up? I'm talking like you just met this individual, and you talked for an hour max. Do you assume that it was simply a kind gesture, or a serious offer? Do you say what the heck and accept the invite? Or are you the one who invites people you just met - is it usually a lighthearted gesture or a serious offer? Met a guy at a store for 20 minutes and he invited me to a pretty high end club in the area where he's a member, which has got me thinking let's do it and go play this course. Not so much looking for advice, but rather your experiences with similar encounters.
  12. Bay Point is real quality
  13. Heritage Ranch Golf & CC, Rockwood Park in Fort Worth, Pecan Hollow is a good time, and in great shape too
  14. Seen a few of you remove the shiny chrome finish from the original nike blades. I got a set, and am interested in doing the same. I saw someone post that they just used a few varying levels of sandpaper, does this remove the chrome, or just the luster? What I'm worried about is does it put the iron at risk for rust, kind of like a raw finished wedge? Thinking about the long term effects
  15. Travis Mathew Starnes shorts - I tried a few as well but landed here. They feel like gym shorts, are maybe an inch shorter than typical golf shorts, so they are a great size. The pockets are also half mesh so that any dirt and sand will never stay trapped in your pockets. 10/10 Highly recommend. Golf Galaxy been carrying them as of recent as well if you want to try them on
  16. Most definitely not, I have heard from a few sources that membership has boomed once the byron left (still never overly busy from what I've noticed when I've been out there this year a few times)
  17. I've been hitting up Thorntree the last few weeks which is just south of Dallas. Been loving it, and its very affordable. I've been out there a few times now and its like I have the course to myself (after 3pm). Actually has elevation which is a good change of pace from Dallas. Also, for the range and some casual rounds, Keeton Park is awesome and super cheap
  18. Leo, I'm wondering too if by playing a premium, urethane ball (Z-Star XV), my misses are magnified as well. Anyone have any evidence or testimony about comparing a lower spinning ball to a higher spinning ball on your mishits? In my case, I hit a draw with my driver, and my miss is a cut/slice. I feel like my mishits end up ~10-25 yards to the right of my target. Would a Surlyn, or other lower spinning ball, shrink the magniture of my miss? Anybody ever tested this or noticed anything?
  19. If I'm trying to walk on the South (First week of June on a Monday or Tuesday), can I walk on as a single anytime between 8am and 11am and be fine to get on? Or am I better off paying the advanced reservation fee? Would prefer to not have to get there at like ~5 or 6am to try to play lol. Thanks
