"I like Grove Park and $50 seems like a perfectly reasonable price to me, with greens that likely roll better than the Muni. But I am but one voice among many."

" Great and interesting comments on all these aspects and I expect not the last. The central theme seems to be that anything that can make our game more enjoyable is fair play.  Not mentioned is the number of clubs. I like that many of the…"

"Gary,  You're correct that the grooves on many of the repro irons tend to be more efficient for drawing moisture and debris from the clubface upon impact adding to backspin, the ball construction makes a Huge difference.  It requires…"

"Henry, I nominate you for sainthood.  You're a blessing to this association.  You'll probably get the opportunity to play Lenoir before I do given the 'yardage' differential."

Gary Pomichter replied to bob west's discussion this site

Jeff Stern commented on Christopher J. Deinlein's event DANVILLE CC in JUNE
"  Played Danville a few years ago.  Challenging layout.  Quite fair from the tee.  Demanding green complexes.  Great clubhouse.  Will do what I can to get there for this event.  How about the rest of you?"

Jeff Stern replied to Henry Allen Pfeiffer's discussion Come to the mountains in August
"  A suggestion- Consider an outing at the Lenoir Country Club in Lenoir, NC. It's on the west side of town and north of Hickory via Rt. 321.  Very reasonable rates. Quite possibly the last layout Donald Ross personally visited before…"

 I used to like this site for the give and go about yardage and clubs and other somewhat contentious issues. It seems to be now just a bulletin board for events. Is this what it wants to be or are…Continue

Equipment Help

Hello, I just joined the group last night and am looking forward to playing. I love the tradition and history of the game. Does anyone know of a good source of hickory clubs other than the bay? Swap meets etc.. possibly in NC?

Thanks

Evan Mickle

I am overwhelmed by the response to our tragic loss. The outpouring of wishes, food, labor, contributions,etc is beyond comprehension. Thank you all.

An anvil too soon silenced. My son Evan died today. The son any parent would wish for, the husband and father too good to be true, the dedicated farrier all horses dream of, went out to work around his new farm and for no apparent reason just died.

To lose a parent is to lose touch with…

Back injury -- any advice?

While in Scotland, I hurt my back for the first time in my golfing career.  It started suddenly in the lower right back, which put me on the ground, and eventually worked it way across the rest of my lower back. Afterward, I tried to play but couldn't really turn through the ball consistently without feeling sharp pain.  I want to get the back ready for Mid-Pines. So far I have gotten a deep tissue massage,which helped, and will get some more, am taking 800 mg Motrin each, will see an…

Roaring Gap a Hit Again

Jay Harris once again hosted a wonderful Hickory event at Roaring Gap CC. The course is a treat to pay using hickories and the greens are terrific. Weather was perfect for the 24 players and this is something you should not miss next September. Thanks to Jay for all his efforts.
