A place for people interested in learning about disc golf course design, seeing how others are designing courses, or showing off their latest designs!
A subreddit for disc golfers around the Metro Atlanta areas as well as the rest of Georgia. Please share course conditions, photos, and whatever else you think is relevant to disc golf. Please keep posts about disc golf.
What’s the community’s opinion on the best bag to take while traveling? I will be going on my first ever work trip this year to San Diego (will be flying) for about 4 days and will have some time to play some disc golf afterwards. I have read past posts on here and found that people have successfully used their bag as a carry on. However I am not wanting to do that as I have a lot of work stuff to carry on. I plan on putting my bag in my carry on suitcase. I have looked at the nut sacs, knock off nut sacs, and the upper park pinch (the OG version). I would love to hear other options. Thank you all for your time!
If I spray paint a golf ball, would it effect its motion like weight or spin? Because I want a golf ball that I can find easily because I have only been playing for 3 years and it bothers me when I am on the course and I can’t find my golf ball or if there are multiply which one would be mine?
There are so many similarities between Harpocrates and Miquella that I’d find it hard to believe that FromSoftware didn’t take any inspiration from this god. So I decided to examine this deity to see if I could find anything interesting. All screenshots shown in this post in the Haligtree and Elphael were taken in-game without freecam, though many were in first-person with the FPS mod,
which was done to get a closer look at some of the symbols and iconography. I know not all of FromSoftware’s assets aren’t entirely original for dev purposes of course (Path of Exile assets
reused for example) so I won’t be scrutinizing every symbol except for the more elaborate and relevant iconography.
Harpocrates is the Greek translation for “Horus The Child” (the Egyptian Hor-Pa-Khered),
the famed Egyptian son of Isis and Osiris. In Plutarch’s (Greek philosopher) account of the couple, Isis “gave birth to Harpocrates, imperfect and premature…”, further described as “prematurely delivered and weak in his lower limbs
”. To the Greeks, Harpocrates and Horus were not two separate deities, but “two degrees of evolution of the same god.” Very interestingly, Plutarch mentions Isis as “...the female principle of Nature
, and is receptive of every form of generation, in accord with which she is called by Plato, the gentle nurse and the all-receptive…"
I believe we can make some parallels to Marika. Mention of generation and other female qualities bring to mind the role of an Empyrean, one who is capable of birthing new progeny as potential successors to the next age. The principle of Nature itself could be applied to the metaphysical laws of the Elden Ring in-game in my opinion.
Miquella was born malformed and is a savior figure for albinaurics and demi-humans who embarked on a pilgrimage to his Haligtree. Harpocrates was favored by the rich as a god of plenty
, but was also loved by the masses. In Elphael we can see wheat
, a symbol of abundance scattered throughout the area when exploring.
Harpocrates is commonly depicted standing or striding on an animal (such as a goose or a horse), with side locks.
I was curious to see if Miquella is ever depicted with side locks but from the art of his kidnapping by Mohg and the teaser imager for the Shadow of the Erdtree, I’m not sure. The statues of Miquella at the Haligtree (by himself and with Malenia) don’t appear to depict him with any. It’s not really important, but it’d be cool if he did have them I feel. Miquella is shown in the dlc teaser riding Torrent so maybe his connection to our trusty steed was intentional by FromSoft if inspired by Harpocrates.
Terracotta figurines of Harpocrates often depict the young sun god emerging from a lotus flower
, and according to this overview of a figurine, “The cornucopia, representing fertility and prosperity, is a Greek motif; however, the association of child-gods with agricultural bounty has Egyptian parallels as well."
It’s interesting to me that the lotus flower is associated with Harpocrates, since we can immediately draw parallels between Malenia and her scarlet blooms. According to Plutarch, “...they portray the rising of the sun
in this manner to indicate allegorically the enkindling of the sun from the waters.” when they speak of the sun rising as a new-born babe from the lotus. He is a god of the rising sun, represented seated on a lotus capsule.
In Egyptian mythology, the lotus is a symbol of life, the fecundative (fertile, or producing new offspring or growth) power
of the Nile river, and was a source of food for not only Egypt, but the deltas of China and India (hence Brahma seated on a lotus) too. “By night it closes its leaves and submerges so deep under the water, that the hand cannot reach it. At dawn it directs itself eastwards to the light, and raises itself above the water and opens again.”
