Schedules are starting to come out, and you can almost feel the time for golfing season to get going again, especially with the nice weather this past week.
The winter seems to continue to blast away, and the cold just keeps on coming. The weather gave me time to sit down and compare all the scorecards and yardage for all of the courses in the county.
Direction is not one of my strong suits in golf, which is a problem. When I do hit the green with a shot, it seems as if it is always as far away from the cup as it could possibly be while still being on the green. You would think that every now and then that one shot would just stick up the…
Ever wondered what it would be like to see golf for the first time and try to figure out what’s going on? Back in the early 2000s, while I was running Perdue Farms China, we were into advertising via sporting events.
Snow pretty much shut down golf a good part of this past week, but there are a lot of wheels turning out at Cane Creek. Rick Rounsavall is now running things in maintenance and taking care of the course, and Mike McKinney is running things at the pro shop.

There is a great deal at the Greystone Golf and Country Club in Birmingham, which is where the Regions Tradition Senior tournament takes place every year.
Golf was not her thing, but in when White Plains student Hanna Dyar was in seventh grade, she gave it a whirl and has been on the course ever since. Dyar, now a sophomore at White Plains High School, is also a basketball player, and I caught up with her at a recent basketball game at Oxford …
Dalton Chandler’s eight-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole iced the victory for him and teammate Caleb McKinney in the first par-3 scramble at Cane Creek last week.
Fall is here, and while the golfing world is settling into football, there is a group of folks who are in the middle of the fall golf season. That slipped my mind until one of our readers reminded me in an email last week. He reminded me of the fall golf season of the JSU men’s and women’s g…
New Pine Hill Country Club owner will have an open house Oct. 20, and you’ll have a chance to meet him and his staff and see what is going on out there.
There’s a current tussle at Cane Creek regarding the Saturday morning dogfight that the course’s administration and the golfers disagree on. The administration wants a sequential start time, and the golfers want a shotgun start.
It is always interesting to watch the different personalities that make their way around a golf course and how they deal with the situations they run across. With football season upon us now, it leads me to think of how these same personalities make their way into a football stadium to watch…
Thursday was a day of change for the Calhoun County golf world as Doug Wert, director of golf at Cider Ridge, and Kenny Szuch, director of golf at Cane Creek, announced their resignations.
The team of Clay Calkins and Chris Hubbard birdied seven straight holes to make up a two-shot deficit and track down Brennan Clay and Andrew Brooks, winning the Buddy Moore two-man scramble last weekend in a playoff.
What a great finish last week at “The Hill” in the 81st Calhoun County Championship as Jeremy McGatha birdied three of the last five holes to win his third county title.
Dalton Chandler is closing in on Calhoun County Golf Tour Player of the Year honors as he fired a 65 on Saturday to take the lead in the Calhoun County Championships. The 22-year-old has a lot of close friends nipping on his heels as there is a logjam at the top going into Sunday’s final rou…
Wow, there’s a lot of golf this weekend to watch on TV with the PGA and me getting to play a little golf in the Wounded Warriors Tournament on Saturday at Silver Lakes.
