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: “Charley Hoffman’s custom Scotty Cameron putter”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Charley Hoffman’s custom Scotty Cameron Putter. The putter, which Hoffman used recently at the QBE shootout, has quite a nostalgic feel to it, although it appears the majority of our members are not too enamored with the new flatstick.

Check out the full thread and all of the photos here.

Here is what some of our members have been saying about Hoffman’s putter, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Meanmachinemoe: “Hoping this is a preview of his 2019 line-up so I won’t be tempted. UGLY!”
  • evansmar004: “The top is not good looking….but I love walking the Scotty dog”
  • cxx: “You guys are funny.  The only beauty in a putter is how many putts find the bottom of the cup.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “What is your favorite ‘Tour Issue’ club of all time?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from pmurph#3, who asks fellow members what their favourite Tour Issue club of all time is. Despite these clubs not featuring in your local golf store, it doesn’t stop our members from getting their hands on them, and in the thread, we see plenty of rare clubs mentioned.

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.

  • mosesgolf: “The 300 Tour and then the R510 DF (no TP logo on toe underline half line) in respective order.  These two drivers imo kicked off the “Tour” craze. I still have the Adams “Peanut” hybrid which is the best hybrid I’ve ever played.”
  • 300_yard_drives: “Secret tour issue Callaway apex di and I still have mine. Asian Tour rep didn’t even know it existed. I have only seen it in one other person’s bag personally, and that was Jaime Sadlowski.”
  • cardoustie: “I gotta go with 510df, that to me started the whole tour issue thing. I did get a TI driver at one time … 580 xd tp IIRC, but I hooked it off the planet.  Must have had loads of hot melt in the heel.  And it wasn’t just me; even my +3 buddy couldn’t hit it straight.  Too bad as the feel was exceptional.”
  • cgasucks: “The Titleist 970 FW.  This is the one that Tiger used as his three-wood in his prime.  Very hard to get then…and very hard to get now.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Zach Johnson splits with caddie”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day was started by imakaveli, who began the thread regarding Zach Johnson’s split with long-term caddie Damon Green. The two men had been together for over 15 years, and after Green admitted that he was “shocked” when Johnson told him the news, our members discuss the possible reasons behind the break-up of their relationship.

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.

  • iBanesto: “ZJ’s 2018 form has been quite underwhelming. Plenty of top 25’s but not many top 10’s.”
  • Holy Moses: “Getting fired sucks, but I’d have to think that Damon has enough money to retire if he wanted to right now. The majority of caddies can’t say that.”
  • shoot4par: “Like most relationships (in life) depending on the level of success and shelf life good things die. People change and in business, if the relationships become unhealthy and jeopardize friendships…. then it’s time to go.”
  • IVM: “Caddie ain’t going to make any difference just wait and see.”
