Guessing that baskets have been pulled at Toboggan by now.

I had a rare weekday off in late October and was considering making the trek. Just too much driving for one day though. Went to Peoria and got my a$$ kicked by Northwood Black instead.

I've wanted to play Toboggan for years now, but it really didn't make sense for me this time. 5 hour vs 9 hour round trip should have allowed for a lot more golf. My legs didn't get the memo though. Did a 9 hole warmup, 18 holes at Northwood Black (shorts, but still easily top 3 for hardest course I've played), and then limped through 10 at McNaughton before giving up. First time I can remember cutting a round short for a reason other than prior commitments, lightning, or complete darkness. Left knee was screaming at me and I was getting slower every hole.

Anyway back on topic: Really hoping the powers that be liked the results of having Toboggan open all of October. If so, I'll be sure to get a couple days off and make the trip next year.
