Here are approach shots  for Erik, Bill, John, and Jonny on Hole #18 John,   Bill, Jonny,  Erik,     

Let's not do this, please. You've clearly never seen @saevel25 on the first tee, after all. 😉 We all know "golf" and we all know that some of us will hit some good shots, all of us will hit some

Here's my first (final?) stab at groupings: Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:00: @iacas @Slim_Pivot @Divot Master Saturday @ Bedford Springs, 11:10: @Hardspoon

Funny to see this place on here...

I lived in Richmond for almost 10yrs up to 2014 and played this course quite a bit until I moved to NY as it was my regular playing partner's favourite area course. Has some nice interesting holes and I certainly wouldn't classify it as hard. For a woodland course it does incorporate some links-esque feeling on some holes rather well!

Within a few miles of Royal New Kent there are several other courses of similar style; Brickshire and Viniterra being the closest.

The local CBS TV station in Richmond had a screaming deal each year where for $150 you got to play six local courses (including a cart!) and these three were always included. The first year I did it the River Course at Kingsmill (that was an LPGA tour course and former PGA tour course) was included and that would have been $180 on its own!

I still travel to Richmond regularly for work and see someone else here is a local but if anyone wants any pointers just shout.

Unfortunately I'm already travelling elsewhere in the country, otherwise I'd be sorely tempted. 

RNK is a skip from RIC airport...

My son and I are interested.  I gotta check with the significant other.  Also, my son just had his appendix removed, so he'll be rusty and sore.  But it ought to be fun, and I've heard great things about the course.

Two weeks is plenty of time to heal up. We'd be happy to have you!

Possible for me to bring a non-TST buddy? Not sure how that will affect numbers

Not positive he can make it, but wanted to get a feel from the group first

I think that’s fine as week-of additions. Put him on the waiting list if he’s able to come. Ideally it’s TST people.

Or get him to register and make a few posts. 🙂

    • Shot a 110.  6 penalty strokes, 2 with the driver.  Just bad with irons today.  Pretty much feast or famine, but much more famine.
    • Yep, that's the pain you signed up for when you became a golfer...
    • Matched my best round of the year this morning and also at the same time could not be more frustrated with my driver swing and realize I don know $*!# about the golf swing. Other than that all is well.  🤣
    • Day 160.  Played golf today, shooting an 83 at a course I've played twice before.  I felt I didn't have control of my driver for about half the day (and GG shows:  I hit 50% fairways and missed right 50% of the time).  I think if I had missed the 18th green with a near-GIR in the grass instead of in the sand (where I proceeded to hit it too far over -- these greens aren't very big) and then short-sided myself, left it short... 😞  Double bogey on hole 1, triple on hole 18, bogey-or-par on 2-17 inclusive.   Also, I had poor directional control on some iron shots, so I'm not sure what's up with that. And I hit a putt on #10 fat after a GIR, leading to a bogey.  That was unfortunate.  Despite feeling like I played some of those poorly, GG tells me I had full swing strokes gained under the 10 handicap mark and putting under the 15 handicap mark.
    • Day 38 (03 Aug 21) - Jumped outside around mid-day just before the afternoon rain was to start to work on the left hand in the grip.  Been way too weak with the left hand of late, seeing too many pushes right.  Worked with the PW, making sure I had a stronger grip in hand before 1/2 swings with the ball.  Know it is not what I have been doing as it was somewhat foreign feeling.    Next step - once it stops raining (forecast has that early next week)  is to take it the range and work more there where I can work on full swings.
