Back from the Azores. Tom may want to relocate. Temps in the 70s. A brief shower or two most days.Thick, weed-free Bermuda grass on lawns and golf course.  Looked bullet-proof.

My boys and I competed in the Philadelphia Disc Golf open this past weekend.  All three of us "cashed" and took home some prizes.   So cool to share a new sport with the juniors.   Looking forwar

My 8 yr. daughter’s school project (planting sunflower seeds after shutdown) has umm....been a success. She is ecstatic, 10-12 feet later.

Anyone recommend a golf course in the Atlantic City area? I'll be there next Sunday. 

Ballamor is super nice and one of my favorites. . Shoregate if you wanna drive south (directly outside of Sea Isle). Tougher to play, but nice layout.  Atlantic City country club if you wanna pony up $$. Then there’s always Seaview resort.

If he can keep his wrists healthy, he has that it factor to win.    I hope your Ballamor round is this morning. 

Nope, 12:30pm. Not happy about it. Hoping a marine layer keeps clouds overhead,  but that's not my luck.

Played Oak Island CC a couple times last week, remarkable recovery after Hurricane Florence & over 100" of rain last year. They lost 11 greens from flooding & over 250 trees from Florence. Thursday I we were golfing at a safari with all the wildlife running, swimming & flying around.

Appreciate the recommendations for Ballamor. Beautiful course, no one in front or behind us. 

Ominous clouds around and mostly cloudy with a southerly breeze.  Hot as.. well, you know what I mean. 😉

It was a great time. Since there was nobody behind us they were turning the sprinklers on as we finished the holes.

Finished with a 86. Happy with that and it would have been better if not for those DAMN sand traps... 🤐

86 is a great score on that course. I don't think my cartner & I scrambled an 86.  It is a very nice set up with three clusters of 6 holes or so in each cluster.

Forgiving fairways for the most part. Sand traps were tough. Best course I played this year.
