What we're about

http://photos2.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/8/2/3/a/event_11073338.jpeg Meet other local Golfers who can't always find a golf partner and want to get out on the links.

We are made up of a group of people (married and single) who love chasing that little 'ole white (orange, yellow, green, blue or pink) ball around. We've even done it in the dark. Being a good golfer is not a prerequisite or a necessity, as we are just about enjoying the game and most importantly being outside. Having fun is a necessity and there is no need to even keep score, unless you want to that is.

Newcomers, seasoned golfers and especially those hackers, are encouraged to come on out to play with us. We try to get to different courses throughout the Twin Cities and Wisconsin. Trying different courses is a lot of fun and in some cases challenging. Whether choosing to play 9 or 18 holes it doesn't matter, as we'll accomodate all to the best of our ability.

Golf with the Animals at Como Park

Needs a location

Saturday is supposed to be a beautiful day, so lets get out there and swing the clubs and maybe we can hear the monkeys on a couple of holes. We have a rate of $39 with cart. That is a Pioneer Press coupon rate. Some of you may have received that coupon. If you didn't don't worry, they are giving the entire group the $39 rate. Tee times & Pairings: 12:16 p.m Carol, Jay, Sue, Jane 12:24 p.m. CJ, Anne, Terry, Bob Cuzzy's at the clubhouse afterwards is where we'll meet afterwards. Cancellation policy: 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23rd. See below for more information on cancellation policy. New for this year is that group sizes may be smaller and after this event there will be a $2 reservation fee attached to all events where you don't pay the golf course in advance. So that means Stonebrooke is exempt from the new reservation fee. Also new for this year is that we will be keeping track of no shows and cancellations. After 3 no-shows the individual will be removed from the group.

Golf & Graze or Hack & Snack

Needs a location

This is a great opportunity for those of you who are just starting to golf or who need a warm up session. We will be golfing an executive 9-hole course and it only takes 2 hours to complete the course. You don't have to count your strokes, you don't have to even tee off if you don't want to. Just come out, have some fun and laughs with people who may or may not keep score. Who may pull a "foot wedge" out of their bag or who may just pick up their ball and place it next to the person who drove the ball the furthest. This event is all about having some fun, laughs and getting out there to hit that "little 'ole white ball." (Or an orange or even a pink one. No one will care.) Afterwards the laughter will continue at a local watering hole. Cost $15 to walk 9 holes; and if you are 62 or older the cost is $26 for 9 holes and a cart. Tee times & Pairing: 5:04 p.m. 5:12 p.m.

Dwan in Bloomington

Dwan Golf Club

$2.00

Dwan is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 1. Tentatively because public tee times aren't available at this course until a week out. I'm shooting for 3-4 tee times starting around noon. I will add per round costs once I confirm with Dwan, but generally it's around $50 to play 18 there with a riding cart. So, if you want to join us on this very playable, fun course then sign up. If we can't get in at Dwan, I'll try for another course. After golf, we can head to Cowboy Jacks in Bloomington near Southtown Mall for dinner. Starting with this event, there will be a $2 non-refundable per event reservation fee. This helps us discourage no shows, which depending on the course, may have to be funded by the organizer (me, in this case). It also helps fund the annual cost for having this site on meetup. This fee does not go toward your green fees. You will pay that in the clubhouse before your round. If you sign up and need to cancel, do so before Thursday, May 30 at noon when the reservations close. I'll send out tee times and pairings Thursday night.
