TST SoCal Golfers - Fall 2013 Outing - 10/13 @ Oak Quarry (Riverside, CA)

379 posts in this topic

I figure I might as well start this thread now and we can start throwing out ideas for our next outing. We've gone from 10 players the first time we did this in December to nearly 20 this weekend. It would be great to see that number grow again.

I was thinking either September or October for this one. As far as area goes, the Temecula area could be good... they have some nice courses around there and they are usually reasonably priced all year long. The IE was another suggestions and by that time it should be cool enough for all of the coastal guys not to melt (doesn't matter to me, I'm playing today with it being 105°).

Anyways, start throwing out ideas and courses and we'll see where we end up this time around.

tristan,  Temecula sounds great I would think Oct would be good, playing in a 105 does not!

I'd love to see the number of players continue to grow.  Please get your friends and family interested to play in these if you want.

Secondly, regarding the date(s)... As long as it is not the first Saturday of the month... I should be good to go.

Here are some suggestions in terms of courses to target for playing the next outing....

- Industry Hills

- Oak Quarry

- Goose Creek

- Tijeras Creek

In general, Temecula works for me if everyone wants to go down that path... I've been meaning to play Journey at Pechanga.  Which is supposed to be really nice - but is quite expensive from what I've heard (I've never played it)?

I've played at Temecula Creek Inn (27 holes) several times because our men's league has held tournaments there.  Regarding Temecula Creek, I believe the courses I have listed above, are all of better value and better layout/play.  But that's just my .02.

Look forward to playing again with you guys.

If we want to do the Temecula area, The Links at Summerly in Lake Elsinore is a course I played a while ago that I thought was a lot of fun. It's unique in the sense that it is set up like a British style links course with burns running through out the course. The pricing there is pretty reasonable as well, I wouldn't think it'd be more than around $50 or so...

I've never played Summerly.  Looks interesting.  Just throwing this out there... What about Aviara in Carlsbad, followed by a visit to the Ely Performance Center?

Haha!  That would be awesome!

I've never played in the Temecula area, but that would be perfect.  I can see it already.  Kids go to grandparents for the weekend, wife and I drive out to Temecula Saturday morning for wine tasting then dinner, and she drops me off at the course on the way home.  Beach or golfswine ... can I have a ride home?  Otherwise, the wife is staying and playing with us.

Just looking at the area on Google maps, I came across Cross Creek ... it looks nice too.  There is also Redhawk, that one looks nice too.  I've also heard good things about the Golf Club at Rancho California in Fallbrook.

You've been there plenty. :) The last time Mike and I were there they stressed the word "Performance" and hinted not too subtly that you weren't living up to the name and were thus giving the place a bad reputation. Banana!*

* That's how the cool kids type "Bahahahahahah."

GD great idea, I could get my father in law to bring my son out so I could hop a ride with them home, this sounds better all the time.

hahaha you gotta love auto correct!  Erik, I agree - once we select a date... Lets stick with it.

PS. You missed out on a great outing yesterday... I think everyone really enjoyed it?  I didn't hear any complaints or beefs?  I think the only issue throughout the day was one of the foursomes carts broke down on the back 9!?

I'd be happy to play in them, but some people wimp out with lame excuses and don't help to cover my flight expenses by attending incredibly inexpensive instruction sessions… y'see?

Fellas,

I'm glad you guys had a great time.  I'm sorry I had to withdraw, the pics looked like you guys were having a blast.  I'm defintely interested in the next outing, and will do what I can to arrange my schedule accordingly. I promise not to order clubs the week of the next event.  D'oh!

Tristan, special thanks for following up to make sure everybody was taken care of.  I hope to meet you guys next time.

Like Carx I apologize for not making it, and WILL be attending in the fall...I would just like to remind everyone that it tends to stay warm well into the fall, and the desert is dicey....I'd obviously prefer to stay close to the coast, all other things being equal, but am open whatever course is decided. I've actually been wanting to play Black Gold and Oak Quarry =)

Obviously have to ask if anyone has any pull with Irvine Company or anyone at Pelican hill??? (A guy can always hope)

Sorry I didn't make the last 5SK instructional school.  I was really bummed, but had to fly 6,776 miles for a meeting.

    • This is a totally reasonable approach.  Thought I'd throw in my method for this as another option. I hold the club sticking straight away from belt buckle or so, parallel to the ground, with my right hand.  Then, with my hand splayed out a bit (not crazy stretch or anything, but not fingers touching) and flat, I choose an angle to hold my left hand, place the handle in the "right" position, so resting on the middle section of my pointer finger, resting on or a touch towards the wrist from the bottom knuckle of the pinkie finger.  Then wrap the fingers onto the handle, then roll the hand towards the handle to a comfortable spot. For me this method gives a consistent grip, and I can control strong/weak just by the angle of my left hand before I place the handle.  If my left hand plane is perpendicular to the ground, I'll get a super strong grip, too strong.  With the left hand plane parallel to the ground, I'll get a weak grip, probably too weak, though for me I don't think it ends up as overly weak as the perpendicular way ends up over strong. If I have time tonight maybe I'll take some pics to make this clearer... I've always felt this way too, but I've often wondered if more knowledgable players or instructors also liked to see the full speed clips to get a feel for the dynamics of the swing.  Like, maybe at full speed you can get a feel for the dynamics and athletic motions a player is trying to use that a player is trying to use that wouldn't be obvious at slow speed.  Maybe that might help an instructor decide which things are a priority, or which path or feel or drill towards fixing something is most likely to succeed with that player? I suppose you're saying that's not true, at least not for you?  Like, you get all of that from the slo-mo?  Or that might be useful for an instructor of tour players but the shit we've all got wrong with our swings is so basic that it's not needed?  Something else?
    • I handed out a bunch of likes in this here thread. Ready golf or GTFO!! 
    • noted. and, thank you.  
    • ...and I can change from suit and tie to full-on golf attire in 10 minutes flat, while doing 50 mph!  
    • Like I said… your tempo is probably too slow if you can't get a 30-footer to the hole on slow greens. You're not hitting a lot of greens, so even two- and three-putting that often is not a great sign. You're not often putting from 40 feet away like some people who hit more greens. You're putting after a chip or a pitch shot more often, and those tend to be shorter putts. Start a Member Swing topic or post video of yourself hitting long putts to it if you have one already.
