Looks like golf is ging to be a difficult proposition for the next couple of days, so its a good time to make some golfing plans and perhaps a do little online shopping.
By Friday, the sun is expected to be back out and Back Creek Golf Club (see photo) is holding a morning shotgun start special. It is a 7:30am tee time… and $30 covers your green fee and cart.
A few local courses are promoting their Couples leagues and events:
At Moccasin Run they begin June 3, are Fridays at 5p through the end of July, and will have a different format each week. Cost is $40 per couple.
The Manor Golf Club’s Couples Leagues begin this Thursday evening at 6:00, and every level of player is encouraged to come out. It’s $16 per player for nine holes and cart. Call Cheryl at 610-334-8690 for more information.
Makefield Highlands is holding a 9-hole Couples Scramble on Sunday, May 22. The entry fee includes green fees, cart, buffet dinner and prizes…. and is $75 per couple for Lower Makefield Twp. residents and $90 for others.
And this isn’t a couples event but the format is certianly unique: Ron Jaworski’s Valleybrook Golf Club has a 2-player scramble on tap for Sunday, May 29. Here’s the twist: it is a 3-club tournament. Choose your three favorite weapons and sign up!
If you’re not familiar with Valleybrook, I did a video tour there last year and you can find it here.
If you’re like me you spend the days you don’t golf in front of the computer trying to buy a better game.
