Gives me chills reading about some of the stories from past events. Would be so awesome to be lucky enough to get in this. Such an incredible event.

Days like this, when my lawn is snow covered in April, make me even more excited about the chance to visit golf paradise in December.

The stories you guys tell about the event are incredible. It just doesn't seem real. The fact that normal people get to do these types of things are beyond what dreams are made of.
I wouldn't call THPErs normal... In a good way of course.

...when your lawn is still covered in Snow.

I actually got to play golf twice in December this year. At this rate, I'm not sure I'll get out much more than that in April this year.

I just can't imagine what it's like. I've read through the recaps, followed the live thread. I'm even lucky enough to play Merion yearly and I thought that was golf heaven. This just has to be the utimate event in golf bar none. All I can do is participate and hope.

Same event, same venue, different year.
Just incredible.

The members that play with us, love it. They jump right into the conversation, have fun and enjoy the heck out of it. They are never "in the way" during the heavy part of the competition and will help everybody.
Thought I remembered a previous Grandaddy event where that happened. It is touches like that that make you feel so special

I can only dream of this trip. So much awesomeness that happens is unbelievable.


Also i couldnt imagine The Grandaddy being played any where else but at The Hideaway. Its just such a special place and from reading and watching the last few years the members are something else, so amazing.

Finally entered, and after listening to the Finley interview with his description of the Granddaddy I am even more amazed at how awesome THP events are.

Fortunately this year my battalion is not handling getting soldiers on holiday leave, so I should be free in December for the best Christmas present ever.
