    Been playing and hitting balls for about a month now. Just returned from Amelia Island, weather and course conditions were outstanding. Play most rounds at Heritage Hill. Gonna play Friday, fish Saturday, play Sunday and fish Monday. I feel like it's April!

    There's some really dedicated golfers at our local course, Sag Hollow. Yesterday morning at 9:00, with the temperature around 37, there were two guys waiting at the clubhouse door, wearing shorts!

    And we have a couple of elderly members who play almost every day. One is 81 and the other is 71. I was walking my dog early one morning a few weeks ago and they were teeing off at one of our par 3's....and the temperature was 36!!! And with a pretty good breeze at that.

    They love golf way more than I do.

    I know many people who have cussed out Donald Ross in his grave after putting his greens

    I have played a few Donald Ross design courses and they all have tough, undulating greens!

    Booked my first tee time of 17 at Eagle Creek this weekend. Just looking to break 100, and if I don't, at least I'll have plenty of practice for round two.

    Played 54 holes this three day weekend! Loving the weather! Legendary Run's greens were about as fast as I have seen them today. Just rolled them and they were running faster than in June or July! Stonelick Hills' greens were in mid season form this past Saturday as well...

    Was going to play yesterday, but was damp, overcast, cool breeze and only mid-upper 50's till about 4:15, so I didn't play. Then for about 1 1/2 hours it was beautiful and relatively warm.
