« on: September 27, 2022, 12:48:44 AM »
Land in LA tomorrow for as long as ďitĒ takes. Please golf with me. Anywhere, anytime.


Last dude, Laz, that took me up on a similar plea got a hole in one during our round. Why not you?


Iíve packed slacks.

Now that's a very funny post, lol
Live Jupiter, Fl, was  4 handicap, played top 100 US, top 75 World. Great memories, no longer play, 4 back surgeries. I don't miss a lot of things about golf, life is simpler with out it. I miss my 60 degree wedge shots, don't miss nasty weather, icing, back spasms. Last course I played was Augusta

I'm playing Rustic as a single on Sunday but the rest of my tee time is sold out. Sorry John.  :)

Halloween is not out of the equation. The day after I play with you sounds about right.

I'll be in LA on Oct 10-12.


Happy to host you at Top Golf in El Segundo if you buy the chicken wings.


The holes there are oversized so an ace is definitely in the cards.

Iím only a nine minute Uber ride away. That would be hilarious. Earlier this month I played Glenview on my blue skies and great bounces tour through Chicago. Those who I asked spoke highly of you. Congrats.

If you don't get on a country club or two try Angeles National a Nicklaus course in a canyon in the Valley and the site of my sole hole-in-one. Very challenging and fun to play. 8)
I love golf, the fightin irish, and beautiful women depending on the season and availability.

Any luck, John? Rough time of year with lots of aeration taking place throughout SoCal right now. (At least among publics.)

Toss in a Soule Park round or three.
Nice town to boot.
$25 after 1:00
$34 before
That seems unbelievable to me and mostly open on the sheet.
aerification?

I hope Kav plays everywhere he wants in SoCal. There used to be way more access threads back in the day and some of the approaches were noteworthy. There is a story about a U.S. course rater who feigned a British accent in an effort to find his way onto one of the iconic courses thinking it would give him a leg up. :)

Could be aeration.  Make sure to play early at Soule or itís a long round.  Hoping someone gives Mr. Kavanaugh a chance to wear slacks rather than shorts while in town.

I'm in town for all of October at a minimum. With my phantom base being LAX Soule Park is a bit far but I misplaced my no. Set it up and I'll show. I'd love to find out if Westchester is the best Chester. I can ride my bike there.


Speaking of bikes. The bicycle scene along the beach has to be one of the finest in the world. If anyone wants to meet for a ride let me know. I haven't buddy upped on a bike in over 20 years.

Not sure what Hurricane Ian did to JK, but I like what I read. They say that mean pets get nice in their final years. Hope that JK has plenty of years left to be this nice and droll.
Maybe for 2022

It says Soule Park is 90-100min drive from Santa Monica. Is it worth the hike out there?

It takes a big set of balls in my mind to ask someone for access to their club. I'll have my pro call the clubs pro but that's as far as I would ever go.

When you bring something to the table you can ask anyone to pull up a chair.

My son and I still talk about the 36 holes we played with John a couple years ago -- I highly recommend it.

Barney,

I just fired up Google Maps...

Looks like its only about 10 minutes longer to drive to Torrey Pines from LAX, than it is to drive to Soule Park...

I know you're a huge TPS fan...

P.S.  If you wanna catch some good pigskin this weekend, Utah is playing UCLA in the Rose Bowl on Saturday, both are ranked in the top 20 ATM..

Well given he's there for a month, it would seem it might be nice to escape LAX.
Ojai and Soul Park are quite nice and on the way to a lot of nice places.
