Don't you have to be a Milwaukee county resident to get the cheap price though? I'm in Ozaukee county. And yes.....Missing links is a challenge. Not many flat spots there. LOTS of hills and water.


No, you don't have to be a Milwaukee County resident to buy the discount card. Even without the card, Lincoln and Currie are both under 20$ for nine holes.

Oh....ok!
I can't hit the ball real far yet, only up to about 150 yards from the tee......with a good bounce. And that when i hit it REAL good.

Cheesy it's not the cost of the course that makes the course fun it's the people you golf with. Playing with any older golfers they will 150 yard a long hitter to death with consistant play down the middle. Short game is where the scoring is done and over half your shots on most holes are within 40 yards of the green.
If i get to the green bay area i would love to hit the links with you and get to know you better...my treat. It would be a blast talking packers and golfin.

golf is all about chalenging yourself and also being able to play someone competively regardless of their skill. Is is the hardest sport to excel at.

Baseball players swing and the golf swing are incredibly similar. The spine angle is different that is all. The golf swing is a throwing motion much like throwing a baseball or football, hence the good golfing QB's.

you can play it til you drop and not worry about getting injured from it. Most Athletes are good at any sport they play without much of an effort. Golf really brings out the competitiveness in them.

Thats true.
I'm VERY competitive. I don't care if i lose, but i give it my best shot at whatever i try.
I don't think i'll ever be good at golf, but it's fun trying!

Personally I think golf is awesome and I so wish I had the money to play it as a child. Then again playing hockey most of my life the swing between those two sports are incredibly similar which is why hockey players also tend to be avid golfers.

Most of the points have already been raised that pro athletes:
a) can afford it
b) are competitive and golf is extremely challenging mentally
c) relatively risk free activity when it comes to injuries

I also wouldn't be surprised that because contracts are now limiting much of athletes offseason activities golf is probably one of the few things that they can enjoy without jeapordizing their contracts.
