I celebrated Thanksgiving the only way I know how: with a little golf road trip. Took the opportunity to play some Southeast CA courses because I had to eventually check them off the list. I started this morning at Barbara Worth. Had a 7:00 tee time through GolfNow for $30. I needed to present my printed out confirmation to get the rate or she would have charged me the full holiday rate. The place was a ghost town, so I went off by myself a few minutes early and finished about 2 hours later.
The course is not in good shape. I didn't expect much, but it was still pretty rough. Fairways a mix of shaggy grass and bare dirt. Rough about the same. The greens were brutal. Very shaggy, bumpy and slow. Oddly enough, the two bunkers I was in had really good sand, but not very well maintained/raked. I believe this course might have closed down at some point (?), so I guess it's good to see them trying to bring it back to life. It just has a long ways to go.
The layout is fine. Nothing too exciting and made less enjoyable by the poor winter conditions. It could be a decent little course if they are able to fix it up more, but I won't hold my breath.
