What a great day to skip a conference. What a great day for golf.
The last time I was in New Zealand, I played golf in one of Auckland's top courses, the Gulf Harbour Country Club. It was a breathtaking course overlooking the ocean.
I hope you are enjoying binge watching this season of House Hunters (Semi) International. When we first met TPOL yeas ago, he was on a mission to find an apartment in Mongolia (see House Hunters Ulaanbaatar).
Bored at the Holiday Inn, I opted for a round of golf at the North Sound Golf Club which is next to the hotel. A round of golf can cost well over $150 during the peak season but since it was the off season and since it was after 3PM, I paid the twilight rate of $85 which included club rentals.
Trump National is Bushwood Country Club only Judge Smails is the Donald. Everything about it is over-the-top and gaudy, Emirates style.
It's always nerve-wracking to tee off at a new course. I was even more nervous because I hadn't played golf in months and because the course marshal had put me in a group with two other golfers. Needless to say, the first shot was hooked to the right and lost forever. Hooked it just a little bit.
Scottsdale: home to fun, sun, and golf. It is also home to one of the wackiest golf courses around. The 18 hole Scottsdale Continental Golf Club is located right near my old place in Old Town.
