Like we mentioned last night when we posted the sunset picture from the Blue course, we also played the Red course earlier in the day. Tons of memorable holes on that course too, but the 16th hole here was one of most unique. Par 3 over the lake playing 231 yards into a stiff breeze yesterday, with a long biarritz green (72 yards long!). Jack hit a crappy sliced 4 iron in the right shrubs for a lost ball, while Mike hit a perfectly cut 3 wood that ended 15 feet from the hole. Missed that birdie putt though.
** Review of Blue is the new link in bio ** If you've looked up pics of the Blue course at @streamsongresort, you'll notice tons of them are from the tee to green of the awesome looking par 3 7th hole, but few from the green to the tee. So figured that it's my job to post one of those pics. Awesome course, and the review is the link in bio. Considering I've posted pics from both courses for a while now, time to ask if people out there have a favorite between the two courses or if you like both of them the same amount. Let us know in comments here!
*** New course review post in the profile, guess which course before reading on! *** If you didn't guess, this is the 18th hole at Pinehurst #8. Uphill the entire hole, and legit trouble left and right of the fairway. Some advice, if you miss the fairway a step to the left, check to see if you have a flyer lie so you don't hit a 9 iron 190 yards when the pin is only 150 yards away. Though you can feel free to do that if you can hit that 40 yard pitch shot 3 feet from the hole for a tap in par. #golfonthemind
**New blog post — link in bio, like usual** Incredible shoutout to Tobacco Road Golf Club, the most enjoyable course I've ever played. If I had to pick one course to play the rest of my short life, it would be Tobacco Road. If you want to see a bunch more pics from the course, make sure to follow @tobaccoroadgolf and @stephenson1969. This is the look from the side of the 16th green, a par 4 whose a tee shot was difficult enough to make me nervous.
