It was great to meet everyone that participated.   I had a great time even though I didn't play well.   The course was great, the new friends were great, the golf....

Now let's discuss the weather.  It was @Wally Fairway's job to give us good weather since it was his neck of the woods!   Just teasing Joe.  

Looking forward to another.     

I can now highly recommend that course.   Thanks Brian and Terry for putting this together.

Thanks to everyone for:

  • showing up in a good mood despite @Wally Fairway's less than excellent weather.
  • playing at a very acceptable pace
  • not asking me what I shot!

We will touch base again in mid-June to discuss possibly doing this again.

Thanks to @bkuehn1952 for putting this together (and for being my cart partner), great to meet everybody.
And to be honest, if I was in charge of weather then I think I did okay as it didn't start raining until after we were done playing)

Great to see this thread, guys!  Outings are always rejuvenating, and it's cool for us in different parts of the country to see them happening from time to time.

It was great meeting everyone and a lot of fun. I got to see @MSchott hit almost every fairway and @Braivohole one out from 60 yards with his last shot of the day.

@bkuehn1952, I'm not sure who the guy in shorts hitting out of the snow is in your avatar, but it surely cannot be the same person I saw today bundled in layers of winter clothes in perfect golf weather. :whistle: 

Seriously, Brian and Terry... thanks so much for organizing this.

Had a great time with the TST Michigan gang on Friday at College Fields. Tough track but fair as the fairways are generously wide. Lets do it again guys!

Thanks to Brian for making this happen.  It was a lot of fun to play with guys who also love this maddening game, especially watching one of us play a tough hole with our best  and making a solid par.  I'm up for this again, any time or course.

@iacas

Time to start thinking about a late June or July "TST Michigan" golf outing.  If anyone has run across a fellow Michigander on TST, let me know and we can include them in the planning.  I have added two additional names to our informal Michigan roster.

If everyone could take the time to respond to a few questions, we can bake in the responses to our plans.

1. Interested or not interested in playing this next time?

2. If interested, best day of the week and also 2nd best day of the week

3. Is the Lansing area still acceptable? (somewhat centrally located for a number of us).  Any suggestions for a different location?

 

My responses are: Interested / Friday, Thursday / Lansing area is fine.  I am in Ann Arbor and anything in the Lansing area is 90 minutes or less driving.

Thanks @bkuehn1952but I'll likely sit this one out. If I have a change of heart early in the planning stages, I'll ask if there's room for another.

I am Interested, Friday is best/will try to make it any day, Lansing area is fine.
I am in Lansing, I can travel 60-90 minutes for an outing.

June is good for me, July I have things booked the first 2 1/2 weeks


Course suggestions:
- Lansing - Timber Ridge, Forest Akers West, Hawk Hollow courses (Hawk/Eagle Eye)
- West (Williamston) - Brookshire, Wheatfield Valley
- North (St. Johns) - The Emerald
- South (Jackson) - The Grande, Calderone Farms (links), Cascades, Arbor Hills

Fridays or Mondays are best but it depends on work. The Lansing or Ann Arbor areas are good. In AA, I'd choose Leslie Park or Washtenaw Golf Club. If we have someone who's a U of M alumnus or works there, the U of M course is excellent. The public can play but it's something like $100.00 if you aren't playing with someone affiliated.

@bkuehn1952 I messaged you letting you know I was interested and just saw the other questions on this thread.

Best days of the week are Saturday and Sunday. I can make Friday work but I get out of work at 3:30 and typically work around the Southfield area so getting to Lansing about 6 would be my best conservative estimate.

I'm out in Warren so Lansing isn't too bad. Ann Arbor would be my preference.

Just let me know what the plans are and I'll see how flexible I can be that day. Sounds like everyone had a good time at the last meet-up!

I'm off the first week of July and hope to get out to the course as much as possible. If anyone happens to be up here (Cadillac area) next week and is looking for a game, please let me know.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
