    18 is such an intimidating tee shot, especially from the back tee box. The last five holes are challenging because you should play a fade off the tee--something I absolutely cannot do.



    That new house on 14 is pimp. I'm just waiting for someone to shank one through one of their million windows. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />




    very nice house! I actually just about did that though. I hit a draw but it didn't actually draw yesterday so my tee shot went into a back yard...made par on my second ball for double though! and yes, those holes all call for a fade and I do not hit one.

    If I could only finish a round! Was 9 over on 17 and 18 combined for Sat and Sun in the Wellshire Club Championship and finished T4. If I could've knocked even just a few off of that I would've taken 2nd alone. The guy that won shot net 59 yesterday so no one was catching that. UGH! I let the possibility of being in contention get in my head and just botched the last two holes each day. I considered taking a 7 iron off the tee on 18 yesterday which I should've done bc I hit my tee shot into the hazard short and left AGAIN. Oh well though, learning experience I guess.


    did bissel win the club champ again

    Nope. Second year in a row for Adam Gorgiyan with 67-70 and Mitch Smith, my buddy, finished second with 68-71. Bissel was 4th I think.

    Anyone ever played Hiwan in Evergreen? I played today and as a 3 handicap shot 87 with 1 four putt and 6 three putts. By far the hardest (and sometimes unfair) greens I have ever played. Course tee to green was uninspired and I can't imagine why the members would want to play greens that hard. The pro told us they were running 13.5 on the stimp....

    I haven't played it but have heard a similar story. Our local high school coach who played briefly on tour said they're the toughest greens he's played. Says putts that look like they will break two feet left actually go two feet right. That type of thing. He's taken some of his better kids to tournaments there, one who played major D1, he said it just destroyed her.

    Shot a smooth 76 (38-38) with three birdies at Indian Peaks today. I simply play well there; probably even left two strokes out there (one duffed chipped and one fairway bunker shot that nipped the lip). My driver was better, but still needs work. Also had trouble dialing in my LW from 60-80yds out. Also won my quarterfinal match play 4&3.



    Playing GVR on Saturday, and my semi-final match play.



    My index dropped a full point after the last revision. I'm sure it'll go down even further on Tuesday. Yikes.

    Ya, it was a joke. I consider myself a pretty good putter and from ANYWHERE dead below the hole you were putting defensively. Even 3 footers had break. I found this quote from Phil Mickelson on the club's website:



    Phil Mickelson, when asked about the fast greens at the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky, noted that he had only experienced faster greens at two other courses: Augusta National and Hiwan. Steve Jones, too, when interviewed on ESPN, paid homage to his Colorado Open experiences saying that his biggest challenge with greens was at Hiwan Golf Club in Evergreen, Colorado.

    Heehee. It actually went up 0.1 pts. My 74 from Indian Peaks two years ago finally dropped off, and it was replaced with the 76. Yes, I think it shows how much I play golf.



    Good luck to everyone playing this weekend--unless you're my match play opponent.

    While I can shoot lights-out at Indian Peaks, it's a totally different story at GVR. Ugh. I broke 90 for the first time there, so I got that going for me.



    I was 3-over after 8 holes; then I went bogey-double-bogey-quadruple-triple. The only saving grace was that I did manage to get myself to 3-up in match play after 9. After the wheels came off, we were all square going into 15. He missed a short par putt on 15 to give me the hole. I par 16, he doubles. On 17 (par 3), I chunk my tee shot, and he puts it 2 feet away. I take an open LW and put it a foot away; and he misses his birdie putt. Somehow I squeak out a 2&1 victory (and a guaranteed spot at Cherry Creek CC in October for the ToC). On 18, I put my tee shot in the sand, PW out, 4-iron to short of the green, pull my LW chip, then I sink a 15-footer for my free beer. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    On Sunday, season-ending tournament at Riverdale as well as my match play championship match.

    Okay, CO golf courses, I know we haven't had rain in weeks, but it was a very wet spring and summer; there is no need to water the fairways to the point of saturation. There's nothing like bombing a drive down the middle, only seeing it 250yds from the tee next to a massive, fat pitch mark.



    Another question for you all: how often are you paired with people toking up on the golf course now? Since it was legalized, I've only see it twice. Dude yesterday shot a 74 at Riverdale. His recovery shots and putting were incredible. I, on the other hand, crap the bed and shoot a 93 with 41 putts. Ouch.



    Match play championship will actually be held at Cherry Creek CC on Saturday. It's a pretty sweet trophy that you get to keep for a year. Next Monday is my company golf outing at Inverness, then I'm going to take a few weeks off.

    At the Raven, hole 9, killed the drive off the elevated tee, ball actually backed up about 10 feet! Hit 6 iron on instead of the wedge I wanted. I've never seen anyone toking on the course, doubt that it is legal to do so. Just checked, it is not legal.

    Match play champion. Boom. My game continues to struggle, I was giving NINE strokes, but I still eeked out a 3&1 victory. Cherry Creek CC is a pretty swanky place. The course itself was split between fairly easy (tee to fairway)--as long as you kept it out of the waste areas--to diabolical on and around the greens. Eight of the pin placements were within 4-6 paces from the edge of the green, and often teetering on either false fronts or on ridges leading to green-side collection areas.

    Anyone play Meridian?



    I was thinking of trying to play tomorrow afternoon since I live close and would like to check it out. It sounds like the public can book times tues-fri with a limit of once per month but the wording on the website is a bit confusing. Anyone know their policy or ballpark what they charge the public to play?

    I had no idea about that policy. Many years ago when I was a range member there, you got one free weekday (M-Th) round per year. I believe the value of the round (including cart) was $100.



    Too bad I'm working from home today. Otherwise, I'd heckle you from my work's balcony while you're on the back 9. image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    Let me know if 4-5 of the greens are still dead. I played earlier in the season and the greens needed a huge amount of TLC - I would be interested in the current conditions.

    Colorado National has had a lot of issues since Troon sold it. It has or was for sale for quite sometime. Not sure if it sold or could be sold as the owner had a run in with the IRS. Anyway, the course has suffered during that time. I remember when that course first opened, I made sure I played there at least 3 times a year. 7600+ yards with firm and fast greens. That course with fast greens might be the toughest test in the state.

    Greens weren't perfect but definitely weren't dead. They charged $38 for the round which is a steal for that place. I'd play there a lot more if I lived on that side of the metro.

    I'm heading to Florida, but only enough time for a Disney cruise. Had plans of staying over Christmas and New Year's in the Ft. Myers area, but condo rental rates and airfares were insane.

    If anyone here takes advantage of the city of Aurora's premiere card program, just read they are doing away with the biggest saving deal (pay $1000 for a $1300 dollar gift card) next February. If you play Aurora muni's frequently, you may want to pick up one or two before then.

    If you are looking for an indoor sport to do in the off-season, I'd like to invite you to try out floorball. We play at Parker Fieldhouse on Monday nights through the rest of the year; and we'll move to either Tuesday or Wednesday nights starting in January.



    If you've ever played hockey or lacrosse, then this sport will be easy to pick up.



    Visit our website: http://www.denverfloorball.com



    If you have any other questions, feel free to shoot me a PM.
