New to the Area, looking to meet new people, and do some golfing!!

Recommended Posts

Hello, My family and I moved here at the end of February. We moved here from Pennsylvania, no family or friends. We really love it so far and are trying to make some friends and get used to everything that MN has to offer. We both work at St. joseph's hospital, wife in the ICU and I work in the ER.

I would like to really get out and do some golfing. Wife does not golf and children which are younger are not really into it either. I would like to get some inside info from some local golfers and maybe get to go out and play some rounds if anyone is looking for an extra person. I thought I would try this board to see what happens. Would like to meet some people and make some friends here.

As for my ability, I would say right now that I am rusty, as have not hit a ball since july last year. 2 years ago I was low 80's High 70's on my better days.

Let me know if anyone is up to showing a new resident around any courses.

Thanks in advance

Hey bigbee, I would have no problem playing a few rounds with you but I only get down to the cities a few days a week now so don't play much in the city anymore.

One suggestion I can give you is just show up at a course and try to get on. They will almost always set you up with someone and without fail they have always been good people. Golfers are allot like fisherman mostly all good people willing to except others. One course I would suggest is Columbia. It is right in the city up 65 (central ave.) so it should be real close for you. It is also a fairly nice course and there are always singles and doubles you can hook up with.

Keep you head down!

fishorgolf, thanks for the response. I actually live in White Bear Lake, and I have no problem doing a little traveling, so sometime this season will have to get together for a round or two.

I figured I would have to just go to some courses and try and get paired up with a person or two. I have found out that either fishing or golfing, does not matter the people are usually friendly and you end meeting some nice people. I will have to check out columbia.

Thanks again!

Welcome to Mn. Bigbee13, There are alot of great places to golf and or fish around here. I usually shoot in the high seventies or low eighties...........but if it gets any warmer then that I stay inside:) Right in your area you have Keller, Oneka, Tanners Brook, Chominoix, Oak Glen, Applewood, St. Croix national just to name a few courses all within a 1/2 hour or lees from White Bear. I'm sure there are many more but those are just the public courses that I could come up with off the top of my head.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
