Caddyshack would have been a far better choice than Happy Gilmore! I take it no Three Stooges golf shorts, either? Or old Bobby Jones stuff? Pfffft!

Glad to see the Civic is operating in the black to such a level that it can offer free movies.

In case you didn't catch it, that was meant to be sarcastic...

Seriously, they just got bailed out to the tune of several million dollars. Seems to me that they should be looking for more paying customers. Oh yeah, that's right, we are all paying! Instead of buying tickets, we are just subsidizing it with our tax dollars.

C'mon. That seen in Happy Gilmore where Sandler and Bob Barker get in a fight is freakin' hilarious.

Hey guys (and gals)

Do you know where there is a driving range that has decent distance markers such as 50, 75, 100, 200, 300yds and grass tees? Something within a twenty mile radius of Cuyahoga Falls would be nice.

Brookledge in the Falls and Riverview Sports in the valley both are inadequate at best.

It's been a while since I have been to Firestone9 driving range and can't remember if they have the markers or not.

I'm hitting better with my irons not and don't have a true distance with them anymore.

Thanx for you help :)

I cast my vote for the city hall hero dressin' up in a yesteryear usher uniform and makin' sure ever-buddy gets seated properly.

He might as well do sumthin' for all of our money he's sunk into that place.

Handicapper,
Dont think distance. Think target. Every club in the bag can go 5 feet or close to 200 yards.

Whatever club shapes the shot needed, is the right club. If your'e thinking, does the shot need an 8?...use a 6 and hit it real easy.

For me, chipping and putting is my score breaker. But you can practice those at the course.

My favorite courses...Valley View's Lakes 9. Then Roses Run back 9, #3, ha. I want to say it's 560, long left turn, tight, downhill. It can make a pro look like a hack, or vice versa, ha.

Does Brandywine have markers? Don't they have a range across the road by the Par 3?

OK Fuzzy, I really do understand what you are saying but I can't help but feel I need to have an idea about how far the ball will go on average with an easy swing which I do indeed possess.

Our league play at Ellsworth in Hudson so I will keep what you said in mind; thanx

OK you went there, so I gotta' tell you my story at Valley View a few weeks ago.

An employee from an out of state division was due in town and wanted to play a round of 18 but forgot to bring his clubs. I was excited about playing and offer to let him use my extra set and I graciously supplied him with a boat load of golf balls.

I made the tee times and we headed out for Valley View. Our hdcp are pretty much the same and I hit the ball relatively straight but occasionally I would toss the river a ball or two while my friend was much more generous to the water.

As we were about to complete the second nine, I noticed he went into my bag and start using my best golf balls. I didn't say anything but casually went to his bag and noticed he went through all of the balls I had placed in there and the pouch was pretty full to start with.

Needless to say, we did not play the third nine and next time he's in town and forget his clubs, I will indeed allow him to use my extra set but we will make a stop at Wal-Mart so that he can purchase his own golf balls.

You know, I work about 10 or 15 minutes away from Brandywine and play once a week after work at Ellsworth and I have never played at Brandywine. It seems everytime I get an opportunity to play something comes up (or down;rain).

Seriously, a few co-workers and me have tried to get together on the weekend or after work and if a late meetings doesn't stop it some type of job related emergency arise or a child gets sick on the weekend or something.

This generally just happens when I try to play Brandywine; when they get together without me, it seems to go over without a hitch. go figure (you know, it would be easy to develop an inferiority complex here.):)

What a yutz I am; somehow I respond to myself when I meant to respond here to you.

It was the post speaking on me not being able to play at Brandywine.

Now the last time I was at Roses Run was about eight years ago and they were fairly new to the area.

At the time the green fees were $65 for the public which I thought was pretty steep. I did play there but was a bit intimidated with all the houses so close to and ON the course.

There was one house with all of these pane glass windows that sat just behind the green begging to be hit. I never will understand why someone would put a house that close to a grenn and right in the line of fire.

They must have known that it was a target because I saw a sign that said something to the effect that if you broke a window you are responsible for it. I didn't break any windows and I have never been back.
