Use to scout baseball players as well but finally gave that up.
To fit that with any other time consuming hobby is amazing.
On a quick detour off topic, IIRC, you are in the Dallas area. If so, any recommendations on golf courses in the area?
In Houston area but played most courses in Dallas in my younger years. Mostly the clubs as my best friend was the superintendent at Colonial in Fort Worth.
If you are in Dallas I can find a few. I know there is a good track in Allen, TX. Palmer design and challenging greens, Twin Creeks, I believe but haven't played it in years. The Cowboy Club is a course I have heard great things about but haven't played it.
Stonebriar country club in Frisco / McKinney area has one of their courses that the public can play. It is a Fazio design and quite challenging. More of a low handicapper type course. I use to play Stonebriar a lot 15-20 years ago when I was a competitive player.
Wait, the two of you are in Texas? I grew up in DFW and live in Dallas. Stronebriar and Colonial are two great courses.
My buddies and I normally go for the mid-range options that are $75 or less a round. Bear Creek, Prairie Lakes, Ironhorse, and Duck Creek are some of the ones we frequent.
In Houston, but get to Dallas all the time as I have lots of family there.
I see a lunch or happy hour in our futures
We ended up booking Stevens Park for Saturday and Cowboys Golf Club for Sunday. Should be fun. I'll let you know how they were.
Any favorite between Lockhart BBQ and Pecan Lodge?
