Going to Orlando in February and staying at Orange County National.  I've played the courses there several times, but haven't stayed there for a golf trip.  Flights to Orlando right now are ridiculously cheap, $75 dollars RT from Dulles.

I managed to get to Coeur D'Alene in July, played The Wynn in October and PGA West Stadium over Thanksgiving. I had an epic lineup of trips lined up to Pinehurst, Sand Valley and Bandon lined up for 2020 but we know what happened there. However, I do have Pinehurst and Bandon back on the docket for 2021 so we'll see if that holds. Its been a long time coming.

I need to play OR golf in general. With Bandon and a ton of courses around Bend, I really need to make a trip out there.

My yearly trip to Palm Springs in January is on hold right now, due to Covid concerns and California policies.  We may go later, if the situation improves.  After that, the next trip is likely to be to Wisconsin in June (or is it July?), to Sand Valley.

My January group to visit there is also postponed, but many if not all Palm Springs area golf courses are open.  Food and beverage isn't doing very good though, mostly outdoor sitting or closed.  However, three of us will be over there this weekend.

Yes, I had no issue in Palm Springs over Thanksgiving with tee times and such, I even walked on one course in the afternoon (though it was actually Thanksgiving Day). All dining was outside but I know that might have changed last week.

My next golf excursion won't be until the golf course restaurants, lodging and bars are open again.  And I don't have to wear this mask.  July?  Everyone please get vaccinated.

Understood, though I was traveling alone so it was easy to keep my distance. While the dining thing is a bit of a hassle the temperature for being outside was perfect. Also, the Monte Cristo at The Classic Club was outstanding. 🙂

I was thinking Pebble Beach again or Torrey Pines and staying at the lodge.  The heck with the Monte Cristo... I'm going for the Lagavulin after 18 holes.

We've always had good food at the courses, Classic Club is right up there, Desert Willow has good food, we even stayed for dinner at Rams Hill.

What is (was) your "in" to Cypress?

The course I belong to is highly ranked and can usually get us on most places.  Cypress is stubborn, you must play with a member.  No amount of reciprocal discussion worked where it usually does.  So my in did not work.

    • I would like to understand this rule. Rule 19.2(a) says that player is entitled to stroke and distance, even if original ball not found and identified. But relief under 19.2(b) an (c) says that ball must be identified to obtain reference point. I thought that’s why Faldo had to take stroke and distance in the 1992 US Open; everyone knew ball was in an identified tree but he could not identify the original ball. So in Reed’s case, how is that he did not have to “positively identify” his ball?  
    • Right now I don't bag a 3 wood. I'd happily add a G430 3 wood because I am pretty sure I could reliably launch it.
