The Old Course. #500.   ![](https://dl.dropbox.com/s/54saiaga0udi4qv/20190424_124620.jpg "")

Been scoring in the low 70s for some time, but I had never broke 70 before. Today was the day that I finally did at Klein Creek. My putter had been hot for some time and it came through for me to get

I played the Preserve at noon on the 4th. The course is in great shape. I played really well on the front, 37. Then lost three balls on the back to shoot 46, ouch. They have to add some water coolers

The par 3 17th at The Castle Course.

Thanks, everyone. Yeah, great time, including the Scottish weather. Playing in Chicago in the early spring and late fall is definitely good preparation.

... I remember the first time I saw Tin Cup. Absolutely hated it. Nothing like a real US Open and that's what the previews had me thinking it was all about. 2nd time I saw it, I knew it had little to do with competition golf, basically a buddy movie and a love story with golf as a back drop. Now it is one of my favorite films. I preface this post with Tin Cup as I seem to have done the same thing with AK Chin Southern Dunes. The first time I played there the traps had lining sticking out and absolutely no sand in them. It was windy and I had just gotten to Phoenix after a long winter with a suspect swing and those abysmal bunkers were everywhere. But the worst thing was they told me it was a very walkable course so I used my remote cart and there was so much thick sand just off the tee boxes and the cart was bogged down every tee box. With so much sand around the tee box and none in the bunkers it really pi$$ed me off. I had to get the guys with me to help me carry it a couple times.

 

... I played again today and knew to take a cart and what to expect. Greens were medium paced and rolled very true. Tee boxes and fairways were in excellent condition for being in a desert. And best of all, they replaced the sand in all the bunkers about 6 months ago. Instead of 65* and windy, it was 103* and dead calm with a gentle breeze popping up every now and then. I absolutely loved the course! One of my favorite Phoenix courses and a must play if you visit. Starter told us to avoid any areas off the fairway as the Rattlers have had babies and there were hundreds of them around the course. I didn't see any but as you can see from the picture of the bunker, one had been thru just before we arrived. Heading back to Chicago next week and so glad I gave Southern Dunes a second chance.

Hard to follow a couple of courses posted recently, but I got in a round at Balmoral Woods today. $32 on GolfNow. The course was in good shape: tee boxes filling in, fairways in good condition, and the greens were rolled and starting to approach mid-season speed. I like the quirky par 38/34 contrast of reachable and longer holes, as well as several that change direction and/or elevation. Only complaints were (1) it seemed that the bunkers hadn’t been groomed today (pretty crusty), and (2) a couple of the back tee boxes were closed, forcing us to play from the forward tees. At least we got around in about 3:30.

 

Overall, a good value as long as you’re willing to make the drive. Along with GDN, I think it’s one of the better options down that way.

Congrats! Hope you are enjoying St. Andrews as much as I did. Dying to get back soon. Let me know what you think of the other courses there. I played the New, Jubilee and Eden and thought they were great fun, too.

 

By the way, your Swilcan Bridge pic: are you trying to emulate Jack's final wave goodbye pose from his last round at the Old Course? (I did! lol). I put the wrong foot up just like you show!

Lol. No, wasn't thinking about Jack. I was thinking about my stupid hat blowing off in the stiff breeze, and me falling over the edge as I try to catch it.

Bear and I were the only ones on the course at Balmoral Woods this morning and we just barely beat the storm. We teed off at 6:10 and were done by 8:50. By the 17th green the freezing rain had started and by the 18th it was coming down pretty hard. Our accelerated walking pace felt justified, though scoring was much more difficult that way. I managed a 40 on the front and parred 18 for a 77. No birdies but we were both just happy to get out at least once this weekend. Conditions were fine and $32 on a weekend is a decent price for that course. The greens were slow but smooth.
