"That is cool you are playing with Rinker. He seems to be getting really good ever since I left Iowa City. Yeah you should talk him into playing the Montana states.. with a 27 hole bohart course. it will be a B tier. This tourney could put us in good…"
good luck up at troy!!! tear the beast a new one...
Im playin dglo this wknd- an Atier at hudson mills pay-to-play metropark (about as opposite as possible from the troy experience sounds like)
but hey its all golf so go low bro!
yeah a course is really only the first step...
is the hollow set-up yet- or do they take the tones away after each round?
played there summer 06(?) when the parking was getting out of hand with casual players, er...future club-members, heh...
access to the hollow thread on hwdgc says mod-only so I can't see it...
hope rose gets goin soon but I do rack my brain thinkin of potential private courses and benevolent land-owners (still rackin...)
guess Ill have to relearn how to putt at pieces of poop-pipe;)
just lookin forward to livin there while spreading the love for DG and feeding my own jones- youknowthedeal
gonna be around early june for some rounds maybe...?
(thats the spiritwood wknd)
Ive got a wedding on the 7th but would love to bust my cherry on the X on the 8th or 9th...
I responded to your post on hwdgc site too- I was hoping the DG scene would be boomin by the time I move back there in fall of 09 but looks like there may still be some work to do developing a local culture, which of course Ill be happy to help with somehow
In 1983 Turkey Creek was the only IC course and only nine holes, Although we made up our own course at City park which we played heaps. My first ace was in '82 or '83 on hole one at Turkey Creek early March my very first throw of the season. The next ace took many years.....
I'm an old IowaCity transplant to Wisconsin. I'm trying to get a hold of Bryan Van Horne, moved to MT from WI. I think he might be in Missoula?. Anyway if you happen to know him, tell him he should come back for Standing Rocks Open, it's year ten and we're having lots of micro brew. he won advanced one year with 75 players in the field.
Liked your idea of generating some poll questions about league play this year. Although I'm partial to the way we have been working it, I'm going to think about your (and any other's) options.. more later.
