I played Inniscrone up in Avondale two weeks ago, what a farging great course.  It's cheap, and probably the most challenging course i've played. 

Only problem is halfway thru i felt some pain in my left elbow, i farging gave myself golfers elbow, and have to play in a golf tourney Thursday.  Luckily there will be kegs at every hole.

the chair force base i'm on has intramural golf every thursday.  $10 for the cart and that's it.  no green fees and they give you free breakfast. 

only problem is that they tee off at 630am.  i'd need to be waking up around 430 to make it in time.

one of my coworkers is former airforce, and said he played every day down in SC at the AFB course, it was 12 bucks a day.  Every time i go out its so damn expensive between the course prices around here, and me drinking.

normal fees on this base are about 15 for greens and then 10 for the cart.....which is still pretty cheap.  other bases i've played on have been anywhere between 20 and 40 for green fees + whatever they charge for cart.  alot of bases also tend to charge green fees based on pay grade as well.   

as much as i hated living in nc, camp lejeune's golf course was absolutely gorgeous.  challenging but at the same time, great for beginners as well.

how much did you pay for it?  i saw it at a couple local golf shops for about $200 but you can pick one up at dick's for $130.

i think i'm going to give my current set about 2 more years before i look at replacing it.  i just started playing in 07 and i picked up a set from the exchange on base for about $120.  some brand i never heard of......affinity i believe it's called.  some of my golf buddies who have been playing a lot longer than me have taken a few swings with them and say that they're great clubs considering the price i paid.  i assume they're just trying to find a polite way of telling me i've got some cheap ass clubs though. 

so what's the best way to go......buying clubs by the set or individually building your bag?

i bought a starter set, and this driver is my first upgrade because i had confidence in the driver that came with it.  but irons and shtein don't really matter unless you're good enough to make them matter. 

i paid 129.99...it hits great.

nice.  what i've been thinking about doing is first getting the clubs that didn't come in my set.  i don't have a sand wedge or a 2-4 iron. 

and i think i'm going to throw out all of my woods except the driver.  i just can't seem to cleanly hit my 3w or 5w unless i'm on the tee.  and the hybrid that came in my bag is probably better suited for clubbing baby seals than golf balls.

so basically once i tee off, i'm probably going straight to my 5 iron even if i'm still 250 yds from the green.

I have an Affinity sandwedge, its really nice.  I use knockoff Callaways i got from a local golf outlet http://www.turingolf.com/  They get the clubs from the same factory as the originals, except they dont have the big brand names on there. 

We had a betterball tourney yesterday, shot as a group a 80.  The Ducks Unlimited Tourney was at the course next to my work, its nice to be shteinfaced at 11am knowing i'm within 1000yds or work.  http://www.deerfieldgolfclub.com/course-tour.cfm

On the 10th hole, i absolutely murdered a ball off the tee, ended up driving it over 340yds.  My uncle just gave me his old Taylormade Driver from 5 years ago.  For years i went without a driver mainly because i couldnt control my drives.  After shoulder surgery my surgeon said my drives would lose about 10yds but they would be straight, and he was right.

Knock-offs suck. 

I have Taylor Made Tour irons with rifle shafts, and driver & three wood with graphite shafts.  The five and seven woods are from Goldwin Golf.  It's a shame that company went out of business because they made the best fairway woods I've ever played with. 

My putter is an Odyssey Rossie Mallet and much like me it rules all creation.

I haven't played in months.  I was an 8 handicap in my 20's, though.  Played five days a week minimum.
