Hats Off to Thee, Minnesota
As a proud native of God’s Country, I noted with great pleasure the statistics in the August 11th issue of Golf World on rounds played in the first six months of 2006 compared to the first six months of 2005.
It seems that an overall nation-wide 2.3% increase in rounds played is good news for golf in general. But in particular, my beloved home state registered the greatest increase in the country, 11.7%.
Now I must admit that my little bubbling stew of pride and admiration of the quality of golf and golfers in Minnesota is spiced generously with “told-you-so.” You see, I’ve been lobbying the Powers Whose Names Cannot Be Uttered Aloud here at TravelGolf.com to send me back home to write about the amazing courses built there in the last decade or so.
All to no avail. It seems the Powers Who Cannot Keep Their Drives In The Short Grass believe that essentially no golf is played at all north of the Mason-Dixon Line (unless one happens to be in New England).
So I appeal to you, readers: If you are from Minnesota (or Wisconsin) and would like to see more (anything!) written about your wonderful courses on TravelGolf.com, please leave a comment. It is said by The Powers That Even Sign Paychecks With A Wicked Slice that people who write comments on blogs are like cockroaches: For each comment, there are 1,000 readers who do not write. (Well, they also compare some of you to cockroaches for more literal, personal reasons – and you know who you are – but that’s not relevant right now.)
So, Hats Off to Thee, Minnesota. I do hope to golf upon your blessed soil next season.
Deacon’s Lodge, Nisswa, Minnesota. One of many Bunyanesque courses that SHOULD be reviewed on TravelGolf.com.
