Three was not a charm, weather-wise
Bucking the weather odds and weather gods three days in a row seemed like a long shot, and Mother Nature had her say today with a low ceiling, mist and occasional showers. The group played Old Macdonald — the most recent of the four regulation courses here — and again came in all smiles, some noting that this was their favorite so far.
Yours truly opted for the warmth and comfort of the Lodge, so didn’t experience it first-hand. Opened in 2010, the layout is a tribute to C. B. Macdonald and was designed by Tom Doak and Jim Urbina. Greens are huge, fairways wide and open, and bunkers something to stay out of.
After lunch, some guys went back out to play another 18, others to play the 13-hole Preserve course before pizza and beer for dinner.
