Today I played my 200th golf course overall, East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. It was a fine capstone to this little milestone in golf courses. Overall, the course was very good. It was not the finest course I have ever played, but I knew that coming in. A full tour of the course is upcoming as soon as I can get to it.

  1. 3 in a day in winter? That's not easy. Where ya playing?

  2. Salty- I was trying to play RTJ Grand National. I played the Lake course in under 3 hours, walking, then played 4 holes on the Links course before they sounded the lightning alarms. It actually would have been the 2nd time I played 3 courses in a day, I played all 3 at Capitol Hill earlier in January. Rode in a cart for one round, walked the other 2.

  3. The post is really valuable for all readers.
