4-21-2019 Surf Club w/UGP & Myrtlwood Palmetto
Today we met the man behind the hat...the Forum's very own Undercover Golf Pro @ the Surf Club.
First of all, if you get a chance to play with UGP, do it. Really enjoyed our round together...just wish I had played a little better. I did get a good tip/swing thought on about the 3rd hole that has been very helpful.
Surf Club was in prime condition. I had forgotten how much undulation was in the greens there & they were smooth & fast!
Back to no overseed around the greens & when I did miss a green (most of them) I usually was short-sided & hitting from a very tight lie.
If conditions are your priority, Surf Club has to win the "Best bang for the buck" award.
When you can thoroughly enjoy a round of golf while shooting a horrendous score, it's a sure thing you're on a great course with good company. That suns it up right there.
Surf Club was closed for maintenance that afternoon, so couple quick texts to Brian & we headed down to Myrtlewood.
Hadn't played here in quite a few years, but Brian said he had played there last week & the greens were awesome.
Very busy at the bag drop, esp for the Monday after Easter, but we got off on time & for the first time this trip, we found ourselves waiting between shots, but still got around in about 4 hours.
Course was in great shape...best we've ever seen it. Greens were smooth and a good speed. Some water still being pumped out of fairway bunkers, but to be expected after the rains last Friday.
Palmetto filled the bill perfectly as a last minute fill in to complete our 3rd day in a row of 36/day. Walk in rate was $66.
I tried to post a picture of me & UGP, but kept getting an error message, so I'll leave it to him to add it in a reply.
Nice report Skippy
