Hooked On Golf Blog

Greetings from the small town of Española, New Mexico.  I’m staying in the Santa Claran Hotel, just a few minutes from Black Mesa Golf Club.

Black Mesa Hole 4

Signature hole #4 at Black Mesa. Love the cone guarding the green left.

Today was mostly a travel day, but I managed to squeeze 18 holes in on one of my favorite courses in the world.  I made a new friend, John Ehle, a writer from Wisconsin.  We blazed through the course and had a fantastic time.  It is very fun to take someone around the course who has not seen it before.  I sort of rediscover each hole myself.

I was happy with how I played the course today.  After getting up at 4 a.m. and flying to Albuquerque, then driving nearly 100 miles to the course I can’t complain.  The start was shaky, bogey-double. I sucked it up and made 11 straight pars from hole #5 to hole #16.  Played my best ever on the par-3′s, even par.  Hole #8 is a BUGGER, playing at 239 yards.  Solid 3-wood to 10 feet.
