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 →

Teeing off into the mist at Hole #2

35, 34, 32 – depending on the day. Marsh is the key word – depending on the day. A narrow winding road (alley) to get to the course – everyday. Let’s start to break this down. Read more →

Bella Rosa GC #4

Hole #4 – Par 4, 374 yards

This golf writer is a pretty sharp fellow. Bella Rosa Golf Course is one of the closest 9-hole (par 35) facilities to my home and I had never heard of it. Like I said – sharp! Read more →

Cobre Valle Country Club

Funny little man with golf club (or hoe) on entrance sign – prelude of things to come?

I left Pine Meadows Country Club in Overgaard, AZ in my rearview mirror in search of Cobre Valle (not Valley) Country Club. The road (Highway 60) between these two towns is both fun and scary. The “fun” (unless you are pulling a 40ft motor home) are the hills, curves and scenery through the Salt River Canyon. The “scary” are the  Read more →
