Day 33 - 100 days, 100 courses (Monday, April 15, 2019)

Golf is a funny game. In the morning I learn that my handicap has gone up 2 strokes in the afternoon I shoot my best round of the tour.

Northern Hills is part of the Alamo City Golf Trail. Eight courses in all. They were doing some maintenance; sanding greens and replacing the sprinting system on one hole. Heck, everyone has to do maintenance. At Northern Hills, they discounted the greens fees to compensate for the minor maintenance inconvenience which was totally fair.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

This used to be a private course in the 1970s. The city took it over in August of 2015 and bought all new equipment to bring it up to Alamo Golf Trail standards. Very good course by muni standards.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area

Despite the current drought conditions, greens are in excellent shape. Fairways are a little dry and grass is thin but what can you expect with no rain for 3 months.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Municipal course near SA Int'l Airport. Gets little afternoon play during summer. Played as a single on weekday and NEVER waited. Played from men's tees and finished in 2:45, including going back and replaying a hole! COurse not terribly challenged but in good shape, particularly after 6 months plus without rain! Great place for a mid handicapper to slip away late in the afternoon.
