I’m pleased to present another gripping post by Special Guest Blogger: my 7-year-old (and golf nut) son.
Today I went to Theodore Wirth Par 3 Golf Course. It was really fun. It’s sort of like a real golf course—not mini golf. My favorite hole was when you got to tee off a hill. The fairway’s long, but not too long. The longest hole (#3) is 200 yards. I think that might be the one with a water hazard.
I have my own clubs. You can rent some there but I’m not sure if they’re kids clubs. You should call and ask if they have them if you don’t have clubs. You can see animals too. I’ve seen geese (and a baby one), frogs and wild turkeys. If you’re hungry, you can get snacks there too. They have ice cream, candy bars, coke, probably all those other sodas too. I brought water though because my mom’s cheap (editorial embellishment) and I don’t like bubbly drinks yet.
We heard that they may close this golf course. So you should go and give them your money so they can stay open. Because it’s perfect for golfers like me and there aren’t many courses like this around. Thank you.
