March 22, 2017

Hole #1 – Par 4, 386 yards

The journey of the Springfield “kids” continues…if you are studying a map of Kansas, you are probably thinking – why Russell? Here are a few reasons we stopped: It’s only about 1 1/2 hours south of the geographical center of the US; it’s on I-70, thus an extension of the I-70, Eastern Colorado Small Town Golf Trail; it has a 9-hole golf course; I have a nephew named Russell; and probably the main reason,

Greetings from Mosswood Meadows Golf Course

Springfield, IL – this is where the story begins – please bear with me. They kept getting it wrong. The signs around town stated, “Welcome to Springfield” – not one correctly phrased… 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 →
