Today, Always Time for 9 wished our name was Always Time for 18. But before I judge too quickly, let’s review the 9-hole Balboa Park Golf Course. It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Read more →

Crescent Hill Golf Course – Louisville, KY

Crescent Hill GC #3

Hole #9 – Par 4, 377 yards – Dave, way to finish your round with a birdie!

If we keep playing the Louisville Metro Parks Golf Courses we may need to invest in a pair of those “new-fangled” high top golf shoes. How would three (we lost Woody somewhere along the way) old geezers look in those and a pair of sleek golf pants? “The course has no water hazards and no bunkers, making it a perfect course for both the novice and experienced golfers”…per the course website.

Hole #1 on the Crescent Hill Golf Course is a wide-open, straight par 5 that plays 493 yards from the white tees. This is a nice, easy warmup hole to get your round started. So why did we card a 6, 7, and 8 to start our round? Duffers! Sorry, I’m not sure I can go on. Read more →

Hole #3 – Par 4, 415 yards. Rocky Mountains in the background.

Driving north on I-25 in Fort Collins you encounter a Budweiser plant to the west and Mountain Vista Golf Course to the east. So your first decision of the day – golf in the morning and Budweiser in the afternoon or vice versa? Whichever you choose, it is sure to be a fun day. Read more →

Westgate River Ranch – River Ranch, FL

Westgate River Ranch

Dude Ranch in the middle of Florida

Dude Ranch in the middle of Florida? Being from Colorado, this I need to see. It’s just northwest of Yeehaw Junction. Really – Yeehaw Junction? Westgate River Ranch is about one hour south of Orlando. However, I was coming from Cocoa Beach and it took me about two hours to go the 50+ miles to get there – but I did get to pass through Yeehaw Junction. I won’t bore you here but the website has a great explanation of the history of “Old Florida” and the birthplace of the American Cowboy. You learn something new everyday. Read more →

Glen Lakes Golf Course #2

Hole #2 – Part of the square

This is the true “Circle in the Square” location (and you thought it was in New York). Glen Lakes Golf Course opens with an easy, straight par 4 – score 4. Holes 2, 3, 4, 5 – scores 4, 4, 4, 4. These first five holes play around the perimeter of the property (forming the “square”). Now it’s time to flex your muscles and let the big dog loose as you enter the center of the course and the last four holes. Read more →
