During the Fall/Winter with possible temps reaching 50's and 60's wondering if there would be any interest in a regular Saturday Skins Game at Sweetens Cove and if people would travel?

We would have the Fire Pit burning and refreshments flowing as most of you know its pretty rustic out here but it might be a heck of a thing if we could get people coming in from everywhere and on Saturdays know that there is a regular game you can get into.

We can do some Closest to the Pins and get creative with some house games (Long Drive off Top of Shed) and possible double pins to play 18?

Any interest?

    Both attempts to play Sweetens were thwarted by rain for me. I would make a trip down for this but it's about 3 hours and I don't typically play golf until hunting seasons are out at the end of January.

    Cost pry $100 riding and $75 walking would break down $65 for 18 w/cart and $40 18 walking....$20/skins $10/CP and $5/merchandise prizes or daily low score

    too far for travel, but would love to play there more often. See you in the Spring

    I've got some friends up in Cleveland, TN that might like to come down a couple times.
    Walter: Tell me Bobby, why do you play this game?
    Bobby: I play because I love it.
    Walter: Well I play for the money. I have to win. That is why every time we face each other I will always beat you.

    This is a great idea! I'm about 4:30 away & will try to get in probably one Saturday in January. I stopped by for the first time last week on way home from Thanksgiving in Nashville with our son. Didn't take my clubs so just looked around, took some pictures & bought a sweet headcover!
