Perhaps, as stated in my recent post Playing as a Onesome, I’ve been thinking about this the wrong way. All I’ve been thinking is I, I, I. Maybe I should be thinking about you, the reader.
The numbers tell me there’s not a lot of people reading the blog. That’s fine. I do this mostly to keep a record of my golf travels and secondly to inform and entertain others.
So for any of you that read my blog, I ask you… what courses you want to see on this blog?
There are a couple of restrictions at the moment. First, I have a budget; therefore, courses like French Lick (both Dye and Ross), Belterra (without a coupon), Brickyard Crossing, Avalon Lakes (if still public) and Prairie View are not likely unless they get subsidized.
Next is geography. While my Cincinnati location is prime for the OINK area, it does make courses in Cleveland and South Bend a bit out of day trip range. As you can see from the blog, I usually only get up to the Cleveland area about once a year, so I have to pick my courses wisely.
The top two on my list right now are Eagle Ridge and Purgatory. I have plans for an epic 36 hole round at Bent Tree and Northstar, which are right down the road from each other north of Columbus. My focus will likely remain on the Kentucky State Park and Indianapolis courses for the foreseeable future. Outside of Shaker Run, I’ve documented about all there is to see in Cincinnati outside of Shaker Run, thanks to my latest post on Stonelick Hills. Perhaps Glenview Muni deserves a mention due to its hosting of a USGA Amateur Public Links in 1987.
So let me hear from you, or let the crickets dictate my next course of action (apologies for the pun. Kinda.)
