Yesterday, my 5-yr old son, Logan, and my step-father-in-law, Jerry, and I went to play golf … in November! Being in the hign-60’s, it was just TOO nice of a day to not take advantage of it. Logan really has a surprisingly good tee-shot. He made it on the green with one tee-shot and chipped one in from 15-ft away in the rough! Pretty stinking amazing for a kid that doesn’t get to play too much. We were playing out at Rivercut. I think it’s a well kept secret that Rivercut has a short 4-hole, chip-n-putt course next to the main 18-hole course. Most golfers can see the short course from the 3rd hole on the main course, but don’t realize what it is. All you need to play is a wedge and a putter, but having a lob-wedge will help the ball stop on the hard greens a little better. Each of the holes are par 3 (I think) and about 50-75 yards in length. The tee-box and green is turf, but the rest of the field is grass. The best part is that it’s free! It’s a fantastic place to practice and let kids learn. Jerry and I were able to just watch Logan and help him with his mechanics. We didn’t have anyone in front of or behind of us, so we played through a second round. It was such a great experience. We played a few balls at a time on each hole, so there was a lot of practice time. Now Logan is ready to go back real soon. So am I.
