I played from Virginia up to Maine in August, it was hot but the bugs weren't awful. We had some mosquitoes but not many flies.

When I'm in the north east, I'm swimming. Prefer July/August just to be assured of nice swimming weather.

Getting in the car after work today (10/4) and driving on up.

Have plans to play in DE, NJ, NY, CT, RI, MA, ME, VT, NH and PA (10 new states). Got to play at least 1 course in each state... but will try to squeeze in more in time permits. (I have to entertain the girlfriend too).

I know I will be @:
- Iron Hill in Newark, DE on Fri mid-morning (10/5)
- Cranbury Park in Norwalk, CT on Monday morning (10/7)
- Maple Hill in Leicester, MA on Tuesday morning
- Portland Maine and Sabattus DGC sometime Wednesday/Thursday
- Tyler State Park in Newton, PA sometime Saturday/Sunday

Hopefully I have time for it all!
PM me if you're in the region of any of those courses.

Perfect timing. While not peak season here, its close; its gonna be a beautiful drive. You'll easily the thange in season from Ashville to ME.

Dress for every kind of weather. Its snowing in the upper midwest and it'll move east. Might not snow where you're at but the further you leave the coast and the higher elevations you reach you can expect cold and wet.

Not sure if you're travel plans will permit this, but if you can squeeze it in the Kancamagus Highway between ME & NH, it is considered one of the most scenic highways in the nation at this time of year.

Thanks for the tip simpletwist!
I do believe that I was randomly going across that road from Sabattus to the NH/VT courses as it was... but now I'll be sure of it...

YW. Hey if you come a bit west on your way back home there are some fine courses in and around Rochester, Buffalo, and Pittsburg too. Hit me up if you want a guide for the western NY area. Speaking of which this is a great time of year for a drive along Lake Ontario or the Finger Lakes wine region.

DSCJNKY,

I just got back from 2 weeks up there. Good timing. It should be prefect. I reviewed a few courses in the VT, MA and NY area if you want my humble opinion on their current status. If you are hitting Maple Hill, try to get to Devens too. I think it is about 45 mins to an hour away. Hilly technical course with ups and downs. Very cool. Mini Sugaree in a way.

Yes there are some good courses in Western NY. Definitely worth a side trip if you can swing a few Rochester and Buffalo days. If you play Emory let me know your thoughts. I've played it twice, and still am not sure what I think of it.

Love it or hate it, Emery is worth the trip.

Yeah, it's good. I just have thought both times it could be better. But I guess that where the opinions are like a-holes phrase comes from.
