Casper Municipal Golf Course – Casper, WY

Casper Municipal GC #8

Hole #8 – Par 3, 215 yards (blue)

I had to be stealth as I crossed the border. As a Colorado State University supporter and the husband of an alumni, I was now entering the territory of the Wyoming Cowboys. We are now in possession of the Bronze Boot as the 45-31 winner of the Border War football game of 2014 and I know they will be seeking revenge for that beating. The green license plates with the white mountain peaks may give me away as a Colorado resident, but they were probably just a blur now as I pushed the new 80 mph speed limit on I-25.  Once you are past Cheyenne, there is only wide open space to admire, so my eyes drifted to the back of my hands and I started to wonder…when the heck I turned into my grandfather! But I digress…

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 →

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. Bottom line – don’t bring your banana slice to City Park Nine. Read more →

Hole #6 - UNM - North Course

UNM – North Course – Hole #6 – Par 4, 393 yards

Steve almost nailed Pete (former NM Senator) and Nancy Domenici with his first shot of the day. The fence guarding the left side of the fairway at Hole #1 saved him from certain embarrassment and a possible lawsuit. Not the way you want to start your first round in five years. Read more →
