Forum Outing 2013 – Day #3: Pearl West

Cold.  Did I say it was cold?  People were bundled up like it was the next Ice Age.  And it was early.  I think a few hardy individuals came straight from the bar.  Whatever it was, the cold or last night's libations, Pearl West took a bite out of almost everybody. Paul, Nick and BKMgr braved the cold and wore shorts.  It was so cold even I wore long pants, although by the  early holes [...]

Forum Outing 2013 – Day 2: River’s Edge

River's Edge.  This will be my third or fourth round at this course.  And I have a love/Hate relationship with it.  I know exactly what holes I do not score well on.  I know what holes I do score well on (and they are very few and far between...).  That being said, the course has some of the best march views in the area.  And when the sun is setting (as it will just after we [...]

Forum Outing 2013 – Day 1: Barefoot Norman

Jeff and I rolled into the parking lot at Barefoot not sure what to expect.  Neither of us had played the Norman Course, and there are always mixed reviews of it.  I had heard that the holes along the Intercoastal were quite good, and I have to admit that they were.  The rest of the holes were pretty good, but certainly below the other Barefoot courses in my estimation.  When we got to the bag [...]

Forum Outing 2013 – Warm-up Day #4: Wachesaw Plantation Club

Our final Forum warm-up day and another new course on this trip.  There's been a recent thread on Wachesaw Plantation Club, and it has been talked up pretty big.  Both Jeff and I were looking forward to a more traditional layout given the 'fun' we had on Dye yesterday, and we were impressed as we drove in. The staff at the course was great and soon we were checked in, loaded up and headed to the [...]

Forum Outing 2013 – Warm-up Day #3: The Dye Club

After the typical good breakfast at the Caravelle, Jeff and I headed out to the Barefoot Resort to play a familiar friend, the Dye Club.  We got there in good time, hit some balls and headed out to the first tee.  Opening shots were nice and straight, straight into the bunker on the left.  This was to be a theme for me today, it was like "Welcome to the Beach"!  I was in a bunker [...]

Forum Outing 2013 – Warm-up Day #2: The Tale of Two Courses

An early day.  Did I say that?  Did the alarm really go off at 4:50?  We have how far to drive?  On the road from Chesapeake at 5:30 am, it's pitch black as we make our way down towards Kitty Hawk and the Outer Banks. The first stop is the Currituck Club in Corolla, make a left at Kitty Hawk and head north.  The Currituck Club is a Rees Jones design that winds it's way [...]

Forum Outing 2013 – Warm-up Round #1: Piedmont Golf Club

And so it begins, the Forum Outing 2013 (at least for Jeff and I).  We actually left last night after work, stopping around 2am in Gettysburg, PA around 2am.  With about 6 hours sleep and a Sausage and Egg McMuffin in our bellies, we got back on the road and headed to Haymarket, VA and the Piedmont Golf Club for our 11:30 tee time.  Highway 15 down to Haymarket was really busy with a bike [...]

Hark, the 2013 Forum Outing Approaches

I can't believe that it's been almost 6 months since my last Blog posting.  It' been a crazy six months however, so here's a quick catch-up before I get to the good stuff! This was the summer I turned 50.  Not sure if my body was complaining about things, however I have never had so many aches and pains.  I've been suffering all summer with a left hip flexor issue that seems to have finally [...]

First Round of the Year

A joke has been making the rounds here, and it seems really accurate for the state our spring has been in.  Here it is:  It's harsh!  I went for a run yesterday and I almost put my toque on.  I suffered through hail, sleet, rain and gusting, cold winds.  it has to stop soon!  We got an email from my club, the opening has been delayed until May 2nd.  I have some passes for the [...]

Severe Withdrawal

Here it is the end of March 2013, and not a hope of playing golf without a 3+ hour drive each way.  This will be the first year in 10 that I have not played a round in my area in March.  Last year was fantastic, we were playing in mid-March as temperatures were in the high 20’s (that would be high 70’s for those south of Canada).  Today we are looking at a high [...]
