How many possible ways are there to say "take your middle class" and shove it?I will end the debate right now about Oscar's, Millstone, etc. For I am...Barry Black Jenkins III.
You see...if you hit one down the middle at Oscar's, you pretty much land in the rough at Millstone.
So, at Oscar's...you are in the rough no matter what the situation.
The greens are smaller at Oscar's and larger at Millstone. Millstone does an excellent job of keeping their greens in top-notch shape..At Oscar's..the greens will make your ball bounce.
Overall, Millstone is suppose to be a tougher course. But, due to the unforeseen obstacles (greens, rough fairways) Oscar's is also equally tough.
Millstone is very forgiving for a PGA Certified Course. Try playing in areas such as Myrtle Beach, etc. where you have to keep the ball tight. This will make you a better golfer.
So, the moral of the story is....Rednecks stay at Oscar's and let the middle class play at Millstone.
For the rich, try the Country Club, it's the best of both Oscar's and Millstone. Or pretty much..rename it Oscar Millstone.
You know, it's a sad day when some fool thinks that golf is all about wealth and privilege. I've played at TCC many, many times and if it's the best money has to buy, then somebody got ripped off. Being a member of TCC doesn't hold near the stature that some think.
As for Millstone, a blind-man on crutches could play and never find himself in trouble. It's too wide open and non-challenging. Again, those who think that being a member there holds some special status for them are dead wrong.
I may just be another "redneck" from Oscar's but the fact is that if we can play through all of the so-called adversities there and still shoot below par, imagine what we can do to "better" golf courses. All you've got to do is name the place and time. In other words, put your money where your mouth is.
