A bunch of old, worn out clubs

I'm always looking for a playing partner of similar ability to play with. No betting, or anything, just good-natured competition for the love of the game.

I got a great price after 11am on Tuesday, Nov. 14, so I gave Westridge a whirl. The service was great in the pro shop … very efficient and courteous.
Course conditions were pretty darn good. Cart path only on holes 1 and 10. The tee boxes had been over seeded, so all the movable markers were at the very back of the teeing areas. Tee to green, the grass coverage was good to adequate. The bunkers I was in had enough sand in them, though the players ahead of me failed to rake their footprints on a couple of occasions (not the course's fault).The greens were in good shape, which means they are tricky to read for players who don't play here often.
I really enjoy the layout here. It's plenty long for recreational players, and
many of the holes have unique character and challenging greens. I had a couple issues with previous management here, but the current owner seems to be better. It looks like Westridge will be allowed to die with dignity, at least.
Sentimentality is a big part of the golf landscape. I suggest that you play Westridge at least once more … if you're heart is in the game.» Close

I played with the gk gurus, teeing off at about 1:30 on Thursday. It was a fun afternoon, and a great deal for such a fine golf course. Every aspect of the experience was above average, from the courteous and professional service in the pro shop, to the challenging layout and excellent condition of the golf course itself.
Two things struck me, in particular, about playing Marine Memorial. First, the course plays much longer than the yardage on the card. The fairways and other areas through the green were pretty wet, so tee shots didn't roll out very much. This, combined with significant, swirling wind, made for constant calculation and recalculation when pulling a club.
Second, I really feel like this is a course that requires a few trips around to learn the places NOT to hit the ball. Several times I had pitch shots around the greens that were well beyond my skill set. The greens also have grain and many subtle contours which make for some difficult two putts for those who haven't played here too often.
All in all, I had a great time … though my game wasn't up to the challenge. I highly recommend the course, though I would suggest playing it forward the first time around.
Thanks, again, Johnny!» Close
