AW's golf scores

761 posts in this topic

The only regular round I play is my Tuesday Rec-Park 9.  Shot an amazing -1 last year, but usually shooting in the +5-10 range (+4 this week).

 

We used to play DLB or Casta Del Sol weekly, and I scored my first ever birdies at DLB (+2 on the front; always implode on the back for a 78-80 something).  We used to play Costa Mesa a lot too when I first started playing.

 

I thought Shorecliffs was too tight also.  Played it twice, probly won't be back.  We preferred San Juan Hills.  I haven't played Skylinks since they re-furbished it, and I still haven't played Eldorado Park either.

 

I'm a decent player, but I'd usually rather have fun and drink some beers/smoke cigars than get all frustrated and angry.  My ex-wife had one good piece of advice when we were married.... "You can go play golf, just don't come home in a bad mood from a crappy round."  My motto is, "If I was any good, they'd be paying me to play this course."

I play better buzzed/borderline drunk. The first four holes are usually pretty bad, then I hit my stride by the third beer.

Had some amazing drives last time out when I was pissy haha.....Finished with four straight pars and barely missed a birdie putt.

Designated drivers are the bees knees

Yesterday at Navy course (Destroyer) - 93

Definitely wanna play that one, looks pretty fun and challenging. Lotttsss of water.

Plus teeing off next to a freaking airstrip is all kinds of cool

For county courses I like ranching park in west LA. They used to hold the old Los Angeles open there, as well as a senior event. Fun corse, but you need to have a county card to get on.

For pure awesome scenery and a wonderfully kept secret ourselves, try rancho verde in Palos verdes. Fantastic, one ofthe most enjoyable rounds of golf you'll experience.

I grew up play Costa Del Sol every Wednesday for $5 for junior night. Me and my brothers would every once in a while go to shore cliffs because it was the only course we could afford. We also used to go to big tee and p,ay under the lights. Pretty sure that one is gone now.

I've not played shorecliffs. I probably play milesquare and willowick the most. I always get such good deals.

 

costa del sol or Strawberry Farms before work. 

Doesn't Strawberry have a pretty good back 9 deal in the morning?

I drove by River View today. Oh man, what an awful, awful place to golf. I couldn't imagine walking that course. I'd recommend Willowick over River View any day. 

 

My spread over my last 5 rounds is pretty brutal:

 

89, 91, 100, 117, 95

 

I picked up the shanks when I shot a 100 playing with Bruce. They got worse my next outing. Way worse. Righted it a bit my last round. Damndest thing... I'm hitting my driver, 3-wood , hybrid and 4 iron very well right now, but I'm having a bitch of a time squaring the club face with any other iron. I literally have to play for a hook to keep from slicing it. I'm in the middle of a hiatus. Need to recharge the batteries a bit.

I have, on expert authority, a tip for your iron play.

Hit the ball on the up swing.

Beers and stogies on the golf course are great.  I will rock that on the weekends (usually ends up with my front 9 being much better than my back 9).  In the mornings during the week I like to play 9 and see how my game is doing, nice to be done by 8 so making it to work isn't too tough.
