    Thanks for starting the thread Crest! I've seen some locals on here, and even met Vince in MB at the invitational last year.

    I'm out of town this weekend, but played the Oaks course a few weeks ago. Was in good shape, but I forgot how punishing that course can be if you're driver is all over the place like mine was!

    I have played Renditions a few times. It's a fun course but not really worth the $ IMO but will play it again. I have played VA Oaks probably 10 times, last year they lost one of the 9's, but it has come back. I am a member at Heritage Hunt which is right up the street fro VA Oaks and while it's a tough course it is very fun. More than willing to have you all out if you wish. JonD is in South Riding I believe, thats a fun course as well. One of my favorites is Bull Run (off of 15 in Haymarket) while expensive now that Raspberry took it over it is still a great course. Once June hits I am pretty busy with work thru August but can try and play on Sundays and weekday afternoons.

    Bull Run is one of my favorite courses too. I generally stick to off-season or GolfNow times due to the cost. The Raspberry Falls mgmt team has definitely turned it around. Sounds to me like there's gonna be some Sunday hackers rounds this summer!

    Sounds like a plan. I played Bull Run a few weeks ago and the greens were ok and fairways were nice. I was 10 yards short of the green on #8, love that hole. We should get everyones cell numbers that are interested in playing, through PM's. My work schedule now is 5am-1:30pm but will wind up being 5am-3:30pm once school gets out. So if anyone wants to play a weekday round I can get my co-worker to cover as long as the course is a reasonable distance to me. I am working in the Alexandria/Annandale area for the next 2-3 years if that helps but live outside of Warrenton.

    You got it man. I met Vince at the AC outing earlier this month and we talked about getting a round sometime soon.

    I have never played VA Oaks but I am gonna check it out.

    We could do some polls and see what up coming weekends would work for people. Just a thought for the future.

    Vince where in Alexandria/Annandale are you working? If not golf then we should meet up for a beverage or 2 if you get the chance.

    Damn 5 am is an early wake up call man.

    On a side note I was going to DE last weekend and saw the sign for Renditions golf course, I haven't played it yet but a buddy of mine has and said it is incredible. Pricey but worth it. Any of you play there?
    I played it last Saturday. Cool holes, but the conditions never match up to the price they charge. By mid June, the greens will be burned up in spots like always - but you won't see a lower price. I did birdie # 17 at TPC though and play Amen corner in 2 over!

    Great thread.

    I am in the Gambills/Crofton area. This is close to Bowie and Annapolis.
    I am going to play Renditions today. Looks like a good day for it.

    Don't worry Big we will get something set up soon. I think it is tough for people with next weekend being Memorial Day ( I will be out of town myself) but I think that if we give people enough notice to plan we can make something work.
