TST New England Spring/Summer 2014 Outing - Page 4

post #55 of 148
Thread Starter 
So, courses that have been mentioned so far:

Cyprian Keyes - Slightly farther north, a bit tougher if you've never played there before.
Highfields - Can't think of many downsides. Close to a Mass Pike exit, has a solid driving range. Gets a bit windy is a downside I guess?
Shining Rock - No driving range.
Blackstone National - A bit tougher to get to. (I've never played there. a2_wink.gif)
New England CC - Also tougher to set to. Also never played there. Pricy on weekends.
Crumpin Fox - Very expensive, way out of the way.

Any other options?

I'm up in CT now for the foreseeable future, I'll be interested in playing for sure.

Is Springfield considered central Massachusetts?

Not really, though if that works for more people I suppose we could play somewhere out there.

You're right, it looks like central Mass would be between Springfield and Worcester.

My vote is for somewhere that isn't pricey. :)

Of more immediate importance to me, do we have an idea of a date yet?

Haha, I love talking smack, just wish I had the game to back it up!

Although it's not surprising that I'm somewhat in a budget and don't want to pay $70 or $100 for a round.

To be fair, I first started talking smack about your wife before I met you...via text. :dance:

I really liked Blackstone when I played there a few years ago.  Costs $75 for prime time.   I also played Highfields and agree that its a great value.    

 

I'm not sure if I could make it, just offering what I know about the courses.  .

Interesting.... an hour and a half to Springfield.. two hours to Worcester. That sounds like a possibility for me depending on the date.

We should probably start discussing dates. Most of the SoCal events have been on Saturday, so that's probably our best option as well.

Would May work? That would be late enough that weather and course condition shouldn't be an issue, and early enough that we could fit in another outing later in the summer without them being too bunched.

Courses too. Would Highfields be our best option? It's got a driving range and a spacious putting green, prices are solid, plus it's decently accessible from two different Mass Pike exits.

You're definitely welcome to come.

Work gets hectic again in June and July for me so, selfishly, I vote for May, haha.

May would be tough for me, I have two other golf outings going on that month, but please don't let that affect your consensus decision.

Does that mean that @RFKFREAK will need another boat to barnacle himself to? b2_tongue.gif
