Wife and I had our wedding reception at the hotel del... it was great.
Great story about that golf course (kind of)... a good friend of mine used to play there 3 or 4 times a week... one day after playing he was driving home over the bridge and a car stopped near the middle of the bridge and the driver got out. My friend (a doctor) thought... oh crap, a jumper...
So he accelerates to the guys car, slams on the brakes skidding to a stop, and starts to jump out of his car to try to stop the guy.
Instead, the guy opened the trunk, pulled out his golf bag complete with clubs, and threw them over the side.
Pretty stupid really because there are always boats going under that bridge... but still funny.
lol....what was the name of that course??...probably 15 or 20 yrs....i still remember the 3's were nice looking holes with a nice shot to me eye
i played at a niklaus course there also...is there a course around there called Northbay or other...i know i played a niklaus layout in sandiego.nice course...but niklaus goes wildover them damned long assed waste bunkers...uggghhh
It's called Coronado Municipal Golf course.
Not sure about a course called North Bay, never heard of that. There is Pelican Bay a little north in Orange County.
If you ever go to Vegas, play Bears Best. It's a collection of Nicolaus' favorite holes from courses he has designed, all put together in one course.
A couple holes have sandtraps made from slag from copper mines instead of sand. It's black, and looks like a course sand, but it's VERY firm... ball will bounce on it, but when you hit the ball it feels like a fluffy greenside sand bunker shot. Because it's so firm, you NEVER get a buried lie. It's really weird stuff.
