Awesome course and they have done a lot of work to get the course back to a top notch course. Plays long nice hard fairways and greens are lighting fast. Satff is excellent and go the extra mile.


 

Summer Golf. It's HELL out there!


July 19th, 2009 by pop g

Summer has arrived with a vengeance with temperatures in the upper 90’s having a huge impact on golf hackers like myself. First, there is the obvious, HEAT! It’ll sap your energy affecting your strength on drives and your concentration on putts. But there are positives & negatives to the summer heat. Let’s start with the positives, the Fairways! The water deprived fairways are hard as a rock. Drives stir up dust on impact and roll for miles. Ok, maybe not miles but at least another 20 yards. Very good for a hacker like myself. Even the sand is hard making iteasy Read more…


 

FreeCaddie Golf GPS Application Review


June 23rd, 2009 by borya

As promised, here is my review of FreeCaddie
for Windows Mobile. First, a disclaimer: I don’t work nor know anyone
associated with the company making this product ;-). So I went to play
Douglaston golf course in queens, ny. Had the course loaded, along with others
from around my area, well in advance. On the first tee it was showing the same
yardage as the marker and there after it was pin point on every hole. On 17th
tee box had a little comparing to the “golf ginnie” and turned out that I had
exact yardage that the ground marker was showing unlike the ginnie which added
few yards.Also Read more…


 

New Book, 'Ultimate Golf Techniques'


May 5th, 2009 by bucky1957

I got this book last weekend, it is essentially 150 pages covering the golf swing. It describes every step in detail, including the way the swing should feel and what to visualize. I got it because it showed how to ‘work the ball’. I figured that if I could learn how to hit a fade or a draw, I could understand why I hit a hook and slice and stop those types of shots. I have yet to go to range to try the techniques outlined in the book. We’ll see if it helps or justmesses Read more…


 

Tiger's Intimidation Factor


April 17th, 2009 by Wade Lewis

On Wednesday before the Masters, my fiance asked me, “Why does it always seem like Tiger comes from behind to win tournaments?”. I simply told her, intimidation. Michael Jordan once said that he never tries to force things, he let’s the game come to him and if your patient, it will happen. Tiger Woods is the same way, he sort of eases his way into a lead. When Tiger Woods is playing behind you both physically and on the leaderboard, the field always has to keep in the back of their minds, “Where’s Tiger”. They becomeintimidated, Read more…


 

The Art Of Putting – Book Review


March 31st, 2009 by mark brookes

For anyone who is looking to update, upgrade or just getting a new putter for the hell of it, I strongly recommend that you first read a copy of “The Art Of Putting” by Stan Utley. This guy teaches many of the top pro’s on putting and short game and is considered by many to be the leading authority on this part of the game. I read his book last year and realized that I had been doing in wrong for the last 36 years. In fact I had never putted correctly ever, yet I had maintained a 10- Read more…

Golf Lessons


February 17th, 2009 by pinky

Today (9/1/08) was my first round after having 3 golf lessons. I’ve played for quite a number of years, and had other lessons, but it’s only been in the last few years that I’ve been able to devote the time to playing each week. At best I’ve been very inconsistent in every facet of my game except for putting. (I’m pretty good at putting – it’s my favorite part of the game!) My iron shots were fairly good and consistent, even overclubbing on some shots. Chipping and pitching are working better, but my driver is now very inconsistent. Off to morelessons!


 

Winter


February 10th, 2009 by Dspeed

Well, winter is here. I already cant stand it. Its cold and I have to shovel snow. The only thing that keeps me on track is the next golfing adventure! This winter I am going to make a concious effort to start getting into the dome and practice. This next season is going to be huge. I figure if Joel can get under 100, it shouldn’t even be an issue for me! I can offically say that I have shovled snow for the first time this winter and i am 1 shoveling closer togetting Read more…
