I'd like to be kept in the loop on this. That's only 3 hours from my folks house. I haven't seen them since this who COVID thing began. If the COVID thing has left us by then I'd be interested in possibly doing a grandparents visit/golf trip.
Way too early for me to commit to anything though.

Paging: @mvmac @saevel25 @GolfLug @DaveP043 @Hardspoon @georgep @DeadMan @Slim_Pivot @mchepp @kpaulhusand anyone else who may be interested. Spots are probably going to be limited to 8 people.
I have been in contact with @iacas about the possibility of hosting a 2021 TST outing next July and I'd like to make it an amazing experience for those who attend.
If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know here.
Major point of consideration: Sand Valley is WALKING ONLY, no carts. Also, we will likely want to play from around 6700+ yards or so.
It likely would be at our family lake house which is about 1 hour and 20 minutes from the course. Lodging is very pricey at Sand Valley($250/night/person) and so this is why I am considering this route to save everyone some $. See the spoiler to see the lake and house. It has 6 beds, we could make arrangements for up to 8 though with some modifications. Ideally it would be great to get 8 people committed to coming to this.
I am thinking 3-4 days of golf, depending on what everyone would like to do.
Sand Valley and Mammoth Dunes Greens Fees: $225 each
The Sandbox(17 hole par 3 course) Green Fees: $65
Sand Valley Golf Resort: A Top 100 Golf destination golf resort in central Wisconsin with the first course by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw opened in 2017 and the second course by David Kidd opened in 2018. Sand Valley...
Nearby Course Options:
Sentry World: $155 (Not cheap but it worth checking out the flyover videos, it is fairly unique) Might be an interesting option, might be too much $, I have not played there.
Lake Arrowhead: $55 (very close to Sand Valley)
We may be looking at some other/better options as well. I am just putting a couple out there for now.
