Northeast Get Together 2021


Recommended Posts

  • Moderator

@billchao, @nevets88, @jamo and I try to get together for a round every year. We generally try to meet in the middle. We are looking to see if other New England, NY and NJ members are interested to get an idea of numbers and location. No date has been set. Bill and I are going to Erie June 12 to 17, so that week is out.  There is also the meet up in Wisconsin in July that Bill is going to. It would be a weekend day. 

Let us know if any of you would be interested and I can map out a place and a potential date.

Just to give some people an idea of possible locations, we played Fox Hopyard in East Haddam, CT a couple of times, Keney Park in Hartford, and The Links at Union Vale in LaGrangeville, NY one year.

I've played the Links at Union Vale half a dozen times; fun course, for sure.  Lost two wedges there....on separate occasions a few weeks apart. *shakehead* 

Anyway, I'm likely in.

I'm about 10 minutes from The Links at Union Vale.  Recovering from a bit of surgery, else I'd love to meetup and play.  I've heard Richter Park in Danbury is good, but no personal experience.

I've played Richter Park.  From what I recall, beautiful views but it was beat up something fierce.

The Links at Union Vale was a good course. I wouldn’t mind playing there again.

Depending where folks come from, West Point Golf Course would be a nice location.

I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for.

We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar.

Any of the above mentioned courses will work for me. I basically need to be back before 5 if possible.

    • “Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.”   Yeah, it sounds like your course at least considers golfers who are playing, i.e., if the “early” closing on Sunday is at 4 or 5, not many still trying to squeeze in a round would be disadvantaged. And then reopening the range at 11:30 on Monday, when the course itself doesn’t reopen until noon, likewise shows consideration.  
    • Finally got a birdie on the index 1 on my home course, its my first ever and it came because of a mishit 9 iron, it's a 440 yard par 4 with a narrow dogleg at about the 220 yard from the tee mark. I had a good drive and left myself 150 yards out but I fatted a 9 iron about 90 yards. I hit a 56 degree wedge perfectly from 60 yards and it took two hops and fell straight in for my first ever hole out from any further than a nGIR distance. Delighted with the shot in what was a poor round
    • I'm getting a little leery of these pros where it looks like they downed three bottles of 5 hour energy before the record button is tapped.
    • I didn’t watch the video, but the thumbnail screenshot has him in position to hit a big block with that right elbow stuck behind him.
    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.
