Light rain, maybe... but rain, rain... we aren’t playing on TV for money.
Nope not for money but I'm teeing it up at 11:00 today. I'm not sugar. I won't melt. I've been working from home 15 months now. If anyone thinks rain will prevent me from being outside they are nuts. Well, I'm kind of nuts. Plus my hands are now thawed out from fishing last night. All systems go. Have a great weekend.

We won't get to 50 today and they canceled our member member tournament this weekend.

I took my first t-shirt Harley ride two days ago in 85 degree weather!

I did get through 18 yesterday at Sagamore in North Hampton NH. Rained the entire 18 and the wind made a number of holes play really really long. It really wasn't that bad if you dressed right. The other two playing partners only reported numb finger tips and wet feet. This was also the first 18 of the year that I walked. I had been diagnosed with arthritis in my right hip earlier in the spring and have been doing hip mobility work since. Happy to report it went well at least for my hip. Have a great weekend.

Playing Crumpin Fox next weekend. Never played it, partially out of fear, but a buddy that I haven't seen in over a year and a half (he was very COVID cautious) picked it out so I'm in. My brother and I have discussed and dismissed in the past due to perceived difficulty. Anyone on here got some tips that may help?

Just squeezed in a quick 2 hour round between bouts of rain. It was super windy where we played though some holes played unbelievably long.

Playing tomorrow hopefully the wind will drop a bit. It has been a crappy Memorial Day weekend this year.

It's a good track but they have a couple of really stupid greens with huge mounds in the middle to make sure you don't end up on the wrong side of those!

I'm playing Red Tail early tomorrow morning, hoping the course is playable after all the rain.

I am playing at 1040 in Oxford Ma at Pine Ridge country club. You are welcome to join us. I think there is a single spot left. The course is nothing fancy for a public course.

Crumpin Fox is a great time. That reminds me I need to get down there. Have a great time!

Follow up, yes Red Tail is very playable! In great shape and we had only a 2some in front of us. They were walking and graciously let us play through on 11 so we got done in 3 hours. Would have been faster but it was cart path only. Had one of those psycho rounds, 3 doubles on the front and 2 birdies on the back!

Played Cyprian Keyes today... overall , not bad. Greens were running smooth, not too fast but fast enough. A few wet spots here and there called for some standing water relief.

a weird day... I went 44/36. I can’t believe it didn’t rain, every forecast showed rain and it was bone dry.

Got talked into playing Granite Links tomorrow... while I’ve always been interested in playing the track, it will take me 3-5 holes to shake off the 150 dollar price tag.

Possible record highs.

Ha! Same exact splits on my "psycho" round @ Red Tail. :D
