I think Jimmy and Nick usually throw something together for Friday golf. I land at Midway around 9:30 on Friday and would be up for some late morning golf. If not, I'll be grabbing a sandwich at Portillo's and hitting the driving range.

In the past we've had anywhere from 2 to 5 4-somes for Friday morning, then time to relax and change before the party Friday night.  I'll be out there Tuesday night with a college buddy who lives out there, so I'm definitely in for Friday golf.  Nothing official but they can help set something up in the area.

Question for those going or have gone in the past.  Do you usually go by yourself?  This will be my first and I don't know anyone personally and wanted to get an idea what to expect.
Only one rule, Leave Rebecca be, she mine when I finally get my arse over there. You'll need a whole lot more experience than a couple of HMM's to handle that girl.

Enjoy yourself

Come on T, two HMMs?  I have had a BB8 and a studio stock from a couple of years ago too ;-P

Tony, I thought I saw a small-booty blade in your putter collection.  Were you going through a booty crisis then?

Always golf on Friday!  Depending on when you get there golf on Thursday, too!  The year I met Matt we met up Thursday and played over at Cog Hill.  That year we played over at Prarie Landing and then last year we hit up a different track although there were fewer of us that year.  After golf Friday the last two years it's been a quick trip to Buffalo Wild Wings before showering and social that night.  Always a great time and like CPP said, it's always a little weird meeting people you only talk to on the internet, but once you get to talking it's all good.  Sometimes it'd be easier just putting your puttertalk name on your tag friday night!

Is Cog Hill considered to be the best course the public can play in the Chicagoland area?

This is how close I am to making a decision.  Nice sticky on my computer, huh?

Cog Hill has 4 courses and #4 is Dubsdread, where they had the BMW for at least a few years recently.  It has the Sub-air system under the greens so they rolled nice even after the thunderstorm Felix flew in on that year.  I enjoyed it as I had gone to the BMW in the past and remembered some memorable shots from the pros (and my subsequent hacks).  It was on the higher side- around $150 with cart.  The other 3 are under $75.  Some of the local guys can chime in on more in that area, as I have played a few more on the North side. 

Another point - Felix renamed #4 the Beach after he spent 4 hours testing the sand in each bunker on the course!

NO! Dubs is pretty much the worst value course you can play in the Chicagoland area though!

Guys, just play harborside, my personal favorite in the chicagoland area, they have two courses( i prefer the port course ) both of which are really cool. It's built on an old landfill. The wind always blows and there are a couple great shots of the chicago skyline you get as you play.

Dubbs is a very nice track as well, but a little overpriced IMO.

That's it! No more putters....for at least a week:)

What time are you guys thinking about golfing on Friday? I land at 9:15 at Midway. That might rule out golfing for me, but should allow plenty of time to hit up Portillo's and the driving range!

Just got through a qualifier today for one of the 4 local amateur majors here.

Tourney dates are 5-8 with cuts after each of the first two days. 

Might be in a pickle if I get past the first two days.

Good luck Jimmy - No worries about the Social, if you're competing for another championship with a Bettinardi.  You'd be the first one to win with a 54 !!
