Roll Call “Chicago” (Part 2)

I added myself to the program finally and will be open to challenge (within reason) if you want me to play a hole left handed or with only a putter for a hole ect.

Also adding if you are a refugee donating I will pool names of donations to either @andrewf/@BadBrad or the marathon general group and give away a new IJGA Towel and Tees to one winner. (Just let me know via Dm here or on discord)

Thanks!

Edit: the IJGA is a 501c3 organization and most corporate match programs recognize. If you would like to use that process please note in the donation that it is for the golf marathon

Following up on this-
War at The Shores is the same day and I wanted to see what level interest there still is. We would have to book the tee times ourselves 7 days out.

  • I’m still interested
  • Dense/butthurt
  • I’m willing to help reserve a tee time

Congratulations my fellow beautiful people

Hey! Out of the blue post, but I just moved here to Chicago from Phoenix - living next to Jackson Park and working in the south 'burbs in Homewood. Eager to play golf for under $75/round here - Phoenix has some of the most obscenely expensive courses I’ve ever seen.

Would love to get involved in a golfing community here - Roost seems like a good place to start. I’d love to learn what the Roost around here is up to, or otherwise where there’s active local leagues joining. Value course recommendations also welcome.

Cheers.

Jump on in! Start in the new here/intro section as well. Welcome aboard!

We also have an event on 10/29 - War at the Shores (Check the event page on the refuge!)

Welcome! Living next to Jackson Park sounds pretty awesome, I like playing there, and if you can get out at non peak times it’s easy to play in well under 3 hours.

Da Rap Around Season is currently looking for a sub to come in and fill a spot in Pool 7. You would just need to schedule 1 match each with @golfscout and @Xlink before winter. Top two points getters from your pool advance to a 16 person single elimination match play bracket in the spring.

It’s just for fun, and an excuse to play matches with other Roost members (and Pool 7 has some stars). However, if we successfully complete pool play before Winter I will be procuring a Belt of some kind as a trophy for this thing. Here’s the thread for it, just throw your info in the spreadsheet if you want to join.

This looks extremely fun. I’ll plan on making this. Sounds like a good way to meet some folks.

Is Pool 7 still looking for a sub? Thoughts on courses that are reasonable but enjoyable for matches? (wallet is a-hurtin’ a bit from moving across the country and figuring out housing in the city - need some places that are in the low range for $$$)

Pool 4 is. Our 3rd has been MIA and the other 2 of us already played a match.

Anyone know anything about the Whitetail Ridge dome that’s going up??

@mduenas3 I’m just following instructions.

@xlink and @golfscout would have to answer that. But in my experience 2CGC is a working class roost, and most people I play with are trying to play fun courses that are a good value over expensive courses.

@nschumerth Lots of value golf options. Forest Preserve courses and such are easy on the wallet. Especially now, when prices are typically lower. Let’s play soon if possible, take advantage of this nice fall weather.

Where do you live?

Gentlemen my apologies there no excuses on the lack of communication there. Went through an injury that kept me out of golf all fall and completely spaced on anything golf related

Sorry to hear that. Hope your healing is coming along well.

Hyde Park, but I work in Homewood. I’d love to take advantage of this amazing fall weather (it was what I was most nostalgic for before coming back). I’m all ears for course ideas/deals, especially two weekends from now (27th-29th before the Racine event) or maybe squeezed in on the right weekday afternoon.

You have Calumet and Ravisloe right there for early PM weekday rounds.
