Michigan Golf Trip


Recommended Posts

I have some knowledge of Sugarbush.   If you have questions about it, don't hesitate to ask.    I play the course many times throughout the year because their senior rate is so low.  It's always in good shape but tough and long.

You are getting close to my area.  Cascades, Calderone and Grande are all nice courses.  I am not sure the Grande allows walking.  I think their rates include the cart but maybe you can walk and just pay for the cart.  Cascades is a good walking course.  Calderone is a bit more of a chore with some distance between tee and next green.

Good intel thanks! Yeah I noticed on the Grande website it was only one rate. I assume it will be busy and since I'm most likely going as a single I'm hoping they let me walk to cut down on the waiting in between shots.

I actually grew up in the thumb and went to Mayville schools.  Was a member at Greenbrier and my parents still are.

What's your name? I went to Mayville as well and I'm sure I know your parents

Well, today I was able to book my trip to Garland (Lewiston, MI).  June 28th to July 1st.  Hoping the COVID crap is relaxed and they open the breakfast buffet and have a full menu for dinner.  Last year they scaled things back, it was still good but just not as good as in years prior.  In trying to work out days, times & courses they were already filling up which is good for golf.  I know busy resort courses can be slow courses but we need them to make money to stay open so I am glad they are busy.  My wife & I are considering adding a couple days at the end and drive up to Treetops but have not decided on that yet.  May just wait later in the year and do a 2nd trip up to Northern Michigan.

I drive past you at least once a month on my way to Toledo.  If you are open to it maybe I fit in a round of golf either before or after I visit my father in Toledo.

    • Yeah, @iacas, here’s another article echoing the last one you posted: CDC Studies 'Breakthrough' COVID Cases Among People Already Vaccinated COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective but don't always provide perfect protection. Some...  
    • Lesson coming up on Thursday 4/15: After 5-6 weeks of really good ball striking (by my standards), full swing has regressed. After my last lesson, I had some backswing and transition weight/pressure shift feels that worked really well. I was hitting almost everything with center-face contact (within tolerance of a mid-handicap player), AoA and launch angles were all in the right window, ball was going where I aimed it, shot shape was reliable, distance improved. Then in my last round suddenly I had no idea where the ball was going to go. I have a little deal with myself, that if I can get my index below 10 and keep it there, I am getting fitted for a new driver, so I am a little miffed at what I experienced last round. I doubt there was a sudden change (maybe there was, who knows), but what I suspect is that there was some slower, less noticeable regression that was going on, that finally transitioned into a significant on course problem. Putting and short game are still good enough (nothing special), so that at least I am not losing any strokes with these elements. I've gone back to basics for now with practicing, and I don't want to over-self-diagnose any issues and use a shotgun approach to problem solving, so happy that I have a lesson this week to figure out what's gone wrong.
    • Day 483: Planned on filming my swing today, but it got too dark to get good exposure with slo-mo phone camera videos. Did some Covid-19 day-3, 4, 5 drills. Hit some balls with a 75% speed full swing, with lots of rehearsals between balls. Hitting the ball toward heel, launch angle a bit high, and start line not great. Something is awry at the moment, but I've got a lesson scheduled on Thursday so I'm not going to troubleshoot too much right now.
