Decided to go out yesterday afternoon as a solo walker. I expected to join a group but when I arrived there was no one on the first 3 holes so off I went solo. Eventually caught a guy and his girlfriend (not good and very slow) but they let me through at the turn.
I played brilliantly save for a few shots. The one fairway I missed was a stroke & distance penalty. Missed two birdie putts from inside 6 feet. The 16th & 17th holes have very sloped greens. While I was on both in regulation, 20 feet away, the result was 3-putt bogeys on each. Ultimately, I was very happy with my 78 despite the stumbles. My game has come a long way after being in the dumps for most all of 2021.
p.s. I should mention that I play a blended set of tees at this course to shorten the length to about 6,050 yards. This is no Oakland Hills.
