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.

@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 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

    • 1) I am 100% for vaccine, so tone down the barking a bit here. I am trying to push as many people, POLITELY, to get the vaccine. Because, when has barking at the, or calling people idiots ever gotten them to do what you want them to do.  2) How much more does the vaccine help someone who has had COVID resist getting COVD? If he tests positive, should he get the vaccine if he has sufficient antibodies to resist it from getting COVID? Should we demonize him for it if he is sufficiently protected because he had it.  How many are those who previously had COVID? Just asking questions to get information not to combat you on getting the vaccine or not.  Don't take my questioning as denouncing getting the vaccine. I am not an expert, and any more information is good for me to pass along. I 100% agree with taking the vaccine if possible. Which is a very high % of people out there. 
    • Reading through these reviews one thing stands out.  You guys are lovers of the game, you guys are observant of the nuances of a golf course and you guys can write.  Kudos.  I think that defines your basic TST'er. I have friends that fulfill the first two items, but they can't and/or hate to write.  Too much like high school.  So they'll never come on here.  They are famous for texting only "Ok" to a longish, heartfelt text I might send their way.
    • "probably" should have? When is wife had it? "If" the vaccine "further helps him out"? The guy is clearly anti vaccine. A fool. Pardon me, but it sounds as if you are not 100% on board with the vaccine. You even said that he basically should decide whether he should get the vaccine only if he had tested positive! Why can't these people understand that you get the vaccine to save others, not just yourself. Symptoms or no symptoms. You get the vaccine. Unless you are a selfish dick who doesn't give a sh*t about anyone else. UNLESS your doctor specifically tells you NOT to take it, lest risking your own life. Am I missing something?  The vaccine has "helped" many, many millions of people out by making sure they don't die. And don't pass it on.
    • Nope, because I have no idea if he did or did not isolate himself from public.  Let's say his wife gets COVID, he's taking care of her, and self isolates through the entire process plus a few weeks after she gets better. I rather not be snarky and nasty to a coworker when I do not know what he exactly did. All I know is, he did not get the vaccine because he was around his wife through the entirety of her bout with COVID.  Also, he was working from home, so no issue with social distancing with coworkers. We were not allowed to go into the office unless it was for specific reasons, and you had to report when you showed up, when you left, and who you ended up being around. You were required to wear masks when you were not at your desk. Again, rather not say nasty snarky comments here. You obviously do not know our work situation.  Yes, he probably should have gotten tested. Yes, if the vaccine further helps him out, then he should have gotten the vaccine when available. 
    • Day 110 (7/25/21) - Putting practice today on the PuttOut mat. Did the PuttOut challenge then worked on making putts straight down the lines on either side of the mat.
