Knowing THPers, there will be several extra rounds or other activities scheduled. We can use this to keep travel ideas and extra round info off the main event thread.

Unfortunately, my work schedule is such that I won't be able to play any additional rounds. One of the reasons I started this thread is so I can live vicariously through everyone else.

that was a fluke heat wave and I felt so sorry for the guys but they powered through it. I should have recommend they get one of those cooling towels. Lucky for us, November will be awesome weather and we don't have to worry about dying if we want to drink a beer lol

Isn’t the Boulders not too far out of the way. If anyone wants to go out of the area, about 30-45 minutes to the north west is a great course called Quintero.

I was one of those guys. Regardless, I'm really looking forward to going back in November.

It’s nice that this backs up to Veterans Day to have Monday off. I’m keeping an eye on flights which will determine my schedule but I would love to get an extra round (or 2) in if possible!

I was out there this summer. I played Troon North and Grayhawk. Both were awesome. I don’t think I’ll be able to get any extra rounds in, but I would highly recommended both courses!

Just booked my flights. I’m arriving at 2:30 on Friday and fly out around Noon on Monday. Unfortunately this won’t leave a ton of time for extra rounds. Maybe Sunday evening? I plan to Uber to the resort unless someone else is flying in around the same time that I can hitch a ride with.
Anyone else booked flights yet?

Thank you. I definitly will. It is always difficult heading back to the "real world" after a THP event.

Unfortunately, it's the last flight out that doesn't require changing planes, even though it's not a non-stop. I hate to give "Murphy" more chances at my clubs than I have to.

You will probably have to skip the food and drinks post golf, but should make it.

In other words:
Make sure you know what irons you want, you won’t have a lot of time to think about it on Sunday after we win!

I would hate to do that.

I will double check when I get home tonight. IIRC there are only two flights after mine with the last one just over an hour later.

This whole work thing really interferes with THP, only a couple of more years.

Hey, that's a cute design. Did the R&D guys approve your request to add it to your driver's crown?
