    Just curious, from some of the other threads, it seems we might have a few in here.

    And on that note, a rather funny new media campain by top flight, http://topflite.com/d2man/

    The rapping video is pretty great, probably not so much for none golfers, but either way you should get a laugh

    Yeah, I'm a golfer. I completely suck at golfing, though, but I still like it a lot. Has anyone ever had a season pass? I was wondering about how much one would cost.

    Sounds like a pretty gnarly slice you got going on there. I've been playing for about 10 years now. I hadn't played for a long time since I moved to San Diego, but now I'm starting to get back into it. Used to average mid-upper 70s when I played, trying to get back to at least that.

    Yes, although not as well as I'd like. I also work at a golf shop.

    Handicap of about 10 :/

    Thing is with golf there is always somewhere you can improve. Someone shoots a 59, but I guarantee they can look back at the round and find a few places they could have gone lower.

    def reccomend at least a rent of it. but yeah its that good. anything you would do with a club to cause a ball to do anything the wiimote responds accordingly. tilt the wiimote left or right and the ball will fade or draw, dont follow through your swing and the ball wil drop short. its really playing golf, only you can do it naked lol

    As for the season pass, like previously stated it depends on the type of course, whether or not its a Private Club, or a Public Course, and the quality of those courses. Also depends on where you are, I know that down here in San Diego golf is quite expensive, just to play the public courses, and in the triple digits for Country Clubs and high end courses.

    (Torrey Pines, which is in La Jolla, which is about 20 minutes from me, is $150+ for one round for non-residents, and $50 for city of San Diego Residents)

    Yeah, I'm thinking a public course that is probably average in quality. A 9-hole round at the course would be about $12 at the most, So I can't imagine a pass being too expensive.

    I only played once or twice, all I did was hit a ball around my big lawn and try to hit as far as I could. Me and my friend used my riding mower as the caddy.

    I think we need SSBB Lover in here, and he'll straighten you out.

    No offense, but I think golf is boring... :O And yes, I know I'll get the unoriginal answer of "All you do in tennis is hit a ball back in forth." It involves waaayyy more skill than you'd ever think.

    I rather like golf, right now I am no good, and quite frankly have no time at this point in my life. I know I have the *potential*, so whenever I can start up again...

    I know how much skill tennis takes, and I know I can't do it. I can assure you that there is much more to playing golf than you would imagine. Golf is boring to watch, not at all to play. Tennis in my opinion is even more boring to watch, and the constant grunting is annoying as all hell.

    There is no one that will convince me to ever like tennis whatsoever. I can appreciate the talent needed to perform at a high level, but I find nothing about it appealing.
