Tentative Dates and Location

September 9-12, 2015 (play on the 10-12 with a special event on the 9th) in Phoenix, AZ.


To Apply…

  • Post in this thread.
  • State your case.
  • Remain (or become) an active member of the site.
  • Have the ability to take a few days off work in early September.
  • Have a single digit handicap index (the lower the better).

This edition of the Newport is as much about having a group of guys play some golf with people they enjoy. That doesn't mean everyone has to agree on everything, but chemistry is important. If we're going to take a chunk of our time to travel away from our families and hang out with some other guys, we want it to be a great experience.

  • Find a host course to have us out there for three days.
  • Play true Ryder Cup style matches: four balls, foursomes, and singles.
  • West coast the first time around, east coast the second time around, etc. The dividing line is roughly the Mississippi.

Some of these names may be long gone, but become active here again, get your HC in form, and come play some golf!

Thanks for the tag, Mike! The event sounds awesome - I'd love to participate (work and family calendars permitting), so you can include me in the list for consideration. As far as stating my golf case goes, that's gonna be tough. According my index, I've hovered between a 7.4 - 9.5 over the last couple of years, but for some reason @Golfingdad manages to beat my brains in every time we play a round together!

I'll just say that I try my best to be good company, even when I'm not playing well, and leave it at that.

LOL ... but now we'll be teammates!! :beer: And all of the East Coast guys are going to be so busy whining about the heat that beating them will be a cinch. :-P

Not sure. I haven't been to the south east yet to experience that dry heat. At least your not getting 95 degrees with a dew point of 75! :surrender: that you can get in Ohio.

If there is any room on the team I might be interested, of course if the team would be interested in having me on it. I would like to be considered for a spot due to me playing golf sometimes and trying my best at it and always giving 110% for my wolfpack.

Added to the first post.

I'm going to a conference in VA Beach from the 13-17. Not sure I can swing it, supposed to play Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club on Sunday and The Signature at West Neck on Monday.

There's room and would be great to have you on the team.

This song should be the theme song of this thread or even the cup.

My vote goes to: STANDING IN THE HALL OF FAME AND THE WORLD'S GONNA KNOW YOUR NAME.
