Anyone played Kenny Perry's course in KY?

2 posts in this topic

We're going to be headed out that away this summer on vacation, and I'm curious about any opinions anyone has on his course.  Also looking for a course in the Cincinnati area - under $100 and allows walking.  Preferably with folks with a bit of a sense of humor because I'd like to have my daughter caddy for me - payment on a bet she lost.

If you are referring to Country Creek in Franklin, KY I have played there several times though a number of years ago.  At the time layout was nice - though a couple of funky holes sort of wedged into a back corner.  Conditions/maintenance were good at the time.

    • What Climate Wars Did To Science
      Since an international Climate Conference is heating up, why not an update? The NY Times has a simple Q&A on climate change. Here are 2 of the 12 questions in plain language. Short Answers to Hard Questions   8. Q: Are the predictions reliable? A: They’re not perfect, but they’re grounded in solid science. The idea that Earth is sensitive to greenhouse gases is confirmed by many lines of scientific evidence. For instance, the basic physics suggesting that an increase of carbon dioxide traps more heat was discovered in the 19th century, and has been verified in thousands of laboratory experiments.  Climate science does contain uncertainties, of course. The biggest is the degree to which global warming sets off feedback loops, such as a melting of sea ice that will darken the surface and cause more heat to be absorbed, melting more ice, and so forth. It is not clear exactly how much the feedbacks will intensify the warming; some of them could even partially offset it. This uncertainty means that computer forecasts can give only a range of future climate possibilities, not absolute predictions.  But even if those computer forecasts did not exist, a huge amount of evidence suggests that scientists have the basic story right. The most important evidence comes from the study of past climate conditions, a field known as paleoclimate research. The amount of carbon dioxide in the air has fluctuated naturally in the past, and every time it rises, the Earth warms up, ice melts, and the ocean rises. A hundred miles inland from today’s East Coast, seashells can be dug from ancient beaches that are three million years old. These past conditions are not a perfect guide to the future, either, because humans are pumping carbon dioxide into the air far faster than nature has ever done. 9. Q Why do people question climate change? Hint: ideology. Most of the attacks on climate science are coming from libertarians and other political conservatives who do not like the policies that have been proposed to fight global warming. Instead of negotiating over those policies and trying to make them more subject to free-market principles, they have taken the approach of blocking them by trying to undermine the science. This ideological position has been propped up by money from fossil-fuel interests, which have paid to create organizations, fund conferences and the like. The scientific arguments made by these groups usually involve cherry-picking data, such as focusing on short-term blips in the temperature record or in sea ice, while ignoring the long-term trends. The most extreme version of climate denialism is to claim that scientists are engaged in a worldwide hoax to fool the public so that the government can gain greater control over people’s lives. As the arguments have become more strained, many oil and coal companies have begun to distance themselves publicly from climate denialism, but some are still helping to finance the campaigns of politicians who espouse such views.

    • Interesting company on Friday's round and an etiquette lesson
      Good morning fellow TST members.  How is everyone today?  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and had the opportunity to play some good golf. Friday morning I went golfing as a single player and got paired up with two other gentleman, a son and father.  It was a very busy course and I was not the only one to think of heading out on Black Friday to play golf instead of fighting with the masses over discounted materials.  On the first tee the son hit good distance but was left hand side, the father hit average also left hand side.  I teed off last with them already in their cart and knocked a good one out there straight.  My second shot I duffed straight about 80 yards on the ground but so did they.  I put my ball on the green about 20-25 feet away and drained a putt to save par.  They got bogey and double bogey or both got double bogey I can't remember. At the second hole they were ahead of us and got out the cart and the son immediately teed up his ball to hit, I am not a stickler on etiquette, especially considering I am there to have a good time and being that I am paired up with them I didn't say anything.  We play the hole out and come up to a par three.  The father hits and makes the green pin high about 10 feet away, I hit and make the green (kidney shaped green) about 25 feet away.  The son's ball landed in the curved rough part of the kidney shaped green but much closer to the hole than I was.  The dad walked up to hold the stick, the son looks at his ball and is not even ready and looks at me as he is standing in front of the ball between the pin and crouched down.  I thought I was okay to putt and did so, laying up decently.  The kid then plays his chip on.  We finish out the hole and the son (lower 30s in age) kindly pulls me aside and tells me "Hey, I want you to know that I don't mind but so you know in the future you never, ever putt until all players are on the green...etc., etc....."  He then goes on and on about it in a polite way, trying to instruct me in the courtesies of the game.  I found it to become a bit overbearing but I understand it was in the spirit of good faith and sportsmanship and helping a newbie player out with the intricacies of the game.  Hey, when a guy who says he grew up on a country club gives you an etiquette tip and is helping you out, you should pay attention, and you should appreciate it.  Some time later on the back nine his father did the same thing and he didn't say a word about it. (As an odd side note on Saturday night as I was watching the Australian Open that exact same scenario came up and a player putted before another chipped on, and the announcers made mention of it.  So is it a breach of etiquette in a friendly round to have done what I did?)   The thing that I found the most interesting however was that this person, apparently a player of the traditional courtesies and gestures of golf didn't ever stay on the tee box until all players teed off.  He didn't give honors where honors were due to the person scoring the lowest score on previous hole, AND, to top it all off, this person eventually wound up hitting into a group still off to the side of the green about two holes later.  We called out fore when it hooked and landed near them.   Lo and behold we did get a visit by a marshall for his action (the group ahead did overreact a bit and they lied and said we/he had hit into them numerous times, which was not true).  Afterwards this persons game rapidly devolved, he was angry and not able to control his emotions.  I felt bad for him because we were out there to enjoy ourselves and he let that get in the way of a good time.   I said something to him on the next tee box (maybe I should not have) that we were out there to have a good time and not to let it get to them.  F them in fact!  Well by the 13th tee or so, our country club raised champion was not even playing what I would call golf.  Took a mulligan for an errant tee shot.  Didn't like his second shot (fourth) from where it was, dropped another ball and hit.  He did this a number of times.  On one hole he hit into a fairway bunker, his second shot out of it caught the lip, ball rolled back a bit and he just dropped a ball where he stood, struck it to the same effect.  Picked up his balls and didn't play the hole out.  This happened several times, and on the last hole when his second drive also went OB he picked up and didn't even finish the hole.   After the etiquette pep talk he gave me as well as his country club bred credentials I would have expected more, but that day he let a few things ruin his day.  Lesson to be had:  If you are playing a $37 dollar course, lighten up, and never, ever, ever, ever hit into a group ahead of you because it can ruin your whole day.   I really enjoyed playing with the dad and would play again with him if ever saw him.

      That landed a bit close to the water, maybe he thought it was in the water.
