Hey fellow So. Cal. and Nor Cal. (Notably @bplewis24) Sand Trappers,

 

My son and I had a real fun time at the Winter Outing, and are certainly up for and advocate for the next outing.

 

We had 20 people on the Winter outing, including some new faces. We need to plan for the Spring, which is coming really fast.

 

Come on, we have so many So. Cal. TST members, there's no reason why the outings can't be at least double the last one.

 

@Golfingdad's dream about the "TST Invitational" should be a real possibility.

 

A suggested location is Black Gold in Yorba Linda.

 

Who's up for it?

post #2 of 162

I'm up for it, provided the timing works. Been wanting to play Black Gold, so that would be cool by me (not to mention the fact that its 24 minutes form my house, per the googles).

 

Wherever we play, we should probably try to get the round in in May, before the weather warms up too much, especially if we play somewhere inland.

post #3 of 162

I'd like to play... Just need to checkout the calendar once a date is set.  Perhaps late April or early May?  Black Gold sounds good to me...

post #4 of 162

OK, so far we've had a suggestion for April (from @mdl ) and I'm totally cool with that.

 

As it's gone in the past, I think the first thing we need to try and do is lock down a date, then we can start kicking around courses.

 

Sundays in April are:

 

6th

13th

20th

27th

 

And May:

 

4th

11th

Probably want to avoid Masters Sunday. That's when we have the chats… and, y'know, The Masters is on. a2_wink.gif

It was great to see the pics from last weekend, and I'm sorry I missed it.

 

Selfishly, I'm going to propose May as the preferred month for me. My wife's due date is March 28th, so I doubt that I will be golfing at all in April. I believe that May would also accommodate mdl's timeframe?

OK, then let's narrow it down a bit to:

 

April 27th (its practically May, Colin :-P)

May 4th

May 11th   (This is Mother's Day - probably not a good idea)

May 18th

I'm gonna vote for May 4th....Should be able to get my Cinco de Mayo on early :banana:

post #9 of 162

May 4th sounds good for me...  I'm not aware of any conflicts.

I second May 4th, my son will be 6 months old so I should be able to get a hall pass.

Black Gold is a great course, and fairly long at 6,700 / 133 from the tips.

May 4th works at this time for us.

Also just to put this out there what about going a little south or west?

Seems everything is east, sunny CA by the beach sounds fun. For us we seem to be in the middle no matter what course is picked so no big deal.

Mike seems to always have a long drive?

Sorry I have not played that way so I don't have any course to offer.

I was thinking we'd save the beach side rounds for the summer (I know I won't be headed to the I.E. come July). Desert makes sense in the winter, and spring and fall should be fine wherever....

Just chiming in here so I can follow the thread; I'm in Augusta March 10 thru June 30, but I'd love to make it otherwise.

April is a hard one for me with Coachella Fest being in my area and work being super busy, so those two weekends would be out for me.  The following weekend is the Stagecoach Festival and is just as busy, so that eliminates me from all but the first weekend in April.

 

It seems like the first weekend in May works for everybody so far, and it works for me as well. I say May 4th; unless we want to do a Saturday this time... that would be fine by me as well.

May 4th works for me

post #16 of 162

OK, so we have 6 yes votes for May 4th, and zero no votes.

 

I say we lock it down then!!  @tristanhilton85 or @mvmac , do you guys want to add that to the thread title?

Done.

 

Now we need to figure out course. A few have mentioned Black Gold in Yorba Linda. That looks like a good one to me, although me and Mike will both have a bit of a drive; it seems like it is pretty close for most everybody else.

 

Any other suggestions?

I know @mdl mentioned some Temecula courses in the other thread.

 

Just to be clear: I'm 100% for Black Gold!
