Fill it in and be done with it. Bring some soil from Sand Valley for the last scoop you use to fill in that hole.

Sounds like you’re throwing good money after bad.

That is a SERIOUS consideration. If it wasn't for Emma, that would be the plan for sure. It's not completely off the table yet. I could build me a sim room in that spot...haha.

I know, I know. This pool is going to cost me about 18k to repair though.

Oohh, my sympathies. That's a gut punch. See you in another outing. I am sure there will be more.

I think 12 is a good number, so while I have spaces out to 16, I think internally both Nate and I are liking 12. Or 8, but 12 is better, IMO, and I hope we can stay at 12 or so.

Just to confirm, I'm still in.  I'll miss seeing @mvmac and meeting @TN94z , but occasionally real life (or better offers) get in the way.

Sorry to say that I'm out for Sand Valley. Just got invited to an am event at Bend Golf Club.

Thanks for trying to make it happen Mike.  Hope you have a great time at the tournament!

I am going to have to bow out as well. The estimates I am getting to repair my pool aren't looking good and I will need every dime I can gather. Replacing all of the concrete is not going to be cheap....sorry guys. 

Sorry to hear it, that is a tough break.

Not ready to be added to any list yet, but I did just catch up on the thread and my interest is piqued.  @cipher, just curious, is it at all feasible to do the 5th day if you're flying through Minneapolis?  Cursory glance gives me nonstop options through MN but more expensive and longer trip options to MIL.  But if they are in complete opposite directions, then maybe that just won't work.

The courses all look amazing too.

That would be tough but not impossible.  Might requite flying out on the 6th day.  From Lawsonia Links it would be a 4 hour drive back to MSP airport.

Waiting on my pool quote to come in this week, but I foresee it killing my golf trip budget.

Me too, my wife and I are in the process of looking for/making offers for a new house so we are keeping as much cash free as we can right now. Plus I started a new job back in Jan which has 5 less vacation days than my previous role.

:-D:-D:-D It's not about the smell I promise! Our original plan was to start looking for a house late summer/early fall so I thought I would have been fine for the trip but then the new job came with a pretty good salary increase so we were able to start looking for a house earlier in the year plus the loss of 5 PTO days didn't help my case either.

Increased salary and scaling back on golf doesn’t make sense. 🙂

Completely counter-intuitive.   

But this leads me to ask, are the dates definitive enough that I should really start thinking about booking flights?

Most (maybe all?) airlines are still allowing free changes and refunds. So it might not be a bad idea to jump on a cheap flight if you see one.

Yes, if you are able to find cheap flights you could do so at this time.

    • I could be wrong, but I’d put money on you needing to address the wedges as well.
    • More than a few, lol. Score at the end of my round, pre-editing, was 64, and after editing it was 82. Plus there were also a bunch of tee shots that were automatically added, so I'm guessing I missed between 25-30 tags total. I'm sure I'll get used to it though once I am unaccustomed to the automatic tagging watch. I'm also so used to the watch that I kept checking my wrist out of habit. I like the device a lot. My only minor complaints are: I didn't like taking it on/off the clip on my belt to use as a distance measuring device (at least in winter when my layers cover my belt, so I am going to see about attaching the clip to my bag or push cart somehow. The vibration is subtle, but once I got a sense of the frequency/duration of it I could tell when the tag was successful. It is small, but I only fumbled and dropped it once.

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
