For the past couple of years, seems all the activity on this forum is from people who qualify to play in age protected divisions.

Considering the age of folks who post on DGCR, "whippersnapper" refers to someone in their 40's. :\

I think there are more 20 or 30 somethings than we may think, at least observing, if not participating. If I see a new name "nice" a post, I'll check them out. Since earlier in the year, there's an 18-yearold whose followed my reviews, has played a little more than a year, and posted his first ace. The ace is the only time I've seen a post from him. I just pulled him up, and he was on here this morning. A twentysomething in my area started playing a year ago, was bagging courses I've played, and posting scores. Disappeared about 6 months ago. I'll keep their names silent.

The question is how we keep them coming back and the younger generations, and all staying with us, and perhaps they'll be inspired to eventually participate more. Wolfhaley did a good thing a few weeks ago, encouraging others to write their first reviews. Olorin, Wellsbranch and a few others who continue to give shout outs to those who are progressing writing reviews is probably the strongest encouragement for our newest "participants" to stay on DGCR.

I wonder how many courses my wife has actually played. She goes with me on several of my trips but usually only plays a couple of the courses at most.

I gave a course a bad review. I should check back in and see if anyone gave me the thumbs down. Wasn’t that some sort of sign in the gladiator arena for one gladiator to kill their opponent? How did we go from using that sign to end a life to just mean you disagree with someone?

I gave my neighborhood course a one star and it's my most popular review. :hfive:

Not sure when it happened or if it has already been noted, but lee76007 finally got a well deserved upgrade to Gold TR. Congrats!

So you live in a neighborhood with poor designers and discerning reviewers....

Thank you! This past Monday I was a silver commenting on a thread, when I hit post, I turned to gold. edfaits got me over the hump The Blockhouse Tiki Course I posted a few weeks ago. The past few weeks with the Tiki Course, and The Lake Marshall Open being telecast, I think I picked up about 5 new uniques between the two. I hope sometime in the next handful of years to take the mother of all course bagging trips the lower 48, to complete that uphill climb.
