Evening all,

I was wondering, being a keen golfer myself, do any of you play golf ? If you do, do you have a handicap or just play for fun ?
Whats your best ever scores ?

I play, but not very well. I do not play enough to calculate a handicap, since I usually just go out with friends. My best score over 18 holes, though, is an 87. Not too good, but hey, I'm not a good golfer.  Wink

Yes, I play, but not well. I have some clubs in my closet and they haven't been used in a while because I can't find anyone with whom to play. The only golfer I know is one of the serious types and I just want to play for fun.

I play and am especially inspired since I was given new clubs for my birthday last year. I play with a lot of beer and a lot of hot dogs. Sometimes I hit the ball horribly and cuss up a storm. Sometimes I hit the ball beautifully and cuss up a storm.

I am the only member of my family over 18 who hasn't gotten a hole in one or bowled a 300 game.

Ah. I love it when parking lots get in the way of a perfectly great slice on the 18th hole headed back into the clubhouse.

I myself am an avid golfer. I play with Cobra clubs, with a 350CC King Cobra Driver. They are great clubs for the bigger person with the bigger swing. In case you were wondering I play with Steel Shafts. I like to go out and play once or twice a week. For my age I am considered a good golfer though I am about 10 strokes now I believe it is from actually being in contention. Yes there are actually scratch golfers at the age of 13.

On the Front 9!!!

probably 80 on the back 9 because I'm more inebriated by then.

I'm sorry, but unless you have genuine professional aspirations golf is NOT a game to be taken seriously!! Go out get lit, have a good time, hurt balls, sand traps, make a boatload of divots (replace them of course), hit on the beer chick, get shot down, and go home knowing you accomplished your mission of playing a lousy game of golf while having a boatload of fun!!

Yep, sure do. Just picked up a set of Ping G2 irons, CS Lite Stiff Shaft (steel) to go along with my Cleveland Launcher 400 driver. Shot an 80 yesterday, with only 23 puts (!) at Green River golf course. Usually shoot between 80-85, play once a week - I use to play better in high school! I'm actually making an effort to become good at this game.

Well living in Aruba I am surprised you don't play everyday, I sure as hell would. How do you like the Launcher just out of curiosity. I am just wondering your opinions on that if you don't mind.

Actually if you can shoot that score consistently you would be an above average golfer. Most golfers can't break 90 consisently if they play USGA rules.

I play everyday!  bigthumbsup

Sonartec 3 wood

That's the thing, I don't shoot that consistently. That was just a very good day. Usually, I hit in the upper 90 range, closer to 100.

I've a membership at a local course, have done since I was 14 but because I was at boarding school and didn't have time to play I'd be awful at the start of the easter or summer and then get good at the end. My handicap is 17 which is the average of what I'd shoot over the year. Probably playing to +9/10 at end of summer and more like +25 at beginning.

I played a Par 3 course locally in a Junior Open and shot +2 over 36holes although the par was only 32 and the longest hole about 340yards  Smile The other junior members from my course used to tear up that place in their competitions!

I usually shoot around 100. Playing once or twice a year, that ain't too bad. crazy  I'm pretty straight off the tee, and my short irons are OK, but I can't hit a long iron to save my life, and my putting sucks.

I rememeber about 12 years ago I was playing during the first part of a bachelor party with some old fraternity brothers. I had 3-4 beers by the second hole and I pushed my drive to the right, down a pretty steep hill. I didn't feel like taking the cart path way off to the left, so I rode on down the hill. Well, I dumped the cart, throwing me and my friend out.

Somehow, the cart flipped and missed us, but unfortunately, it righted itself and started chugging toward a water hazard. Yup. 5-6 feet down in the water, flipped over, dumped all of our clubs into the sediment. I went in in my underwear, with beer cans floating across the hazard. I salvaged a few clubs, and then the club manager came out. Of course it had to be a woman, and I'm standing there in my wet tighty whities trying to explain just how much of an idiot I was.

Needless to say, I haven't been back there, but I do stick to the cart paths now!

I play golf whenever I get the chance (which sometimes is far and few between)....but I used to play every day when I was younger. My best score was a 67 on a very difficult course (length was 7300 yds) and it was in a tournament. That was the only time I shot under 70. My handicap, the last time I checked it was either 0 or 1.

I'm a pretty avid golfer - I try to get out at least once a month, if I can. I usually shoot somewhere between par and bogey golf, which is fine for just hacking for fun.

I've got a Callaway Steelhead Plus driver, 5 wood and 7 wood (still looking for a good 3 to bridge the gap) and Cougar irons - upgrading to some newer Callaway ones later this year though.

I played in an informal after-work league for a few months 15 years ago. Mostly I participated because I was able to get out of work two hours early on Mondays  Smile Out of the 20 or so regular participants, I was the cellar-dweller more often than not, but I didn't really care. As for scoring, I think I once got under 50 - for nine holes, needless to say - but usually got in the middle to high 50's. I had a set of clubs I had bought used, though I no longer remember what type.
I stopped participating when I left the job in August 1990, and haven't played since.

Try to play a couple times a month, the most recent of which was this morning. Played Lakewood Country Club in New Orleans. Don't ask what I shot (my handicap is 21, and it wouldn't have done much good)!!!
