I'm resuming my 50 state capital road trip on June 10, 2018. I'm planning to play in 25 capitals plus Washington DC. The list has the courses I plan to play and the order, weather permitting. 

I’m headed to Bandon Dunes next week. Playing the dunes, pacific dunes and sheep ranch. I’m excited! Weather looks favorable, fingers crossed!

Going to the Pinehurst area at the end of March. Playing Mid-South, Pine Needles, and Tobacco Road.

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.

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.

I had to postpone my trip in the spring to Pebble Beach. Going to try again in April. Hopefully. 😟

Planning on going to the Monterrey Peninsula.  Cypress is proving to be a problem.  

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.

    • Day 506 - May 17, 2021 Hit balls (including one ball into the parking lot) from the back of the range at Whispering Woods today. Didn't quite have the same feel as the other day, but… it's close.
    • So I was helping my daughter out at the back of the range today. I had chipped literally two 8-irons, then wanted her to take a break, so I said “watch this in case I duck hook it onto the practice green” (short game). I’m on the back of the range, hitting toward the mats that are 300 yards away. I hit it, a high seed, and… it hits by the mats (between two people, about six mats apart) and bounces into the parking lot. It’s a gravel parking lot, the ball didn’t go very far. But, ooooookay. So, that’s enough of that. My daughter was both in awe and frightened that I may have dented someone’s Honda. A student takes his Mevo out on the course to measure shots hit out there, and he said he measured my first tee shot a few days ago at 175 ball speed and 117.x (don’t remember the decimal value) clubhead speed. He bought a set of SuperSpeed sticks off eBay later that day. Wheeeeee.
    • I played as a 2 man in a pretty big local tournament that gets top flight guys. The course was set up long and tough, but weather was good. 1st day =X 2nd day =79 I hit the ball really well both days and would’ve shot in the 70s both days if I didn’t take an X on a hole. I didn’t know where to hit the tee shot, so my captain gave me a starting line hit the ball 15 yards right of the start line- quality drive, captain says that’s not bad, you can get home from there ball was lost on an overgrown hillside and the team was in good shape, so I sat in the cart instead of holding up play i had 50 yards of open fairway to the left thanks captain  Putting was bad but, even with a 5 putt (4 of them were within 3.5 feet and I tried on them all) - I scored pretty well and made a handful of birdies on a tough setup.
    • My biggest drop in handicap over two years was going from a 9.9 to a 3.9. How? I stayed out of the shit.... I called the zoo... I finally cured my hook (It came back again, then I was able to cure it again like literally today.)    @iacas will be the first one to tell you or you can tell for yourself, in My Swing Thread... my swing looks like an unfolding lawn chair. (I’ve taken literally four lessons in my 24 years playing golf). I can understand complex, like the number A# that Erik has on this site. I’m trying to learn to play golf with mostly a three-quarter swing. It is however a process. In the meantime, I aim away from the shit (darker zones), try to get on or around the green, and don’t do anything stupid when I do get out of position... basically “miss” straight... 
    • Yep. Jack was never so lucky to be gifted a major. Those club pros gave him their best every tournament in the early years!
