    I remember when they drained the front pond to do some maintenance on the bridge. It stayed dry for a while. Pretty soon after they filled it up, I saw a couple of black dudes out there fishing for about an hour.... I *Wonder* if they caught anything...

    Re: Tech golf course

    I actually liked playing out there. Had some good times when they still had someone there to take your money. It wasn't in great shape back then but it has gone really downhill since then. I still try to sneak out there to play once a year. I wish they had the money to fix it up. I really like the layout.

    For all of you guys saying you don't use drivers. not even on number 7?

    Re: Tech golf course

    Maybe we all could try and start up a mini-tourney out there on Saturday game days. Small fundraiser for the course.

    Anyone that's run a tourney before, would this be reasonable and workable??

    I don't know D. Early tee time before tailgatting shouldn't be a problem. I had some great times on that course.

    Re: Tech golf course

    That course brings back memories.......I took my girlfriend (now my wife) out to teach her the game. We started on number 4, the par 3 by the parking lot. She swung 4 times, missed the ball every time, then launched my Ping 5 iron...........I took her back to her apartment. That was in 1990 and have never taken her to a course since. I was proud of the throw though!!!!!

    Did you take her back home to show her how to properly hold a "wood"?

    I run the tournaments at Ruston Country Club. This is a good thought and idea but I don't think it would make enough difference success-wise. Several reasons why:

    1) They don't have nearly enough operable golf carts there to hold a touney.

    2) Even if you had 9-10 4-man teams you can't profit but possibly $1000-$1500 at the most.

    3) TRUST ME!!! That amount of money will not do ANYTHING for a golf course. The Tech course does have an allotted budget and maintenence is kept up by Tech staff. The course will never improve because it would cost tens of thousands of dollars to make those improvements. The course is also not a high priority for Tech. It loses money every year.

    4) Game-day!! I tried to have some last year for LTAC at RCC but it is hard to pull off. I may try a few things different this year like have one for the spring game.

    5) It is hard to start a golf tournament for the first time and have success unless it is for a memorial tournament (someone unfortunately passing away).


    It's sad but this course will probably not be under Tech much longer. They are not going to keep losing money every year with finances the way they are. There is even talk of selling it to Grambling.

    For the 10 BBB hard-core guys, but you know that for a 6p kickoff, tailgating doesn't get good until at least noon.

    For what it's worth, that was my first thought as well, but I just figured that we could get more guys to do this on a game day than just on any other Saturday. Didn't you and TECH77 and the guys always play 18 in Homer on gamedays??

    I can see the cart thing being a problem. Dang....

    On the money thing, for a course like that, that little amount maybe able to START helping out... if nothing else get things a little better to sell to Grambling for a higher price.

    I see. How about the Chris Long tourney out there??

    Maybe the living guys like Ryan Moats, Luke McCown, Barry Robertson (come on Kat :icon_wink would want to get something small started??

    Thanks PT. I appreciate your input.
