SW Ohio (Dayton) Golf Outing 2019

Recommended Posts

I am putting together a golf outing in the Dayton, OH area On Aug. 31st. I am thinking early afternoon to allow for some drive time. We all know that winter is just around the corner, so lets get together and play some golf while we still can. I am thinking of Madden Golf Course or Community Golf Course. Here are the rates. Add $14 for a cart.

Welp, crap, I'll be down in Gatlinburg for my sister's wedding that weekend. Hope you get a good turnout, I miss these outings.

The date isn't firm. I have a drumming gig no the 24th in the evening, but that is a possibility.

As long as its the weekend, I ought to be able to make it. My vote is very definitely for Madden. Too many places for me to lose balls on the Hills. Unless Dales is actually a consideration.

Incidentally, those prices look terrible. Think I'll stick with my own.

Also tagging @Slice of Life, @georgep, @saevel25 if you are interested in making a little drive. Perhaps we could get @dennyjones to come down from the state up north.

Funny. You seem to be able to lose them on a wide open hole with no trees. 😝

Sure. It's a frigging laugh riot.

There's enough trees along the right side of the Hills, I'd be losing four sleeves instead of just two.

Only if I can get the wife to approve.   My daughter just moved to Cincinnati from Princeton.   I may be able to convince her to see the kids while I golf but it would be next to impossible.

I wouldn't be able to do the 31st, but I'm pretty sure I could do the following Saturday, Sept. 7th.

Don't change the date just for me though.

That would work for me as well.

That's 2 people that can't make the 31st, so 9/7 is looking a little more promising, so let's just plan on making it 9/7.

I have a possibly broken rib (from golfing too much, rory style), and will update when the date gets closer if I cannot make it due to the injury.

Common. Suck it up. I've been playing brain damaged all year apparently.

Seriously though. Best of luck with that.

Ouch, my father has been struggling with rib issues for over a year and wasn't able to golf at all this year because of it. I hope you recover quickly. Definitely don't push it.

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
