My bro might actually join me.  We will see.  If it works out it would be a lot of fun to play it.

I will probably end up taking an insurance agent we work with out there.

Tee time is made, I think I might vlog the full shots as well.

Pretty excited about playing tomorrow.  Temp should be in the high 40s.   I am going to try out the new grenade driver as well.  Since I don't have any real friends, I am taking an insurance agent we work with.  All someone had to do was speak up and their round was paid for.  Too late! ;-)

Not well.  I have not played in almost a month.  I shot about 90, did not really keep score.  I was trying out a new driver as well which actually did not cost me too many strokes, but I just had some bad bounces and made some mistakes in playing the course for the first time.  Had a few low point issues, but not bad considering the time off of playing.  Had a bunch of pitch shots spin a bit too much off the closely mowed areas around the green.  I was not used to that, and a bunch of short shots would stop when I thought the would roll out.  I could have putted much better had I used aimpoint, but I am not great at it yet and did not want to slow things down.  It is my favorite course I have played thus far.  It is just awesome, I love the waste areas and the design.  Gotta get the kids to bed but if you have more questions, please ask.

 

Here is the walk from the tee to the green on Blind Man's Bluff.  Some may not know but it is a par 3 with a blind tee shot.

At 40 degrees when we started, we did not have the heart to play from 7200. We decided on the blues at 6750 which was all I could handle in the wind and the cold. I did destroy a couple balls about 250 though. :P
