Any Golfers In Florida??

Strange request on a bike forum, but if you don't ask and all that!

I normally have a biking holiday with my missus for our annual vacation (see the links below), but this year we've booked a family holiday to Florida where we'll be staying on I drive and doing all the Disney stuff.

It will be our second visit and last time we stayed there we managed to get a couple of games of golf in, but this time my eldest son isn't going so I'll not have a golfing buddy. Is any of you up for a game? I'll be over the first two weeks in August.

Cheers

DG

I went to a driving range once, could barely hit the little ball. That was 20 yrs ago, I probably suck even worse now. That said, I will kick your ass at Wii golf.

One of my riding buddies has been known to haul his clubs on the bike. I'll point him to this thread.

I'm not far from Orlando. I hack at the ball around the course a bit. Not really good at it. As a matter of fact, I suck! But... I have a good time doing it. Being the cheap bastid that I am, I wouldn't pay more than $35-$40 for 18 holes at a local course. Plenty of those around my place. My FIL likes to play golf and he's retired. He can play anytime. I have a M-F gig so I'm somewhat limited on the times I can play. Not sure how good of a golfer you are but, if you're patient, and don't like to keep score, maybe we can all hook up when you're here.

Cheers guys!

Typical Doc!

Thanks Huzband I'd appreciate that

Dr. Z sounds like a plan! I'm ok, I have a handicap of 12 and I'm happy to pay that kind of dollar for a game, although I'd have to hire a set of clubs too. I'm not too bothered about keeping a card, be just good to get out on a nice course and swing the clubs while I'm away and of course the obligatory beer afterwards

12 handicap, eh... well, you're in for a long day if I tag along.

I'm thinking you can borrow some clubs. I have a spare set.

Obligatory beer before, during, and afterwards is in order!

There's a few courses less than 10 miles from my place... Diamondback, Grenelefe, Oakwood, Willowbrook, Ridgewood Lakes, & Highland's Reserve just to name a few. Most of those are $45 or less per hacker in the summer I believe.

Sounds like my kinda round, over here we call it bolfing boozing and golfing. Only snag I'll have is we aren't getting a car this time around as we've got transfers to all the parks etc. how's the public transport system to get to the courses?

I'm sure the transport system in Disney is great for their courses. But... their courses are $$$.

I don't believe the public transport to golf courses 20-30 miles away from Disney is any good unless you take a taxi.

Worst Afternoon of my life was when I won a sales contest and prize was a day off with a round of golf at one of the nicer C.C. near Disney. Rather spend the day being hung up on while making sales calls.
