Today we played Highland Springs in Wellsburg, West Virginia, about a 50 minute drive from my house. This is a golf course that I played some as a teenager and young adult and have played it a few times since moving to Pittsburgh. It is a course that has gone through some hard times but has managed to keep on going and today the course was in very good shape with the greens running 5.5 on the stimpmeter and were very smooth. The course is 6800 yards from the tips, a little hilly with fairly wide open fairways, that were in good shape. This golf course is real enjoyable to play and is definitely worth the trip. One unique thing about this course is it has about 6 holes in Pennsylvania and the other 12 holes are in West Virginia. The hot dog at the turn was very good with the condiments being quite tastey. The price was right here also, 23 bucks with a cart and the dog and the can of pepsi 2.50. If you live in the South Hills of Pittsburgh you should give this course a try, you will not be disappointed. Yours truly had one of his better days on the course in a long time. Even with some shaky putting I rattled off a 75 and hit some really good shots with nary a real bad one in the lot. Pete shot 82 and Donna had a 91 with the course being a little long for her. I really can’t explain the good round but we will see if the trend continues, or was this just some kind of cosmic blip. If I had been chipping and putting just a little bit better this could have easily been my best round of the year but it still was a very satisfying day. Thirty three down with 57 to go.
