A Golfer's Dream Day
Out and 7 and back at 5, I sit by the pool on our last night in Palm Springs. Today was so special. A friend of a friend got us on the private PGA West Arnold Palmer Signature Course. This was the last round for many years at the Bob Hope Classic. An eagle led to a final round historic 59 for a win for golfer Dave Duval. Lots of skins games were played on these courses over the year.
To top it off, we played it alone, no one leading or following us, so we took our time and heard stories of what happened here and there. It was incredibly hard for me to reach the greens and putt well but it was so much fun. This is also the course featured in Soaring Over California in the scene where you get bombarded by a golf ball. The kids were impressed.
We lunched at the Nicklaus Grill over at the stadium course and saw lots of memorabilia
The whole bunch of us had a blast at Knotts Soak City yesterday riding slides and bouncing in the wave pool. Many moons since we did something that active in the water, I am sore and sunburned. Off to a cooler and overcast San Clemente to watch and listen to the ocean for a few days.
