We drove on this trip so our first stop on the way down was at the Davis Love III designed Kinderlou Forest Golf Club in Valdosta, Georgia. This former host of a Korn Ferry Tour event is a great tournament venue because of the extremely wide corridors around the course. I was pleasantly surprised by the design. The front nine is wide open and the back nine plays into the trees.

|Capital City Country Club, Par four 13th Hole. One of the best holes in Florida!|
|Panama Country Club, Par three 7th Hole|
|Origins Golf Club, Par three 8th Hole where I made my 2nd Hole In One!|
|Camp Creek Golf Club, Short Par Four 13th Hole|
|Burnt Pine Golf Club, Par five 5th Hole|
|Raven Course at Sandestin, Par three 4th Hole|
|Shark's Tooth Golf Club, Par three 12th Hole|
|Pensacola Country Club, Par three 7th Hole|
|CC of Mobile, Par Five 3rd Hole in foreground, Par four 16th Hole in background|
We broke up the long drive home from Mobile by stopping in Atlanta to check out the new reversible nine hole Bobby Jones golf course designed by the late Bob Cupp. We played the clockwise Magnolia course.

And that's a wrap on my first trip in 2020. Special thanks to my lovely wife for being a trooper and playing in less than ideal conditions. We went all the way to Florida to get up and play every morning in overcast conditions with temperatures in the 40's. She never complained and actually played very well. In five round she made six birdies, the most I have ever seen her make on a golf trip. I can't say this enough, if you give forward tee players proper tees, it always them to have the same opportunities for birdies as lower handicap players!
