That's freaking awesome, Tom! I see on Twitter this morning that the Fried Egg had a flyover video on the course that you might enjoy watching as part of your preparation and give you an idea as to how the course is laid out.

I think that's a good goal and that Tom has a pretty good chance of taking out a couple of players. 

Thanks for the video. Looks like its going to be a fun challenge.

You're welcome! I can't wait to hear about your trip out there and see the photos from that beautiful course. I have a feeling you'll be able to score really well.

Played one of my favorite joints in PHX. The Raven. I was a fill in for my buddy's men's league. 

Played really well on the front 9 and shot 39. But I completely $#!T the bed on the back with a devastating 47. The heat today just destroyed me at about hole 10

Picked up this dope murdered out cap

And finally.. this is no joke. This actually happened. Luckily the hole ran downhill but not until about 300 yds so I still had to get there. 354 yds!

Yah, that drive is definitely "position A".  👏 I'm often amazed how many AZ courses look like they could be located in much less hostile environs. That second photo looks like Anywhere, USA.  I think this course was where I had the option to do my TrueSpec fitting on real turf.

I wasn't going to post my birthday round today; it's really not worth reading... but here it is anyway.  

Rain quit just before wen teed off.  My wife and I played with another couple that we play with frequently.  The problem was that in front of us was our Men's Club member-guest followed by a small corporate tournament... bad day to play!!  When we got to the #3 tee, we were the 5th group on this 350y par 4; group on the green, group in the fairway, and two other groups waiting on the tee in front of us.  Aargh!!  When it was our turn to tee off, we had been on the course for an hour and played two holes!!!  I was ready to quit, but my wife and friends said "What else are we going to do?"...  I said "Go to the bar!"  I was overruled.

The pace picked top a little when we got to the par 5 #5, but we still had to wait on every shot... the entire round!  It was still golf, and we were outside in warm sunny weather with friends, but... dang!!!

Couldn't get into any kind of rhythm.  I had 12 bogeys and 6 pars for an 84... bogeyed the first 7 holes, but at least I kept doubles off the scorecard.

Get rid of Bogies and you’ll hit that 75!!

It's probably one of my top 5 courses here. Such a non-typical AZ courses and really reminds me of some of the courses I used to play when we lived in Monterey, CA with all the pines and rolling fairways. Also one of the few courses here with soft accepting greens where you can actually play to the pin yardage.

Did it twice last year, but the way I'm hitting the ball now, 75 looks a looooog way off.

... Killer drive on #9*! Right there with you and I love Raven. Funny when I first moved here I was not too crazy about the course because as you said, it is not very typical of a desert course and looks more like North Carolina with all the pine trees. Then I experienced my first summer with temps in the 110-115 range. I join as an Arcis member for the summer because it is so heavily tree lined and I can park my cart in the shade on almost every shot. As you know when it gets above 110* shade is a must if you don't want to keep a icy wet towel to place over your seat every time you leave the cart. Winter rates above $200 are reduced to $29 in summer with the Arcis card. 

* How far did you hit your drive on #12? Even I can catch the downslope and sometimes have an iron to get there in two but I am nowhere near as long as you. The only time I have seen 354yds on #9 is when I hit it in the trees off the tee and punched out down the fairway! 🤪

Ha ha, 12 was another story. That's when the wheels were coming off. Not a bad drive but it probably went as high as it did far so I didn't get any roll out. I was lucky if I got 260 out of it. I did have a pretty pristine lie so was able to capitalize on a monster 3 wood that went just as far as my driver and put me within about 20 feet of the green. 

I will say that on #5 I gave in to peer pressure.  Instead of playing a layup 6i I challenged the bunker gods and ended up driving through the green to end up on the back left rough on the pin side of the hole. Played my chip within 5' and made the putt for birdie.

I've been playing in AZ for 25 years and have never had the heat impact me like yesterday. It wasn't even THAT hot at 104°. Was up all night with horrible leg cramps and stomach problems. I'm realizing now that I had a stomach bug coming on while I was playing so that might be why I was physically struggling so much half way through.
