Default Any golfers on the Tryst ?

Good day everyone !!

Does anyone here play golf ? I'm just starting to get into it, and it's really quite fun. The ball never goes where I want it, but haha with some time it might get somewhat close to the hole

For now I try to get out to the driving range once or twice a week. Picked up a good set of clubs, some shorts / polos and I'm in business.

Just like getting to Carnegie Hall, golf requires lots of practice, practice, practice. Most importantly, have fun with it because it can become easily frustrating.

You will find that everyone is an expert and wants to offer coaching advice which just ends up being noise. Tune them out. Spend time at your local driving range to work on perfecting your skills with each of the different clubs.

Old thread but I just went golfing last week for the first time in probably well over 5 years. Didn't do too badly either. We played 18 holes for $47 with a cart. Not too bad. Didn't even keep score since we played as a threesome scramble.

It has been a while since I played golf, last time was last year right around this time. I have a love hate relationship with golf. It starts off being fun and then turns in to a why the F%&k and I doing this.

A good golf day to me is playing 9 holes and then hanging out at the 19th hole while everyone else finishes up.

Have you been to Top Golf yet? Now that is what I cann fun golfing.

I've been golfing once a week for the last month or so now, and I still suck badly haha

I just go to have fun. I always usually golf 18 holes, but this Tuesday I'm doing 9.

My clubs ( had these for a LONG time now ) -
