Had a great round today and broke 90 for the first time, with an 89. That one and a half footer on 18 was intense. No 7’s or 8’s on the scorecard, just steady golf 

Made the drive up to Arcadia Bluffs from Benton Harbor. Once I got my clubs out of my car and saw the clubhouse, it was like the first time I went to Disney World as a kid and you are in awe of the pl

a great three season course. such different looks in spring and fall when the tall grasses aren't in full height.

number five is one of my all time favs with the trees framing the green.

number 5 green site is a beauty

 

They are taking down a few trees and taking out the brush in the area between 7th and 8 green and 12th fairway.

Should be nice in the summer.

 

I wonder if they are doing what other parts of lake county forest preserves are doing?

Clearing out buckthorn and less desirable trees to give the oaks a chance to survive/flourish.

We're very blessed to have bonus golf but please remember to be socially distant and wear masks. Played today at a location where the bar was open and everyone who was in there totalling 10+ people who refused to wear a mask. Golf itself is safe, stupidity isn't.

 

... I wish I could say I am shocked, but of course I am not.

So stupid. I played Mistwood yesterday and was pretty happy to not be paired up. It was obviously slow as a single, but I just played multiple balls and chipped and putted on every hole. That being said, everyone I did see had masks on and they had plenty of signs posted that you must have one to enter. I know Argonne has brought it up in the past, but there is no reason at all that we should even have to enter the pro shop, it is 2020, everything should be online.
