For the most part I've met some decent guys with a few bad ones sprinkled in. But, the longer I've played my home course (Limona) The more I start recognizing the guys there. So, at this point, after playing steadily over 5 months, I'm at a comfort zone there. However, it's been a slow process. I agree with what you said above. the sport is addictive. My son, and a few other friends are fully involved now. Good luck at your club. I know time, and your continued improving play can help.
