its not that i dont like them. like nvm said, theyre big and ugly as well as old. i just think its time for an upgrade.

ive hit my buddy's ping i3+ irons at the range a few times and i cant really say what it is but they just feel alot better when i hit the ball.

what im expecting is maybe a bit more distance and accuracy out of a newer set.

my next set of irons will be those new Wilson Staff CI7's. tried them @ GolfTown,feels great. awesome reviews. very funky looking graphite shaft technology on them. but the heads looks nice when looking down on them ,at address. thin,pro-looking. i do like my cheap Tommy Armour's still,shot 8 straight games in the 80's with them,but they have a very low kick point. nice for getting them up in the air and dropping them on the greens,but they lack distance.

Predator Ridge,wow. talk about tough greens. makes you really appreciate how good pros are. so fast and so many holes with different tiers, you really have to be deadly with your approach shot. not just get it on, but get it close. the fairways, magnificent. they were setting up for the Skins Championship coming up this week, and there were tv towers all over the place,the fencing for the galleries were being put in place,etc.

have you golfed much before? or are you a pure beginner? if you want to start from scratch most golf courses will offer beginner group lessons which is a good foundation and you dont have to spend alot.

if you are looking for something a bit more specific then private lessons are great. one on one and tailored to whatever you want, but it can get a bit pricey (unless you buy like 10 lessons at once but thats maybe $450+ depending where you go) if you are interested in some private lessons PM me i know some pros i can recommend for you.

Good! He needed that knee surgery after watching him limp around and grimace with pain during the US Open.

we're off to Langara in a few.we're going to see if MizNVM's golf lessons are paying off.i got her 3 private lessons,1/2 each @ Takaya. i sure saw a huge improvement hitting balls with her @ the driving range.

Vancouver has finally joined the new age with an online tee time reserve system. tomorrow it's NorthLands @ 5:47 AM. i see Northlands is now on SkyCaddie's mapped list, yay!

i played the Dunes in Kamloops last year, awesome links style course.

i went to that Perfect Lies tent sale this morning on Byrne by Riverway golf course and got me an Adams A3OS 5 Hybrid. nice club! so effortless to pop it 180 yds. makes a cool "ting" noise when you hit it. it beats the crap out of my TaylorMade Rescue hybrid. Boxer technology FTW.

hey guys..

i am interested in buying my own golf set, but don't know where to start! i guess i missed the perfect lies sale... but i don't want to go there and don't know anything and get ripped off

i am a semi-noob (i can maintain doing par, or +1 for pitch and putt), never play the big course (i'd love to if i can get my own stuff), i'd say i played about ~15 times in my life.

is 200-300 going to be enough?

thanks!
