I play quite a bit, although still not very good (index of 16.5). One of my favorite weeks of the year is a guys golf trip in April where we play 36 holes for 5 days straight. Add in gambling and booze (sry Romes, no hookers and blow), and it combines for a great weekend. This yeat it conflicts with the WOV spring meet-up, which is why I won't be there.

There's no way in hell I would award someone money for willingly participating in something like this.

I play golf, but it is sometimes toooooo boring. Even golf betting is dull. Maybe it isn't mine)) I prefer something more extreme like casino, slots.



Pretty sure I enjoy the social aspect, and much would be missing without it. Even joining on with another group of strangers as a solo can be fun.

Otherwise, it would be like playing blackjack completely alone, in a grassy field, and losing most of time as well.

You see Uncle, that's why you aren't running the Playboy enterprises. You pay the gal to hit golf balls OFF her butt, (wasn't IN her butt, some of the headline is misleading). Doesn't have to be alot of money, just nuf to get old men excited about teeing up on her cute butt. Fairly simple actually. 'Course there's several different ways this could go really bad in a hurry....;-)

<edit> should prolly be entered into evidence in the appropriate venue that $500,000 is way above the going rate one pays to hit a bunny in the butt with a golf club ( at least that's what I've been told by 'trusted' sources ,-)
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

Lying in bed with my wife this morning, I asked "so what's it gonna be . . . morning sex, or I'll play golf?"

Wife answered "don't forget your rain gear."

Just played with SOOPOO down here in the Tampa area
We played at Quail Hollow
About 70 bucks total including online booking fee.
Not bad, 35.00 a player for 18 and a cart 9AM Saturday tee time
Good deal we thought till we got on the course
Not very well kept up.
Not a lot of grass on the PAR 3 tee boxes
The greens had all types of ugly weed spots. Smooth but very ugly looking.
I've seen better looking greens at really cheap courses.
Unlike me, SOOPOO got game. Was quite impressed. He was easily under a 100
I of course did not keep score since I shoot well over a 100.
I am always willing to play golf with any forum member visiting the Tampa area as long as you can put up with my terrible game :-)

For a minute, I was seriously surprised - both at the cost and the reported condition.

Then I looked online, and noticed that the Quail Hollow that I am thinking of (home of next year's PGA Championship) is in Charlotte, not Tampa. Apparently, the one in Charlotte is "members only," unlike, say, Pebble Beach, where anybody with $535 has a chance to play the course.

I haven't played in over a year because of some issues that I was having with my back. I had some procedures done and tomorrow is my first test of my back on the golf course. Hopefully I can make it through at least one round without doing any more damage.

5mg of Ox and a doubler of Crown. It's amazing how much better you play when you don't hurt. Also reduces number of clubs thrown.

Went just once this year after at least two years off. Shot 100 and only threw the pitching wedge one time. Meant to toss it up to the fringe but actually sent it full over the green and into the next tee box, like 3 times further than intended. It's amazing how far you can throw when you don't hurt.
