|The fairway was a little shaggy|
I was still eager to get out to Sharp for the first time this year, so forewarned my foursome - sort of. Stuart, Bob and Rick decided to risk it.
Yes, they are standing in the fairway cabbage on one of the canyon holes. And yes, I said the fairway. Wet and shaggy does not begin to describe the course. At least the banana slugs liked it.
After losing several balls in the fairway, we started playing found balls off the tee, then walked up to drop at the 150 yard marker to play in from there. Greens were in pretty good shape.
Can't complain about the weather though - as sunny, clear and comfortable a day as I've ever seen at Sharp. The course just isn't quite ready to play. Still it was good to get out. "A good walk spoiled" was just a little less good this day. Bob got a birdie on the par 3 8th, and that was the highlight of the round. We did have some good photo ops (with a a hat/tip to Stuart for some of these pics):
