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.

Dulak (10m) : ya I think they mentioned that U U ... but you see this alot - even in the dallas game they pushed off at least 1 time (they as in dallas)
uffda udfa (6h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (8h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (9h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (10h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (14h) : It's just fine.
musccy (14h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (14h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (15h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (15h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (15h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (16h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (16h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (16h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (20h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (20h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (21h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (21h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (23h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (23h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (23h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (23h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (23h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (20-Jan) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
