Well. . . . .we're only 74 days away from the 2013 Tucson Reunion. I wanted to let all the golfers (who replied to the golfing poll last year) know that I met with the golf director and event coordinator at the Westin La Paloma yesterday. We took a drive through the course so they could show me all the improvements that have been taking place on the course. I've mentioned in the past that this is a Troon facility. If you've ever played golf at a Troon facility, you know that this is one of best run/maintained courses nationally. Troon Golf took over the golf course 2+ years ago and have invested $3-$4 million into upgrading the golf facilities and the three (3) 9-hole courses. The greens and fairways are in immaculate shape and the sand trap work has just been completed. We played a few holes to check out the fairway turf and the rolling of the greens. I also "accidentally" hit into a couple of sand traps. All I can say is. . . . .the course is in excellent shape and it is calling our collective names to come out and play!! OH BTW, if I have failed to mention in my previous postings, the golf course is part of the resort so we will NOT be driving all over Thugba looking for the course. You can walk to the pro shop right from your rooms. Or if you truly are storing your energy for the course, you can be driven via golf cart to the course by calling the front desk.
When we polled last year, we had about 60 people respond with a "yay". So, where are all of you? Would love to get all of you registered so I can get all the teams organized. I'm checking the registration list with the "poll" list I made and the current showing is a bit slow. Yellah!!!
Your humble caddie,
