Congratulations.  Nice thing about golf is there are no style points, just results.  As the years go by, feel free to embellish upon the accomplishment!  ;-)

Thanks!

I didn't realize there were awards for that kind of stuff.

I went to the thread, do I just send a message to iacas?

Call it a hole in one.  That sounds better than an eagle, at least to me.

@70sSanO, Does "SanO" mean San Onofre?  If so I spent time there in the 60's and early 70's when it was a surf club.  First wave I ever stood up on was there, I was 7.

It sure does, but I was not fortunate to surf there (no club member with access) before Nixon granted public access and Reagan made it a California State Beach.  I know the club hated that.  I learned to surf at Bolsa Chica (Tin Can Beach) on a 9'6" longboard, but SanO was my favorite spot.  When short boards took over the 70's I would often scramble down trails and have the place all to myself... literally.

Then in the 2000's our sons and I would hit the surf beach (Old Man's) at least a couple times a week.  Was part of the non-list club for a number of years.  Kids surfed in the club contests and usually did fairly well.

SanO is a real soft spot for me and I plan to get down there during the week and catch a few waves when I retire.  Not quite ready for fighting the weekend crowds.  Old guys really don't rule in a SoCal lineup, even at Old Man's.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day.
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
