Hi, Golf Buds:
I will be posting some winter events starting January. Until then, I hope people are taking advantage of the spurts of warmer weather and are getting out. I will post an April 2013 meet-up just to keep the group from closing. See you soon!
Hi and Welcome! All levels of golfer, from beginner to advanced, are welcome. You will need these basic skills to golf with us: (a) able to hit off tee at least 60 yards consistently (b) able to hit it off the ground consistently (without missing often) at least 40 yards; some knowledge of how to hit a chip and pitch shot. So that people can decide if an outing is within their level of expertise, each outing will come with a rating of difficulty: SHORT HITTERS (hits 50-100 yards off tee, new at chipping/pitching), MEDIUM HITTERS (hits 100-150 off tee, fair at chips/pitches), and LONG HITTERS (hits 150 plus off tee, good at chips and pitches). If you are NOT skilled enough to play with us, please take some lessons, then join us. You can take from a pro (see options, in "Files" on site) or from myself (much cheaper). "Files" section also has free written lessons. We meet up about bi-monthly to golf and socialize. You can attend one of our meetups, put out an email to the group seeking members interested in playing, or add your name to our golf phone tree (see files section) so that golfers may call you if interested in playing. We golf all over: the city, but mainly north, west and south suburbs, and we always golf near a highway to make it convenient. Questions? Email me, Blake, via this website. Members can also call me at 847/966-8806.
