My first visit of the year to one of my favorite golf courses came a few days ago and I took my friend Mike with me. We got paired up with 2 great guys that live close by.
So, yeah, basically, it was the Mike and Mike show 😉
My aplogies to Greenie and Golic on ESPN Radio.
Mineral Mound State Park Golf Course, when it’s green and warm, is one of the most beautiful, quiet, serene and golfiest palces on the face of the earth.
I’ll show you a few pictures as we go, but remember that we had a devastating ice storm in the Commonwealth of Kentucky a couple of months ago and, all over our state, we’re still cleaning up the trees, limbs and destruction left behind.
The maintenance staff have their hands full at Mineral Mound State Park.
Overall, we enjoyed the heck out of our round. The greens were as slick as linoleum, as usual, so I gotta get a message to my buddy frank, the PGA Pro, to ease up on us poor saps that can’t putt a lick 😉
I may need to try a belly putter, like my friend Mike, in the photo below.
One of the holes on the back nine, I believe it’s number 13, has a forced carry over an inlet of Lake Barkley. My buddy mike used his handy-dandy range finder to gauge the carry over to a forward point in the fairway.
Too bad his game and his range finder don’t talk to each other 😉
I’ll be heading back to Mineral Mound …very soon … and I urge you to call Frank and beg him for a tee time. You’ll be glad you did!
