Baltusrol

3 posts in this topic

Yesterday I was treated by a member to play the Lower Course at Baltusrol. I must say, that course is beautiful. The whole experience was incredible. We got there at about 10am for a 1:15pm tee time, allowing for me to walk through the locker room and see who the members were, look at memorabilia from when Jack won twice, Phil won in '05 and all the old pictures from how it used to look. Playing the course was tough, hitting just 2 fairways and 4 greens. I played off the blue tees (7,000+ yards) and had a great caddie named Abdul. After playing 3 holes, he knew relatively what I was hitting and suggested from there on out. I putted quite well considering the greens were really fast, but true (31 putts). I felt like I had to share, don't know who all has played there but figured I'd post, hoping to hear any stories you guys out there might have. Btw, I shot an 87 and loved every minute of it.

Nice shooting with the 87! Back in high school we played Baltusrol once a season against Springfield High..it was their home course. Talk about winning the home course lottery. I'll never forget my senior year match against them. We played the Lower Course which starts with a manageable Par 5. Our foursome tee'd off first. With my entire team, Springfield's team, and various club members and reps watching, I proceeded to shank my drive dead left....50 yards, into Baltursrol rough on a rainy day. I was mortified, and caught my coach giving me this deer in headlight look like what was THAT?! Needless to say, I couldnt get off that teebox fast enough!! Funny thing was I ended up parring the hole. Anyway, thats my Baltusrol moment

My memory has faded since then, but I remember the course beating up on all of us pretty good each time we had the privilege.
I would jump at the chance to play there again... just an incredible course and facilities.

In high school my team played Norton High once a year, who's home course was TPC Boston.
