Four Golf Courses For When… You Know.

.

Beaver Island: Grand Island, New York
Public 18 hole course with driving range, Pro Shop and putting green. A snack bar is open during course hours. Beaver’s signature hole (4th, Par Five) “presents an opportunity for eagle if played properly. The lake comes into play along the left perimeter of the hole, following it from tee to green. Woods on the right prevent a bail-out. The second shot is played toward a green whose fairway widens slightly toward the target. Nothing prevents a straight ball on either shot [except maybe the tears of defeat getting in the eyes of the defeated], so miss to the front of the green if necessary.”

.

Hickory Ridge: Holley, New York
“The 17th is the hole golfers most talk about. It is a sharp dogleg left over a pond to an dramatically elevated green which has acquired the nickname of Heart Break Ridge. The Adirondack style Clubhouse offers a quaint setting of knotty pine walls and hardwood floors. A deck off of the clubhouse over looks the 9th and 18th greens offer a relaxing place for a drink or snack after your round. The dining hall in the clubhouse has a beautiful large stone fireplace with scenic views of the 9th and 18th hole. The clubhouse with a seating capacity up to 150 is also available for private parties, meetings, banquets or other functions. Our Partyhouse can seat up to 400 people for those big tournies [or an early-end-of-the-season wrap up party]. We also have outdoor outings under our tent.”

.

Arrowhead Golf Club: Akron, New York
“Arrowhead Golf Club (20 miles east of Buffalo) has been built from the ground up in the classic Scottish links style. Western New York’s premier upscale golf course was created to accommodate discerning golfers. The Club is a public facility that has 18 holes of championship golf and has been rated as one of the top courses in New York State and in the Northeast [much like the Northeast Division Champions, the Buffalo Sabres].”

.

South Park Golf Course: Buffalo, New York
Club Rental, Driving Range, Pull Cart Rental, Putting Green, Water Hazards, No Dress Code and Guests Allowed. “This course is well maintained and great for beginners. The fairways are wide open, and water hazards (ponds) come into play on a couple of holes. There are no slope or course ratings for either of the tees shown; ladies tee off from the same set of tees as the men [Which is perfect for Briere…].”

    The playoffs are still going on? Did the Sens do anything this year? :-)

  2. feartheseeds says:

    The Senators are doing just fine. See… if you followed the sport instead of “The Leafs” you’d know hockey was 1) played in Other Cities and, 2) after March.

  3. Dane says:

    I have to admit that maybe, maybe, this might be the year for the Senators. But haven’t they been the team to beat for something like eight years and still have as much to show for it as the Leafs, except a much smaller, more bitter fan base?

  4. feartheseeds says:

    Maybe if even a few of those legions of Leaf Fans had been a touch more bitter it wouldn’t be forty years and counting since the team made it to the Stanley Cup Finals…
