Presidents Day Event at Aviara Golf Club
There were a lot of comments about the greens at Aviara. They were slower than normal and many found themselves giving the hole a bit too much respect and not getting the ball anywhere near it. Then, by the time late afternoon rolled around, some (only some) seemed to be rolling faster; the ball definitely got to the hole, but if it didn't go in, well...it just kept going! Combine the speed issues with the undulations and it was quite challenging.
The course itself was in great shape; fairways were definitely rolling hard and fast. There were some tight lies out there at times!
And a thank you to Stacey Hayashi for putting it all together for us.
Game of the day: We had 47 members playing a fun Team Presidents Game in which Holes 1-3, the team score was 2 Best Net, 1 Best Gross; Holes 4-6 was 3 Best Net; Holes 7-9 was 3 Best Net and 1 Best Gross; Holes 10-12 was 2 Best Net; Holes 13-15 was 3 Best Net and 1 Best Gross; and Holes 16-18 was 2 Best Net. This format allows everyone to play her own ball the entire round.
