Hooked On Golf Blog

This past Friday the Hooked On Golf Blog World Tour made a stop at Rhodes Ranch Golf Club, a short drive southwest of the Las Vegas strip.  I’d been to the property before, but had not had a chance to play it until this visit.  While there I visited my friend Jeff Bricker, assistant pro and former Utah local.

Naturally I shot a ton of photos and I will be posting a course review soon.  First impressions are that the course conditions are so good I’d compare them with Augusta National.  Seriously!  The fairway grass was so perfect and precisely cut, I actually took a photo of it:

Augusta National? Nope. Rhodes Ranch!

enjoyed my round playing on such a finely cared for golf course and the layout was very fun.  If not for two doubles on the card, I would have been close to even par on the day.  I need redemption!

Following the round I powered up my UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) and did some photos and video of the course from above.  I prefer to use the term UAV because “drone” has gotten a bad name.  It isn’t an invasion of privacy and it isn’t going to blow you up.  It is just taking pictures of the golf course!

Rhodes Ranch Photo Gallery

I’m very happy to have gotten some new pictures of Rhodes Ranch. I had some very poor quality, dark images in the Hooked On Golf Blog Rhodes Ranch Gallery, presumably back in the (literal) dark ages when I didn’t know how to take a photo.

I’ve now deleted all the old crappy photos, and put a few new ones up. I’m still processing some of the images, so check back for more later.
