    Playing Talons of Tuscany

    Dennis Albaugh's golf course in an hour. Any advice? I'll see if he can fund SEZ...

    Re: Playing Talons of Tuscany

    Have fun. It's a really nice course and it gets very little play. Luckily I have an in. :D

    Seriously, it's put together well. You can play it in about 2 hours. lol

    My advice: invite one of your neighbors next time.

    Re: Playing Talons of Tuscany

    It was for Child Serve, which is an awesome organization and great tournament. Dennis donated his course today, so the $250/person all went to the foundation. What a great philanthropist. Awesome course, very unique. Eight par 3s, with a par 33 on the front and par 38 on the back. I took a picture from every hole. I would love to play it without all of the other golfers sometime, but I'll take what I can.

    Sorry AZEPP, McKesson flipped the bill for me today.

    Fun fact:

    No one has ever paid to play that course.

    Hey State Of Mind, I golfed in the Childserve event today as well. Didn't play too well, but still a fun course to play. I bought the Paul Rhoads autographed football in the silent auction.

    He is planning on tearing up a bunch of holes and redesigning them... because he can. Seriously, he is.

    Play it every year at the Gridiron Outing. Great course.

    They are working on it now. He bought the area that was the rest stop off the interstate and is making some holes longer.

    Re: Playing Talons of Tuscany

    I believe he is moving back the hole that has the tree in the middle of the fairway. Cutting the brush back and making it a par 5 if I remember correctly.
