I’m back from enjoying two weeks of R&R in Colorado (ball go far) and another week of filling in for Harry Donahue. During that break I was saddened to see the demise of Horsham Valley Golf Club. Here’s Joe Logan’s piece on that at MyPhillyGolf.com.
Tee It Up…
Now that the extreme heat has departed, this is a good week to hit the links. Here are a few nice local deals:

You can grab that coupon here and it is good through the end of August. You can also take a video tour of Twisted Dune here at TeeItUpPhilly.com.
For the rest of this month at Yardley Country Club, anyone can play Mondays through Wednesdays for the rate of $50 including cart.
