God, I hope not!!!  The deal is that the first beer costs the temperature.  I played there a couple of weeks ago, on what will probably end up being the hottest day of the year, and the first beer was $0.90. ;)

 

 

Just as an FYI for those coming from out of town ...

 

Climate [edit]

San Clemente enjoys a Mediterranean climate where temperatures tend to average around the 70's. The warmest month of the year is August with an average temperature of 79 °F (26 °C). The coldest month is December with an average temperature of 64 °F (18 °C). The annual rainfall in 2010 was 10.5 inches (270 mm) and the annual days of sunshine was 310.

 

Frankly, I have no idea how I can tolerate working in such an extreme environment!  Good lord, look at those extremes!!  79 in the summer all the way down to 64 in the winter!!  It's frickin unbearable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is labeled wrong.  The bottom should say "as ranked by golfnow golfers .... who smoke crack"

 

Emerald Isle might be the worst golf course I've ever played.  Not saying the rest are bad, just saying that the inclusion of that one really poisons the results.

 

P.S.  Anybody else notice that on the golf channel commercials with the fake Old Tom Morris and his sheep, at the end him and his friend are always choosing Mt. Woodson on the website?  That is the end of my "random, completely useless trivia" portion of the day. :)

I feel badly for the fair skinned, sensitive SoCal group.

 

Just think if you had to live somewhere that dropped from 110 in the summer to 25 in the winter.

 

Somewhere ... like ... N. Texas.

 

Don't know if that toughens one up or leads to heart failure...a2_wink.gif

 

Gawd, I need to move back to SoCal...a1_smile.gif

 

No offense to Texans reading this.

Excellent.  OK, I think I already had you down for a +1, and with Colin we were at 14, so now that makes 15 (with a possibility of 19)

 

Lihu ... where are you???

 

20 would be a nice round number!

Let's get a good head count. If you are bringing a +1, a name would be appreciated. Also need to know handicap index (if you don't have one make a good guess). Once we have all that we can figure out groups. I'd be happy to do it this time around. I also like the modified stableford we played last time if everybody wants to do that again.

Sorry you're locked in to your TST profile index as of 5/15.  You bring your 11.0 to the party and get to dancin'!

 

As far as San Diego is concerned, my boss (or the owner/CEO of the company I work for) owns a golf course down there somewhere.  I always forget the name of it but I'll look into it and see if it's worth trying to swing a deal there.

 

Also, I will likely be going solo for this trip based on the location of the course.  Beachcomber will be sharing his bunkbed with me. b2_tongue.gif

I have a couch you can crash on! LOL  Mind you... I have a crazy Vizsla who will be jumping on you and burrowing into your space!

Yeah, I would be interested in hearing which course it is.

Up to you ... I'm happy to book it myself if you're too busy.  (I know you're in Flerida right now :))

Had to google that.  Looks like a big a** dog.  

 

I'm guessing the San Diego airport is just as far from San Clemente as LAX?

Fly into John Wayne in Santa Ana if you can...

yeah, as far as convenience goes, John Wayne, then sd, then lax last. The drive (barring traffic) is probably identical from both to sc. And you'll have more traffic on average from la.

Orange County/Santa Ana (SNA)?

 

Are we basically confirmed on the 23rd now or should I wait to book?
