Remember this uphill Par 3? It's about 160 from the whites and you don't want to go long and end up in the rough behind the green. A chip from that rough will guarantee that the ball rolls down all the way into the collection area. Note: the picture doesn't do the slope on this green justice.

Is that #9? My recollection is it plays longer than it is.

Depending on pin position - about 5 yds longer if you believe my PP rangefinder

Should we open up a contest to all forum members to see how many balls go swimming August 15th on this straightforward Par 3? 😜 Hmm let's see between the 12 of us maybe............... Note: they do sell golf balls at the Proshop. 

For those that haven't played it - it's a straightforward 160 from the tips, 135 from the whites onto a green no larger than my garage that slopes to the water on 2 out of 3 sides - the 3rd is a small greenside bunker. AND it's into prevailing westerly winds from Lake Erie!

Looks fun.

Lol, I went long. After my almost hole in one on the other par 3, this started the trend of being in the wrong spot on nearly every hole.

😎! I went short on #9  yesterday - a 25' putt earned me $20 for a natural birdie/net eagle. Don't ask about the rest of my game. 😡

Wish I could say the same. I've been spectacularly average of late, but at least it's not spectacularly bad!

That's great! I felt I was getting close too, then that tropical storm blew in and I don't feel like I've played golf since. I've chunked a ball around through wet, poor conditions, but not golf. And that includes the tournament round I played last weekend.

I’m usually good for reviving a few peoples game in the course. I like to think I bring out the best in everyone 😂

Don't worry about it - as soon as you think you have game it's gone. That's why golf is a four letter word. 😜

This sounds like it will be a great time.  I personally haven't played since the week after Memorial Day.  I have been resting and trying to rehab the torn muscle in my left fore arm.  Very slow going, as I still have pain rotating my arm at the elbow.  I'll be on the beach while you are playing soaking up sunshine.  Hope to be back in the fall.  We will see.

Have a BLAST!

I played some pretty good rounds with you last year. I think you're the only one who's seen me break 80, so they know I'm not fibbing 😆

@Michael Wolff

So I discovered today that Mike has actually signed up for MGS. If suggested he do it for a couple years, but it appears he finally took the plunge.

Guys, 

We're only a week and a half away. So please reconfirm. Also I am arranging for lunch - please send me your sandwich preference; turkey, ham or veggie. I need to get this back from you in the next couple of days.

As we get closer, I'll have more details. I believe this is the biggest or next to biggest outing for MGS Forum members. It will be fun! 

Also as I mentioned last year a good app to use at our Club is ezpinlocator. It's free - but not sure if it's available for Android. Looking at the sample green in the pic below (actual shot of #1 today)- the way to read it: The lower left number (in red) is the number of paces from the middle - in this case 5 paces short of the middle. The depth of the green - upper right is 30 paces. The 10,5L means 10 paces from the front and 5 paces from the left.
