Teed off at 1:11 p.m. on a beautiful sunny 68 degree day . Me and UGP got paired up with a couple of other singles. 

It was the perfect day for a  golf game. Light winds ,perfect temps, a golf course in very good condition and a golf course  with zero homes lining the fairways. 

For me, there is something special about playing afternoon golf.  No dew on the fairways or greens. Less crowded. And my body's aches seem to ache less.

This was my fourth round of golf with UGP on this trip. If you  ever get a chance to Tee It Up with him,take it. He's a good guy and I guarantee you'll have a good time.

MBN West.

Fairways. .. very good

Greens... the quickest of the trip for me and they rolled smooth. I'm saying they were a 10 on the stimp. Some downhill putts would roll several feet past even if you thought you had perfect speed. Not many straight putts.

Great greens today.

Rough... not too high. No buried lies.

Bunkers... sand was thin. They should  add sand to greenside bunkers. 

Tees.... very good.

Cart paths.... I didn't notice anything bad, but we drove fairway most of the day.

This was the  8th and final round of my golf trip .I will take the next two days just to hang out with my wife at the rental condo.

Its been great golf weather.No rainouts.

I will post a trip report including restaurants in the near future.

Lucky man to play with UGP so often. 😀

 

Thanks for this another great report. The West course is very popular amongst the snowbirds.

Nice report on the West Course at MBN, as with the others there it does not disappoint.   Can't agree with you more on playing with UGP, a very good guy and watching him hit his hybrids is something to see.  Enjoy your final 2 days.

JW payed with UGH not UGP 4 times but we had a lot of fun - JW played very well at West and beat me 2 up. West was far better than I expected - greens were as good as anywhere in MB except for Surf/Dunes. Rolled true and  quick. Downhill was very tough. West is a good track - use it for an opening or closing round, it's by far the easiest of the MBN courses.

There are actually 3 UG's   UGP (my favorite) UGH (frustrating) and UGS (maddening) JW played with all three

What a great job you John and UGP did in terms of reporting!

My most sincere thanks!

That said, I really like MBN West. This is a great course for warming up during a MB golf stay!

Take care on the way back home!

Thank you Denis, Gary & S**H.

Larry, I would like to, but would still be a few years away.

UGP what do you think about that ugly swing ? Any tips ?

How's your bowling scores!!!!

You shot 75 with that swing - try new clubs, I have a set to sell!

We talked about the turn - you hit with your arms and not a lot of body and release of the hands.

Drive home safe - hope to see you before next year.

JW11,  You are very accurate, with a compact swing, as UGP described.   

I think for distance, more shoulder turn, more wrist cock, arms/hands higher on backswing, 
but that can cost you accuracy.

Your swing is very compact, but as Art said you are very accurate. Probably that you reach a lot of fairways with your driver. I would guess that your ratio of GIRs (Green In Regulation) is high. You know surely that you have not to have a longer backswing for to play below 80. For example, UGP has a very short backswing but he scores almost everytime...Except when he plays like UGS or UGH 😉 🤣

JW - Don't worry about the mechanics - worry about timing. Quevy has a beautiful swing that works, I have an ugly swing that works
