Anyone here play Tatanka yet?  It's at a reservation casino near Niobrara, Nebraska.  It just opened this fall, I think.   I'd never heard of it until I saw an article in a golf magazine a couple days ago.  

Will this next year. Only live about 45 minutes from it.

btw, The article was the cover story from a couple weeks ago.  I don't think the article is on-line though.   :dunno:

 

Here's a little bit about it.

 

http://golfweek.com/...course-michiga/

 

Played the course a couple weeks back.  It's pretty damn awesome.  The tall stuff is thick.  I was lucky to only lose 2 balls.  You can tell its a young course, but it's still pretty sweet.  The greens are really nice and most have different levels.  There is basically not a flat hole on the course.  A lot of up and down.  One hole, number 12 I believe is kind of unfair.  200-200+ yard par 3, straight up hill.  There is a bunker in the front, left is not good, and there is some fairway right but it runs out quick and there is OB.  And off the tee there is a tree in the way if you are on one of the tee boxes to the left.  I'm guessing they will be changing that hole a little before it's all said and done to make it more playable.  As of now, your better laying up to the right and playing it as a par 4.  There are some really cool holes otherwise.  The best thing?  The price is an absolute steal!!!  Especially if you want to play early or a little later in the day.  But even during "prime" time it's still a steal.  Well worth it.

I was wondering if there are any other equipment nerds out there like I am.  This really isn't surprising as Nike's equipment never has been big with the average golfer.  Yeah, there might be a few guys who wanted to play what Tiger Woods played, but Nike was never going to compete with Taylor Made, Callaway, Titleist, and others equipment companies.

 

Now, Nike can concentrate on apparel and shoes, which have the highest margins anyway, and their staffers can wear Nike head to toe and be associated with those players.

Just got back from a weekend long golf trip with 8 guys in Phoenix. Stayed at the JW Marriot Desert Ridge resort. Resort had 2 courses. One was designed by Palmer and one was a Faldo course. Got pretty lucky with the weather as it wasn't disgustingly hot until Saturday. 

 

As for the golf it is definitely a different style down there. Ball flies further and rolls out a lot more than here in the midwest. Had a blast down there and I think were looking to book a trip yearly now. This was the first time any of us had done something like this. 

 

Anyone have suggestions for places they have went and done similar things? We are looking to make this a yearly deal now.

The course record where I play has been 62 for quite a few years.  Some guy went out and shot a 59 on Friday.  Then on Saturday he shot a 63.  Wow, just wow.  That guy can really golf his ball.  :thumbs:

It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long, the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter, while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. But then winter came and the grasshopper died. And the octopus ate all his acorns. Also he got a race car. Is any of this getting through to you?

Had a chance to get out and play Saturday morning at Ashland CC. Shot 79 but very easily should have been 74 or 75. Ill put together 7 or straight holes of good golf then have 1 blow up hole that does me in.

79 though.  That's a score most of us aspire to!  Well done, sir.  :lol:

Good round!!! I would have drove right by you on the way to tailgate before the game. I always say I need to peg it at Ashland CC because it looks surprisingly decent driving by. Just a tough draw with Ironhorse and Quarry Oaks nearby. 

 

Sidenote: Do they have a decent range? When I'm back in town, we stay between Ashland and Yutan and I always am searching for a range nearby. End up driving in town to Indian Creek most of the time, which has a great practice facility.

I don't believe that they have a range. I would just make the trek to Indian Creek. Nicest range facility I've seen in town. Haven't played Quarry but I wasn't a huge fan. And for the $25 i paid Saturday morning it was more than worth it.

Wow!   Wouldn't have thought a golf ball would compress that much.

Got a Nebraska Golf Passport for christmas this year. Not sure how I'm going to make it to all 27 courses on the list but I hope I can find a way. A lot of nice courses on there. Anyone ever have one of these?

Crazy, but I won a trip to Carlsbad to test Callaway's new driver that came out today. While I was out there last month, I got a chance to play Torrey Pines South. What a great track and incredible views!

Had the chance to play there a few years back. Played horrible golf that day but didn't really care. The course is so beautiful.

The cold, long Midwest must be getting to me.  I had a golf dream last night.  I dream nearly every night, often a couple of dreams per night.  First time I've ever had a golf dream.  :lol:

Fiance told me the other day she wants to get me a new set of irons for our wedding gift (didn't know this was a thing). Looking at getting the new Cobra King F7 one length irons. All irons are the same length as your 7 iron. Anyone on here play these or know someone that does?

Bryson DeChambeau is the only guy I know that uses them and he is on the PGA Tour. In theory, they should help, but I think you need to have some relatively high swing speed otherwise the gaps in the long irons won't be enough.

I typically don't swing anything over a 6 iron (not because I'm that good but the courses I typically play aren't very long) so idk if the long iron issue would apply to me. I just like the idea of having all the irons be the same length. 

 

Am I completely wrong in thinking that it will help my short iron play or not?

If 6 is longest, you should be fine. Yardage gapping when you get down in 5-4-3, speed is important and that comes from length.

What is it based off of, 8i?

I believe the guy said that it was based off of 7 iron length. Which if that's the case would be perfect for me.

The temp was around 50o yesterday afternoon.   So I cut out early and played the front nine.  Shot a 45.  Would've been a 43, except I hit one OB.  Just last week I played four holes and started out triple, triple, bogey.  Very painful.  It was pretty cold though, and for some reason everything I hit was going about a club and a half less in distance.  That, and I couldn't make a putt to save my life.    Go figure.

Best round I ever played was a cloudy mid-40's day, with drizzle (shot an 82/par72)

The cooler temp is the reason your shots were going less distance.  Also, I am sure greens aren't in great shape right now, as the grass isn't growing and the courses aren't cutting the greens to get them smooth every day.  Don't be so hard on yourself.  Enjoy the fact you were out on the course in mid-Feb.

Having all your irons the same length is a terrible idea for the average golfer, especially for your short irons.  Your short irons should be shorter length shafts to provide more accuracy into the green.  Also, golfers encounter varying lies around the green, so it helps to have the shorter shaft length.

^Yep. Also, longer irons aren't all about distance. They're also about the ball flight. I'll choke down on a 5 iron if I want the ball to run a bit, as opposed to using a 6, or 7.

I would consider anyone that shoots in the 80s+ as "average".
