Royal New Kent - VA Mini-Event - Nov 1st

Planning a round on Sunday 11/1 at Royal New Kent in Providence Forge, VA  (100 miles south of Wash DC) with @iacas. If there is interest I can book couple of tee times for mid morning. 

More to come in the next few days based on interest. Paging all DC/Richmond/Virginia Beach area golfers! @iacas may add more details. Other areas welcome too.

To all who have never played, this is a treat if you like Tobacco Road. It is much more wind swept and linksy though.

It's a 6-hour drive for me...so I'd want to get a round in on Saturday somewhere as well (even if it's on the way...near DC or whatever).

But I'm in.

I'm interested, and so is Mary Anne.  Assuming, as she says, that its not "just a guys trip."  For the guys coming from the north, I'm sure I could arrange Saturday golf at Stoneleigh, and then maybe drive down towards Richmond afterwards.

For planning purposes, any idea on a ballpark tee time? 8am vs noon? 
 

...and that course looks hard

9:30am-ish. Can't say it's easy and I am not playing all that great, but this course is great fun to get around .:-)

I’m not saying “no” as I’ve never played with you guys and would be excited to finally meet someone of you, but if I were to play that Sunday, I will have played 4 out of the 5 weekends in a row...it wouldn’t bode well for my marriage 🤔  

let me see what we have going on

A.  You can definitely handle it, Stranz courses tend to be a whole lot easier than they look

2.  Playing with V is a pretty amazing experience, not to mention playing with Erik.

If your marriage can survive you publicly humiliating your wife by going on a walk while holding a golf club to work on your grip and then posting it on the internet, it can survive one round of golf.

Just a soft suggestion: Skip next two weekends from golf. Lol

Bring her if she would accompany you. The place is not boring at all! Last time I played Tobacco (very similar) my wife rode with me. We still talk about it sometimes. She is not much of a golfer.

I've played with you and will 2nd that. I've been with ALL of you that are planning in the cart at some point in the last 5 years. Let's just say I couldn't be more glad I get to see all of you again.

A few lost balls is a small price to pay.. :-)

@Hardspoon and @saevel25, 11:10 on Saturday. $69.

Opening for one more as of right now. I'll be asking some local people and may not be able to update this immediately, but also most local people won't want to drive down that far, either.

I’m in for Sunday at Royal New Kent; while I’m only a 7-8, I’m usually the best guy playing amongst my buddies who use golf as more of a reason to drink than anything else, so I’m admittedly a nervous playing with the likes of you guys. First tee may be ugly - I gotta start hitting more balls :-)

    • The only thing really open for debate is how to spell deny-ers. 😷  
    • Found this topic while looking for a different one, but lawncare is one of my other primary hobbies besides golf. Here are a couple shots of mine from this past season. Just did the last mow of the year last weekend. Back in May after a double cut   And in September - can see my hot peppers growing back in the garden too. I grew 8 plants this year and easily got a couple hundred peppers
    • My family came from Detroit, and even though I grew up in northern Virginia, we'd visit Detroit every summer.  My grandfather lived really close to Chandler Park, but on occasion we drove "all the way out there" to Plumbrook.  I was really just starting the game in high school, so my memories of it are pretty hazy, but it was a real treat at that time.
    • My husband and I learned golf together and we both love it. We play together every weekend during April-November. For the winter months, we ski every weekend together. There’s no time for anything else. Vacations we take are almost all golf/ski related.  My husband has a very demanding job so he only has time on weekends. But I golf/ski during the week on my own/with friends. There were a few times he couldn’t play or ski due to injuries but he’d still ride the rounds with me or take me to the mountain and wait at the lodge.  I don’t watch sports on tv with him because I usually have other things to do in the house.  We have been together for 25 years, married for 17 and we haven’t gotten tired of each other yet. 
    • When I met my wife, she quickly learned of my devotion to the game. For first couple years, she wanted it to be my thing. Recently, she has taken an interest in wanting to try it. Either way is good by me. Would be fun as a family with our kid to go golf. But, either way, I’ll have my time with the game.
