HEY! You haven't played the MN Majestic then and played highland hills SKI area. They show footage of the pros using the chairlifts. The AMS don't get the pampering. Up and down and again. That was a good workout.
Yea, dont really have that problem with my local courses...

I feel really bad for you btw. lol
Stay more intouch with nature. The Scenery is one of best things about DG. Ball golf courses can be really nice too but DG courses are more natural. Plus when walking through through the course instead of driving a cart one can take time to appreciate it more.
What's ball bolf?
Ratings for players and courses are more accurate than ball golf course ratings and handicaps.
How do you figure?
Because DG ratings for courses and handicaps have been based on real tournament data for 10 years and not artificial calculations that have never been tied to actual scoring for BG course ratings. http://www.pdga.com/faq/ratings/why-is-ssa-dynamic

BG handicaps are based on self reported scores where many people either report only their good rounds if they want a low handicap for bragging rights or only their worst rounds if they want a high handicap for bagging at handicap events. This is not my observation but info directly quoted from the USGA handicap committee that I talked with about their calculations.
yeah, and if a DGer doesn't want a round to lower his rating, sort of "reverse sandbagging", they just DNF.
You make reverse sandbagging sound like a bad thing. It keeps some players in a higher division than their "true" skill level, contributes rating points to the pool when they do complete a round and their DNF score doesn't impact the ratings calcs for the round they DNF'd.
Thanks Chuck :)

8) Offers a great solution for the an alternative use of unused and sometimes abused park space without an environmental impact
