  1. Crazy to think that Stow held a USGA Championship at some point (PubLinks in 95)
  2. Congrats on your beautiful walker. Thing is a beaut!
  3. Played there 2 weeks ago, in decent condition considering it was late January
  4. Interestingly and apropos of nothing, the Trouper 2.0 no longer shows up the Jones website. Other bags say "sold out", but I wonder why they no longer have this on site, with at least a sold out notification? Separately given all of the "sold out" notices, I wonder if Jones has done such a good job training customers to wait for the Black Friday sale (myself included) that they're truly hurting their business.
  5. I picked up the carbon for my wife and so far so good. I have some issues with it when I took it for a test driver, but have issues with all bags. I played with a guy who had the craz-e-lite and he liked it. However, bag looked like it had an odd bend in it where the straps met the middle part of the bag. Made me nervous that there was too much pressure there and could be a break point. Have never seen a bag bend that way before. my son has an old 2.5, which was very light but the straps were borderline worthless. From what I read, I think they’ve largely fixed tha
  6. Have only played Torresdale and loved it. However, I would 100% pick National. National appears so UNIQUE relative to other courses you could / would play. My buddy who is a member sends me pics of National and it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in the area Now, if I were playing a course 3 days per week, I’d definitely pick Torresdale
  7. Pinehurst might be a bit on the outside of your 5 hour drive-time, but not too much. Benefit of significant housing rental inventory and LOTS of golf options that aren't UBER expensive (although still $100 / round). Plus for the die-hard golfers, they may be able to get onto PH #2 or #4 with proper planning. Better weather potential than other options and improving drinking scene
  8. One more reason to think about the cape - treehouse just announced they’re opening a spot in sandwich!
  9. The immediate thought is Turning Stone in NY. Multiple courses (although they are off-site) plus the benefit of the casino right there - would be a fun spot for a group of folks with the added benefit of gambling at night. Another option would be Cape Cod. There are a couple of high-end lodging options with built-in access to golf. Wequasset gets you access to Cape Cod National and Ocean Edge has its own golf course as well. Then there are other options both with in a reasonable (sub 15 minute) drive from both resorts to get 36 holes. If you don't want to over-due the lodging

  11. There is a flier at Nehoiden at the starter’s shack that basically says for “Club Repairs, Call or text Pat”. I won’t post his number here, but PM me if you want and I can share. I can’t speak to Pat’s work, but sounds like a good old school option
  12. I would swap out Olde Barnstable for Captain's Port. Part of that is personal preference, but also, Olde Barney is probably only 15 minutes from when you cross the Sagamore so makes for an easier drive that morning. The other thought is you could do both Captains Courses instead of the Dennis courses if you're nervous around aeration (although I admittedly don't know when Captains aerated)
  13. They've not done the public thing for a number of years. However, they've been receptive in the past to a pro calling them
  14. If you're only doing one day in Augusta, I would gravitate towards Tuesday for practice round if you have the choice. Wednesday is a bit different with the par 3, and I just find it not that exciting - unless you want to see Jack and Gary and other old guys let their grand kids play. Tuesday everyone has their game face on and everyone plays at least 9 holes. Monday is decent, but a bit quieter. I am slightly biased, but I think Pinehurst is one of the absolute best places to play golf in the US. It's a very manageable trip from Augusta (~3.5 hours) and there are more courses a
