Holly Shirley is La Ha’s other resident golfer and he knows a thing or two about the game. Holly has been with La Hacienda for 20 years!!! Some of you alumni probably remember him from your first call to La Ha, he is the Inquiry Call Manager. Enjoy his musings on Hole #3 at Scott Shreiner (actual hole pictured).
Number 3 (par 5) is my #1 favorite due to its beauty and playability. This hole would fit on any course in the world. The really good player is able to hit 2 good shots and reach the green in 2 strokes, but one thing is for sure, he has hit his best on both shots. For the rest of us, the hole asks us to think and play within ourselves on each shot, or pay the consequences. The tee shot takes placement. The 2nd shot must be bold or you will leave yourself too far from the green for a comfortable approach. The ever present Quinlan Creek meanders from left to right about hundred yards short of the green and all the way down the right side of the fairway. It then crosses again in front of the tee. You have to remember to think and don’t give up. As far as scores, 5 is a really good score but 6 is not bad at all.
If you have played Scott Schreiner before tell us about your favorite hole. If not, look forward to a fun course and lots of laughs.
We look forward to seeing you June 4, 2011. Bring your smile.
