Any updates?  Sorry I've been quiet so long.  Dog proofing the back yard, which includes making and installing a swing gate across the driveway.  Any of the courses or places mentioned sound fine by me.  Watch out for Lefty76.  He's a young guy with new irons looking to kick his old man's (me) butt.

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 weathe

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.

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!

July is about over, and interest in another outing? Friday was a good day last time,  what works for people in August/September?

My youngest is in the HS band, so home game Fridays are out for me, and I have to move one up to Marquette so mid August is likely tough for me.

Where do we want to play - somewhere near 96/23? AA? Jackson?

How about…

It's a short trip. Several of you could carpool.

I'm flexible.   I have a few dates blocked out but generally any day will work.

It's just a little too far for me.   Thanks though.   I'd get run out of town with an Amazing "M" on my blue driver anyway.

No you wouldn't. I couldn't care less about Ohio State. I tease @georgep all the time.

I'm taking the first week of September off from work and am thinking of heading downstate for a round of golf. I don't have a course selected yet but will probably choose one with affordable rates.

If anyone else is interested in playing that week, please post in this thread.

I wouldn't do it personally, but if you show up here with that, I don't know you.

I may be available.   (week of Labor Day?)

My wife plans on dragging me to the Rochester Art Fair but I'm not sure which day.

My wood head covers are Michigan too.  I almost always wear a Michigan hat.   what's not to like?

Yes. The first full week (Labor Day week).

I don't have a day picked out. I think Terry has league play on Tuesdays and I'd rather not travel on Labor Day. So... Wednesday, Thursday, Friday?

Bring the wives if they play golf and if that helps get you out there. God knows they've got to have a better game than mine. 

Think it over guys... but really, it's no big deal if I'm out on a course by myself. I just wanted to extend the invitation.

What range for tee time do you want?

I'd prefer an early tee time. How does 10-11am work for everyone interested? If we play a course in Mid-Michigan, it's 2 - 2 1/2 hours of travel for me. If it's downstate, it's 3 - 4. No biggie... I'd just have to get an earlier start.

Any of you Michigan golfers ever played Forest Dunes or The Loop?  I've heard good things. And recently found out that one my best friends is very close with the owner there. So been thinking of taking a golf trip up there.

    • Our Junior golf program starts kids at a very young age and the kids progress as their abilities become better. Most will start will the 3 hole program playing from around 100 yards. Then they move back to 150. Then the program advances them to 5 hole rounds. They start at 150 and move back to 200 yards. When they are able to average a set scoring ability they will advance to 9 hole short course and then 9 hole long. During the stages, staff will have instructional days along with fun games they play at the range. Each season consists of a putting contest and a family scramble with award dinner at the end of the season sessions. The program has become very popular as the membership grows with over 300 kids participating. Parents are encouraged to keep scores for groups during the season. Many just walk along and observe and assist when needed. Most kids complete the entire program and they make many new friends. My observance over the years is when kids play, they are learning safe manners and  exhibit a good mannerism learning etiquette and sportsmanship and rules. IMO, kids will enjoy leaning golf with other kids. I enjoyed having my grandson in the program for several years. It also provided me an opportunity to meet the children of many regular golf members who I have golfed with through the years.   
    • I think you keep searching for different things when in reality you need to find your priority thing and work on that until it’s no longer the priority thing.
    • Oops. I should have said 'discarded cigarette lighter' rather than a walnut.
    • I have been doing a drill where I swing with my right arm only (right-handed golfer). In taking the club back slowly with my right arm only to the top and pausing there, I have found that the only real efficient way to initiate the downswing is for the lower body/hips to rotate towards the target. The lower body is needed to tug/pull the upper body/right arm. The momentum created on the downswing of the right arm does not have the left arm to get in the way and stall the swing. I find that the body opens up fully to the target without thought or concentrated effort involved. So practice a full, slow backswing with a pause at the top with the right arm only. Then do a good downswing and the body will be facing the target and there is also some good lag and forward shaft lean.  
    • I would suggest putting up a swing video so that people can assist you better.  In general, very few people can generally have too much hip or shoulder turn.  Most have too little
