TST Mid-Atlantic Outing

126 posts in this topic

Why do the guys in SoCal, with their 80* Februaries get all the fun? I know we've got some members from the Mid-Atlantic region, how about an April (or late March) outing?  The snow should melt by then, right?

How about it @inthehole @bjwestner @hack1981 @River Hill @Seahawk @CallawayJ @Mr3Wiggle @jsgolfer @RH31 @kregan @terp2007 @cliffj @davedove ?

I think there are a bunch of members in the DC Metro Area.  Maybe someplace like Lake Presidential, Raspberry Falls, or something closer to PA folk, such as Glen Mills, Gettysburg?  We'll have to see who is interested and where everybody is before we pick a location.

I'll likely have to take a trip or two to Delaware before early June, so I'll keep this thread in mind. If it's close enough I might be able to make it.

Count me in. I play mostly the VA muni courses west of DC, but I'd be up for something more adventurous.

Based on the early responses, perhaps some of these courses would be most convenient:1757 (Dulles); Westfields (Clifton/Centerville); Raspberry Falls (Leesburg)

Some other possibilities:

North: Bulle Rock (Harve de Grace); Maryland National (Middleton); Whiskey Creek (Ijamsville); P.B. Dye (Ijamsville); Blue Mash (Olney); Glen Mills (PA/DE border, near Wilmington);

East: Lake Presidential (Upper Marlboro)

South:  ?? I don't really know that area

This is just based on the responses thus far.  If anyone is interested in playing but finds these courses inconvenient, don't shy away.

Some possible dates:

April 5-6

April 12-13

April 26-27

May 10-11

May 17-18

Little Bennett in Clarksburg, MD is a favorite of mine much better than PB Dye.

Whiskey Creek is really good as well.  Worthington Manor is the same exit as Whiskey Creek, and just as good,  just the opposite direction and is actually closer to 270.

Glen Mills (PA/DE border, near Wilmington); and Bulle Rock are probably a little out of my travel distance to play.

Timbers at Troy in Elkridge MD is pretty good too.  Waverly Woods in Ellicott City, MD used to be nice, haven't played there in 10 years.

Laurel Hill, Lorton, VA is really nice, they just held the 2013 Public Links Championship there

I like Little Bennett as well.  I've heard great things about Worthington Mannor and Laurel Hill and would love to try them both.

April12-19 is our county school spring break, so those weekends don't work for me. All others work at this point.  [quote name="jsgolfer" url="/t/72657/tst-mid-atlantic-outing#post_954403"]Little Bennett in Clarksburg, MD is a favorite of mine much better than PB Dye.   Whiskey Creek is really good as well.  Worthington Manor is the same exit as Whiskey Creek, and just as good,  just the opposite direction and is actually closer to 270.

I've only heard of Laurel Hill, because it's maintained by the Fairfax County Park Authority, who maintains the Twin Lakes complex where I often play. People at Twin Lakes often speak with high regard of the course. Here's their link: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/golf/lhgc/

Okay...I'll keep my eye on this one because I am from that area. I am thinking DC metro as well, or within an hour (Tee Hee, like you get anywhere around there in an hour)  God knows I can use a break from Ohio! Last course I played around there was Bull Run GC, Haymarket, VA, which is a sister course to Raspberry falls in Leesburg, VA.

Bull Run is nice. Old Hickory down in Woodbridge is nice too, and it's also a sister course to Raspberry and Bull Run. Lake Presdential is also on the Raspberry trail.

If it's on a weekend, I'd consider driving down from Albany NY to play. My really good friend lives in northern VA so might be able to stay with him and see if he wanted to play.

You might also want to check out the New England one. It depends on where we play, but it'll probably be much closer. http://thesandtrap.com/t/72404/tst-new-england-spring-summer-2014-outing/0_30

I think it's a "group" thread. All you have to do is join the group then you can post in there. :)

    • I didn't think this was appropriate to put in the Contest thread, but I predicted that the Ryder Cup will end in eerily similar fashion to the 2015 Newport Cup, with the eldest Euro chipping in on the 18th, to win his match and halve the overall Cup.
    • After finally clearing my head from that 90 minutes of assault on the grey matter, I've come to the conclusion that trying to do the mental gymnastics necessary to make sense out of what Clinton and Trump were saying made me dumber for about 24 hours. Especially Trump. I still can't believe one party actually nominated him. IMO he's a buffoon. A school yard bully who got thoroughly beat up, despite scoring a few points early on. But scoring points isn't what it's about to me. It's making sense and hearing policy and whether or not said policies violate the Constitution.  In my opinion, both candidates need to read that document. In my opinion, our law makers need to read that document because they're writing laws that tread on the edges of violating our rights. Take the Comprehensive Crime Bill of 1984 otherwise known as the War on Drugs for example. It created a bunch of forfeiture laws where the government can seize property if they have reasonable cause that a drug related crime has been or is being committed. This has lead to people who are transporting large sums of cash having that seized by law enforcement. Buying airline tickets with cash is a red flag to law enforcement. They want a credit record of your purchase. If you are pulled over for speeding, an officer may ask you how much cash you are carrying. Of course you don't have to answer him, but most people think that they have nothing to hide so they tell the officer. If the amount is over a couple hundred, the officer may have a K-9 unit come sniff the car and even if they find nothing, they may confiscate the cash saying that you were going to buy drugs with it at your destination. You can't prove that you weren't. They let you go. It's your property that got charged with the crime. 4th Amendment violation? Where's the due process? No Fly No Buy? Or Terrorist Watch list no buy? These lists are secret lists. Both candidates endorse this practice to infringe on the 2nd Amendment. Where's the due process? It's some secret process. You don't know you're on it, and once you're refused a purchase you get to petition the government to appear before the Senate to clear your name. Good luck with that. This is a violation of the 5th and 6th amendments. Holt should have gone after both Clinton and Trump on this. People told me that "Trump would protect our rights here. He has the backing of the NRA." I knew he would sell us out because he's a moron. I was right. He was agreeing with Clinton. Stop and frisk? Under Terry, law enforcement has to have reasonable suspicion that you're about to commit a crime.This means something like casing an establishment. Walking in a group doesn't give reasonable suspicion. That's a violation of the 4th amendment.  In the end I felt dumber after watching this. I did stupid things for the next 24 hours. It gave me a headache. I think I'll skip the next one. Both candidates are disasters. It's just that one is an intelligent disaster and the other is a moron. And Trump cannot go more than 10 minutes without putting his foot in his mouth. He doesn't get to say something where it's recorded on video and then say he never said it. That doesn't wash. He needs fat people to vote for him. He needs women to vote for him and instead of apologizing he insulted us again. He needed Afro-Americans and he brought up stop and frisk - racial profiling? He doesn't think it would be applied without racial profiling? Are you kidding me? That's all I have to say. I have to go out and stock up on ammo before there's a shortage. I'm not expecting a war. It's target plinking ammo, but you know how people get.  
    • For me this is something I continue to work on.  For me what works is making as big of a turn on my backswing as I can and thinking "slam my hands down" at the start of my downswing.  Of course all that is to keep me from going over the top.
    • Team Europe retains the Ryder Cup by tying the matches, 14-14. Rory McIlroy will lead Europe with 3.5 points (3-1-1). Lee Westwood will clinch the overall tie for the Ryder Cup for Europe by winning his match on the 18th hole.
