Played Pronghorn Nicklaus course today. It can really kick your teeth in. I was cruising along making pars and then boom. Triple. Cruising along boom double. There are some wild ass greens out there. I keep bugging the staff to let me on the Fazio. We will see if I can wear them down over the five days I’m here.
Spontaneous and serendipitous trip out to Olympic Club’s “Cliffs” Par 3 course. As luck would have it, I was in the right place at the right time to accept the invite. Great views, fun shots, and great company! A double green with a bunker in the middle?!
It’s probably the best Nicklaus I’ve played. I feel like it asked a lot of interesting questions and the green complexes are better than anything I’ve seen from him. There’s probably a few more center line trees/bunkers than it needs and there are some cheesy features but overall I was impressed. And I didn’t expect to be impressed. Still hustling hard to get on Fazio.
Been playing Bald Eagle a ton since it’s reopening. due to the border still being weird not many people are going down to play it. Their loss though as we have the first tee time out Saturday mornings and play in <3 hours.
Still pretty scruffy and the fairways are baked out but the transformation of the greens from being teebox speed 6 weeks ago when they reopened has been awesome. Been cool to see the course get back into better shape each week.
