My app has my avg score at 85 but that’s generous imo from a good amount of rounds at an easy course. I’m a bogey golfer by avg score (removing the easy course scores) but a scratch golfer in my mind and at the range. 

I was down to a 13 handicap at one point but it was built on a lot of 9 hole rounds of 40-42 at my home course. Those combine for low 80’s and look better than they are. Even though my course has a decent slope & rating, my handicap doesn’t travel that well. There are real benefits to know where you can miss and how the greens roll.

OK so let’s find a saturday later this month to do this gtg. I think The Ranch is the best spot but a course in NECT may get our SEMA peeps involved so I’m open to whatever. Getting two foursomes would be decent. 
 

Suggestions?

I'll go to the Ranch but if you want a suggestion for NE guys, Thompson Raceway, I think someone already mentioned the course earlier, nice 18 hole course with good burgers. I'm in anyplace you guys decide.

If something could be pulled together, I would definitely entertain bringing my weak ass game down for a round.

It’s more about us getting together, the hacks are a given. I’m know to string together 3-4 holes of great ball striking, my playing partners hyping me up for a sub 80 round.. only for me to melt on consecutive holes where I duck a few tee shots. Whatever, it’s all in good fun.

That’s right. I’m down. 
 

I’ll come up with a few dates and give it a few weeks for everyone to decide.

Connecticut national. Played it last Sunday 89 dollars with a cart. It was in spectacular shape. Food and beer is very reasonable.

A little more expensive but it's a great course, the new owner really did a great job with the course. We've had a couple of our year end tournaments there and it's a great course.  I'm down for either.

Oh I didn't know it changed ownership? People are great there.

Whatever is best for the crew. My July weekends are packed though but I could probably swing a day. votes on:

Sun 7/17

Sat 8/6

Sun 8/7

Sat 8/13

Weather permitting obviously. 

You want to shoot for the 17th and see what we get for response?

Sure. Let’s shoot for it and if we get enough two foursomes or even two theeesomes, we’ll plan an appropriate tee time afterwards.

I can probably find some fill ins if need be. I'm not dead set on Connecticut national either whatever works for people as long as it's not a real hike.

Wachusett was gorgeous. Greens were immaculate. Only downside was slow play. Not sure if it was just the holiday or if it's usually like that.

Unfortunately not. Have a commitment in morning till around noon so couldn’t tee off until like 2p.

If we pick the 17th, tee time is still tbd. 
 

also, we if we get into a rhythm with these it won’t be the last golf gtg.

So we have 3 definites and 3 maybe’s so far for the 17th at a course tbd in NECT. Likely CT National or Thompson Raceway.
 

Yes: me, Ken, davisstraight

Maybe, modfan, mrreaves, Chris (late tee of only)

We’ll let this marinate into the weekend so more folks can chime in.

We might be better teeing off at 2pm, it's usually thinned out by then unless there's a big league that night at the Raceway, I can call and ask and report back.
