Edit: 0715 tee time made at Mile Square (classic course). We've got two players if you want to join.
Thanks for the offer! Sadly, I have to work tomorrow at 8-ish so I will not be able to make it. Good luck!

I'm +1 for now... May have +4.  Still ironing out the details with some peeps.

 

The +1 is Mike who played in the Mile Square and Talega outings.  The other three are guys I''m still waiting for confirmation....

Yes. Looks like they have some 2-person openings early this Sunday.

I wish ... but no-can-do this weekend.  Parents are in town and I'm golfing with my dad and FIL tomorrow afternoon - you know, in the middle of this "perfect" weather we're having right now.

:scared:

0708; 0732; 0740.  Cost looks like $85 +/- a few.

 

I think I'm going to play (though it will be about a 1:45 drive for me).

Hey K-troop,

I had plans made for me tomorrow morning, but I can make Monday same time.

Possible?
post #194 of 379
No I'm working Monday, but thanks. I actually booked a solo slot about 2 hours ago because the slots were filling up and green fee went up $10 from yesterday.

I rarely play a course well the first time out so I really want to get a round in here before the October outing.

Cool. Next time then. Look forward to it.

Howdy folks, k-troop just told me about this group and I just joined.  I am located in Apple Valley, which is in the High Desert (Mojave Desert) near Victorville and Hesperia.  For the last couple of years my primary home course has been Apple Valley Golf Course.  It was formerly a private club, Apple Valley Country Club, but was bought out by the city.  It is a nice course and in the best shape of the courses in the area that are open to the public.  

 

Which is too bad because another course in the area is Hesperia Golf Course which is a really exceptional layout but in somewhat of a state of disrepair.  In the early 60s there was a PGA event held there for a number of years and there are pictures all over the place of guys like Palmer, Player, Nicklaus, Snead, et al.  Until a few years ago the course record was held by Gene Littler.  I played it a couple of weeks ago and the condition is improving but they still need to do some work.  Unfortunately when the city of Hesperia bought the course they decided not to get a golf management company but instead are having the Parks and Rec Department do the maintenance.  And they don't get the difference between a golf course and a soccer field.

But since AVGC is in such better shape I do most of my playing there.  It is a nice course which measures 6805 from the tips (72.0/125).  I generally play the blue tees which measure 6477 (70.5/121).  Both play to a par of 71.  Prices are pretty reasonable.  Top price is $45 on weekends before noon.  But if you are 60 or above it is only $30.  That includes cart, although they do allow and even encourage walking.  The cart is $14, so walking the top rate is $31 before noon on weekends, but only $16 for seniors age 60 and over.  I usually play in the late morning when the rush is over and pace of play is beyond excellent - for example I played 18 this morning as a single in just under 3 hours.  A typical time for a 4-some would be 3:45 to 4;00.  

 

If anyone is interested in coming up for a weekend outing I'd be happy to host it and provide a post round barbecue (or other food - I love to cook) at my house, which is only about 19 minutes away from the course.

 

But the real reason I wanted to post is because on September 22, 2 weeks from today, at 9:00 AM they are having a free short game clinic by Dave Stockton.  Dave is from the Inland Empire and I think we all know what his qualifications are - former PGA Champion and short game guru.  The city just changed golf management companies and the new company arranged this to get the course some exposure.

 

The web site for the course is http://www.avcc.com .

 

If anyone wants to come for the clinic we could get a tee time (or more than one if there are more takers) for afterwards and play a round.  If anyone is interested just respond to this or send me a pm.

 

Anyway, I hope that at some point I will be able to play in some of the other outings that folks in this group organize.

You guys are some lucky bastards.

Hey Turtleback,

I might need to take you up on the golf/ BBQ invitation. I think most of us would chip in for food and drinks.

Are you going to the fall outing?
