I know we have to have some Golfers on this site. If not, its never too late to pick up a club. Going to buy a new set of Irons today, looking hard at Callaway Steelhead XR Pros, and Taylormade M1's. I can only speak for NY/LI courses for this current season, but Marine Park is in great shape at the moment, as is Lido Beach. Dyker is okay, but I never really like Dyker to begin with, so Im a little biased. Bethpage is always in phenomenal shape, and they changed reservations for NON - N.Y. residents from 2 days to 5 days, so much better shot for non residents to get a good tee time. Also Marine Park has great midweek specials for 30$ including cart. Playing Wind Watch next week, which has one of the best practice facilities Ive ever seen at a public course. Will post on condition.
