Saturday and the Bountiful Ridge Golf Course

Since my kid brother Jeremy couldn't drive to Twin Falls on Saturday to go cliff diving with us, Junior and I drove down to Bountiful Utah to play the Bountiful Ridge Golf Course. Bountiful Ridge sits high up on the hill in Bountiful with spectacular panoramic views of the area. This course was featured in the Microsoft video golf game "Links" and having played that many times I was happy to play the course in real life. Joining us was my old friend, Matt Elliott.

I was surprised at the beauty of the course. Equally I was surprised at how difficult the course played as every shot (other than tee shots) seemed to be either uphill, downhill or sidehill. I ended up shooting an 84 but it felt like 100.

Nice picture here. If you click to enlarge you will see 6 or so other deer lying in the shade off to the right

I'm really bummed I wasn't able to go to Twin Falls.

On the other hand, those pictures are amazing!! I love the green grass in those pics. That is a very pretty course. Complete with deer roaming around. Awesome.

I would be a little frightened of the buck just hanging out there in the thicket. That's usually where my drives usually end up.
