Day 45 - 100 days, 100 courses (Saturday, April 27, 2019)

This was the beginning of 9 days in Florida and my first visit to the panhandle.

We had a glorious day and I met up with 3 very nice guys from Sacramento. They were a hoot to play with. This is an annual outing for them and boy do they let go.

The course was beautiful and very playable. I was going along great and at #12 and I was thinking how amazing it was that I hadn’t lost a ball.

I then proceeded to lose one on each of the next 3 holes but managed to bogey all three. Shot an 87.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

the greens have been reduced to tiny -- seems like they are trying to save a buck and may be losing quality; restrooms in clubhouse a mess and commodes backed up.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles
Bottom line: Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

This course has gone downhill the last 2 or 3 years. I would not play it again unless it is dramatically improved.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: Better courses for less nearby, Worse than average course for the area
