2022 Sea Ranch - Day #2

The plan for the day was playing golf. Originally, we planned to play on Sunday. With gale force winds forecasted for Sunday afternoon, we switched the tee time to Saturday as we were driving over on Friday.

After a quick light breakfast, we drove to the Sea Ranch Lodge and bought a couple of sandwiches. From there, we headed to the golf course. We were surprised to find that they have opened a cafe at the golf course. The lodge and the golf course are under new management. At the turn, we ended up talking to the new manager of the golf course.

Teeing off at 9:30 am, I started off horribly, but then settled down. I birdied the par four fourth hole; I can't remember the last time I actually birdied a hole. I bogeyed the par five six which has haunted me in the past. I hit safely with a six iron to the front right of the green on the par three eighth over the gully. I hit safely to the right front of the green on the par three seventeenth with a seven iron. I ended up with a very liberally scored 104. The scorecard is here.

Sharon and I had the course to ourselves for most of the day. A single came up behind us on the back nine. We let him pass on thirteen. We were done by 1:30 pm.

Back at the rental, I spent some time in the hot tub. Unlike most Sea Ranch properties, the hot tub is enclosed in a glass solarium.

Sharon made a dinner reservation at the Sea Ranch Lodge. We went early and had a drink at the bar. The place was packed. We are both glad to see the lodge open again.

For an appetizer, we split a halibut ceviche. She had black cod for an entree, while I had a lamb loin and shank dish. The food was very good. We are planning to go back with the Larkins on Friday.

We finished the night watching Marry Me on the AppleTV.
