    Decent rates. How's the course?

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    I'll play if you know in advance that I'm pretty bad at golf and won't be practicing between now and then.

    It's actually three 18 hole courses at one location. Each year we are randomly put on a course. Everyone I have ever asked has said the courses are nice for the price.

    Totally acceptable

    75% of the past participants didn't know jack shit about golfing, and they had a blast

  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian

  • shwaipshwaip bluffin' with my muffin Icrontian
    Not 100% sure, depends on dollas, school schedule, and paper deadlines.

    I *should* still have a spare set at ICHQ - First come first served

    I believe Ryder has a spare set also.

    They do have rent-able clubs at the course. (which if I remember had been updated from the previous 1915 style clubs)

    SO IN!!
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    BobbyDigi and I are both in. We will both need clubs. Last year I rented, and I am fine doing it again this year. It wasn't that expensive if I recall. Ryder showed us a good time :D

    Can't wait! Put us on the list please.

    done.

    I'm gonna try to pair up teams this year with people who haven't played together yet. See how that turns out

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA Icrontian
    Will need to borrow/rent clubs, btw.
  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian
    Ryder may not have a spare set this year, will not know until closer to event. Will do my best :)

    If I'm going to Expo then I will for sure join in. I'll update here if so.
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    anyone remember how much it was to rent clubs? I want to say $15
  • NiGHTSNiGHTS San Diego Icrontian
    Somewhere around there - they were nice clubs too. Nike Ignite and Slingshot irons.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Icrontian
    In. Event is on the official Expo calendar.
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja I don't know how to not Icrontian
    Ya there was a security deposit on the clubs that was a bit pricey if I recall, but the actual rental fee was cheap.

    For teams, let's make sure we consider skill level. This will be the second time I've ever golfed .. the first time was last year. I'm pretty bad. I only had a couple good strokes, the rest were awkward and poorly placed. Kind of reminds me of my younger years.

    Skill level and then mixing up players... I agree. No matter what, I always have fun!
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    raise your hand if you are a skilled golfer?

    lol

    *half-raised* I'm no pro, but I'm no novice either.
  • LazarusXeroLazarusXero Illinois Icrontian
    I'm in again... last year was a riot... I'll be renting clubs this year and as for skill, I have none...
  • ZanthianZanthian Mitey Worrier Milford, OH Icrontian
    Count me in too. The last time i played was two years ago at EPIC.
