Water’s Edge Golf Course – Grosse Ile, MI

28 Mar
March 28, 2018

Hole #3 – Par 4, 271 yards. Watch out for those two big trees to the left!

Water’s Edge Golf Course – sounds like a winner, even though the water is the Detroit River. After a drive through downtown Detroit; a walk along the waterfront; and a stop at Hitsville, USA, we made our way to Grosse Ile (pronounced Growz Eel) to give this course the Always Time for 9 test.  Read more →

Red Hawk Golf & Learning Center – Davenport, IA

07 Feb
February 7, 2018

Hole #4 – Par 4, 253 yards. Beware – Water front & back!

I didn’t know what to expect. I had never played a First Tee golf course. Is it only for kids? If it is open to everyone, does it offer diverse lengths of holes? Is it challenging for the better golfer? After speaking with Brant, the head professional, and playing the course, this is what I learned about Red Hawk Golf & Learning Center and The First Tee – Quad Cities.  Read more →

Santa Ana Golf Club – Santa Ana Pueblo, NM

Santa Ana GC, Santa Ana Pueblo, NM. Land of Enchantment!

Standing on the first tee, you find yourself surrounded by the Jemez Mountains to the west, the Sangre de Christos to the north, and the Sandia Mountains loom to the east – welcome to The Land of Enchantment. As Steve and I started our round on the Star Course, it felt more like The Land of Bewitchment.

East Potomac Golf Course (White Course) – Washington, DC

Hole #8 – Par 4, 286 yards. Washington Monument seen from fairway.

We had one full day in Washington, DC. One Always Time for 9 team member had never visited our nation’s capitol. How do we visit Arlington National Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, The White House, U.S. Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, Smithsonian, plus many more and still get in a round of golf? Here is how we accomplished everything in an eight hour time frame… Read more →

Spring Creek Golf Course – Hershey, PA

Spring Creek GC #7

Hole #7 – Love it when you drive the green and putt for eagle.

Today was about golf and chocolate. Golf in the morning and chocolate in the afternoon…and a good day was had by all. For a golfer who worked for both Mars and Nestle companies, it was a little difficult entering the chocolate city of Hershey, PA. Read more →

Fort Steilacoom Golf Course – Lakewood, WA

Ft. Steilacoom GC #9

Hole #9 – Par 4, 260 yards. Dogleg right and Birdie time.

Fort Steilacoom Golf Course reminded me of Chambers Bay. The fairways were brown and firm; the greens were in good shape but a little bumpy; the green fee was $16…I guess that is where the comparisons start to fall short. I was warmly greeted by Tom, a former Colorado resident, and he enlightened me about the course I was about to play.  First thing… Read more →
