Our son John came home for the weekend to play in a 3-person golf tournament with us that benefits a local free medical clinic. On Saturday it poured rain and the wind howled so hard we couldn't keep our umbrellas up! The day was so uncomfortable that we didn't score very well. But Sunday was warmer and calmer, which allowed us to shoot 10 strokes better than the day before. We didn't win, but we had a really fun time with John at Big Creek [bigcreekgolf.com]! (The opening website photo is our back yard view.)

Big Creek is usually just a small stream, but this weekend, it was flowing!

This is not a lake, it's a sand trap!

Water was standing on all the fairways and cart paths

Another sand trap filled with water

Full to overflowing!

Larry, me and John on #6

Smart , smart , smart lovely portrait of you three N's and the course is so well kept I'm sure the rain will have done it the world of good.

What a fun weekend with John! We did a lot better the second day when the weather dried out.
