It has been probably a decade since I last swung a golf club. My husband and I loved to play some twilight golf once and a while at Pole Creek golf course before we had kids.  This was also when I drove the beer cart after just getting my real estate license.  We could stroll the course as neither of us were very serious golfers.  It was a nice way to get a little exercise, play a game and enjoy the fall evenings in Grand County.

Since having children, my husband plays with his buddies once or twice a year and with my folks whenever they are in town.  My clubs have been collecting cobwebs in the garage

Last weekend, I was coerced into playing with some of my favorite girlfriends in a fund raising tourney.  I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to hit the ball more than two feet.  Thank goodness it would be a best ball tournament.

I had sooooo much fun!  We are so lucky to have this public course in our backyard!  Pole Creek offers some of the most beautiful links in Colorado.

My team of moms won the DFL award (you figure that out) but nonetheless it was an amazing time at Pole Creek. The club house has been remodeled since my days as the bev-cart-girl and the views from everywhere at the course are outstanding.  I was bummed not to have played the newest (although 10+ years old) nine on the “Ridge” but the Ranch and Meadow courses are challenging enough for this amateur.  I hope to have a good excuse to get out there again soon.

BTW…check out the Pole Creek website as the rates for golf go down after Sept 15.  If you ask any local, the fall is one of the most incredible times to play in this mountain valley.
