Kingham Prairie View Golf Course – Cheyenne, WY

Hole #6 – Par 5, 505 yards. Remember this hole, you will refer to it later.

What the heck is going on??? Why can’t I play this game anymore??? I blew into Cheyenne, WY with my game in excellent shape. I left town with my tail between my legs, searching for answers. The more I thought about my swing, the worse it got. Sound familiar?  Read more →

Fairway Village Golf Club – Vancouver, WA

Hole #1 – Par 4, 316 yards. Is your insurance up to date?

Please don’t slice; don’t hook; don’t hit a house; is insurance paid up? These were my swing thoughts the entire round as I tee’d it up at each hole on the Fairway Village Golf Course. The course is part of a 55+ community and I felt right at home as we met our playing partners. I’m creeping up on 70 but Harold was out there hitting it right down the middle at 89. I just want to be breathing at 89! Read more →

Desert Peaks Golf Club – Madras, OR

So where is it? We couldn’t find it. In a town named Madras, there had to be a store called, “All Things Madras”. During my teenage years in the 1960’s, madras was “in”. I had madras shorts, shirts, and even a madras sport coat. No luck in town, so it’s off to Desert Peaks Golf Club. Maybe I can find a nice madras golf hat at the course.  Read more →

Highlands Golf Club. The entrance with the Pacific Ocean in the distance.

June 6 – D-Day and B-Day. Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Even though my father was not on the beaches of Normandy (he was working on B-24’s in Italy), my thoughts were partially on him and the sacrifices of those brave men. Closer to home, today is Karen’s 60th birthday and my thoughts were also of her sacrifices she has made being married to me for 37 years. Her special gift (to deflect her mind from turning 60) was  Read more →

Hole #1 – Par 4, 310 yards. Nice opening hole with not a soul around.

Washington entertained me to Lincoln. I left the snow and cold of Colorado and arrived at the wind and cold of Nebraska. College Heights Country Club (CHCC) is located on the campus of Doane University. I was welcomed at this semi-private course with opened arms. Correction – no welcome at all! Read more →

Applegate River Golf Club, Grants Pass, OR

You can’t get there from here! That’s how we felt as we tried to travel from Gold Beach, Oregon to Crater Lake National Park. The most dependable route to get there was to drive down Highway 101 into California, then back up to Oregon via Highway 199 into Grants Pass, then on to Crater Lake. You can also take a wagon train through the wilderness of Siskiyou National Forest, which is the more direct and adventurous route. Being the wild and crazy couple we are, we decided to take  Read more →
