A lifelong historian and history teacher for 42 years I am always looking for new/old adventures. And if it involves golf – all the better. This past week I hit some balls on a course that has been out of business for more than 70 years.
Great fun, still could find several of the tee-boxes and old
sand greens, although they didn’t look much like it any longer. And no I didn’t
use my new Adams irons. I used some clubs from the fifties as I was afraid I
would break my old hickories if I tried them.
No old golf balls though, I just teed up a modern Tommy Armour, not
because I like this ball but because the Worthington, Tommy Armour, was the
ball of choice when this course was up and running in the 1930s.
Great way to spend a warm early spring day in Wyoming.
I have managed to play several rounds this month, today the wind is blowing, and I will settle for a hike in the state park and some TV golf.
