TT Ohio

Hello Team Titleist Ohio just wanted to reach out to everyone again.  At our spring outing we had interest in getting together for a Fall outing.  We had 8 attend our spring outing at TPC Rivers Bend and looking to increase the turnout.  There have been suggestions that Columbus, OH area would be better for everyone and that may increase the turnout.  I know the fall means football season but never too late to get another great outing in with other great Titleist loyalists.  I will send a message out to the FootJoy group to see if anyone from there would be interested in joining us for an outing as well since most on there are also Titleist loyalists.  Anyone have any requests on courses they would like to play in the Columbus area and any dates?  Some had issues in the spring about getting together on a Friday so would a Saturday work better for most?  Just looking at the schedule how about September 13th for a tentative date?  Any thoughts out there are welcome!!!  

My dad and I played at TPC Rivers Bend in the spring and would be open to playing again in the fall in the Columbus area. Murfield would be an ideal course although I am sure it will most likely be too expensive

While Saturdays are ok, there are lots of kid activities in september for anyone with children under 18 potentially...however it increases attendance lets go for it!  We could always aim for a Friday afternoon if that helped?? Regardless, I am looking forward to it!

I would like another outing, and either a Friday afternoon or Saturday would very likely work for me.  I think Columbus would be a good fit for getting the most to attend.

Columbus is definitely a good place to have an event. Obviously with Ohio State football games in the fall that makes it difficult to plan an event. What about a bye week? (Sept. 20 and Oct. 11) Columbus has some solid public courses and fantastic private courses... Can we get on to Muirfield or Scioto Country Club? I'll keep dreaming.

I think where ever we go we should consider courses that are places most of us have not played to make the event more special however Scioto can be challenging to gain entry.  I think many of us know members so if that is a preferred location I could make some calls...it is probably one of the better options.  Any other ideas???

and come to Toledo too!

Scioto is nice but like Chris said will take some work to gain entry for a group without a member.  Muirfield will carry a huge price tag and won't get many to sign on for about $400 per round guest fee.  The Golf Club or Pinnacle Golf Club may be two of the nicest courses that are more realistic to achieve access and for more of a reasonable price.  Anyone in the area have great contacts at either of these two courses?   

I know a member at scioto but he says a member needs to play with each group...thoughts?

I would love to be part of the outing! I live in Coshocton, about an hour east and a little north of Columbus. Longberger is a very nice course in the area. Sean Nicely

What about a less exclusive courses like Worthington Hills or Columbus Country Club? Although I'd still rather do Scioto or The Golf Club since it's not likely we can pull off Muirfield

Did he say it would be possible to have the event?  Like members willing to play with us?  Did he mention the cost per round?  Any connections at The Golf Club?  

I have one connection at The Golf Club, so I can check into that as well.  However, based upon the responses I would like to try and keep the green fees under $150...The Golf Club and Scioto will definitely in that range or even possibly slightly higher.  No question that Longaberger is a great course but is far enough east of columbus that western part of the state might prefer a shorter drive so maybe keeping the course in columbus city area is better.   Cast your vote on a course that is in the Columbus city area or suburbs and would have green fees under $150 complete. I am open to all suggestions...if you really want to go less expensive (like $15)and we have even hosted Scotty Cameron Events there with Scotty in the past, is Tablerock Golf Club just north of Columbus.  Just a thought...

My top 2 courses would be Scioto or The Golf Club due to they are prestigious courses.  I'm with you Chris and keeping the fees in the $150 range would be good to stay around there or lower.  The Golf Club may be a little less strict and more open to letting guests on the course.  I know Pinnacle is nice but don't know any members there.  I could call the Course and see what our options are.  I know "lesser" if you will known private courses that may be much more willing to get us out there and less expensive.  Originally I thought the group wanted higher level courses so I thought that is what we were gearing towards.  Let me know... 

Yeah I would prefer to play Scioto or The Golf Club
