I would really like to go back to Industry Hills. This time play the Ike. 

I'm up for that. That's the favored course so we might need to reserve well ahead of time.

@Lihu Vineyard is a good choice, one of the best values in San Diego, imo.

Good to hear! Thanks!

Hey, I'm planning to book a tee time for next Wednesday at 6:07 and for me it's only $22.50 with cart and a beverage. @Hacker James and @Bechambo ? Any other takers? Should I reserve more people?

I have a soft spot for that course - I used to live closer and it was central between myself and my one golf buddy so we played it often.  I can't make next Wednesday but thanks for the invite ... take some photos and post them please!  I'm curious how it looks now.  I only see the parking lot and the driving range once every couple of months as we pass by on our way to the Safari Park. :)

Nice!  Course looks to be in pretty decent shape too. :)

Yeah, I think the desalinization plant helps keep things in shape. It rained up in the Pasadena area the evening before, but it doesn't look like it did down there.

I will say that the greens were huge. I hit on or really near a lot of them as well because how could you possibly miss them by that much? :-D

My putting although new and improved was no match for the course though. . .

The just sanded the greens and they were still running really fast. I'd hate to see what they're like at their peak conditions? Wow hard putting even though my stats show that I putt pretty well it sure didn't feel like it. :-P

    • That is a great golf course.  Played it, along with its sister course, true blue this past summer.
    • Shot 79, 14 GIR/nGIR, 26 putts, 2 penalty strokes. Both penalty strokes came on the back 9, and were just bad swings. In both cases, I stood over the ball too long, and should have backed off and reset, instead of making an uncomfortable swing. Didn't have my A game with full swing today, but except for the two penalty strokes from hitting into red-staked penalty area, I was keeping the ball in play, and advancing the ball decently. Short game was pretty good except one hole where it took 3 pitches to get on the green. The first two were out of awful lies, so I have a little pre-baked excuse for that one at least. Putting was really solid today, especially considering the greens were aerated, sanded, and unmown. Strokes gained vs. 5 HCP: Tee: -2.05 Approach: -2.80 Short Game: -1.64 Putting: +1.03
    • Day 50: Played 18 this morning. Overnight rain made the course a little sloppy. Fairways were wet and hadn't been mowed, and greens were punched, sanded, and also unmowed. Didn't have my best swing, but made it work for the round, and scored pretty well.
    • Yup, this was the move. I was striping the ball today. Hit 8/14 fairways at Neshanic, which isn't easy. Unfortunately I didn't score well, because my short game decided not to show up to the course for the first 12 holes and I kept lipping out 5-10 footers. Thinned/chunked a handful of shots inside 100. Ended up with 7 GIR, should have been 10. Did almost drive a 315 yard par 4, though. Made two birdies and missed two 8' birdie putts - one on a 200 yard par 3. It was an interesting day.
    • That really seems to be a rational approach to this. We aren’t going back to the old school names; (I don’t think…) ? And iron numbers have been rendered meaningless. So you approach creating a club set by saying,” well, I need a driver, a fairway club around 18 degrees, and a …..”   I think this says it pretty well!
