Day 64 - 100 days, 100 courses (Thursday, May 16, 2019)

When I got to the club there was still dew on the greens and the sun was in my eyes for the first few holes. But sunspots could not hide the beauty of the Arnold Palmer design.

It did feel like a day at the beach as I managed to hit 6 traps during the round including the 18th which was very intimidating with water in the other side of the green.

Shot and 82 and ended up losing yesterday’s lucky ball.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
