It was called Maplehurst GC near Lakewood NY (just west of Jamestown) what a beautiful course with spectacular views of Lake Chautauqua.Here is a pic from the 6th green of me and 2 of my brothers.I'm the good looking one on the left.

George I know what you mean. Here in Calgary we are 4200 feet above sea level ( there is no sea but I will continue ) and normally hit an eight iron 155 - 160 yards. A bunch of us go to Myrtle Beach every March and it takes a couple of holes to drop down a club as the ball falls short of the green. Then the 7 iron ( in heavy wind a 5 iron ) to be there in regulation.The older I get, the more I manage the course.

Dano I know just what you mean.I just turned 57 If I am over 200 yrds out I lay up to the 100 yd marker where I know my PW will get me on the green.Now if I can just get used to the Oddosey putter my kids got me for Fathers Day I'll be in good shape.
Don't know about you but I have an 0837 tee time in the morning.LOL Sorry
Let me know when you are going to Myrtle Beach next year,it is only an 8 hr drive from here,maybe we can get together for a round

Cool

George as you know, ( from your LOL ) tee times are not available this time of year in snowy Calgary. The Oddysey
putter takes some time to get used, as the tracking is a little different. Try using a little extra weight to putt past the hole and keep the pace of the ball rolling.. Anyway, we normally go down and hit Myrtle Beach the first week in March.

Default cardboard

A good idea when working on things that are close to a radiator like a fan clutch , water pump etc. is to get a cardboard box preferably a heavy one like a case of anti freeze comes in and take the time to cut an exact piece that is the size of the radiator core and place it in front of the radiator itself. It will save a lot of grief.

That's a very good idea Keith. I did that when I was replacing my surge tank and saved a hit to the radiator.

Were we talking about . . . golf on here?

When we bought the 65 landau a few yrs ago, my brother in law asked me if it came with a set of clubs in the trunk.
Funny guy huh?
