Live blogging Greywalls

Not sure what happened to the rest of my usual foursome. I even sent them an e-mail with the tee-time and detailed directions:
mw,
I can't play Palo Alto but will play Greywalls if somebody else will drive. Hope you have an early tee time so we can make it back home before dark.

Thanks, Rick. I can't play Saturday, but I did get us an 8:00 AM Tuesday tee time at Greywalls - selected by Golf Week as one of the top 100 course in the country. There are 3 spots available. I've included directions from Rick's place. It is a little out of the way from there, but it'll be easy for you guys to hook up and park and drive together. I know it is a work day, but you do not want to miss playing this course. - mw
