  1. Oak Creek is a decent track as well and is in Irvine, a little on the pricey side. I've played Strawberry Farms as well but I think you can find better courses for what you pay here. But there's a lot of courses in Southern Cal doing maintenance so check beforehand
  2. I'm going to be in New Orleans the first week of December and was wondering: 1. Is it playable this time of the year. 2. What courses are recommended.
  3. The good thing is that it doesn't get dark until a little after 9 pm so you should be good to get 18 in. It is weird golfing that late. Check the weather though. I teed off in the morning and needed a long sleeve shirt but by the time the afternoon came i didn't need it and if i remember from the weather forecast when i was up there it was supposed to be overcast most of the week.
  4. I played Chambers Bay on Wednesday morning, you won't be disappointed by playing this course. Make sure you practice putting here because these greens are very slow. The place is surreal, I kind of lost myself during my round by looking out at the Puget Sound. In the afternoon I played the Home Course down in Dupont (a little further south of Chambers Bay). This was a good course as well and my only compliant is that the fairways need to be mowed (and there is no clubhouse) but the greens were pretty fast. Or maybe it just seemed fast after playing Chambers Bay in the AM. Its pretty reasonably priced, something like $50-$60. Today I played White Horse which is a ferry ride over to Kingston. This is another new course and was designed by Pete Dye's niece and she is rather cruel herself much like her uncle. I got my a$$ handed to me there I played the tips and if you miss the fairway good night you are not finding your ball. This course was also between $50-$60 but add in the ferry ride and you're looking at a little bit more. Despite playing poorly I think this is another quality course. I'm hoping to play either Gold Mountain or Washington National tomorrow.
  5. I'm going up there next week and have a reservation at Chambers Bay and was hoping to play Washington National which is supposed to be a good course as the previous post indicated. I'll let you know about the conditions here. I have played Druids Glen which I really liked. I've also played Port Ludlow which is west of Seattle and you either need to take a ferry across or go around and I'm not real sure its worth the drive. I've also heard Gold Mountain is a good course but haven't played it.
  6. I'm going to be up there in a couple of weeks and will be playing this course but I was wondering what other courses are worth playing up there. I've played Druids Glen and Port Ludlow. I've heard the UW course is nice and Gold Mountain also but don't have a lot of input about these or if any others are better than these. I probably will be staying by Seatac.
  7. I go to Portland and Seattle a lot and played a few courses up there. From San Fran the flight is even shorter. Have you considered Coeur d'Alene, haven't been there but one day I will.
  8. My parents moved out to Ashburn and since I'm in Southern Cal I don't get to stay on top of the courses in VA. I've played the following (and I'm excluding some of the lower end courses): Virginia National Old Hickory Raspberry Falls South Riding Stonewall Westfields Virigina Oaks I'm going to play Laurel Hill next time I get back but does anyone know of any other good courses old that way that are worth playing.
  9. 1. Whistling Straits 2. Pebble Beach 3. Bethpage 4. Chambers Bay 5. TPC Sawgrass I'd like to think of course I can actually play since I'll never get to play Augusta or Pine Valley
  10. I just got back from there for a company conference and I got to play Whirlwind-Cattail which is about 20 minutes south of the airport so i wasn't sure if you were considering going south but i thought this was a very nice course and got a discounted tee time (about $65).
  11. I did receive my tickets in the mail a couple of weeks ago. If you got the same confirmation I did you were supposed to get the tickets sometime in May and I think there was a number to call if you didn't get them.
  12. I would consider the following: Torrey (be careful I think they usually are doing maintenace around the time you are looking to go and since its a muni it usually takes longer for the course get back into decent condition and for the price you'll be paying it would not be worth it) Barona (get the casino card and you'll save 15% on the green fees - I think this is the best value in town) Maderas Coronado (its only $25 to walk any day any time) Talega (this is actually in Orange County but only takes an hour to get there) Salt Creek Carlton Oaks (this is hit or miss - I've seen great conditions here and very poor conditions here, I can't be all that bad if it holds the 1st round of the pga qualifying can it?)
  13. I moved from the Washington DC area to San Diego for the golf. I play all year round, isn't that the question here???? I was playing today and thought it was a little to chilly for me...I think it was in the upper 50s.
  14. Any of them????? But if i had to pick one probably either Scott's, Goosen's or Woods. Maybe Elk in his prime.
  15. I already did the Bandon last year and will go back when Old MacDonald opens up. Did Pinehurst the year before. But in the meantime its looking like Kohler, i was wondering about the cost to but erova answer that.
  16. I've been toying with the idea of heading up there. But if you had a choice which would any of you have done, the trip to Whistling Straits or Pebble?
  17. there was an article on yahoo about dd and it indicated that he's like the rest of us. he realizes he needs to lose a few lbs.
  18. After a bad hole and I'm upset about it I just take a breath and on the next tee shot I tell myself to slow down on my swing. I take a mind set to have a good tempo in my swing. Because I think after a bad hole there is a tendency to take the anger out on the ball thus causing a swing that is quick than my normal swing.
  19. I was there about a month ago and played Revere - Lexington and I really enjoyed that course and its pretty close to the strip. Again it really depends on where you stay so check your options and when i was there i think there were a lot of course doing maintenance so check that as well
  20. Tied for dead last, this breaks my heart.
  21. I moved from the area about 5 years ago but when I lived back there and I always liked Little Bennett, Wiskey Creek (and Els course), and the PB Dye course. Not sure if these are still good tracks. In Baltimore there is Mt. Pleasant which is a cheap course but a great track. I played Greystone up in White Hall which was also a good (and tough) track. Queenstown and Hog's Neck are also good courses and on the way to the beaches (a little past Annapolis I think).
  22. He's by far my favorite player to watch and it kills me that he's not playing well. I always thought his swing was so smooth. I just really love his tempo. I saw him play at the Buick at Torrey earlier this year and I thought he played well. I think he was 4 over but he had two bad holes.
  23. If you had to choose between Raven or Whirlwind which one would it be?
  24. I've played Grayhawk-Talon and one of the Troon courses. These were good courses but its probably too pricey right now. I also played We-Ko-Pa Golf Club-Cholla course which i really liked but this was a little difficult to get to. I agree with one of the previous posts, your location is going to be the key b/c some of these places are not easy to get to. I haven't played the ASU course but i hear great things about it.
  25. I was planning on going to Vegas in mid-April and was wondering what course to play (I've already played the TPC and both courses at Reflection Bay). Since I'll be staying on the Strip I wasn't sure if Bali Hai was worth the $$$ since I'll be saving a little on cab fares. I certainly don't mind paying but it hasn't to be worth it. I'm probably going to be back in the summer and wasn't sure if I should just wait until then, I can tolerate the heat.
