Where Is Your Next Golf Trip Going to Be?

Recommended Posts

I have two trips upcoming:

New York State:  I will be attending a high school reunion in Rochester, NY.. then a couple of us are going to play four courses listed by Golfweek Magazine as the Best Courses You Can Play in NY (meaning you can get on them!).   We are playing Seneca Hickory Sticks in Lewiston, Conklin Players Club - just outside Binghamton, Leatherstocking - just outside Cooperstown, and Saratoga National.

Nebraska:  I will be playing courses that Golfweek Magazine LIsts as the Best Courses You Can Play .... Quarry Oaks, Awarii Dunes, Bayside (which was on the list until 2017), Wild Horse, The Prairie Club - Pines and Dunes courses, and Tatanka.  Since I am already there I have added Dismal River - Red and White Courses (a private club).  Also, I plan to plan Plainview, which is the site of the 2019 Nebraska 9 Hole Course Championship (there are 90 nine hole courses in Nebraska) and Platteview (which is private with a friend who is a member).

Really excited about these two trips AND planning for 1 or 2 in the Fall.

I'm planning a trip to Pinehurst.  After hours of research, I think I've got the golf and accommodations lined up.  Now the only thing left is the formats for the rounds, money games, the food, and the extra curriculars.

Have fun, that's one of my favorite places, I get there once or twice every year..  Let me know if you need restaurant recommendations.

I played both Bayside and Wild Horse on a guys golf trip several years back.  As I recall, Bayside was two very different nines, but a lot of fun and the staff were a hoot.  We sat in the clubhouse after the round drinking way too much tequila with them.

Wild Horse is magical, you will not be disappointed.  Definitely in my personal top 5 courses all time.   It's literally in the middle of nowhere, funded by the local farming community and cut in amongst the corn fields.  We were first off that day and I remember the beauty of the steam rising off the fairways ... it was a perfect morning.  The greens are amazing, and at the time the fastest and most true rolling that I had ever played.  Have fun!

Thanks, you have given me a few good ones so far.  I like the looks of Sly Fox and have added that to the itinerary.  One question you might be able to answer for me; How do replays work at the Pinehurst Resort courses?  We are playing #5 and #8, have the Cradle booked and have some time set aside already for Thistle Dhu, but we will have an afternoon off.  I can't find any information on replays.

I'm not sure about replay policies anywhere, I've never tried to play a second round in a day.  I suggest you give them a call directly.  And if it looks kind of empty after you've finished a round, I'd ask again, they may be more flexible.

The Sly Fox is really good.  Another nice pub, a little closer, a little newer, is the CharBar7.  The Pinehurst Brewing is another new place with really good food.

Just got back from my golf trip to New York State....   I will post some thoughts on the trip over the weekend.... I started collecting logoed golf balls from courses I play.  The idea is that some day I will create a Christmas Tree of golf balls.  I saw this idea in the pro shop of a club I used to be a member of in Citrus County in Florida.   On this trip I collected balls from the four courses I played.

Nice, look forward to hearing your thoughts on the courses. We are 3 weeks out from a CNY trip. We will hang with family mostly but will get away for a few games. We have 2 rounds secured at Turning Stone, and will play the rest as opportunities are presented. We will be in Skaneateles so Rochester courses would be a stretch but not that far away. It’s a haul but I think we will bring our clubs.

Aloha,

In Europe and if to be more specific in Greece. My friends who has a real estate in Athens invited me to come and have a nice week vacation. There is a really nice Glyfada Golf Club which is next to the beach and about 15-20 minutes drive from Athens itself. When I come back I will post a report about this destination.

I'm getting a rare summertime visit to Pinehurst, heading down for an extended weekend over Labor Day.  My buddy just qualified to play the USGA Senior Amateur in Durham the weekend before, so he and his wife will join us.  She's a good player too, we'll have a good time.

Actually, we are going to Gatlinburg for my sister's wedding the 30th-1st and I may see if I can't sneak my clubs along to maybe play one or two days if anyone knows of courses in that area that I should play.

We are on an extended road trip up in norcal right now. Didn't want to deal with the southwest summer heat.

We are at my cousin's home just off the coast highway. That highway goes really, really close to Bandon Dunes.....lol I am looking for 5, or 6 day layover there.

After Bandon, it's where ever my much better half wants to go. Most likely farther north.

If we run into a few golf courses along the way, then so be it.  A man has do, what he has to do.

Patch... no matter what, make sure to play Pacific Dunes.  Then settle in with your wife for a single malt scotch and some haggis in McKee's Pub, right there on the property, next to the lodge.

I am very familiar with Bandon's golf complex. I think this is my 8th trip there.

My wife is in charge of food and beverages, and knows all the hot spots for our taste buds. 

 I will be playing what ever courses I can get on, including that par 3 course. Hoping for some decent weather.

Going to Carlsbad CA over labor day weekend to visit my best friend who moved there last year.  Will be playing some golf.  He's planning on joining Shawdowridge Golf Course in the next couple of weeks, so we will likely be playing there, plus I'm a clubcorp member as well.  You can't beat cart fee only golf.

Will probably play one of the other club corp courses in the area as well.  Either Morgan Run, which I've played before or Bernado Heights CC.

We will likely only have two players, if any SD TST'ers want to meet up.  I'm sure we'll hit Stone and mission Brewery as well.  Will be there August 29-September 3rd.  Not sure yet which days we'll play golf but probably most of them.

    • Lol. No worries. Stay around! We may all learn something valuable. And hey, I’ve embarrassed myself spectacularly worse than you on this site many times….cheers!
    • Well, at this point I'm inclined to bow out. I think I've embarrassed myself enough for one day  and, worse, this is starting to make me think about what I'm doing to get where I'm getting, which is one thing of which I'm trying hard to rid myself. Good luck with your goals!
    • Well, today was interesting.  Started on back nine with Par 3 hole.  It was a rough start putting 2 consecutive tee shots in the crap.  I should have gone to the drop zone after the first mishit but NOOOOO, I wanted to hit a great tee shot but instead I hit the 2nd just as bad as the first.  Moved forward to the drop zone and ended with a 7 on a par 3.  Then a thunder storm came in and we left the course for shelter after the 2nd hole to wait it out.  That gave me a good 30 minutes before they gave the "All Clear" to head back out and started to hit a little better (only a little).  On #14 I hit my drive left through some trees and tried a punch shot to get back to the fairway but hit a tree and got 39 yards of NEGATIVE Yardage.  Good news is I followed that up with a Par on #15 and a birdie on #18 with a great approach shot and a 9 foot birdie putt.  Overall shot 49 which is better then yesterday on came holes at same course.  
    • So now we realize you’re lifting. No big deal. My point is if I do passively what you think you’re doing, my lead arm ends up well below my shoulder line and horribly bent.    In order for me to ‘change the picture’ I have to feel as though I’m lifting my arms straight into the air from the golf ball while I rotate back. I’ve created some nice top positions doing this. But that feeling has me so discombobulated that swinging down is just damn near impossible for me.
    • Not sure how that joke comment is wrapping myself in victimhood but you are the antitrust law expert so I will defer to your authority.
