Dam this is a bad week for me. I’ll be Newport for a work conference Tuesday, Wednesday then I’ll be in Del Mar Thursday for the horse races. I’ll definitely drag him out when we golf, he’s still got it!

Shot an 81 at Black Gold on Friday morning. Front 9 was great. Back 9 I didn’t have it… 3 lost balls and found water in the 18th. My index is now at 7.5. Not bad for playing < 8 times per year.

That’s a great score on a tight course. Very few easy drives.

Very impressive. I was in the men’s club at Black Gold for years and I was happy if I broke 90. 😂

Damn, that's impressive. I shot a 94 at Black Gold a few week back and was stoked. Lost a few balls but overall played well. Finding a flat lie there is nearly impossible.

I've been stuck in the low 90's the past few weeks. Been working on my short game which has helped the big number holes but still have work to do.

We should play! I blew thru the fairway on a couple of drives and lost 3 balls. Oh well, I don’t play smart golf. My short game saved me on Friday. I chipped quite a few within 1-putt distance. The round could have easily gotten away.

Played yesterday at Westbrook lakes course started out pretty good for me just bogey the first 5 holes then 6-14 went to shit. But was a nice course and a challenge with some doglegs and couple lakes. Only lost one ball well almost 2 one was barely in water.

For sure, I will ping you next time I'm setting up a round and we will get something on the books.

Eagle Bend in Big Fork Montana. It’s amazing out here.
Don't have any pics but we were in Polson, MT (the Motorcoach Resort) for a few days last Month. The Polson Golf Course was in great shape. Great views of Flathead.

Nice! My buddy Chris that we played with was there last weekend. Said it was a great course. It's on my short list.

It's amazing! Not as technical as Trump but it's still a great course.

We gotta play again!

Played a decent round at Black Gold in Yorba Linda…. It was a Match play game for the presidents cup in our golf association. I won the match. Play the next guy for the Championship… sometime in mid September. Might be playing Strawberry Farms in Irvine.

Anyone play there recently? I have not played there in years.

Ok I’ll give a picture of the 18th green but I’d guess not many if any members have played here.

Looks like a relativly easy final green to hit, even if you miss your likely to roll onto the green from most sides!
Most of the front of the green is a false front so likely rolling down the hill it’s also extremely narrow coming up the fairway.

That green looks brutal. Below the hole or you’re dead.
The first hole looks a little like riviera. But 18 looks too small.

i took my 13 year old son for his first "big boy" round today (18 holes). We usually go to a small par 3 course but today i took him to a place named Valley Oaks in Visalia ca. His first full round. He got tired and ended up playing off of my tee shots in the end, but theres something to taking your boy out on the linx. Its a sport we can play well into our old age and no matter how bad I shoot, I still have fun. I shot a 94, which I was happy with.
