(Alert readers will note that the Dreaded Badger lives on hole #6, so we avoided any unpleasant badgerial encounters.)
Report from Cart #23 follows:
Hole #10—bunnies noted in the underbrush.
Cart path between #12 and #13—snake zoomed across the path in front of the other golf cart.
Hole #13—the “blue door” is a local idiomatic expression for the Port-a-Potty. You may have suspected it is a restaurant in another
city, but you would be wrong. New Mexico
Hole #14—we were joined by a herd (5) of antelope. The mama and 4 babies were unconcerned as golf balls whizzed by them as they ambled across the fairway. The papa antelope watched (with some menace, we might add) from the other side of the fence.
Hole # 17—blood sugar dropping. That picture of the green chile cheeseburger on the Riverview score card looking better and better.
Club House—The Grill @ Riverview—We can, in fact, highly recommend the Riverview Burger (aka the green chile cheeseburger).
All in all, a satisfying practice day. A few good shots, a few lousy shots, lots of wildlife, fine cheeseburgers, New Mexico blue sky and sunshine, patient golfer friends. Does it really get any better than this?
