Humbled by Druids Glen

My ball is between the water and the bunker!

I’ve been thinking that my golf scores are artificially better because I’m playing so many rounds at Mt. Si.  Familiarity with the course and the relatively easy greens allow me to score well even when I’m not really playing that well.  So I decided to try out Druids Glen golf course just about half an hour south of us.  It sports a 134 Slope Rating compared to just 115 for Mt. Si.  That suggests it’s about 9 strokes harder for a bogie golfer like me.  Lo and behold I shot a 96, exactly 10 strokes over what I’ve been averaging at Mt. Si for the last month or so.  The greens are definitely more challenging and my iron/wedge play was very poor.  I’m going to try Druids Glen again in a week or so.
