90 at River View. Pretty good for me. Irons and putting were solid. Flubbed some chips and badly sliced some drives or it would have been in the 80's.

Well, not about a golf game, but I was at a local 9 hole course last week.
They were blowing their items out and I picked up a '05 Callaway Cart Bag, typically priced around $150 at this time, for 10 friggin' bucks.
What a deal!

Anyone play Trump National yet? I'm playing next Thursday...

89 from the Blues at Hidden Valley. Talk about a course where you need to hit the fairways... Good god.
Thankfully, my driver was ON today. 11 of 14 fairways hit, and only one really bad drive.
Now if I could just score..

Man, what a beautiful day. I don't care what Al Gore says, I love global warming. Wore shorts and it was about 80 degrees in December! And on a golf course to boot! Can't ask for much more.
73 today at Recreation Park...limped in with double-birdie-bogey. Man, bogies on the last hole can really leave a bad taste in your mouth.

How long did it take you to play Big Rec? I was at Lakewood on Friday (and thankfully didn't finish), and some guy in our group got a call at 4:30 PM from his friend who played El Dorado, and the friend teed off at El Dorado at 9:30, and finished at 4:30. Yep, SEVEN hours for a round...

... It does look like El Toro Golf Course is closing down on 12/31. Signs have been posted. :( One less course for those guys who play El Toro. I wonder where they are going to go? :(

Ouch, that's brutal (although highly unlikely.) We played in only a few minutes over 4 hours at Rec yesterday.

93 at Arroyo Trabuco, after a HORRIBLE front 9 (51).
Teed off at 8, finished about 12. A nice 4 hour round to start the day. I owe the Rain Gods a GREAT deal, since MANY people flaked on their tee times. I have a 8:18 Tee time, but was moved up to 7:51 due to the lack of people there.
I must say, a little bit of drizzle on the 4th or 5th hole, and that was IT for the rain, but those damn winds in that canyon made that course a bitch today...

93 at El Prado. Grass sucked. Was excited to fly home to the ever so-green courses here in Scottsdale.
