  1. Her plan is to park about a block south of there, and yes, shopping will be involved.
  2. My wife and I will be staying there also. She will be sightseeing at Colonial Williamsburg while the rest of us are golfing.
  3. There is a tremendous difference in cost to get a new car every 3 years instead of every 8 years, regardless of whether you are leasing or buying. Consider the other option of buying a new car with 5 years of financing and then trading it in after 3 years, you will still owe two more years of payments and may even be underwater on the trade-in value. If you truly want a new car every 3 years, best to bite the bullet up front and only finance it for 3 years. That way, you won't take the big hit on each subsequent purchase.
  4. Makes sense, use your GPS to find the shortcuts and try to avoid Lakewood and Jamestown unless you enjoy lots of traffic lights.
  5. I concur that it would not make much sense to stay in Warren, unless you are coming from central PA or something. Could be more like an hour from Chautauqua, with typical weekend vacationer traffic. The hotel in Findlay Lake has changed affiliations. It is now a Comfort Inn and Suites. Located at the interchange of I-86 and NY Route 426. Rates around $94 depending on your affiliations. Another option would be to stay at Peek'n Peak Resort (about 4 miles south of Findlay Lake). Their summer rates have been pretty good this year as they are desperate for business. You could also play there on Monday, it's a great course. Same architect as Whispering Woods and used to host a Nationwide/Buy.com/Korn Ferry event. I would join you, if anyone is interested.
  6. 6475 is a bit deceptive, because there are 3 short par fours (300, 288, and 282), which are counteracted by 4 long ones (451, 426, 423, and a seriously uphill 411). For that reason, I concur with your mixed tee idea.
  7. There is another location of the Cobblestone Hotel along the Bayfront Parkway about a mile west of downtown Erie, about 12 minutes from Whispering Woods, but farther from Chautauqua. Whispering Woods is quite hilly, and there are several instances where the distance from a green to the next tee is very long. For that reason, all greens fees include the cart, and walking is discouraged as it affects pace of play. I could explain the mask rules, but they will likely change twice more before the event.
  8. BDC's brain shart could be what gets Tiger in the field for the weekend!
  9. He may also want to dial back on his 4 woods out of 6 inch deep rough.
  10. Count me in... Saturday (Practice) at CHQ: @georgep @Hardspoon @BradSomrak @Bonvivant @Carl3 @vasaribm @ChetlovesMer @Grizvok @Divot Master Sunday (Playing) TBD: @saevel25 @georgep @Hardspoon @BradSomrak @Bonvivant @vasaribm @ChetlovesMer @Divot Master
  11. I did a driver fitting about a year ago, tried numerous name brand and component heads, ended up with the Maltby KE4 head, gained quite a bit of distance over my old Callaway and Taylor Made drivers, very happy and still using it.
  12. And my 32nd was Thursday! Congrats to all of us!
  13. Has anyone noticed that this hole is almost a mirror image of no. 5 at Whispering Woods? I would play up the right half of the fairway with a slight fade and hope to roll up near the front edge of the green. It is 250 yards to carry the trap from the black tee, which is my absolute best drive, so I would not aim over the trap unless there was a big tailwind.
  14. And yet we had no difficulty in keeping up with the bachelor party eightsome in front of us.
