Red wine is my evening adult beverage of choice. Tonight the lovely lady and I will be toasting the fantastic 2016 Ryder Cup with the official wine of the Ryder Cup, Mouton Cadet. Don’t let all those “unofficial” imposters fool you.

Yes this is the point were I have to lament the struggles and difficulties of running one of the top golf blogs in the universe. Taste testing Ryder Cup themed wine can be very difficult. Not everyone has the skills, perseverance, and mental fortitude to take on and overcome such challenges.

I do it for you, the HOG patron.

Stay tuned for my review of Moutan Cadet Official Ryder Cup wine.

Today has been a little rough. Started out having to blow up a floatie for the pool. Got a little dizzy. After recovering from the floatie thing, the rest of the day went (and has been) great. Here’s today’s office.

Oh on a work/golf related note, they’re expanding here and building a new resort which will feature a Greg Norman course, right next to Diamante. Great area.

Below is a little shot of my table.  I couldn’t help taking a picture.  Everything I need, water, beer, a HOG hat, sunglasses, chips, sunscreen, a towel, and amazing chile sauce which I just got the recipe for.  Chile Arbol.

HOG World Tour Visits Salt Lake Country Club

The latest terrific course visited in the HOG World Tour is The Country Club (of Salt Lake City).  The Country Club is an 18-hole private golf and country club located in the heart of the Salt Lake Valley.  SLCC is known for its great location, course architecture, tons of bunkers (ugh), and very high quality and conditioned golf holes.

The hole above is the beautiful and very tough par-4 11th. It looks very Augusta-esque, hints of the 13th at Augusta National Golf Club.

Above is a panoramic shot showing one of the many incredible views of the “Wasatch Front” mountains, which are seen from most of the holes.

And speaking of great views, here’s a drone shot I captured of the course a couple of years ago.

I had a great time and struck the ball well. One problem I had was testing out new wedges in rain compacted sand. That was a score wrecker. On non-bunker holes I was even-par on the day. Bunker holes, 7-over. Boo.

From Scotland to French Lick to Spanish Fork, Utah. The HOG World Tour’s latest course visit was the extremely fun Spanish Oaks golf course at the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon, about an hour south of Salt Lake City.

Fall is most definitely here, and we had been getting rain for roughly two days straight. Right as my lads and I reached the first tee the rain stopped, the temps rose, and we loved it. The combination of the lush green grasses with the low clouds on the mountains, with the leaves turning colors… wow.

Spanish Oaks is a very fun course. It’s not long, but it gets quite tight as it progresses. There are some short, risk-reward par-4’s which can reward well executed aggressive shots. I wish I wasn’t so far from this course or I would play it much more often. The greens were great, even after being soaked for two days in the rain.

Somehow I managed to shoot an even par round. Three birdies, three bogeys and the rest pars. What a fun day.
