MD/DC/VA Golfers - Twelve Monkeys Mental Divergence


Recommended Posts

Had what has to be one of my most frustrating rounds ever during my Sunday morning group yesterday. If you told me that after playing basically no golf for 5 months I'd shoot 75 in early June, I probably would have been all in. But I went out in 33 (-2) with three birdies making everything I looked at. Came home in 42 (+7) and my longest made putt was probably a foot. Seemingly lost all speed control on my first putts, absolutely a completely mess. I absolutely blame Tex for getting me to try the terrible new Callaway ball.

 

j/k the ball actually was pretty decent. Seemed to scuff up a little easier than I'd like but it was pretty good. Fact is between the Chromesoft X, the TP5X and the Prov1x, they are all great golf balls. I think the switch back to the blade putter is what made all the difference, I just feel like outside of...15 feet or so, I have so much more feel with it than using a mallet *

 

 

 

* and yes Fabb, this will probably change tomorrow

With great regret, I am posting today to inform you all that our friend GMen has passed away. His death was unexpected. I have no details and am awaiting info on funeral services and how best to send

This was my Version 2, 36 hours of fridge fermentation and a 75/25 mozzarella and provolone blend. I forgot I had a vented pan and this cooked up in about 7 minutes in a 425 degree convection cycle.

Agree with the outside layer. 
 

Well buddy if you are going to crap your pants do it with a 33 front.

In two weeks, I'm spending the weekend in VA. Does anyone have a recommendation between Shenandoah Valley Golf Club and Bowling Green Country Club? Which is better course?

I played in a Thanksgiving scramble at Bowling Green CC's North Course last year.  It was an ok course and would be a fine place to smack the ball around if you're staying in the area.  It was not really worth the drive to and from to play in for a 1 day scramble.  YMMV

Both are pretty comparable to me, and resemble one another.  Pretty straight forward, and not too much thrills.  It sounds dumb, but it feels more like a giant meadow they cut into a course with varying lengths, than an actual designed course with legit diff grasses?  Reminds me of like Prince William GC  

 

Id try and grab a time at Blue Ridge Shadows if one is available, its more challenging and visually more stimulating, and usually one of if not the top options right in that area.

I've played the South course the last two years in a work tournament. Agreed that its a boring course, but the price is great and the conditions have been solid both times I've played it. Definitely comparable to Prince William Golf Course in layout but would say that the South course is probably in better shape.

I haven't played Bowling Green but would echo what bubbagump said about Blue Ridge Shadows.  Interesting course, conditions usually decent or better, and price is good (at least a couple of years ago).

Agree.  I think we’re going to cancel.  Stupid rain on scheduled day off.  First world problems.

 

As the resident EPP expert, I can safely advise that it DOES NOT drain well. My expert opinion is you should cancel.

And I can't believe all these years working in DC and I've never played EPP. I've run around it many times though haha. 

Wow - that’s amazing. Are you back in the city at all? Let me know if you want to get out for a round there during the week. I can likely make it work with a bit of notice.

Wow!  I haven't been to East Potomac Park in many, many years.  I never thought it would survive but apparently there are a number of people that still play there.  I used to play there a lot when I was a kid, back when they had a double decker driving range before the days of Top Golf.  🙂

My club has an event at Hampshire Greens tomorrow. CPO most likely which wears out the OG's and since I don't go off until the second to last group it is going to be a 5+ hr round I bet.

Luckily HG drains very well.

Love the views, location and the concept of EPP. Definitively not for elitist country club types like altsean, City, OCgolfrick and misplaced Texan here. 

Played there twice and enjoyed both rounds. First round was with THE EPP expert here after rains. Two fairways had 4” or more of water. Lots of condoms, toys and other paraphernalia  around. One green was closed. Cool clubhouse architecture and the multi tiered range is huge. The range feels weirdly claustrophobic on the lower level and I shanked all my attempts at range warmup.

Definitely a must play in the DC area.

Verbatim recent text transcript:

 

@ALTSean Hey guys, I got 2 spots at Langston this weekend, want to play?

 

@Ocgolfrick New phone, who dis?

 

@aiyyer This is Mr. Aiyyer's valet.  Please hold while I get Mr. Aiyyer.

 

@Ocgolfrick Did you lose a bet and are being forced to play Langston?

 

@aiyyer This is still Mr. Aiyyer's valet, he is one his way.  He recently returned from a vacation to play Royal New Kent and the Golden Horseshoe.  My Aiyyer has a tee time this weekend at The Worthington Manor.  Mr. Aiyyer only plays the finest of courses.  

 

@Ocgolfrick Are your friends homeless?  Do you need Bethesda Rick to loan you a few dollars?

 

@aiyyer This is Mr. Aiyyer.  My valet said you rang.  I just got back from a golf trip down to Williamsburg.  I really needed a golf trip in order to decompress from all the golf I am playing at home.  I find that a golf trip really clears my head and allows me to focus better on my local golf at The Manor.  

 

@ALTSean Soooo, are you guys a "no" for Langston?
