TST Takes on Sand Valley, WI (July 18-23, 2021)

So I've taken a look, coming from the DC area it'll cost me about the same to go to either Milwaukee or Minneapolis, and flight schedules aren't awful for either one, even with a stop getting to Milwaukee.  If someone is going to join me, I'm probably up for playing Lawsonia on the Friday, staying overnight at Milwaukee, and flying home Saturday.  I may even decide to catch a baseball game, the Brewers are at home that day.  If anyone else chooses Milwaukee, I hope we can coordinate and share a ride.

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

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

My kids like their souvenirs.

I really want to try to fly out of Milwaukee and hit up Lawsonia, but I'm not sure it's going to work. The flight times out of there are not great, and it's a decent amount more expensive than flights out of Minneapolis. 

In any event, I won't be able to stay overnight in Milwaukee on the Friday. But if I do end up flying out of Milwaukee, I will definitely join you at Lawsonia.

I’m interested in playing Lawsonia. Looks like I can get a flight out of MKE around 9pm on the 23rd which should be plenty of time.

What time are the MKE people arriving on the 18th? I’ll try to arrive around the same time and we can carpool.

My flight arrives at 11 am. I might even think about playing on the way up. Plenty of sunlight.

I'm looking at about 11:39 for arrival to MKE.

I can catch a flight that arrives at 11:09 AM if you guys want to meet up at the airport.

Sounds good, I pulled the trigger on my flights, Arrive MKE at 11:39 on Sunday, 7/18.  I'm scheduled to leave on Friday at 6:51 PM, I can change that if I decide to catch a ball game.  @GolfLug, we're going to have to hustle if we're going to drive a couple of hours to Lawsonia, play golf, drive 2 more hours to MKE and get you on a 5 PM flight.  Its do-able, I think, but barely.

Yea I’m looking to book my flights, too. Right now I’m looking at 11:09 AM arrival on 7/18 and 6:29 PM departure on 7/23. We can meet up at the airport, split a car rental, then do whatever on Sunday.

I have never flown with my clubs so I have to get a travel bag, but it looks like I can check in my golf clubs with United and take all of my clothes and stuff in a carry on.

You might pack some clothes with your golf bag, as long as you stay under the 50 pound limit.  I'm on United too, we'll probably meet in baggage claim.

Yeah, as long as we are done by about 1 pm should be fine. Allows some leeway for Friday rush traffic. PM me your cell number again. Lost quite a few numbers when my IT guy did a factory reset on my cell.

MKE is also pretty easy and fast to get to your gate.  It is still pretty much a small town airport in a lot of ways.

Just booked a flight out MKE at 4:20pm (nice) on Friday. I'm waiting to book my flight into MKE for a little bit - the prices at the times I want are a little high at the moment. But I'm in for Lawsonia on Friday morning.

Is that going to give you enough time to play and get to the airport? We were talking about time possibly being an issue for @GolfLug with his 5:00PM flight.

I think we can probably make it work. Worst case, if I and @GolfLug have to book an earlier tee time than everybody else, I'm fine with that. Or I can play as a single. I might be tired of you all by then. 😛

@billchao, @DeadMan  @DaveP0432 hour drive from LL to MKE. So estimating have to be done by 1 pm. If we can tee off at 8:30 am..ish.

BTW, @DeadMan flying out even earlier, no?

    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing thing you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
    • There's been a lot of stories in the news lately that, because enough people have not been vaccinated (thus starving the virus), we may be headed towards mandates.  Not desirable but the 30% to 40% not vaccinated are keeping Covid-19 rolling right along and harming those who have done their part to help beat down this pandemic.
