Hole #9 – Par 3, 134 yards. “The Ant Hill”

We wanted to play golf on August 21, 2017 but thought the Solar Eclipse would interfere with our day. We decided to drive across the border into Canada so we wouldn’t be bothered by this event.

So this event was not only occurring in the United States? Read more →

Hole#8 – Par 3, 150 yards. Trouble left, right, and long.

Classic cars had been on the agenda for our first day in Michigan. We spent 12 hours eating, drinking, cruising (before drinking), and watching the procession of cars cruise Woodward Avenue during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in the suburban Detroit area. One of the towns on the route is Birmingham and it just happens to have two 9-hole golf course. Couldn’t ask for a better pairing, right? 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,
