  1. Faldo is more challenging for sure, both are decent but if you can do the Faldo. If I recall right the Faldo has 2 times maybe 3 times more traps then the Palmer.
  2. WHAT.... well this thread has gone down hill fast Let me know when you hit the Midwest area.
  3. Last year was easy if you book it decently early. If you book weeks out for a group of 4... tough I am sure. Single maybe not.
  4. Its shocking the demand is there, or to me. Good course but sure not on my list of courses I think of when looking for a tee time.
  5. Sad but true.... I looked at this deal a number of times and always passed but now it has become cost effective compared to playing say MC w/cart or GV w/cart. Speaking of GV.... when did that place become $100 with a cart.............. Edit: should note, I have not played GV in forever so maybe it has been that way for awhile.?
  6. Have not seen any. Honestly does not seem to be that good of deals in general on golf stuff
  7. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE
  8. Hey on the bright side it is cold, dry and gloomy here.... you dont want the sun, sand and warm beach Hope your youngest feels better
  9. Epic Golf = Ponzi Scheme. * or sure seems like it based on reviews
  10. Given the increase in play this year and last year in golf (thank you Covid) is your club looking at increasing the guest fee rates or limiting the number of guests now? IE: Standard 18 hole guest rate but the replay rate is typically half. Looking to increase the replay rate to 75-80% or to full rate for replay to see if they cam reduce the extra rounds by member guests. I should note the club already has in place a max number of visits allowed per member guest. Ie: Unlimited per se different guest but each specific person is only allowed X times in a calendar year. I understand it honestly as it does eat up a number of tee times for the members but it does add a lot revenue. Wondering what other clubs are seeing or doing.
  11. LOL I just drove by it this morning. Can not tell but it looks like it will be pretty nice track....again looking from afar.
  12. Point noted.... but does not answer how you got on unaccompanied? I know someone at CGC but have not spoken to him in years. Edit: Sorry did see its a different person who posted
  13. Interesting. Was pretty sure they only allowed accompanied guest?
  14. Very impressive. Checked Denver and did very well. The Denver City and County courses did not show tee times but online there was, that noted they an odd system.
  15. Could hit up Chambers Bay on way down from Seattle.
  16. Nice. Great putters. I picked the up newest model a few months ago (think they revised them this year?) in the same color. Bag marking in same location too and nothing else. Simple and clean. The extra pockets compared to the older models is a great addition. I really like the small added pocket right above the ball area (Byron tag pocket) or at least that is where I keep balls. Edit: Though the few added pockets make is 2.8 lbs now LOL.
  17. Sun Mountain 2.5+ Been a great bag Edit: I used Ping Hoofer prior
  18. As to "illegal" I was really wondering this too so asked a few attorneys I play with. The only charge they could think of was "potentially" identity theft (harm to pro the impersonated) which they both noted would be really tough to prove as they did not in said act financially harm this person BUT there could be long term damage aspects that would very hard to prove. As to defraud or obtain value, since the private club agreed to allow them to play (without verification???) for an agreed fee for services no monetary value was obtained or lost by either party involved. I do agree with everyone else, its interesting they were able to pull this off. I would suspect this is not a TOP 100 course as they all pretty much require the email process for validation. It is also very rare to not be unaccompanied at top clubs. Don't get me wrong you can do it if you reach out yourself (if you are a member of a top 100) to try and play said course but the rate is typically double and almost all require a caddie or forecaddie. Better hope that caddie/forecaddie does not know the club you faked LOL
  19. Seems to be a common statement on Deer Creek. Some like it but a majority do not.
  20. Deer Creek is being "reviewed" to "maybe" become development. It has been looked at in many aspects for a while. Financially it has always been borderline and with the tax change / costs to maintain / etc. it is on the cusp of many courses that have gone to the way side. The County has let other areas of it already be rezoned and the plan would be to rezone for commercial / residential.
  21. So not sure posted but why not make every player provide ID (drivers license or equal for each player) when they check in, if they play slow just ban them. If you have it listed on the website / booking / pro shop that all players are expected to keep pace, if you fall behind you have to skip a hole and if you dont will be banned from the course. Sounds harsh, but think how many people would want to play that course. Knowing everyone has the same mind set and the key one courtesy to other ...! You know you dont have to worry about 5 hour rounds.
  22. 100% agree but pretty much every CC list 4 hours for round of play. So as noted prior it comes down to others not giving a ×[#*#_×* about others
  23. The cost for the course was presented at 8 million. Total for all aspects which listed homes was 35 million.. *taken from the presentation they did for the project approval process
  24. Sorry I was being sarcastic. I think Pebble lives on the ocean views is all i was getting at. The course if not on the ocean would be pretty bland. I agree that the original Lido would be complete different for exactly what you state. Sadly we will never know, but it is nice to see someone trying to bring back a part of golf history as close as they can....though in a different area.
