We (my sibs and I) chipped in and got my dad an early father's day gift last year: He loved this.Looking to get my dad a retirement gift and he wants a motorized pull cart for his bag. Can anyone give me a recommendation on which model to go with?
There just aren't very many clubs and the good ones are in the $50-100k down and $650-$1000/mo range. There is one that I know that's reasonable ($8k down/~$500/mo), but for me it would be a nightmare to get there during the week. Within a 30 minute drive of my house (downtown Denver is 15 minutes) there are maybe 5 or 6 clubs and the cheapest is around $50k down last time I asked, which was 6 years ago.If Colorado is worse than NE, then I never want to move to Colorado.
Living in the Midwest was a golfers dream.
We do have a lot of really great public golf here, so that's the flip side of the coin. Even during the hight of the great Covid golf rush you could still walk 18 in under 4.5 hours for between $35-50 generally.“Reasonable” is on a sliding scale too. I meant reasonable for Mass prices, may not be reasonable elsewhere.
Additionally, the public golf here stinks compared to elsewhere. Although I’m golfing in January so I can’t really complain.
Does he already have a push cart? If so, I can't recommend the Alphard Club Caddy V2 highly enough. I've had mine since August and it's the best golf purchase I think I've ever made that didn't come off a beverage cart.Looking to get my dad a retirement gift and he wants a motorized pull cart for his bag.

Well congrats on saving 30k!GCNE has lowered its initiation fee to $27.5k.
I'm probably going to join and would be happy to meet any members. I'm a 21 handicap, so I won't be winning any club championships.
Don't think the Mevo+ is good enough?SkyTrack and Mevo+ are very different animals. SkyTrack is an optical tracker that was designed for light-controlled environments. Because it uses cameras it has some stats like face to path and face angle and such that are pretty accurate. Mevo+ is a doppler radar-based system that doesn't care if it's indoors or out (beyond needing metal dots on the ball indoors) and that does better tracking ball speed, launch angles, club speed, and spin than optical trackers. Sadly, you need to jump up to something like a GC2, GC-Quad, or real Trackman if you want the best of all worlds. If you have an extra $15-25k laying around, that's the way I'd go.
I've been doing lots of research on simulators because this winter in Denver is killing my golf game (snows 1" every weekend and doesn't melt until the following weekend when it snows again) but I haven't pulled the trigger because I keep pushing the price tag up beyond what I'm willing to spend.
Oh, I'm not saying that at all. It's clearly not the same as a GC Quad or a Trackman 4 and I just know that it will drive me crazy if I spend $2k and don't trust the numbers I'm getting, but right now, Mevo+ is the leader on my list of the launch monitors to buy.Well congrats on saving 30k!

I feel like we should get the @Conigliaro's Potential style hole-by-hole rundown. Doesn't sound like a lot of golf is being played so we need to live vicariously.This was my first round in the past two months that wasn't in 30mph winds. As you know, my course sits right in a mountain-ous valley and it can get pretty windy.
I was relieved to play in generally calm conditions today.
Get a message, most likely it's your triceps muscles pulling on your tendons.My elbow is still feeling tender from whatever I did to it in the tail end of the 2020 season, but it's a lot better than it was. I started doing some stretches which seem to be helping... I don't cringe anymore when extending it expecting a sharp pain which is good but it still makes a loud popping sound from time to time.
I'm sure it will be fine by April.
Had no idea you were so close. I am like 5 miles from there. I love Cape Ann for what it is, just don't go in July with the greenheads.Played 18 (2 loops) at Cape Ann in Essex on Monday. God what a fun 9 hole course that is. It's rough around the edges but holes 4-8 are outstanding imo.
We had 4 groups out there, skins and stabelford quota game. No one beat their quota, only one guy hit it, everyone else came up way short. For the back 9 it was in the 30s with about 20 mph winds, it was cooooold. Still a fun time though, ended up shooting 87 with an embarrassing short game display. Driver game was on point though.
