Let's just play some golf when y'all arrive, okay? :) I don't want to talk anyone into anything. Decide, play golf, enjoy the day. :)

 

I'm just pointing out that it's not a "short" 6450 yards.

Maybe later tonight. I dunno though. Still missing one player.

You'll be fine, especially if you can carry it 235

I think I may be misunderstood from my posts and I feel the need to explain myself. Even if it was a short 6450 yards, it is PLENTY long for me! Actually very much on the high side of my comfort zone (I usually play 6200-6300 max) which is why I thought I can whale away driver at anything that longer folks (I am pretty certain there are quite a few in this group) might have to tee with a 3 wood/5 wood or even less.  All is good though. Never played in PA and very excited at the opportunity especially with TST. :-)

As long as your body isn't worn down, no such thing. ;)

I'm a little sore because I'm using different muscles lately since the swing changes but I'm sure that'll pass. I probably won't hit the course again until my league night just to recover a bit.

… I call BS. Everyone knows golf is not a sport. :-)

 

Tentative groupings will come out later today.

I just checked out the Whispering Woods website. Nice looking course. I'm hoping to make a trip to western NY next summer. I'd like to put this course on my agenda. Looks like you better keep it straight. a1_smile.gif

For course with a few (of course, not all) 400+ yard par 4s and having to hit hybrids for approach shots all day to get close to the green? Um, yeah. Anyway, glad to be appointed as the group's whipping boy. Keep them coming. :-D

Just remember, they serve cold beer in Erie too.

5 out of the 10 par 4's are over 400 yards. 3 out of the ten are 300 yards or less. So it evens out I think.

You can just play it as 3 shots to the green and try for par. I usually do, because I am not that great at getting those GiRs.
