    Iím good with any of those choices. Shale Creek (played 18), Fox Meadow (played 9) and Weymouth (played 1, lol) are all top notch courses.

    Hey Roomie, where are we staying again? And did you book the same room all three nights or did you book the first night (Thursday) in Medina before moving to the Akron Hotel?

    Closing in on the 3 week mark. We should probably lock something in for our Friday round. If Paul can get us on at Weymouth, I think that would be a great option. I'll happily play just about anywhere though, I just don't want to wait too long and miss out on playing something nice.

    I agree. I was stoked about playing Weymouth the only chance I had. It was late spring last year and another horrid spring for golf here. I get there and the course wasnít even open. Iíd called the day before and they told me I could play so I just went ahead and headed to the first tee once I found the pro-shop closed. At least I think it was the first tee? Iím still not 100% on that. There were no markers out or anything.

    I took about three practice swings and cold topped one 30ft in front of me. Re-teed and hit an OK drive, and realized I had a shot into a temp green. Hit too much club and dang near hit the real green behind it, and even rolled onto the real green. I left a good ball there (when Iíd called the day before they told me to stay off the real greens-I listened) and looked around for the next tee box, realized it could be one of several places and even then realized I could be hitting the wrong way. Called it a day and headed back to my car.

    Looked like a really nice course but playing a course without the benefit of local knowledge when the tees werenít even set up yet, and no scorecard in your pocket, you just have no clue where the hell to go. Didnít think Iíd have much fun doing that so I left.

    So if Friday AM leads us to Weymouth, oh yeah! If those coming in Thursday want to play (IIRC PKorf isnít so we lose Weymouth and Fox) let me know and I can do the legwork setting it up. Shale Creek is fantastic for a public course. I only played there once, this spring in PKorfís spring Ohio Unofficial thing but itís one of the top 5-10 courses Iíve ever played. You wonít lose much in way of conditions from a country club setting.

    So letís figure out what we want to do Thursday. Iíll take the bull by the horns if yíall want and set something up that day. Iím local enough that I can if needed. I think my roomie is coming in Thursday. I can set up plans for then if needed before gladly handing the reigns over to someone more qualified for Friday. I donít have any connections to play high end Country Clubs (or even low end Country Clubs, lol) but I know Shale Creek is stellar and I know a couple other in the general area that are very good.

    Thursday 2ish? Give me a head count on whoís in that day and Iíll find us somewhere to play. Dinner after? Or just eat at the course/every man for himself? Where are we staying Thursday night roomie? Same hotel as the event or did you book one for Thursday near Medina and the other one for Friday and Saturday?

    I can ferry a guy or two from the course Thursday to our hotel if needed since Iím pretty local and will be driving up. Come to think of it, I can even pick up a guy or two from Cleveland Hopkins if needed Thursday. Itíll be a long and expensive Taxi/Uber ride from there to Medina/Akron if you arenít planning on renting a car.

    Iíll take Thursday and make it happen, just need an idea of everyoneís plans for that day.

    Sorry, hadn't been online to see this. Hotel in Medina Thursday night, the rest downtown Akron. I'm driving as well so while I won't turn down a ride I can also ferry people. I'm not sure when I'll get in on Thursday but if you're looking at 2pm ish for a round I should easily make that.

    Ok so far we have a threesome Thursday with my pardner and my roomie. I could drive back Thursday and come back Friday but since my roomie is staying in Medina Thursday, Iíll just stay to help offset that cost for him. By the time I drive an hour each way I might as well stay splitting a room if thatís good?

    Which hotel in Medina, and are all of the Thursday arrivals staying at the same one? If so Iíll look at golf and food local to it.

    Then Iíll let the much more capableness of Mr Korf (cough something:)) take over for the planning for the Friday AM round. If heís amenable to that idea (which I think he was IIRC?).

    Iím also all ears if someone has specific ideas about a course for Thursday. Right now Iím thinking Shale Creek (itís way nicer than most that I play:)). And I found out earlier this year, it drains pretty darn good. Which hopefully that resolved itself prior so I can quit building this pain in the ass Ark.

    Smiter, sorry for the slow response regarding golf. I'm interested in playing on Thursday but may need to do some work stuff with a colleague who lives in the area. The good news is we may schedule this as a "green room" meeting. These meetings typically last about 4 hours... I should know by the end of next week if this is going to happen. Please move forward without me and I'll ping you if the green room meeting doesn't work out. Thanks again for organizing the round.

    I'm in for Friday.

    Shale creek or Pine Hills are the best options for Thursday. As far as food goes.....I would hold off as I believe there could be some plans in the works for that already to try and have some drinks and fare in the area with some other locals if they have time. Just giving u a heads up there. Right near that hotel in Medina there isnít a ton of options and Iíd think we would venture out a bit. Iím happy to be the guide in that regard....

    I wonít know about Thursday golf for a while. Might be in might be out but either way Iíll meet up at night for the festivities.
