20 ouncers don't come in cases. Ha ha ha. And trust me, I should have plenty. 😉

Also, I'm inquiring about the water policy. My assumption is that we'll buy it. But maybe they have bottles available in coolers or something.

@cipher, on a separate note if you could DM the charges at convenience, then we can get it taken care of.

Thanks guys, crazy day for me here with everything going on. I called at exactly 8am(I also initially tried at 7:30😂)and requested the tee times. I was super happy that we were able to get times where we are all back to back. I was really worried about that. Ideally @iacas and I wanted to play the sandbox in the afternoons but the resort guests had all those times book. In the end I am glad I called as quickly as I did and also was able to get the times we did. We would have also liked to play SV on day one but overall it is pretty solid and could have been much worse. I am sorry for the first day as it might be a bit early for some but there wasn't anything really better for times available and SV was pretty much booked up already.

Sandbox in the mornings is fine by me.

Thanks again for arranging everything.

You are all very welcome, this is a dream trip for me to plan. I am glad we have two groups because three would have been a real mess trying to get tee times.  haha

The longest hole on the Sandbox is 145.  I'll probably just bring a few wedges and my putter.  That will be nice for a light and easy going round on that course which is I think 17 holes.  The customer service agent today told me it takes around an hour and a half to play it.

Great finds @iacas. That breakdown of Mammoth and also the one for Lawsonia Links make those courses look amazing. Can't wait!

    • 1) I am 100% for vaccine, so tone down the barking a bit here. I am trying to push as many people, POLITELY, to get the vaccine. Because, when has barking at the, or calling people idiots ever gotten them to do what you want them to do.  2) How much more does the vaccine help someone who has had COVID resist getting COVD? If he tests positive, should he get the vaccine if he has sufficient antibodies to resist it from getting COVID? Should we demonize him for it if he is sufficiently protected because he had it.  How many are those who previously had COVID? Just asking questions to get information not to combat you on getting the vaccine or not.  Don't take my questioning as denouncing getting the vaccine. I am not an expert, and any more information is good for me to pass along. I 100% agree with taking the vaccine if possible. Which is a very high % of people out there. 
    • Reading through these reviews one thing stands out.  You guys are lovers of the game, you guys are observant of the nuances of a golf course and you guys can write.  Kudos.  I think that defines your basic TST'er. I have friends that fulfill the first two items, but they can't and/or hate to write.  Too much like high school.  So they'll never come on here.  They are famous for texting only "Ok" to a longish, heartfelt text I might send their way.
    • "probably" should have? When is wife had it? "If" the vaccine "further helps him out"? The guy is clearly anti vaccine. A fool. Pardon me, but it sounds as if you are not 100% on board with the vaccine. You even said that he basically should decide whether he should get the vaccine only if he had tested positive! Why can't these people understand that you get the vaccine to save others, not just yourself. Symptoms or no symptoms. You get the vaccine. Unless you are a selfish dick who doesn't give a sh*t about anyone else. UNLESS your doctor specifically tells you NOT to take it, lest risking your own life. Am I missing something?  The vaccine has "helped" many, many millions of people out by making sure they don't die. And don't pass it on.
    • Nope, because I have no idea if he did or did not isolate himself from public.  Let's say his wife gets COVID, he's taking care of her, and self isolates through the entire process plus a few weeks after she gets better. I rather not be snarky and nasty to a coworker when I do not know what he exactly did. All I know is, he did not get the vaccine because he was around his wife through the entirety of her bout with COVID.  Also, he was working from home, so no issue with social distancing with coworkers. We were not allowed to go into the office unless it was for specific reasons, and you had to report when you showed up, when you left, and who you ended up being around. You were required to wear masks when you were not at your desk. Again, rather not say nasty snarky comments here. You obviously do not know our work situation.  Yes, he probably should have gotten tested. Yes, if the vaccine further helps him out, then he should have gotten the vaccine when available.
