City Park Nine Golf Course – Fort Collins, CO

City Park 9 - #4

Hole #4 – Please respect the gallery to the right!

There is an old song by Louis Prima, “Yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas today”. You need to be using this song as your swing thought for the day. The reason? If you bring your slice to Hole #1, you will be playing from the baseball fields; Hole #3, from the maintenance yard; Hole #4, from the cemetery; Holes #5 & #6, from the street or someone’s front yard.

Cobre Valle Country Club

Funny little man with golf club (or hoe) on entrance sign – prelude of things to come?

I left Pine Meadows Country Club in Overgaard, AZ in my rearview mirror in search of Cobre Valle (not Valley) Country Club. The road (Highway 60) between these two towns is both fun and scary. The “fun” (unless you are pulling a 40ft motor home) are the hills, curves and scenery through the Salt River Canyon. The “scary” are the  Read more →
