We had a lazy morning. Sleeping late, we had room service (Everything Bagel and short pancake stack). We wandered down to the driving range about 10 am. I spent a long time on the driving range working on my swing. While I hit a few nice shots, I felt pretty inconsistent. I hardly ever putt before playing, but spent a few minutes on the putting green.
Sharon and I teed off at 11:10 am. The foursome included Mark from Houston and Matt from Dallas. Matt's wife rode with him.
I was a little apprehensive about the water on the first few holes and playing with other people. I got off to solid start, gained some confidence and built on it. It was probably the best that I have ever played through the first twelve holes. I had a 48 on the front nine. I parred the 520 yard Par 5 fourth hole. I fell completely apart on the last three holes. I ended up with a 109 with two mulligans off the tee in the last five holes. The greens were really fast. The scorecard is here.
The course and the weather were beautiful. I really enjoyed the day.
After getting cleaned up, Sharon and I had a late dinner sitting outside at the Bistro. It was a nice evening with a great sunset.
For starters and salad, we spilt Roasted Bone Marrow [Onion Jam, Fresh Parsley, Radish, Hawaiian Sea Salt, Brussels Sprouts Leaves, Pickled Mustards Seeds, Toasted Sourdough] and Summer Knights [Fresh Watermelon, Heirloom Tomato, Strawberries, Orange Segments, Baby Arugula, Chevre Goat Cheese, Almonds, Balsamic Glaze]. For entrees, I had the Llano Secco Ranch Pork Chop [Berkshire Center Cut Pork Chop, Grilled Artichoke Puree, Baby Lacinato Salad, Roasted Fingerling Potatoes], while Sharon had Alaskan Halibut [Grilled Halibut, Risotto, Pea Puree, Roasted Cauliflower, Snap Peas, Arrabbiata Sauce, Potato Strings]. For the second night in row, I think that I had the better entree...
