Lakota Canyon Ranch and a hole in one for a Texan
I'll write more tomorrow, but Jim Engh outdid himself (tough to do...I know! But he did), with the amazing Lakota canyon ranch.
Tom Doak wrote that undulation is the soul of the game. Engh did that in spades. I have walked 230 places and I BARELY finished LKR. Its gorgeous. It's got strategic options. It's inexpensive. It has it all, jumoping to the top of my all time list. Just take a cart or caddy cause if you walk it yourself, it is a murderous thing. Run don't walk to this fantastic course and stay for a few days. More to come in a couple days, but meantime...
CONGRATULATIONS to playing partner Dick Kristinik from Houston, TX who incredibly aced the long 17th from a damn near impossible pin placement. (See pic above). The skinny - 204 yards and a 7-metal. The witness was his buddy Baker McAdams, a fellow Lone Star Stater. Dick shot a blazing 78.
Alsdo, happy birthday to Lakota Head Pro John Pallen.
