It looks like we were there about the same time, I played Indian Canyons south course twice...WOW

Gotta pass this year. The extended family has planned a trip to the east coast where our people are from. So thankful the canadian airlines make it so expensive to fly in canada.

Just bumping this thread.  My buddy Tom just sent me an email telling me to be sure to invite the TST guys, if anyone wants to fill out our group.  Like I mentioned, we plan to arrive on Saturday, 1/14, and play each day from Sunday to the following Saturday.  We have six players, so if one or two of you guys want to join us, you'll be more than welcome.  Tom is planning to make the tee times between 9 and 10 AM, and I'll post real tee times and courses after he's made those plans.

OK, Tom has made the plans for our visit to Palm Springs.  We have six player at this time, so we can take one or two of you each day.  We're playing:

Sunday :         Either Terra Lago or the Golf Club at La Quinta, tee times between 9:00 & 9:30, the rate is $99.00  (He has to wait another 10 days before he can reserve the times.)

Monday:         Silver Rock, tee times are 9:15 and 9:23 , the rate is $170.00

Tuesday:        Classic Golf Club, tee times are 9:10 and 9:20, the rate is $145 (includes $15 for F&B)

Wednesday:   Eagle Falls, tee times are 9:16 and 9:24, the rate is $95

Thursday:       Desert Willow, tee times are 9:15 and 9:24, the rate is $99.00

Friday :           Classic Golf Club, tee times are 8:30 and 8:40, the rate is $145 (includes $15 for F&B)

For @mvmac, @Golfingdad, @tristanhilton85, @Big C,please take a look at your schedules and let me know if and when you'd like to join us.  Tom would like to let the golf courses know if our numbers increase from the six already reserved.  

We're looking forward to leaving the Mid-Atlanttic's cool and dreary weather for the California sunshine!

Awesome, and thanks again @DaveP043 for the invitation.

Unless the wife reminds me of prior obligations I've forgotten about, I would like to join you guys on Monday (1/16) at Silver Rock.  I have always wanted to play there and missed joining you guys last year on that course.

Dave thanks for the tag! I might have missed the thread otherwise. I would recommend that you check out this link. A golf deals website called Under Par is offering Silver Rock for $90. @Golfingdad & I have used Under Par a couple times and this appears to overlap perfectly with your schedule. It just has to be used before January with no restrictions or blackouts. And heck, if you are in the mood to play 27 (or maybe 36?), it includes a free replay. If not, you still save 80 bucks. 

My schedule is crazy that week. I have a work trip from January 11-13. Then a men's club tournament on Sunday the 15th. And then I'm traveling again to the Midwest from the 17-20. But........ I do have a one day gap on the 16th for Silverrock. Hmmm..... I'll keep you posted.

If someone else wants to jump in on Silver Rock that Monday, I would encourage them to do so - it's a fabulous course. But if that last spot is still open by next week and I can make the family scheduling work, then I will try to do so.

I'm definitely in for one of those days; I just need to check a couple of things when I get to work today and I'll let you know which one.

Really looking forward to this. Last year was awesome!

Yup, I did forget about something - we'll be at Legoland on the 15th and 16th.  So I'll have to figure out my best alternative option.  Probably either just making it a 4 day weekend and coming out Tuesday or going back to back on the three day weekends and coming Friday.  I'll try and firm up as quick as I can and let you know.

Thanks, Mike, you're in, and I'm looking forward to it.  @Golfingdad, @tristanhilton85, @Big C, please let me know when you make a decision.  The good deal that @Big C mentioned can only be reserved with 7 days advance purchase, so I'm sure they're intended to fill open spots in groups like ours.  

With the dreary cool weather here, I'm already ready to go!

Luckily you're not here now then because we've got the same dreary cool wet weather.

I was debating between Tuesday and Friday and since it's the same course either way, and Friday would mean I'd also get to see Mike, then assuming you have another spot open, sign me up for Classic Club on Friday the 20th.

I just heard back from Tom. @mvmac is good for Thursday and Friday, and @Golfingdad is good for Friday.  It'll be fun to see you guys again.

