I think we should have the theme to the Love Boat blaring as @Golfspy_CG2 is walking to the 1st tee at the next outing!  

As long as you have a picture of Laren Tewes there as well.   Wonder what she looks like these days?

First off I did schedule and announce in here multiple times an outing for August 3rd.   Only ended up being 3 of us but the notice and invite were there!

Secondly, I don't think I'm the only one with internet and a cell phone, capable of calling a course setting up a group and then posting it here 🙂 

signed Grand Poobah!

So I managed to swing by the new Top Golf at National Harbor and I must say, this place is fantastic. They've massively upgraded the creature comforts and I had an all around enjoyable experience. 10/10 would go back. 

The back net is only 200 yards out but the rest of setup is great. New games, new balls that dispense in the station (instead of at the front), 3 levels, launch monitor lite (ball speed, launch angle, and visual), better bag drop, and more spacious stations. Of course, heated and cooled bays for all season play.

Since we seem to be struggling for an outing at a course, how would you guys feel about trying to do something here instead? It's central to most people in the DMV and right off the highway for those with a bit of a drive. I think it would also be great atmosphere for those that haven't met before so we can all hang out instead of being separated in foursomes. 

 

 

I just love that new facility smell. 😁

Sounds fun. I had mentioned to CG2 about 2 months ago we should look at doing something there after I passed that area heading into VA one day.

I’d try.

But I am afraid I am out for any meet ups this year. Just too much going on.

Have to do 40 hours of work at the kids school, I’m on call 24/7 for work, college...

Golf will be taking a backseat for a little while... 🥺

Still going to play every few weeks like I said, but my time will be absorbed mostly by other things.

i understand, beginning tomorrow most of my Saturday's will be working for the next two months for peak outing season.  Then surgery in November, which will sideline me through the end of the year.

Hello fellow DMVers!

Just wanted to introduce myself since I just moved to the area (near Ft Meade). I moved from California this summer and have defintely been enjoying the different courses since. I've been playing a lot of the MCG courses, but have also been out to a few other non-MCG courses.

I would definitely be interested in rounds with fellow members. I've been lurking here for a bit, but I think this is my first post. 

I also have a question for you guys. I'm looking to get fit into some new irons (and possibly driver) this winter. I've heard good things about Brandon Johnson at Nighthawk (and its 15 min from where I live). I've been to the second swing a few times, and their Tour Van fitting area seems pretty legit. The Top 100 list also recommends Golf Care Center and Golf Doctor in DC. I would be willing to drive a bit to find the right person. I know most of these places are indoor and off mats. I really like the idea of seeing the ball flight and testing irons off grass. Does Nighthawk let you do this? Anyway, what I'm really after is to hear some of your experiences and recommendations.

Thanks!

Brandon is a good guy to get fit with. Nighthawk has an outdoor range and trackman for when the weather is good. They have an indoor bay for bad weather.

+1 the fitting experience at Nighthawk is top notch.  

@Jak77To your question about hitting off grass, I don't believe that's an option but it didn't seem to affect my fitting much.  The results I saw during the fitting are the same I've experience on-course.  Welcome to (posting on) the forum!

Awesome guys. Thanks for validating what I was already told. I take lessons from Mark there and he suggested Brandon. Wanted to see what you guys thought since for whatever reason they’ve fallen off GD’s list even though they were on it a few years ago. I don’t know how much stock I put in that list anyway, every golf galaxy and golftec is on there.

Mark is a good guy too. I’ve used him for instruction over the years. The fitting lists are crazy and usually based around sales numbers.

Yeah that’s what I’ve figured about the list. Concur about Mark. He’s definitely one of the better guys I’ve gotten instruction from.
