Meh. Very expensive to maintain decent bunkers from what I hear. I could be in the minority here but for $25, I would be more than fine with light or no sand bunkers as rest of the course okay as you mentioned. 

It's probably not going to be $25. 😄

Uh yeah. Will likely be at least 3x that.

EagleSticks employs dynamic pricing for tee times. While we anticipate weekend morning rates to be around $84, specific rates cannot be published in advance.

 

Virtues will be $120 (unless they do some kind of group discount/rate). Looks like they do have an option of 36 holes and lunch for $170 too, but that might be a bit much in terms of cost and/or golf for some people.

No worries. Just waiting for the loan approval and we are good.

I'll do it!

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

FWIW, I’m pretty sure @GolfLug likes bunkers that have snakes in them. Preferably the venomous variety.

Bring plenty of golf balls.  😉

The general location is acceptable at around 4 hours drive for me. I have a tentative conflict on that date but I could likely work around it. It is close enough to Buckeye Lake, where my spouse has some friends with a lake house. I might be able to drop her off or commute from there. Keep up the solid work, @StuM

36 holes in 1 day could be hard for any trying to drive in & home the same day.

what do others think?

I thought it was a stay and play package? It’s not 36 holes in the same day.

2 different things here.

Virtues offers 36 holes in one day with lunch for $170.

And yes @StuM, I figured not everyone would be interested in 36 in a day at Virtues but just wanted to throw that option out there for people who wanted to get in as much golf as possible. Its about an hour drive for me so I'm most likely only going to play 18.

There is also a stay and play option where you stay in a house on property at Virtues and you get one night's lodging and one round at Virtues and one at Eagle Sticks. Unsure of pricing or availability of that for the weekend @StuM is targeting.

Gotcha.

I probably won’t do 36 in one day. The tentative plan would be to drive in from Erie maybe on Saturday for a round, stay in Ohio overnight, play Sunday and drive back.

I live in Central NY. 6 hours would be doable, but it would depend on my work schedule as well, I work at a golf course from April-October.  I may be able to take a couple days off, but it’d have to been like one Friday, Saturday, Sunday deal.

Guys, working to firm up our plans.  Below is what I have.  I will need to know who plans on doing both dates and also Hotels.  As of now I have 6 tee times for both Saturday & Sunday and the courses know that may change.

  • Saturday June 1st
    • Eaglesticks Golf Club
    • 2655 Maysville Pike
    • Zanesville, OH 43701
    • Tee Times beginning at 10:15am
      • This may be able to move to starting at Noon which would give more time for those driving that morning but also make it a later day for those driving home that day
    • They will provide an area for us to meet, eat & drink after the round
      • Foo & Drink available to order at your expense.
  • Sunday June 2nd
    • Virtues Golf Club
    • One Long Dr.
    • Nashport, OH 43830
    • Tee Times beginning at 8am
  • For those spending the night:
    • Hampton Inn near the Virtues
    • I need to get the correct address and will post.

For those playing ONLY on Saturday: $75 for the round which includes the cart.

For those playing both days & staying in the hotel: $239 per person - This price assumes Double Occupancy in the room for 2 golfers.  If you want an individual room for yourself to to stay alone or with a non-golfer that will need to be worked out.  For those staying in the hotel they a breakfast.  The $239 includes both rounds of golf, the hotel (Double occupancy) and taxes.

If you want to golf both days but NOT have a hotel (or book your own hotel), I will need to get the Virtues cost (sorry, I forgot to ask that)

I have time to finalize numbers (I need to confirm with them on May 15th).  At this time, please add your name to the tags below if interested and also answer the following questions:

  • Will  you golf Only on Sat. June 1 or both Sat & Sunday?
  • Will you need a hotel the night of Sat. June 1st and if so:
    • will you share with another golfer or do you need a private room?
    • Will a spouse or non-golfer join you?
  • Is 10:15 start time OK or should we move back to noon on Saturday?

Thanks & looking forward to a fun weekend.

My gps says 4 hours from Ann Arbor. If I am one of the later tee times, that would work. I could be there at 9:45 for a 10:15 tee off but that is not ideal. Conclusion: if there are 8-12 players will to be in the first 2 tee times, selfishly that is fine with me. Right now I plan on staying the night and playing Sunday.

Let me know what the different dates might be. Stay away from Father's Day.  😉

My plan is to drive into Ohio on Friday, so I'll be staying in the area both Friday and Saturday night. I could do their stay and play package but I'd still have to find my own accommodations for Friday night, so in all likelihood I might just find a hotel to stay at for both nights. I'm not 100% sure ATM.

Lets try to finalize some dates and then we can get concrete plans.

Don't plan it just around me, but the June 7,8,9 weekend doesn't work for me.

I had thought it was supposed to be the prior weekend 31,1,2 which I can do.

    • If the PGA Tour wants to distance itself from the integrity of the Official Rules of Golf, then fine. 
    • PGA Tour amending rule on incorrect scorecards (aka the Jordan Spieth rule), effective immediately Jun 18, 2024 | 8:31 AM Good change. Ok, lemme have it die hards!
    • Amazing US Open to watch. Of course I was rooting for Bryson, but a little part of me wanted a W for Rory. Hope this fuel Rory to win a major soon.  Interesting to see how much is going to take for Aberg to win his first major.  Scheffler is human, thank god.. we need more tight final rounds like this. 
    • This discussion and Bryson’s media figure reminds me of a trend you see all over the place in social media and Internet in general: staging. I don’t use Instagram a whole lot, but enough to come across videos that are obviously staged, but presented as happening randomly. It falls in like with the “fake news” part of the world where you can’t trust anything. People (influencers, celebrities, politicians etc.) throws stuff out all the time that are straight up lies, pretending ignorance, or twisted to make it sound more interesting than it actually is. Then there’s the overreactions. Youtube and Instagram are filled with thumbnails of shocked content creators “LOOK WHAT HAPPENED 🫣😲🫣”, then it’s some staged or stupid shit. I miss the time when most of what you found online was not staged or stupid. The sad part is that it works, generate clicks, ad revenue and people make millions on that stuff. At least Bryson is primarily a professional golfer. Bryson raking the 18th bunker while holding the trophy puts more of his face in the media. There’s no reason to do it, but it makes for some good photos and he’s building his persona. From the entire week you can see how he interacts with the audience way more than most of them out there. Part of it is probably just being Bryson and giving the audience something extra, but I always have the thought in the back of the head that it’s not the entire reason. Players being emotional, engaging and showing more of themselves than hitting a golf ball is good, but at some point you cross the line into being fake for the sake of attention.
    • It's not false if all they did was break ground but not build the thing until 2017. Again, the first "location" wasn't really a location if it was some dirt with a few ceremonial shovel scoops taken out of it. I don't think it was ever actually built. The second article doesn't even mention the first "location."
