I challenged The Rock today. The Rock won. It always does. SilverRock is one tough mother of a course! It is a beautiful course with lush grass, wide fairways, and monster sand traps. It’s like Mission Impossible.
Let’s go golfing.
Hole #1, par 4. The green is well protected on the right by water and on the left by massive sand traps. You have to go around to the left or you could go for it. But you risk getting into the trap or the water.
Here is a par 5. I am positioned to take my third shot, so you can see how long it is. There are some workers and a green tractor in the near bunker. You have to hit up the fairway to the right, then angle left to the green.
Another par 5. On this hole, you have to lay up your second shot so you can hit your third shot over the river. And even then it will take you two shots to get to the green. There are huge sand traps to avoid. My third shot bounced off that rock right of the bridge and backward into the water. But because it hit the other side, I could take my drop over there.
I think maybe this is the last time I play this course. It’s just too challenging and I don’t have a need to knock myself out. Plus, it was 98 degrees out there.
