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. 

I haven't personally but there is a link here somewhere about the course.

I played Forest Dunes about 3 years after it opened.  Very nice course but at $154 then I thought it was over priced.  Before I go back there I would play both the Dream and Nightmare in West Branch.  I see the rates are more reasonable now.  @dmay_golf, if you can get a good deal then it would be worth playing there.

 

@JonMA1 @dennyjones, any course you two would like to play is fine by me, and Tuesday that week is good for me also.

 @tlazzol, @dennyjones,  what do you guys thinks about this course? I'm going to tentatively plan on playing Tuesday, September 5th sometime in the morning. It doesn't have to be this course.

Anyone is welcome to join me. If interested, just post to this thread. I'm open to suggestions as far as where.

@tlazzol, @dennyjones I made a tee time for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept 5. For now, it's 3 riding 18 holes. It's not a big deal for others to join or if anyone cancels. He said he'e appreciate a call if we cancel. Obviously, anyone else interested in playing will have to call the course.

The Fall rates apply ($25 per person). They have a driving range.

Edit: Kind of important....

In that case, we're in trouble. Ask @tlazzol about my track record on providing good weather.

I live in Mason, south of Lansing.  Retired and don't mind driving up to 3 hours to play.  If I'm able to play next year we can get together.  But looking at your index I don't think we'll be playing the same tees.

Ann Arbor here and looking for new people to play with.

I get out to Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti a few times per year. I will hit you up next time I go.

@criley4way, @Braivo, @dennyjonesI would also be interested in getting together.  I played Eagle Crest last December.  Like to see it in warmer conditions!  Any day but Tuesdays.

@Tlazzol and @Bravio I have a group that plays at 6pm on Thursdays. We are doing Stonebridge and Lake Forest but always open to play on weekend. You are welcome to join us any time. Just give me a few days.

It looks like the weather will break soon.   I think we'll have to wait until the courses dry but I'm game to play.   I'm free almost any day.  @bkuehn1952's home course of Leslie Park in A2  is very nice but I'm game for almost any course within a decent drive from my house.

    • I had two friends that played Founders Clubs.  I have never heard of them being a club made by Langert. How ever a search did bring up some info on those clubs. Is this the item you are referring to? eBay has a listing for this driver. My friends played this driver.  
    • I watch GSK just because I like watching him play.  But he is a scratch player so he can get away with hitting three 6 irons on a 540 yd par five.  Me, I have to get max distance on every shot because I know that I will probably mis-hit 1/3 shots.  So his divide and conquer strategy wont work for me.  Fun videos tho. 
    • Another idea is to make your own shaft flex board. Maltby sell one for $180. I once made one for free using a scrap of plywood, and some 2", 1/4" dowell material. Hung it on my garage wall.  I marked known  clubs flexes on the board as reference points, using a consistent weight. The board also gave me other info besides flex.  It was crude looking, but did the job.  It mattered little what the manufacturer's rating on the shaft was, which was usually different from each company. What ever my flex board showed me, was what the actual flex was when compared to the known flexes I used.   Maltby probably has a picture of his flex board on his website. Probably other sites have picts available too. With a little self ingenuity, a person can study the picture, and build their own. It's pretty easy. 
    • I thought about this a while, and then had an epiphany last night.  Without a perfect test, the answer is almost definitely no. It's a fairly simple statistical calculation called Bayes' Theorem. The end result is that you'll end up preventing more people from driving when they aren't drunk than preventing drunk drivers. I'm going to plug in numbers, but since I'm (likely correctly!) assuming drunk driving is a rare event, the numbers don't really matter that much. I'm also going to assume the test is extremely accurate. Let's say that in 1/10,000 car trips, the driver is too drunk to legally drive. This is probably an underestimation by a factor of 100, if not more, if you think about how many car trips there are in a day. Let's assume that the when the test is positive, the driver is drunk 99.9% of the time. And then assume that when the test is negative, the driver is sober 99.9% of the time (in other words, if the test is negative, the driver is drunk 0.1% of the time). We can use this to plug in probabilities for each event. Probability that a driver is drunk: .0001 Probability that a driver is sober: .9999 Probability that a drunk driver gets a positive test: .999 Probability that a drunk driver gets a negative test: .001 Probability that a sober driver gets a positive test: .001 Probability that a sober driver gets a negative test: .999 Bayes' Theorem applies here. It says: The probability that someone is drunk driver given a positive test is equal to the probability of a drunk driver gets a positive test times the probability of a drunk driver; that divided by the following: the probability of a drunk getting a positive test times probability of a drunk driver plus the probability of sober driver getting a positive test times the probability of a sober driver. In mathematic terms (DD=drunk driver; SD = sober driver; + = positive test): P(DD | +) = (P(+ | DD)*P(DD))/((P+ | DD)*P(DD)+P(+ | SD)*P(SD)) Plug in the numbers: P(DD | +) = ((.999)*(.0001))/((.999)*(.0001)+(.001)*(.9999)) P(DD | +) = .0908 In other words, the probability of a drunk driver given a positive test is only 9%. Meaning that out of a 100 people that test positive under this test, 91 of them would actually be sober. Because the test is imperfect and drunk driving is rare, it's going to impact more sober drivers than drunk drivers. Even if the test is 99.99% accurate and as a false positive rate of 0.01%, the probability of a drunk driver given a positive test is only 50%. Note that I'm assuming that 1/10,000 car trips is one by a drunk driver. If you assume 1/100,000 car trips are by a drunk driver, the probability of a drunk driver given a positive test is 0.9%. (You can also use this calculate to find out the odds that a drunk driver will have a negative test, but I have other stuff to do now...) So, without a nearly perfect test, it's a bad idea for the entire population. If drunk drivers were more frequent, then it would make more sense. Hence, it makes sense for someone who is more likely to drive drunk, and why the current policy probably makes sense. 
    • Hey Ben, good to see you’re still around!   I remember those irons. They’re beautiful! Sorry, I can’t help with the driver though…
