  1. Pardon my ignorance but the catering, is it through SV or a offsite group?
  2. I got in early on the ZX7's and love them (since late Feb). That noted I have been looking at getting the 4Iron maybe a 3 iron in the ZX5 but I can not find if you can order a single clubs online. Anyone know if you can? Sorry for my ignorance if it is there....
  3. 8.....also do Cradle at night with the music and some drinks.
  4. Tough one.... If just golf then Sand Valley. that is all there really is to do in that area. Plus as noted by other members you can hit up some other great courses in the area. If looking for more then golf, then Sea Island is a better option for dinning, entertainment, etc. The golf is still good in Sea Island too depending on what you play and if you have access to private courses.
  5. Best in the area? Top in state? Nationally ranked? etc....?? There are a number of "decent" private courses in our area but many are not better then some of the local tracks yet they charges 50% to double the local rates....because it is "private".... if that is the case I would blow it off. (just me....) The big question not answered is if you think you can get on this course pretty easy another way and not sure of the person then don't reach out.
  6. Its round $160 right? Some friends in Chicago say the same for the fee.
  7. Close but its Prairie Dunes. Is Cottonwood still open? Edit: I just read Cottonwood closed last summer.
  8. Thinking about this thread I know there are some courses that can play really tough but they dont actually have a rating (match play per se). It seems though most courses can play tough if they want them too, just depends on the course conditions its setup too.
  9. Not sure it helps as I suck, but having done both, I would go outdoors all day long. Not that the data numbers per se will be much different Ie: distance, spin, ball speed, etc What I found way different was the actual ball flight once on the range with the new clubs. The ball flight was either way high or way lower then what I expected to see. I started to adjust my setup for what I wanted the ball to do and that made other aspects worse. The last fitter (Phoenix area) said it is because most golfers know their standard ball flight (comfort window he called it) and we move the ball location to lower or raise flight as needed. So if our "standard" flight changes from what we are used to it messes with our visual side and then frustration kicks in...which it did with me. It must work as the driver I got is DEAD on right out of the box. Edit: Downside is the balls. There are clubs that use titleist balls and I went to one of those place to get fitted.
  10. Par 70 Gold: 7068 yds 75.5/148 Blue: 6656 yds. 74.9/145 White: 6119 yds. 72.3/141 *Women from white tee list 76.9/137 There is combo tees and rating scales accordingly
  11. Get your doctor to prescribe Meloxicam I nearly dropped at Bandon as Dancin can attest. We both figured I pinched a nerve in my back. Turned out an under lying issue related to COVID I had in Feb....go FIG..! Anyway I had never heard of it but damn it works like a 24 hour Aleve.
  12. As noted above it's just golf Honestly If its a TOP 50 course or a course your not sure you will be able to get on again you should always take the invite, you never know if those invites come around again. Most common reason not to: ......Top private clubs charge a decent $$ to play with a member/more without and some people regardless of course are not sure they want to pay these fees or honestly cant which is legit. .......When is the invite to play and if your available. A lot times with life/family today its hard to match up avaialbe dates it seems. ..... OR If you got a "vibe" it was more then golf well that is up to you
  13. Should be good soon, or better be, I am not good at sitting around LOL
  14. Glad your back. I have been out technically for near a month but feeling 75-80% so going to go back at it, but a bit slower LOL. I know Steadman group is great. Don't know the name listed but they did my ACL replacement and rehab training. It was before they became part of UC Health.
  15. Appreciate the recommendations. Will look into them.
  16. Amazing / Amazingly challenging course in Kansas Edit: Sorry did not take a lot of pictures as I was to focused making sure I stayed out of the "gunch"... Edit2: Been asked what is the "white" looking stuff on the tee box in the first photo. Cotton from the trees. Totally messed with wife allergies LOL
  17. So "currently" working through some F'd up medical aspects that came forward last month at Bandon..... never sick until you go to the doctor JK Having had the last 3 weeks away got me thinking of seeing a instructor. Wondering who most recommend?
  18. Yea I fear the smoke might be an issue but will be nice to be home for a few days.
  19. I had a number of shafts too for a long time
  20. Will be playing it in 3 weeks roughly, hoping for the same weather. I also love Wilderness Club, when I go home to see family I always play WC.
  21. This September, you camping out for 14 days prior to golfing? I know at the end of March this year Ireland lifted some restrictions and but held them for certain "high risk" countries but on the website it still notes a 14 day mandatory quarantine? Maybe the embassy website has not been updated? Are U.S. citizens required to quarantine? Yes The Government of Ireland requires all travelers (except if your journey originates in Northern Ireland) to quarantine for 14 days, with very limited exceptions. EDIT: I found an article that notes on July 19th that Ireland is allowing American tourists to come and only show proof of vaccination now.
  22. Payed it last year twice and probably will not go back. Its a fun track but both times last year but both rounds over 5 hour. So unless you get off really early I assume its the norm out there. We played around noon or so both times.
  23. You can do either the room or directly on your CC when you check in for the round of golf.
  24. Not sure what is wrong with people today. It is crazy how calm everyone is though.
