Tuxedo Golf Course

Four of us played the Tuxedo Golf Course today, and for the most part, it's one course that I have avoided playing this year. One of my golfing friends mentioned that the greens were in bad shape. Today, however, the greens were fine. Usually, they don't bite well, but they did today, due to all the rain.

It rained last night and most drives didn't roll very far. Approach shots with the wedge took larger than normal divots. From 150 yards, you had to shoot one or two clubs extra to ensure that you could get to the green.

By and large, this conveniently located course is not kept in superb shape, but when it's dry, you can easily shoot under 100 and stand a good chance of breaking 90.

To book a tee off time, you can use their automated phone system. You pick the time you want and the system tells you what the closet time is that is available.

I'll always play Tuxedo. The best thing that it has going for it is location, across from Assiniboine Park and not too far from where I live.
