Have fun and look forward to reading about your trip.

It's The Golfers Journal.  Very Nice.

Looks amazing!

Let me know how Hole 8 at the Straits course treats you.  I'll be stationed there as a volunteer at the Ryder Cup next year.

Hole 8 is a beast!! I was telling guys at dinner tonight about it.  And how the Championship Tees are so far back from even the tips, that you can't almost see them. 

Great hole to get duty at.

Pics are amazing Rob!  Keep'em coming.  

Looks as though those forecaddies are going to get their money's worth looking in that high grass all day long for your balls.  HA! 

We didn't take forecsddies.  Actually I hit the ball pretty straight today.   Plus I don't hit it far enough to reach the trouble.

Ok. I posted a lot of stuff today on SM so you can see most of it there. Both Facebook and IG @bucketsandbirds.  

The day was great.  

Shotgun start on The River.  I hit the ball pretty well for the most part.  But playing 6500 yards, about 400 more than Im used to out some pressure on the short game.  And these greens. I absolutely love them.  The fastest I have played on in many years and quite possibly ever---and I have played Pinehurst No.2

Plus the undulation was crazy on just about every one.  Missed putts routinely ran 3 to 5 feet  past the hole.   

We played a blind draw, two man better ball format.  I shot 103 and had a 13 handicap (80%) all in all while not a good score considering the length, and greens I wasn't hating it.   

After the post round luncj we headed out to a clinic by Cameron McCormick.  That was fun and again a pic and video on my SM pages. 

Tomorrow is the Big Fish....The straits couese.  #cantwait

On the meantime here are some pictures from today.

I’d play River a few times a season when I lived there. We’d actually play three putt skins - if you were the only one in the group who didn’t three putt you won a skin -

You could have a double breaker from five feet on that course. :)

The championship 18 10-18 Meadow Valley, 1-4, 14-18 River is my favorite course ever - period

Today we wrapped up the event at The Straights course.  Needless to say it was an incredible 18 hole walk and the 4:45 went by in the blink of an eye 😎

Indeed it was.  As for the SWAG, incredible as udusal.  My fiance said on the phone about it.  I'm sure you have some nice Show &Tell to bring home as usual.  She was right.  Ha

Thanks.  Headed home now.  Overall I was pleased with my play with the exception thst I didn't make a putt outside 3 feet all week.  Which is actually extremely unlike my game.  

That said.  It was more about the meeting up with the group, hanging out and believable courses than the score.   

Well except for the guy who shot 4 over par for two days to win rhdkiw gross individual title that was a surprise addition to the event.  He wins his choice or T Series irons.
