Finally Shot Par Yesterday!……

I have been aiming at this all summer long! Finally carded a 34 on the white tees at Cobbossee Colony, my home course.

Mother and I snuck out of the store a bit early in the afternoon, too hot a day to be inside and with temps in the low 90’s too hot for walking. We strapped our clubs to a riding cart and enjoyed the sun.

We play at a course that was once part of an exclusive resort. Something like the “Dirty Dancing” get away, maintained as an escape for the rich city folks back in the 30’s, 40’s 50’s +. I talk with local folks from time to time who share experiences of working as summer help in the hay days.

Cobbossee is a 9-hole par 34 Course with 3 par threes and only one par 5. Course rating 61.6 and a slope of 100. It is not as renowned today as I am sure it was back when although it is just fine with me, I really enjoy the folks who run it and the challenge the course offers when I play. It’s not as long as some of the more modern courses built today but the small greens and the uneven lies most holes are known for make for tough play.

Yesterday’s round was actually pretty uneventful play wise. I had a bogie on #2, birdied #3 and pared the remaining 7. Never got into trouble and didn’t really do anything that remarkable. The 3-footer to finish 34 as Mother held the pin had me thinking, still in doubt until my ball rolled dead center into the cup and made that bouncing around sound in the bottom all golf addicts love to hear.

It was a nice afternoon, glad it was shared with Mother.
