Michael Block Sets A New Course Record With A 59

Just call him Mr. 59. Arroyo Trabuco Head Golf Professional Michael Block carded one of golf’s sacred numbers in June – on his birthday, no less – to set a new course record with a 59. He’d shot the previous course record of 62 five times.

In this video, Block recalls his record round and shares the highlights, including getting up a down out of a bunker on No. 18 to break 60. Congratulations, Michael!

How’d he do it? Check out his scorecard:

 

Kinda makes you want to get out there and break your personal best…

Five Great Reasons To Play Arroyo Trabuco This April

One of the wettest winters Orange County has seen in years has left behind a feast for the senses and sights to behold as you get out to explore and enjoy our course this spring. Here are five great reasons to get out and play our course right now.

The Hills Are Alive

Our hillsides are simply stunning right now as brilliant splashes of yellow have brought uncommon amounts of color to the canyon. The elevation changes at our course provide several vantage points to appreciate these unique views and let you enjoy one of the most colorful springs we’ve ever seen!

Our Greens Are Pristine

Our greens are rolling just the way you like them – pure and just a touch quick and slick. Bring your putting A game and go for birdie or better!

Pin Flags

We upgraded our pin flags this spring to black flags with a gold leaf. The new look has proved a perfect pairing with the sights of spring as the leaf is accented on many holes by brilliant yellow backdrops! Come see for yourself! And bring your smart phone for a pin flag selfie!

Spring Has Sprung

Even after the color on the hillsides has subsided, there will be still be sights of spring to enjoy as our property rounds into its peak! Come enjoy golf or lunch on the patio – or both! – and bask in the beauty of the season.

Breakfast Ball

Did you know same-day golfers get a discount on our award-winning Sunday brunch? For $20.95, enjoy our champagne brunch before you hit the course. We can’t think of a better pairing to enjoy our Sunday! Cheers to spring!

USGA New Rules for 2019

Golf ushered in a new set of rules changes on Jan. 1, 2019. The rule allowing the flagstick to be left in while putting is getting the most attention, but the changes (all largely designed to speed up play) go well beyond that. How familiar are you with the changes?

In this video, avid golfer Bob Lasken provides a great summary of the new rules. Watch it and you’ll be in the know for your next round with us!

Thank you, Bob!
