What time are people planning to show up?

 

Well, first tee time is 7:52, so I'll probably be there by 7 to give myself plenty of time to warm up and putt and everything.

 

Drew (or anybody else that has played there), do they serve breakfast there?

I don't know, but if they do, make sure you order super-runny French toast.

Looks like the breakfast is just simple stuff that you can purchase and take with you during the round.  I'll probably stop and eat somewhere before I get to the course.  Sunday is the only day I get to eat whatever I want, and I typically cook a big breakfast.

They have Sunday brunch starting at 10, not sure if they're open before that. I'm gonna guess no.

I heard there are forced carries on the back nine. Can all handicaps at and above 17 or kids under 16 years  also play from the whites as well?

I believe all of the kids are already playing from the white according to Tristan's revised groupings.  Are there any others?

 

And since the 20+ handicaps are already playing from the whites, the only person who would be affected by a 17+ threshold is bmartin at 17.6.

Kids and those with handicaps above 20 are playing the white tees.


Thanks.

He just adjusted it, thanks.

I'm good from the blues, no need to adjust just for me.  I played the course almost exactly 1 year ago and shot a 53/52, 6 over per my HC at the time.   Hopefully I can improve on that this time!

Looks good guys!  

 

Thanks for organizing all this and appreciate getting the higher handicaps on the appropriate tee box.  This will definitely help... And make it more enjoyable for the group.

 

One last note about Telega.  Their range setup is kind of goofy.  Golfingdad, can you give all the guys here tips on what they should expect to do early AM to get to the range?  I don't believe you can park your car at the range?  I know they have some sort of cart that drives you to the range, but I've never used the range at this course.  I typically go and just practice putting near the clubhouse practice green, then go with whatever I have on the first tee given the range is whacked.  But maybe Golfingdad can give us tips on what we should do to get some practice swings in before we tee off??

post #263 of 432

Those not in group "A" are in trouble now, I will have my new headcovers in time which will drop my HC at least 3-5 points right?

Correct, the range isn't open (for cars) until 9 I believe, so you have to take the shuttle from the clubhouse. I think it's a 5 min ride so I'd say just budget 10-15 more than you normally would for a course with a "normal" range.

And pretty sure you'll have to buy the balls at the clubhouse too ... Don't think the range attendant will be down there yet either.
