It was a fun but tiring week.
There are only a couple of more local courses I am going to hit on B-Day deals this week. I can get almost as good a deal on the lower end courses with different online specials playing whenever I want and when it would be more convenient for me. That is preferable to utilizing a $15 B-day special that is 150 to 200 miles round trip away.
While few other than myself or Sixpex would go to the extreme I did last week, I would definitely encourage everyone on GK to utilize B-Day specials and enjoy/support some of your favorite courses.
Rather than the unknown, I now have a few more options with personal knowledge if I am in the Inland Empire, Orange County or San Diego areas for golf.
Taking into account both layout & current course conditions of the new courses played out of my normal geographic area…
Best course I played during the B-Day week: Crossings at Carlsbad
And finally the below average course I would likely never play again: Shorecliffs.
And all the fairly local courses in my regular rotation that I have either already played B-Day rounds on or will by weeks end, River Ridge Lakes & Vineyard(often), Soule Park (when I can get up to Ojai) and Elkins Ranch (Occasionally), I will continue to work into my regular local rotation.
I personally would like to thank all the courses that offer B-Day incentives. I wonder why more courses do not. Seems like they are missing the boat from a marketing perspective? While Shorecliffs struck out with me, Crossings, Legends and Riverwalk will all definitely get my future business because their B-day specials got me in the door to experience their facilities.
