Travel & Extra Round Thread: 2019 Ultimate Club Testing with Titleist T Series Irons

The Ultimate Club Testing event with Titleist will be upon us in 39 days so planning needs to start asap.

Anyone arriving before Friday? Who's staying until Monday? Who wants to share a rental car? Anyone interested in an extra round? And most important; who has connections at Augusta and can they get us a tee time? :D

Atlanta seems to be the obvious airport choice. Chateau Elan is 56 miles from ATL but calculating traffic into the travel time is a wild card.

Thanks for setting up the thread vortex. I live on the east side of Atlanta so I’ll be driving there on Friday. If y’all have any questions about the Atlanta area let me know.

5:20 AM departure on Friday arriving ATL at 8:45? This solution only has merit if people are interested in a social round before the event. This means traveling with a few extra clubs but I'm down for the struggle. If not, then I'll probably arrive around noon.

The 9:30 PM departure on Sunday is the cheapest flight but there's a 7:30 too. Of course, I'm thinking replay on Sunday afternoon and then catching the 9:30. Decisions, decisions....

I’d take I-285 east around Atlanta rather than go up through downtown even later in the morning. They don’t call the connector the land of the never ending accident for nothing.

I can be there whenever. I’d possibly be up for a round Friday earlier before things get started.

Reunion Country Club is really close to Chateau Elan and might be a good pre event round. I haven’t played there but it looks nice and bonus not all that expensive.

Have you picked a return flight? It sounds like LSMO, you and I could land before 9:00 on Friday. Wluker17 is local and Chasdog is flexible.

It is not that bad if you know what areas to avoid and when.

This event is associated with Titleist...I assume, do they ever post on their forum about this kind of event?

No idea, honestly never been on their forum. We certainly don’t mind if anybody wants to share a link so their fans can follow along though.
