There seems to be some real interest here. Maybe one of the mods can set up a series of live chats, seperated by regions to see if it's actually doable?

I'm game if someone wanted to do this in Texas

Another option along those lines would be Glen Mills.  Fantastic course in just across the DE/PA border.

 

Or something further west.  I'd love to play at Gettysburg.

Sounds like the response is overwhelmingly positive for the idea, but the logistics would be difficult & understandably so.

 

Here's an idea -

 

Every March I meet some old friends of mine in Charleston, SC for 4 days of golf. Most of them are from Akron, Oh. I come up from Orlando, others come from Key West, Atlanta, etc. The organizer is able to arrange an extremely reasonable package with a local hotel - this year it was only $420 for four night's lodging & four rounds of golf. Replays were like $20 if anyone wanted to for an extra 18. If we follow this model something could be arranged that is reasonably priced.

 

And here's my suggestion for a location - Myrtle Beach. TONS of courses & TONS of hotels. I'd be willing to bet there are some pretty great deals out there as the resorts trip over each other for our business. It doesn't hurt to have the Atlantic Ocean right there too for something to do outside of golf. And Myrtle has a bunch of great restaurants, golf shops (strip clubs hehe), sports bars, etc.

 

As far as time of year, I would suggest the fall, like October. The weather cools down & hurricane season is pretty much over.

 

So something like a 4-night package, day one is play wherever you want, days 2, 3, 4 we have some team events.

 

Thoughts?

Myrtle Beach is awesome. We did a 3 day, 4 round outing in the Litchfield Beach area a few years ago and it was only about $350.00 pp.

Think I'm one of the very few around the capital area, so the tourney would probably be organised elsewhere.

I think for something like this to work, there would need to be a series of regional outings. I live about an hour from Orlando and some of the best courses around. If there was something done in the Orlando area, I'd defly be interested.

 

 

 

Count me in the regional golf outing. I'm close to the same area as Jetsknicks1 (Jacksonville) and would LOVE to meet up with Trappers in the same area for a round of golf and drinks.Heck I've even played in Sunday tournys at Summer Glen and spent the rest of the day at Mic's 19th Hole so Orlando would be too bad a treck.

I spent 4 days in orlando and played every day. Definitely a good golf location. But i will also say that i live around some of the finest courses in this region. I would travel 4 hours to play though.

If there's anyone in the Boston area...

The best way to get it going would be to set up region specific threads, I think.

post #46 of 91

I'm game.

 

For upstate (central) NY, a natural choice for venue would be Turning Stone.  I'd splurge on greens fees for a "special occasion" golf outing as long at it's not the Atunyote course where the greens fees are a little out of my price range.

That's where I'll be in October.

I like this idea except that bold part makes me a tad uneasy. b1_ohmy.gif

This idea seems the most reasonable - well, not Pebble itself, but there are plenty of Monterey area courses that aren't $500 - or something like Palm Springs.

We could do a regional tournaments (NE, SW, NW, SW, Central South, Central North) with the winners meeting someplace for the ST Golfer of the Year award.  I'd of course have no chance winning, but it would be a fun community event that would give us all a chance to compete and meet each other.

I give that about a 0.0001% chance of happening.  But enjoy talking about it for a couple of days.  nerds

You're such a clown.  Fix your vanity cap.

why do you have a picture of a girl's ass as your avatar? 

 

Anyway, I would love to play some golf with some of you.  I can tell you though, these pipe dreams about regional tournaments and such aren't happening.  Have to be a nerd to even fancy the thought.

What do you have against girl's butts?

 

I suppose shirtless male anime is more your speed?  Before you retort, I get that your name is from a Nintendo video game.  Which by the way, is pretty nerdy..
