He's played all of those since July 15.
I get it, you are mad at the world because you are an adult caddie and few people take you seriously.

Excellent spellers usually lack any vision or common sense.

I know plenty of courses that are in the red, and they are killing it.

Sean,

Not following the quirk comment? Equinox was fun, but we played in awful weather. We pushed back to the back tee box regardless of where the tees were to stretch it out.

Stemming from Mac's recent thread, someone made the comment that most of the folks on here generally play average courses.  


Sven,

I'm going to go out on a limb after these past 4 pages and say that whoever made the comment that "folks on here generally play average courses" was mistaken.

Or perhaps those that do play average courses have no interest in posting with these lists that seem to all include the best courses in the country.

I would hope that people on this site aren't posting their last ten to boast.  Surely we have more intellectual integrity than that!   ;D

Just that you played some good courses that have serious quirk (a good thing).

Ben,

Sadly for most of us, while great courses are in our last 10 courses played, I expect great courses make up less than 20% of our last 100 rounds played.

I, like many here I expect, have played some great courses is the last 10 courses but of the last 100 rounds only about 5 have been on truely great courses.

Happily there are no bad courses on my list and I would expect 85 of my last 100 rounds were on above average courses. Sadly, I do not get to play TOC or North Berwick every week.

Ben,

I actually posted my last ten courses played according to my handicap posts (plus three rounds which were part of an all day match-play match with friends). What I've lacked in quantity (my ten date back to May I believe) this year I've certainly made up in quality as I've been exploring my new home state. Lots and lots of interesting and solid golf courses up here in Minnesota.

So no, I wasn't trying to boast a la the idiotic "whip it out" thread, however to prove the point of a wise, long time GCA poster when he said his motto is "life is too short to play bad golf courses" :)
H.P.S.
