Most golfers I know take a golf trip from time to time.  Some take one every year.  It’s usually a group of the same guys, maybe college buddies getting together once a year or your regular foursome that goes to a different location once each summer.  But I read recently in Golf Digest about the [...]

Pre-owned Golf Balls Or Not?

Well golfers, I thought I’d talk about saving money at golf.  Something that many golfers don’t worry about as they chase that elusive “better golf swing”.  But one of the things that drives me crazy is the prices on golf balls.

Where did this golf tradition start?

Golf Nut, where did the tradition of buying a round of drinks for other golfers when you make a hole in one originate. It seems that it would be the other way around. I’ve been playing golf for a few years now and find this interesting.
