Got any golf trips planned?

Usually meet up with a few members down in the Memphis area to play a few rounds. Been trying to get us together to play Mirimichi one day and Tunica the next. Always a scheduling issue with someone in the group.

Going to a country call "North Texas" in April, followed up by a trip home to Hawaii the next week.  July I will be in Virginia Beach/OBX, August = Myrtle Beach, November = Vegas.  Anyone down for round?

Dancing Rabbit is actually on a Indian Reservation and there are two large hotel/casino complexes. There is actually a cat walk between the two casinos. Pretty cool place!

Yes it is. It is on the Poarch Creek reservation. I go down there about once a year for meetings and get to play Dancing Rabbit. Really cool if you can stay in one of the villas on the course.

50th Birthday trip for my buddy out to Oregon - Bandon in May hopefully will be great. Either way finally lucky enough to put this together. Any advice appreciated

Headed to Myrtle Beach tomorrow to play 4 rounds. Should be a good time! 

 

My dad lives down there so it's nice to get away and see him and head to the course. I fly out tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

 

I also have a trip to OBX in May, we usually play once or twice while there. It's always a blast! I also have a trip in the works for August that may equal some golf. Not sure yet. The big one that's brewing is possibly a trip to Bandon next Spring/Summer to play. Nothing for sure yet, but I'm drooling over the thought!

Spent last week in Orlando with some buddies and played 5 really nice tracks - Waldorf, Celebration, Mission Inn Las Colinas, Mission Inn El Campeon, and Grand Cypress New Course.

 

I've played Waldorf several times.  Nice track but typical, over-priced resort course...nothing really special about it.

 

Celebration was a fun course to play.  Really good condition all around and definitely some challenging holes for a shorter course.

 

Mission Inn was amazing!!  Beautiful courses, exceptional conditions and some of the most challenging holes I've ever played in my life on both courses (particularly El Campeon).  I'd play those again in a heart beat.

 

Grand Cypress New was a blast.  Very old world, St Andrews feel, which obviously Jack Nicklaus was going for when he helped design it.  It was pretty authentic when we played there too because the wind was gusting around 20-25 mph.  It was deceiving because it's so open you think the course will be a cake walk.  The greens, however are very tough.  Hard to gauge the speed and there were some mysterious breaks that none of us saw in a lot of putts.  Plus, get on the wrong side of the green and you're in big trouble.  I actually posted my worst score of the weekend at the New Course, which was extremely frustrating.  That said, I'd absolutely play there again.

Looking forward to it. We've always played the pointe club and never Carolina club. Thoughts on the two?

Either or,  depends where you are staying really, if your up in Corolla/Duck makes more sense to play The Point and Kilmarlic (accross the street),  If you want to drive another 15 minutes North, Carolina club is a GEM.  My house is in Avon, way down there., so when I drive down from Virginia Beach in the morning, we play Carolina club then hit Weeping Radish Brewery for lunch before heading down to the island.  We should get our parties together one year, My house in Avon sleeps 8.  Have fun bro,,,,,

I got to spend a week in Palm Springs in January, but the rest of my year is kind of boring so far.  I'll be spending Eater weekend with my wife in Pinehurst.  We'll spend Thanksgiving week there too, at our condo at Talamore.  In between, in October, I'm hoping to be selected to play an east-west RyderCup style competition organized through another website in....you guessed it.....Pinehurst.  Its a tough life, but I'm going to try to cope with the boredom.

Thanks my friend! And yes, we definitely should. Would be a great time. We play the pointe, kilmarlick, currituck and played the nags Head golf Links last year. Great courses!
