  1. Is there not a 2022 lottery or did it already happen? I thought it was usually fall the year before but I didn't see it on the site.
  2. Could do Streamsong. Hard to lose balls there for the most part. Black has massive fairways. For high handicap it is nice because you can swing away, find your ball, hit into big greens etc. 3 great courses there though.
  3. Usually released first week in October. From what I was told last year, not including the ocean course was a one year thing. Hopefully that is true. Otherwise the deal isn't even worth it since the other courses are just average.
  4. Just an update. Wore these today and they felt different than all of my other pairs. Much more cushioned feeling? My wife threw them on too to compare to her zits and said the same thing. They feel extremely comfortable and soft which is strange because they are the same model/line?
  5. Irish is better than both courses at Blackwolf Run, but not worth playing instead of straits. Also I'd assume the stands may still be up depending on your trip which is pretty cool.
  6. A lot of people that make that complaint have never played Pebble . I actually really enjoy the inland holes.
  7. Those are a shockingly different shade of light blue, almost non existent. Still not bad but, takes them down a tiny notch for me. Will these be out this week?
  8. I take it you scored a few shots under your course handicap then?
  9. Blackwolf Run is the most overrated course in the country. If I could play 10 rounds between Sand Valley, Mammoth Dunes and Blackwolf Run it would be split 5-5 at the SV courses.
  10. The thing is, there is good public golf in Chicago and Illinois. I think TPC Deere Run is better course than Cog. Then there are definitely a handful that compete with it that definitely aren't top 60 in the country. Great point on Southern Dunes and WekoPa. Quintero is pretty, but the layout isn't great at all. I love Southern Dunes, it feels different than everything else in the area.
  11. 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,10,12,13,16,17,18,19,20,26,29,33,34,47,55,56,59,68, 78,83,90. After the top 20 my list really thins out. But there are some awesome new courses listed that look really interesting - The Mclemore Club, Grizzly Ranch, Black Diamond Ranch, Ozarks National are all on the list to play. Sheep Ranch this fall and hopefully a bunch of the Pinehurst courses this winter/spring. I don't know how Cog Hill keeps staying in the top 60. I like the course and played it 5 times a year the past 6 years but there are more than 60 better courses than Cog.
  12. I'd rather over heat and be dehydrated than drink out of those bacteria jugs. Working at a golf course and seeing that they were never cleaned or sanitized and filled with a hose was enough to keep me from drinking out of them. Also seeing people open the top and scoop ice out etc. Stuff is gross.
  13. My wife and I joined a club with about 150-200 members and it is great. I go out at 730 am on the weekend and have the place to my self. Evenings the course is empty. We got really lucky. We were about to put money down on a waitlist for a different club. The other course may be a better layout and more amenities but we found out there is a lottery for weekend times. To me that defeats the entire purpose of joining somewhere. If it is busy there is no point, might as well play public golf and play a variety of courses. I couldn't imagine joining a place, paying monthly dues, and then fighting for tee times.
  14. I'm hoping for more 270 colors. But not banking on it, they don't seem to be all that popular.
  15. I've played a lot of courses in this thread - Bethpage, Erin Hills, Kiawah, Carnoustie, The Castle Course, PGA West, Whistling Straits etc. None beat me up like the Pfau Course at Indiana University. Idk if it was bad luck or what, but I felt like I was scrambling to save my butt on every hole. Most frustrated I've ever been on a course.
  16. Yes, you are correct I misspoke. Misremembered and was thinking it was like Whistling Straits model. Though, $240 double bagging is $60 +/- an hour. I just don't think there should be any guess work. I get tipping for exception quality, but why not just say what is expected. Every caddie I have spoken too at Kiawah expects $100 and nothing more and nothing less. That is also what Kiawah employees will tell you to tip. My point is, don't leave it up to the customer to do the right thing. Say it is $120 or whatever the expected minimum is, not $100 plus tip. Gives the caddie the chance of getting stiffed.
  17. This is the only negative about Bandon. Do like places like Kiawah Ocean Course - 100 bucks he/she gets it all. No guess work, no low balling etc. Simplify the entire process.
  18. You edit your post when you realized I wasn't going to beg you to stay like you thought? Though that is helpful, I need a new white/blue shoe.
  19. I'm not one to get into physical altercation but I'd be close to fighting a 70 year old if that happened to me lol. Unreal.
  20. It provides nothing to the forum to say "I know what they look like but Im not telling"
  21. Actually a decent lay out and really cool green complexes... But yea, for me not worth the drive. The one time I went I booked online and when I got there the guy was like "Ugh we have league, there are no tee times". I ended up going off the back with a college team that was practicing which was kind of awkward to start. No sorry, refund, free snickers etc. Condition wasn't terrible when I went, sounds like they've given up.
