After some discussion in a couple different threads there appears to be a simmering interest in having a MGS Golf Outing somewhere this spring.  So taking what little has been discussed already and putting it in one place for  a proposed outing this Spring.

 

Where: World Woods Golf Course, Brooksvillle Florida (about 45 minutes north of Tampa Intl Airport)    http://www.worldwoods.com/

 

 

When: Late March to Late  April   (March 31/April 2 or April 7/9 or April 21/23

 

Who: Any Interested MGS'er and Guests

 

 

So we know we have a least a couple long time MGS'ers in the area in Rev and Foz, and a couple new ones I believe as well.  The courses are ranked in the Top 100 you can play on many golf lists.  

 

Tampa is about as easy and affordable of airport as you can find to fly into.   

 

I've done a bit of searching on the course and the associated villas and the rates on golf go down significantly after April 1 and I'm thinking flights do as well.   I know Rev has mentioned the 2nd week or so of April would leave him out, so that might make the Weekend of April 7/8.  That is The Masters weekend, for better or worst, just so everyone knows.   The following weekend is Easter weekend, so that is definitely a no go.     The third weekend mentioned would be the latest I could go, as it starts to get into our busy outing season after that. 

 

I'm going to see if I can attach a poll to the thread, and feel free to vote and make any general comments or suggestions in the thread.  After we get some responses, we'll start seeing if it's realistically doable and narrow things down.

I guess it is easy to figure my vote Rob, 1st votes are not anonymous lol.  The 2nd week is most desirable to me but I could probably manage any of the 3.  I hope this comes to fruition.

Rob I'm voting for the 4/7 - 4/9 weekend.   This is a great idea to have members of this fine community come together and enjoy an awesome golf venue & make lifetime friends or enemies  ;)  lol...   jk on the enemies stuff.  I've been to several of these type wing dings and have never met a person I didn't have a good time with.  Good on you for taking charge and getting this up and going.

Thanks OG, As I have time in the coming days, I'll gather some actual pricing info.  There is pricing on the World Woods site, but it's a bit complicated to figure out golf and villa pricing together.

 

But it looks like they can send a quote based on number of rounds of golf and nights and the size of Villa, hopefully i'll get to fire that off to them today.

I didn't list that one, but this was just a beginning point, if you could play that weekend and it works for others, it's not off the table.   Just trying to guage the genuine interest at this point then see about locking down a date.   Is it a family trip, or would you be free join any golf planned?

Yeah, as I stated in the original post, my schedule is yet to be determined as well, but hopefully it works out.  

 

FWIW, I checked flights into TPA from BWI for the  April 7 to 9 weekend, only $155 with a monday am flight that gets me to  work by 9:00 AM    Not too bad at all.

 

I'll keep an eye out on any MN doing's, sounds like that would be fun.

Can't skip out on school for golf, so count me out for that one. If you guy want we can try and do something down here in Naples. It would be free not including tip and travel expenses, but it would be an exclusive course where we would have pretty much the whole place to ourselves. I'm sure we will talk about it more as the summer gets closer

April 9 is my birthday and April 22 is my wedding anniversary.   The wife likes me to be home on those occasions.   Plus I don't want to miss my presents from her, in a manner of speaking. 

You are wise!

It's our annual family trip. If nothing happens that weekend I'm pretty sure Foz, Rev and Barbajo (if he's there) will probably play on the 25th.

Rob, I am down with any of those weekends.  It's a short drive for me.  Looking forward to teeing it up with you again.

Eric,..awesome to see you chime in.  it would be great to get together again for a fun round.   I'll keep this updated.

 

 

Note to all:

 

I did get some info back yesterday from Susan at the course.  The weekend of march 31 to April 2, they only have two villas left at $212 a night each (each sleeps 4)  which means a max of 8.  I'm sure that would be enough at least for a start.   Golf was $60 for the first round and $30 for a replay I believe.

 

it appears with the lowering of rates that week, it's a popular time.   I'll get some other quotes on that earlier weekend in March as well, just for comparison sake if nothing else.

I am a bit out there, but I say 36 at World Woods one day and 18 at Southern Hills Plantation the next  ;) .  Southern Hills (not to be confused with Southern Woods, which is a sister property to WW) is about 20 minutes south of there, a Pete Dye design, and maybe the best course in the Tampa Bay area.

I would be interested in an outing to World Woods.  I have played both courses quiet a few times and it would be a great golf destination.  Two really good courses so you can play 36 without leaving the property.  There is a small snack bar in the club house to grab a sandwich between rounds. 

 

I don't know about the villas, when I've gone there our group stayed at the HI Express which is about 20 minutes down the expressway.  WW is about a mile or so from the end of the Sunshine Expressway.  

 

There is not much near the course, it is a good ways out in the country, I've wondered where the villas are located.  I will be down there in January and maybe learn more then.  

 

Pine Barrens is one of my favorite courses anywhere.  It is a driver friendly, where the emphasis is on approach shots.  Lots of variety in holes, lots of sand but NO bunkers, all sand plays as a waste area, even greenside.  Rakes are on the cart.  Greens can give you fits if you get above the hole.  Fun course.  

 

Rolling Oaks is a more traditional course, less sand and there are bunkers.  It is a really good course as well. 

 

Go on the website and register, you will get emails each month with specials.  Just print the emails and take them with you to the course.  I don't think I've been there when there wasn't some kind of email deal.  Sometimes it's one course or the other and sometimes it depends on day of the week.
