Darn. Today at Pebble Beach, it rained for more than 1/2 of round, and was very windy throughout. I played from white tee but wind made it much longer.
Decided to go with caddy service for myself. I am not sure if it was absolutely needed other than 1 or 2 holes (blind shots that can get you into trouble).
Greens were aerated and played very slow, It probably cost me a few strokes. One thing about the greens, they were consistently small. I had 0 GIRs.
The view ... absolutely gorgeous even without sun. The view alone made the trip (and $$$) worthwhile.
The course design was superb with every hole having its own unique character.
Service was awesome.
Considering steady & cold rain, strong wind, aeration, no warm up (arrive too late), I did OK (only 2 points over my handicap).
If you are in the neighborhood and can afford it, play it. It's worth it.
It's not really about the score, but rather the experience!
