The problem with this type of outing is a lot of *scratch* golfers and guys who drive the ball *300 yards down the middle* would have a lot of explaining to do.

If it's within 50 miles of my house, I'm in! Sorry guys, I don't have the will or the time to go far for golf.

I will go, but only if I can smoke weed and listen to music on the course.

Or something further west.  I'd love to play at Gettysburg.

glen mills works nice for me

Glenn Mills is a decent course.  Easy to hit the greens, but they are large and undulating and two putts are not a given.

They hire local juvenile delinquents to work the grounds there.

Here's an idea -

Every March I meet some old friends of mine in Charleston, SC for 4 days of golf. Most of them are from Akron, Oh. I come up from Orlando, others come from Key West, Atlanta, etc. The organizer is able to arrange an extremely reasonable package with a local hotel - this year it was only $420 for four night's lodging & four rounds of golf. Replays were like $20 if anyone wanted to for an extra 18. If we follow this model something could be arranged that is reasonably priced.

And here's my suggestion for a location - Myrtle Beach. TONS of courses & TONS of hotels. I'd be willing to bet there are some pretty great deals out there as the resorts trip over each other for our business. It doesn't hurt to have the Atlantic Ocean right there too for something to do outside of golf. And Myrtle has a bunch of great restaurants, golf shops (strip clubs hehe), sports bars, etc.

As far as time of year, I would suggest the fall, like October. The weather cools down & hurricane season is pretty much over.

So something like a 4-night package, day one is play wherever you want, days 2, 3, 4 we have some team events.

Thoughts?

I'm game!

I think it would be more realistic to play an 18-hole event - within a regional area.  Then after a few of these regional sites are up and running and get some success brewing - then if / when we garnered enough interest put something together on a national level which could be on a larger scale?  Just my .02.

I'd be open to coordinating an event for the West coast.  Maybe shoot for next Spring?  Gives everyone plenty of time to coordinate their schedules, pick a course/area and book it.

No.  But I have played a number of courses around there (Glenn Mills, Merion, Philadelphia Country Club, Valley Forge, Torresdale Frankford, Cobbs Creek and Aronimink)

Technically hurricane season doesn't end until Nov 30, so October isn't totally out of the woods re a possible storm.

We could get a tropical storm, or as well call them here in Orlando, a six-club wind.

Hey don't forget about the mid-west. Something regional to start, Im in. I'm in Houston and my disclaimer is that I would give anything to hit the ball 300 and don't care if it's down the middle!

Also, gives me plenty of time to recover from a lower back injury. No golf for at least 2-3 months.

Count me in, I'll bring the wife and kid along and we can make a mini vacation out of it. Who am I kidding? Thats the ONLY way I'll be able to go.

If we did it in northern california, Poppy Hills would seem to be a good spot considering a lot of us probably are members of the NCGA, can get advance tee times and get the member discount.

I'd play Poppy Hills... But I just saw on their website that the course is going to go through renovation in 2013.  If we picked this course - it would have to be this year.  And I'd like to have something a little more organized - put it out into the future (like next Spring) so we can get a little better attendance.  And perhaps better prizes?

No clue who the chick is.  A gift from the mods and I've grown fond of it.  So I kept it.

    • I see this often in casual golf.  Frequently if playing a new course with someone who "Knows" the course they inevitably tell you how to play each hole as if they are your caddie.
    • Played a strange 85-shots round at my home course yesterday. 1/13 fairways and 4/18 greens (12/18nGIR) was actually flattering with the long game I displayed. An absolute horrorshow of ballstriking. Thinned it, sliced it, shanked it, pulled it and duffed it short, left and right.  Hull 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Out 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 In Totalt   Par 5 3 4 3 4 4 4 3 5 35 5 3 4 4 5 3 4 4 5 37 72   Truls Ljådal Utslagssted:     --              Gul              Hvit              Rød           5 3 5 4 4 4 5 4 5 39 8 5 4 4 5 3 5 6 6 46 85                                               Fairway RIGHT   LEFT   RIGHT LEFT RIGHT   HIT 1/6 LEFT   RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT   RIGHT LEFT RIGHT 0/7 1/13   GIR Y Y N N Y N N N Y 4/9 N N N N N N N N N 0/9 4/18   Putts 2 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 14 2 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 2 13 27     Upside: From 50 yards and in was excellent and I made 9 up'n'downs from 50 yards and in and no 3-putts. I haven't hit a single 3-putt on my homecourse in the last 5 rounds. My long game can't possibly get any worse and I still shot 85 and 36 stableford points. 
    • This is one of those that depend on the situation.  If you do have a cart path right next to the hazard and your two club lengths drop comes into there, you are entitled to free relief from the path (ball or stance).  In theory you should mark the spot, then take relief from that spot as GUR relief, but many people choose to do it all at once
    • @BeauJoe - welcome to TST. Don't worry about older clubs.  Quite a few of us here have them.  The oldest clubs at home are a Dunlop set from 1986, which I use when I don't want to travel with my clubs from my apartment in the city to our coffee estate
