The day after having a pacemaker inserted, I was feeling OK. Although I didn’t rest well during the night.
But I was taken aback by a story in The Advocate, regarding another attempt by Rolfe McCollister and company to convert City Park’s golf course.
And to think I once voted for the guy for mayor!
The nine-hole course, where I first began playing in 1950, is perfect for an old duffer like me. It’s short, with only three long holes — two, three, seven — and the fees are reasonable.
If it is closed, the only course on this side of town will be the 18-hole Webb Park, which is longer, more difficult for seniors like me – and costlier.
In 2012 there were 31,322 rounds played at Webb, compared with 16,335 at City Park. Can Webb absorb this many more rounds?
Heaven forbid this proposed change again!
