The North Scottsdale Trail

The first day of my recent Arizona trip found me playing 36 holes. I played Desert Mountain (Cochise) in the morning and then played an afternoon round at Quintero Golf Club with a group from I had already played Quintero before, so I am not going to it review it again this time around....

Course Review: Andalusia Country Club

On Thursday, I attended the SCGA member outing at Andalusia Country Club. It is also known as Andalusia at Coral Mountain, which is the name of the high-end residential community in which the course/club is situated. This was the first stop on the SCGA's annual Bob Hope Trail, though it was the only round I... Continue Reading →

Warming Up in Vegas

I just got home from a quick three-day trip to Southern Nevada/Northwest Arizona.

August in Vegas, Day 1

August isn’t necessarily the best time to visit Las Vegas. Obviously, it can be dreadfully hot in the late summer. The weather can also be a bit unpredictable with occasional thunderstorms in the forecast. Flooding can even happen when a freak rain deluge comes through unexpectedly. The other concern this time of year is the... Continue Reading →

Course Review: The Santaluz Club

On Monday, I had a chance to play The Santaluz Club down in San Diego as part of an SCGA member outing. It was a pretty small group this time, so it worked out nicely. I guess there was some major traffic on one of the routes in (thankfully not mine), so people were running... Continue Reading →
