The Death of a Par 3
« on: August 22, 2008, 10:18:12 AM »

I'm sure I've mentioned that a favorite par 3 has lain dormant for the last few years, bought out to seemingly be neglected.  A very sad sight.  Well, last summer they began to put some roads through it, and this year has me totally disappointed, leaving absolutely no hope that whatever replaces it would be able to even partially fill those empty shoes.  That little golf course, including the beautiful hole where my grandfather got a hole in one, is being turned into a costco. Cry

Bummer.  What course is it?  I can't read the sign.

Country View Par 3.  It also had a nice little mini golf course, too, which Chelsea and Garrett got to play. Sad

Yeah, that's what I meant, hence the Sad.   Sad


As of 2 a.m., the sign is still there. Cheesy  It would be great if they would leave it up. Cool

it's not all bad... where else can you get a law degree, ride from the entrance to the red sofa section, and then stop next door to get gentleman's latte ?

I first learned to play on a little par-3.  Holes were something like 50-110 yards long.  TINY greens.  Hit of mats.  And I don't mean fake grass mats like at driving ranges -- I mean MATS, like the kind made of woven rubber strips that you'd put on your front porch in the 70s.  Lots of memories of playng there with friends, family, even a couple dates.  And carrying a wedge and putter with on my paper route, then sneaking onto the course and practicing chipping/putting until the fear of getting caught overwhelmed me.

It's been a U-Store facility for years now.  Sad

Oh Clive, I'm glad to see that the good finally overcame the evil in you. Devil Grin Grin Grin

The good thing about getting old, is that you can hit the ball out of sight.
