Today we played course no 27, Fort Cherry which is in McDonald Pa and is about a 30 to 35 minute drive from my house. Fort Cherry is a solid little golf course which plays 6200 yards at the tips and has a par of 70. The first hole is one of the toughest par 4’s in Western Pa. Another first hole that is the toughest hole on the course which I find very strange but it does seem to be a trait of many of the golf courses that we have played so far. Many times the first hole is one of top 4 handicap holes. The greens were running a 5 on stimpmeter and were very smooth. The hot dog at the turn was very good as it had that good snap when you bit into it and was very tasty. This course has been around for a good while and it has always had a good and loyal following. This course has a couple of other unique things about it. There is a motel associated with the course and at one time they used lights so there could be play at night. I am not too sure why this is but it seems worth mentioning. It is also worth mentioning that I had an extremely good ball striking day. Unfortunately it did not equate into a great scoring day because I was hitting it so good that I did not have very good distance control and this cost me. I managed to shoot 78, Pete shot a steady 79 and Donna had a 92. We had very good weather although the first two thirds of the day was very windy. For the first time in about a year I am feeling that I am turning a corner, time will tell. If you live in the area this golf course is worth visiting. It has a nice variety of holes and is in good shape. Twenty seven down and sixty three to go.
