Sounds fun but be prepared to spend 3x what you normally would for that round.

Only in the Augusta area, or out near say Lake Oconee area.

Around town the prices are the same for the most part.

Ah, I lived in Augusta for right at 10 years and haven't golfed on Master's weekend since I moved so wasn't sure. Count me in though, always enjoy golfing with fellow WRXers. I am in Dallas, GA so the only (nice) public course near me is The Frog; but I am willing to travel...somewhat, haha.

I don't care much for Echelon. Course is nice but I think that is more of a, "take a buddy here who thinks he's a pro and watch him struggle" course than a place for a group to have fun and play a skins game where more than 2 people come away with some money. The Manor is just as nice if not better and is more playable.

Echelon is okay, but it's more hyped up than anything I think.

UGA course is pretty playable though.. Better deal, IMO.
[/quote]


The elevation to me seem great on that course but All I have to go on is pics.. So FatC1TY you would just play UGA? My issue is we are playing on the way up to washington(Thats were we rented a house) and UGA would mean we have a 45 min drive after the round. Would you suggest something else in that area that would be better than UGA?

Thanks again for your advice

It's been a while since I've played in that area. Echelon is way out of the way if you are going to be in Washington. Thats out in the WOODS where you are staying.

Ideally, the BEST bet would be to head south west towards I-20, which if you are flying in, would be on the way to Washington. Off I-20 is Lake Oconee. I'm sure you've heard of Reynolds Plantation and Cuscowilla. Both of those courses are Top rated resort courses. PLENTY of golf in that area. It's expensive for sure. Caddies, and resort type stuff, but PURE courses. Coore and Crenshaw did Cuscowilla and it's a really, really great course. Great set of caddies too. Reynolds has the Ritz Carlton, and the TMAG Kingdom, as well as I think 5-7 courses or something like that.

There is the Harbor Club as well down there, haven't played it but looks nice.

Prices... I have no idea. Alot of the players, as well as their families will be in that area, as it's roughly an hour or so from August, so they will be there end of March, 1st week of April, taking it all in, and relaxing before heading into Augusta.

LOL I know(Woods comment) But we rented a 5000 SF house for 120$ a night:) I looked into all the courses you name dthis week and the cheapest was Harbor at 160$ PP Which is dumb sense this week its 69$... Like everything else in life they are taking advantage of the Master Week... Also we are driving from Baton Rouge so we will be coming up I85 into ATL.. I'm game for any course along the way from ATL thats under 100$ bux.

Okay then.. Lets see..

You want to play on the way up? Anything EAST of Atlanta will destroy your wallet for the week of the Masters.

If you want some elevation, some southern hospitality, and better yet, a design by Billy Fuller, the old super at AGN, then stop by Coweta Club, formerly known as Arbor Springs..

It's in Newnan, literally, 4 minutes off an exit on I-85. Great clubhouse, semi private course. The range is junk, IMO, but the course is really nice, great layout, save for maybe 2 holes which are stupid as hell and un fair. Plenty of uphill and down hill, plenty of yardage gaps and massive amounts of risk reward.

If you are coming with a bunch of 100+ shooters, I'd advise to PLAY FORWARD and put your ego's in check. 7100 from the back I think, and not a flat lie in the place unless you really aim for it.

This course is really, really close to the interstate, easy exit for lunch/dinner or whatever have you. And I know for the fact the price won't be adjusted because of the Masters. It's roughly 30 minutes south of downtown ATL, and once you get into town, not many choices as the city is really spread out. Prices will vary, and once you pass ATL, not much for golf, and what there is, during your time will be booked solid, and will jack the prices up for all the out of towners who want to play while heading to the Masters.

I haven't played UGA, but I agree with your sentiment about Echelon. If you're driving the ball well, the course really isn't that difficult or especially long for that matter.

If there's room for 1 more, please send me a PM. I could add myself as a single, or even provide a group if available. I have several friends that are members here on the WRX that would enjoy to play. (We vary in handicaps from 0-8) I don't particularly care where we play if I have so notice, but I agree with some of the others in that Ecshelon's front 9 is nice but the back has everything but a clowns-mouth, and ferris wheel. The Manor would be a good suggestion, but wherever. Lemme know. Thanks.

Driver - Taylormade Sim Max 9* Tensei White

Wedges - Titleist Vokey SM8, w/ TT tour issued X100 120's

Balls - Mostly Taylormade Lethal, or TP5, and sometimes Titleist AVS

I'd be game, but I'm playing Friday morning early enough to watch the tourney at lunch in the clubhouse and then head home.

Anyone game to hit the Frog one weekend, or Coweta Club? Coweta Club is in awesome shape. Greens are really, really nice.

I'm near Emory but I'd definitely in interested in playing the Frog.

I am up for having a regular 4 some (or groups of 4 some's) once or twice a month. If anyone is better at putting stuff together and sticking to it than I am, feel free to take the helm and create some sort of spread sheet we can use for a dog-fight like list of players.

We can alternate where we go every month so no one person has to always drive and can maybe keep each other's hoeing to a minimum, haha.

I'd game for that. I'm hanging around an 8 'cap right now, so not really killin' it, but I can chop it around the course.

I'm up for a round at the Frog. Usually cheaper after 12 noon I think. I'm not good at getting things together, but willing to mix it up and play with new people.

Yeah, the Frog is $40 from 1-3pm M-Th and $27 after 3pm. Conversely, before 10am is also $40 M-Th.
