Its time for the annual trip to Dana Point and Monarch Beach Golf Course! I have room for up to 24 players on Sunday August 15th at $135.
This rate is about half the regular price for this course. It will be nice and cool with ocean breezes with plenty of opportunities for glory and many others for doom.
This will be a club championship qualifier for August.
You will pay your green fee when you arrive at the course.
Guests are welcome if we are not full 7 days prior.
The RSVP will close on August 12th at 5 pm. Any cancellations after that time or no-shows will be charged $20 (per the policy) plus any green fee the course charges us. Please review our late cancellation and no show policy and keep track of your RSVP!
Stroke of Luck is going to Ireland in 2021!
The dates are set for August 17th thru August 29th 2021. The budget will be similar to past trips with the golf @ $1,100 including the # 1 golf course in the world and land package of $2,695 for the land (based on 16 pax) and double occupancy. A single room is a $885 more.
For the 25 of you that went previously in 2014 (and also 8 in 2017) and want revenge; you now have that opportunity.
It will be a similar structure to the previous trips with a package that is inclusive with hotel, taxes, tips, breakfast each day, touring per the itinerary and a private driver guide throughout the journey.
This trip will feature Ireland’s Hidden Gem Golf courses – Five golf courses that the typical Ireland golf trip will rarely include as well as 2 “Majors” including the # 1 Golf Course in the WORLD – Royal County Down!!! I want to provide full disclosure though, our warm-up round is not a Links (parkland course) and is included to break you in to the torture they call the “love grass” as gently as possible.
We will be quite pampered with several great and unique properties for our accommodation including Lough Erne (5 STAR) and the Slieve Donard and others with brilliant spas/leisure centers. Accommodations were selected with a focus on the most freedom/free time which includes easy access (walking from your hotel room) to the town, food, shopping and night life. We will visit some historic sites including the most traditional Irish town in the world – Clifden (they still speak Gaelic as a first language here) in addition to visiting Donegal Castle, Connemara National Park and the Cliffs of Mohr.
Oh, I am not done yet! Each night (New Castle, Donegal, Westport and Galway) we will have opportunity to check out live music called “sessions” and hit every “Murphy’s” pub we can find should you be so inclined 😊.
The Irish people are friendly and fun and the traditional and chef inspired cuisine will complete the experience.
A non-refundable deposit of $250 is required to hold a spot.
If you have additional questions please send me an email.
Time to try some OLD stomping grounds at the Gold Club of California in Fallbrook with tee times starting at 1 pm. We have room for up to 24 players at a smoking rate of $59 with tee time increments of 10 minutes which is great! Range balls will be an extra cost.
We will play the "net birdie or better game". 1 point for a net birdie; 2 points for a net eagle; 3 points for a net albatross. The group with the most points will win a prize so choose your pairings wisely. Let's have fun and enjoy our time together!
The RSVP will close on August 26th at 5 pm after which the late cancellation and no show policy apply.
Holiday TREAT TIME for YOU (and me)! Yes AGAIN for the 11th year! We are STILL going to have a longish weekend at the Waldorf Astoria 5 Star La Quinta Resort for a SUPER DISCOUNT during their prime golf season!!! We can't miss with average temperatures of 74 degrees in December in Palm Springs! We will arrive in December 3rd and Depart on December 5th and get up to 3 rounds of golf in!
We were only allocated 28 spaces for this trip. A deposit of $200 must be paid by June 1st and can be paid by Zelle or Venmo. A reminder will be sent prior to the deadline to those who have signed up. See details below on costs. There are no refunds for this trip unless the trip is cancelled or you find a replacement for yourself that can fill the spot you have established. The final payment is due October 31st for the balance due.
We have had the same price for FOUR YEARS. Finally there is a price increase because someone bought those lovely golf courses and they are charging MORE!
The package (based on double occupancy) includes 2 nights accommodations, resort fees and 2 ROUNDS OF GOLF with the ability to sign up for a third round of up to 18 holes for Friday if space is available 7 days in advance (tee time 12 pm or later - all included)!!! The price per person only $479 (double golfer room) and $729 if you want a single room or a room with a non-golfing guest. It includes the Mountain and the Nicklaus Golf Course this year! It is an unlimited golf package so after your round if you want to play a few more holes, just go to the Pro Shop and they will get you back out there. We will do our traditional doubles match play on Saturday at the Nicklaus Course with TEAM SANTA FACING OFF AGAINST TEAM ELVES (OR SIMILAR).
The cost of the golf alone is approximately $140 - $160 per round BUT NOT FOR US!!! Please note single room or non-golfing guest in your RSVP. Please note your roommate if you have one arranged. Everyone is responsible to find their own roommate.
We will golf the following courses:
• Nicklaus Course - December 4th
• Mountain - December 5th
We "should" be able to get nearly 18 holes in on Friday December 3rd on courses that are available. We will be able to confirm tee spots 7 days in advance. The normal policy is to book the day of for arrival day golf so another deal for us!
The courses will be in prime condition after all the course maintenance work in October and early November.
Space is limited to the 24 spots. Non-golfing guests are welcome to join us and enjoy all the resort amenities and join us for all the other non-golf activities.
