Newbie here at TST - headed to Montgomery, AL for a few weeks in Jan/Feb.   I'm planning to play 6-8 rounds - any "can't miss" recommendations other than the RTJ courses?

Not sure how the weather will cooperate but we played there early December last year and it was great. Ok from my small experience I really enjoyed The Judge and The Senator there at Capitol Hill, not a fan of the Marriott there. There’s a 3rd Course there, all part of the RTJ trail. Then head an hour east, or was it 2? And visit Opelika where there is nicer Marriott plus 2 beautiful courses The Lakes and the other one, plus there’s a fun par there, best par 3 I’vebeen to. 

Welcome to the TST, have a great trip.

Welcome to the TST, have a great trip. 

Thanks - and as long as it gets to the high 40's or above, I'm willing to go play golf.  So - hopefully it'll be a mild winter up there.

Going to Destin in 3 weeks.  Not sure what courses I’ll play yet. Visiting my uncle who is living there for the winter for the first time.   But really looking forward to just playing especially with all the winter weather here.

I have traveled quite a bit to play this game. Have been blessed. I am off to an area have never been in early May. SW England. The primary draw being to get to St Enodoc.  I have a group of about 25 guys I normally reach out to and ask to come along when I set up trips....Only one guy had interest in joining. So the itinerary is Heathrow....drive to Burnham& Berrows. Then play Saunton East and West, Royal North Devon, Trevose, Perranporth and last St Enodoc….I traveled to Wales a few years ago and this area is around the bend from there...and as I am retired and so is my bud tagging along....I thought WTFN....so we shall play Pennard and Royal Porthcawl and then the cherry on top is we finish at Sunningdale with Old and New. 10 days 11 rounds rental van and hotels for under $2500...Air $600...For those who go to Ireland....Wales is way cheaper and the Welsh are the friendliest blokes you will ever meet.

I've been thinking of playing Glen Abbey sometime this summer. It seems like it may be on the verge of being developed over, and I've been meaning to take in a Blue Jays game in Toronto.

Less than 4 weeks till I head down to Orlando.  This will be our 4th year in a row heading down there. With this polar vortex about to hit the Midwest I can’t wait to get out of here.

I was in Palm Springs a couple of weeks ago, but have nothing planned until Thanksgiving week in Pinehurst.  There's a small chance I'll get to Las Vegas in October, but that's largely out of my hands.

I'm working on a connection to play Pine Valley.  It's nothing solid yet, but I'm giving it all I've got.

Played it once. I tell guys...Drive up to the entrance area...The drive to the place is one way in/out. You think you are lost...At end of a sketchy area is a 90 degree turn over rail tracks into PV...I tell guys park your car near the end there. Act like you are changing a tire. First person driving in that stops and asks....Say You wanna play...better than 50/50 they will say yes.

Travelling to Scotland (from Norway) with 5 friends and are playing seven rounds of golf in four days. 

Playing four courses north of Aberdeen:
* Murcar
* Cruden Bay - probably the best course in Scotland I've played. Played this last year.
* Peterhead
* Fraserburgh

eI will be in North Padre Island, TX in May for a week.  Plans are to fish twice and play golf 3 times...Not sure yet what courses are available in the Corpus Christi area, but I am sure I will be able to find some...

Catch a Corpus Christi Hooks game.  AA of the Houston Astros.  Great Stadium, good food, and affordable.  Oso Beach and Palmilla Beach are two options for golf.  CC has several courses, none I would consider great.

Well it’s that all too familiar process; remove all metal heads, wash all golf apparel, get a fresh dozen from the local golf shop. Tomorrow it’s a flight to Lanai, Tuesday I’ll take the boat to Maui. The island’s top 2 courses, Plantation and Wailea Gold are out and aerated. So it’s the Bay, then Wailea Emerald then on day 6 either emerald again or blue, maybe Silversword. Six days, six games. 

Maui hotels now seem busy, I almost brought my tent to camp. 

Aloha,

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.

I guess Cancun. My Daughter just finished spending a week there. After a conversation with her Mom, my wife has decided we should go there again. Not sure when, as she will set it all up on her nickle...lol

A whole bunch of Tour Edge golf stuff...... :beer:

Heading to Reno the last week of June.  There should be at least a couple dozen of us.  Playing Wolf Run, Wildcreek, Arrowcreek and Lakeridge.  I've never been, so if anyone has any info, I am all ears!

    • There is no requirement for a marker to be a fellow competitor. They are simply a "person responsible for entering a player’s score on the player’s scorecard and for certifying that scorecard."
    • 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.
