We lived in this area most of our lives together
The hills – rolling meadows
the lush greenery and yes snow.
But we also belonged to the Bona’s Golf Course!
Situated right next to the very large cemetery
and right across the highway from the University –
sits a nine hole course where we attempted to play golf
sometimes twice a week!
There are special holes here I remember
one is at the tee box of number FIVE
where you are up on a knoll
looking down but out across the trees to the campus
and the hills in many colors of the fall.
Just a beautiful peaceful view.
And then number SIX
where I recorded my only HOLE IN ONE!
The beauty of the course in all seasons
well – in my thought – not SNOW! LOL
But people cross country ski here in the winter.
And now – a brand new clubhouse built overlooking the course
in the exact same place as the old one
which I all the time hit!
The old club house held many memories
of dinners – events and celebrations for us to remember.
But now – it is brand new
offering a view of numbers one – two and three.
And in the splendor of the fall foliage
The last time we were there
the course was in excellent shape
and I still see the views in my mind.
The course can be challenging
and sort of lulls you to wonderment of the views.
Number SEVEN – very hard to hold the green
if you are short it will roll 75 yards back down the slope
too far and you are in a steep back with 12 in rough!
In its splendor – lush green – views for miles.
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
If you are ever in Western New York –
about 65 miles South of Buffalo and you play golf
Just across the road from Saint Bonaventure University
sits a nine hole course we learned to play together
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY
FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!
