How'd you play?

Thanks a lot... Bill.  It was interesting playing from there.  On several holes I had no idea what line or club to use off the tee.  In the end I just used driver for all par 4 and 5 holes, except for the drivable par 4 #14 where I used my 3H.  On the par 5 #18 hole the lady that hits longer than me said she uses her 3W because her driver can reach the water at the dogleg.  I said, "Well then I can't reach it!"  🤣  Hit a perfect drive to the middle of the fairway at the dogleg.  Since I never get to go for the green in two shots, I tried it.  Flushed my 3H, all carry over water and bunker; came up short in the sand.  However, I got up and down for sandy birdie!!

I have a sneaking hunch my Yuma gang is going to lobby for either me to move to the blue or them to the senior.  My rebuttal is that we all got a year older.  Playing from the women's tee would make club selection interesting.  Maybe I'll try it the next time the course is deserted.

After playing it I've decided (not because of my score)  that there should be a lot more courses like it in the world.  My beginner buddy had a fun time without being asked to perform shots that a beginner wouldn't have in their repertoire, he got to have a couple real birdie looks, make a par, and make a lot of short irons swings.  For me it was basically a short game practice all day.  I didn't have to pull a club north of the 4 iron all day and I only hit that once -- off the tee on the longest, 379 yard, par 4.

Often referred to as "executive course" layouts, and typically 9 holes, I've played a few over the years that are lots of fun. Most of the popular retirement and snowbird locations have these tracks.  Las Barrancas in Yuma has one they call an executive but it has tee positions that offer close to standard length too.

A gorgeous Geoffrey Cornish executive course layout in Middleton, Massachusetts folded a couple of years ago, and that really disappointed me a lot.  It was maintained beautifully, it was easy to walk,  and it was so much fun to play.   They used to have a really good pro shop, too.  I never bought a set  there, but I bought several single clubs and other gear.  The pro shop diminished in recent years as green grass pro shops have everywhere.

At one time they had a lady teaching pro there who was almost able to teach me how to chip instead of lobbing the ball everywhere.

Anyway, nothing lasts forever, but we had some fun shootouts there and i miss it.

I had a par three course near me when I lived in CT. A real par three. No mats, and the lengths ranged from 100 yards to 250 yards. There were even a few water holes and elevation changes. To me that is the best way to work on your short game. It was so much fun to play. We even had our work league there.

I learned on a little par 33 here in LA, but while that little course has a place in y heart it's so heavily traveled that it's pretty beat up. This is the first time I've run across a full 18 executive, which, despite the clear heavy traffic was in pretty good shape.  I did fix a half dozen pitch marks on every green, but thats kind of normal for LA unless you get onto a private track.    It was such an enjoyable experience that I told my buddy that I'd play there with him any time he wants, and that if he wanted and that it was an excellent place to learn/practice.   I'm also going to bring my daughter out there when she gets big enough to actually play.  It's a great learner course for kids because of the yardages.

Yep....when I lived in Fargo ND, there was a great little par 3 that was excellent for working on iron play.  I used to play that quite often just as a way to work on approach shots and short game.

Was striking the ball pretty well on the front 9 but then fell apart pretty early on, on the back 9. Don't know what happened really, my head just wasn't it or something. It wasn't just my golf game. I flipped my electric cart over twice on the back 9, had never done that before. Maybe because I didn't have any snacks today during my round or something.

Not familiar with that course.  Initially I thought you may have been referring to the now gone Canton GC.

Today was my first round since I returned from my trip to Pinehurst.  I played at my local with a good friend.  It was a very nice day, and a great round.  My driver behaved itself;  I only missed on fairway! Now if only my wedges would behave, I might actually call myself a golfer! LOL  As my usual, the front time was better than the back, but really I am happy with the result.

Great score!!  I found the back nine... well, quite challenging and requiring some course knowledge.  

Have you made it over to see the Ladies at the Cambia Classic in West Linn??

I have not made it over to Oregon Golf Club to watch. Was planning on trying to go watch before it was moves from Columbia Edgewater. Oregon Golf Club is the worst course ever to walk though. Chambers Bay and other "hilly" courses are flat by comparison
