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.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
