Atlas Valley Golf Club


Recommended Posts

Atlas Valley has opened again as a semi-private.   It was designed by Tom Bendelow who also designed Medinah Country Club.   2021 saw the course reopen after being closed for the previous few years.   Course history.

I've played the course twice.    They are throwing a ton of time and money at the course.   The sand traps are white silicone sand and the fairways are very forgiving.   There is plenty of elevation changes which makes it more challenging.    

It's only about 4 miles from my house and I will be a frequently player

Was looking at Atlas Valley, looks like it would be fun to play and it is only @ 1 hour from my home.  Anyone open to a small Michigan TST Meetup?

@Lugowskins I am tagging you since I think this is not far out of the way for you.  Any interest?

When are you thinking? During the week wouldn't work for me and I have my Saturdays taken up until July 17th but could probably make a Sunday work.

I had not thought of a date.  I can do Sundays.  If others want go join we may need to schedule around the TST Sun Valley trip.  Let’s see who else is interested

I'm available but Father's day usually is very very busy and slow.   I can't speak for Atlas Valley.   I've only played once on Father's Day at a different course and vowed to not play because the pace was over 5 hours.    If that's the only day people can play, I'll play though.

Good point, if not June 20 and Sticking to Sunday’s I could do July 11, 18 or 25

I could survive a 5 hour round if the company is good but that would kill the whole day once I add a little range & putting time, an hour drive each way and the 19th hole. Still I will do it if that is what works for others.

Lets go for the 18th that would work for me

@dennyjones @Lugowskins I will book for Sunday July 18th.  I cannot book it until @ July 11th so will not know tee time until then.

I would be open to 9am(ish) if that is good for you guys. 

Also, walking or riding?  I'm willing to walk but do not care either way.

We have room for a 4th.  @Billy Z are you interested in being our 4th at Atlas Valley on July 18th? (I know you are playing it on Aug. 2nd, this would give you "Course Knowledge" so you can beat your friends when you go on Aug. 2nd.)

Any ideas on a 4th if @Billy Zcan't? I do not know any other TST members personally so not sure who is close.

I'll put it on my calendar.   Earlier, like 9 am is better for me but I'm flexible.

I could do 8am, just not sure how long of a drive you and @Lugowskins might have.  I am only looking @ 50 minute drive so I can be flexible.

I am shutting down my game somewhat this year as my right ankle is needing surgery and can only take so much golf. I am down to once a week and have full schedule based on that limited frequency. I appreciate you asking me, but sorry I cannot attend. 

thank you, Tom

    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing. 
    • It’s been a month or two since I last played, but I took Classic out for a spin, and it worked just fine. The data was able to transfer from my device using my computer as well.
