  1. It's sad to see Dave leave. That was my first experience in a mens club and with tournament golf, and it was always a blast. I wonder if some of the issue stems from how many other tournaments they have there. It seems that there is some sort of event over there every weekend, between juniors, the various Am "tours" and CGA events, it seems that the course is always hosting something. I hope this doesn't change the ethos of the course. I love that place for what it is.
  2. My 5/18 date came and went. I'm being told by Titleist mid July. Apparently the lighter heads for the +1" were the hold up. I was going to cancel and wait for the new ones, but said screw it. If they get pushed back to August I'll cancel the order.
  3. The waitlist at my club 3 day member guest is something like 2-4 years, depending on how many don't choose to participate in a given year, and if you drop out, you go to the back of the list. I wasn't super excited about that, and then I found out how much it costs to play in it, so honestly not that worried about it. I can't justify the cost of a trip to Bandon to play my own club.
  4. The Mountain Course fell off the mountain a few years ago and isn't there any more. No Joke. I'd say Bear Dance is fairly uniquely Colorado, especially for being a front range course.
  5. Yea, I’ma member out there. Great little course and membership.
  6. I just replaced the lenses in the Oakleys with Fuse Lenses. They are great and not expensive at all.
  7. Mine was like that too, and swinging actually helped it loosen up a bunch. I just had to start really slow, but was ripping drivers after about 30 min.
  8. Well, I got a quoted date of May 18, which isn't too bad, but the day after a golf trip i've got planned. Oh well hopefully they come quicker. I did order them no grips so there shouldn't be any hold up on that end. Fingers crossed.
  9. The stock set carry's the AMT Tour White, which did not work for me. They are also 1" long. Whatever bending I'll need will be done with my fitter.
  10. So I just ordered a set of T100's thought my pro shop and was wondering if anyone has any idea on lead times from Titleist right now. I ordered 4-G with the AMT Black shafts. Just curious if anyone has heard anything.
  11. I went to Dr. Noonan years ago for knee issues I was having and he was awesome. Another doc told me I definitely needed surgery and I went to Noonan for a 2nd opinion. It turned out to be IT Band issues. He walked me through exactly what was going on, and options for both surgery, which he didn't like for my situation and how active I was, and PT. He highly suggested the PT and I went that route and was very happy. Their new facility is top notch, and while they are affiliated/owned by UC Health I believe that they very much still operate as an independent facility.
  12. They generally open the grass tees April 1. The further you go to the West, the better the hitting stalls.
  13. I agree that the cost are a bit high, but they are doing a big project over next summer that will easily put us into that tier of club, maybe not Glemoor, but definitely Pinehurst and Lakewood and others. Completely new pool area, new turn grill and restrooms, fitness center, kids area, and golf simulators. They are also completely re-doing (excavating, relining, dredging) all of the ponds on the front 9. And some bunker work on the first few holes.
  14. I would not join a Club Corp course at all. I've heard that you can't get tee times hardly at all on the weekends. Not sure if its true, but I've heard it more than once. If you're interested in a club I can give you the run down on Valley. We joined last year and it was awesome. Initiation has effectively gone up because of a new pool and other projects in the works, but you can pay it over a few years. It was the best decision my wife and I have made in a while.
  15. It's awesome. I don't think you can get 150 out of it. Maybe 100. Regardless it is a great perk. If I have one complaint, it's that the range is too flat. It's hard to see where longer shots actually land.
  16. I've been loving it. It's nice to be able to go out for 4 or 5 holes after work rather than beating balls at the range. There are a couple of 4-5 hole loops I can play. The membership has been awesome and haven't met anyone that I wouldn't play with again. We did vote for a new pool, outdoor grill and fitness center, so it kind of sucked to join then have a substantial assessment, but it is needed and going to be sweet when its complete. Course is always in good condition and pace of play is spectacular. No regrets at all.
  17. That's interesting. If so, it hasn't been put out to the membership that he's coming over to Valley. Will be cool to have him on site.
  18. Just wanted to say thanks for the opinions on Valley. We played it and it is a great, walkable layout, and they seem to be doing a lot to really up the conditioning, although it is bad. I think the wife and I are going to take the plunge into private club life.
  19. Is it possible to play Dismal River without a member?
  20. Hey guys. I'm curious if anyone is a member at Valley or has ever played the course. I've been thinking of joining there the last 3 years, and finally got the sign off from the wife. She loved the vibe there. It's 7 min drive from the house, and 15 min bike ride so convenience is awesome. Just looking for any comments on the club or course from anyone who has any.

Anyone else get in? > > https://nolayingup.com/2019/06/28/the-nlu-summit/ I really wanted to play in this, but I couldn't justify the $400 that they were asking for 36 at CommonGround. Also my swing is in shambles so I wasn't super excited by the prospects. Along the lines of swing being shambles, I went to see Kelly at South Broadway yesterday. He has me working on some pretty extreme moves to get my speed back and more shoulder tilt, theory seems to be a lot like George Gankas. Just interested in seeing if anyone has done lessons with him and what the results were. I ended up getting a 4 pack of lessons from him because he was raising his prices today.

You have to just know someone that has access to the course.

I think you have to show some sort of ID when you go to play. If you find out anything different let us know. I'd love to go play down there again sometime.
  23. > @DaVinciGolf said: > At the Air Force Academy do we want to play Blue or Silver? Blue all day long and twice on sunday.
  24. I played Murphy Creek on Sunday and it was not in particularly great shape. The fairways were all really shaggy and not cut particularly short, which I could attribute to the rain and snow we've been having. There was still a lot of winter kill in a lot of areas. I guess my biggest frustration was the greens. They were rolling pretty darn quick, but it seems like it still hasn't recovered from aeration. They seemed really bump to me, which given how fast they were running was a little confusing. I think I'll wait to play it again for at least a month.
