Once again, the Travelling Golfer got a chance to stop by and play a late day round at Mineral Mound State Park’s golf course.
As usual, it was my buddy Frank’s day off!
I had a friend, Rob, from Louisville (pictured above) with me and it was his first time to play one of my favorite golf courses.
The weather was humid and there wasn’t even a hint of a breeze, but we enjoyed the heat and the serenity of one of Kentucky’s most scenic golf courses and that saying a lot!
The back nine, which happens to have a view of Lake Barkley on every hole, from every directions it seems, was a sheer delight as my buddy rob lit it up for a 33 and finished with a smooth 73, I think.
My putting sucked, as usual, and my short game kinda went with it, but it was so dang quiet, scenic and serene, I didn’t care.
One thing that didn’t suck was my driving. All year I’ve been hitting more fairways and as long, or longer, than ever, even as my age creeps up the scale.
Martini Golf Tees. Simply the best thing to happen to my drives…ever.
I’m a skeptic and I would not have believed it, but now my playing partners are asking, “What kind of tee is that dawg?” Some of them I tell, some of them I hide it from and some of them get one or two from me.
Find ‘em, try ‘em, feel the fairway grass for a change.
The staff and the people who hang around are so dang friendly that you wanna just sit out there with them and enjoy the place.
The rates are friendly, too. It’s like your own little stimulus package when you play after 2:00 PM!
Stop by and see Frank and the fine folks at mineral Mound’s golf course and tell ‘em Mike sent you!
And here’s a little slideshow video of Mineral Mound State Park’s Golf Course.
