Haggin Oaks

This last weekend was a runner-up tournament to the Women's Club Championship and it was a good test of the status of my game. My driving and iron shots were great, but my short game including bunker play showed me that I needed to do some work on them. I practiced my putting before I got out there because I knew that the greens would be a lot faster than what I am normally use to, but because of the fires in Sacramento, Haggin Oaks has been saturating the course and greens in order to keep them alive. For whatever reason, I could not get this through my thick skull and I would always leave my long puts short and forced myself to have eight footer for par. Not the ideal situation you want to have, but as long as I made them, then I was happy. At the end of the day I was overall happy with the result so I stuck around to see what the other players in my flight shot. I am happy to say that I was driving home with a big smile on my face and a wonderful trophy in the passengers seat. I was lucky enough to shoot an 89 and win in a scorecard playoff! Ever since Thunder Valley Casino became the title sponsor of the tour we got really cool new trophies and I just had to have one. I worked hard to sharpen up my game and it paid off and I am so happy to finally win again and accomplish another goal. Up next...The Women's Club Championship!!

Here are some other pictures form the tournament...enjoy!

Here is a picture of my shoe Heaven! (They are all Adidas shoes of course!)
Haggin Oaks is not just a golf course, but a golf complex! You can take lessons there and shop until you drop! They have two stores full of golf related accessories and apparel. I definitely had fun in the Adidas section. (Sorry no picture)

These are the fabulous shoes that I bought! I couldn't resist.

This is a picture of one of the tables in the restaurant/bar area. The tables are covered in old golf magazine articles and pictures.

These last pictures are from a golf tournament that Haggin Oaks holds, I assume every year, called the Golf and Guitars Tournament. They get a few country singers to come out and play golf for charity. I wish I could play in that tournament.
