Kimble Golf Club

10 posts in this topic

Just got back from playing Kimble. Wow, what a tough course. It has some really neat holes, that seem to be better to just look at, than play. smile I had played it once back in '95, but I didn't remember it being that tough.

If you think, "You're da man", play this course. Very humbling.

Definately a tough course. A few too many blind shots for my liking but with all the hills not much choice.

You mean the Kimball Golf Course right?

I love playing golf there. It is indeed a difficult course with all the different hills and slopes and water hazards. Love the hole with the island grenn (I want to say hole 15?)

Can't say I've ever shot below 100 there before grin. I am sloppy on the greens though.

Just surfing the golf posts for a change...Saw Kimball...Was a member out there 10 years ago. Haven't been there in at least 8. Don't get that way much anymore. Are the greens still nice? I usually walked away hating it or loving it. Pretty cool course though. Couple funky holes, but kinda expect that with the terrain. Shot the best round of my life out there. Won't say what cause you guys wouldn't believe it anyway. Be fun to go back again to check it out.

There are actually a couple of greens that are in rough shape, but for the most part they are decent.

I usually play courses based on the condition of their greens. The faster the better, and that usually means they're in good shape, too. Kimball's used to be really nice when i played there back then.

I played Grey Stone up in Sauk Centre Sunday for the first time. $25 after 4 PM, which includes cart. Real nice course and the greens were smokin'!! Very fast. The wind was kranking and made the upwind holes pretty tough. But it also made the downwind holes pretty fun.

Most were in good shape but the 13th was really rough when we were there Sunday. It wasn't that way a few weeks ago. Definitely our favorite course with a a lot beautiful holes to play. we usually play it a dozen or so times a summer.

Went to Greystone yesterday the greens were like putting on a glass table. All I can say is wow!! If you were above the hole there was no way possible to get close.

Now that's what I'm talkin bout. I like to practice on linoleum. After that they all feel like shag carpet.

    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
    •   Have you tried to get it out in the water and running it at higher speeds for a while to see if it will clear it's self?
    • Trying to get some idea as to how much I will need to spend to get my 1997 Yamaha 30 hp running again.  The motor sat for nearly 11/2 yrs after I had bought it. before I got around to starting it in Oct.  I followed the owner's manual recommendation to use pre-mix 50:1 gas oil, even though it has oil injection.  Anyway, motor would start(Elec. start), not real quickly, but after starting, would begin to cough and then choke out after a few seconds.This happened repeatedly despite different choke settings, etc.until I finally thought it better to quit fooling with it.  Called a repair place in my hometown outside the metro and he wanted to wait till Spring to look at it.  Said it probably needs new carb kits or carbs and plugs.  Also want him to put in new impeller and lower unit seals. Just wondering what an ave. fair price would be to have that done, provided there isn't anything else wrong?  I live in SW Metro area, but really don't know where to take it around here that I trust anymore. any ideas, help would be greatly appreciated.  Repairman didn't want to give est. without looking at it.  Can't blame him, but don't want to get totally ripped off either.
    •   Actually, I have a case of 17 Beers left that I bought to the GTG last weekend still. Someone drank one! Since I'm not a big Beer guy I have been going over all the things I can make with beer. Beer Cheese soup, beard, fish batter, boil some wild rice venny brats in beer? Or just give it to one of my buddies?
    • Actually no one from either side, none, notta, zip.  
    • Large segments of the right and left are probably wishing they teamed up for Johnson right about now, they might not admit it but if they could go back and change their vote I wonder how many would. One thing is perfectly clear and that is neither Trump or Hillary was the answer. However they more than likely speed up the process of dumping the two party system so it's all good.
    •   If there is no easy money to be made the bad guys will do something else, you won't eliminate them completely unless you legalize everything but maybe they move on to something else. Take away that money and you solve a lot of problems at once for a lot of people. Not much incentive for people to sell hooch these days and it is as simple as that.

      I don't think you realize how bad the war on drugs is, we are talking world wide impact here. Heck in Mexico alone how many people are the cartels killing, it is a blood bath down there. Remove the millions that they make and that motivation is gone. How many police had been killed in drug related incidents in the past 50 years? The overdose deaths and accidents are going to happen no matter what you do, there is no stopping those but maybe you can prevent them with better treatment programs. You also have a massive prison population with large numbers of them incarcerated for drug crimes, now I'm now about letting violent offenders free but the rest of them are worth a look on a case by case bassi. Then you look at all of the above and all how all of their families have been affected by it. If you want to start helping people you need to start by ending the war.
    • Wow! That's pretty low. You should be ashamed!
