Yesterday, we played the first TST outing here in Socal at Mile Square golf course in Fountain Valley. We had 10 guys, and it was a lot of fun. Hopefully we can replicate this type of outing in the future, and many of us felt it was something we could do on a quarterly basis.
So in this thread, lets discuss geography, course(s), date and time we want to have the next outing at. This can be up for open discussion and we can weigh the pros and cons about each. The goal is to get more guys to join us. So please direct users to this group discussion that are in the Socal area. Or better yet, if you have friends or family in the Socal market who likes to play golf, let them know about TheSandTrap and have them join us on the forum. Hopefully they will start using this forum as well.
A few things to consider based on discussions we had yesterday after our outing at Mile Square....
1.) Tristan lives in Palm Springs/Desert area and there are boat loads of courses we could play in the area. Ideas were being kicked around about making a road trip that way and playing a round (or two) during the Spring, before it gets too hot in the desert.
2.) MvMac lives in San Diego - and we talked about playing there - possibly at Torrey Pines. This is another solid option, my concern would be the cost of the round... As I know many of us are on golf 'budgets'. But with the round being many weeks/months out - perhaps we could plan accordingly? Torrey Pines is definitely on my 'bucket list'... And I want to play it. So I'd definitely be interested playing Torrey. But my thought is that maybe we should play in San Diego in the Summer (2nd quarter of 2013) as the weather will be a little nicer/warmer?
So I'll stop rambling now... What do you guys think? Let's get some ideas flowing so that we can put together another fun outing. Note, for those that attended yesterdays event... Also please comment on things you would like to see continued (things you enjoyed/liked) about the outing at Mile Square, and things you would like to see modified (disliked). We want everyone to enjoy this so that this type of event can grow and become more exciting as time moves on.
