Fun times at Olivas yesterday and an impressive performance by the out-of-towner with a nice 73 that easily could've been a few better.


Great meeting you, John!

Just finished Pelican Hill South after seeing the Dodgers last night. The Dodgers game may be the longest walk in golf. My habit of not watching a game I am attending is not unfamiliar to my fellow ďresidentsĒ.


As I dive deep into beach culture I am learning one indisputable truth. A beach is never just a beach. Pelican Hill once again seems to have been molded for those who use it. A perfect blend of luxury and exhilaration. Makes you want to put on your pretty pants and dance. Loved it.

The first hole I ever played with John everybody in the group made birdie.

I wish that upon everyone who gets the opportunity to repeat.

Impressive place. I live 10 minutes away and have to pinch myself, as compared to where I started in life.


I'm a little surprised you loved the golf course. I like it enough, don't love it (not a big fan of the North)- but despite the proximity I rarely play there.

John,


With your love of TPS and now Pelican Hill, are you going to take a day and get up to Sandpiper before Doak does a Joan Rivers to it?

I wish I had seen Bel-Air before Doak. The ignorance of the negative reviews of Sandpiper has influenced my love of it sight unseen. No doubt Iíd be equally ignorant in my praise. Wouldnít say no but north of Santa Barbara is LA light at best.

Iíve been invited to join Dave Ober at Victoria Club in Riverside tomorrow at noon. As part of my fulfillment is Daveís request to bring along a couple of GCAers. First come first serve. Let me know.


You will see shots that you ainít never seen. I played Victoria yesterday with Dave. Itís like playing Riviera on the south side of Chicago with longtime friends. Best BLT I ever had.

Had a BLAST with John on Wednesday at Victoria. The guy can golf his ball! We played as a foursome (with one walker) in 2 hours 40 minutes, and I think he was a bit ... ahem ... surprised by the pace of play. Don't think he brought his best game. Still managed to shoot his handicap. Would hate to play him in a money match giving him full pops, I'll tell you that for sure!

Thanks. It took Andy 19 years after he got his hammer. The execution of an escape isnít always the result of good planing. Iíll keep in touch cause I got no plans.


That said. Iíll always owe the people of California for their stewardship of this taste of nature and culture. Oh, thanks for leaving the HOV lanes open for me. Makes Uber feel like getting a comped caddie.

The people want to know, are you posting scores for your handicap index or just enjoying the california dreaming' vibe?

Land in LA tomorrow for as long as ďitĒ takes. Please golf with me. Anywhere, anytime.


Last dude, Laz, that took me up on a similar plea got a hole in one during our round. Why not you?


Iíve packed slacks.


I was hosted today by a fine fellow. While he didnít have a hole in one, two of his friends did. The first was a 298 yd par 4. The second a 200 yd par 3. If you would like one yourself, just call.

Woah!  That is epic. An hole in one on a par 4 is so rare and to have another guy get a hole in one for the same group.  Send that in to Golf mag or Golf Digest as that is worthy of a write up.

If there is such thing as a hidden gem, or at least a shadowed gem, Behr's Victoria is one!  Get past that first hole and it's psycho fun.  That 15th green was once audaciously defended by a wall of fronting trees.  Never seen anything like it.  It's been 20 years since I was there - is this still true?
