Hot, Sultry Golf Saturday

Compass Pointe East Course Hole 1
July 15, 2017
I made it to Compass Pointe golf course this morning and enjoyed a round in the near 100 percent humidity. The dew on the grass was heavy at 7AM and the greens were slow, but we had a great time smacking the small white ball around the course.

At one point we also enjoyed a passing rainstorm that cooled the temperatures but helped to keep the humidity at near 100 percent. 

On the longest hole of the day, which was the 17 hole we played, the rain drenched us and soured my spirits for a while. The hole is a long par 5 at 585 yards from the white tees. Hitting from the wet fairways was not a lot of fun, but I got to use my rain gear. 

When the sun returned, the humidity returned to 100 percent.

I didn't play very well, but it was fun being out on the course.
