The first 9 holes of Discovery Bay GC were built in 1925. The course is owned today by Mike Asmundson, who designed the back 9 in 1996, and has done some changes to the front. He also did a redesign of Las Colinas, and lives in Scottsdale, says the Internet. But, he also seems to have been a local here. As you can see in this story, the course has had some financial troubles. The 2007 plans for a residential development never came to fruition.
I played the front 9 with two of the members. He had been playing there since 1947, and she was chair of the Rules committee. He complained about a poor lie one time, and she commented on the recent rains. I said he didn't want to hear about the rain, he wanted her to say "Don't worry, honey just move it." That's when she told me she was the Rules Chairperson.
I see this guy on Facebook all the time, he must have played here once
There was an interesting tree
I expected more scenic vistas of the bay, but there were only a couple
And the obligatory (it's starting to seem like) tree in the middle of the fairway. Most of them are just a nuisance, but this one is so tall and wide that it blocks the whole fairway, so the only strategy is to hit your drive past it, which I was able to do, and made par.
