Golf with Larry, Shadow Glen

Larry, Gene and I went golfing for Father's Day to Shadow Glen in Manor, Texas. A nice surprise. I expected flat and uninteresting. From the highway you see #16 and it is pretty much a links looking hole, long, bumpy, flat and tall grass.

This is the Clubhouse, you drop off your clubs out front. No carts in the parking lot. It was inexpensive as golf goes so that was nice.

We should have known from the putting green that we were in for sloping greens and trouble. This is Larry putting with the ball coming back to him after almost going in the hole. Automatic ball return!!

Larry's swing as we get down the course a few holes.

Larry in the rough. Can you see him swinging or at least his head and club?

Gene in his cart ahead of us. Look at all the bunkers, slope, narrow fairway, etc. This course is not easy. I quit keeping score on about hole #3.

A very interesting course. We had a great day. Larry won of course. We will have to try it again sometime. We were talking yesterday about how hard the Oakmont Course in Pennsylvania was for the U.S. Open. Gene said we should try to play it sometime. It is said to be the hardest course in the U.S. Joanna laughed and said we would be putting back and forth across the greens four or five times if we ever got to the greens. I felt that way today. Sigh.


Joanna said...

I believe I said y'all would be 8- or 10-putting all the way through. 4 or 5? No way!

Heh heh.

Anyway, 'glad you had fun.

Joanna, You know me, I can never rememberize anything.

Oakmont had a lottery for the news media and they played on Monday. Kevin Robbins wrote a commentary in the Statesman was sympathizing with Baddeley saying he was in the same rough and bunkers and now knew how hard it was. He had a six where Baddeley had a seven, though. Robbins said he shot a 96. I wonder.....

Is this the course that was being installed there on 290, just at manor? If it is , wow does it lok good.
Yes, brisket in New Mexico. Homemade tortilla...

Jo Castillo said...

Yes, that is it. If you go to Manor on Google Maps, Satellite, you can see it in the dirt stages, they don't have up very recent satellite photos.
It is just beautiful now.

If we can get together this summer brisket and tortillas are easy!
