I said to my son in law –
“Sherry made tee times – 4:00 PM. Do you and Tammy want to play”?
And so it was – as we get ever so closer to leaving –
We went to Algonkian Golf Course –
among the deer once more!
We discovered this course last year after living here for 21 years!
Only by accident as the kids went together and bought us gift cards
to golf at the County Golf Courses!
There are three of them – and we had played the Brambleton Coures
just a mile from our home.
The other one was a good hour away
but this one was 30 minutes away and near our church.
They said yes – and we went on Monday afternoon – labor day!
It was not crazy busy – and we actually got to tee off early.
What a fun time – Sherry said she loves this course.
This was our third time to play it.
Once last year with Buck and Cindy –
then a couple weeks ago with Jayson and Ginger
and this time with Tammy and Marcus.
This course is a regular links course – but very flat –
trees everywhere – and narrow fairways – and “DEER”!
They are very tame and are in packs –
They are laying down or just in the high weeds.
They are by the greens or tee boxes.
They are not afraid and this whole area is a public park.
There is a walking path that runs right through the golf course
with hundreds of people walking – running or biking.
We both seem to play well here – as the fairways are very narrow
but run right next to the next fairway –
separated by dozens of mature trees!
Each tee box has five different tee’s.
If you hit the ball short and straight
you tend not to get into trouble
I have slowed my swing down
and found that I am mostly down the middle some
175 to 200 yards.
Sherry is consistent – 125 to 150 yards.
If I line her up correctly she hits where she is aiming!
Being in control is where it is at for us in golf!
Soon – I am hoping when we go South
We shall once again join up with our old friends to golf.
After all – we have been doing this for years and years.
But ALGONKIAN GOLF COURSE will always have a soft spot in my heart.
Just like back home in NWPA Kane Golf Course has a place.
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
