I put in 677 miles behind the wheel today, from Albuquerque, NM to Barstow, CA. But not before crossing the final course off my Albuquerque bucket list: Brent Baca Memorial.
I have tried to play that course twice before. The first time, I rumbled into Albuquerque a little too late in the day, and I knew I would not have enough daylight to play it. And the second time, I spent twenty minutes trying to find it…with no luck. But today, thanks to the help of UDisc, I finally got to find and play my final course in Albuquerque.
That course has some teeth! Baskets perched precariously close to “cliffs.” Lots of man-made obstacles to navigate. The wind was howling this morning too, so I thought coming out of that (approximately) 7,000-foot 18-Hole course with a score of 56 was pretty darned solid. One of my best rounds so far in 2018.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. I had all but given up ever finding and playing that course, as it is not often I am in New Mexico. So thanks again to UDisc for getting me there this morning.
