re: Course Conditions Thread - The Johnny Lawrence
The thought was that you'd come in the stickied thread, find the course you were inquiring of, then bump the course thread and ask the conditions. This thread isn't really intended to discuss individual courses or really anything in general, other than to prompt me that there is a course missing...

re: Its a shame BR no longer has any mid-tier golf clubs - The Johnny Lawrence
Sherwood legit had a membership drive to get the public to open the course back up and they couldn't do it. FWIW....

re: Its a shame BR no longer has any mid-tier golf clubs - The Johnny Lawrence
I think of midtier clubs, my first thought is something in the $2,000 a year range with no steep initiation fee. We have those surrounding the BR area on every side, but nothing in the city. I'd dump Pelican, Greystone, The Bluffs, and The Island all into that category. Carter could also go into...

re: What do you do from 60 to 100 yards out? - The Johnny Lawrence
I hit a little punch shot with a lofted club. Put most of my weight on the left side, don't transfer during the swing and just take a nice arm only swing. Focus on making good contact. I've found this spot in my swing that I can duplicate, and I just change the club I use. I call it 3/4, but it's pr...

re: How's the Bluffs? - The Johnny Lawrence
I played Sharks Tooth in Florida and was talking to the super about bunkers. He said Norman went crazy with bunkers out there, and I don't disagree. The super's complaint was that they were having to spend so much time maintaining bunkers that weren't actually in play. At this point in my golf l...

Didn't see a thread on that course. If you want me to add a course to the main page, I can. Just link the thread that discusses it. ...

re: Course Conditions Thread - The Johnny Lawrence
I didn't see a La Tour thread, so it wasn't listed. Someone find one and post it and I'll add it. I just did the ones I could find, not every course ever discussed. ...

re: Course Conditions Thread - The Johnny Lawrence
Well, I'm not playing enough golf around the city to update for every course. If you have a question about conditions, ask it in that thread. It'll stay up-to-dateish. ...

re: Course Conditions Thread - The Johnny Lawrence
The threads will be updated as people update them. The links are just to the first page of the thread that discusses each golf course. It's self updating. I don't think there will be much updating in the main thread, unless people add various travel locations or new topics warrant addition. This...

re: Course Conditions Thread - The Johnny Lawrence
I know I missed a few courses and some other random stuff that I probably need to add. If y'all throw the links in some posts below, I'll edit them to add and we can try to keep it up to date. I'm sure some of the course condition threads weren't intended to start as course condition threads, bu...

re: Copper Mill - The Johnny Lawrence
I know they've had lower than ideal turn out for a lot of LGA events in the recent years. But the State Am is at BRCC, and I expect the turn out to be strong. IIRC, I don't think you even had to qualify for the State Am a couple of years ago. But tha tcould have also been hearsay. ...

re: Why doesn’t the zurich move back to English Turn - The Johnny Lawrence
TPC is a boring layout. English Turn is a much better layout. I asked the pro at ET a few years ago why they don't host anymore and he said part of the reason was ET was too easy. Guys were turning par 5s into short par 4s. I do think the tour is moving tournaments to TPC courses because of ...

re: What would it take for a management entity to purchase the golf business from BREC? - The Johnny Lawrence
I've pondered how it would look if you sold the 5 holds on the other side of college, and possibly the holes on the left of the creek and used all of that money to go out and rework Webb to have an elite practice facility and 9 really fun, exciting holes. (Think Sweetens Cove). ...

re: Copper Mill - The Johnny Lawrence
Side note, I was out at Greystone recently and they aren't nearly as bad as they were. They look like trash, but they putt fairly well, all things considered. I think once it gets warmer, they will be back with no issues. Golf course is also growing on me since y'all told me the lines/club selec...

re: Craft Farms - Gulf Shores - The Johnny Lawrence
Craft Farms was really nice when I played it. I played both, but neither were overly memorable. The quintessential neighborhood course, which I guess is cool if it wasn't surrounded by much better options. This is the breakdown I typically paste into Gulf Shores golf threads. It isn't answering ...

re: Using another states overdrive library? - The Johnny Lawrence
Every library has a different set of books, but most overlap. EBR is actually fairly strong. The concern with going with a big city, to me, is going to be how long I'm going to have to wait to get the book. I currently have access to three libraries: EBR, Nashville, and Livingston. My SIL li...