Thus the lotus is a symbol for the birth and rebirth of the sun. “It is then one of the ways of introducing the dead to the divine life in the rebirth by the lotus, so that men after death can be reborn from the lotus as the gods
From decay and death comes new life that bursts forth from the Scarlet Rot, and Malenia blooms as the goddess of rot at the roots of the Haligtree in a dramatic fashion.
Malenia’s name seems to mean “heir to the sun
which is very fitting seeing as the Golden Order’s gold has associations with it in my opinion.
“Shield of honor depicting a city crowned by the sun. It has seen better days. Much like the wear upon the shield, the Seat of the Sun is long faded away.
” - Sun Realm Shield
These shields can be found from the beastmen skeletons in Farum Azula, though they are also found elsewhere in the Lands Between. Farum may very well have been the seat of the sun in ancient times. With Godrick also referring to a dragon as a “true-born heir”, I don’t feel the notion of the Greater Will being the sun is outlandish at all. We see a great light on the horizon while fighting the Elden Beast, and other celestial objects such as the moon are great powers in their own right.
He is depicted with his finger to his lips (a gesture to keep quiet about Sarapis being only human) and as such, was later called a god of silence. According to Plutarch though, the motion is actually little Harpocrates suckling his finger, as the motion in Egyptian means “eat” or “speak” and “Isis, in order to nourish him, puts the finger in his mouth instead of the breast.” Later depictions of Harpocrates as a deity of silence are Greaco-Roman, not Egyptian.
I didn't see a connection between Miquella and the later role of silence attributed to Harpocrates until I learned of the deity being associated with Mercury
in the Renaissance-era. "The theme of silence is not just a Christian one: the association of wisdom with silence goes back to classical times, to writers such as Pindar, Euripides and Plutarch
This is immediately significant, as not only have others put forward arguments of Miquella and Mercury in the alchemical sense, but Euripides' play The Bacchae
in my opinion,
was the basis for the tragedy of Miquella, and the myths of Plutarch are a heavy focus in this post.
"During the Greek period, however, a mistaken interpretation of this gesture arose, namely that by it, Harpocrates commanded silence concerning divine mysteries
. Renaissance mythographers and humanists accepted this explanation and Harpocrates appears as the god of silence in, amongst others, Gyraldus, Cartari and Valerian."
"Sometimes in Renaissance writing, the god Harpocrates was conflated with Hermes or Mercury, god of Eloquence
, for a play on the rhetorical commonplace of eloquent silence."
As I have only recently stumbled upon this Renaissance-era connection, I will have to explore Mercury and the Cymbalum Mundi
at a later time, since Plutarch's connections to sleep and dreams are another avenue I need to explore further in relation to Miquella, and putting both in this post would bloat it.
In Egypt, Horus the god was represented by a winged solar disc
, symbol of the sun, which later gave rise to the cosmic “clipeus”, or world circle with its cosmocrater (ruler of the world) inside of it during Graeco-Roman times.
Throughout Elphael and especially near the roots in the Haligtree, we find this symbol
of two griffin-like figures underneath the Haligtree inside of a circle. It seems to me this visual was directly inspired by this depiction of Harpocrates
inside of a solar disc (surrounded by an ouroboros), accompanied by two Agathodaemones
, “noble spirits”, representing Isis and Osiris.
Furthermore, in Elphael we can find more similar “noble spirits” depicted upside down
. With this in mind, I’m comfortable with interpreting the symbol of the Haligtree over two Agathodaemones
as Miquella, god of the world depicted inside, shown with his parents Radagon and Marika.
Very interesting that this imagery is seen when Miquella is inside his bloody cocoon
. Note the pelvic bones that look similar to the “Agathodaemones” at the Haligtree, with the Empyrean literally inside of a new circle. In my last Miquella post arguing his tragedy mirrors The Bacchae
, just as Pentheus’ gruesome demise seems a cosmic joke to Dionysus, Miquella’s aspirations of godhood have been turned on his head, becoming a literal surrogate to another god entirely. All of this symbolism at the Haligtree seems more thematic than indicative of some sort of convoluted plot by the Empyrean to let himself be Mohgnapped while having placed clues beforehand just for fun.
Later depictions of Harpocrates with Isis and Osiris according to El-Khachab
seem to be Gnostic
, “for in the mode of the Kabbalah, the two arms of God or the first cause, the infinite light, the Ensoph
symbolize the second triad of the sephiroth, since the right arm is love, Chesed
, and the left one is justice or strength, geburah
. The former, Chesed
, is the life-begetting principle, while the left arm represents might and from the union of the two comes tifereth
, beauty or rather mercy, rachamzm
, which is the eminent quality and principle of the Christian teaching,' and the assurance of the moral order of the world.”
