OK, CAC had the idea to (re)-introduce ourselves. I'll start. If you have links to the courses you tend to play, that would be nice to post as well. That way we can get some visual into the members.
I've been playing golf since about 1985. So going on 31 years now I guess. I've just turned 50 this year and actually feel like in the last couple years, I've learned more about golf and the golf swing, and course management than i did in many of those 31 years. Handicap through the years has been trimmed down to a low of 3.9 (last year) but now is about 6 and creeping up as I continue to try and make swing changes. Lowest score ever was 71 on a Par 70. Never had a hole-in-1. Got close, but never made it.
I live in North Carolina, in the central Peidmont, about an hour North of Charlotte, NC. I can golf about all year long, winters arent usually too bad. Typical weather ranges from 40's in the winter to 90's in the summer. Lots of sun. And for me, I'm about 3.5 hrs north west of Golf Mecca known as Myrtle Beach, SC. over 100 courses there, including some great ones like TPC @ Myrtle Beach, Thistle, Tidewater (ranked usually in the Top 100 you can play!).
My home course is Tanglewood Park, ( http://golf.tanglewoodpark.org/outings.aspx ) which has 2 courses, one of which has a pretty sweet past with the PGA tour. It hosted the 1974 PGA Championship, and then later hosted theSenior Tour's Vantage Championship ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RJR_Championship ) which was won by the likes of senior tour stars Hale Irwin, Lee Trevino, and Jim Colbert. Arnold Palmer used to come here, and I recall seeing him once.
The 1974 PGA Championship was the 56th PGA Championship, played August 8–11 at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, North Carolina, a suburb southwest of Winston-Salem. Lee Trevino won the first of his two PGA Championships, one stroke ahead of defending champion Jack Nicklaus. It was the fifth of Trevino's six major titles and Nicklaus was the runner-up to Trevino in a major for the fourth and final time. It was the first year since 1969 in which Nicklaus did not win a major championship, but he regained the title the following year.
Three-time champion Sam Snead, age 62, finished tied for third for his third consecutive top ten finish in the event. It was the final major in which he was in contention, his next best finish was a tie for 42nd at the PGA Championship in 1979.
Also enjoy playing some other local courses like Oak Valley (http://www.oakvalleygolfclub.com/) which is where my instructor is (http://www.golfwithannemarie.com); Salem Glen (http://www.salemglen.com/); A fun one nearby (an hour away) is also a tough one , and very unique. Tobacco Road (http://tobaccoroadgolf.com/course/) - named one of the top 10 hardest courses in the US. Here's a review (http://breakingeighty.com/tobacco-road-golf-club). Oh yeah, the famed Pinehurst #2 is an hour away and I've played it twice..best score 88.
So that's enough from me. Hopefully others will chime in as well.
