We were blessed today to play with another great couple of guys, Mr. Mike Cook of The Care of Trees, Inc. and Mr. Scott Schakraft of Huntsville Country Club. These two good friends joked around and needled each other all day and like Robin and I just simply enjoyed the round.
Old MacDonald golf course is a very forgiving golf course with very forgiving and wide fairways. It was great to just hit the ball and go find it, and hit it again. Only one ball lost today.
Several bunkers were laced with used railroad ties which gave a great diversity to the landscape and to the playability of the golf course. You would be amazed how high in the air a golf ball goes when it hits a slanted railroad tie at just the right angle.
I tried to show you the bunkers at Old MacDonald. Here is an example of the enormous greens on the course. It is the green at #8 and is over 22,000 square feet in size. We were told it took around an hour and fifteen minutes to walk mow this one green and I can believe it.
Great day at Old MacDonald and off to Pacific Dunes in the morning.
