That's factually incorrect. Regardless of your skill level or current handicap, your handicap is calculated based on the index and slope for that particular set of tees. If a scratch golfer and a...

These look like holes that were designed to be a par 5 but ended up being too easy, and ended up tweener holes.

With the exception of the red, which I agree is clearly a par 4, I don't know that...

Everyone I know with a hunting dog, it's essentially the family pet, other than the fact that's it also been trained to go hunting.

I'm curious how you think letting a dog hunt is abusive. ...
