  1. Cool Novelty / Custom Headcovers?

    Hi everyone, I've been considering dabbling in non-OEM headcovers & was wondering what others currently have in their bag! I've been looking at various online stores & eBay, but would like any suggestions on places you have purchased yours from. I'd love to see some posted pics if you have any....

  2. Golf NOW

    So, I don't get the value of Golf NOW. A couple of times this past season, I checked their reduced rate against the posted rate at some courses. Each time, it was cheaper for me to buy directly from the course. I recall one time, Golf NOW wanted $75 for 4 people at Thunderbird, but when I called...

  14. Winter Practice

    Where does everyone hit balls in the winter? It seems as though Ben Franklin Dome is only open as a driving range during the week, 9am to 4pm. Well...most people are at work at that time. It is too bad that can't slot in an early weekend time or something. I don't really want to play on a simulator.

  28. Tree in the Fariway

    I never understood why courses place a large tree in the middle of the fairway...leaving you no options. Too large to go over...and I am not talented enough to hook it around the tree. I don't think the typical golfer should have to deal with that obstacle....seems silly.
