Hey RF, come on over!
Recap of this weekend's golf trip to Pinehurst:
Friday: Played at Hyland Golf Club
in Pinehurst. Ok course--not on par with the other courses in the area, but a nice course to get our weekend started. Played our own ball there--shot 101. Weather was perfect--80 degrees and sunny. Went over to #2 and had drinks at the clubhouse. There's a new pub there called The Deuce. They had this barrel aged cherry vanilla bourbon they make on site. Fantastic manhattan drink they offer. One of the guys bought a round for the group (12 of us). BSD.
Saturday: Played at Pine Needles
. Course is in good shape for mid-winter. Fairways aren't filled in yet but the greens are in spectacular shape. Donald Ross design so if you're not near the pin everything runs off. Resorted to putting from off the green because the lies around the greens were so tight. My buddy and I shot 88 (2 man scramble) and finished in last place of our 6 groups. Winning team shot 77. Couldn't chip for shit and driver fell apart. We went back to #2 for another one of those drinks. Tasty. Weather was great--upper 70s but kinda windy.
Sunday: Played at Tobacco Road
. LOVE this course. Foursome I was in decided to do 2 man scramble again. We shot an 83. We had a birdie on the front and another on the back--the one on the back was on my own. Hit my tee shot to 4 feet and made the putt. First birdie I've had in my 10 or so rounds at that course. Lot of blind shots there so you have to know your distances pretty well. Weather was still pretty good--low 60s.
