I'd let my wife caddie.
I don't like bossy girlfriends. I had one once and I did the exact opposite of what she told me to do every time. Drove her insane and was really satisfying. She was the world's worst rebound.

I wish I had the balls to do that last month. Instead I just cut the ropes... You rock.

It was a not so awesome time in my life. She had a really comfortable couch though.

I have been married since 1978 and I do what I want when I want, all except for doing the pokey with strange. If she tried to tell me not to play I would be laughing all the way to the first tee.

Wow this is a tough situation your in. For people who aren't married its easy to say golf but I have been married for 9 years and I understand this all too well. I just started playing in March and I got the bug bad. I was out 5-6 times a week. The only time I wasn't out is when I had softball games and then I would go to a night range afterward. My wife basiclly said I forgotten everything else (including our 3 boys). I bought her and our 7 year old a set of clubs and they went out with me for a month or so but appearantly she said I was mean and not patient on the course. I say there are rules and a pace of play that must be followed and she hasn't been back out with me. One of our boys is on the high school football team. Our 7 year old is on the might mites team. I want them to do well and encourage them but alot of their games are during my golf times. She sat me on our deck a few weeks ago and said golfing 6 times a week cannot come before the children and her. She said she feels like a single parent. As much as I love this game (and I really love golf) I love my family more. I told her I would cut down a little. I am only out about 3 times a week now and I told her when softball ends and from November till March I will only go out once ar twice a week. I feel like I am sacrificing a little of what I love but I know she has sacrificed a lot for me over the years. You have been married alot longer than I and your children are grown so you might be in a different spot now in your life but for me, I cut down. Also I agree with others going out 2-3 times a week and seeing your handicap go up a few strokes is not that significant unless you want to turn pro and make a living at it. Good luck.

I have a 15 year old at home still, they both hate golf so I have it to myself and they don't seem to mind. It is harder when you have small children at home, there is just a lot more to do and sure I can see curtailing golf for their sake. But not because the wife is naggy about it.
