You're in.

We might expand the list to 12, with a drawing or a pick (it's Nate's house after all) and the other four could get cheap hotels minutes away, but just use them to sleep while still visiting/hanging out at the lake house.

I actually don't expect we'll be at the lake house recreating much. Is that the word for doing recreational activities? Anyway, given the 80-minute drive, I think we'll wake up, go, play, return, sleep.

Yeah it won't be a huge deal one way or another. We will make everything work. Anyone like camping in tents? 😂😉

I am just going to throw this out there one more time and remind everyone we will be walking at Sand Valley. SV for some reason feels like you are constantly walking and playing uphill. I was beat after walking it, and we will be doing three days of it and and also playing the Sand Box(if you want). Contrary to popular belief Wisconsin can also get very hot at this time. It could be anywhere from 75-100 degrees much of the summer.

This video gives a pretty good idea of the walk and how so many holes play uphill:

A few pictures from Lawsonia yesterday that don’t do the place any justice:  

My kids like their souvenirs.

Thanks for the outstanding week!! Absolute dream golf trip.

There's gotta be a house on AirBnB or a VRBO close your lake house that would be cheap/easy to rent.

I'll maybe ask the neighbor as well.  I bet he would do it.

Do you really want to be responsible for us animals at your neighbor's house? There's no telling what he might find after we stay there. A few of @iacas's empty cherry coke cans, maybe a golf ball or two, etc...

If this does expand to 12, I would be highly interested. I will run it by the wife tonight but she typically doesnt mind me doing 1-2 golf trips a year. 

If not no big deal, I'll live vicariously through you guys just like I did during the Newport Cup :-D

That is my top concern honestly, those empty Cherry Coke Zero bottles. 😉  Also, my second biggest concern is your unchecked hair growth @DeadMan(but honestly I'm just jealous). 😂

Highly interested or committed to be considered? No rush in deciding. February is when I need to kind of have things set in stone, so we have lots of time, but I likely have to cut the committed to be considered list off at 12 for sure. It will probably be fairly likely we can make 12 work, it will just require some figuring it out on my part.

Highly interested for now, if I do switch to committed to be considered I would only want to be considered for the 9-12 group if that happens, not trying to step on toes of the people who committed before me.

I'd love to come if there is room.

Can you let me know what category that puts you in from Erik's earlier post?

Looks beautiful, and like a complete contract to the Sand Valley courses.

That is kind of what I like about it. It will give us a breather too as far as walking goes as we can take carts. Same distance basically from the lake as well.

Makes sense to me.  If you're thinking about a break from walking, would you want to move it forward, maybe day 3, and day 4 back to the sand dunes?

It probably would for those of us playing 4-5 days, but I want to make sure any of the guys doing 3 days of golf get a chance to play both SV courses, in the even of some bad weather one of the first couple days.  So it is probably best to go 3 days in a row at SV.

Gotcha.  I made 8 days in a row walking in Scotland a couple years ago, including a couple of 36 hole days, I'm sure I'll be good for this one.  I did see that SV has trolleys available, I'll end up using one of those.

Actual footage of me after day 3 at Sand Valley.

    • Not sure about middle schoolers, but I found out at some point early in my golf playing that the high school I went to was notorious for cheating at golf.  Supposedly the coach had players cut a hole in a pocket so they could drop a ball.  I didn't play in high school, but I know who the golf coach was when I was there and it wouldn't surprise me if he did that. I didn't realize there was a reason to not clean one's clubs.  After a shot, I'll almost always wet then dry the face of a club, and I'll check if a face is clean before I hit and will give it a quick wiping before hitting if I think it needs it.  I thought that I did was far more common practice. 
    • No clue how to repair something like that, but I am wondering how a club gets a dent like that in it. That is a serious crater.
    • I’m not an expert on this subject by any means but I would say no it can’t be fixed. Caught my attention because I have the g400 3h and it’s a great club. 
    • I know this is a rare bird and there may not be any help other than trashing the head after pulling the shaft.  On a whim, I found a Ping G400 4h real cheap on the 'bay ($30 plus $15 so I am about $ 50 in).  I knew there were some serious scratches on top, but did not really look at the photos to notice it has a major dent on the top near the toe side.  It is on the way here, so I don't have any actual photos to share.  Here is the photo from the auction.  My real questions are - can the head be repaired (I have been researching this and there is not a lot out there as it relates to golf clubs)?  If repaired, does it become a "non-conforming" club per USGA rules, I don't think it matters as I am not planning to enter any tourney's any time soon.  This may be a grand adventure as I have read that applying heat with a heat gun, followed by Dust-It type spray (CO2) to super chill will get the metal to move.  Will have to see....
