he car thermometer read 111 when approaching Callaway Golf Center so we pushed to the right and landed in the parking lot a few yards away from Upper Deck.

It was an easy up and down to the coffee shop for a burger and fries that were definitely among the leaders in the clubhouse. The one negative on our card was deciding to order lemonade. Way too bitter, at least on this day.

However, the gold standard Mountain Dew was available and we pulled out a regulation par.

Callaway is really quite a place for ways to improve your golf game, dress well and grab a healthy meal at under $10, which is Rory McIlroy territory.

At Upper Deck you have a choice of tables with a view of the driving range or the counter with a view of the waitresses. We chose the latter. Again, no bogeys here.

The burger was delivered on one of the softest and tastiest buns we’ve seen in our journeys. The steak fries were excellent and so abundant we had to leave a few for the gallery.

It was really hard to find fault with Upper Deck but, like golf, we can’t always bring our A-game. On another day we might rate UD a perfect 30. We’ll tell Tiger to try it out if he ever decides to visit Vegas again.
