One for the Books: A Look at the Course Record at Twin Oaks

      While doing some reporting for a future piece on Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos, I discovered that we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the course record being shot.

Blaire McKeithen carded a 61 last January during Farmers Insurance Open pre-qualifying, which takes place again next week at Twin Oaks.

Anyway, for those who play Twin Oaks regularly, I thought it’d be fun to post the scorecard from the record round, and Twin Oaks Head Golf Professional Troy Ferguson graciously provided it.

Ferguson makes an interesting observation about the record round:

“People look at the yardage (6,535 from the back) and think they can overpower this course, when it’s really a course-management course.  The card for the course record doesn’t have one eagle on it.”

So, for the record, here’s the record:

     That’s a lot of red. Gives us all something to shoot for.
