Sounds like fun! I'm imagining this is going to be the first tee box when Pakoh and I go head to head!

Yep.  Milesquare is good for me.  Decent course, fair price, and pretty centrally located for the Socal guys.

Note, lets make this happen.  Course is selected, date is selected and we already have enough guys for at least 2 threesomes.  Would be great to add more peeps too.

For guys that can't make this... We will do it again.  Maybe we can pick a different area like LA or Inland Empire - or even further south to get attendance from various guys?  But lets keep it simple for this first outing and go with Milesquare on the 16th.

Hey, now that you mention it ... I do see the resemblance to Poulter.  I think next time at Golfsmith you gotta buy yourself a visor like that.

Yes, but somebody also mentioned that they think Mile Square might be difficult to get several tee times.  Personally, I am flexible location wise, less flexible time wise.  Mile Square is first choice, but if it's unavailable, I'm fine with the Fullerton option, or RSJ (if we have to).  I think Tristan is coming from Coachella area so I'd also be OK pushing that direction if need be.

Goose Creek, Eagle Glen, Black Gold, whatever.

Not trying to back us up or throw a monkey wrench into the plans, just trying to open up options so if Mile Square falls through we don't have to give up.

so question is who knows the best way to get all of us on a specific tee time on the date early in the day? im not too savy with planning tee times.

absolutely. So cal has many great courses to offer. I do like mile square though as the price is great for the course.

Call the course and request a block of tee times for two foursomes.  See what they say.  It looks like we could get 8 guys... And if the list grows, add another foursome to the mix.

Goose Creek is a great course.  Eagle Glen is solid too - but I like Goose Creek out of the two.  I haven't played Black Gold yet... Milesquare should be first option IMO.  But if they are unwilling to work with us on allocating a set of tee times... Then we look at one of the back-ups.

agoodmanmbk... Are you doing the heavy lifting and getting the tee times?  If so, maybe let them know we are from this site... Tell them we are going to write a review on the course.  Perhaps they will be a little more flexible with times?

Good idea Beach.

Also, didn't one of you mention bringing a couple of other people with you?  If so, we might be at 8 or 9 by now.

EDIT:  It was Lihu that said that, but from the other thread.  He hasn't checked in on this one yet.  So if he's in, and brings two with him, that puts us at 9 I think.

Right now, I count 6.

just called and left a message with the tourney director.  Lady at the pro shop said it is very likely they have availiblity, but they require a deposit for a group outings like this. Not sure how much, prolly depends on the size of the group.

I will let you know what the tourney director says when he calls back.

I live close to the course so i can assist with making this happen... but, I am extremely busy with work this month so if anyone else wants to help out that would be awesome.

thanks*

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
