  1. You caused me to re-read this entire thread from the beginning. A couple of things to note reading through all of the comments - Franklin CC did complete their new range and it might be the nicest one I’ve visited in the Boston area other than Old Sandwich. The thing is HUGE. Kind of surprising that land went unused for as long as it did by Franklin. BTW, that course remains sneaky hard (at least for me) - Brian Lynch (who was mentioned as the “best GM in the Boston area”) is apparently the new GM at Wellesley. Their last guy retired. Reports are very positiive
  2. One addition that hasn’t been mentioned on this thread is Cape Cod Country Club in Falmouth. Is rumored to be closing in a couple of years as the ownership wants to turn it into a solar farm. Course was apparently designed by Devereux Emmet and has some really fun holes. Given its future appears short lived, make sure you get out this season in case ownership is successful with their transition to solar
  3. Hit up Cape Cod Country Club in Falmouth on Saturday. They still had us playing on temp tees, but otherwise course was in very good shape for late March. Fun course with an awesome volcano hole (#14) and a very crazy par 4 18 that plays ~260 yards.
  4. Crazy to think that Stow held a USGA Championship at some point (PubLinks in 95)
  5. Congrats on your beautiful walker. Thing is a beaut!
  6. Played there 2 weeks ago, in decent condition considering it was late January
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. One more reason to think about the cape - treehouse just announced they’re opening a spot in sandwich!
  12. 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

  14. 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
