I had a chance to look at Arrowwood Golf Course in Oceanside California.  Probably one of the best in the county. Beautiful lay out, looks to have a lot of hills and valleys, 72.5/136 from the tips, 68.5/125 whites. Good venue for a west coast tournament, open to the public.

Looks pretty good. If it's a couple to a few months from now, I'm in. . .

yes, thanks. It looks like it drops the "a" from the URL I quoted. It is truly a beautiful course from what I saw from the patio.

More than likely not until after January, or perhaps early Spring. @Shindig mentioned something about coming up with one. OTOH, there are several of us in the area and many are always ready for an impromptu outing, even two people. I would like to participate in a larger "flighted" event, but we will just wait and see.  I do plan to play Arrowood soon.

Arrowood has gotten some really good reviews recently on Greenskeeper.org.  $80/twosome at Costco online.

Played Saturday 10/8, Men's club monthly tourney. Course was in good shape. Tee boxes were OK, not many divots, fairly flat. Fairways were decent, closely mowed and had good run, decent lie, a few had thins spots here and there. Rough was about 3 inches, and playable.Bunkers were good sand in them. Greens were not punched yet, but had a few ball marks on everyone. I give it a 6. 4 hr POP Customer service was great from the friendly starter to the front desk. Greeted us like they wanted us there. If you play there look for an Elderly gentleman, one of the player assistants. We joked with the starter about another tourney ahead of us as to what to expect on POP. He pointed to the gentleman and said " Don't worry "the Hammer" will be out there moving things along, Don't piss him off?" lol.

Hope that helps.  It may be a little bit of a drive for me so I may have to pass on Arrowood.  Keep me in mind for future events though.

And you really need to know that :D

Okay, time has come.  Finally will be hitting Arrowood. Confirmed tee time for myself and daughter Monday 9:48.  This should be the "nicest" course I will have played this year. In any event, its all good, and looking to enjoy the day, and perhaps one of their "burgers and beers" (or more likely "Margarita Rocks").

okay, a little follow up.

We did in fact play Arrowood today. One of the better if not best tracks I have ever played. Hilly,undulating terrain, strategically placed fairway bunkers and pot bunkers,  one island green, last three holes are testers and over water

We played from the whites with a member. 5861 yds, 68.5/125. Nice putting areas and driving range. Full service facility with cart gals, marshalls, pre and end of round attendants.

Pricing is reasonable with special discounts for California residents, seniors, military, fire fighters, Palm Club. Membership plans avail from $500 initiation $200 month to $2,000 initiation and a little more monthly depending on if you need week day or anytime access.

Great views towards the Pacific Ocean.  The greens were in pristine condition, tricky, a couple would register a little high on the stimp meter.

Great location about midway between San Clemente and Escondido. I WILL  be back!

    • Had a nice time today golfing with my Granddaughter. We played 9 holes on "her home course" .  She was a bit down in the dumps because she didn't qualify for Monday's varsity tournament. We talked about her best golf days were still a head of her. Freshman envy I guess.  On the first tee she asked "so what are we playing for?" I told her a pitcher of beer, figuring I would destroy her mental prowess right off the bat. "You're on" was her reply. Now my mental game was taking a double take. I've been out of highschool for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure 13 year old, highschool fresh are not into beer yet. She told me she needed a stroke a hole, and that she would be playing from the women's tee, and that I would be playing from the tips.  Now I am really thinking. This time last month this young lady didn't know very much about golf. Yeah, a few long swing lessons with the course pro, and some short game stuff from me, some months ago. Trying to keep my competitive face on, I was.  Oh yeah, that she would be driving the cart......huh? Long story short she netted a 44, while grossing a 53. I think I was conned out of my own hdcp, but still won with a 41.  I was pleasently surprised at her game. I don't what youngsters her age shoot for good scores. I thought something in the 60s would have been decent. I asked her how she missed qualifying for Monday's tournament? She said she scored 51, and needed a 48.  As we were heading off the course, she told me I was going to have to wait on that pitcher of beer. For about 7.5 years. A little personal relief on my part. However, she was up for an ice cream, and soda. My treat.  What can I say. She now owns me.       
    • 86 (+15) on a 5000 yard course. My best here is 84. I really need to learn to control my emotions when I face slow players ahead of me. Today it came on hole 13. Waited for another single (walking as was I) to get out of range. Talked to him at the next tee box to see if he had called the rangers about a 4ball that wasnt letting singles play through. He had another single in front of them. Neither of them wanted to join up which didn't make sense. Had the first 12 holes done in 65 minutes, then it took 80-90 minutes fot the last 6 holes. I know that is normal pace, but it is more than twice as slow as I had been going. I'm glad I kept my head in the game enough to finish the round without killing my score
    • I have the Smart Sole S AND a Callaway 58 C-grind 8 bounce. Yes I know they're both 58. And yes I use both of them. The SS S for deep rough and soft sand, and the Callaway for hard pan, tight lies, and firm sand. All of which exist on the same course. I don't carry a FW so I have room in my bag.
    • In my last post I did mention that when I first took up the game, I "held onto" the club like grim death! There was nothing "natural" about the release for me, it was something I had to learn to do, something I had to try to do. It finally started to happen when golf really grabbed me hard, and I found myself in a situation where I could practice nearly every day. I was also reading instructional articles in Golf Digest back when it was actually a worthwhile read! This would be late 60's early 70's.  It happened when I became able to hit a ball with a right to left curve. I'm right handed. At first, I'd occasionally let it go too early and hit a quacker off the planet! But eventually, I was able to dial it back and wound up with a nice baby draw ball flight.  I think many confuse a "flip" with a release. A flip is a disaster. A proper release is a thing of joy! It's something that I'm actually re-learning this year.HI is down to 13.1 from 14.4 and I'm hitting the ball farther than I have in a while. 
    • Day 432 30 minutes with the putter, primarily working on hitting the ball squarely and through the putt.  Have too much of a habit of not continuing through. Greens were a bit difficult for me today, the course changed the locations of the holes on the practice green and I could not simply trust memory.
