post #217 of 355

I was fortunate to be invited to play Isleworth CC yesterday.  One of two courses they play the Tavistock Cup at and home to a bunch of Tour Pros including Annika Sorenstam, Bubba Watson, and formerly Tiger....an amazing place.

 

 

Number 2.  Playing 193 and yes, the tee shot IS as tight as it looks.

 

1000

 

 

Number 7.  Uphill par 4 playing about 435.  About 235 to carry that 3d bunker, probably 275 to carry the 4th.

 

1000

 

 

Waaaaay outa my league.  And no, that is NOT the clubhouse.

 

 

Just for colin007.......yep, it's Tiger's fire hydrant.  c2_beer.gif

 

Bubba lives here now.

Price we pay for being in a flood plane:

 

Scraping silt out of the bunkers

 

 

More silt

 

 

Removing silt

 

 

final cleaup of sand

 

 

After the flood

 

 

And that is just one bunker. There are probably about a dozen or so that need this treatment.

Sure. But it's a par five, though one you can often reach with a 3I give or take.

I took this picture of the Par 3 #5 hole at Shoal Creek, site of two PGA Championships, in Birmingham, Alabama while volunteering at this year's Regions Tradition Champions Tour tournament.  As a volunteer, I get to play the private course in November and am looking forward to trying out this Jack Nicklaus design.

View from the 7th tee at The Ranch Country Club. 530 yd par 5 with a somewhat intimidating tee shot over water, dog leg right. The green is over the hill. The green to the left is a practice area with about 120 yds of fairway and a couple of bunker. It was once the 7th green before the remodel. The course was beautiful yesterday sad to think fall is just around the corner. This time next month leaves will be ready to drop.

Seems like that practice area could be a dangerous place being so close to the fairway of a hole.

It's not, the depth is deceiving. Can't get close from the tee and the 2nd shot plays away from it to the right, even a big hook 2nd shot really only gets into those trees on the left and the practice green is some 70-80 yards behind them. The hole before the remodel was a long par 4 dog leg left. The trees on the left are more than 300 out uphill. I have hit the house on the left. Thankfully they have nets protecting it.

Dubbed one of the hardest par 3's in the UK...

174 from the tips, narrow shot to a semi island green with water front right and a small lake surrounding behind and to the left of the green and water in front of you.

FINALLY, the range is open for play again. I was tired of the mats.

Visited Superior National on the North shore of Lake Superior.  Course condition was OK.  Views were fantastic!

That may be the nicest looking range I've ever seen on a non-tour course.

Trump National in Los Angeles, pictures really did not do justice to how great the view was or the two water falls.

It was laser-leveled and completely regrassed and re-opened today. We've been hitting off mats for the last 6 weeks. I am heading over right now.
