Where we play the foam is cut a couple inches below the lip of the hole. The ball actually goes in so there's no question as to whether or not the putt was good. Too bad it's not that way for you guys too.
Yeah, my normal course it can go in the hole.... This was a little par 3 course (5 minutes from my house) that I go to to work on the short game.

Congrats on your foamer. If allowed, just cut the foam bitch down a few inches so the ball can be holed and still allow ball to be taken out of the hole with 2 fingers or putter tip.

Mentioned an idea I had regarding flag stick removal to folks yesterday at the course.
Use red white or blue wash cloths instead of the nylon flags and dip em in soapy water every now and then.
Folks already have golf towels. Kills bat poo flu and can use to wash golf balls if dirty.

Re: The Golf Thread

Our cups at LP Club where the foam is more than the ball height above the grass so there is no way it’s going in.  With the foam the ball tends to deflect off it.

We have a lot of par 3s especially on the Mt course where you can’t see the green well or maybe just the top of the flag.  There are a few totally blind greens as well.

The 9th on the links is a raised green tilted back towards the tee so you can clearly see it.  It also has a big trap about 10 deep in front of it And a mound and trap behind so club selection is very important.  It is on a very windy section of the course so it can be anywhere from a wedge to a 7 iron.  It is probably my most birdied hole on the links course after the short drivable 17th Par 4 hole

I have a clic gear 3.0 which I figure I have 5000 miles on and was looking to gear a new 4.0 one for Father’s Day. Did a search this weekend and couldn’t find one.  Then saw this article yesterday.  Makes sense as people that never walk had to but that may change soon

Nice shot Z !

No foam noodles in our pins at all, there is a metal ring insert with 4 prongs that allow the ball to hole in about half way then it easily is removed without touching the flag by either by a couple of fingers  or putter ..

Im wearing two gloves and have lysol in my cart bag even tho they are sanitizing carts before and after use , course is in decent shape but as per usual this time of year ....no roll outs

Re: The Golf Thread

My 87 year old friend who walks the course made an ace yesterday playing in the 4some ahead of us.
I won a dollar from the other "pretenders" as we won front back and all-day and had 1 birdie. I also got a free beer from the ace. The other team made 3 birdies with "only" 1 actually being holed as it hit stick and bounced straight back an inch away. We let em count it as it would have obviously sunk using "real" golf rules.
We have tournament today with distancing rules in effect. 2 man scramble. Flighted after first day. Partner is 93 or so, fun to ply with and plays great. I'll put him in some places he's never been as he hits em straight.

Re: The Golf Thread

Where we played yesterday they had the cups in upside down. It worked great. Putts fell as they should and easily retrievable.
