Play 9 more @WhitneyOaks

The @HPTPoker Championship Satellite Day turned in to a golf outing for a number of players invited out to the course by Tyler Patterson. The group gathered out on the clubhouse balcony in between nines for lunch at Pyramid Bar & Grill before shuffling up the pairings and heading out for 9 more. Lon McEachern (below left) used his dog as a caddy throughout the round, while Tyler Patterson was able to hole one from just on the apron over on 7.

Jeremy Smith (above left) only needed one to get out of the sand on three, while Ben Erwin (above right) sized up an 8-footer on 3. Kenna James (below left) somehow managed to send the ball towards his own left knee, and off a golf cart, while Ken Lambert (below right) looks skyward for where his tee shot sailed to.

The father-son duo of Mike (above left) and Jake (above right) Nelson put up some low numbers on the front nine, leaving Matt Boddorf (below left) and Erik Eichman (below right) scrambling.

So, you like the look of Whitney Oaks and the idea of a home on the course appeals to you? Take a look (above) at the house that overlooks both the 9th and 18th greens.

The course is occupied not only by golfers, but there were four deer grazing alongside the 3rd fairway, undisturbed by errant tee shots and missed 4-foot-putts. The clubhouse patio (below) provides a great place to look out over the lake, the fountain, and the 18th green.
