Temecula could be a lot of fun. Palm Srpings/Desert could be good too. Would love to join in if you all dont mind a hacker in your midst.

All are welcome!  We would like to encourage as many as possible to join and play.  You will have a blast!

Make Mike call ahead, tell the course you have 16 guys playing, and that you're coming as part of a Sand Trap outing and you'd like to work out a deal. You can all review the course, take and post pictures, link to the course's website, whatever.

 

Paying retail? C'mon. :) Think... ;)

 

Yeah sounds good.  I'll start working on that in '13

Joining just to post this. I am respectfully requesting that one of you guys use one of those cameras you use to film your swings to at least shoot some opening tee shots or something for us to watch. And maybe the green on the final hole?

 

Def some good ideas there.  Especially if since it would be easy to tie that into the course review.

Can we get a date set for this little rendezvous?

Good idea.

 

Well, Tristan recommends the beginning of April as the time to go because rates are going down and it hasn't gotten too hot yet.

 

Easter is March 31st.

 

I would say that puts the weekends of April 6-7 and April 13-14 as the possible frontrunners???

a.) The 6th / 7th works.

b.) 13th / 14th is possible as well.

 

20th / 21st & 27th / 28th - these two sets of weekends are bad for me in April, and I'd not be able to play as I have other functions that are planned.

I forgot to mention Passover (my wife's gonna kill me) but rest assured that is in March also so it won't get in the way.

 

I have no plans in April as far as I know, so I'm also fine with the weekends of the 6/7 and 13/14.

post #26 of 423

lets do the 6/7th.  unless someone chimes that cant make that...  

 

we should just pick a date so people from out of town can make their plans to fly inf1_cool.gif a2_wink.gif

Sounds good to me ... lets work on this weekend unless/until we hear from Tristan that it won't work (or enough others can't do it)

Good call!  To make it worth their while, we might have to play two rounds of golf.  Ever since Beach mentioned a TST Ryder Cup I've been thinking it would be really cool to do it that way.  Split in to two teams, then pair everybody up and play foursomes matches the first round, and singles matches the second round.

 

Yes, I know I'm getting ahead of myself there, let's just stick to getting the dates down for now.

TST Ryder Cup. Erik and Mike are team captains? Do they get to pick their teams and play?!
post #29 of 423

6th works for me....7th is my b-day, so I'll be playing Tustin Ranch that day (Free on your b-day!!!).

post #30 of 423

6th or 7th is fine here... The next two weekends I can't as it's the Coachella Fest and work is crazy busy.

 

Mike... do you still want me to take care of this or did you want to call around?

i guess the ^6th/7th^ is our weekend!

 

good to do it before the Coachella Crowds roll in as well...

Ok, bad news (for me). My sons birthday is April 2nd and since the previous weekend is Easter, we will be doing his party the weekend of the 6th/7th. Depending on what day/ time you guys end up at, maybe I can drive out there for one round of golf. But it definitely sounds like no full Palm Springs weekend is in the cards for me. :(

No big deal. Obviously the kids birthday comes first. If you can make it, great, if not, don't sweat it, especially since we plan to do one of these every few months or so.

I think we may have another possible course... I played the other day as a single at Desert Willow and got paired with a group from a local church who is having a tournament at the Classic Club in March and they told me the price for it was $60 or $70 (they couldn't remember for sure).

 

Anyways, I think that if we could get the Classic Club for that price, that'd be the way to go. It's an AMAZING course. In fact, it was built for the Bob Hope (now Humana Challenge), although it has been moved now.

 

Here is their site for those interested in checking it out:

Let me know what you guys think.

Looks gorgeous. If we could get those prices, I'm afraid I'd HAVE to play.

Would love to be a part of future outings, if possible.  The April meetup may be problematic, my wife is due April 10 with our 2nd.  I would love to be a part of future get togethers though.  I wish I'd known about this group before, Mile Square Park is less than 10 minutes from my front door.