“The first triad of the ten sephiroth, which are the qualities or the agencies serving as the media for the manifestations of God in the finite, represents Him as the Thinker of the universe. The second triad interprets Him as the moral power of the universe, and the third one represents the material universe;”
I’ve spoken of “Sophia” before in my Bacchae
post, where I argued Sophia the archetype is present in-game as Marika
, but also as the moral term; the self-knowledge of one’s place in the world, knowing the limits that compose human fate
, and the assurance of moral order shown by El-Khachab relates to this idea, as the Order in-game is dictated by the Elden Ring. Every pistis Sophia
(relating to the god) seems to have its own Horus, as shown in this image
with the name Harpocrates at the bottom-left, only strengthening the notion that the Sophia and Harpocrates archetypes are represented in-game as Marika and Miquella
in my opinion.
Back to Plutarch’s account of Isis and Osiris, I wonder if partial inspiration for the shadows in-game are from Isis finding the child of her deceased husband Osiris and sister Nephthys: “And when the child had been found, after great toil and trouble, with the help of dogs which led Isis to it, it was brought up and became her guardian and attendant
, receiving the name of Anubis, and it is said to protect the gods just as dogs protect men." Plutarch also mentions the special Dog-star of Isis: Cyon (Sirius).
Another interesting tidbit are the mentions of the sisters Isis and Nephthys as “...the face of Isis on one side, and on the other the face of Nephthys [bottom of the circumference of the sistrum]. By these faces they symbolize birth and death
, for these are the changes and movements of the elements.” This is in regards to the world as a sistrum (rattle of a snake), where all things in existence need to be shaken, rattled, never to cease their motion
, but woken up and agitated when they grow drowsy and torpid.
I’ve argued before
that Miquella’s unalloyed gold is immutable (unchanging) in a world that is fundamentally one of vicissitude (change between opposites
), and the world described as a sistrum by Plutarch where things never cease their motion fits in quite nicely in my opinion. The sisters Isis and Nephthys being a dualism of life and death to me, bring to mind the Empyreans Marika The Eternal and the Gloam-Eyed Queen, life and death, in opposition. This doesn’t suddenly mean the GEQ is Marika’s sister, but I had always thought she was at least a Numen, since their longevity seems to make them good candidates for hosting the Elden Ring.
Plutarch also assigns Isis to Earth and Love to Osiris. For me personally, I assign Earth to Marika as the Elden Ring within her is “the wellspring of all joy” in the words of Enia and once bore fruit in the Age of Plenty, relating to Sophia. Radagon and Love are inseparable in my view, as he loved the perfection he sought above all else, and may have always loved Rennala even after leaving her in my opinion
(though there's still much to debate about that in fairness). Overall, I strongly believe inspiration was taken from these myths.
As for Horus-the-Child, he is neither eternal, unaffected, or imperishable but “being ever reborn, contrives to remain always young and never subject to destruction in the changes and cycles of events
(the sun that renews itself daily)
Most interestingly, Plutarch mentions the reason that Harpocrates was born frail, referencing Plato’s Symposium
in regards to Love being the child of Plenty and Poverty
. In the Symposium
, Diotima showed Socrates “that Love was neither, but in a mean between fair and foul, good and evil, and not a god at all, but only a great demon or intermediate power... who conveys to the gods the prayers of men, and to men the commands of the gods.”
This intermediate power in neoplatonic thought would be a demi-god
. Miquella’s name seems to be “a variation of Miguella, itself a feminine version of Miguel, a name of Hebrew origin meaning ‘who is like God.’”
The name fits his demi-god status quite well, but what of being born of Poverty and Plenty?
Diotima notes that Love, as the son of both, partakes of their natures and is full and starved by turn. “Like his mother he is poor and squalid, lying on mats at doors (compare the speech of Pausanias); like his father he is bold and strong, and full of arts and resources
. Further, he is in a mean between ignorance and knowledge:—in this he resembles the philosopher who is also in a mean between the wise and the ignorant.”
Plutarch says of the duo that “Poverty, wishing for children, insinuated herself beside Plenty
while he was asleep, and having become pregnant by him, gave birth to Love, who is of a mixed and utterly variable nature
He also speaks on their natures similarly since “...the son of a father who is good and wise and self-sufficient in all things
, but of a mother who is helpless and without means and because of want always clinging close to another
and always importunate over another. For Plenty is none other than the first beloved and desired, the perfect and self-sufficient; and Plato calls raw material Poverty, utterly lacking of herself in the Good, but being filled from him and always yearning for him and sharing with him.”
