Forum Thread of the Day: “Best Country Club amenities?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from regiwstruk, who asks fellow GolfWRX members what the best country club amenities are that they have experienced. Plenty of different and very cool facilities get a mention, and the thread gives an excellent insight into the little things that can genuinely enhance a golfers day out.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • burnsniper: “Hands down the best amenity is Child Care.  Our club will watch the little ones for up for 3 hours per day at no charge.  Gives you plenty of time to play nine (or more) or to go to the gym or a nice meal with the wife/friends.”
  • defnotapro: “Live in Texas and one of the simplest things, but don’t see it that often, is ice towels on the course. Especially when it’s over 95 and humid in Houston. I’ve learned just to throw a towel in the ice chest but would be really nice if they were on the course.”
  • ratspros: “A creative chef that can come up with amazing weekly and daily features is key. Nothing worse than ordering off the exact menu in the summer as you would in the spring or the fall.  You go from boring and almost regretting having to eat to excited for something fresh and different. In my opinion behind a great supper, the next most important position at a great club is the chef, even above the head professional.”
  • roadking2003: “I played Stonebriar in Dallas several years ago, and they had a cigar room.  That was wonderful.”

    The course, Gianni you moron.
    It doesn’t matter what the clubhouse is like, if the course is xhyte.
    I don’t care about the clubhouse, the foods, the drinks, the bar. None of it.
    It’s all about the course, how the course is laid out and maintained and how the club cares for it.

    A cigar room? So you can douche out with other douche bags?

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best budget driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Ivyguy who is on the lookout for the best driver to be had at an affordable price ($300 or less). Our members give their suggestions, with plenty of different drivers getting a mention.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tbsbama: “Cobra King LTD is a wonderful driver. The pro model has lofts from 7 to 10 with fade settings. The regular from 9 to 12 with draw settings. Both heads are absolute bombers and can be found pretty cheap. Best driver I have hit in several years.”
  • zzyzxx33: “I won a Tour Edge EXS Driver, and it has been Awesome! Great Price, Look, Sound and Results! It’s longer than anything else I’ve hit.”
  • AG12: “I would say the regular PING G400…you can get new for $300 on PGA SS website, ’17 M2 is a good choice, and the M4 can be had at under $300 used in most shops.”
  • Badshaft: “I have the F8+ and bought the extra weights off of eBay (inexpensive, shipped from China)- 12g front 7g back- Blue Tensei 70g stiff. Longest for me – straight and as accurate as anything. Nice well-balanced combo. Looks to me it has the same moveable weight strategy as the F9.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Found a unicorn after six years of looking!”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from kgeorge78 who is celebrating his acquisition of “Unicorn” clubs after six years of searching, and I think it’s fair to say that he’s more than a little excited with the purchase:

“BAM! MP53 ALL STOCK S300 NEW IN PLASTIC GRIPS IN PLASTIC!!!!!!!! Just wanted to share my joy.”

Our members have been discussing the clubs as well as their continued search for unicorn clubs in our forums. Check out the full forum thread below to have your say on kgeorge78’s find.

  • flogpro2252: “Funny, I just bought a set of 53s on Kijiji today. Very minty condition (don’t look to have more than 30 rounds on them) w/ KBS Tour stiffs. Can’t wait to give them a go tonight, absolutely great looking irons. Congrats on the purchase OP!”
  • hardcaliber: “I also recently found a nice set of these. Gonna swap out the shafts sometime this summer and give them a run. My all-time favorite irons are the MP-15’s. Between hoarding older classics and the new mp series out later this year, I’ll be spending a lot of money on the running bird.”
  • storms: “Congrats, man. I loved my mp53s before I sold them to my buddy. He still plays them. Honestly still kick myself for getting rid of them some days.”
  • elwhippy: “Two words. Feel. Control. A great set of clubs.”
