  1. My pleasure! If I can be of any help putting it together, let me know.
  2. Thanks for the great feedback! Yes, hopefully they do get it back on track for the 2019 U.S. Am Best Ball.
  3. Bandon is definitely on my list of places to hit in the next couple of years. It sounds like you get around yourself. That's great! If you need a hand planning this year's winter trip feel free to reach out to me by email address. I'd be more than happy to help out - It's what I do on a daily basis!
  4. Yes, Sea Island is great. We send plenty of groups there. Actually had one group we set up with Sunday Players tickets then 4 nights at Sea Island. From my understanding, they loved it. The nice thing about being in the golf vacation travel business is I typically get to visit resorts so a definite plus to all the long hours!
  5. Hi GolfJunkie302 - We send a lot of groups to the Monterey area, so feel free to reach out if you'd like a hand with the trip. One recommendation I always make to our groups heading to Pebble Beach is Pasatiempo Golf Club - An Alister MacKenzie design, typically ranked #2 or #3 in the state for courses you can play, depending on the golf magazine publication. Every group we send there absolutely loves it, some more than Pebble Beach. Pebble is awesome, especially the views, but from a golf course layout standpoint, Pasatiempo is awesome! Based on what you're looking for, here's what I would consider to be a solid golf vacation itinerary (obviously, not know knowing how many nights you're looking for). Spanish Bay Del Monte Pacific Grove - they call it the 'poor mans' Pebble Beach. Much lower green fees but still plenty of fun. Pasatiempo - if you can do 36 holes there, if tee times work, i would highly recommend it. It's a private club that allows outside play starting at 9:30. I send a lot of groups there and work closely with them Bayonet is a good option, but I'd consider Half Moon Bay as well. 36-holes on property or TPC Harding Park Another itinerary to consider would be: Spyglass - play here one round instead of Spanish and Del Monte - essentially the same green fee that you would pay for 2 and would likely enjoy it more, perhaps crossing a course off of your bucket list by playing Spyglass Pacific Pasatiempo - 36 holes if possible Bayonet or Half Moon Bay or TPC Harding Park If it was me and my trip I would do this second itinerary. As for Cypress . . . I've had a few groups ask if we can get them on Cypress but it is next to impossible. I have a contact that may be able to but he advised me to save it for myself. Selfishly, I may have to take that advice. We have had success at the Olympic Club through a contact but that's hit and miss. One last golf course to consider would be CordeValle where they played the 2016 Women's U.S. Open. I have another golf course on the tip of my brain but can't quite remember it. Too early. If you'd like a hand with it or run things by me, feel free to reach out to via our website. I'd be more than happy to help out!
  6. Thanks! Not sure yet. I've got a big corporate group I work with every year that is heading to Wild Dunes Resort in Charleston, SC. So myself and a buddy make a 9 or 10 days trip. Last year it was a few nights at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, VA, a night in Pinehurst, NC, a couple of nights at Wild Dunes Resort, then back to Pinehurst Resort for a few nights. A pretty fun trip. Played: Kingsmill Resort River Course Royal New Kent Brickshire Stonehouse Dormie Club Wild Dunes Harbor Course Wild Dunes Links Course Pinehurst No. 2 Pinehurst No. 7 I think I may be missing a course - brain's not working quite yet this morning. Hoping to get to Sea Island, play True Blue in Myrtle, Dormie, and Tobacco Road. Also have a corporate group going to Reunion Resort in Orlando at the beginning of April so may make my way there for a few nights. How about you? Being from the Pacific Northwest, what are your thoughts on Chambers Bay? It got itself quite the crap kicking during the U.S. Open, but it actually looks like it would be a fun course to play under non-USGA-butchering conditions.
  7. Hello Everyone - First day on the forum. A big golf enthusiast, even though I managed to stink it up for the most part this golf season. Hoping to get away to some warm weather though to redeem myself and salvage the year!
