Here’s to a new chapter in the Dogleg book!
This morning I got a chance to hit the course early with a few friends that were in town. Since time was a factor, we decided upon Legacy Park DGC in Kennesaw (Check out my full review of this course here).
Legacy only has 9 holes so we ended up playing it twice. This a fairly short course with tight fairways that require low straight shots. I’ve maybe played this course 5 or 6 times previously but had never finished under par.
The weather’s in the mid 60s, cool breeze blowing and beautiful leaves falling all around. I love playing DG in the Fall. That already makes for a great day.
My first round I couldn’t keep out of the trees and ended up finishing +4…on a 9 hole course, yea I know. As short a course as it is, it took the three of us maybe 45 min to play. With time to spare, we continued for a second round.
This round I was ON it. Several great drives starting out left me in good positions for birdie attempts. On Hole #5, my drive left me about ~50-60 ft out. I tossed my trusty Leopard high and to the left to play its hyzer. The disc ricocheted off a tree (about 15 ft from the basket) down and into the chains, score! I went on and continued a par streak after that bird. Had a great straight drive on Hole #9 that left a 15-footer for birdie. Sunk it. -3! Not only did I beat my course record, but I just crushed my previous round’s score by 7. It’s a good day in Georgia.
