2023 Midwest Mashie - Kirtland CC / Cleveland October 11-12 2023 (Not a Sign Up)

The East now holds the Mashie. It is only only fitting that we head east of Lake Michigan to celebrate the reclamation of the Mashie by the East Team. Your Mashie committee is ecstatic to share that the Kirtland Country Club in Cleveland Ohio has graced the Midwest Mashie with two days of golf and camaraderie at their Charles Hugh Alison course.  The club is in the final stages of a dramatic restoration led by Jim Nagle of Forse Design.

Any assemblage of Post-Covid Tee times is rare. Two days of tee times at a course with this level of active GCA is like getting group trail rides on two-horned unicorns. Add to that, there are a lot of GCA inspired events these days. No hate here as GCA Appreciation is a great thing for all of golf. Popularization of GCA appreciation has roots inside of this very organization. We actively applaud, celebrate, and participate in the currently wide demographic of groups holding GCA inspired outings. The fact the Mashie is still able to secure a two-day outing in this climate is a testament to our long history of GCA events, our reverence, and reputation of respect for both the architecture and access.

Thanks to peer pressure, Golf Archie Jimmy Nagle has confirmed that he will join us at the Mashie.

GCAtlas folks that have previously been to Kirtland will be fairly shocked by the transformation. Do not sign up here as we are still finalizing details but do stay tuned for updates. As is the current custom of the Mashie, previous attendees of multiple mashies are offered the chance to pre-register and they are listed below. We have ample room for attendees up to about 40 so join in as we would love to have you and there always seems to end up being room. We have also accommodated a few that have reached out across multiple digital media.

Only sign up on this thread by hitting reply. As always, make sure your GCA messaging contact is up to date as signup confirmations, fees and other details will be sent privately.

Best
V, George, Thurm, Criss and Pat

A very cool place. Don't know whether I'll be able to make it, but get GM Mark Petzing to show you Hugh Alison's original letter of engagement, handwritten by him on notepaper from the Statler Hotel in Cleveland (now an apartment block). If he was writing his own terms, safe to say the club was pretty keen to secure his services!

9 years later, we return to the city where the East got its first win. This must be what Lebron felt like in the summer of 2014. Except he was coming off a loss in the NBA Finals (which, as you know, are widely considered the Midwest Mashie of Professional Basketball).

Wouldn't these technically be "bicorns"?

Pondering.
Perhaps, although I believe ĒbiĒ possibly implies an assumption with regard to the 'x'-corn's sexual preferences.
I am however comfortable with "Multi-corn".

This sounds wonderful. I will certainly make it if I can.


Perhaps as a Committee member I should know this, but wanted ton confirm the rough outline of the event? Guessing afternoon round on the 11th, and morning-ish round on the 12th?

Vaughn,


Manakiki Golf Course (D. Ross) is one exit away on I-90. I'm sure we could set something up over there. It's about a 10-minute drive from KCC.

I have had the good fortune to play KCC on a few occasions.  It is a true gem.  One of the best back nines youíll ever have the chance to play. The Chagrin River bisects the back.  For the ones fortunate to play the Mashie itíll be a memorable experience.  Enjoy!

Looking forward to the Midwest Mashie.  Kirtland is always a great place to hangout and enjoy the course, Clubhouse, members and their triumvirate of professionals.  Here are some of the details of the work that started late last Summer and is wrapping up this week.  All of the bunkers have been rebuilt.  In 2007 when we completed the last rebuild we didn't have the bunker construction materials (liners) we have today.  That limited our abilities to raise the faces as was seen in many of the old photos of the course.  This go around we were able to flash the faces significantly on the bunkers which has had a very dramatic impact on the course aesthetics.  Alison certainly held true to his liking of deep, bold green side bunkers on many of the holes at KCC.  Fairway bunkers were also rebuilt.  Two added items were the complete rebuild of the 16th green where, while cleaning out the previous green, the team discovered the original clay tiles from the original green.  This enabled us to rebuild the green at the elevation Alison intended.  The front right and middle right of the 3rd green was altered to regain lost hole locations.  For this par 3 the right side has been uncuppable for decades.  These may be come some of the more challenging holes locations on the course.  The 8th hole includes the reinstatement of a cross-bunker jutting into the right side of the fairway.  The bunker was previously added to the left side.  Thankfully, the membership bought into it being properly placed this go around.  Roll-off was added left of the 8th green.  Very little fairway expansions or alterations were added.  Most of these were completed in 2016.  However, the left side of the 14th fairway is likely to be expanded this Fall.  Most of the greens were expanded in either 2007 or 2016.  Structurally not much has changed at Kirtland.  But, the aesthetics and playability of the bunkers has changed drastically.  One added bonus was the reinstatement of a long thin bunker left of the 18th fairway along the fall-off into the woods.  A culling of the trees between 4 & 5, 2, 7 & 8, and quite a few between 15 & 16 has really opened up portions of the property. 


Looking forward to an opening day celebration in early May.  Hope many of you can make it out for the Mashie. 
I will post photos soon.



It's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or the doer of deeds could have done better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; .....  "The Critic"

We have the little sibling of Kirtland here in western New York. (https://www.golfwrx.com/709661/2023-pga-championship-preview-the-other-wny-club-that-hosted-the-pga/)

Park Club is quite reminiscent of its fellow Alison course, and is gentler in every facet: the presence of the river, the fierceness of the greens, the intensity of the vertical drop and rise.

Park does have a Wendehack clubhouse and a really cool 18th green approach. Ian Andrew did fine work rousting Park Club from slumber. I was at Kirtland in 2021, I believe. Loved it.

Still teaching and coaching, so I shan't be at the Mashie. Those who attend will enjoy themselves.
