Are you trying to poach from the Mid-Atlantic, @jamo ?

I was posting from my phone last night and I couldn't see anywhere to join the group.

 

Worked now that I'm on a computer, though, thanks!

So count me in... I'm partial to a trip to Glenn Mills, but selfishly so, its about a half hour drive for me :)

It looks like we've got 5 locals so far, with 3 out of towners possibly interested.

 

 

  1. Dsc123 (Rockville MD)
  2. Jsgolfer (Fairfax, VA)
  3. Kregan (Howard Cty, MD)
  4. randallT (VA, west of DC)
  5. divotdave (Philadelphia, PA)

 

 

It looks like something in the Baltimore area would be central to everybody.  I dont know any courses in that area.  Actually, Bulle Rock is pretty much the midpoint between Phildalephia and Fairfax, but I think jsgolfer said that's too far for him.  

 

Other than that, we could go with the the Frederick, MD area, such as Whiskey Creek or Worthington Manor.  That's about 2.5 hours from Philadelphia, though.  

 

Anyone know the Baltimore area?  I went to college there but didn't play golf then.

 

 

It also looks like the only dates in April in may that haven't been nixed yet are April 5-6 and May 10-11.

I'm ok with Bulle Rock. It was ranked the no. 1 public course in the state in 2012. Plus its a fair distance between the two extremes (Philadaelphia and Fairfax). 

 

As far as dates go, I'd prefer the April option, but will suck it up for the team if everyone decides May.

FWIW, I do happen to know some folks at some decent courses along the east coast. Philly area, New Jersey… etc. Just keep that in mind y'all.

Cool.  I'd lean towards the earlier date, but either works for me.  Geographically I'm sort of in between everyone, so I'll defer to those traveling more on the location.  I have wanted to play Bulle Rock for some time.  I think its pricey and might require caddies?

Great, thanks!  It looks like we're trending further south based on the current participants, but definitely something to keep in mind.  Didn't you say you know the pro at Congressional, too? :-D

I'm all for it :dance: (for obvious reasons) 

 

Actually, I'm hoping to link up with one of the instructors on that list (John Dunigan) some time this season for lessons. I've watched a lot of his videos and he seems like a great guy.

I've read thru a number of reviews online... it seems that caddies are optional... but I'm not 100% certain of that. A number of reviewers considered it pricey and rather difficult. I'm up for the challenge, but its worth considering everyone's abilities as well... if it makes sense to spend that much money and end up with a very frustrating round. Just something to consider

The round at Bulle Rock is $130 after March 31, so that's a tad steep for me on my budget. If everyone else is up for it, I'd still attend, of course, but maybe there's something else that's nice that works for us.

 

Worthington Manor is $69. Nice photos here-->http://www.worthingtonmanor.com/aboutus/coursephotos/

 

Hard to tell what Whiskey Creek prices are, since it only shows prices and availability for 2 weeks out (not sure why they make it so hard to see In Season rates). I think greens fees at Whiskey Creek are a little less than Bulle Rock and more than Worthington Manor, but hard to tell.  Front nine photos here--> http://www.whiskeycreekgolf.com/frontnine .

I organized a tournament at Whiskey Creek in Sept 2012 that cost $79 per player.  That was a discounted rate for a group of 25, so we might not qualify for a discount, and the prices may have changed anyway.  It was a beautiful course.

Both. Worthington and Whiskey Creek are really good, as for Baltimore area courses, I used to live in Odenton MD and Greystone and Diamond Ridge are very nice, Gregstone is one of my favorite Baltimore County courses. Bulle Rock is really expensive but is th number 1 course in MD so if it worked for Evonne I. Would play.

Pilgrims Oak golf course. In Peach Bottom PA is another favorite of mine. Just over the MD line not far from the Conowingo Dam.i've also played a course in Lancaster and York PA that we nice but it has been 20 years and my memory is going.

I'm interested in playing, although, honestly, with all kids activities on the weekends the odds of me actually making it aren't too great.  I normally play the munis in Montgomery County.  Falls Road the most, along with Redgate, Northwest Park, and Needwood.

 

Of the courses mentioned, Whiskey Creek is really nice.  Little Bennett and Worthington are very good too.  I played Westfield once, but it wasn't very memorable.

 

And I've played the Gold course at Congressional :)

post #36 of 123

So in the interest of reaching a decision, I'm going to cast my vote for Bulle Rock. Its pricey, true, and difficult, true, but its a fair location. Whiskey Creek sounds great and all, but it almost doubles my commute from philadelphia.
