What's the rough like on your course? Does the fairway get mowed regularly or is it long? I see quite a few high socks down here - sometimes the rough can get rough.

I wear knee high socks a lot. I find that I can almost saturate them with Off! and repel mosquitos. It comes in handy here in Middle TN because the bugs are awful this time of year.

It also keeps my legs from getting carved up when I have to go tromping through high grass or the woods after errant throws.

^Yup. If I end up in the poison ivy or thorns, I hike them up.

Go-go gadget socks!

I saw my reflection in the water near hole 13 once.

Mowed often enough, only some of the holes have tall grass off the fairway which isn't mowed too often. Though I've never ran into poison oak or ivy or anything of the sort, most of the rough is woods and big bushes.

Actually I'm surprised that right now I've only had one mosquito bite. I'd have figured by now that I'd be gassing myself before most rounds. I haven't had a need for off except one time at Vallarta-Ast, which wasn't for mosquitoes. I'm not sure what kind of fly it was or what it was, but they fly sort of like bees, never sting so probably not bees, but I've had issues with them before. I'll go into the woods for a second grab my disc then it has to buzz all over the place around me, maybe they are just aggravated bumble bees that aren't mad enough to sting...but last time I could barely concentrate with all the flies that were bothering me throughout the round. They always seem rather pissed though having to buzz around me a lot. I remember once having to be in constant movement because of how terrible the mosquitoes were there.

I pulled a Randy Johnson once and killed a bird with my drive, mid-flight. While it's unfortunate the the bird dropped straight to the ground after I hit it, the angle it deflected off at actually saved my potentially errant drive from going into the water!
