The Goofy Game of Golf Searching for the Answer

Yesterday we went to East Liverpool, Ohio to play 36 holes. We started with Beaver Creek Meadow, which is about an hour and fifteen minute drive from my house. The course plays about 6400 yards from the tips, and greens ran a 5 on the stimp and were in good shape. This course has a great variety of holes has lots of trees and like most courses in this area is relatively flat. All and all a very enjoyable course to play. The hot dog at the turn was very good but won’t crack the top five. We did have a shot of the day at the par 3 16th hole. It is about 145 yds slightly uphill and Pete hit an 8 iron right at the pin and looked pretty close from the tee. It was only one half  inch just to the right of the hole, very close to a hole in one. Pete had a very good round in addition to that spectacular shot by posting a 2 over par 73. I shot 74 and Donna came in with an 84. Then we went about 15 minutes down the road, to Turkana another very nice golf course. It also plays about 6400 yards from the back tees and the greens were running just a touch faster than 5 and the course was in very good shape. This course is a little newer course so there are not as many trees and is a lttle hillier than Beaver Creek. Even though the course does not have that many trees, they did not decide to let a bunch of weed grow around the course and call it heather. This course also has a great variety of holes and is very enjoyable to play. The hot dog at the turn was very good and the server friendlier than the one at Beaver Creek. The group did not play as well here. I shot 79, Pete 84, and Donna 90. Maybe the group is getting old and just can’t go the distance anymore. These courses are very good, the price is right 25 and 24 dollars with a cart, and as a tandem definitely worth the trip. If you live within an hour of the course worth the 18 hole day. My game was up and down all day and I had a bad day with the tee ball. Fortunately neither one of these courses is very tight and I was able to get away with murder and score pretty well at Beaver Creek. No closer to an answer, I don’t ever know what the question is anymore. Forty  courses down and fifty to go, almost half way there.
