After a couple surgeries last year, getting my strength back and golfing again.
The most used club in my bag was the 3 iron
I seem to have better shots using the 4 iron rather then the 3 iron
Ditching the 3 iron and going with the 4 if on the fairway when I need distance

We got a top golf facility in Tampa and just checked it out
Really fun. Combination golf/bar /restaurant/night club
Kind of pricy
Me and a buddy went for lunch and 90 min of hitting balls. Bill came to about 100.00 for both of us



You may not believe me, but I for some reason don't slice nearly as much as when we played. Good to hear you are back to chasing the dimpled balls....

I used to golf twice a week and was probably the worst golfer who golfs twice a week. I haven't golfed in two years now because of health problems. I have a surgery scheduled soon and will probably try golf again after that. Hopefully after full recovery my golf game will be back to it's original terrible state,

I think I can give you some competition in being a terrible golfer
I went out a few days ago to Diamond Hills golf just outside of Tampa
I bogeyed the first 3 holes and was absolutely thrilled.
Usually 2 to 4 shots over par each hole.
Regardless I still love playing

There any cheap places to golf in Vegas? Can I rent clubs n stuff, too?

I golfed a bit when I was a kid, but was too busy to really focus on it and git gud. Although I did spend many hours a day after school just chilling on/near the putting green, just practicing my short game, or whatever you whippersnappers call it these days.

I like Top Golf. No need to chase a ball around a park. I want to play frisbee golf.

If you are willing to golf during the hottest part of the day some courses do a $20 special during the summer. Renting clubs tends to be very expensive. Your best bet is to borrow some or buy a used set at a yard sale.

I knew one guy who put himself thru college on a golf scholarship so he must have been good at it.

I knew of one golfer who when he wanted to kill his wife hired some golf hustlers from his local club. Are the golf hustlers numerous and obvious about their lifestyles? Sort of like pool hall types used to be?

The Mesquite Valley courses are nice, cheap and a good bit cooler to play on. Downside is it is about ninety miles away. Upside is you can get pretty lubricated on the ride, if you aren't driving.
