You’re right Sir. The prize pool was awesome then. Free car(s), condo, free round trip tickets for holes in ones and real competition from motels & hotels for our stays the next year. The Budweiser Girls roaming the floor for pictures… but the No Tables & eating off of anything flat( mostly trash cans) I do not miss. Sitting around regaling each other of the tales of the day.
My first hole I took a 12 on a par 5 @ Wild Wing- Hummingbird. Hit 2 balls off of first tee into some ungodly pampas grass growing in a bunker. Found second ball hacked out… all after a 4+ hr. delay because of heavy rain the night before on top of that. Ahh the good ole days.
