Well it's been another Par 3 weekend! Saturday evening I was lucky enough to go play the back 9 at Wesselman's Golf Course in Evansville. Now, I suck and I know I suck, but that's what makes Par 3 so much fun. Generally speaking, others don't mind if I'm not the greatest, so it makes a great place to actually go and unwind. And on Sunday morning I was able to play 9 at Howell Park.
Saturday was actually my first game of golf this year and I actually surprised myself. My goal was to shoot under 45 strokes, but I was able to pull off a 38. Again, this was on the back 9 only. On Sunday I pulled off 40 strokes on 9 holes at Howell.
There were a handful of golfers out on Saturday at Wesselmans, but this morning the course was full at Howell. It was great to see so many people out enjoying the city courses. But something kind of caught me off guard this season and that was the price to play a round of golf. Notably, Wesselmans jumped up to $5 to play a full 9, compared to $4 from last year. I would think that the city would be trying to do it's part to keep prices down on affordable entertainment. Likewise Howell was up to $4, but only marginally higher compared to $3.50 last golf season.
It's still a deal, as long as they take care of the greens. See you on the course.
