We went to Bandon in June and it did not disappoint, awesome trip!! We have another 50th birthday party trip planned for next year and as nice as Bandon was, we are looking for something different. A guy in Bandon mentioned Streamsong. Has anyone been there? Other suggestions?

Thanks

The only golf related item on my bucket list is to return to Louisville, Kentucky, where I grew up, and play a few of the courses I grew up on.

I do want to go to the Golf Hall of Fame and I suppose I'd like to play there, but it doesn't hold as much importance in my mind.

Playing famous courses across this country holds no interest of real consequence for me.

That is a good goal to have... returning to the land where you first played the game.  I have thought about returning to St. Louis to play some of the courses I played as a teen.  Back then I was short and straight... 115 pounds, 5' 10".  Now I hit that spheroid a long distance but sometimes a little crooked.  I bet I can remember my driving distance on every hole... thinking I might be 50 yards past those spots today.  But then again, it's St. Louis... nobody goes back once they've left...

I don't know about that... I have friends in Kirkwood who lived elsewhere and near retirement, moved back. Personally, I love St. Louis. The Sheldon Concert Hall is one of the most perfect acoustic rooms in the country and I've seen some incredible artists there. A friend runs Jazz On The Bistro down the block... Other than the cold weather, it's one of my favorite places to visit friends.

And then there's the art museum and Art Hill... perfect for sledding in the winter.  And, on the same plot of land as the 4th hole of the old Forest Park Golf Course!

When I fled St. Louis as a young man (still am relatively) I ran off to your neck of the palm trees.  Well, Miami Beach actually.  Then Miami Springs.

I grew up near East Lake in Atlanta, I'd like to go back and legally play there. We used to go in through a hole in a fence and knock balls around with an old club a friend had. Later on I actually picked up the game. As for an actual bucket list, I think I'd just add an Open Championship, preferably St. Andrews, I have checked off the other 3 Majors and a Ryder Cup, so I got that going for me.

I played Pinehurst over the summer.  We didn’t play #2 because most of my group are 20+ handicappers and I didn’t think it would be fun for them. We played #4 and #5, Tobacco Road, Mid Pines, CCNC and The Cradle.  We had a great time, on and off the course.  I know there are other great golf areas, but I’m itching to go back, hopefully soon.  We go to Kiawah every year.  It’s also a great golfing trip as well, but I’ve been there  over a dozen times.

@Aaron from Baltimore my good friend played all the courses at streamsong and thought they were all great. He didn’t care too much for the greens at the black but I just told him he can’t putt worth a dang that’s why;) 

Pinehurst are would be a great choice for a lot of good golf in one area.

    • For me, I play anywhere from 5900-6400 given the choice. Average decent contact drive is somewhere between 230-250 now (which I am really happy about), but I still have a decent amount of "power fades" and cold tops/sky balls. We do have a course locally which is something of an executive course. I actually still enjoy it from the middle tees at 5100 yards, as opposed to the back tees at 5400. This is still a par 71 course. It still feels like I should be playing from the middle tees, even if my scores are absurdly better than they should be, with my best being a +5 (+5 front even back), but the holes still feel right for where each set of tees are. For me, as long as I'm not playing for something special (tournament or local money game where certain tees are mandated), I play as short as feels reasonable and fun. I don't often play "forward" (seniors', juniors', women's, whatever it may be)tees, sticking with mostly the "members" tees if I play somewhere new. If the course is exceptionally long, I may move up. Sometimes it depends on the group that I am playing with too. Had a situation last year where a guy got matched with my buddy and I, and he wanted to play the tips (7k yards or so), whereas we wanted to play 2 tees up (6400 yards). Ended up splitting the difference at 6700 yards from the second back tees. The guy we were paired with struggled very bad, and my friend and I didn't fair much better. TLDR: Don't be afraid to play "shorter" tees, and go have fun.
    • Muni is Chinese Paige Spiranac....though Muni has her LPGA card/membership....Paige is simply a Instagram golfing POSER....and whiner...just sayin. Ok...Muni is an Instagram POSER too. I hope I can attend the 2020 CP CWO here in Van City and chat up a fellow countrywoman. I didn't know who she was back in 2012...but Muni use to play out of Swaneset here in La La Land...a 36 hole facility that I play often in the summer with 2 tough tracks. He's a video of Muni as a kid at Swaneset.....Muni needs counselling...her favorite player is the The Phony Pink Diva...WTF.   Ai-Chan and Lorena are two of the most classiest and approachable LPGA pros. Both always so engaging and polite. If a fan asked Lorena for an autograph she always thanked that fan for coming out to watch. I don't like Wie...big snob....if there was a needle mover on the LPGA..... it was Wie...Wie never really like engaging with the fans...she like some other pros know when the cameras are nearby.....BJ is a MARKETING GENIUS...conning everyone that Michelle would be the 'chosen one' in woman's golf....LMAO
    • Went to Minneapolis for a bachelor party in the Summer. The group might have gone with this course but the price scared us off after currency conversion and how expensive the trip already was planned to be. We ended up playing Keller and still loved our pick.
    • These climbers are like human Spider-Man. The Invisible Man. Birdie. Loosely based on HG Wells’ story, this movie was tense, scary and layered.
