Let us know about Oak Quarry....heard good things about that track.
103 @ Robinson Ranch in Canyon Country. OMG windy as possible. driving into the wind was funny, the ball went up and just dropped out of the sky like it was shot down.
Not a bad score for not playing in over a year and the wind conditions of 40MPH winds.
But I did get to use my new Cleveland 420 launcher-like she said-OMG, that's a big head.
I don't know.
Three-under Bogey Man just doesn't have a very good ring to it.
I've played Oak Quarry a while backLet us know about Oak Quarry....heard good things about that track.
Very nice course.
Lot's of OB and with cliffs on some holes.
The OBs got me a few times but I was still rather a green golfer at that time.
The scenery is very nice with of the par 3 14th being the signature hole shooting toward "The Rock".
I yearn to play at Oak Quarry again.
Got an extra tee time there NoOne?

You're right, 3 Under Bogey Man doesn't have a nice ring to it. As far as an extra slot, nope. At least not yet..Originally Posted by 3 Under Bogey Man
As far as today, let's just say it was one of those days which I am going to forget QUICK. Played decent for a while, then ALL of the wheels came off. Couldn't drive, couldn't hit the irons, couldn't hit the wedges, and couldn't putt. It wasn't like Tijeras Creek was playing tough today at all. Oh well, such is golf.
Oh well. There is always tomorrow.
Oak Quarry -
Excellent track. A definite shot makers course. I love the layout of the course.
However, the greens were fast. In fact, fast may be an understatement. Walk outside and start putting on your driveway, it was that fast. Some of the fastest greens I putted on. BUT, when I was able to hit approaches, the ball did check and stop nicely.
The fairways were accessible with good drives, and unforgiving if you missed your mark. I was able to find some flat lies out there.
The course is heavily bunkered, and lots of environmental hazards. The bunkers were hard and wet, but there was frost out there this morning, so I think in the spring/summer the bunkers may be better.
The course was in excellent shape. Green fairways, nice greens, etc. Visually very intimidating, but VERY fair. Bad shots are punished, as well they should.
Knowledge of the course (especially the greens) is key!
Weekend Cost - $95. Worth it, plus the drive in my 99 V8 Dakota. I will play this track again.
As for my round, 96. Ugh. I did miss a 5 or 6 putts but about a TOTAL of 8 inches. On 17, a short, uphill par 4, I was just off the green in 2 but on a mound just to the right of the green. I putted down the slope, and the ball went across the green into a LARGE collection area well below the green. So, on 17, do not end up just to the right of the green (but don't short side yourself either!!!). I put much better swings on the ball today.
87 (adj. 86) at Arroyo Trabuco
PGA West (Jack Nicholson) course scored a womping 144...First ever time golfing...Thank god for the free golfing pass and free clubs...
Shot a 93 at Los Amigos in Downey yesterday. Teed off at 6:45 am in the fog and cold. good thing good ol' Jack Daniels was in the group.
Played 36 on Tuesday. 18 in the morning at Rec Park with my brand new Vokey 60* (replacing a 10 year old Faldo wedge!). Started birdie-birdie and was feeling good! Unfortunately, ended up with an 78. Hopped over to Skylinks at 1:30 and got another 18 in, this time carding a 72, including back-to-back eagles on Holes 10 and 11.
We we having a LGK outing?!?!?
