Pennrose Park - A Donald Ross Gem!

13 Hickory Nuts played at this little known Ross 9 holer this week.  Your captain is admittedly a Ross geek, but I find this course just so much fun and exhibits everything Mr. Ross is known for:  great routing, little if any movement of earth, the holes set perfectly in the terrain, confounding green complexes, and most of all a course that rewards proper strategy.  I love this golf course, and only wish we could fill up the tee sheet when we have an opportunity to play here.  I hope that…See More

Broken shaft

Might have hit 20 balls (35 and 50 compression) with my mashie and the shaft is cracking. What do I do? Buy a new shaft from Louisville golf or rob peter to pay paul? I have another mashie by another club maker. I'd have to plug the pin hole and drill a new one if that is the case. Comments?...
