The Course at Pettys Park

Entrance to The Course at Petteys Park…aka Bunker Hill Country Club

I’ve passed this course numerous times throughout the years as I cruised I-76 from Denver to Nebraska. I was interested in discovering how this Colorado course had acquired the name of Bunker Hill Golf Course. Boston, MA, I understand; Brush, CO, not so much. Here is what I found out… Read more →

Mount Meadows GC #7

Fairway at Hole #7 – At least it has a nice view!

“Great 9-hole golf, brought the kids out for a great day of golf”. This review was posted one month before I visited this course (please imagine my air-quotes). After finally finding the course, my conclusion about the golfer who posted this was… Read more →

Russell Municipal Golf Course – Russell, KS

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,

Port Townsend GC #7

Chief Chetzemoka stands over Hole #7 and welcomes you to the course.

I entered the hallowed grounds of Port Townsend Golf Club and was greeted by Chief Chetzemoka just as he has welcomed pioneers since 1854. A friend to the white settlers who entered the area many years ago, I was hoping for that friendly experience as I approached the first tee box.  Read more →

Cherokee Golf Course – Louisville, KY #1 – Par 5, 518 yards (white)

“You can’t see the forest for the trees”…Woody; “Hills and Dales”…Ed; “Just too hard for me”…Dave; “Trees and sloping fairways everywhere”…Scott. These quotes should cover everything as you make your way around this track. Probably nothing else you need to know before you attempt to play this 9-hole Louisville municipal course. For those of you who actually know how to play this game… Read more →

Lake Lackawanna Golf Course – Stanhope, NJ

Lake Lackawanna Golf Course #4

Hole #4 – Par 4 , 275 yards. Eagle would look good on the scorecard.

“Look before you hit” the sign says.  Words to heed before you strike your opening shot down the first fairway. Reis Avenue runs parallel and very close to the left side of Hole #1. But if you time it perfectly, the wayward hook can provide quite a bit of extra roll!  Holes #2 and #3 are carbon copy par 3 holes – one of 165 yards and the other 150 yards. Both require Read more →
