The Trifecta–Today at Spyglass Hill

Today we played Spyglass Hill, the third course for our adventure and another course used in the Pro-Am tournament each year.  This course is way different in that there are lots of trees and only some holes have the water view.  The fairways are narrower but the greens are just as fast and still quite small.  They actually slow the greens down for the Pro-Am otherwise the amateurs would have too much trouble with them.  But for us regular folks, they make them harder!

That said, Phil Barricklow, one of my friends who joined me for this adventure, was really in a groove today and shot a 78!  He was really making some fantastic shots!  Maybe we should sponsor him in the Pro-Am next year!

I took a picture of each hole to give you some idea of just how beautiful this course is.  Each course we played has its own characteristics that make it different from the others.  Yet they are all fantastic venues and an experience the four of us will treasure.  I’ll put the pictures below with no descriptions.  (remember, you can double click them to enlarge them).

On several holes, there were deer on the course.  You can see a deer in one of the pictures below.  Several holes before that, I  hit a shot just by the flag on a hole with a small green and if you miss it long, you are over the cliff and into the water.  That was probably my best shot of the day.

I didn’t play all that well again but did I ever enjoy the course!  It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I was doubly blessed to enjoy it with such great friends!!!

You couldn't convince the deer to "accidentally" kick your golf ball into the hole for you? Too bad! What a way to end your golf "spree"...beautiful weather and fantastic courses, all there for your enjoyment! Glad you could do that.

why is it that golf courses always have the best views?..especially when the golfers are only worried about getting that little white ball into the hole?
