Got to play my first round of golf in the new year today and ill tell ya it felt damn good. I play at Trump National D.C. owned by the great Donald Trump and it has undergone some renovations. The course used to be called Lowes Island and it was owned by Chevy Chase Bank. Chevy Chase went bankrupt a few years back and Mr. Trump came in a bought the thing, cause of the views of the Potomac River, for 18 million dollars. Trump owns about 10 other golf resorts all under the name Trump.
So now I have the luxury of playing a Trump course cause my dad got in at a considerably lower price back when it was Lowes Island. Trump has added 700 yards to the championship course, cut down trees that border the river and put a 60 ft water fall up behind the 18th green. All in all I enjoy the new additions especially his taste in waitresses and female management ;)
Anyways, I shot a 39 (only played 9) and the 9 nine holes were a mixture of the River Course and Championship course. They do this in the winter to avoid overplay of some holes. I was driving the ball well and hitting good iron shots but my short game was very rusty and this is something that just takes getting used to. Most of all I just enjoyed being back out on the grass with my friends and shootin the shit.
Tomorrow Im gonna go more in depth on my home course, Trump National D.C.