In Pausanias’ speech on Love in the same Symposium
, he says there are two kinds; the first is noble, concerning the intelligence of man
, “without wantonness or lust”, while the second is a more vulgar love, a love of the body rather than the soul, and of power and wealth
Malenia is bold and strong like Radagon, while Miquella has inherited his father's talents for arts and resources. They are also afflicted with crippling weaknesses in turn.
I’d like to be very speculative right now about the true nature of the twins’ maladies, so feel free to disregard this next theory as mostly speculation. What if there’s another reason the twins were born malformed that has to do with their parents’ character rather than their relation
(incest)? Radagon embodies Plenty in my opinion, through his journey of Golden Order Fundamentalism, mastering sorceries and incantations in his journey to be complete, having skills in crafts like sewing, and founding a school of thought that studies the Elden Ring through scholarly means. The love he practices seems to be a nobler one according to Pausanias, involving the intelligence of man
in his journey for perfection.
I’ve argued before that Radagon represents the Intellect that comes into conflict with the Soul.
Marika, the archetype of Sophia (who embodies the Soul) on the other hand, was chosen to be an Empyrean, having godhood thrust upon her because of her physical attributes (Numen, able to bear successors). She, like Poverty, clung close to another
, Godfrey, relying on his strength to conquer the Lands Between, and dismissed him to serve her own ends. The love she pursued was more vulgar, loving the power
that Hoarah Loux’s bodily strength brought her, not his mind, which is one of extreme amathia
(self-ignorance resulting in cruel violence, barbarism). His love for Marika may have also been of the low kind, because I can't imagine any other reason his cave-man brain would choose Marika. The twins were born quite a while after her Age of Plenty (during Godfrey’s reign) ended, and her Erdtree was sick with sprouts afflicting it, furthering her character as one of Poverty
Elden Ring’s world is fundamentally one of vicissitude in my opinion,
(change between opposites and contraries) and I posit that the twins were subject to these forces when they were born because of their parent’s divine natures, with Miquella forever young (too little entropy, which could relate to the Law of Causality) due to the reasons Diotima and Plutarch said of Harpocrates, and due to what I choose to dub “The Law of Vicissitudes”: One cannot exist without the other, and as all things have their opposites and contraries
, his twin Malenia was born with too much entropy in turn, afflicted by the influence of the Goddess of Rot.
Since this theory of Plenty and Poverty is very speculative, the fact of the matter is that the simplest explanation for the malformed twins is the self-incest of Radagon/Marika. At the very least, I believe it is still appropriate to view the Plenty/Poverty dynamic as thematically relevant in Elden Ring. SOURCES:

so back story. me and my bf have some friends they are dating and live together. we disc golf with them and yesterday we went to play and we were sharing vapes and stuff and him and his gf were sharing their vape bc they always share one. and i wipe mine off a little every time someone else hits it. the gf offered me the vape and i subtly wiped it off but not super well. and my bf was hitting off theirs and later they told us that the bf was tu for 3 days straight and his coworkers all got the same thing from hitting the same vape(it was the vape before the one they have now). and she said that he had gotten over the sickness 2 days ago and she never tu she just had a really bad stomach ache one day. and before we left my bf smoked weed w them out of the same pipe and he didn’t find out they were sick til after we left. but now i’m wondering if we will catch it. it’s been 24 hours since then and we’re fine as of rn but i just ate and couldn’t finish my food now i’m worrying again. like if they live together in a house fulher siblings and parents and his gf didn’t get sick we should be fine right?

[D for vintage] Platinum Pocket Pen w/18k factory Music nib! $200+shipping
This pen is quite unusual in that you definitely don’t see them everyday. While I’m not an expert on Platinum as a brand, I do know these pens are few and far between. In fact, this is the only one I’ve ever seen available and I paid a pretty penny for it. I’m sure there are others out there, but they rarely come up for sale. This is a must have for any Platinum collectors! The 18k music nib writes absolutely beautifully and has a bit of spring. The pen is also in really good shape and is ready to write your sweet, sweet music! If you’re a Platinum collector(or a traveling composer), this is a must have pen for you ;-)
[D for vintage] Parker Vacumatic in Gray Pearl Shadow-Wave w/14k Med. flexible nib $125+shipping
Up next is a fantastic user grade Vac that would be perfect for someone who’s either just getting into vintage, or for the person who wants a vintage pen to carry with them daily without having to worry about losing an uber expensive pen. The pen presents very nicely indeed, but is user grade with brassing to the trim and a mark or 2 on the body. The nib is awesome though, and has rare flexibility to add plenty of character to your writing. It is not easy to find a Vac with flexibility at this price point!
