    Tech golf course

    How many of you use the Tech golf course?

    I try to play there 2-3 times a month. Hit the second birdie of my life just this past Thursday on the straight par 5 in the back. I find it almost a steal to play for $5 walking.

    For the shape that it's usually in, they should PAY people to play on it.

    I don't think there's one single place on that course where you're hitting on even ground, but for the cheap price, I venture there a few times a month...I'm just glad the driving range nearby is finally open again...

    It's a fun course to go play with four iron down, no need for anything more. With any accuracy at all and some course knowledge, you can get a good score just by over powering the course.

    I can not stand to play that course. I've seen Interstate Medians that were in better shape than Tech golf course. The only fun thing about the course is trying to hit the greens on Par 4's with a driver.

    I use the Tech DISC golf course quite frequently. Anybody else a disc golfer?

    Better enjoy it while you can. I think that before long you'll have to have a boat to play most of that course.

    Re: Tech golf course

    Well back in the stone age we played for free. Then they uped te fee to a buck. Guys you can't complain too much when you play that cheap. I've played courses that cost quite a bit, but some of my best golf memories where on that Tech course learning how to play. When you are a broke college student and you can play golf every day for free it's not so bad. I also remember having a night tournament out there with glow in the dark golf balls and glow stick on the flags. I also have some really fond memories of the 7th green that were made at night as well. Enjoy it while you can.

    We tried that and that was my first run in with the police while a Tech student. They were gracious and didn't arrest us. I still don't think it should be possible to trespass on Tech property while a Tech student on a place that doesn't post hours of operation, but no harm done.

    PS - it is a TON of fun if you've never done it.

    Ours was actually organized by the "pro" at the golf course.

    I have no problem paying the $5 to walk. I also love to see the guys out there with the drivers. I've learned to just tee off with the 5 wood, it goes straight, and pretty high - looks good. It would have been nice to play for free.

    Hey, I remember that place. I was out there at "dusk" one time and "accidentally" fell in the water. Lo and behold, 5 or 6 hundred golf balls just hopped out onto the bank. And yes, the statute of limitations has passed!

    300 of those were probably mine.
