Not sure myself. I'm not planning to go to Orlando until maybe next December at the earliest. My cousin just got engaged so a trip to CA is in my future as well.

Maybe I'll go to the next Mid-Atlantic outing if @DaveP043 promises the weather will be better than it was last year. Or the year before :-P

More of a trip to visit family but we shipstixed (is that a word?) our clubs to Alabama and Thanksgiving week we’ll play a few, 4 maybe 5 of nearby RTJ courses.

Played yesterday with my older clubs, doods I miss my clubs. 

On the way home from our recent golf trip we started talking about the Monterey Peninsula. So I could see an early 2018 hop over the pond. 

In the worse case we’ll take a few days on Maui and hit Kapalua, and Wailea. 

Have fun!

I believe I may have been permanently disqualified from planning any more TST outings in Virginia, based on the weather I've arranged.

I'm heading out in 30 minutes to my next golf trip...due south.  Somewhere in the Pinehurst region.  :-)

Sounds like fun. I'll be leaving in less than an hour to head that way also. 

Maybe we could hook up for some golf. ;-)

My next big trip won't be until 2019. It's not a "golf" trip tho, we'll be heading back to Europe for my wife's 50th bday but I will absolutely be playing golf. Right now I'm thinking either St. Andrews but if that fails, I'll play in Switzerland.

my get up and go musta got up and went..

Played 4 rounds in Myrtle Beach the middle of November. Got rained out for our final 5th round. Heading to Las Vegas in 2 weeks. Will also be in St. George, UT then down to Laughlin, NV for a few day. hopefully will get in four or more rounds. If all goes right in April or May will be in South Africa for a few weeks and will try again to get in 4 or more rounds.

Kiva Dunes, Gulf Shores Alabama. Technically it’s a family vacation but all the guys golf so we will play Kiva and maybe one other course.

Hey Dave how was Palm Springs - where did you play and what are your recommendations?

We had a great time in Palm Springs, in spite of my wife and her broken foot.  We played the Golf Club at La Quinta (the old Trilogy course), Eagle Falls, PGA West Norman, Silverrock, Classic Club, and Desert Willow Mountain View.  Every one was in great shape, and every one was enjoyable.  My favorite is Classic Club, with Desert Willow and Eagle Falls pretty close behind.  The least favorite was La Quinta, and only because its completely surrounded by housing, otherwise its a good solid course.  The Norman Course was new to us this year, and I liked it better than I expected.  Lots of room in most places, but the bunkers were generally really deep and punishing, and the greens were pretty small.  It was a nice change from the freezing weather around Virginia.

    • @bkuehn1952Thanks for that response.  What is the value in 90% handicap.  I understand how it would lower the HCP of the best players, but wouldn't it harm the high handicappers?   Thanks.    
    • I love the grind. I learned to love it from Mr. O’Grady. We would show up at sunrise and leave at sunset every single day of a MORAD school. Wish he’d let me go to another one.   I do a 90 minute to 2 hour session everyday. 30 minutes mechanics. 30 minutes measured practice hitting to targets and measuring proximity… Then 30 - 60 minutes either on mechanics again or playing a simulated round.
    • Use official handicaps. Make everyone who plays sign up for a handicap. Using handicaps based on tournament play is better but it takes a long time for a player to have a reasonable number of scores. Yes, the new handicap system starts at three scores but I think the resulting number has low credibility. Also, it takes a bit of work to calculate the “C” handicap. If you have 40 players, make two flights. Make the split wherever it needs to be to get equal flights.  If there is a large spread in the high and low index in each flight, consider using a percentage of the handicap (90% is recommended). Your Club Champion should be the player with the lowest gross average over the season with a minimum number of events required (5?). You can also award “Net Player of the Year” to the member who wins the most gift certificates.
    • Been on the diet since April 2019. I take it to prevent cluster headaches, which I've suffered from since age 13. The keto diet somehow stops neurological issues like epilepsy and cluster headaches for some reason. They don't really know for sure how. I suspect it has something to do with an inflammation reduction, at least in regards to the cluster headaches. There are also some possible benefits for alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder as it's called now. The Ketogenic Diet May Play a Role in Treating Alcoholism This dietary intervention may help with detox and cravings. The diet's not for everybody though, agreed there. I think a lot of people do great on carbs. I however definitely don't unfortunately. Keto helps me a lot.
    • It is interesting that according to the poll, more members carry a 4 or 5 iron than a 9 iron. I suspect some responders may have misunderstood the question and listed their longest iron rather than all the irons they carry. Or maybe the info is spot on.
