Monsieur,

I looked at a second home in the area, and inquired about joining the Cliffs network of clubs. The $150,000 initiation fee cleared that up right quick! Just curious how you managed to get on the course, knowing that you aren't local... I asked to play a round when looking at properties, and they said no, even if I was a prospective member. Seemed odd, and maybe they weren't taking me seriously.

Anyway, they all look like gorgeous, well-maintained courses. And yes, Tiger is involved in building a new Cliffs course in the area... Enjoy the round, and post your experiences, please.

Me and the wife just played Cliffs Vineyard today. Everything is 1st class there. If you get a chance try to go there too.
FWIW, if you buy property the family membership is only 50k now.

I ended up playing at the Cliffs at Keowee Vinyards because the Cliffs at Glassy were being earrated and was closed. We had someone in our company that has a membership and was able to set up the tee time.

The course is amazing and is the first Fazio course that I have played. The course goes through the natural terrain very nicely with elevated greens, shots over canyons and water and breathtaking views. The course was in superb condition and it was a great round.

We had dinner at the clubhouse afterward and the food was exceptional. The service is top notch. On a side note...I was wearing some cargo shorts and they almost made me buy some regular shorts as they have a no cargo short policy. I'm glad that they let me slide...but I didn't see any information on the web site...as if I had, I would have dressed apporpriately.

I would love to go back some day and when I have an extra $150k lying around, I would consider joining!

Shot a 94...certainly not my best showing. I put a lot of balls into the trees and I think I took 5-6 penalty's because of that. It took me about 4 holes to settle down and I started playing better. I think that if I played it again, I would certainly see a better score. My putting was great...just took me a bit to get to the green. Beautiful course.

Vinyards is far easier than Glassy; I would guess 8-10 strokes from the tips, especially if you haven't played either one before. You can see what you have at the Vinyards, Glassy is another story. Have to hit accurate 275 yd drives high to get anything going. Glassy sure has my respect!!!!

I've played Vineyards and Glassy. Glassy will rip your throat out. It's just a very tough course. Lots of very difficult elevation changes. Vineyards is a great track as well, just not as tough for me as the mountain course. I also echo what was said about how classy the Cliffs courses are. It's a first class operation.

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