[D for vintage] Wahl full length slender pen in Jade celluloid w/14k Fine flexible nib $125+shipping
Those that know me here know that I collect Wahl as a primary focus. This pen was an early acquisition and is perfect for getting into vintage. The Jade celluloid has discoloring, as do most pens made of this material. The color on this pen is a lot better than some however. The nib is awesome! A fine with flexibility to take your writing to the next level! The nib writes really, really well! I’ve traded up to a similar pen that has better coloring, so this pen must go. Discover why I love Wahl so much! I guarantee you would not be disappointed with this pen if you purchased it!
I still didn’t take a picture of this pens awesome nib… UPDATE: pictures added
[D for vintage] Ingersoll all metal pen w/14k Med. Stub Italic nib $105+shipping
This pen is great for somebody who wants to experience vintage stub flex without breaking the bank. While still a stunning pen, the exterior does have some wear, however it’s a very old pen! This is a twist filler, requiring that one simply remove the blind cap, insert the nib in ink, and twist the metal piece to “deflate” the sac. After releasing the metal piece and allowing the sac to fill with ink, boom, the pen is filled! The nib is what makes this pen special! A #2 Ingersoll, it is a truly flexible
, italic like MF nib. There is some feedback when writing, however this pen is a whole lot of fun to write with! If you’ve never experienced a flexible stub, here’s your chance to do so in a relatively inexpensive manner!
[D for vintage] Unbranded Blue Oversized Flat top pen w/14k #8 F stubby nib $120+shipping
This is an extremely
good quality, unbranded oversize vintage pen. The large 14k Warranted #8 stubby nib writes extremely well. Great pen for EDC due to its budget conscious price :-) The thing is, you don’t give up anything with this pen! It writes splendidly with line variation due to having a bit of springiness and the stub like nature of the nib. Very nice pen that would be a great starter vintage pen too! If you’re looking for a wallet friendly, ergonomically ideal, oversize vintage pen that not wallet busting expensive, there is no better option than this! Larger pens were not common back in the day so this is a very nice departure from the normally relatively small vintage pens. You can feel the quality of the pen as you cap it, it’s solid! Great pen!!
[D for vintage] Blackbird pen w/14k Fine Flexible nib $150+shipping
I have a thing for Blackbird pens. While in user grade condition, this pen sports a really special
nib. The 14k Fine nib on this Blackbird is ready to take you on all kinds of flexy adventures! The trim is brassed and there are a few light scratches from careful use over the years but personally, I find that’s part of the charm with these old pens. You can tell that its previous owner loved it and used it faithfully. The nib is in perfect condition and is nice and luxuriously
soft! In this pens case, it’s all about this wonderful nib! Try truly upper echelon vintage flex at a relatively affordable price!
[D for vintage] Parker Duofold aerometric filling pen w/14k F nib $95+shipping
Next up is a trusty Duofold! I continue making cuts of duplicate pens. I may be selling this pen, but it’s a great
example of one of Parker’s most vaunted models! The Newhaven factory nib writes with the perfect wetness, is smooth, and has a bit of flex. A quintessential vintage pen, no collection is complete without one! This pen has micro scratches consistent with careful usage though the passing of time. Trim looks very nice for its age. Overall, a very nice example of this model and a great writer!
D for vintage] Parker Duofold AF w/14k F nib $115+shipping
Another Duofold, this one an AF(aluminum-filler) model! Matching its brother above, this is a reliable, excellent writing pen that is ready to write for many more decades! I love Duofolds and have quite a few different models. You can’t go wrong with these pens as they make excellent everyday writers! This particular example is in nice condition with only a bit of brassing to the cap band and fine microscratching as a result of use throughout its life. Again, this is a Parker you simply must have in the collection!
