Back to work this week. Got 6 rounds of golf in. 18 thursday, 36 friday, 36 saturday, 18 sunday and then a 10 hour drive home after the 18 on Sunday.
We had a great time! I shot right around my average (100) for the first three rounds (all stroke play). Our scramble team won the scramble tournament and then my partner and I took 2nd in the alternate shot (we were actually the odds on favorite, he has game and if I'm at least hitting my driver well he has wedge into just about everything that isn't a long par 5). Fortunately for both of us, any semblance of skill left us first thing Sunday AM! We par'd the first hole and immediately followed that with a triple!! It went downhill from there. No big deal though we had a great time together.
I did win the long drive during the alternate shot round (had a few good chances during the other four rounds, just couldn't keep it in the fairway). Did NOT win golden hacker (3rd from the bottom) or any shortest drives.
Normally there are 32 people, this year there were 20 so we were down a dozen folks or so. However we still earned about 2000 for make a wish and the resort we stayed at threw in another 20 bucks a person so we made near 2500 dollars. So just from this little outing the guy running it made about half of what he needed to grant a wish. Him and his wife shoot to earn enough to fill 2 - 3 wishes a year (between this event and others that they try to do). So far they've hit that goal for the last seven years.

This is the view from my balcony. 18th green of the East Course at Gull Lake View. We actually have a tent where we eat dinner/hang out just to the right of that against the villas we stay in.
