Closer to you, I've played Boundary Oaks, Tilden Park & Diablo Creek recently, and they seem to be getting plenty of water.

PM me if you want to know more. Good luck.
Thanks for the info. I've been to Diablo Creek recently and the course is very green and in very good condition. So is Monarch Bay and Poppy Ridge. I'm just sad about Roddy Ranch.

Just got home from our Club's Senior championship. I placed 10th overall, but was 20 strokes back of the winner. Did manage to win back my entry fee.

Based on my golfing capabilities, that as close to a green as I get...

Close but No Cigar

I got close to a HIO yesterday @ Peacock Gap. It's an elevated tee so, we all watched it roll ~15 ft right at the cup...and just behind.

Maybe soon.

Yep...after lining it up very carefully.

It was a good day putting for me; 9-one putts & 6 of 8 successful scrambles for par. The rest of the game was 'meh'.

Interesting format, ours is one and out. How does your club score the field when all play 3 matches?

When did the "don't give a s**t factor" kick in for your opponent in the last match?

we have flights of 8, so if you lose the second day, you are out of the tourn; only half the field plays on Sunday

he kept fighting all the way - he missed several putts inside 5 ft, I made most of mine

I hit every fairway on the front and both greens on the par 3s, that doesn't happen very often...

BreakMaster Home Page

Anyone have experience with the break master? An 18 handicapper, who took second in a member guest I recently played in, was raving to me about this.

Seems like a lot of work.

yes we're all in the same "band" so no one gets more than a pop or two off of any other in the flight

Sounds like a huge 7 iron to me.
