I received a PM asking if I was going to start this thread... I think it's a great idea.  Glad to see/hear that the number of folks who attended the Spring outing increased over the Winter outing.  So I'd like to see that participation number continue to increase.  And I'm definitely going to find a way to make it to this next tournament!!

So with that being said... Where/when do we want to have the next outing?  I was thinking June would be a solid choice... Especially mid/late June? My vote is for the Inland Empire area as it will be a central location for most of the users here in Socal.  There are some solid courses... And a few that come to mind are:

Goose Creek

Oak Quarry

I voted Inland Empire as well for 2 reasons:

1.  Based on the fact that we have several OC members, a couple of LA area members, SD members, and Palm Springs members, it seems like the most logical central point.  Of course, I'm not opposed to continuing to move it around either, and would play wherever we ended up having it.

2.  I think that we will get the best value out there.  The prices are quite a bit more reasonable than nicer OC courses.

End of June works for me!

lol Yeah unfortunately LACC isn't an option.  I voted for Inland Empire but I'm good with whatever.  I think Mr. Desmond played Oak Quarry and really liked it.

Hhaha no worries.  Yeah, I've played Oak Quarry and Goose Creek.  Both are very solid courses.  Oak is a little more of a premium... Depending on what guys are willing to spend would really dictate which course.  Personally, I think you get more bang for your buck at Goose.

I'm actually playing Goose on Sunday with GD.

Yes, but are you sure that his pants are "of a tailored nature?"

Just thought of something last night and wanted to mention it here: If we're playing in June, it could get a bit warm out in the I.E.

That said, based on what Mr. Desmond had to say about Oak Quarry, I'd really enjoy playing there as long as its not 100+ (degrees)

I vote for the IE... temperature wise, it shouldn't be too bad... probably 90s. Oak Quarry would be a great choice, I haven't played it myself but know buddies who have that raved about it. Also have heard very positive things about Goose Creek. Goose Creek is nice because even from the tips it's only 6500ish yards and slopes at 127 so even the higher handicap guys won't get their ass kicked too much. The course where we did AimPoint, Dos Lagos, also looked pretty decent.

Second vote is for the San Diego area... further drive for most but the weather will be a little better. No clue on the course down there.

The Temecula area might also be a solid area. I really like The Links at Summerly in Lake Elsinore and their rates seem to be pretty reasonable.

    • Maybe for some of them. That green complex looked brutal tho. Not really a good bailout for where the pin was. I think men would have struggled with that pin position too. 
    • The very latest.  Still across the line...finding it hard to work on that and get it fixed.  The downswing/hands in and extending part is going well though.  I've been setting up closer to the ball since I didn't like the posture I saw earlier this year.  I really like where that is at right now. Problems?  Still consistency.  When I'm on, I'm on and it feels good.  Miss is just a straight pull...not a hook.  If I keep my right elbow/forearm tucked in I almost never have the over-the-top pull. Oh, and sorry about the red @iacas.  I'm in the blue camp, not @mvmac's red.    
    • Yeah, and a convinient bail out spot for short left shots. 
    • I do a mix of all those things. Except massage..they hurt.. When i was younger i used to be all into super prep and trying to map out the course i was going to be playing to the shot. Then in the tournament i dont hit the shots anywhere near i planned out anyway... I played better once i stopped doing that because i felt i was free to just play the shot in front of me, instead of being frustrated that my round wasn't following some script i made up. I think its important to have good survey of the property where you're playing and have a general plan of attack that fits your game, but dont overdo it.  As far a scoring goes, bogeys don't kill you. Doubles or more do. Bogey should always be your in mindset after a miserable shot, and if you get par or better in the process - bonus!  Trying to play hero recovery shots most often leads to big numbers. Take whats in front of you, even though it may taste like weaksause sometimes.  But I would say overall, focus and self confidence is the biggest weapon you're going to have. Know that you belong and feeling like you're the best player there. If you dont win, its because you let someone else win, not because you're not the best.   Dont worry about what your playing partners are doing. They are not putting the ball in the hole for you. Play your game to the best you got and you'll be fine. Enjoy yourself. Theres no better rush in golf than competition. Its a reward in itself. 
    • Does anyone experience hitting sand shots that hardly get off the sand and hit the inside of the bunker?  I am experiencing this bladed shot and don't know why so I'm open to suggestions.  I worked on it today and I seem to be much better off hitting a normal pitch like shot out of the bunker as opposed to opening the face, exposing the bounce, etc.  Interested in any thoughts.
