Alabama traveling group schedule info for fall...


Recommended Posts

If interested, please sign up in other thread
To all,

We've received a good early response to our traveling golf group for those living in Alabama or close enough to drive into Alabama. Enough response, actually, that I can put out a very unofficial and VERY premature "schedule" through the end of the year.

As of right now, we have 8 or 9 people interested in playing. We would like to get a few more. Not everyone can play every time we go out, and this is not a tournament or official tour, so there are no expectations that someone show up every time, most of the time or even some of the time.

I've started the schedule off with two courses per month. Through early December, all rounds will be played on Sundays so not as to conflict with the college football schedule here. After the football season is over, rounds will revert to Saturdays unless the people signed up for that date agree in concert to move the date.

As posted in the other thread, the rules are very sparse, and they are:
1) Have fun,
2) Gambling is allowed, but please be respectful of those who choose not to participate,
3) Have fun. This is just a bunch of guys/gals looking for a round.
4) Also, please consider driving out of your local geographical area once in a while, and you'll find others will return the favor.

Here's what I've come up with so far:

SEPTEMBER
Sunday, Sept 11 -- RTJ Highland Oaks, Dothan: I'm making a reservation for a single foursome right now but I do have five people that have expressed an interest. If I continue to get interest, I'll expand the reservation to two tee times. We're looking at playing all 27 holes and teeing off at 10:04 a.m., which should get us off the course no later than 5 p.m. This course is approximately 3-3.5 hours from Mobile and Birmingham and 2.5 hours from Montgomery.

OCTOBER
Sunday, Oct 2 -- Capstone Club, Tuscaloosa: POSTPONED.

Sunday, Oct 16 -- Highland Park Golf Course, Birmingham, 10:03 a.m. CONFIRMED: We have a tee time for four golfers reserved at this course at the moment. This course is approximately 4-4.5 hours from Mobile and 1.5 hours from Montgomery.

NOVEMBER
Sunday, Nov 13 -- RTJ Shoals Schoolmaster, Muscle Shoals: This course is approximately 3-3.5 hours from Birmingham, 4-4.5 hours from Montgomery and 6-7 hours from Mobile.

DECEMBER
Sunday, Dec 10 -- RTJ Magnolia Grove, Crossings Course, Mobile: POSTPONED. We will try to get around to this course after the holidays. Too much going on with too many people's schedules at the moment to keep this one here.

Here is the complete list of courses that have been suggested:

RTJ Hampton Cove, Huntsville
Gunter's Landing, Guntersville

Update for the Sept. 11 date in Dothan:

Looks like we'll have one foursome for that date. As of Tuesday, Sept. 6, we still have one vacancy. If you are interested in joining up as a single, we have a spot. If anyone else wants to play that day, I'll try to put together another foursome. Please indicate interest in this thread and I'll contact you via PM.

Update to Oct. 2 date in Tuscaloosa:

Two people have canceled. Only 2 people remain interested. If I can't get a full foursome by Wednesday, this one will be postponed. The Oct. 16 date in Birmingham is in the same general vicinity, 45 minutes up the road from Tuscaloosa.

Update on The Shoals:

Due to having 5 interested players, we have reserved two tee times, 10:40 and 10:50 a.m. These will have us going off almost directly in front of alandennis' group. Unfortunately, we will have to split into a group of three and a group of two at the clubhouse. They would not let me make a time for a fivesome.

The way I see it, we have two choices: Either we tee off and then pull together somewhere on the course, being mindful of our speed, or one of you guys can invite a sixth player to join us.

In our two groups are:

JessN16
Boots McRae
bogeypro
RMBama
clevername

We have room for 3 more people in our two groups. You guys can feel free to invite someone, but please post in this thread if you are intending to do so.

Another word for skins game...i have a feeling at least a few from my group are gonna want to [b]play the back tees[/b] even though no one should but we will see

Your already inside my head. Think that is a few yds short of 8000 yds. Takes a real man (or a real good driver and 3 wood) to score well from that distance.
