Today we went to Lake Arthur near Butler Pa which is a 55 minute drive from house. This course plays 6600 yds. from the blue tees and the greens ran a 5.5 on the stimp meter and were very smooth. This was suppose to be a 36 hole day but yours truly’s cold has gotten much worse and I probably should not have played at all today. After the first 18 I knew I had had it and we had to call it a day. This golf course is very nice and challenging. It is a very flat golf course which is unusual in this area and has a great variety of holes. Many of the holes are tree lined but the course is not overly narrow.The course was in very good shape but there were some real wet spots on the course so they must have a little bit of a drainage problem. This golf course is worth the trip even if you are only going to play 18 as we did today. Even the sand traps were in pretty good shape. This is one of those courses that has a lot of easy holes and then it has some fair but real difficult holes. The nicest thing about the course is the flatness which makes it easy to walk if you like to do that. The hot dog at the turn was very tasty and the onions were particularly flavorful. The group had its ups and downs today but overall played ok. I was out of it most of the day but managed an 82, Pete shot 85 and Donna had a 93. As I said my cold or whatever this is has gotten a lot worse so I am going to have to take it easy until it gets better. I did find one answer today. Don’t play golf when you feel this sick. Forty three down with forty seven to go.
