Joined a Dog Track


Recommended Posts

Save the water for my scotch and put a little less on my firm fairways....I always say! Enjoy yourselves and golf your ball wherever you and your wife have the most fun. Save a few bucks and take her out to dinner more often. I know that would make my wife happy.

Best thing that ever happened to me was when they closed my old track. I was sad at the time. Joined across the street which I knew every one there the owners and all. It is sorta a borderline Goat Track but I love it. Fantastic Layout the is compatible to both regular and vintage play. Reminds me of the muni type courses I grew up on. Love the local flavor and the way I am treated over there. Fantastic staff and people that play there. I was over there briefly in 08 when my home course ticked me off. I have had so much fun since I joined there in December. I told my bud the GM / Pro / Co Owner I wished I had stayed when I was there in 08. Being a member fantastic rates and they have the best grill room / golf course kitchen on the beach. And actually before this virus thing it was the type of place people hung out and shot the breeze either inside or on the patio. Like I told my GM bud the other day for me it ain't about the fancy frills and gimmicks it is all about the general atmosphere there. Since I have retired I have played a whole lot there and love every minute of it

What is funny these guys are the regular members of my shoot out team------ But it is all in fun ---- Lately no one has been showing up for the Dog Fight as we call it so I guess so to speak I guess we are fighting among our selves---- On the Dog fight days we go around making small bets among some teams. The ones that had been winning it will not play us straight up for any amount. We do not care about winning the overall thing because the prizes are not all of that but for $20 you get free drinks and a sorta little breakfast and a decent lunch. One of they guys was talking about he won a dozen Srixon Soft Feels the other day. One of my partners quipped well we made enough on side bets to buy 3 dozen each of those balls. Then he added it is still early and no one is out here why don't you guys play our team straight up for $50 a man? No takers. Ya know where their scores come from ------ a sharp pencil!! Our gang as we call them are playing at 1:00 this afternoon. We will cook up something among ourselves all in fun

Naaw we do not do the rabbit or the breakfast ball--- There are a couple of dog leg left holes . I can not roll it over and control, it enough to turn the leg with my standard cut. I have my solution I tee it low and hit my Stuey Stinger cut straight at the tree on the corner. The one hole I can take it between the 150 marker and the trees and hit a modified snap roll hook but when I get it to hooking there is no telling where or when it is going to stop or end up. The way this course is designed and the fairways are hard and sparse you can actually hit a good drive in the middle of the fairway and get a bad kick into trouble. Had that happen to me on #9 yesterday hit left side of fairway with a baby cut. It hit the ground and took off tumbling into a fairway bunker 40 yards away. But that is one of the things that makes this course fun to play kinda like playing Carnoustie when it is hard and burned out. I played this course quite a bit 20 years ago when it was in top notch shape and I swear it is more fun playing it now in border line goat ranch status.

Depends on what part of the good old USA you are from--- Basically in the South where I am from we call them either Goat ranches or Cow pastures. Also some folks refer to the game of golf as Cow Pasture Polo. I actually heard that last term used in Wisconsin many years ago

Sounds like my kind of course.

My home course is the course at the local military base. Built in the 40's, old school layout, made to walk. Also designed for when golf was played with persimmon woods and blade irons, so I appreciate using my vintage set there. Par 71, kept in decent shape, only about 6,200 yards, but just fine for my group. We all shoot in the mid to low 70's there. Not sure if my scores will be that good now that I've gone to a vintage set, but that's okay. Probably wouldn't shoot that low at a more modern longer course.

Hit em good
