Wait a minute, FL, AZ, TX, LA could do the same thing.

The most important thing is, where?

I would vote for Hidden Valley in Norco, CA.

I can't make any commitment at this time. New baby will be here. Plus I have a trip to Taiwan pending in Jan before the Chinese New Year. The first quarter of 2014 is going to be real crazy schedule wise.

I have no idea what my available dates are yet.  We have guests in town from New York sometime in the middle of January, and I have a couple of tournaments I hope to play in January and February.  Unfortunately, I don't yet have the exact dates for any of those.

---------------------------------------

I know that most of us are from OC/LA but we still haven't made a date in San Diego yet.  I wonder if people would be interested in something in North San Diego County?  Here are a few to perhaps check out ...

The Vineyard ... http://www.vineyardatescondido.com/

The Crossings ... http://www.thecrossingsatcarlsbad.com/carlsbad.asp?id=182&page;=3854

Rancho Bernardo Inn ... http://www.jcgolf.com/course/rancho-bernardo/

Arrowood ... http://www.arrowoodgolf.com/about/

And there are a jillion more. ;)  I realize that the Riverside/Corona/Norco area is probably the most central for everybody, but just thought I'd throw a few SD ideas out there too.

You could play Mike's course. Crossings was okay.

Just looked at Drew's link. Crossings, would be nice, too. I'm up for it, but for those of us in the LA area, we should make it later in the morning so we don't all have to book hotels. I might overnight it just for a mini family vacation.

1 year reunion at Mile Square! :)

Interesting thought. Btw, how did you get away with adding more than 10 points to your HC, you sandbagger? :-P

For me, January is a pretty good month. No vacations or work trips planned currently and unlike Beachcomber, my wife isn't due until March. I don't have my personal schedule set that far down the road, but I am guessing that most weekends and locations would work fine for me.

Depending on how many folks we get, I think mixing up the format is a great idea. A Ryder Cup style format (two teams) where we send out group in competing 4-ball matches would be a lot of fun, but I am game for anything.

January sounds good to me. I'd be for mixing up the format as well if for no other reason than to try something new. It might be kind of cool to try do some match play or something like that.

I'd be for doing it in the SD area as well. There are a lot of nice courses out there and we haven't been out that way yet. Coming out my way (Palm Springs area) could also be an option. The weather is perfect out here although it could be a little on the pricey side. If that's something you'd guys would like to look into, however, let me know and I'll call some of the courses up.

@mvmac

Since Erik brought it up, is this something that would be possible? What kind of cost would we be looking at?

Sure, I'll give the new mayor a call ;-)

No idea what Erik is talking about lol  I could look into it, I think my guest fees are about $70 but not sure if I could bring out four groups on the weekend, Sunday afternoon would be probably be the best time, no chance on Sat or Sun morning.  They usually schedule "outside" tournament event on Monday.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
