  1. Looking for an instructor to fix my driver swing. Most other aspects of my game are good, but this outside in with my driver, I cant seem to fix. Need help! Twin cities .
  2. So, I've not been able to get out since the lift on the ban. Tried to get a single tee time and was told 630pm at three different courses. But i'm interested in getting feedback from the community here on how its playing out ( pun fully intended).
  3. Our Governor announced that Golfing, hiking, and boating are to be opened up!! Must follow restrictions and social distancing. I hope we all follow them carefully as we could lose this just as easily as it was taken away. But its GREAT news.
  4. iowa here I come. Maybe Kansas.
  5. Yeah, I walk most often too. Except Victory Links. Bought Bag Boy Tri Swivel. And its nice, but I still prefer to just pick up and drop off bag . Ohio just announced that courses may remain open.
  6. John Potter from Prestwick started petition to get governor to allow courses to stay open. 15k signatures . I believe it will happen. I'm going to be walking these next few rounds, so considering following another thread about carrying fewer clubs. Setting up my bag today. Driver, 22degree Hybrid, 6, 8, 9, Gap, 54 and 58, and putter. Ordered Sun Mountain 2.5+ bag
  7. Anyone know of the status of course opening of closure situation due to Virus? Going to be in the 50's next week
  8. Anyone know if any our Mn courses will be opening up soon?
  9. Love Willingers. But have most often scored it well. Toughest, . StoneRidge over in Woodbury. That course kicks my a..
  10. Well, I went out and played at The Refuge yesterday and today at Stonebrook as we have a heavy storm with about a foot of snow predicted for Wed and Thursday. Was nice while it lasted.
  11. I found a Taylormade Burner Bubble, 2 wood, that I was out hitting today. Kinda fun and very long when struck in the middle.
  12. Signed up a few weeks/a month ago and played Persimmon at Anthem and Seville course in Phoenix. Enjoyed both rounds and staff and staff were really friendly, along with members I got paired with. Then played Dinah Shore and Palmer at Mission Hills in Palm Springs, also totally fun. Dinah much more so than Palmer, but still fun. Tomorrow, I head to OKC, playing Oak Tree on Friday, Trails of Norman on Sat and The Greens on Sunday. Weather looks a bit sketchy but better than the snow and rain here in Mn. Will post reviews next week. So far, I'm very happy with the Travel membership.
  13. close to the airport and worth playing, Encena. Troon facility and almost always in very good condition. Landing at 2:30, you'll be lucky to get in 9. Taquitz does have driving range and close to airport. I did read that there was some impact fro the rains, but shouldn't be an issue in a few weeks. And for additional round, without housing, I would recommend Eagle Falls in Indio. Clubhouse is in a trailer and A weird location behind the Fantasy Springs casino. But the course is one of my favorites that is not private.
  14. A little late on this as MaxBuck seems as set on PGA,(which is great, IMO). Father in law is member at Mission Hills and Tamarisk. about to drop Mission Hills. Tamarisk is a very walkable and pretty easy course. Mostly set up the a more "aged" membership. Vastly Jewish, as is my Father in Law. They are remaining there as the social portion is more important then the golf. The course as ALWAYS in immaculate condition. But not where I would want to play daily. And the food there is fantastic. I would have a hard time deciding between Mission Hills and PGA. I love the Dinah Shore course, but not
  15. Played Eagle Falls last week. Course in great condition. Also look at Underpar.com for some pretty good options. I played The S club and Nicklaus Courses at very good deals. Also Andulusia, but had hookup for that private course. Super nice. When you fly in , if you look out the window , you'll see the number of courses there. Its awesome. I love the palm trees and snow capped peaks surrounding you. Very, very, pretty area of the country. Enjoy.
  16. Just signed up to the Travel membership and played in Phoenix 2 weeks ago, and last weekend in Palm Springs Anthem- Pesimmon and Seville in Phoenix, along with Veraddo -Founders, Phoenix CC, and CC at Johnson Ranch. Mission Hills, Palmer course in Palm Springs. ( Also Played Andulsia which was terrific, and Eagle Falls, which I like a lot) The travel desk were super helpful to get tee times. Everyone and courses were very nice and accommodating. One of the members I played with at Seville was not very happy and he believed it diminished his membership and even felt his membership costs were to
  17. The clubcorp travel membership does not allow for rounds before noon on weekends. BOO! Otherwise I would have played both there. I went to golfnow and teeoff to find am rounds, and decided on Veraddo due to timing more than anyhting else, (Plus reviews, haven't play, and research here). I am, however, really excited to play those I've booked and hooked my way into. Remember, it's going to be 9 below here in MN. My wife approved ( she's in San Fran on business), I'm am lucky guy by any standard.
  18. Yeah, it's some mileage for sure. My concern was veraddo at 7:41 and anthem at 12:37, moved it to 1:30. It is why I booked Johnson Ranch, fairly close to Seville. I know nothing of those courses. Ive played a lot of the ones that come up in the threads, but haven't been there in maybe 6-7 yrs. I didn't look at airport to Wickenburg, but figured I could get there 3 hours from landing. If anyone wants to join in, I'm open to that or other options for Friday. Not sure if I'm paired up at other tee times. 61yrs, act 45, play to about a 10-12. Enjoy meeting new folks and playing new courses to a
  19. So, heading out of the frozen tundra here in Mn and going to Phoenix this weekend. Friday, one round, undetermined yet, land at 940 am, so only one round. Wickenberburg at 12:40 for $122 or Camelback-Padre at 1:40 for $99 ?? Sat- morning Golf Club at Johnson Ranch afternoon -Seville Golf and CC Sunday - morning Veraddo- founders afternoon- Anthem Golf and CC Joined the Clubcorp travel thing and trying it out, hence the seville and anthem courses. Cart fee only, $20. will book something later tonight or could just wait for hot deals, but...
  20. I'm there from 24th to 5th of Jan. If you want to add an extra, PM me and we can trade info. Gordy.
  21. check out underpar.com Some nice pricing on two player rounds. Many of them good thru the holidays with little restrictions.
  22. On no one's list. I totally enjoyed Winter Creek outside of Oklahoma City. Not much travel so far this year. But that was an unexpected find.
  23. Sorry to have missed out on the festivities, but would love a re-cap/ update on your trip up here.?
  24. What are your tee times? I might be i town and might be able to squeeze in a round or two, if you have room for a fourth.
  25. Now this one is bit out of the norm..., but a 30 detour out of Des Moines, go play The Harvester in Rhodes, Iowa. Great course. then 4.5 hours to the Twin Cities. Its half way, play and then the non-drivers can sleep on the balance of the drive. Its my go-to for early season before the snow melt. Just a thought for wanting to get a round in on drive day.
