TST Mid-Atlantic Outing

post #1 of 119
Thread Starter 

Why do the guys in SoCal, with their 80* Februaries get all the fun? I know we've got some members from the Mid-Atlantic region, how about an April (or late March) outing?  The snow should melt by then, right?

 

How about it @inthehole @bjwestner @hack1981 @River Hill @Seahawk @CallawayJ @Mr3Wiggle @jsgolfer @RH31 @kregan @terp2007 @cliffj @davedove ?  

 

 

I think there are a bunch of members in the DC Metro Area.  Maybe someplace like Lake Presidential, Raspberry Falls, or something closer to PA folk, such as Glen Mills, Gettysburg?  We'll have to see who is interested and where everybody is before we pick a location.

I'll likely have to take a trip or two to Delaware before early June, so I'll keep this thread in mind. If it's close enough I might be able to make it.

Depends where and when, but I am always up to play.

Where in MD are you?

Count me in. I play mostly the VA muni courses west of DC, but I'd be up for something more adventurous.

Based on the early responses, perhaps some of these courses would be most convenient:1757 (Dulles); Westfields (Clifton/Centerville); Raspberry Falls (Leesburg)

 

 

Some other possibilities:

North: Bulle Rock (Harve de Grace); Maryland National (Middleton); Whiskey Creek (Ijamsville); P.B. Dye (Ijamsville); Blue Mash (Olney); Glen Mills (PA/DE border, near Wilmington);

East: Lake Presidential (Upper Marlboro)

South:  ?? I don't really know that area

 

 

This is just based on the responses thus far.  If anyone is interested in playing but finds these courses inconvenient, don't shy away.  

 

 

Some possible dates:

 

April 5-6

April 12-13

April 26-27

May 10-11

May 17-18

Little Bennett in Clarksburg, MD is a favorite of mine much better than PB Dye.  

 

Whiskey Creek is really good as well.  Worthington Manor is the same exit as Whiskey Creek, and just as good,  just the opposite direction and is actually closer to 270.

 

Glen Mills (PA/DE border, near Wilmington); and Bulle Rock are probably a little out of my travel distance to play.

 

Timbers at Troy in Elkridge MD is pretty good too.  Waverly Woods in Ellicott City, MD used to be nice, haven't played there in 10 years.

 

Laurel Hill, Lorton, VA is really nice, they just held the 2013 Public Links Championship there

I like Little Bennett as well.  I've heard great things about Worthington Mannor and Laurel Hill and would love to try them both.

April12-19 is our county school spring break, so those weekends don't work for me. All others work at this point.

I'm game for any of them. I've only heard of Laurel Hill, because it's maintained by the Fairfax County Park Authority, who maintains the Twin Lakes complex where I often play. People at Twin Lakes often speak with high regard of the course. Here's their link: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/golf/lhgc/

Okay...I'll keep my eye on this one because I am from that area. I am thinking DC metro as well, or within an hour (Tee Hee, like you get anywhere around there in an hour)  God knows I can use a break from Ohio! Last course I played around there was Bull Run GC, Haymarket, VA, which is a sister course to Raspberry falls in Leesburg, VA.

Bull Run is nice. Old Hickory down in Woodbridge is nice too, and it's also a sister course to Raspberry and Bull Run. Lake Presdential is also on the Raspberry trail.

If it's on a weekend, I'd consider driving down from Albany NY to play. My really good friend lives in northern VA so might be able to stay with him and see if he wanted to play.

You might also want to check out the New England one. It depends on where we play, but it'll probably be much closer.

I think it's a "group" thread. All you have to do is join the group then you can post in there. :)
