About: I've stunk at this game for a while, but I can't help but love it! In 2004, I went on a quest to play every public, 18-hole course in the state - it took about 5 years! I've reviewed them all and am going to try and cycle through them again so my rev I've stunk at this game for a while, but I can't help but love it! In 2004, I went on a quest to play every public, 18-hole course in the state - it took about 5 years! I've reviewed them all and am going to try and cycle through them again so my reviews will be more up-to-date. I also carry a camera in my bag and have gotten pics of most courses too (I know, I'm a bit nuts, but...). Anyway, I hope fellow golfers will use my reviews as a guide.

Most Interesting Golf Experience:
I was down on Hilton Head Island, SC in the spring of 2001 boogie-boarding in the surf just after a round of golf, when I was stung on the hand by a stingray. I didn't even know what hit me until 5 hours later, when the pain wasn't going away, my bud I was down on Hilton Head Island, SC in the spring of 2001 boogie-boarding in the surf just after a round of golf, when I was stung on the hand by a stingray. I didn't even know what hit me until 5 hours later, when the pain wasn't going away, my buddies took me to the emergency room and they told me what happened: "Yep, that was a stingy" the nurse exclaimed. I had to soak my hand in scalding water (yes, don't try to ice-it like I did) for the next two nights, get a tetanus shot and take antibiotics for 15 days. Good thing it stung me on the top of the hand, otherwise I'd have never been able play the next 36 holes! ... (more)
