ROAD TRIP! 13 days, 9 states

Hey Refugees,

I am starting a road trip this Friday (21st of August). I am looking for some recommendations of places to eat or roadside attractions to see. Im trying to plan some golf, and I am always down to meet up with some guis. I am pulling a small trailer with my truck and will be going solo. I am bringing the sticks to play some awesome golf on this trip. I haven’t booked anything yet so I am completely open. I have a few courses on my planned itinerary, but I don’t have anything locked in yet.

I’m open to all suggestions on golf, and especially want to meet up with some people.

here is the current plan:

Sooooo stoked you’re doing this though! I was beginning to think it wasn’t happening.

Listen, I am just trying to figure out wtf is going on here. You casually drop that you are going to play CGC, one of the toughest courses to get on in the country, means you will be questioned.

I was too! I got the job lined up so I realized a free two weeks and I’m taking advantage.
@JBors one of my college teammates is from Chicago, and I am trying to see if his dad can get me on with some of his friends.

Peoria is a 1.5 hour drive for me, Chicago a 2.5. I’d love to meet up and play golf with you during this trip if it works out!
