It really depends and I can play above or below that on any given day. I'm sure I can say this for everybody, all skill levels are welcome

 

Thanks, please keep the thread up to date as you pick a date / course.  Mid March might be a little early depending on how the winter pans out.  Here's hoping that Punxsutawney Phil doesn't see his shadow.

I will keep everyone updated. Mid March was just a shot in the dark. I think last year my home course opened March 10th. So we will see.

Haha, wow small world. I'm at dukes every week, love that place.

The beer menu is phenomenal. I participated in the 12 beers of Xmas. I enjoy the place in the summer because of the beer garden. Good grub too.

Small world indeed. Have played at Cary CC, Pinecrest, and Redtail near Crystal Lake, often followed by burgers afterwards at Dukes. And originally from Evanston, although I've not ever golfed near there, unless you count the little course on the sewage canal where I first hit a ball in the last century.

This sounds fantastic, I've always wanted to play up in chicago. I live in west lafayette but I am not allowed to drive, but if it's set up enough in advance I might be able to figure something out with the bus

I'll participate.  Probably won't play, but would like to meet and greet.  I'm in the far south reaches of Chicagoland and golf is really cheap down here, so i have a hard time justifying playing expensive courses.  And to me, anything much over 30 bucks is expensive.

 

And, i can't walk the course because i have MS and RA.  Can still play some (finished 4.5 last year), but can't walk 4 miles carrying clubs anymore.  So, when i say 30 bucks, i'm including the cart.

 

Yeah, golf is cheap down here.

Skokie is a little far for every weekend for me, but if you get a foursome, I might be interested in being a sub.

I am not available to play every weekend, I travel M-Th for work so playing every weekend would be a no-no with the family. I could probably play once or twice a month. 

 

This is my suggestion, pick 4 area's of the area (North, South, West, and City perhaps?)

 

My suggestion would be to do a rotation.  Week one for instance is up north, Week 2 west, etc. 

 

Then 2 weeks prior to the tee off, post on this thread, the course, and the preferred tee time range.  With most courses taking a 1 week in advance, this gives everybody on the thread 1 week to respond before somebody owns making the actual tee time.

 

Somebody that lives in the area should own picking a course, posting the cost for a round, and making the tee time for that course.

Is anybody interested in a knock the rust off 9 next Saturday the 30th?  The forcast looks a little chilly (high of 51) but sunny.  If you guys are game, If anybody is game, I can pick a course that is centrally located to everybody.  I have plans in the evening, so would prefer something around a 10AM tee time.

Would love to but we're out of town for spring break. Hopefully next time.
