Golfing in the Desert

Yesterday Senor Ping and I tried out a new golf course in Yuma. Las Barrancas is an 18 hole course in the foothills. They have putting and chipping greens and a driving range that is included in the price of 18 holes. We played as a threesome with a fellow Canadian who was familiar with the course. We really appreciated his tips and advice. The view was spectacular and it was quite an experience. Prior to yesterday we had played 3 rounds at the golf course in our park. That course is like golfing in a pasture and I think the greens are comparable to putting in our backyard. At Las Barrancas we were faced with all kinds of challenges including ravines, cliffs, water and GPS on the golf cart. And very fast undulating greens. We will definitely play this course again.

We loved that course. Another great course is Mesa Del Sol, near to where you are. Any pictures of the shaved Abbey?
