Already got my 5 bags of potato chips, couple gallons ice cream, 88, yes 88, pizza rolls and 18 cookies. Serious junk out for sure, hopefully trying not to start tonight. 

This guy was on the course the other day  

I am not really big on tooting my own horn, but feel a bit more comfortable doing it in this thread.    I really pushed myself last week with the walking. The weather was nice and I wanted t

On the camera thing here in the USA and in certain states that kind of enforcement brings on Constitunal law issues. It is a can of worms no wonder the good old USA has more lawyer to people ratio than any where else in the world.


 No constitutional law problems in Australia, the state governments can do almost anything they like, and they do.

Another reason I don't engage in social media like FaceBook, Instagram, SnapChat, etc. Between that, CCTV, being able to track your vehicle, etc., privacy is becoming a thing of the past. Heck, last year I was on the 10th hole and a drone was hovering in the area, lol. 


Drones seem to be a problem everywhere now and in Australia it is illegal to shoot them down, been caught many times perving on people sunbathing in their own back yard.

These days anytime you're outside......or inside (away from home) you should just assume you're on camera and

behave accordingly. But you can bet your bippy that if you make a hole in one you'll never see it on video....but

the video does exist........somewhere................................so you run into the clubhouse and ask to see the video

and they're like "WTH are you talking about? Call Google and see if one of their satellites caught it"....so you call

Google and they say what course and hole was it on?" So you tell them and they say "no, that's not us, call Larry's

Drone Service". So you call Larry's and they ask you what date you made the hole in one. You give them the date

and Larry comes on the phone and says Billy was out sick that day and the drones weren't flying the course.

Played 9 four days last week. The two things i became aware of:

#1:  it really feels good to be hitting golf balls again.

#2:  The "Proper dress on the course" group on here would go crazy seeing what

       the younger generation are wearing while teeing it up !  I played on 4 different

       courses, and i saw tennis shorts, basketball shorts, muscle shirts, cut off jeans, and many many hats worn backward !

 While I didn't care, it did make me think of the proper attire brigade on WRX !


I think it is important to have some standards but some courses go overboard, we have a relatively local course that will only allow you to play wearing club socks. If you do not have them you have to buy them and wear them before teeing off, if you do not you do not play. 
 

suffice to say as a Griller I have never been there.

 

We were on holiday in Queensland and by the resort we were staying at there is a golf course located on an island half mile off shore. There is a regular free ferry to the island. We wanted to go over just to walk on the beach not to go in the club house, they would not let us on the ferry because we were not in the clubs dress code. We objected and said we only wanted to walk but as this is the only ferry and the club is up itself big time we could not go. Already on the ferry was a young man dressed in the most inappropriate golfing gear you can imagine, when we pointed him out to the driver he shrugged his shoulders and turned away
 

As far as we could find out the club does not own the island, but still act as if they do.
