Temperatures reached 106 degrees in many North Carolina locales this past weekend... but that didn't stop my golf plans. Mill Creek in Mebane was my first course to tackle, and for being as humid and sticky as it was, the course was in great shape and played well. The course surprised me and I surprised myself. Didn't think I could play "HOT GOLF."
The next day, I traveled to Hound Ears Club in mountains, and again, course was in excellent shape. The Watagua River runs through this club at several points, and it breathtakingly beautiful at this time of year. Rolling hillsides with lush green foliage complemented the easy greens and agreeable approaches. I say "easy" and "agreeable"... I must've just had a good golf day.
Sunday we drove 30 miles north of Boone and played RedTail in Mountain City, Tennesee. This course sported a nice layout but played tough on a hot day.
Three days of golf in hot weather... and what the heck, I loved it. It's HOT GOLF. I can't stop.
