My son Jeff sent it to me. I will stay tuned. I came upon this gadget and you may enjoy sampling it and reviewing it. http://www.golfboard.com/product-details.php Dave Trull Groveland, MA Brad Bayerlein on 31 October, 2014 at 00:54 Reply Sean, I share a passion for golf similar to yours and so far most of the courses you’ve posted I’ve either played or researched and totally agree with your synopsis…my brother Kevin lives in NC, (lucky bastard) as I live in WI, but I travel all over as well so I’ve gotten to experience so much. I was wondering if you played streamsong in Tampa and what you thought? Also a recommendation for you if you haven’t already played, Wolf Creek in NV is crazy fun and beautiful. Kind Regards, Brad Bayerlein Sean Ogle on 31 October, 2014 at 19:27 Reply Brad, thanks for the comment! Haven’t played Streamsong yet, but hope to get out there next year. I did play Wolf Creek earlier this year though and LOVED it. http://breakingeighty.com/wolf-creek-golf-club Butch on 5 January, 2015 at 16:28 Reply Can you purchase additional sensors? Do the sensors have to be charged? If yes how often? Coble on 9 January, 2015 at 01:16 Reply Sean~ Landed on your page as I saw a commercial on a stat tracking device, Arccos, Google it and your review came up. Glad I found you, great info! The Dan Plan is hilarious…I’ll shoot him an email. If you’re traveling through the Denver, CO area give me a call, 720-933-1075. I’m also in AZ a ton, playing in Tucson area and visit Scottsdale quite often. In fact headed there in three weeks for the rowdy Phoenix Open with a dozen pals, a must for you! This year it’ll coincide with the Super Bowl held across town…and Tiger is coming! A featured Blog is awaiting for sure! Shaun on 3 August, 2015 at 03:04 Reply Hey Sean, you travel a ton for golf. I was wondering if you could write an article about what you pack? I don’t travel often for golf, but have a regular guys trip golf weekend. Thanks for the great site, my goal would be to break eighty as well. So far I’ve scored as well as 87. Sean Ogle on 6 August, 2015 at 20:40 Reply Shaun, Great idea. I’ll see what I can do! Jay on 6 December, 2015 at 19:39 Reply I’m very much interested in purchasing one but I have just one concern that’s making me hold back. Is Zepp considering making it possible to view your stats thru a website using a desktop computer? If Zepp could make this happen I’m 100% for it. For now, the lack of flexibility makes me think twice. Troy on 25 January, 2016 at 22:25 Reply Hello, Just reaching out to you to see if you accept guest posts on your site. I have a current blog at http://www.hittingitsolid.com but would like to contribute something to yours. I can write about anything relating to golf from the latest news, tips or equipment. Please let me know. Cheers Mark on 25 March, 2016 at 12:16 Reply I have app on iPhone. Started course in wisconsin i am now in florida. When i open app it says resume round. How do i end round so i can select new course in florida? Thank you for help Jack Morton on 28 May, 2016 at 02:22 Reply Hey, Sean! Love the site. Leaving on June 17th for 12 day trip to Scotland & Northern Ireland. How about that packing advice article mentioned earlier? Would love to have your take at least a week out. Thanks for all you do. Charles on 12 August, 2016 at 17:46 Reply Can you give me any tips for playing a private course in Cabo San Lucas. I am getting married in November and I am trying to play El Dorado Beach and Golf Club on Friday or maybe even the Dunes. We will not have to do a timeshare speech. Any tips? Thank you, Charles Julien on 31 August, 2016 at 18:07 Reply Hi Sean, I was following you on Instagram, and so I went to see your blog and I just wanted to say good job! I have started also a few years ago, and I do enjoy playing courses around the world, so can def. relate to your blog! Keep up the good work and if you ever stop by France, let me know, I’ll hook you up with some good course (before I move to the US). Cheers IG: julientizot_golf Bonac Booster Club on 7 September, 2016 at 17:16 Reply Hey Golfers, East Hampton High School Athletic Bonac Booster Club is hosting a Golf Outing at the exclusive Maidstone Golf Club in East Hampton, New York. Come help support our Athletes and play at an Amazing course. Lynke on 9 September, 2016 at 23:58 Reply Hey Sean how’s it going? Can you tell me what year the Nike Lunar Waverly came out? I’m curious. Thanks! Lynke Sean Ogle on 10 September, 2016 at 16:12 Reply Lynke, I believe it first came out in 2014. Kai Hellberg on 23 October, 2016 at 18:51 Reply Quick Question: I’m a college student in Boston right now and I’m wondering what the best public golf options are out here (i don’t mind making long drives to get places) or who I should talk to if I want to get on the private ones. Terence Egan on 20 December, 2016 at 17:30 Reply Check out Ballyowen in northern NJ next time your in the NYC area. It doesnt feature on the top 100 public list but it’s nicer than Atlantic City CC and on a par with Trump Ferry Point, both of which are there. The price tag is also considerably less than Trump. Andrew Minkel on 5 February, 