This afternoon we left WWDC early and headed out to Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco for a twilight round. The non-resident rates have been increased significantly since the American Express World Championships were held there in 2005, so we elected to wait until 5pm when the cheaper rates kicked in. We ate at the new clubhouse before the round, where I ordered fish and chips that were hot and fresh.
I was a little rusty out of the gate, but had a chip-in birdie later in the round and finished with an 89. We played the 18th hole in the dark, but did get the round in by hustling at the end and pushing the slower groups in front of us.
I felt like a superstar after the round–the driver our hotel arranged for us arrived right on time in a shiny black Mercedes. He was very polite (calling me “sir” is just too cool) and had bottles of water for us. Great end to a great afternoon of golf.Originally published by DK on June 14, 2007 at 1:29 am
