Anyone who plays golf, knows that it's a game of ups and downs. One day you're hitting great, the next day you feel like you're blowing every shot. One day the cup is like a magnet to your ball, the next it seems to squirm away as your ball approaches. Why do we keep playing? Guess it's because, in spite of all the frustrations, you're never bored! Do you feel the same? Share your favorite courses or golf moments with us.

Cutting Back! Are Gas Prices Hurting Golf Courses?

A number of people have told me lately that the cost of gas is having an effect on the amount of time they are spending at the golf course! Is this something that is happening nationwide? If so, it is not entirely surprising. When people are having a hard time paying for gas to get to and from work, it is understandable that they will start being careful of adding extra miles to get to their favorite golf course. With the additional surge in the cost of food and other necessities of life and the very real fear that fuel costs for the coming winter will be exorbitant, they no longer feel that they can afford the green fees and cart fees as often as they have in the past.

Let's hope that this trend does not make golf a sport that only the rich can afford!
