Aloha Gang,

Well in this year I have visited Maui and Vegas for golf but then things got stymied. Took the COVID test this morning and my Dr just messaged me I’m clear so on Friday I head back to Lana’i and once in Maui county I can travel freely in Maui county, so I am not sure when I’ll get back to Oahu. Anyone else had to do the test to travel or had non-stymied golf adventures?

This section needs some action.

Aloha,

iSank

Our foursome cancelled our usual 2 trips up north.   Instead I traveled to southern Utah for some hiking and mountain biking.  Can you say "congested"?

My one trip was the last week in February to Reunion, FL.  Even at that time I was a bit concerned about sitting near a person with a bad cough.  Pretty much no one, including me, wore a mask or even considered it.  After the trip the gates were closed and locked.  I never played a round more than an hour away from home.

2021 has got to be better.

I took part in the PA/NY TST outing/lesson this summer. It was a blast, and as far as I know, no one caught the rona. When I got back, I was informed that NY state had restrictions on traveling there based on what state you came from, but since I drove, it didn't come up. Luckily I wasn't pulled over for my license plate being from a restricted state.

NY state had no such restriction.

New York City may have at the time.

Nobody anywhere near CHQ was enforcing anything like that. You didn't spend an overnight, either.

Correct. I just didn't even know about any restrictions when it happened, and when I got back people told me stuff. Hadn't really looked into until now.

Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case. 

All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues. 
So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge.

Aloha,

My travels were to driving to Northern Michigan. Garland (Lewiston, MI) in July was originally planed for May but was pushed back.  Nice thing was they let us keep the “Early Bird” rate.  This was shen I got my 1st Ace 😃.

Then went to Treetops (Gaylord, MI) in September.  

Both trips involved masks & social distancing but were good, enjoyable trips. The breakfast buffets were cancelled but not a big deal.

This is the first year we have missed both Garland and Treetop in the last 5 years.   I really didn't miss Treetops except the par 3 but I do miss Garland.   

I'm glad you were able to enjoy them.

    • Hello everyone I used to be active here until my place was burglarized in Dallas TX and my entire golf gear, among other things, was stolen. Following the burglary and the pandemic I lost my motivation to play golf. Last week I moved to Vegas, and today my wonderful wife ordered a new set for my upcoming birthday. It is an all Taylormade M2 set which was on discount at Dick's; my goal is to play with that product price range until I score in the 80s again. I will only buy better clubs after I consistently hit below 80, if necessary. I am now looking for good golf courses in the Summerlin area and hope to join a community where I can find likeminded folks to play with regularly. My flexible job enables me to play in the afternoons during the week and all day on weekends. Vegas has transformed a lot. The Raiders built a stadium here, residential areas have grown and lots of master planned communities were built. Nice to be back on TST, it is the best golf community on the web! Nave
    • I have just as much fun playing by the rules, as not. Hell, probably more...
    • Nice!  Olinger can get around the table!  
    • DAY 1  December 4   Due to a pinched nerve in my mid-back, I have not been able to practice for a little more than a week.  So starting again at Day 1!!  Spent a couple of hours on the range, alternating between hitting balls with my feet together (to work on balance and rotating around my thoracic spine) and working with the Swingwyde to focus on swing plane and proper cocking and uncocking of the wrists.  Then spent about an hour on short pitches... which was a total waste of time... chunking, blading, etc.  I have now decided that I need to find a new instructor to help me with this.....  now to sleep and back to the grind in the morning.  The positive part is that I am hitting my irons and full swing wedges so much better than a couple of months ago -- my swing, contact, low point, etc all continue to improve.
