Golf

Who plays? How often do you play? I've been wanting to go play more and more, especially since I'm trying to cut down my playing of impact sports.

I have a set of Nickent clubs. I go to the range about once or twice a week and I've gone golfing 3 times this year. I would want to go more, but it's expensive and I don't know who to go with all the time.

I wouldn't mind getting out with a few of bums who golf. I'm not very good at all. I can't drive worth a lick, so I use my hybrid 3 off the T. That way, I'll usually get about 200 straight yards without a slice on my drive. Would anyone be interested in going to some cheap course and playing 9 with a cart? Sorry, I can't walk cause my knees.

I'm a 2 handicap, but I don't golf much anymore so in reality I'm probably a 5 or 6. If anyone in the Logan area wants to go this summer hit me up. I'm game anytime.

I used to love playing golf growing up. I used to be a monster off the tee, but never could figure out the short game. I have many 360+ drives and have driven or over-shot many par 4's in my day.

Now a days? I hate golf. I don't have the patience or time to get better, so it just becomes a frustrating couple of hours. I went once or twice last year against my better judgement, and I am not planning on ever playing again. I truly do loath it.

Since I got home from my mission (13 years this summer) I have golfed a grand total of once. I literally could throw the ball straighter and a hell of a lot further than I could hit it. I have no interest in going again.

I have tried it once as well. I sucked so bad, and disliked it so much, I threw my club as far out onto the course and I could and left it there. The guide was pissed. He went to go get it and I went to my car and left.

I want to start playing golf again. I started in middle school, but quickly got bored of it and quit. I was actually a decent player. Had a mean driving game.

1. Yes if you mean hacking at the little white dimpled thing thinking if that little ball had a pair of balls I would so hit you in them of course that implies actually hitting the ball.
2. Try to go often which equals 1-4 times a year but last few years lucky to go once.
3. I go wherever the person(s) I go with calls to setup a tee time.

Seriously though I started in 2000 and I swear I was better then than I am now. Definitely was a better driver but I guess my chipping is the only thing really improved the rest I'm sure I'm worse at. Coincidentally I believe I'll be going the next weekend with a friend coming up from Vegas (he's the one that taught me to golf) I think we'll likely go to the one off 90th and I-15 believe it's called River Oaks (reaches almost to 106so by Mulligans) that or maybe the one off the I215 6200so exit believe it's called Oldmill.

*edit, the one I've probably been to most in WVC by Hunter High believe it's West Ridge is doing renovation or something so it's closed or we might go there*

I play. Hobble Creek being my favorite spot. That's my therapeutic - get away from all civilization and hack up a storm - course. It's magic.

Love playing and was the girls' golf coach for one year. Got a hole in one at Riverbend a few years ago (#3 I think). Football, track, and drivers ed have hurt the game for sure (otherwise being a teacher would work well with golfing). Networking has opened up a lot of tournament options but just don't have the time usually.

Love Hobble Creek but played mostly Spanish Oaks when I lived down there.

Now in Draper I play mostly Riverbend if I got the choice. Not very good now (never was). Probably around an 18 as a guess.

Golf is the best. My favorite job was when I worked at a course for a summer. Golf is a great getaway with friends when you are married and have kids. Plus if you can get fairly good at golf you can keep busy during retirement and it's fun to play new courses on vacation.
