  • The back (black) tees are 6584.

I would think most will play black, with a few on the blue.

@Hardspoon isn’t allowed to play from the forward tees anymore.

I am probably one of the shorter hitters in the group, 220-230 typical carry distance.  I mostly play 6,000 to 6,200 yard courses, but they are generally less wide open than Deer Ridge.  The score card looks like there are only 3 holes from the Black that I could have trouble reaching with 2 good shots (1, 13, and 14, in the 430 to 450 yard range).  And 2 of those 3 are likely downhill.  If everyone wants to play black, I am totally fine with that.  And if some others want to play blue, I could join them.  So no worries.

I won't be playing the forward tees - I'll be playing the Blue ones.  😉

(actually, at 71.8/129, I'm fine with the Black tees in this case...)

Is the course walkable?

If you like hills 😉 Doesn't look like it is spread out though (long distance between holes).

They’re forward of the tees @iacas and I will be playing from, so they’re forward tees 😜

Black tees for all! (Unless you're over the age of 60.)

Groupings are above.

Playing the black tees that is... not turning 60. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I don't actually care where people play. But, in carts, it's at least somewhat easier/faster if the carts play the same tees. Meaning the two people in each cart. So if you do have a mixed group, consider putting the black tee players together in a cart and the blue tee players together in the other cart.

But also, be a man, and play the black tees. 😉

Unless you're old. 😄

BTW, Black Dog is supposedly very good. I think many of us can plan to eat there afterward. Quickly, yes, because we have to get home. But it'll also save us the travel time.

I like walking courses myself - plus, it's my cardio, haha.

That said, if no one else is walking, I'll leave my cart at home.

And, if we're riding, since I'm far removed from 60, want to share a cart, @ChetlovesMer?

I'm cool with whatever.  @iacas, are/can we carpool?  I don't see why we'd all have to drive ourselves and, at least in my case, after driving from NY to PA, and having to drive back a few days later, I'd prefer to not drive to Ohio.

 

As an aside, I'm really excited about this.  My work schedule has been crazy lately but should calm down after today so haven't practiced at all as of late, nor have I played, and, as such, I'm really excited to meetup and play with you all! 🙂

What's the range and/or putting green situation? Do you know? I think we'll probably do the same.

Looks like they have a range. Their website offers a range membership pass. The aerial view shows what looks like a putting green.

    • Welcome! I think this forum is a great place to learn more about the golf swing. There are of course a ton of resources out there to find with search engines, books, videos etc., but it can be a challenge to navigate it all for the best content. There's a lot of misinformation out there. This forum already has a lot of existing content and you can start new topics yourself. One thing a forum provides is discussion, different points of view and a place to put your thoughts into words. The best way to learn is often by teaching, because you have to know what you are talking about. Most of us aren't teachers, instructors or pros, but we can still discuss the golf swing, use the resources we find and put it into our own words. If we get it wrong, someone else may point it out. If you want to share, the Member Swings subforum is a place to post your own swing and get feedback. Technology has come a long way, and combined with dedicated people around the world, it's easier than ever to find accurate information. They use the best players in the world to find commonalities and distill the golf swing down to what is almost universally true for all the best players. That means to ignore Scheffler's feet, Furyk's octopus and other outliers, but focus on what they have in common. The essentials which amateurs should also try to achieve.
    • So I'm a 2 handicap and I know my golf swing is garbage but I also know I have a very very limited understanding of how the golf swing works. And I also know that I'm the type of guy that likes to dive ultra deep into topics I'm interested in. Like for example; The past few years I've learned video editing (specifically how to make videos that go viral on social media), and I've spent a lot of time just reading the manual that came with one of the video editing programs I use. (the manual is 4.5k pages, and obviously very indepth, but I've learned a ton with it.) So far to try and learn more about the golf swing I've read books + listened to podcasts/interviews with coaches/teachers combined with listening to great players talk/give clinics. Sometimes the teacher being interviewed talks about books that they really like, or coaches they look up to, and then I "travel down the knowledge tree" and try to look for those peoples interviews, content etc. Ex, An interview with Randy Smith led me to Chuck Cook, then Chuck Cook led me to reading the books by Jim Hardy (mainly the + and - book). I'm well aware that the knowledge I'm getting is surface level but again I don't really know where to "go" to learn in depth about the swing. To try and supplement the knowledge gap, I've made a set-up in my basement where I have two mirrors + a webcam I can use to film myself and dissect my own swing + watch pro swings and try to figure out what they do. But again, I know I'm not really getting the full picture. So my question is, is there a better place to go/process I could apply to learn about the golf swing? I know there's The Golfing Machine but isn't that mostly outdated information now, and there's no real updated version, right? I don't really want to hire a teacher, partly because I don't really trust most teachers (I've had some really bad experiences lol), and I want to be self-sufficient as a player. My line of thinking is, the better I can understand the golf swing, the better I can understand my own swing. Where do I go? Also I should note, I have a ton of time to devote to the game + the golf swing, I basically work from home and I'm in a very fortunate position where I have a very low living cost. Cheers.          
    • Day 43: Hit 20 balls with 6-iron, working with new feel. Seemed to work okay, but start line is a little more right than I’d like to see. Hit 15 Almost Golf balls with driver, same feel. Did pitching.chipping practice, focusing on good contact. Putted in home office for 20 min using my dog’s Kong as a target.
