I played a round with friends on the Pebble Beach Golf Links course yesterday on the golf simulator at the Cocoa Beach Hilton. A very fun experience and at $30 per hour we saved a total of $1920 over the price of a foursome on the real course ($495 green fees with cart each). We used our own clubs and played shots exactly as if on the real course. Definitely worth checking out. Choose from dozens of world famous courses to play.

After enduring months of bad and dying greens in the spring and then an entire summer of temporary greens, the new ones have filled in and are open on all 27 holes at the Cocoa Beach Country Club. If you have played Cocoa Beach in the past, you're in for a treat at your next game. The old grass read somewhere around a 6 on a Stimpmeter but the new grass is currently somewhere around 8 to 9 and expected to be around 11 soon. That means fast putts and a whole new level of pucker when standing over a long downhill putt.