[D for vintage]Good Service Pen Co. Oversized Mottled Red and Black Hard Rubber Flat top w/#8 Med Stub Flex nib (MRBHR) $130+shipping
This is a really special one here and really, probably one I shouldn’t sell….This is a large, oversized, beautiful mottled red and black hard rubber(MRBHR) pen! MRBHR mesmerizes me! I mean the color absolutely POPS
on this pen! I love looking at it and can get lost just staring at the patterns :-) This is a nice example of one of the most beautiful materials of all time to make a pen out of, imho of course. There is some brassing to the trim, a personalization(small and very difficult to see due to the pattern in the material), and a singular scrape in the body, but is a drop dead gorgeous pen! Take a look in the gallery….the pen is absolutely stunning! This is another pen where the nib is grand!. This pen has a ridiculously
soft #8 flexible stub nib that exhibits perfect flow! The tipping is very worn but it is incredibly
smooth and fun to write with! This nib is so soft that it’s quite easy to touch the feed against the paper if you’re not paying attention….a good problem to have lol, and a minor price to pay for jaw dropping writing imo….a great writing experience! Modern pens below!
[B+] Lamy Accent Briarwood w/14k Med nib $110+shipping
Lamy’s Accent is a great way to enjoy Lamy’s gold nibs. This pen is customizable in that you can purchase additional barrel inserts and swap them out if you wanted. The Medium nib writes beautifully and is exactly what one would expect from a Lamy nib. This pen is in really good shape and needs a new owner who will actually use it!
[B+] Lamy Studio Palladium w/14k Fine nib $120+shipping
There’s probably not a whole lot I can say about the Lamy Studio that hasn’t already been said and they are indeed, great pens! This one is in great condition and also writes beautifully. I’ve always liked the way Lamy gold nibs feel against paper. I also really like the ergonomics of this pen. For my hands they’re extremely comfortable to hold, and quite grippy given the texture on the section. I’m primarily a vintage guy and don’t use this pen nearly enough to justify owning it.
[B+]Platinum PTL-5000a w/14k Fine nib $80+shipping
This Platinum model was discontinued several years ago. While it’s a great pen that writes wet and smooth for a Japanese fine, I just don’t use it. These pens gained an almost cult like following and were known to have nibs with flexibility. This example is no different. Great pen in great condition and with a great nib!
[Parts due to no nib, otherwise B+] Gravitas Pocket pen-Aluminum NO NIB $65+shipping
Gravitas pens are very popular right now! It’s no wonder as you can feel the quality of workmanship as soon as you pick one of these pens up. This pen has no sign that it’s ever been used really, and is in very nice condition. It doesn’t come with a nib but will accept any #6 Jowo you’d like to put in it! Grab this pen at a discount and without the wait of shipping across the pond.
SOLD BEFORE LISTING[D due to nib swap but otherwise A2] Pelikan M200 w/SS Med. nib
My dad got me into disc golf and this was his first disc, he lost it a long time ago but we were curious what the numbers on it were. I looked at plenty of websites but none had results
So just found out about this today. My family owns a large property with a big lake in the center. It used to be a golf course but we closed down last Sumner. The rentor of our A frame house started to follow this dude on Tiktok who, from my understanding, preached about being a prophet and helping people while traveling through catching rides with people.
The Rentor drove up to the next state to pick him up and let him live with him for a while. I'm not exactly sure how long due to not living near the rest of my family. During this time he made multiple videos on the property, one featuring the gate to the road claiming it was an eye of the needle and he was a camel, and another featuring my sisters house in the background. He also claimed that the lake would heal you and people started to ask where he was.
Eventually my grandpa kicked him out and restricted the rentor from the rest of the property. We caught the Rentor stealing some owl statues from us (we raise birds so we keep these to make predators think owls are there) and was given a month to leave. Now the Rentor is in jail for attempting to kill a man and I'm moving back home to live in the A frame.
Just felt like I needed to get this off my chest.
Doing an event outside at a golf course (portable bar). Someone got a drink inside and came to me and asked if I had any mule mix. Confused, I asked “for a Moscow mule?” She said yes. I said “like ginger beer?” Excitedly she said “yes that’s it!” So I poured more ginger beer in her glass and she went on her way. But yeah.. never heard it called mule mix before.. or am I the idiot? Lol thanks
As anybody who lives in naples and golf’s already knows, it’s expensive. The best time of the year for me is summer as the have the summer golf pass which allows me to play for cheap at so many great courses. My friends who promised me many rounds this summer have deserted me. Now I come asking for help from internet people. I’d love to have semi consistent summer golf pals that play 2-4 times a month. If anyone has any desire in linking up to play would love to connect.
I live right by Arrowhead and tend to play panther run the most as it’s a great course for super cheap.
I’m a 26 year old guy who shoots anywhere from 86-95 most rounds. I think I’m pretty easy to get a long with but none of my friends ever want to play so maybe I’m wrong.
Anybody that’s interested in getting some rounds in feel free to DM me or comment here.
