    The sound of the ball hitting the bottom of the cup.

    Trying to pull off a stinger and succeeding.

    Slow play

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,539 ✭✭✭Dante

    Nailing a flop shot.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,572 ✭✭✭newport2

    Those couple of seconds when you've finally flushed one, you're watching it in the air against a blue sky and it looks on right line with the pin...........

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,526 ✭✭✭Benicetomonty

    Nipping a wedge shot just right and watching it fizzing towards the pipe. Marvellous.

    Teeing off on the first on a lovely sunny morning with good company and enjoying the anticipation of the next few hours

    • That bit of moisture on the fairways early on a summers morning.
    • Sound of a well hit drive.
    • Feel of a well hit iron.
    • When that putt rolls exactly as expected, and hits the back of the cup.
    Perfection :D

    After a days work being out on the course till 10pm on a long summers evening!

  • Registered Users Posts: 965 ✭✭✭BraveDonut

    Driving in the gate on a fine morning knowing that you have 18 holes ahead of you

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,560 ✭✭✭willabur

    Nothing beats the feeling of seeing the ball travel through the air over a forced carry towards a perched target

    When you have looked forward to a new course you’re visiting for months, and you are finished up, it’s everything you expected

  • Registered Users Posts: 48,742 ✭✭✭✭Wichita Lineman

    Landing close to a pin on a Par 3 when your playing partners have all missed the green. :D

  • Registered Users Posts: 13,880 ✭✭✭✭callaway92

    Calling your shot in advance and hitting it exactly that way

    Days where you just seem to be making every makable putt

  • Registered Users Posts: 612 ✭✭✭mjsc1970

    The once in a blue moon perfect pro chip/pitch when it really needed it and it looked like I knew what I was doing.

  • Registered Users Posts: 26 bla.bla.b

    Following the flight path of a Draw* shot from distance into a narrow green.

    *High handicapper so Draw being completely accidental btw

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,541 ✭✭✭coillcam

    Getting up and down from a bunker.

    Finding ProV1s when you've gone looking for your €0.50 distance ball.

    Socialising with different people and making new mates.

    Absolutely nailing a hybrid or fairway wood off the deck and watching the ball ascend.

    Taking a new club out for the first round.

    Taking in the fresh air, experiencing nature, and spending 2-4 hours without a care in the world.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,494 ✭✭✭DJIMI TRARORE

    Finding your ball, everytime

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,883 ✭✭✭DuckSlice

    Two things that really get me going on the golf course!

    Absolutely creaming a nice low one with my 4 iron, Jesus, is there a better feeling!

    and a close second is a low spinney chip that just pulls up before the hole and rolls out to within a foot.

    And i really enojy the craic, and chats.

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,101 ✭✭✭✭Rikand

    Hitting the practice ground with a bag of balls and an unlimited amount of time to spend. Peace, tranquility and the joy of trying to work on something with my swing. God, I'd be out there all day (and no-one complaining about how long I'm taking :pac: )

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,886 ✭✭✭youcancallmeal

    Striking an iron well, even if it's offline I actually don't mind as long as I struck it well and it went the distance it was supposed to go.
    Hitting a long putt close to the hole, my pace is all over the place so I'm delighted when I can 2 putt from outside 20 feet.

    Judging the wind, elevation, temp etc just right on a par 3 in non normal conditions and using a club 2 up or 2 down to land it pin high in front of your mates feeling!

  • Registered Users Posts: 345 ✭✭frink

    Playing brutal for 15 holes only to play the last 3 perfectly. Just enough for you to love the game again and bring you back the following week

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,429 ✭✭✭blue note

    Taking on a difficult shot and pulling it off. Maybe you were forced into a flop shot or maybe you just said feck it, I'll go for that sucker pin. But you feel like the man when you do it.

    And of course - the big drive. The combination of wind, elevation, hard ground, a favourable bounce and most importantly nailing it! And suddenly you're 320 yards down the fairway and have a 9 iron into the par 5 green for your second. That definitely feels good.

    When you ask for one to bite and it actually does

  • Registered Users Posts: 48,742 ✭✭✭✭Wichita Lineman

    Being on the right side of an out of bounds stake.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,560 ✭✭✭willabur

    when the shape of the shot matches the shape of the hole

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,728 ✭✭✭Motivator

    Giving a 3 wood absolutely everything to a long par 5 and watching it sail through the air. I don’t think there’s a better feeling than nailing a fairway wood. The sound, ball flight and landing of a high one is so satisfying. On one of our par 5s your eyes can play tricks on you with the way the backdrop is. Sometimes you think you’re long and OB and the ball suddenly drops 30 yards short. Every once and a while you give a 3 wood everything and you end up pin high for a back pin. Another 15 yards and you’re OB so when the course firms up if you catch it thin you’re adios.

    The sun shining brightly and your tee time is fast approaching.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,806 ✭✭✭almostover

    Hitting the green on a driveable par 4. No better pleasure in golf. Followed by 3 putting for par!

    Hitting what you think is the perfect iron flush and hearing that lovely plop sound and seeing the little splash of water as your ball sinks to the bottom of the lake bliss
