    Lost all my bad habits and very happy with that score. I'm sure they will come back next time.
    Didn't make any putts over 5'. Tee to green was pretty good though. Shoulda, coulda, woulda and wishful thinking score was 75.. No golf for at least a week as rain is coming in tonight.

    Monday flew to Queenstown and on Tuesday played The Hills -- 6800 yards, 139 slope. Everyone struggled today, shot 89 but still won some bets.

    Millbrook, Jack's Point, Cape Kidnappers and Wairakei in next four days.

    Very little wind. Nice summer weather in Queenstown - upper 70's, mild winds, sun and partly cloudy. Jack's Point tomorrow, where winds can make all the difference. Hoping for another calm day.

    Just found this thread!! Thanks Packer! Long time golfer here, currently 7 handicap. Played in Vegas a couple dozen times. Fortunately got to play Wynn and Shadow Creek, currently my favorite course in Vegas is TPC. Keep the pictures coming, it's a long winter here in Maine!

    Little golf today at Hillcrest country club gc in LA.
    Very exclusive club but maybe not because they let me play there today. Lots of history. Grocho, don rickles. Milton berle and many other old time movie stars and entertainment industry people. Shot 82..

    Quoting a friend.. "heard yesterday that Shadow Creek is finally instituting the $750 comp or pay to play rate, effective asap. Course is just too crowded and they feel this is a way to reduce the over crowding as even at a comp rate, you bring out a friend or two, and you are using up a lot of comps just to play golf for the day, let alone play twice while you are out there"..
    Four players is 3k. You have to generate 9k in theo or lose a crap load at the tables to cover this.

    I started playing golf in my 30's while living in Saudi Arabia. Yes - Saudi - the expats who came in to build the airport back in the 80's loved golf so much they built a sand course near the airport (some prince must have allowed the use of the land).

    I've been hooked ever since. Been as low as a 3 - have one hole-in-one and my low round is a 69. I live on a private 54 hole development in NC :) :)

    Wow SilverGolfer a 3 and started on your 30s! Your a natural. Good story. I've been playing since I'm 12 and yet to have a hole in one. I'm a 11 and as low as a 4. I suck. These days the inconsistency drives me wild. When I come out to NC later in the year let's play a round.
