Yup... looks that way...

 

We just gotta figure out the course. Top choices right now appear to be Red Hawk in Temecula and Black Gold in Yorba Linda.

I can make it if it's in Temecula. Won't be able to do Yorba Linda.

How is Black Gold? I think I played it New Year's Day... 2008 maybe? My main memory was the greens sounding like a tennis court when a ball hit them on the fly. That could have been my imagination. I think it's the first place I ever holed out from a bunker, albeit for a double bogey.

I'm going to try to make it -- I just put it on my calendar, and May 4 is quite convenient for me.

Haven't played it, which is part of the reason I'm hoping to go there.....

I'm up for Yorba Linda. Less committing distance-wise, and it does look very nice.

 

@jefkve want to play it before the outing, once?

post #42 of 160

I would vote for Black Gold as well.  (I also have never played there)

Do you want to go with me, Kaili and @jefkve for a mini-outing to scout things out for everyone?

Sure!

 

All I've heard about that place so far is that it can be challenging, expecially in the afternoon when its windy.

Great, it would be fun. We should plan a time. PM me and @jefkve and anyone else interested?

It's a good idea to play Black Gold at least once before you strap it up in a tournament. The course isn't too long, but it's challenging track with LOTS of approaches to elevated greens. As for the greens themselves, you're going to have a few putts or chips that do the exact opposite of what you think they will. Playing it once is worth at least 3-4 strokes your next time out.

Justin and I are, he is playing it with his school two or three times but I am sure he would want to go.

Whenever you like. It's your birthday.

 

Check if they have a free round or discounted one on your birthday.

Your Dirthday???

 

Or should we be worried that you are getting ready to mount a full scale invasion (hopefully to free Orange County from the tyranny of high greens fees)??:-P

 

PS.  @Lihu and @hacker101 you guys should probably plan just a 4some ... it's going to be tough for me, now that I think about it.  This weekend I'm playing Saturday and Monday.  The 16th I have a tournament, the 22nd I'm already committed to golf, and after that I'm booked for a couple of weeks for kids birthdays.  I like to sneak out of work in the afternoon sometimes during the week ... but Yorba is too far for that.  I think I'll just have to make 5/4 my first trip out there and rely on Google Maps and Aimpoint. :)
