While visiting a cousin about 8-9 years ago I played The Den at Fox Creek. Nice course on the southwest side of town. A links type layout with alot of sand. Have fun! cheers

Thanks Dan !

I will do my best to have a blast. Shouldn't be difficult with all them corvettes to oogle. Some fine midwestern women too might get oogled. I will get to that golf course if I can. Thanks for the lead.

Well I just got back from Chicago and Bloomington's corvette event. It was great. I am surprised there isnt more bloging about this? More than 500 corvettes auctioned and thousands of cars there. My buddies 73 achieved survivor judging,Achieved Gold certification and was one of three to achieve benchmark status. This means it is the standard for all 73's to be measured for originality. More about that later. Good news for C5 owners is the price was way up on C5's. 97 coupe with miles on it and in good but not great condition brought more than 23k. Brand new C6ZO6 72.5.
Corvette heaven for me. You should check it out it is well worth the travel and the accomodations were top notch.
See you at Carlisle?

No golf as my buddy got hung up and didnt make until friday. I had to do all the work on the car and the corvettes were way cool. The event is held on a golf course so I was on the fairway all the time. Did pass a links course during the performance test though. Great event for those interested in corvettes.
