Man, wish I knew I could lock in a yes, this kind of thing sounds awesome! I'm a long stretch maybe with the travel, cost and some personal/family commitments, but this is the sort of thing I'd absolutely love to be a part of at some point, even if it is a few years in the future!

This is me as well, particularly at this time.

Early August is when my first child is due so definitely is a no go for me. The September date is middle of fall season so it'll depend whether games are home or away that weekend and will dictate my availability Saturday but I would certainly drive down for Sunday. Only an hour and a half drive for me.

Low budget is still the watchword for my golf so it would be a one day out and back from WNY at 8 hours each way, but doable.  Golf only (unfortunately and hoping for more than that going forward) and Saturday is better to travel each side of golf with rest.  Lower cost for playing (Lakes versus River) would be preferable but as an event is not a deal breaker.  Either weekend in August or September is currently on the table.

Yeah.  Fall football schedules is definitely a factor for a lot of people, which could swing it to the August date if it’s a close result.  
 

Also just a heads to everyone  based on the low number of definite interest at this point   I’ll likely also make this a Local Team Titleist event and put it out to the Team Titleist community as well. 
 

I already have an email in to Titleist on the possibility of their support in any way..from Swag to demo to Titleist Personnel attending? 
 

Would also be a good way to introduce some of those members to the Forum if they aren’t aware of it and vice/versa

If @Thin2windrives, so @Kenny Band I can relax, watch scenery, and snooze, the September dates might work 🙂.  This would end up part of a golf trip with another stop or two and course or two added to amortize the cross-country trip.

They do have this new invention, it's called an aeroplane 

Now that you mention it, I am vaguely familiar with those contraptions.  Ah, but you are missing the nostalgia of cross-country road trips and the chance to play those courses you'd only view from above 🙂.  I've been thinking about a golf centric road trip that would include the RTJ courses.

Hi Everyone..there has been ongoing talk for years about a National MGS Outing.   While that is still something that is on Adam's radar and mine, I thought I'd try and start with a Regional Outing of sorts, to at least get the ball rolling then maybe it can morph into a larger one.

I've done a lot of research over the past couple months and have a place targeted and have availaiblity and pricng from them.   What I would like to hear from everyone is while not a 100% commitment at this point, but a true definite likely hood that you would make it.   Right now we only hae two dates as options for a variety of reasons.   So it would definitely be one of these two dates.   I'm including a poll for you to vote for the date that is most likely fo ryou, if you would be willing to come for either date, you can vote for both. 

Bassic details, more info will come if I decide the interest is enough and genuine.

Location Queenstown Harbor Golf Course-20 minutes East of Annapolis MD on the Eastern Shore of MD.   About 45 minutes to 1 Hour drive from BWI airport. 

Queenstown Harbor Golf Course

Dates:   Aug 5-7 

              Sept 16-18

There will be two days of golf Saturday and Sunday.   You can choose to play both days or either day.  Two different courses, River and Lakes.  The River Course is annually rated as one of the top 5 or 10 public courses in the state of Maryland. 

Accoodations aviable to the first 20 players will be large house on the property adjancent to the 2nd tee and a waterview. Perfect spot for the group to hang out each day and hve fun. 

Wye cottage has 8 beds and 3 full baths (see  This Link for detail) 

Cheser Cottage has 12 beds and 5 baths (see This Link for details )

Arrive sometime Friday-time on your own to relax or play a practice round if you'd like.   We could possibly arrange a group dinner Friday night 

Saturday-18 holes on River Course tee time starts around 9:00 to 10:00  (possible OEM demo available afterward)  Saturday night hang out

Sunday-18 holes on Lakes Course tee time starts around 9:00-considering some may have afternoon flights or long drives home.

The cost isn't 100% now, it will ultiately depend on how many stay overnight.   We would need a minium of 8 to 10 guys to commit to a Friday/Saturday night stay.  Those that don't stay overnight and only want to play one day can be accomodated as well, assuming we don't sell out the 24 spots two day overnighters.  If that does happen early enough, I can always try to add more tee times on each day.

So costs would be approxiametly 

2 nights lodging  between $460 to $600 for both nights. 

Golf would be $120 for the River Course and $80 for the Lakes Course

So just to put it togetgher if you are staying in the cottage for 2 nights and playing golf both days-Your package price would be between $660 and $800 all in, with 50% deposit due once the event is final in the next 14 days or so.   

I also hope to be able to provide some swag, and would love to get someone from HQ  Adam or Harry to join in.  

So for now please select an option above, again if you really think you can make it.  It's important fo rme to give them a firm count and a deposit willl be due. 

I do welcome any thoughts and comments inthe thread here---except for suggesions on alternate dates or location 🙂

When I was one of two site modirtors for www.GolfGearReview.com about 17 years ago. I set up an invite only golf event here in the Denve area where I live. I made arrangements to play golf every day for a week at different local golf courses and left it up to those that came in from out of town to find a place to stay. I provided a short list of hotels in the area for them to pick from, but other than that they were on their own for housing. We had 5 members of the site show up and play for the week. NOT all came for the full week but a few did. We started off playing an easy wide open course and finished up on Saturday at pretty demanind course up in the foothills to conclude the week. Since I set up the course times and had room for one guest, I put up one member at my home for the week. Everything worked out pretty well and everyone had a good time playing golf and meeting new friends for the week. We did it again the next year again in the Denver area. Green fees ranged from $20 to $$35 per round and hotels were less than $100 a nite, sot the total cost for the week was not that high.  Adding in air fair from DIA both ways and cost of shipping a bag of clubs back and forth, I think I skip it this year. NOT in my budget this year for sure.

Yep, I have planeed group outings for more years than I can remember.   Matter of fact the first piece of advice I ever got from a friend who had been doing it for a while was funny,but turned out spot on.  He said, "If you ever find yourself having more freinds than you need.  Plan a golf trip for 24 guys, you'll find yourself with about 12 to 16 fewer freinds by the time the whole thing is done 🙂    Pretty spot on. 

For this one, I am doing everything possible in negotiating the rate to try and get it feesable for as many to stay on site in the cottages as possible.  For a gorup like this who have known each other for probably more than 5 to 10 years in most cases, but for the most part has never met in person or palyed together, it makes for a great atmopshere and good time to hang out, vesus everyone heading off to a different hotel afterward.

@Golfspy_CG2 if the on site accommodation fills up so you have any recommendations for off site hotels close by? I see a few in the area but always defer to local authorities!