2017 at 03:48 Reply Sean, Awesome work with the site! You really are living the golf dream. I am heading out west to California in June for my honeymoon. Any advice for getting on Pebble Beach? Of course, I would love to get on Cypress Point but don’t have the connections. Any idea for Cypress Point? Thanks and take care! Andrew Buffalo, NY Sean Ogle on 6 February, 2017 at 16:23 Reply Andrew, Congratulations! Pebble Beach is easy, just book a room and a tee time 🙂 It’s just going to be expensive – and there’s really no way around that. You can take your chances and wait until the day off to try and score a walk up tee time, but it’s a crapshoot, and will still cost you $495. As for Cypress – I’m still working on that one for myself ha. Joseph on 15 February, 2017 at 16:39 Reply Dear Sean, Ive been a follower since i randomly came upon your instagram account. My family and I are the owners of a private resort in Cartagena, Colombia (only 2.5 hour direct flight from Miami) (ranked # 1 in Colombia by Golf Digest http://www.golfdigest.com/story/best-golf-courses-in-206-countries Our course (ranked # 1 in Colombia by Golf Digest http://www.golfdigest.com/story/best-golf-courses-in-206-countries) is the first TPC managed property in South America and has a beautiful track that runs parallel to the Caribbean Sea. We hope to have you here someday. Jason l on 10 May, 2017 at 16:23 Reply Thanks for the cool website!! Great reviews. I’m from NJ but live in Charlotte currently and have been playing all the greats in pinehurst area. If your around the Roanoke VA area you should check out a course named Ballyhack, it’s a fun track! Chris Hanson on 14 February, 2019 at 01:12 Reply Hi Sean, love your Wisconsin reviews. Especially The Bull and Erin Hills. planning a trip there next year – but what are the mosquitoes like in October? And is October an OK month for golfing weather in the Kohler/Sand Valley/Erin Hills area? Rick Weinberg on 8 March, 2019 at 15:53 Reply Sean– I just got back from Bandon and have posted in your course reviews section evaluations of three of the four courses. All three get 5 stars out of 5, as does Old MacDonald, which I enjoyed almost as much as the others. Overall, I’d say my opinion of the four is exactly the same as yours: 1 Trails, 2 Pacific, 3 B. Dunes, and 4 Old Mac. And I have to say the off-course experience was as positive as the golf. The room at the Inn was great (especially with the view looking over the ravine to #18 green at B. Dunes!), the food was delicious, yet very reasonably priced, and the staff was amazing. By the way, next time you go, you may want to ask for Jeremiah (nicknamed Bullfrog, of course) as your caddie– he was wonderful. I’ll certainly be going back, especially in light of the fact that THEY’RE BUILDING A 5TH 18-HOLE COURSE!, mostly on the Sheep Ranch property. From Old Mac, one could see surveyor’s flags as well as some preliminary grading. The team of Coore/Crenshaw is designing, and the word is this one may surpass the other four, especially given the site. Regards, Rick Chris Kirby on 9 March, 2020 at 21:30 Reply Hi Sean, I just came across your site tonight and enjoyed it very much. I’ve been around the game for a lot of years and have opinions about many courses, as I have played over 90 of the world’s Top 100, 72 of the Top 100 in the US (I can explain that seeming anomaly another time), and all of the Top 100 in the British Isles (that may explain it). I’ve also played in 42 countries at last count. Re your most underrated courses, I would add Gulph Mills in King of Prussia, Pa., one of the best Donald Ross courses I’ve played and certainly one of the hilliest and toughest of his tracks. It is also very private. A couple of others: Nefyn and District in northern Wales (“poor man’s Pebble Beach”) and Pennard, a South Wales course as natural a links-style course you’ll ever play. Finally, I agree with you on Gleneagles Kings and Yale, but disagree on Castle Stuart (merit) and Pasatiempo (it is already highly rated by the golf intelligentsia. We should talk . . . Sean Ogle on 10 March, 2020 at 08:00 Reply Chris, thanks for sharing! Hopefully one day I get up to your level! Gulph Mills is an absolute gem. I played it on a brutally hot day, so hope to get back and play it under friendlier conditions. https://breakingeighty.com/gulph-mills-golf-club robert marvin on 10 March, 2020 at 11:55 Reply While it is fun to read about the most underrated golf clubs it doesn’t do most of us much good if they’re private and we’re not allowed to play. maybe you’ve already written about the 10 most underrated public courses but that would be a much more worthwhile article. Sheldon C. Lubin on 2 June, 2020 at 12:27 Reply You missed the 15th hole at TPC of Cromwell, CT at the Travelers Championship. From the back tees it is 296 yards. The pond is on the left and the woods are on the right. Brian nestler on 24 March, 2021 at 10:42 Reply Hi Sean! Just sitting here looking/reading your articles….love it!!! I’m taking a big golf trip(first time solo, only golf). So excited and loved reading about pinehurst! I’m gonna try and write about it…any tips? Thank you Brian!
