  • The back (black) tees are 6584.
  • The next (blue) tees are 6081.

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?

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.

Looking forward to it. 
Playing the black tees that is... not turning 60.

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.

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

 

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! 🙂

I'm riding down with @billchao and @boogielicious.

@Divot Master is driving from Erie, too. Send him a PM?

Looks good. I will try to show up about an hour early to the first tee time. 

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. 

Great, not that I expect to benefit much from hitting some balls beforehand haha

    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.  
    • Welcome to TST! Golf is a grand journey we all love around here. It’s disastrously wonderful. Cheers!
    • Day 48: Worked on priority piece with 4-iron. Multiple rehearsals between balls. Focused on having a quiet swing,
