Syracuse/Albany/Utica Meetup at Valley View Golf Course Mid-late July?


Recommended Posts

Calling all CNY/North Country/Mohawk Valley/Capital Region and Southern Tier Sand Trappers

This means you @RFKFREAK, @colin007, @Elmer and anyone else that you may know on the site in the area.

A Sand Trap outing at Valley View Golf Course in Utica. It is owned by the city of Utica and designed by Robert Trent Jones. It’s about 6600 yards from the tips, and plays to a par of 71.

Greens fees are $40 with a cart. We might be able to have lunch or cocktails or a beverage together and shoot the shit... talk about the birdies we didn’t make and the triple bogeys we did make...

If you’re interested... just post here or PM me. If we get enough interest we might be able to get a group discount.

Let’s have fun.

Valley View is a great course. Depends on availability.

Yeah which can get a little dodgy in the summer due to tournaments and such, once we have a better idea of the number I’ll call Valley View. 
 

Is there others that would be interested? @Carl3?

I can see if golf buddy is interested. My son is getting married the weekend of the 31st and I do have some club events that month.

My one no-no weekend is July 2, 3, and 4 (Club Championship). Other than that it can be any Saturday in July or August… (unless I decide to do the member-guest August 6, 7, and 8th)

My days off are already scheduled for the summer, and most days are already booked.
depending on what day this outing is scheduled for, I will do my best to try and make it.

    • Which is why @iacas and TST instructors in general recommend priority pieces. This could really screw someone up who’s hip rotation wasn’t a priority piece or who’s hand/wrists movements were. I vote D-. Not an F purely because of his enthusiasm…lol.
    • For the record and for what it’s worth, I’m not a Xander fan. I just think he’s pretty good. 
    • Maybe. Maybe not. That’s why I said it “could be.” Statistically things aren’t in his favor because, as you mentioned, the field is pretty good. But he’s also pretty good—one of the best statistically-speaking. Sometimes just a little bit of success can spur one on to do more. He looks like he has the talent, so I guess we will just have to wait and see.  Curious: is there something in his game or swing you see that you don’t like? You’d know better than I, for sure. To me, he looks very solid. I didn’t know if maybe you saw something he needs to fix, just based it purely on the numbers, or the fact that you don’t like him and that your dislike of him could have tainted your view of him (even if deserved!). 
    • And I'd wager that within a reasonable version of "launching pad" it won't be. He won a weak, limited-field event. I'm sure it feels great - it's one event every FOUR years instead of majors which are four events every year (usually). But it's not even as good as winning a WGC event or the Masters or something (also limited field events) as an actual achievement. I'd be willing to wager that simply because: There are a lot of other good golfers out there. He hasn't done it yet, and for "this" to be the catalyst, he'd have to do it within the next year or so for this to be the "launching pad." Who cares if he, like Sergio, wins a major 15 years later? The 1999 PGA was not the launching pad for Sergio's Masters win. Nor were any of the Ryder Cups in which he played so well, etc.
    • Make some swings in a mirror and try different things. See what your feels produce. I don't really know what you mean by "using your knees" in this way, and quite honestly, I don't think you do either… not because you don't think you know, but because you're probably not doing what it feels like you're doing. Move the hips properly, and see what the other body parts do. Do it in a mirror so the feedback is immediate.
