Default Twosome allowed

My wife and I like to golf from time to time and like to go out just the 2 of us. Is that allowed or would we be paired up with another twosome? We are not good and we never keep score we just like to go out from time to time. We also hate people pushing us from behind. The winner is usually the one of us who loses the fewest balls.

Is there a place for us or should we just leave our clubs up north.

When will you be here? Are you plying the 9 hole courses or the championship courses? What time of the day do you want to play?

You can easily play by yourselves as we do if you play at unpopular times and plan, usually evenings.

What you described sounds to me like the average golfer here in TV...."...not very good..."

If you can learn to fill your divots....fix your ball marks on the greens...rake the bunkers.....

You will be far and away ahead of many, MANY wanna bees here in TV (I tried to avoid saying most).

I see np problem with being a 2-some. Keep in mind, your chance become less as the seasonal residents start arriving. Based on what you said about being an occasional player & you don’t take it serious, I trust you do know golf etiquette & follow it. Enjoy the game when you can

Pay the $8 a month and get villages.net. You can now go on the t time website the night before you want to golf and see the unassigned t times. Pick a time showing 4 vacancies and make your reservation. You still might be assigned someone to join you but your odds are better to golf alone than making a reservation.

If you are a novice, play the par 3's. Hit from the front it's, pick up after 6 swings and you can meet some great people. Our best friends we met at a par 3 where both the wives were beginners. Bring the sticks.

It is unlikely that you will be able to play alone during high season. Summer is much easier, although never guaranteed.

If you are keeping up with the group ahead of you, then you are OK. If not and the group behind you is 'pushing you', then you should pick up and move forward.

One of the best things about golf is that beginners can play without affecting anyone else on the course. We were all beginners once. Keep playing, and don't be concerned about playing with others.

Lastly, choose executive courses with a "1" or "2" rating. These have fewer hazards and you will keep your balls longer.

Nothing more to say. Some great advise from
everyone. Maybe see Maria at Palmer golf school.

During the summers, on the Executive Courses, in the afternoons - your chances are very good IF you reserve in advance (you can even look to see if you schedule it for just the two of you - but be aware that doesn't mean they can't add someone to your 2some, later on). However, during the season? Fuhgeddaboutit - you'll be paired, nearly all the time. It is what it is - lots of people trying to walk-on, better weather, and more people.
