Today at CIC?

Hmm did our course superintendent find out that MGS was going to be here on Sunday so they're tuning up the greens?

Hope that's not aerating, but I know it's the season in Northern Ohio - our league outing was on punched greens yesterday.

It's a long trip from Painesville - but we do have one slot open if you're interested.

Let me check. I don't really mind driving, but its a longshot, as my regular group made our yearly trip to Sawmill Creek last Sunday, and that occupied pretty much the whole day, it was 1.5 hours.  This would be 2 for me one way.  Let me gauge the bosses, reaction, and non verbal cues.  I'm sure the words will be go ahead and go, but I've been married long enough to know that the actual words being spoken are usually the last thing you want to pay attention to.  I'll get back to you.

Yellow Ball to Green ball come in....... I repeat, Yellow Ball to Green ball come in. Grow a pair! The men are calling. Or are you afraid of what I may report back after the trip?

Yeah sawmill is about 35 min away from us - but well worth the extra drive. How was sawmill? We had a group there late spring and their comments were not favorable - especially the comments on the wet bunkers.

Yellow Ball we have you with the 3some at 10:40. I assume you don't want to go to the driving range and mix it up with the Pinnacles. 😜

Madison and Hemlock are 2 of my 3 go-to's!  Little Mountain I like, Chardon Lakes we play 1 or 2 times with tee time golf pass book.

I will be able to come!  I did not see anything on cost?, and yes I see  ranges so infrequently, I may have a panic attack if I get to close to one😁.  WAIT!!! You all are telling me there is no rule that says you MUST get to the course less than 5 minutes before tee time, and YOU ARE allowed to take more than one half hearted practice swing on the first tee!  WHAT THE S***!!  Can't wait to see everyone!!

It was nice.  All the bunkers I saw(up close) and there were a few,  were in great shape.  Par 5 12/13 ? out along the marsh, the fairway was a little rough, I'm guessing from high water or rain, and it only being a foot or so above the marsh.  I just like it.  Greens had just been aeriated so that took a little away but I liked it.  Cedar Point bought it so hopefully they will put some money into the course, like they are the resort!

I played Punderson & Chardon Lakes all the time growing up, I miss them 😞. Never played the others, but I've heard they're all really good. I've played Painesville CC & Powderhorn, also what about Geneva-on-the-Lake, is that worth the drive? Do you miss Thunder Hill lmao (no one misses Thunder)

Chardon Lakes I can take or leave.  Always in great shape no doubt.  But it starts kicking you with narrowness early on, throws in very undulating greens, and then throws in green speeds most of the time that are off the charts.  I have not played Geneva on the Lake.  Madison is nice, it was private up until about 10 years ago, its older, pretty narrow, with some small greens on shorter holes, and larger on longer.  Hemlock  is one of my favorites.  Its forgiving, greens are good, and I like it because it is in the woods, and you see no houses, or any sign of civilization other than on 1,9, 10, and 18. Powderhorn is less than 5 minutes from me.  Upkeep not quite as good as others listed but has a few drivable par 4's, and makes you think a little bit.

And played Punderson for first time this year.  Really liked it.

OH, and I would rather have a tooth extracted with no Novocain, than subject myself to the TORTURE that was Thunderhill!

Ok got you in - check the message I sent you with the details. Since it'll be in the morning we'll be playing a breakfast ball😎. For those hardy enough;  you can try for the green on #1 - many have tried few have succeeded. Just don't hook it into our condo windows  😜

Quite the opposite. I'm always up for a good family reunion. Don't you worry I'll find my way back.
