I try and play early so I can get half the round done before the kids are even awake.  I can play a twilight once in a while, but I find those rounds play a little slow for my taste.  I enjoy the 3 and half hour dawn patrol pace.

Mile Square after 1:00pm sounds good to me. $28/person twilight?

Yeah, that's a bit late for an outing, we don't want to risk not finishing.

Yeah I think this is a logistical nightmare. One idea would be to divide up SoCal into a few regions and have a few meets. You could attend all if you want or just one. Something like North, Central South.

This is why we usually end up sort of central to the group that is coming.  More often than not, because we have guys from Pasadena, south OC, San Diego and Palm Desert, this ends up being in the Inland Empire area.

And because we have guys who are driving a bit, this is why, @islavistan, we wouldn't be teeing off too early or late.  Nobody likes slow rounds, but for many of us, its worth it a couple of times a year to meet up with a few fellow TSTers. :)

Also, adding @jamo for this one. :-P

@Golfingdad didn't know how often these happen.  if it's a couple times a year, definitely something I can pull off.

Sounds good to me. I'm good going to Mile Square again or searching for somewhere new. The desert would be fun. 

I just played Coronado in a tournament and it's a good, fun layout, the fairways and greens are in great shape. Only problem is it would be a ways away for everyone.

I owe a friend a visit in Coronado.  I might be the farthest from Coronado and I'm fine making the trip.  But I'm fine just about anywhere.

I'm still not 100% sure how "clubs" work on here so I'm just going to put a bunch of tags here of people that might be interested:  @Lihu, please add the ones you think of that I miss.

@Big C, @jefkve, @Bechambo, @No Mulligans, @Pakoh, @GolfSwine, @chilepepper, @Hategolf, @gregsandiego, @spider, @Patch


@mvmac, @tristanhilton85, @bmartin461, @Shindig@Hacker James

@No Mulligans, and @bones75 are two more I can think of off the top of my head. . .

 

Especially if we go to San Diego. . .

 Not as often as we’d like.  At our best a couple of years ago, we were doing them quarterly, but more recently it’s been more like once a year or so.

I love Coronado and would make that trip too.

He might be, so on that slim chance, figured I’d clue him in.

Like to add @4right, and @agoodmanmbk, who are also So. Cal residents. We should grow this list. I can probably even stay a bit longer if no near the holidays.

This could be really fun!

just noticed a few new posts in this thread.  I had forgotten the "club" was formed and unless I just did not see it, no mention in the main forum.  While I like the idea of the "club" forum, I can also see a lot  missed for the occasional visitor.

Hey everyone, I might be going back to San Diego for work this up coming week on one of the days. I'm thinking early morning somewhere but need to be at work around 11:00 or so. I should be able to get in 3.5 to 4 hours. That Vinyard estates sounds good because I can get a good rate with my amped up Players Club card.

I joined recently and didn’t see too many SoCal specific posts. So I created the club to get the ball rolling. Still trying to figure out how it works myself. But welcome to the club!

Quite a few folks have joined and then invited others. So it’s growing.

well, good luck with getting this group to commit. We have had not a lot of participation last two times out, but no matter, even a foursome is great.  So far mostly from Orange County or out of state even. We did have one more from San Diego County last time (thanks, Mario).

Someone pick a date.

Or, since nobody has, I will: December 9th.

I can't make it December 9, but if others can, I encourage everyone to go without me rather than waiting for me.

9th is kind of iffy for me as far as location is concerned, if I'm in San Diego for work then I can make down there. If I'm up here I'll likely not like driving down twice.

However, that being said. I've been wanting to play Dana's home course. El Dorado Park is a relatively nice course in Long Beach and voted one of the best 100 courses by "Golf Link".

Hey, guys, I'm free to go anywhere in the LA/OC area these next two weeks.

Anyone for El Dorado Park on December 9th***?

 

***We could have a couple outings, one this month and another one early February at Coronado Bay so more people can join?

Why'd you write that last part so small? ;)  That makes plenty of sense.  Those who can get together on the 9th, keep planning, and lets also try and find a date for another outing in January.:beer:

    • I was able to pay off my loans early all by myself, so everyone else should too.  Of course I was only paying $1200 per year in tuition for a chemical engineering degree. Now get off my lawn. It does "feel" like colleges compete based on amenities more than cost than they did when I was in school. In addition to the added cost of those amenities, state governments have reduced funding per student to the schools which forced the schools to rely on  tuition more. The availability of student loans allowed the states to cut the funding. I don't know which happened first, the loans or the funding cuts. I assume there is also some waste at schools in the form of a higher administrator to student ratio. I don't know what to do about the high cost of college and the debt burden on students.  I don't think that the ROI is high enough for some degrees. Many would be better off learning a trade.  In addition to the limits Erik mentioned, I think loan forgiveness for certain degrees in certain locations could help.  In the mean time I recommend everyone use the plan that I used for my kids to graduate college debt free. I have 2 single siblings who make good money who started contributing to a 529 for my kids when they were little.  I only paid about $4K per year which was in order to get the max tax credits. Each kid did/does get some scholarships that covered around 25% of total costs. My son is currently in school and plays on the golf team, but he does not get any money for it. Maybe he can earn a little next year with some continued improvement. My back up plan was for my wife to get a full time job after having been a SAHM and then substitute teacher for all of our kids' lives.
    • I remember last summer, when he complained that a cameraman was "damaging my brand" by having the temerity to video Bryson's actions.  Same here, its not Bryson's fault, its everyone else.  If you care about other people's opinions of you, you better think before you open your mouth and give them a reason to think you're a doofus.
    • Well those are actual numbers for one school, so it’s a small sample. And it’s more years. 1957 was $600, 1978 was $6000 and WPI was $60,000 when my son graduated from HS in 2013. When I was in school it went from $6k to $8K in 4 years.
    • Technically yesterday- 80, Woodley Lakes from the whites - 38-42 with a horrendous 7 on the easy par 5 13th after hitting a great drive AND a very nice 3 wood to about 91 yards short…then the carnage began - 56 degree fat to the collar…square strike (yep, have on - love it) caught the seam of the collar and went 25 feet past…first putt burned the edge but slipped 4 feet by…4 footer right in the heart but only traveled 3 feet 11 inches…BOOM double bogey…   Tomorrow is Balboa - usually break 80 there, but we will see…   good round to all playing today!
    • Scale back the Federal backing of student loans. Allow students to default like any other loan. Universities can offer loans in conjunction with private banks. The universities would be responsible for making sure they have good, sound programs and solid students who can then get appropriate jobs after graduation to repay the loans. If a university pushes too many marginal degree programs to students who have questionable academic talents, they will pay the price with high defaults that hurts their bottom line. That is the only way to change this. There is nothing stopping universities coming up with endless silly programs, recruiting foolish or desperate people to take out huge loans that they will never be able to repay. We have laws against the payday loan people abusing the poorest in society, but here we are abusing the naïve youth of our nation who lack experience at life. Additionally, too many people go to universities. Some schools have programs for the mentally challenged and learning disabled. Why saddle them and their parents with useless debt? In some cases this has become a system rigged to fleece a class of people and the government is complicit. We are allowing the government at the state and federal level take advantage of its citizenry. With the government backing this scheme, prices naturally go up. If the government allows these loans to be written off, the prices will go higher thereby compounding the problem. I have 4 children who have earned a total of 7 university degrees and none have had any student debt, so I have thought a lot about this. I have also interviewed a lot of new graduates some of who have had loan amounts that are ridiculous. Two guys in particular with BS in mechanical engineering with loans just under $200k. To me that is a red flag they won't be able to solve basic engineering problems.
