Day Five Arizona

Today we headed west to the Sunridge Canyon Golf Course in Fountain Hills. This was a desert golf course and we felt like we were in the desert. It was 100 degrees today with a slight breeze, and I mean slight. Our tee time was at 1 pm, of course the hottest part of the day. We actually did not mind the weather. It really did not feel as if it was that hot out. The course is carved out of a canyon with lots of cactus, native desert plants, elevated greens and tees and lots of trouble if your shot goes astray. This was my second favorite golf course. The course was very challenging, beautiful and fun. It seemed as if we were the only ones on this course today and when I asked the caddy who cleaned my clubs where everyone was he said "maam it's a little too hot for the regulars to come out today." Although our GPS system in our golf cart alerted us to the $39.00 replay special (who in their right mind would play again when it was 100 degrees) we opted to head home to the pool. And that is exactly what I did. I headed out for a swim to cool down and have a few cocktails by the pool before dinner.

Tomorrow..... the Pink Jeep Tour in Sedona.

It was so hot I went bald today!