Just curious, do you know if it's Mountain View or Firecliff?

Looking forward to it!  Bummed because we're getting a bunch of rain here (coastal, not in the desert) this week, so I might not have a chance to play before next Friday.  Shoulda gone out yesterday. :(

I haven't played since Thanksgiving weekend.  However, I'll get to play 5 days in a row before I see you on Friday.

Yeah this Saturday was the first day I got to practice in a while. I'm going to be rusty as well!

I'm sorry, but sandbagging in January will NOT affect your handicaps when the Newport Cup rolls around in October!

I'll just play "practice rounds" between next Friday and October. :-P

    • I’ll recount this round more specifically, then answer your question.  1) hit normal, first tee shot, duck hookish drive left of fw. Hit a low, below the trees, 95yd 52 wedge to inside 10ft. Missed the putt.  2) cut drive, still missed ever so slightly left of fw. Put approach to 3ft, made birdie.  3) 2iron to mid fairway, had 130 in and hit pw barely over the green (within 20ft of pin). Hit a putt from the rough as it was straight downhill, made par.  4) par 3, hit front edge of green after a high toe chunk of a tee shot. Couldn’t get up and down. 5) par 5, perfect drive, left with 200 or so in. Missed green to the right but pin high, chipped to a tap in.  6) par 3 missed green short right, chip hit the pin and stopped close.  7) par 5, good drive, had 5iron in, missed slightly right but carried the bunker. 2 putt birdie 8- Good drive, missed fairway, but it’s a short hole and ended short right of green. 65yd pitch to inside 10ft. made the putt.  9) pounded the drive, approach from 45yds ended up inches from the hole. Birdie 10) missed drive right into the trees, punched out, had 105yds in and put my 56 to 4ft and made par. Key par there.  11) par 5, drive missed right of fw but still fine, hit 4iron to inside 20ft, 2 putt birdie.  12) par 3, thought i hit it perfect, bit landed mid green and spun to front. Had a tough uphill putt from 40ft or so. Made par.  13) par 5, good drive but slightly left of fw, hit 2iron to pin high right of green. Chip to 5ft, made the slider for birdie.  14) 315yd par 4, drove green (must have had a lucky kick, I’ve been plugging in front approach all winter), ended within 15ft and made the putt for eagle. 15) cut 2iron down left side fw, tucked right pin so did my normal draw off it to middle of green. Had 25-30ft, made par.  16) par 3, 150yds, tucked right pin again, hit 15-20ft away, made par.  17) hit hooky 2iron, but ok in left rough, had 100yds in slightly downwind, hit my 60 8ft past, made birdie.  18) hit 2iron hard down right but hit trees and kicked, luckily, slightly left back into fairway, had 130yds in and had my 52 to 4ft, made birdie.  That is 7/14 fairways and 14/18 greens. Basically the driver was hit well, and for the most part, not in trouble and leaving short wedges in. From there I hit wedges really well, including many of the chip/pitch distances. When my game is around even par, there’s definitely no putts made and approaches aren’t as close. Mid to upper 60s means better approaches and some putts. Low 60s is good approaches with more putts made. Certainly making birdies on the 4 par 5s is important as well as making virtually no bogies.  I’ve said it before about my game but when my driver is doing good, I’m doing good. If it’s not, I’m not. My full/partial wedges are the best part of my game. Pitching/chipping is getting a ton better. Putting is a lot better but variable depending on conditions. The game just happens to be aligning more the last few months. 
    • Day 50 - Used MirrorVision to watch/film swings, focusing on my impact position.
    • 62 is cool as hell. Damn
    • Great playing! Curious when you say "good approaches" on like 1,2,17,18 that resulted in 3 birdies, what kinds of distances are you hitting for the approach shots and how far are you leaving for your birdie putts?  Maybe a better way to ask is during this great run of golf you've been playing obviously you've been doing a lot of things well, but is there a common theme among the really low rounds that you hadn't had prior to this stretch? Like has it been a case of stuffing everything to 5 feet, making a ton of long putts, not missing a fairway, etc.
