    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
    thanks shwaip!

    you going to make it this yea?
  • 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)
  • QCHQCH Ancient Guru Chicago Area - USA Icrontian
    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 :)
  • RahnalH102RahnalH102 the Green Devout, Veteran Monster Hunter, Creature Enthusiast New Mexico Icrontian
    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
  • RahnalH102RahnalH102 the Green Devout, Veteran Monster Hunter, Creature Enthusiast New Mexico Icrontian
    *half-raised* I'm no pro, but I'm no novice either.
  • LazarusXeroLazarusXero Illinois Member
    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.
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    I live on a golf course, but have yet to play but want to try it so I'll be in for this year. Epic 2012, breaking my golf cherry. LOL
  • sharkydartsharkydart KY Icrontian
    I want to play!
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    eleven players already, awesome!
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    So since I live on a golf course, should I go and practice, or would it be even more lulz if it were to be my first time ever hitting a golf ball? I'll need some clubs btw. Now I just have to go shopping for some fantastic golf attire.
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    I would at least go to the driving range before so as not to injure self at event....

    Words of wisdom. You'd be surprised (or probably not) by the amount of people I know that have injured themselves in some manner while "golfing".
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    I usually injure myself by hitting a tree and having my golf ball return to me post haste.

    Also, by being flung from the cart by @QCH
  • QCHQCH Ancient Guru Chicago Area - USA Icrontian
    Did I do that? I do not recall said event... :D

    Man, I wish this was on Friday I would so totally have been in! Have fun guys :D
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    One of the PE coaches at my school gave me a set of his old clubs and I have been going to the driving range to practice a few times a week. I can almost always hit the ball now, so that's good. Hope you guys don't mind the fact that I suck something awful!!

    Oh yeah i should probably hit the range.
  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    In. Even though I haven't even moved my clubs in 2 years. That's what beer carts are for, right?
  • fatcatfatcat Mizzou Icrontian
    @RahnalH102 were you going to play?
  • RahnalH102RahnalH102 the Green Devout, Veteran Monster Hunter, Creature Enthusiast New Mexico Icrontian
    I was. Even bought my ticket to EpIC. But I've had to cancel. :(
