Nice round! We used to play there a couple years ago for our work outing. Fun course with some elevation changes. I haven’t played in almost a month☹️. And I have my first tournament on Sunday haha. This should go well 

Get to the range! Well, it never helps me.  I worked on my swing rotation. Amazing how straight the ball goes when you fully rotate your body. Now, IF I can only remember to do it the next time.

Yes, and you can get grafted heirloom varieties so they won't lose any flavor like you often get with hybrids. It's really cool.

Yes they are grafted on to a disease resistant plant/roots. Will report back.

For the FIRST TIME in over a year, I have just mowed the lawn without leaving a rut or tracks. The ground is dry enough to get my zero turn through without getting stuck, particularly in my back yard swamp area, Woo HOO!!!!   Feels like a drought!!!

Yeah, if we get any substantial down pours this weekend, we are screwed again.

Broad Run near West Chester. Scenic but very long cart paths due to elevation changes (with switchbacks) and long distances between holes.

I haven't played here in about 30yrs. Course is NOT forgiving :).  Greens where aerated a few weeks and do need some work.

Haven't played there in years either. Tee boxes need a lot of work from the looks of it.

Nothing shocking in Monterey forecast, looks like highs in the 60s. Sunniest days Thu & Fri; cloudier on weekend. Lol 20C predicted at 850mb, we'd be in the 90s with that.

Pebble Beach the site of this year's US open is also the site of the largest winning margin in a major - Tiger Woods 2000, 15 shots. Also one of the shortest major venue in a while. 

Quote from Jack Nicklaus

If I had only one more round to play, I would choose to play it at Pebble Beach. I've loved this course from the first time I saw it. It's possibly the best in the world.

I am seriously thinking about playing one more round there myself.  Anyone planning on going and if you have the ability to walk, take a caddy and walk. Don't take a cart (it is cart path only).
