North Palm Beach CC

I played a round on Saturday, Jan 29th sharing a cart with Uncle Benny Martin at North Palm. As I have heard, Mr. Nicklaus made the greens virtually unplayable for the average player. Several approach shots and putts that normally would be within 5 feet settled off the green. The layout was very agreeable, but the greens were silly at times.
Earl Peacock played with us and scored 2 birdies reduced to eagles and scored a skin.  Uncle Benny won $25 in the Quota game.
I also played The Rookery at Marco with Paul Dixon and his friend Dennis. I started out with 3 pars in the first 4 holes before I started dropping a dozen balls in the ponds that surrounded 16 of the 18 holes. Great layout, but I prefer playing PCC. We played the blue tees where the course rating is 73.3 and slope is 141. The black tees has a course rating of 75.2 and slope of 145 and measures 7152 yards!
