Tulsa

I grew up in Tulsa. I played McClure when it was still a natural course. Riverside was installed when I was in gradeschool. I remember hating Hakey Creek when it was built as it was so hard.

Anyway, I went home for XMas and got to play some. OMAGAWD!!!! The courses are gorgeous!!! McClure is so well manicured, and Hunter's Park was such a cool course!!

Mainly it was great to meet such great people. I met a few guys on MY LAST DAY!!! I had to drive home and they wanted to play every course in town!!!! SHIT!!! It would have been so much fun.

I wish I could have been throwing like I am now. I spent most of the week trying to figure out how to throw bent arm, weight forward, hips open, etc... It got ugly at time.

I am, most likely going to the PGA Championships at Southern Hills in the summer. I plan to play DG every day.

you won't see much ball golf if you play all of t-towns courses. if you count the whole metro, they have 15 courses I believe. you definatly have to get in red and blackhawk. they are in mohawk park, right next to the zoo. devillio is fun too. mcclure has a little proshop too if you lose anything. lots of twisted flyer stuff.

Did you get a chance to play either of the hawks? In particular, did you play blackhawk?

I do agree, the tulsa courses are very nice. I went to undergrad at Arkansas, and got a chance to play some of the older courses before moving to Iowa. They've got they're shit together down there. for sure.

both of the hawks are great. I've only got to play them twice. black has a good mix of everything. long, short, open, tight, straight, and doglegged. there are also 3 holes that play over and around 2 ponds. it will test most of the shots in you bag, if not all of them. red has a lot more open holes. the front 9 is a great warm up. lots of roc and aviar shots, or take the huge spike shots for fun. the back is a little more technical with 2 almost 900 footers, both with ob running the whole length. the old courses have been upgraded and the new ones are killer. if anyone comes this way, give me a pm and i'll try to make it up there. I'm only a little more than a hour away from t town.

What's the doubles record on the Blackhawk? My partner and I shot -9 (45 ) after Am worlds.
