    Jacob, did you already have to prepay for that time? Looks like that group is full, but I snagged a single at 12:29 and there are a couple spots still open as of 2pm. It's $35 with cart on the GVR website, so a couple bucks more, but gets an extra 40 minutes of sunlight which should mean finishing 18.




    Shoot, yeah I did prepay. I'm gonna see if I can cancel and join that group instead. I love being able to play a full 18.



    Edit: I'm such a doofus. The 1:07 time I booked was for today! WHOOPS. I could of sworn I had booked tomorrow. Clearly I'm still at work and didn't make it out to GVR by that time, so I'm on the phone now to cancel. Just signed up for tomorrow at 12:29 though. Thanks for the heads up! Without that, I would have shown up very very confused tomorrow afternoon. Looks like I'll see you tomorrow!


    Sweet! Sent you a PM... see you tomorrow.

    Hopefully Chile Dip Master can update you to Murphy Creek. Never played it in the winter. Only ones I know of that do some weird things, the Denver courses will put like 3 or 4 holes in a green and you're suppose to rotate it clockwise after finishing a hole.



    If you want to try and do Walnut Creek, I might be able to join. It is actually in pretty decent shape but you'll need to set up a tee time asap as that course gets packed on a 45*+ day much less a 60* day.

    Good luck! Golfweek?




    Yup! Played on the tour all last year, and had a real fun time. My game kept improving towards the end of the year. Pretty limited field so far (16 people in my flight), but it'll be fun just to travel and play a couple new courses. And possibly even make money from it!




    Sounds like fun regardless of field. I noticed your comments in another thread about the tour. I might have to do both Golfweek and GC just to come up with excuses to travel lol.

    Love to have someone else to play with, time to start meeting some people.



    Walnut Creek is in Westminster correct? I’ll be at the auction on I70 and Tower in the morning, and have to make a pit stop at the one on York and 270. Would have to double check start times to make sure I could leave early enough to get across town.

    Ok, just looked it up, it’s close to 36 it looks like and I would be coming right up that, so shouldn’t be too terrible getting there.



    I’ll check a couple things and post again in the morning.

    Hey Irv, 2 us are coming over. Should be able to make it by 10:30. Earlier or as close to that time probably works best for us since we’re driving back afterwards.

    Sorry late to the game. MC has tarps down for the year. They put them down this last Monday. Was over there testing a driver/shaft combo today and everything else for practice is open.



    Edit: to clarify MC tarps the greens during the winter. Ever since the US Public Championship out there they have had to do it.

    Thanks CDM, that’s good to know. Hopefully we can make the Walnut Creek deal work.

    Thanks for chiming in Brett. I played MC the last day before they tarped. It was in pretty decent shape for this time of year, but that last day of the season out there always makes me sad. Still my favorite course in the area (probably because it was the first one I started playing regularly).



    In case anyone else was wondering, they'll reopen the first week of March I believe, weather permitting. Everything else is still open, just as you pointed out.

    You do the auto auctions? I've always wanted to go to one, but I'd need to make sure my account was empty before attending! I'm already having to talk myself out of this since we don't have a place to put it (live in Capitol Hill). image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />

    Yeah Brian, but just normal cars. Not custom or old or exotic or anything. It used to be fun, but the vehicles are so high right now and the auctions charge such outrageous fees it’s getting outlandish. It’s part of the reason I’m getting out after 25 years.

    Brian your point conditions looked spot on for this time of year. Lesley who manages MC and I were talking today and she regrets having them do it =) Looking at the weather forecast they have a good week plus of nice weather coming.

    I figured they were more normal after checking out the site for the auctions. Still seems like it'd be an interesting time. Why are the prices so high these days? Is it a demand thing, or is it that the average transaction price on a new car is $33k+ (insane)?

    It is interesting, I enjoy the auction part. Denver for some reason has always been a strong market. I've gone to Dallas, Houston, and Phoenix in the past. Prices seem to be better, but now freight is inching up all the time. Just a few years ago I could get an eight car load hauled for around $3,000. Now I'm lucky to get it for $4,000 and it might take a month or more to get a truck. We explained to two people today that the higher used car prices are a reflection of the crazy prices on new ones now.

    Got a late Christmas/early Birthday present from my dad in the mail yesterday.



    8ZTNVXy.jpg



    I was totally amazed/surprised/blown away. This thing is so nice. Pretty sure it's the Tour Staff bag, and matches my fairway wood/hybrid perfectly. Now I'm regretting selling my 2017 M1.



    Realistically, I probably won't actually use it on the course. I like to walk when I play, and I already have a full bag of TaylorMade clubs. Having a staff bag with my name on it, and proceeding to shoot bogey golf would really be something. But it's gorgeous and I'll definitely use it to store spare clubs.

    What an awesome gift. Even if you don't use it on the course it looks great in the house just holding clubs.

    Sweet bag, Jacob... looks awesome. It was a pleasure meeting up yesterday and playing. Thanks for putting up with my hacking around all day. You played great, hope you saved some in the tank for your upcoming tournament trip.



    For the rest of the board... don't be fooled by Jacob's "awe shucks, I'm a short hitter and haven't played" routine. First tee, he was talking about being a short hitter, and having a month off and made a couple crummy swings on the tee box. Then for the next 16 holes, from 2-17, he proceeds to smack his 3 wood around 260+ and drop 3 or 4 birdies on me all day! I'm glad we weren't playing for money, or my wallet would've ended up a bunch lighter...
  • jacobEDGEjacobEDGE Members Posts: 1,984 ✭✭
    Yeah it was great to get out there and play with you! Had a real fun time, and those 2 guys we were paired with were super fun to play with also. Felt so good to be back out on the course again. We will definitely have to play some more once the weather gets nicer. I wanna check out GVR again in it's prime conditions.

    Hit balls on saturday in a T shirt and it felt amazing to be on the course again. More importantly, my shoulder felt really good for the first time since 2016 so I'm hoping the scores can come down a little more this year. Not playing men's club again as it seemed like it was sucking up all my free rounds to play with guys who weren't fun in 5+ hours. Hoping to have some more open days to get out on some casual rounds so I'll try to be better about making it out to some of these meet ups.



    Happy 2018 and hit um straight!

    I made the trip to Club Champion and now have some clubs to sell off. I used to sell off my old sticks at GolfSmith, but those days are gone. Anywhere in Denver that buys used sticks that you like?

    So, I went to the Indoor Swing Rex place at Park Hill last night to get some swings in before my trip this weekend. And the wildest thing happened to me.



    Just hitting shots on the virtual driving range, and on one swing, my club head somehow managed to come around and get snagged in my keys. I wear my keys on a carabiner on my hip...and somehow the head managed to squeeze through the little tiny hole at the perfect angle. So my club was stuck in my keys. I couldn't even slide the club back out. I had to unclip it from my pants and remove it that way. The club head is literally too large to fit through it. So I must have hit it at an angle that opened the clip, let the head pass through, then close again all in one motion. Best part is, I got the video footage of it happening.



    http://www.youtube....eature=youtu.be



    I could take 1 million more swings in a row, and that'd never happen again.
