A Good Walkabout

Seventh green at Davis Municipal Golf Course

09-23-2009

I had the pleasure of playing some fun golf today at Davis Municipal Golf Course.  Steve Pajak, the Sacramento Bee golf reporter, has been running a series where he invites readers to accompany him on a golf outing and play a course he hasn’t played before. Today I was one of the lucky three to get selected to join him. The two other readers who made up our foursome, Terry and Paul, were even more fortunate as they played much better than I did.

Even better, Steve paid for our green fees, so we started out the game already ahead. The course was in very good condition, especially for a little muni track. The course par is 67 and the longest hole is #13, a 476-yard par 5 (the only par 5 hole).  The course seemed to play longer than its 4,953 yards.

It was a great round – everyone was a pleasure to play golf with. Almost everyone scored birdies, well, everyone except me. I was the holder of a few double-bogeys.

Steve finished at 2 over, Terry had the best score of the three readers, and me? I had a fun time.

Thanks again to Steve for inviting us out and treating us to a great day.
