PUBLIC WELCOME – anyone can play!

The old Kinsey Dairy Farm barn welcomes all to the Ellis Maples designed 18-hole championship public golf course where anyone can play.

Those of us who live on the Countryside fairways and more important those who learned the art and etiquette of golf at a very young age know how heavily this golf course is played. The serious golfers who have played here since it began operation in 1967 understand the importance of a having an affordable PUBLIC championship 18-hole golf course. I hope some golfers will post here on how they learned to play on a PUBLIC golf course. I know one of our Countryside Neighborhood members son, Kenny Saunders, learned here at the age of 5. He now operates a beautiful golf course in Vietnam. Then there is the woman who has played here for 50 years and would not play anywhere else. Where will the youth of modest means get their opportunity to excel in a non-contact sport. Do fights break out on the golf course? Tell me your story about “unnecessary roughness”, “holding” and unsportsmanlike conduct. Any multi-stroke penalties out there? I do know plenty of you who are frequently “off sides” – I have your golf balls! See the parent of this blog Swimming Upstream for a lesson on Hunting for Balls.
