Golf memories

The back nine of PGA West Palmer Course, which we played first contains some very scenic holes that criss-cross over an irrigation canal and are bordered by the mountain on the right. Larry hit the rocks on this par three 120 yard hole and bounded into the water, I hit the gourse and found my ball.... amazing and against the warning that their were diamondback rattlers in those rocks. As a former caddie and broke kid I just love finding and using someone elses lost ball, and then promptly losing them again.

We saw hole 2 on the Nicklaus course which contains a huge rock blocking the approach to the green that must be crossed. That hole was featured in several skins games, also the hole that Lee Trevino aced one year.

This plaque commemorates Duvals 59. Richard, playing with us, does not lay up, and he hit a 235 yard 3 wood to within 10ft of the pin, all over water. He plays a game I am unfamiliar with.

Palm Springs is a golfer's mecca, I am coming back.
