Lol ! I'm not talking about air mailing a bomb on em', just a low runner to let em' know there are other people on the course and we aren't particularly happy with a sixome holding up the world ... just a friendly yet firm warning shot.
I've done that to some course workers. They were watering a green on a par 3 that we just got on and they wouldn't stop. So I have them a warning shot.... Landed 5 ft from the hole

I feel like I always come on here to ask about courses lol, so I apologize.

Playing the Kahite Tellico course this weekend. Anyone played it? Looks super tough, I know there’s like an 800 yard Par 6. Any other quirks I should know about?

Keep it in the fairway or it will be a long day. Good track but it can play tough if they’ve let the rough grow. I haven’t played it this year but the Greens are usually in great shape.

Not a very long course unless you play from the tips. Edit to add that there are a million beaches scattered out amongst the course so avoid those suckers.

That whole “keep it in the fairway” thing.... that’s a bit of a problem 😂

On my way back from the beach going to stop in Pinehurst. Options right now are Mid Pines or Pine Needles for $180 or Pinehurst #9 for $87. Thoughts?

I couldn’t make this up if I tried. This is beyond unbelievable.

My club has a 6 hole Par 3 course that the kids play a lot. Here’s my 13 year old nephew on Saturday playing the 6th hole.


The crazier part... he played the course again that day and Aced the 2nd hole?!

The truly insane part... I played the course with him again the next day. He Aced the 6th hole AGAIN but from the back tee?!?!

The shots were from 80, 60 and 100 yards all within 24 hours. I really don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this.

Three in 2 rounds is amazing ! Getting ready to turn 55 and haven't had my first ace yet, I've got the albatross, but not the ace even after all these years. So yeah, 3 in 2 days seems like a damn miracle ! Congrats to him !

I had one when I was a teenager at par 3 course but none since. It’s sad it was the shortest hole there too at a measly 45 yards (longest was like 130). I’ve dunked a couple 2nd shots on par 4s and came close to acing a few but that’s about it.
