38 F when we teed off this morning. A slight breeze out of the northwest. Two of us, each with our covered carts. The course is requiring cart path only for the months of December/January hoping to give the fairways some recoup time. So, the goal is to hit it close to the cart path. Still, walking from the cart path to the ball adds some time to the round.
They let us go right at 10 a.m. Well, it's 12.30 as I type this and I'm home eating lunch with 18 holes done. We played the 18 in 1 hour, 45 minutes.
Not keeping score this time of year. Just keeping dots... par or better. I had him up $1.25, but he came back on the last couple holes and only owed my 0.75 when we finished.
I love NASCAR golf!!! Hit it. Find it. Hit it again. First to the tee box hits. First to the green putts. No dillydallying for us!!!! He's 83 and I'm 77. We are just glad to be playing and out of our recliners.

Three rounds already this year. Course was closed the 1st. Trying to snow a little today.
All three days it's been in the upper 30's to low 40's. Only one of our regular group and I shouldered the responsibility to play. As my golf partner says, "If you're a fireman you put out fires. If you're a golfer, you play golf!" He's 83.
There wasn't any wind so really turned out to be great days for golf. Didn't let us off until noon on 2 of the days and 1 p.m. on the other due to frost.

As usual, we played NASCAR golf. The course is holding us to cart path only December/January/February. We're trying to give the fairways some rest due to still coming back from winter kill last year. So, it you don't hit it close to the cart path, you get your exercise and it takes a tad bit longer to play.

All three rounds we finished 18 in under 2 hours. One day, 1 hour 35 minutes from tee off on #1 to holing out on #18!

Wednesday, they sent 2 walkers off #10 as we teed off on #1. We caught them on hole 14! They had played 5 holes while we were playing our 14th.

Pretty profitable year! Netted $1.50 so far!!!!

Wow! Even on a 5k yard course that's fast.
Whoever gets to their ball first hits, whether you're the farthest out or not. Whoever gets to the green first putts, whether you're the farthest out or not. Whoever gets to the tee box first hits.
We both trust each other...and aren't bothered by someone in a cart running down the cart path 50 yards in front of you.
Now and then, a ball will crawl under some leaves left along the fairway. 20 second rule applies. Drop another. Hit and git!!!

Unless money is on the line or competition. Ready golf all the time. We hit whenever we're ready. Assuming no one is in our direct path. Safety first, and speed is a very close second.

Played a par-3 course on Tuesday. Frontier Golf

In 1964 some guy bought 10 acres and built a 9-hole par 3 course and people started showing up, so it's been an official golf course ever since. Holes range from 90-170 yards so I grabbed my carry bag and only loaded 7-iron and down, which worked out perfectly. The owner says during the summer it's filled with guys teaching their grandkids how to play, so that sounds like a nightmare. While we were there we only saw one other guy, so we finished 18 in an hour and a half.

As for what I shot, I finished -1 with a string of 3 birds in a row (the 4th bounced off the pin). It was fun and I'd do it again.
