Golfer would pay more for rounds at Countryside Golf Course – video

Blake Medding hits one down the 12th fairway

Stopping by to get a few free golf shots on Countryside’s 12th fairway was Blake Medding a Southeast resident who lives a stones throw from the Mayor’s home. Medding had a lot to say about the history of Countryside as he hit some balls he claimed would surely be birdies.

Medding said he wouldn’t mind paying an extra $10 a round to help keep the course open. “It’s not about money – it’s about the experience and Countryside provides the best experience in the City,” said Medding.

Just as two other young golfers teeing off at the third fairway along Frontage road said they were disappointed that the city would close the “best course in the city.”

City administration has yet to communicate with the neighborhood surrounding the course.

Blake, Thanks for the kind words about Countryside Golf Course, we agree with you but city council has other thoughts. I wish some of city council had been golfers out here and they may have given alittle thought to have it as a city owned golf course.

Blake, I couldn’t agree more. You hit the nail on the head. Countryside has such a connection to golf history. Yet, no one seems to really care. The powers that hold the keys are so busy looking for gold that they don’t realize they already have a treasure chest.
