Could do an east coast and west coast tourney. Then maybe a ToC later in the year. I like Phoenix or Vegas personally.  Though myrtle is fine too...hell, just about anywhere would be fun.

I've never been to one of these, but judging by all I see on the forums, the 300 YD marker on the range will be gone by the time GOLFWRX is gone. ;)

Ok, I'm with the west coast guys too only because Carlsbad is such a mecca for all of us.  As far as timing?  That depends when the new stuff is released in Spring and will I have it in time for the first tee time?  I'm okay with cutting it close, I mean, c'mon, we've all walked to the tee taking plastic off the head and peeling price tags off at one point or another...

Great idea.  If March wins out please try to keep it early in the month to avoid kids spring breaks or if February avoid Presidents weekend.  See you at the tourny....
February in Myrtle Beach can be brutal.  Not always, but you certainly run the risk of a weekend with temps in the 30's.

They are definitely looking at Myrtle Beach for the venue.  No poll option on location.

Looks like everything else is negotiable :D

Agreed.  This is a really tough thing to plan and pull off.  No matter how well of job they do, and I no doubt believe it will be an exceptional event, they will not please most people. I used to plan an annual golf road trip and even with just 12 guys all from the same area you can't please everyone.

Guys on the west coast are going to complain or feel it should be out there...maybe rotate it every year..west coast, east coast, central...etc.

So to Richard and Rob and the guys planning it.  Take all the complaints with a grain of salt, it's a near impossible task and I know the majority of the members here apprecicate the effort it will take to plan and coordiante this.

edit: oh and before anyone gives me grief on my screen name and the location.  North Carolina is where I'm from, not where I currently live.  it will still be a full days drive for me to make it :)

I can just imagine the scene now.

Clubs will be freshly painted/stamped and glistening, bright outfits will be cleaned and pressed, and our horrible golf swings will be on display out from internet anonymity.

Come on, by holding it in March we can blame our suddenly average games on the winter rust.....  I would like to see some smooth 120 MPH swings and 300+ carries in person though....

I would do my best to go. I definitely like a town like Myrtle Beach that is completely designed for golf and tourists to make transportation easiest.  Golf by day, seafood buffet, bar, and crazy drinking putt putt tourneys at night.  Who will be that guy who brings his own putter and ball to the mini golf course?

Wait a sec..... how can southwest not fly to Myrtle Beach?  Bummer....  I'd still go but I'd probably be late because I'd have to fly Delta....  Or suck it up and drive the 10 hours

Myrtle in march is pretty good. Weather is usually decent, prices typically havent gone up yet.  Ton of above average courses. Many economical places to stay at. This could be fun. I cant wait until its a couple weeks out, and everyone on here starts posting about the new move they are working on, and how its working but they lost some distance and arent hitting it 300 right then. But their distance will come back, right after this event.

Would have to say have it somewhere more central in the country, something easy/cheap to fly in and out of, vs relatively pricy Myrtle Beach. Other than that I concur with trying to avoid Spring Break....

Cool to see that this might actually happen. I'd love to go, but I don't know if Ill be able to afford the trip.

Either way, I think it's important to thank those involved with putting this together. It sounds like a ton of work to organize a golf trip for a group as big as this one could be. Especially when trying to make as many people happy as possible and getting OEMs to attend. Those involved in the organizing of this deserve our appreciation for putting in all the work to give us this opportunity.

TPC is so overrated. It's not even top 10 here.
