  1. Cherokee Town & CC will be north of $100k, might have even been $200k at one time with dues for the year over $10k or $15k. You'll need about 6 sponsors and then sit on a waiting list for a couple of years.
  2. Thank you all for helping me. I really appreciate it. My Dad had a set somewhat like these. I don't know the specifics. I used to steal a club out of his bag in the garage and load my pockets with balls and go hit shots around the school yard field. There were a number of occasions he then went and played and found himself missing a 7 iron. After enough of those incidents, I finally got my own set of clubs when I was about 9. I wanted to get a set of these for the memories and just really did know much about MacGregor irons. Again, you guys are top notch. Thanks for all the help. I think I might pick these up. All the best, Jim
  3. Thanks for that info too Howard. Dang. I never knew that formula. Thanks for sharing with me and teaching me Howard. This info is gold. Thank you sir.
  4. oh boy, I fear these, stamped "M2", based on the above are probably regular flex? I'm looking for stiff. Also, they're the black ceramic faces, which I don't think is the colorchrome, although I don't know a lot about the MacGregors.
  5. Oh wow. That's priceless info dejaid! Thank you. Was mostly after the flex. I did get some pictures. I don't know what the model is on the head. I never really noticed. I'll have to go back and look. These are the pix I rounded up.
  6. Holy smokes that is a great chart of information. Thank you Howard. I will use this to see if I can diagnose, but certainly hang on to it for the rest of my life. Thank you immensely.
  7. Wondering if anyone might be able to tell me what type of shaft would be in a set of old MacGregor CF4000's Colorchrome irons, early 60's with no label on the shaft itself. I have no pictures but have been informed there are 15 steps in the shaft. Can you tell by that? Thanks in advance for any and all help!
  8. Awesome. Thanks guys. And apologies if I put this in the wrong group. Much appreciated for the guidance.

  10. Anybody know what happened to this track? It's been bought and sold a number of times over the years and shuttered about a year and a half ago. Last I heard it was up for auction. Anyone know anything about it? I believe it was a Mike Young design. It was a challenging layout. Conditions were hit or miss with frequency on the latter, but it was a really good layout. Would be a shame to see that one go. If you live in the city like me, it was a breeze to shoot down there in 20 minutes or so.
  11. I am a member at Pinetree, sending you a PM Could you PM me as well? I would love to know some of the specifics of Pinetree.
  12. I live right downtown and have considered joining Mirror Lake/Chapel Hills. I'm somewhat leery of the Club Corp model, but you get what you pay for, and from what it seems, is in fact a good value. A recent inquiry revealed that they have a discounted "intown" membership at a greatly reduced rate which, means that if you live inside the perimeter (I-285), you get a much reduced monthly rate for full golf, clubhouse, and facility usage. This is very tempting for me as it is a 35 minute drive out there and on the other side of town from where I work, so I would only be able to use it on weekends really. I mention this because if you're younger, there is not a lot going on in Villa Ricca. It's VERY quiet out there. If you appreciate some night life, restaurants and entertainment, living in town and procuring the type of membership above might work well for you. Having played out there a couple of times I can tell you this: The 2 Mirror Lake courses are fun and based on what it sounds like your game is, will be just fine as there are multiple sets of tees that can stretch it to around 7000 yds or shorten it to more of the 6000 neighborhood. They've always seemed to keep it in above average condition and I've never been disappointed there. Practice area is more than acceptable where you can hit full drives and enough hitting stations. I can't remember if there was a short game area but I think so. Have not played Chapel Hills. There are a couple of services (one by Golf Now) that will offer discounted vouchers a few times a year to play there and check out the place as a member for a day. That's how I got on. Every time I was paired up with members. They were always nice, accomodating and seemed very easy going. Also seemed to be on the younger side, around 30-50. Didn't really see anyone older than that out there in my limited experience. One time was labor day weekend and the large pool at Mirror Lake was jammed with families, kids, young adults, a DJ and poolside bar. It was definitely hopping and the parking lot was so full people had parked on the grass. Hope some of that insight helps. Oh, The Frog is definitely worth a look too. It's a great Fazio track. Semi-Private. Not as much play as the above. I don't believe any lockers and there are pools away from the course on the complex, but I think it's for HOA members only, not included with golf membership. But again, living out there...I just couldn't do it. There's not much out there.
  13. You might want to check out Reynolds Plantation/Lake Oconee tracks. It's on I-20 on the way to Augusta and all are great courses kept in fine shape. I think the gem Cuscowilla is now private. I've played the Harbor Club many times and it's very enjoyable. Not sure if they jack up the rates for Master's week. I assume they may...seems everything gets jacked up that week, even the aforementioned shoe show establishments mentioned above.
  14. North of 50 and 700pm Wow, north of 50k for Dunwoody. And if I read correctly somewhere, you called or visited them. Thx for the info.
