Anyone play here? Apparently this is the course Tiger grew up playing.
I'm confused, though. Cruisers are bigger ships than destroyers, yet the big course is the Destroyer and the executive course is the Cruiser. Hmmmm . . .
I play here almost every weekend. Its about 2 blocks from my house. Really a good challenge. Pretty well kept. Very fair rates. There is a lot of wind because you are right next to a runway. So some holes can play pretty difficult. Seems like wind is always in your face. Water plays on most of the holes. A decent amount of trees. Any more questions you can message me.
The cruiser is actually one of the toughest executives I have played. I would say about 7 easy holes but they have one par 3 that's like 230 dogleg with water on the right. Its ridiculious. But I think Destroyer just sounds more intimidating and can destroy you. Cruiser is fairly easy besides 3 and 4.
Just an update on the actual outing (since that's what this thread is suppose to be about)...
I'm off on Tuesday and Wednesday so I will be calling the course and letting them know how many we have and giving the deposit. If you will be joining us and haven't yet said so PLEASE do so soon.
There have been a lot of posts recently, so here are the details once again so you guys don't have to dig through the thread looking for them.
Date: Sunday, October 13th
Location: Oak Quarry, Riverside, CA
Time: 8 AM
Everybody will be able to pay at the course so no worries there. Once we are closer to the date (a week or so out) we'll worry about teams and format, although I'm thinking that the modified stableford we played the last few times is good.
Ask and you shall receive; here is the current list of who has "officially" confirmed that they will be there:
1. tristanhilton85 (+1)
4. BeachComber (+1)
6. Lihu (+1)
7. k-troop (+1)
9. Hacker101 (+2)
With the +1s, that puts us at 16 players, also in the thread we've heard from jimdangles, carrx, and golfswine, but they haven't actually confirmed. If you guys are going please let us know. Beach also said that he might be +4 and Lihu may have another +1 as well. With those three members and the additional +1s, we'd be at 23. If there are any other +1s please let us know soon.
The only member that made it last time that we haven't heard from yet is mdl. I'll send out some PMs in a bit and see if anybody else is going.
Modified stableford sounds good to me. I'm a 12.5 as of the most current revision (this morning). I guess it doesn't matter so much right now since we will have another revision a full 13 days before the event, but you gotta put something on the prospective roster, right?
Not quite worried about getting the handicaps yet, as you said we'll all have another full revision before we play. However, if any of the guys don't have a handicap, please start trying to figure out what it should be. Take note of your last handful of scores and where you played and plug it into one of the online calculators or something so we have an accurate number for you.
After the first I'll start getting the handicap info for everybody and making the groupings.
Don't get your hopes up too high. Playing Shore Cliffs Sunday afternoon. With either be awesome or awful. We shall see....
Getting excited here! You guys realize it's only 3 weeks from this coming Sunday?!?!?!?
Jeff, I want to hear your thoughts on Shorecliffs after you play it. It is right around the corner from my office, and I use their range sometimes in lieu of Talega because they have a small section of grass, but I haven't actually played that course in 15 years. I remember it being pretty cruddy, but that was a long time ago.
Says the guy who shot a net 62 (I am going off of memory here) in our last outing!
Have a blast guys, sorry I can't join you on this one. FYI to anyone who is interested, though. Tukwet Canyon - the course in Beaumont where we held the April outing - is offering a "groupon" type deal that seems pretty good. $37 for unlimited golf for a day. The only catch is that you have to use it M-F. Technically you can use it on the weekends, but they restrict from teeing off before 11am. I'm going to buy it and try to get in 36 before daylight savings. If anyone is interested, PM me and I'll send you the link.
