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.

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*

    • Driver does seem inadequate since it's got a big head on it but a 3 iron for those who carry would do just fine I imagine. Better yet, just get a cattle prod. It can fit in the bag and doesn't count against you as a club. A lil ol zap to the zipper fly area ought to adjust a persons attitude right quick. 
    • Where is the hole in your game?  Do you struggle close to the green?  Then look at lob wedge.  If you find yourself always needing a 200 yard club then go for a wood or driving iron. I would suggest since you already mentioned you don't hit your hybrid so well replacing it as well.  I don't hit hybrids myself, but there are many different types of hybrids from fat sole driving irons to short shaft woods.  A true hybrid will go a lot farther than an iron of the same loft making a 5 hybrid get into you 3 iron range.  If you go this route I would suggest a 2 and 4 hybrid to cover the gap between driver and irons. My personal preference is toward big fairway woods.  Most people will carry at least a 3 wood.  Lots of pros are using a strong 3 wood, whether it is called a 2 wood, 3+, or mini driver, these guys are using 11 to 14 degree woods with lots of club head speed to get 300 yards out of their fairway wood.  But with slower swings that most amateurs have they should be using a 12 to 14 degree driver meaning they should be using more loft on their fairway wood as well.  To go this route you might want to look at a 4 wood and 7 wood setup.  A 7 wood should be around the same yardage as a 3 hybrid. One last suggestion.  Find a 2nd hand store and look at some older model clubs.  You might just run across a 1 iron for less than $10.  For that price you could grab a hand full of long irons, hybrids, and woods that you can then hit the driving range and find what works for you.  
    • So IMO, if there are easier options to hit that can produce similar results, why play blades?  I had a set of Titleist 710 Cavity Backs and sold them for blades. Simply because they looked cool, and "all good golfers play blades". Well, I wasnt as good a ball striker that I thought I was. I now play AP2's and my handicap is as low as its ever been. For guys like Jordan Spieth and Luke Donald in your example, if they hit it pure most of the time, why risk that 1% where you dont pure it and the blade iron leaves you 15 yards short of your target and in a creek/hazard.  The technology in irons today is incredible for hitting high shots while still being able to work the ball plenty. Im not knocking anyone who plays blades, because that is impressive. It all comes down to preference.
    • KFC fried chicken scented sunscreen.   
    • Exactly, it comes up a lot in some of those "senior" golf tip sections on TV and in Magazines. We don't have those twist-o-flex spines anymore like we did in our 20's, so a little head start helps. But I think ANYONE can use it to help rotation. We may THINK we get around a lot, but sadly if you saw yourself on video... not so much. Then I wouldn't do it with the long irons. :^)  But seriously, folks... I run into this as well and it's my hands... I will tend to flip and steer the club trying to get the perfect ball flight. Hands get ahead and it's pulled or hooked. REALLY trying to keep my head behind the ball and WATCH the club hit the ball helps a bit, though. Good Luck.
