TST SoCal Winter Outing - Feb. 16, 2014 @ Goose Creek

post #1 of 383
Thread Starter 

Ok guys, is it time to start planning out next outing/taunting all the people in cold weather states? I know there was talk at the last outing of playing a round in early to mid January (you know, when its only in the 70s). Chime in in interested with potential locales, dates, etc. Also, let everyone out there know how nice it is playing in January =)

Wait a minute, FL, AZ, TX, LA could do the same thing.

 

The most important thing is, where?

 

I would vote for Hidden Valley in Norco, CA.

I can't make any commitment at this time.

New baby will be here. Plus I have a trip to Taiwan pending in Jan before the Chinese New Year.

The first quarter of 2014 is going to be real crazy schedule wise.

I have no idea what my available dates are yet.  We have guests in town from New York sometime in the middle of January, and I have a couple of tournaments I hope to play in January and February.  Unfortunately, I don't yet have the exact dates for any of those.

 

---------------------------------------

 

I know that most of us are from OC/LA but we still haven't made a date in San Diego yet.  I wonder if people would be interested in something in North San Diego County?  Here are a few to perhaps check out ...

 

The Vineyard ... http://www.vineyardatescondido.com/

The Crossings ... http://www.thecrossingsatcarlsbad.com/carlsbad.asp?id=182&page=3854

Rancho Bernardo Inn ... http://www.jcgolf.com/course/rancho-bernardo/

Arrowood ... http://www.arrowoodgolf.com/about/

 

And there are a jillion more. ;)  I realize that the Riverside/Corona/Norco area is probably the most central for everybody, but just thought I'd throw a few SD ideas out there too.

Mike, Can you get us discounts to Torrey Pines?

I'll even go midnight a3_biggrin.gif

You could play Mike's course. Crossings was okay.

Just looked at Drew's link. Crossings, would be nice, too.

I'm up for it, but for those of us in the LA area, we should make it later in the morning so we don't all have to book hotels. I might overnight it just for a mini family vacation.

Interesting thought.

Btw, how did you get away with adding more than 10 points to your HC, you sandbagger? b2_tongue.gif

Wife and I may be staying in SD 6-9 Feb.
post #14 of 383
Oh, and I think we should think about mixing up the format this time ... Don't want it to get stale. ;)
post #15 of 383

For me, January is a pretty good month. No vacations or work trips planned currently and unlike Beachcomber, my wife isn't due until March. I don't have my personal schedule set that far down the road, but I am guessing that most weekends and locations would work fine for me.

 

Depending on how many folks we get, I think mixing up the format is a great idea. A Ryder Cup style format (two teams) where we send out group in competing 4-ball matches would be a lot of fun, but I am game for anything.

post #16 of 383

January sounds good to me. I'd be for mixing up the format as well if for no other reason than to try something new. It might be kind of cool to try do some match play or something like that.

 

I'd be for doing it in the SD area as well. There are a lot of nice courses out there and we haven't been out that way yet. Coming out my way (Palm Springs area) could also be an option. The weather is perfect out here although it could be a little on the pricey side. If that's something you'd guys would like to look into, however, let me know and I'll call some of the courses up.

@mvmac

 

Since Erik brought it up, is this something that would be possible? What kind of cost would we be looking at?

No idea what Erik is talking about lol  I could look into it, I think my guest fees are about $70 but not sure if I could bring out four groups on the weekend, Sunday afternoon would be probably be the best time, no chance on Sat or Sun morning.  They usually schedule "outside" tournament event on Monday.
