    Did they introduce any new colors to the golf ball selection?

    They introduced a nice pastel lineup last year but they looked like rotten Easter eggs by Labor Day. I've been urging them to experiment with two-tone because I bet they look super awesome speeding through the loop-the-loop between the giraffe's legs.

    Anyone looking for a beautiful, challenging course in the Seacoast NH/Maine area should check out The Ledges in York Maine.
    Played there this past Sunday afternoon...walked the full 18, playing from the blues which was a good workout! Course has a lot of hills, water....tough track...above my ability level but enjoyed it.

    Course in great shape---much nicer than the only other time I played it about 5 yrs ago.

    Played 3 times last week . Meh, still mired in the mid eighties , shot 18 hole rounds of 84/ 85/ 84 .

    My approach needs work , putting and driving still ok , but i cant seem to "dial in " the approach close to the pin yet , unless i use a very "choked up " 5 hybrid ., the blades are inconsistent

    It will come with more play but until then just have to be patient . Great golf weather here last week tho in the mid to hi 80's

    Finally had a decent round today a 38/40/78 . Conditions are now such we are getting roll and the greens are holding well, so its easier to dial in the approach shot .

    Let me know how it goes at outlook, I might be playing a tournament there later in the summer. I play mostly around the Merrimack valley area in MA, my home course is Long Meadow in Tewksbury.
