Golf Players.... What is the toughest course you have played?
Allright golf fans.....
What is the toughest course in the metroplex that you have played?
I played at "The Resort" on Eagle Mountain Lake yesterday morning and it was one of the toughest golf experiences in my life. The course is shorter in distance than most places, but the fairways are thin and the rough is just ridiculous.
I am an average golfer. I shoot in the mid 80's on your average course a little better sometimes on an easy course. Usually play Fossil Creek, Iron Horse, Willow Springs, etc. I am nothing special at golf, but I am definitely not a beginner.
We played from the blue tees seeing as the course was playing so short. The distance was not an issue at all, but man you payed dearly if you missed the fairway. I drove about 5 yards off the fairway on the 1st hole, and it took me 5 minutes to find my ball in the rough. I verified it was my ball, dropped in the rough again, went back to get a club, and when I was walking back to hit my ball I couldn't find it again, lol. Great course, and very, very challenging. I shot a 91 and felt it was the best I have played in a long time. Makes you appreciate the pro golfers that much more. It physically hurt me to swing so hard through that thick rough sometimes.....
It was $45 to play and well worth it, so check it out!
