How far away is your 'home' course (where you a member, post scores for GHIN/handicap, belong to the men's club, play in league, etc.)?
I was thinking how lucky I am to have only a 15 minute drive one way after hosting a couple from Japan, staying with friends, out to play a round recently. Their rounds of golf are an all day experience (commute for more than an hour one-way and crowded course conditions).
On the other end of the spectrum, I sure miss the life enjoyed in our first home located in a townhouse community and the homeowner's association owned our private 9 hole course. My wife and I literally walked across the street and jumped in on hole 3 and started playing several times a week after work or weekends.
