Match Play 1.20
Altadena

Thu, January 23, 2020

We had a fine morning with clear skies and nice warmer weather... a  perfect morning for golf. Most enjoyed this new format where it's nice that when you lose a hole, it doesn't matter by how many strokes, so you just move on to the next hole. You can see in many of the matches there can be a back and forth through the match.

De Bell 1.20
DeBell

Wed, January 15, 2020

Our members arrived this morning wondering why they came in the first place, and may have left feeling the same. But De Bell is an interesting course and I do look forward go playing it again, just not too soon.  Many of us learned to use the new Equitable Stroke Control method of picking up at triple bogey. (That is our club local rule for an otherwise complicated ESC system)

 

Kim led in low gross with  his 91, and Jim Stowell was not that far behind even with lost balls and several hikes up the mountain side. He added a skin and on-in-one to his take.  Vester hung in there for third and posted the other on-in-one.

Wilson

Tue, November 19, 2019

It was the best of times.   Beautiful morning, lovely grounds, scenic skies, course in pretty good shape, greens were well tended.

It was the worst of times.  Long long course. Fast and tricky greens and quite a few three putts and maybe a couple of 4 putts?

Match Play
Altadena

Thu, October 24, 2019

We only fielded four foursomes today perhaps because of the match play format. It was a beautiful morning to play and we noticed that the greens have recovered nicely from earlier maintenance and most of the fairways are looking.... better than fair.  

 

I think most found the match play interesting and a different focus for playing golf.  There were no all square matches. 

Course:

Don and Vester had strong rounds at 40 gross each.

Course:
5 Of Clubs 10.19
Altadena

Thu, October 3, 2019

Today's 5 of clubs saw scores not much above average suggesting that those other 9 clubs are superfluous, but not really right? We were playing up on all the tees because the regular tee boxes were under maintenance. Still there were some pretty good scores. 

 

Charles took low net today topping the leaderboard while Leo added a skin to his second place placing him at the top of payout list.  Ray had enough nice holes to take two skins. Doc took third and added one of the five on-in-ones.

Altadena

Thu, August 22, 2019

We had a nice turnout today with great weather. The fairways are looking fantastic.  How nice to enjoy such a fine muni course!  From the looks of the scores, I wonder if people were playing for low putts?  Vester had a very reasonable 42 with a bunch of 46's behind him.  Vester wins low gross honors, but Herman takes the money in Low net.  Richard carded the lowest putt count and we're assured there were no gimmes.  Doc was a close second with a bunch tied for third in low  putts.  The skin pool was split between Leo and Jim Rutledge.
