Went golfing last night at around 5 at Howell Park. To be honest I’m very pleased with how well they take care of that little Par3 course. The greens were in decent shape, areas were freshly mowed, and even the chipping green looked finely manicured. Unfortunately, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to enjoy the inexpensive course as often as I would like.
Howell Park closes at 6:300 through the week and even if you are in the middle of your game they will change flags out on you. While this isn’t that big of a deal, consider that Wesselmans leaves their flags out and will stay open till it gets dark. Why is this city course not on the same hours as the rest of the city golf courses in Evansville?
Hopefully Howell will amend their hours as it gets longer into the summer. Right now it’s staying daylight until just after 8:00 and come July all the way up until 9:00. I’d like to be able to head over to Howell Park around 6:00 and have plenty of time to get 18 holes in. As it stands now, getting off work at 5 and heading over to the course, they won’t even let you pay for more than 9 holes after 5:30.
