2023 Lake Almanor - Day #4

The plan for the day was to play golf at Bailey Creek. We had 930 and 940 tee times. Although I thought some of the Tomasins or Snipes might join us, it ended up being Sharon, Jack, Jason, Nooter and I.

Sharon, Jack and Jason went off in front of us. They spent the day playing three man best ball. Nooter and I played with John Babcock, a retired PG&E electrician.

Although I felt pretty good on the driving range, I started off very rough. I settled down and parred three holes on the front nine. I ended up with a 108. Nooter had a 100.

We were playing match play and ended up even. Each of us won eight holes and we tied on two others.

The course is beautiful. It was in pretty nice shape. The starter said that the course is usually in the best shape in September. [Note to self], Sharon and I might need to come back in September some year.
When we got back to the cabins, I spent some time in cabin 5 talking with Tomasin and Snipes.

The Nooters made a great dinner of deconstructed shish kabobs.

Given that we are all older, everyone seems to be crashing before 10 pm. It is a much different rhythm than it was 20 to 30 years ago.
