Got out and played golf at the Jersey shore for the first time in about 5 years played Cape May National for the first time and a nice layout. Started with two opening bogies and then righted the ship to shoot one over threat of the way. Had a few nice birdie looks that didn’t drop but overall a nice day out.

I had a pretty good night in league. Driver and irons were very good for me (don't ask about putting). My swing felt very relaxed, yet distances were good. I blame SuperSpeed

I had two more drives that were in the 260's, so I was definitely hitting closer to the center of the face today.
Ironically, my opponent made a comment after an awkward swing on the second tee. I intentionally felt like I was adding a Hideki pause at the top and started ripping the ball. I ended up crushing him, so thanks for the tip! 
In reality, I scored decently, but I've never seen him play so bad. He's a 3 for 9 holes and shot a 45.
Fox Den, another favorite!

Agreed! It's a fun course. Our league used to play at Raccoon Hills, but the opportunity came up last year to move to Fox Den for nearly the same price, so we jumped at it.

100x better than Raccoon. Especially now that they fixed the old 5th hole. Dumbest par 5 ever.

For everyone else, reading this: You teed off with a 8 or 9 iron to a corner, then a fairway wood up a hill, then another 9i or wedge into the green. You could try to cut around the corner if you hit a hybrid perfect, but otherwise you were hitting 3.

Didn't have my driver under control last night... had lots of punch outs, but managed to card my best round during league play this year including rolling in a 30 footer for birdie... 1 FW hit and a couple of 3 putts killed what could have been a special round in the rain

Google maps still has the old layout

They added a green just past the bend and made 5 a par 3 and added new tees to turn 6 into a par 5 instead of a par 4.

I was supposed to take the weekend off to spend time with my wife, but she said that I should play since this coming weekend is booked with helping a neighbor move (remind me to hide my truck in the future), and then traveling around SE Arizona since we are restricted to a 60 mile travel limit by the installation Commanding General.

Glad I went out to play because it was a good scoring weekend, even with the wind.  We had about 15-25mph winds on Saturday and Sunday.  The winds didn't hit till the back 9 on Saturday since we teed off early, but Sunday was a noon tee time, so we played in the wind all day.  Saturday was good as I had a little bet with a friend.  I birdied #2, and he slam dunked a wedge on #5 for eagle.  We both birdied #6, I birdied #7, he birdied #8, and I birdied #9.  We both shot 32 (-4) and halved the bet.  My buddy had a rough back 9 and shot 37.  I kept it steady and birdied three more holes.  This was the first bogey free round I have had all year, but it was awesome to birdie all four par5s then add a few others for a smooth 65 (-7).  My blind draw partner loved it because he only helped on one hole, shot 77 and made a little money. 

Sunday was good as we played the other course in town and played their mixed tees.  This really shortened the course but gave the shorter hitters a better scoring chance.  Even though the course only plays 6200y from the mixed tees the wind made it play a lot longer on some holes.  I continued to play well and birdied the first two holes (drove the fringe on #1, and hit a SW to 2 feet on #2).  Ended up getting lucky on the #5, a par5, and dropped a bomb from about 60' away (I thought I hit the putt a bit too hard, but the wind slowed it down).  Birdied the par 3 #8 and missed a 10 foot birdie putt on #9 for a 31 (-5).  Then I started to suck on the back 9.  The 10th green is small and tough with a false front on the front right.  The flag was placed right at the transition to the false front.  I was 18 feet for birdie, rolled the putt just across the right edge with enough speed to have the ball stop about 3 inches past the hole if it was on a flat green.  The ball almost ran off the green and gave me a 10 footer back.  Missed that bad boy.  The green really sped up on the back due to drying out from the wind.  Add to it being on the wrong side of the hole and you could not become aggressive on the putts.  Finished with two more bogeys for a 70 (-2).  Disappointing back 9, but the course is really a tale of two 9s.

We have a similar par5 here at a course I play.  The tee shot requires a straight shot of about 200y that leave over 340y left or you can hit a high cut out to 270y and still have 270y left.  Nothing quite like hitting a 3 iron or 5w off of a par5.

A friend once told me that if you want to shoot a decent score, you have to keep 6s off your card.  Well, I had 3 today.  One double due to dropping 2nd shot into a pond.  Another double on the back when a wayward tee shot set up a difficult shot that didn't work out and just couldn't seem to get the ball in the hole all day.  No birdies.  41/42 for an 83.

I hate when designers do this. I call them “rinky-dink” holes. If one has to tee off on a par 5 with an iron, that’s ridiculous.

I know the feeling all too well.

Played AC Country Club today and what a fun and quirky old golf course. Haven’t played it in close to 10 years and forgot just how fun this place is. The round starts with the first tee on the far edge of the putting green. Great little par 70 layout with 6 par 3’s and a bunch of long par 4’s and par 5’s. Shot a decent 74 with some shots that I would like to have back but looking forward to playing it again next month.
