36 golfers made the trek to Asheboro, NC on Saturday, May 23rd to play the Tot Hill Farm Golf Club.
Mike Strantz is one of the most unique and polarizing course designers that ever lived, and Tot Hill Farm is no exception. A former rock quarry which left the land scattered with boulders and vastly intriguing elevation changes with landing areas contouring through the former mining grounds.
Standing on these tee-boxes, you can see that this is FAR from your average course
The round came down to a Scorecard Playoff with two golfers tying for 1st-Net with a -2, 70!
Congratulations to Dave Mills on todays win on such a tough course.
Back-to-back birdies on 2 & 3 started the round strong, and course knowledge provided great help!
