My flights are booked.

Fly into JAX late Thursday night and fly out of Jax at 8:30pm Sunday night.

Staying at the airport Hyatt

I'm renting a car and driving down Friday.

This is similar to what I did last year and it worked out pretty well.

If Daytona is not an option for people, I definitely recommend JAX as the next best airport for this event.

JAX is easy in and out and less than an hour and a half drive to the resort.

If you're waiting on other folks to arrive, Sam Snead's tavern is just outside security so you can grab your bags and head back to wait.

You take 95 down from JAX or take the scenic route down A1A?

JAX is probably the better option, but MCO is going to have super cheap flights for those and hey you could extend the trip and see Mickey.

Highly recommend leaving the irons at home and playing a round Friday driver/wood only. Was a nice ice breaking round last year where the only goal was having fun

I hated that someone beat me and my full set of clubs with only drivers and hybrids and wedges. Sad. Day.

Yeah, that was wild, shows how much managing the course plays into a round hahaha

I shot a sweet 84 I think without the irons so I think that’s the score to beat

Going to be spending Thursday night in JAX too. Hoping I can call a spot in the car for the ride down Friday?
