Where are you playing tomorrow - Chicago (Round2)


Recommended Posts

... 36, nice! Some complain about par 3's being the same length which is irrelevant to my opinion of the course. I teed off from the back tees on the 3's and the drops were truly spectacular. We don't get those kind of elevation changes in Chicago so I really enjoyed all 3 of those par 3's from around 220yds.

The Old Course. #500.   ![](https://dl.dropbox.com/s/54saiaga0udi4qv/20190424_124620.jpg "")

Been scoring in the low 70s for some time, but I had never broke 70 before. Today was the day that I finally did at Klein Creek. My putter had been hot for some time and it came through for me to get

I played the Preserve at noon on the 4th. The course is in great shape. I played really well on the front, 37. Then lost three balls on the back to shoot 46, ouch. They have to add some water coolers

Back to reality. Back to the cold. I finished posting my pics and final thoughts on the LA trip (http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/1744840-southern-california-trip-report-february-2019/).

 

Next stop, Scotland. I added 6 new courses this trip, and have reach the 497 mark. I'm on target to play the Old Course as #500.

What happens if you are at 499 and get an invite to play Chicago GC or Butler?! :D

Lol. Either wouldn't be a bad 500th. However, conditions in early April would be spotty at best, so I'd likely take a pass. I know, real world problems.

 

Actually, I'll head to St Andrews at 497. I'm booked at the Castle course on Tuesday, and St Andrews on Wednesday. I'll be looking to book #498 in the area for the Monday. If someone offered Chicago CC as #500, I don't think I could make it back to Chicago in time after playing the Castle course.

I am staying at the Golf Inn in St Andrews. Had some family and friends stay there last year and said it was a perfect location. I found a pretty good price for its location as well.

Thanks! They had one room left for 169 a night, so I went ahead and reserved it. I'll look elsewhere, and cancel if needed, but I don't think I'm going to find a whole lot cheaper at this point.

 

Lol. I like how they list the room as "King or Twin Room", but the choices for beds are double or twin.

Kingsbarns ~$500 with Caddie/tip?

 

It's £240.00 for the round in April, and £55.00 for the caddie (plus tip), so I'm looking at ~$420. Of course after Brexit the pound will likely plummet, and it'll be closer to $300.

I am considering a trip to Scotland in late July (the only time I can go). Never been. It would be me and my wife who does not golf, but I would be allowed to get several rounds in. Not sure if I want to do the famous/pricey courses or go to some off the beaten path. Have you been before?

Did you get out of paying it upfront?

No, this is my first trip across the pond. I'm sure you could find a few cheaper courses to play on short notice. As a single though you're options are limited. You could always show up early on the day of play, and hope for a cancellation.

 

I did not have to make a payment for Kingsbarns. I was a bit surprised.

Well, hope its a nice trip. You'll have to report back on your experience. As far as playing as a single and options being limited, do you mean that most places wont let you reserve in advance?

Right. I tried booking rounds on St Andrew's New and Jubilee courses, but they told me no because they don't book singles.

T minus 3 days till Florida trip. Tallest midget contest, aka Polonia Open. Can’t wait to chip on the Bermuda grass (said no one ever). There will be around 130 players from all over US, Canada, and Europe (mostly Poland). We’ll be playing 2 private courses - The fountains CC in Lake Worth and Indian Spring in Boynton Beach. I wasn’t going to go this year, but wife “insisted” I go - she’s definitely up to something.

Chit load of Maltbys - TS2 irons, KE4 TC Driver & 4 wood, TSW 54* & 60* wedges.

the GS at Rosemont was a good time to catch up with friends.

found my new shoes and a decent pair of foul weather pants.

didn't seem to have the usual amount of better apparel as in years past.

saw three rainsuits in large and never heard of the brand. Mc-something.

two sellers didn't have any.

 

Golf Digest didn't have a booth and their free mag was a nice perk for the ticket price.

we gave all the free golf coupons to our guy from Lake County who is recovering from his hit with leukemia.

 

Sand Valley was represented. nice booklet to drool over and maybe plan a trip with.

spoke to the GM of Sunset Valley. said they may extend resident rates to NBK players while our course is being renovated.

 

travel destinations giving out bags of tees and poker chips.

Western Golf Association booth had some great driver and putter covers from last years BMW at Arominink for dirt cheap.

the CDGA gift for renewal was a tube of balls, tees and glove.

 

one of our guys found the shaft he's been looking for - so he could match his driver and three wood.

seller agreed to break down a Cobra fairway to make the deal. Tensei something. he was quite pleased.

 

and of course - the bagpipes.

... Bummer. I wish I could brag about the Phoenix sunshine but we had snow and sleet 2 days ago. Locals say it is the coldest winter they can remember. Jan/Feb has been a bust so far. Not Chicago of course but not normal Arizona weather either.

the short putts hit at the GS yesterday to win a worthless prize were the closest we've been to the game.

my pal took fifteen minutes at the indoor mat display area just to see if he still had a stroke.

 

can you imagine the Golf Center of Des Plaines today with the 30 plus MPH wind?

So I signed up for CDGA membership and posted a couple scores from Scottsdale. For whatever reason, they show up in "rounds played" but they aren't showing up for my handicap. And it says 0 year to date rounds posted. Anyone know anything about this? This app and website is complete trash compared to the GHIN handicap app/website, just awful. When it is "in" season do you have to write out the courses you played and find the slope/rating and manually put that in as well, or is that an off season thing? That is archaic if so.
