    . Probably my favorite public track in Birmingham. I prefer it to the RTJ courses.

    Ballantrae having a member guest Saturday morning. It's hard as fuck to play golf in y'all's town.

    Did you try Highlands or do you already have that booked for another time?

    Lots of folks trying to get in a round before football games start. Try calling Bent Brook, too. I like Bent Brook a lot.

    Do you already have tee times somewhere? I know your buddy doesn’t want to shell out the money, but y’all should definitely play Purcell. It will be a bit of a hike to get out there, though.

    Those Bent Brook tee times are almost never available until the afternoon on the weekends. I’m pretty sure their regulars have standing tee times and permanently hold the choice tee times because I’ve checked the website 7 days out multiple times and it seems like they’re already blocked off because nothing is available.

    Bent brook has nothing.

    Going to play farm links. That's what I wanted to do all along so I'm glad it's working out. Cheapest guy in the group is out with long covid so silver lining I guess.

    ah. i lived over there for several years after college and played just about every public course around town. We liked to play The Frog out in Villa Rica on the way back to Alabama.

    The Frog is a really solid value. I play it a few times a year.

    I am planning our yearly golf trip with buddies from college and we considered pulling the trigger on Purcell. It's just ridiculously expensive to stay and play down there relative to other resorts. We will probably head back to Ole Waverly.

    I shot a million at Mossy Oak but really enjoyed how different it was than Waverly. It's a great resort and I don't think you can get better value anywhere else in the Southeast.

    Which Saws you planning on? Always a difficult choice for me because they all have different menus.

    Only one place to get the ribs though, and that’s the original in Homewood.

    On a Saturday afternoon Juke Joint will have the games on. Could also eat a Soul Kitchen and watch games at Avondale. With Auburn early and Bama and night they will likely have UGa on the projector.

    Has anyone ever had the dry aged bone in Kansas city strip at Helen? I've seen a ton of people recommend the ribeye but strip is slightly bigger and way more expensive. Is that like their signature cut?

    Have changed my Ross bridge tee time Sunday morning to the Oxmoore par 3. I want to get back to Atlanta incase the Braves have a home game.

    May hit Milo's on way out. Can't be as bad as Jack's.
