Cedar Valley Golfing With Friends!

This past week my wife and I were at our place in Luzerne with good friends Ed and Linda Ponzy and Bob and Linda Baltrip. Everyone brought their golf clubs including both Linda’s!

Monday morning we showed up at Cedar Valley Golf Course in Comins, just about 5 miles North of Fairview.  I have played the course many times over the years, but this would be my first chance to play this year.  Cedar Valley is under new ownership, as Mike and Rebecca Harrington manage the course (and amusement park) for the owners John and Carole Kulhavi.  Both Bob and Ed have golfed here before, but this is the first time the three of us have been able to play together on this “gem” of a course.  Even if you don’t play your best round you will enjoy yourself I promise!  The course is in one of the most awesome “northern” settings one could imagine.  Majestic pines, maples, oaks, and cherry trees line this superbly laid out 18 hole course. Throw in some strategically laid out ponds, hills, and valley’s and you have the making of some great memories, not to mention some wonderful photo ops.  The grounds are beautiful, especially around the clubhouse with it’s dazzling array of flowers, and newly remodeled buildings!

Monday morning we arrived about 8:30 and were able to get right on with no problem.  The greens were in excellent shape, but you better know how to putt, as the pin placements are tough.  We enjoyed ourselves immensely and were back at the cabin by 1:00 o’clock!

Tuesday is dollar a hole day ($18 bucks and a cart) plus dollar hotdogs and dollar drinks.  Linda Baltrip would join us on Tuesday and my wife and Linda P. would go along for the ride!  We arrived at the same time as Monday, but found 20 cars in the parking lot ahead of us!  At the Pro Shop we were told it would be 3-1/2 hours before we could get on, we were all so disappointed!  Our sad faces must of done the trick as we were told if we could “mount up” immediately we could go off the front!  We set a record getting our clubs on the carts and driving over to the number one hole.  Again it was such a beautiful day playing with good friends on such a lovely course that we hardly complained when we “drowned” a brand new ball.  Like Bob likes to say “Hey we aren’t good enough to complain!”  Even though the course draws a lot of golfers for the Tuesday special things moved well on the course and we finished in decent time.

I am now trying to get three of my golf playing brothers to take a few days and come up for some fun at Cedar Valley.  Hopefully in the next few weeks they will be able to also enjoy this “Gem of the pines” in Comins Michigan.
