played a little executive course in sylmar this afternoon, el Cariso. have played there many times over the years as it's a good place to work on your game. shot 43-40 for an 83 on a course with zero par 5s. hit my irons well, but putting was pretty bad.Three pars on the back 9. I used my burner bubble driver on a course for the first time and was very pleased with the results.
was paired with three old retirees. the oldest guy was 90 and he played like he was at least 20 years younger than that. typical old guy - hit it straight and right down the middle most of the time. he'd probably get chewed up on a regular sized course, but this was a good place for him. he had several pars and one birdie. he putted like an SOB, too.
on the way home I checked out Angeles National Golf Club in Sunland. It's $100 to play but it's one of those very fancy courses you'd find at a resort, plus it's a Jack Nicklaus design. Fortunately they have a senior rate of $65 any day any time. Will have to take them up on that some time. Looks like a nice place.
