Ha. That might do for a DMV outing. But not for a big MGS shindig 😁

Lebanon, KS is the geographic center of the USA... just saying 😆.

No worries mate. I'll call the course and change it to 2 4somes.

Yes. It's $60 to ride and $48 to walk. However, I'm a walker and will be riding this one because I looked at the photo gallery. Looks like some hilly holes and a bit of distance between some of the tees and greens.

I will be walking. Looking forward to meeting everyone and playing this course for the first time, but I'm not comfortable sharing a cart.

@MattF - Mike may be out too, but it will be closer to a game time decision. He really wants to play but was rear-ended by a City of Cuyahoga Falls garbage truck on Monday and is stiff and sore.

Ironically, he had just bought a brand new Accord less than a month ago.

This course is a BEAR to walk. Lots of distance between holes and elevation that isn't really noticed on shots, because of carries, but is noticed when walking.  I'm going to ride, personally, even though I do prefer to walk normally.  This is one of the few courses I play regularly that I ride.

Thanks for the info. I’ll be walking most likely unless I have a last second change of mind. See everyone at the course!

Good to know. I walk Cossett Creek all the time and they've got plenty of hills too. The back 9 runs thru a valley and can wear you out.

That's a bugger, but we'll be fine. I cut the 11.36 tee time about an hour ago with the course.

Mike is in. He's feeling better, but will just make sure to swing easy.

I'm going to ride (I've played here before) but prefer not to share. My DIL is pregnant and I'm just not taking any chances, so no offence guys.

Great time today! My foursome was me, my friend Mike (only played 9), @[email protected], and @Lakeeriegolfer. The other foursome was @MattF, @Mr_Theoo, @Tsmithjr9, and @RollingGreens. The course was really nice, and challenging. I wasn't playing great, not too far worse than normal, just struggled off the tee more than I'd like and didn't hit irons all that well. Here are some pics....

Say hi, Alex

20200628_123827.jpg.cb878d21c06a9db700fd40423b3a3047.jpg

Tony, my friend Mike, and Alex on the tee (L-R)

20200628_125134.jpg.e1f8bc1a8a244bdbb4be2a77d77b7d4a.jpg

This par 3 has a good story. Alex hit his ball a little fat and was down in the valley just past the pond. I pulled my tee shot a bit and was near where the dude in the orange shirt is. Tony striped a wood (3, 5?) right at the hole, ended up a few feet short. I made what Arccos says was a 28 foot putt. Alex played a great chip leaving ~8 feet up the hill, which he made. All the pressure was on Tony since he had the best shot. No big deal, he drained it. We walked away with 2 birdies and a par.

20200628_143517.jpg.4065fce4550a0fef987befda53112c5e.jpg

A couple other pics:

It was a great day and fun to meet more spies.

I'll let Alex describe his near hole-in-one on a par 4.

What a great time today at Pine Hills! A big thanks to [mention=12972]mattf[/mention] for setting this up and a shoutout to MGS for supplying us with 'goodies'!

 

Blake has some great photos. But a few others you might like. The first is the finishing hole (the green in the foreground is the practice green), the 18th green is behind it and to the left. A tough hole for me - I won't say anymore

IMG_5553.thumb.JPG.85f06c29b3e2563601db4115a7ea81de.JPG

 

There's the par 3 that Blake mentioned. One of the only few good holes for me. My 5 wood onto the green just a few feet away from the pin. Our 3 some walked off with 2 birds and a par - nice! The pic is from the back side of the green.

 

IMG_5560.thumb.JPG.8525f209c97569e95d05fa3f8069e2d8.JPG

 

The last pic here is typical of this scenic course. Definitely one I wouldn't recommend walking especially in the middle of a summer's afternoon !

Thank you all for coming out! It was a great day and an absolute pleasure to meet you all and catch up with those of you I call my friends. We will definitely have to do this again and I think at least some of us will take @[email protected] on his offer to host us for a game at his club.

The course was in great condition and the greens were surprisingly slower than I thought they'd be but did start to get a bit quicker on the back 9 with some breaks that none of use could read.

Here's a few pics, with 2 action shots off the tee, one of @Mr_Theoo's 3 wood head, which managed to go further than his ball and the last is a group shot before we took off for all points of the compass.
