Ancil Hoffman

Sharon and I played golf with Alan and Jeanie at Ancil Hoffman. We scheduled the day when we got together with the Chabriers in August. Alan is part of the extended Davis Mafia rugby group.

As we started to get organized to play, I got a shock. They had the front nine closed. We were playing the back nine twice.

Teeing off at 9:16 am, the course played slow. It took us more than four hours and forty minutes to play 18 holes.

I didn't feel good on the driving range. I had a rough first nine holes, but settled down a little after the turn until I fell apart on 16. I shot a liberally scored 115.

After one Golftec lesson and some work on the driving range over the last two weeks, I feel like I am making better contact. I am pushing a lot of shots to the left. My short term goal is to be able to shoot better an double bogey golf consistently...

The four of us had lunch together at the Main Event Bar & Grill at the course. Afterwards, Sharon rushed to an executive board meeting of the Deterding Ranch H0meowners association.

One footnote. A number of us, including Alan and I, played in a rugby tournament in Truckee on Labor Day weekend of 1983 as the OATS [Old Aggie Touring Side]. There were several iconic events from that weekend, including Wilson breaking his ankle and Bachman throwing a knife into a wall at the end of the table at the Victorian Station in Tahoe City. Although I don't remember interacting with her, Jeanie was at that tournament; he had just started dating Alan.
