Capitol Hill - Prattville
They have 3 courses here. We played Legislator at 8am, and The Judge at 2pm. Both courses were tough, but the Judge was just plain impossible. We are in the teens on handicap, so we played the orange tees. We probably should have played the whites. Legislator was difficult, but fair. It was a nice looking course, and the staff was pretty friendly except for one ranger who was on our butt to speed up. Not sure why, there weren't that many people on the course. Lunch between courses was great at the clubhouse. We had the buffalo chicken wrap, ruben, and some chili cheese fries. All were awesome. In the afternoon, we hit the Judge. On one of par 5s, the one you have to hit over water on the tee, I had a 13. All other holes weren't that bad. But that one, was a bear. We ate dinner at Dreamland BBQ, but we were not a fan of the ribs. They weren't baby back like we had hoped.
Grand National - Opelika
Here, we played both the Lake and the Links. It was raining slightly all day, but we still had fun. Lunch between courses again was great. Both courses were similar in difficulty, and since it was Easter Sunday, we sort of had the course to ourselves. I lost a lot of balls in the water, but the place was beautiful and well taken care of. The bag guys out front suggested we eat at The Hound, and we agreed. The Hound was a great choice. I had the pepper jelly, wild game sausages, and quail. Great dinner.
Cambrian Ridge - Greenville
Our final day, we played Cambrian. It has 3 nines. We started off on Canyon/Loblolly. Canyon was a bit wet from the previous day's rain, and played tough because it was cart path only. Lots of drives down to a fairway, then hitting back up to the green. I felt like I shot 100 just on that 9. Next was Loblolly, which was an awesome course, and we could take our carts 90 degrees that day, making it even better. Again, the greens were elevated, and it was a tough test of golf. Very scenic though. Probably our favorite 9. We ate lunch in the clubhouse, but they seemed to not have that much traffic as they were out of many things. I wound up just having a burger, which was good. That night, we ate at a cajun place and played pool at a bar.
The whole trip was great, and I can't wait until we can do another one.
