Which came first the chicken or the egg? In the small town of Midwest, WY, they might ask a similar question – which came first the golf course or the oilfield? This 9-hole course is routed through an active oilfield. As you enter their version of Magnolia Lane, a “Welcome” to Salt Creek Country Club sign greets you on the right and a “Caution” sign (Poisonous Gas, Asphyxiant Carbon Dioxide, Hot Fluids, Automatically Starting Equipment, and High Pressure Pipelines) warns you on the left. Seems to be a bit of a contradiction.
Pasture Golf (www.pasturegolf.com) at its “finest”. Salt Creek is a combination of golf (it does have 9 tee boxes & 9 greens); miniature golf (try to avoid the pump jacks & prairie dog holes); and sandy beaches (gravely sand greens).
Double Bogey: If you enjoy dirt tee boxes, sand greens, fairways absent of grass, poisonous gases and hot fluids all for the low cost of $2.00, then take exit 227 off I-25 for a short 6 mile drive to this once in a lifetime experience.
