    Joining a Private Club - What Would You (Should I) Ask?

    We joined a public course this year and could not be more disappointed with the experience. Pro shop manager is a giant a-hole (club pro is super great), abysmal pace of play, no tee times available between 2pm and 6:30/6:45pm Mon-Thu due to leagues, course conditions are very meh...

    Any CPAs? Non-Profit Question

    I'm pretty sure I've seen some CPA's posting around here but 3 letters is too short to search :) Looking to bounce a quick question off someone re: compiled financial statement prep for my non-profit. We're eligible to file a 990-N so we don't need anything fancy for the tax man but as we're...

    "Respect (of) the Game"

    I've seen this thrown around in discussions when it comes to things like following the rules to the letter to dress code to behavior and everything in between. Do you subscribe to the school of "respect (of) the game"? If so, what does it mean to you exactly?

    Charity Golf Outings & On-Course Games: Yay or Nay?

    I am in the very early stages of planning my first charity golf outing. I've played in a ton of these over the years and I know it's going to be impossible to make everyone happy. I just want to create an event that people enjoy, look forward to so much that they put it on their calendars a...

    5th Annual Golf-A-Thon Fundraiser...(pics)

    Way overdue posting this...haven’t been very active on the forums this season for a variety of reasons. As I’ve done the past 4 years I decided to raise money for Head & Neck Cancer Research at the UW Carbone Cancer Center. Why so specific? For those that don’t know (I suspect this is a...

    Lefty Fitting Conundrum

    All the fitters I've been able to find in my area only offer a few (2-3) left-handed brands, and only a couple different models from each brand. Might be a dumb question (and I'm a tad embarrassed to even ask) but are "standards" for length/lie the same across OEMs? I get so envious when I see...

    Free Bushnell Tour v2 Rangefinder

    I'm upgrading and don't need this anymore. I just want it to go to a good home. If you are interested in taking this off my hands only to and flip it for cash behind the scenes here or on eBay or on Craigslist I obviously can't stop you but I do believe in karma.... The unit works perfectly...

    Shoutout to Bushnell Customer Service

    Several years ago my in-laws gave me a tour v2 laser for Christmas. A couple seasons ago I noticed that a piece of fuzz made its way into the unit at around the 9 o'clock position inside the unit. It's fully functional but it's pretty annoying. I emailed them about sending it in to get it...

    Your Top 1 or 2 Golf Books

    I am not much of a reader but I just returned from a 2 week vacation and read a few golf books on the planes and trains. Looking for recommendations on what to read next. I'm not looking for anything instruction-related (for now). What are you 1 or 2 "don't miss" books???

    10th Annual Heads Up! Outing for Cancer Research

    On Monday, my buddies and I participated in the 10th annual Heads Up! golf outing to benefit the Head and Neck Cancer Research Fund at UW Carbone Cancer Center. This event is near and dear to me since I was diagnosed in 2013. I was too slow to sign us up in 2014 (it fills up VERY quickly) but...

    My Annual Golf-A-Thon Report (118 holes)

    I thought I would share this with all the folks here. Today is the 3rd anniversary of my cancer surgery (squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue). On the 1st anniversary in 2014 I decided to do a fundraising golf-a-thon to raise $$ for the cancer center here at UW that performed the surgery. I...
