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.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
