tierra rejada golf club dealsCourse: Tierra Rejada Golf Club
Date Played: 12/23/2011
Conditions: Sunny, Windy, mid 40′s
Cost: $75 per person including cart
Tee time: 7:24am
Pace of Play: Under 4 Hours

Designer: Bob Cupp
Par: 72 (7017 yards from back tees)
Condition of Tee Boxes: 6/10
Condition of Fairways: 6/10
Condition of Greens: 8/10

Course Review:
For a beginner like me, Tierra Rejada was certainly a challenging course to play. The greens were more undulated than the average course and fairways narrower.  There are plenty of fun holes on this course, including their scenic #8 hole (Par-4).

The main downside of Tierra Rejada was that the condition of the course left a lot to be desired, especially tee box and fairway conditions. The driving range was under repair, which forced us to hit off their old, flat & hardened mats.  For the price, I think there are plenty of other courses that offer better conditions within a 10 mile radius.

Nov 212011

As a husband and father of two little boys (and with parents that are more fanatical about golf than me), my hope is that I am an easy person to shop for this Christmas. That being said, I’m sure I (like many of you out there) will inevitably be on the receiving end to well intended but totally useless golf gifts. I hope this list helps you shop wisely and practically for your favorite golfer this Christmas.

As a golfer with a high handicap that gets out 1-2x per week, here are the Top 10 gifts I would love to receive this Christmas:

1. Everyday Golf Apparel (polo shirt, shorts, pants)
Cost: $10-50
It is easy to find deals on known brand apparel with moisture wicking fabric (ie. Adidas, Nike). Don’t try to dress your golfer in orange Puma pants (unless he can pull it off)!

2. Golf Balls
Cost: $10-40
Someone famous once said “You never own golf balls. They’re just on lease.” All golfer lose golf balls. Therefore, you can never go wrong with a box of new Pro V1s or Pentas.

3. Golf Hats

Cost: $10-30
Most golfers wear hats. Don’t let your favorite golfer go out in an old, dingy, sweat-stained hat.

4. Golf socks (yes, socks)
Cost: $5-25
Whether your golfer walks or rides carts, comfortable golf socks with the right amount of padding and support goes a long way.

5. Golf bag (cart or stand)
Cost: $40-200
A golf bag is one of those items that golfers buy once (or twice) and just stick with what they have. Bag technology evolves slowly but enough to warrant an upgrade every few years. A basic rule of thumb: lighter is better, as are more individual slots.

6. Compression Shirts

Cost: $20-50
Compression shirts serve as a great way to layer on when the weather gets a little chilly when jackets tend to be a little bulky and wind shirts may not provide enough warmth. Under Armour and Nike
are two popular brands.

7. Divot repair tool
Cost: $10-30
Fixing divots is a golfer’s way of giving back (or some see it as earning good karma). Find one that is sturdy and has good reviews. Avoid gimmicky, flimsy, bulky or overly pricey as these types of divot tools will simply sit and collect dust.

8. Belt
Cost: $20-50
Little known fact: professional golfers wear cool belts. Most are designed by Nike, Adidas, PING and Puma and can be had for under $50.

9. Cold Weather Gear
Cost: $20-100
Specifics depend on your region, ranging from light wind shirts to full blown heavy-duty golf cart covers.

10. A round of golf with the guys
Cost: $0-100
Playing a leisurely round of weekend golf typically takes 5-7 hours (up to 8 hours with travel time). For guys like me, teeing off at 6am shaves that down to about 3-4 hours away from home after the kids wake up. A couple of free “passes” to play without rushing home… that would be priceless. GolfNow.com’s List of Top 100 Public Courses is a great resource if you choose to give your golfer a pass AND a round of golf!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
