Where Is Your Next Golf Trip Going to Be?

Recommended Posts

My dad told me a while back that this upcoming summer, we wouldn’t be taking our annual weeklong beach trip. That was upsetting, because it’s something that we look forward to every year. But then, this morning, I got a great idea. I texted my dad and asked him if we could take a golf trip this summer in place of our normal beach trip. Took a while because he was at work, but he eventually replied with a yes. I asked where we were gonna go, but he said we’ll work all that out later. They also have a trip to Italy planned for just him and our mom, so they have to plan that as well. I think we should either go to Myrtle Beach or Pinehurst. We’d book a hotel room for three or four nights, and then probably two or three rounds of golf. I’m guessing it’s gonna be me, my dad, my brother and my grandpa.

Dagolfer18 that’s beautiful. Played a lot with my brother but not once with dad or grandpa. Enjoy each moment, it’s a gift.

For us, it’s Kapalua, 4 days 3 rounds, I like to go Plantation, Bay, Plantation so that’s what we will do. Not real happy about the Plantation soft fairways, I may play forward  one set. But it’s Maui, I like my island better but Maui is a beautiful place.

Not a very far trip, but some coworkers have invited me along to a stay and play weekend at Crystal Springs Resort towards the end of April. We’re going to play Ballyowen and I don’t know/care what other course.

My next big adventure will be a trip to Spain and Portugal in September,  About 4 or 5 days on the Costa del Sol, followed by 4 days on the coast just north of Lisbon.  I know we'll get 6 rounds or so in, including at Praia D'El Rey and West Cliffs in Portugal.  Another guy is planning the golf, I don't know where in Spain we're playing.

Bucki... just a heads up for enjoying the scenery at Pebble Beach.  Choose to carry or roll your clubs.  Or, better yet, enlist the services of a caddie.  The bluffs and most scenic views (with a caddie you can wander to the best spots) are not accessible by power cart.  Power carts are restricted to cart paths which are essentially hidden away in the trees and a distance from the best views.

Keep us posted.  Have a great trip.

Yes. I was going to take a caddie. I would rather just carry or roll but I thought "what the hell", just walk around and check out the views. I played Pebble Beach about 20 years ago so I'm looking forward to seeing it. Hopefully I can play well but really not so much worried about that. This is the first time for the wife so she will eventually decide on a caddie or carry ourselves. We have a couple days of tickets for the Masters on Tuesday and Wednesday so we are gonna hang out there for a few days and then back home before our trip to Pebble. If anybody knows or any good wine vineyards in the area, please let me know. We are hoping to take a day and try to go to one or two if they aren't too far away.

Just got back from 4 days at Pinehurst.  We played Nos. 2, 3, 4, 8 and Tobacco Road.  And the cradle and thisle dhu of course.  What an amazing trip.  I was absolutely blown away by 2 and 4.  The wide fairways, huge waste areas, total absence of rough, etc., was like nothing else I've ever seen.  Tobacco Road was also one of the coolest courses I've ever seen.

Aloha, Happy New Year!

Oh for the optimism and ignorance of the new year, we made it to Vegas and played the Wynn on the day before they closed and kicked us out of the hotel. Then Hawaii got shut down with a 14 day quarantine if you travel even within the state to another island so Maui did not happen. But I am thrilled to report we have rebooked with Kapalua and will be there in a couple weeks. 
Aloha,

    • Kind of hard to ignore that it's the same f*** over and over again, no?  
    • Welcome to TST! Great to have someone else with your skills here! Nice intro too. Cheers!
    • Day 24/26 Feb 4: was a busy day with dad duties so i squeezed in 5 min of setup practice 
    • People are still going to take pictures on the bridge.
    • Thought I post this here. My game plan for working on my game this year.  Full Swing 1. Head up the Erie every few months for a lesson.  2. One range session a week, probably will be more because I like going to the range 🙂 3. 5-10 minutes a day of priority piece work. Short Game 1. Head up to Erie for a short game refresher. 2. One range session a month to keep it sharp, add in additional sessions if needed.  Putting 1. One range session a month working on aim point, lag putting, and putting inside 15-Ft.  Working Out 1. Keep up with my strength training.  2. Cut out alcohol. I just perform better in life when not drinking, even if it is only one or two beers. Maybe it is my age, but the next days become no-productive for me.  3. Continue to eat to lose weight.  Tournament Play Sign up for a few tournament 2023 NOGA Tournament Portal Event :: NOGA Tournament Schedule
