Maxamania III - Detroit, MI - May 20,2023 - We're Back!

Great to see all the positive reflections on the past weekend’s events! UofM with @FastEddie64, @alhunter, and @jimmay was a blast, and it brought me a lot of joy to witness how much my out-of-town playing partners appreciated the course architecture and diabolical greens. @Plod123, @joshmckenna, and Jon were all supportive quota round partners at Max, helping locate my errant shots and celebrating my occasional good ones with me.

Met a lot a cool people, and had many positive interactions with everyone. My only negative takeaway is that I know there was still a whole bunch of people there that I didn’t get a chance to meet.


I couldn’t agree more, Ed! It was such a pleasure meeting all of you and I can’t wait for the next one.


Phew I was worried when this started that I might get popped. Glad our time playing UofM Friday wasn’t a huge pain!

It truly was awesome fun playing the event, meeting new people, and eating way too much (particulary donuts - I ate some many damn donuts).

My main memory though might not be the golf but Friday at Hopcat. Our server was delightful, if not particulary quick, and then having Jake take us to the late night pastry place a few doors down the road for a second dessert was the perfect capper to a great day.


This is what they call ‘the secret sauce’ lol

Belle isle is legit. Some good diners and such as well.

I really miss sunset grill in Allston. RIP in pieces.

What ever happened to the golf course on belle isle? Or is that a figment of my imagination?

There’s still a driving range there though, I think with Top Tracer? They just opened a little 6 hole pitch and putt in the last couple years as well. I’ve been meaning to go check it out someday


It’s a decent enough little pitch and putt. Conditioning is alright but they’re working to improve it. You really only need a single wedge and putter. Good for those with little kids to take them out.


very different bell isle haha

I bet it doesn’t hold a candle to the private and exclusive 9 hole pitch and putt we have here in Waterloo:


I hate to break it to you, but there’s only one real Belle Isle, and that ain’t it!

His post about amazing diners on Belle Isle had me questioning if I had actually been there.
