@StuM, this is the "Ryan M" I was noting above. Ryan is going to talk to "Mike D" about playing too.

He’s going to room with Mike D, who needs to come on and say he’s coming, so yes.

I was at Eaglesticks today to watch my son in a college tournament. Course is in decent, but not great, shape for this early in the season. Greens look nice, fairways were ok, couple rough spots in the rough. Bunkers were a disaster and were considered GUR. LCP in the fairways with several plugged balls. There was significant flooding in the area this week, so I assume that affected the bunkers a lot. However, the bunkers have not been in good shape any of the times I have been there.

Probably a concession they have made over the years. A lot of golf courses can't afford to maintain them. I think they should just fill them and leave only a few where needed. Or it takes years for them to put in new bunkers since it costs so much to do so. 

Yea, with the amount of rain Ohio has gotten, especially in the lower half of the state, I am not shocked it isn't in the best of shape. I doubt they could get equipment out there without risk of damaging the ground (tire ruts).

I'm trying to talk my wife into letting me. We just bought another house, put money into our other one to get it ready to rent. So convincing her to let me spend money on a golf trip, on top of being away for a full day can be..... challenging

You are correct about this trend. I'm sure we've all seen it. While not the end of the world, it's kind of too bad.

I play Bent Tree a lot here in Central Ohio. I like the place, and have a good relationship with the folks there. 8 - 10 years ago their bunkers were always in great condition. Then they slowly got worse and worse until 2021, when the bunkers were down-right-unplayable. Recently they have removed a bunch of them and started working on the ones they kept. They are trying to strike a balance between having fewer bunkers but ones which are better maintained. I think they are doing the right thing. 

You hit the nail on the head "I think they should just fill them and leave only a few where needed." No matter how nice the fairways and greens are, and even if you don't end up in a bunker, walking by bunker after bunker that's hardened, filled with weeds and unmaintained just gives you an opinion about the course that's not particularly positive.  

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Sorry I won't make it this time. Only missed my spring visit to Erie by 5 weeks. Maybe my absence will cause it to not rain.  Have fun everyone.

@StuM, I imagine you're still planning to keep spots open if, say, we have 14 people committed, leaving two spots open on a particular day. Is that right? Four foursomes… with two open spots?

I'm going to mentioning this to some people I know, of course. Looking like we'll get to 16 on day 1, and 14 on day 2.

Thank goodness this is in June. The entire state is in a flood watch, and i am not sure it will dry out by June 😛.

    • With Sergio they played the whites, saying that they wanted a challenge and it would be too easy from the reds. If Bryson had played with Sergio on this course and this day instead of DT then they'd have gone quite a lot lower.
    • Day 8: did a stack session.
    • Gotcha. Don't remember it being that short in Paige episode (the only other one I watched in it's entirety), but to be fair I wasn't paying close attention to the hole lengths. 😜
    • Probably relative to the other courses he has played in the break 50 series. He's done them all from the front tees.
    • So this wasn't a bad watch. For a guy pushing age 80 he strikes the ball well. I mean, if I am doing what he is doing 30 years from now, count me in. Imma pass on that putting stroke though.... wow. That's saying something with my putting skills. Not making fun of it but it's almost like he had to keep the putter from falling out of his hands after impact every time. Not sure if that's a recent thing but it plays out like some neurological condition.   BDC claims 'it's a hard course' to break 50, and then proceed to play putt-putt tees with 320-yard par 5s.. lol. Dood drove almost every par 5 from the tee. Anyway, not exactly the 'greatest round of golf that has ever been played' as expectedly self-advertised by 45, but I've certainly seen worse by far.
