    Back in town for a few weeks and would like to golf a round or two. Wife doesn't golf so I am looking for partner.
    I am a bogey to double bogey golfer. I am delighted with a par. I am not a long hitter is my problem. Par 4's
    take me 3 hits for the green. Anyway I would like someone who is the same type or doesn't mind golfing with someone
    lacking the great golf gift as a partner,

    Not sure if they allow two-some or we would be paired with another two but at least I would have one player who would
    know in advance my skill level. I hate to disturb a 0 handicap golfer watching me hack a few from time to time. I think you
    golfers understand what I am saying.

    I am open to any golf course but it doesn't have to be a 5 star course for me.

    never hurts to make a new friend

    BTW I live close to Sante Fe casino but I can travel anywhere in town

    Tom, I won't be in town until Oct, but would love to team up with you.
    I'll try to contact you when the time gets closer.
    I usually play Rhodes Ranch and Wildhorse.

    Rhodes Ranch, I like the layout. Great service. Price depends on what I can fandangle on the internet. ($60 ish) If you live locally I'm sure you can get a better deal being a LV resident.
    Check my countdown and let me know, we'll tee it up!!

    Tom, if you've played other Ted Robinson-designed courses, and I'd say we all probably have, you'll know RR before getting out there. That's not necessarily good, that's not remotely a slam; he just had a distinct design pattern that played out of over hundreds of real estate golf properties. Double-front fairways, palm trees, corralling shoulders and the signature watery par 3s. I'd say it is a better play for locals than visitors given the competition out there.

    OK then writer man. Being a once a year tourist, a bogey golfer and capping green fees at $80. What would you recommend?

    Playfully sarcastic!!

    Tuscany is about that price. It all depends what time of year you are visiting.

    Show me some affordable golf. Pretty please.

    I'm used to 18+cart for $20-30 at the "nicer" places in Iowa.
