Have you ever met a Leprechaun who led you to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? If so, please give me a call – we need to talk. Have you ever thought Siri was leading you down the wrong road as you searched for a destination? Today Siri guided us through a neighborhood and at the end of the road we found

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 →

Crescent Hill Golf Course – Louisville, KY

Crescent Hill GC #3

Hole #9 – Par 4, 377 yards – Dave, way to finish your round with a birdie!

If we keep playing the Louisville Metro Parks Golf Courses we may need to invest in a pair of those “new-fangled” high top golf shoes. How would three (we lost Woody somewhere along the way) old geezers look in those and a pair of sleek golf pants? “The course has no water hazards and no bunkers, making it a perfect course for both the novice and experienced golfers”…per the course website.

Hole #1 on the Crescent Hill Golf Course is a wide-open, straight par 5 that plays 493 yards from the white tees. This is a nice, easy warmup hole to get your round started. So why did we card a 6, 7, and 8 to start our round? Duffers! Sorry, I’m not sure I can go on. Read more →

Cherokee Golf Course #1

Hole #1 – Most of the course looks like this.

“You can’t see the forest for the trees”…Woody; “Hills and Dales”…Ed; “Just too hard for me”…Dave; “Trees and sloping fairways everywhere”…Scott. These quotes should cover everything as you make your way around this track. Probably nothing else you need to know before you attempt to play this 9-hole Louisville municipal course. For those of you who actually know how to play this game… Read more →

Lake Lackawanna Golf Course – Stanhope, NJ

Lake Lackawanna Golf Course #4

Hole #4 – Par 4 , 275 yards. Eagle would look good on the scorecard.

“Look before you hit” the sign says.  Words to heed before you strike your opening shot down the first fairway. Reis Avenue runs parallel and very close to the left side of Hole #1. But if you time it perfectly, the wayward hook can provide quite a bit of extra roll!  Holes #2 and #3 are carbon copy par 3 holes – one of 165 yards and the other 150 yards. Both require Read more →

Skyway Golf Course – Clubhouse view

Don’t judge a book by its cover. First impressions can be very deceiving. Remember these words as you turn onto Duncan Avenue and start to dodge all the semi’s delivering their goods to the warehouses along this strip. I was starting to wonder if Siri was playing a joke on us because there was no way there was a beautiful course down this street. So when Siri said, “you have arrived, the destination is on the left”, Lincoln Park West and the Pulaski Skyway loomed before us. The course was
