A family golf history and a boy in a yellow wagon.

Celebrate Each Day,

On a recent trip to his small hometown (population of less than 3,000), 2 days of the best golf was played – what made it the best?  Certainly not the level of skill, nor the condition of the golf course.  It was 36 holes, a handful of cold beverages with a best friend on day…

Driving or Practice Range?

Celebrate Each Day, Clubs & Lessons, Course Happenings,

The 4th and final Major of 2014 is here.  Does Tiger play?  Will his back hold up?  Will he hit a driver and if he does – will he find the ball (recently a challenge for El Tigre)? Every day I see guests come to Fossil Trace and warm-up to play while others practice grooving…

It’s a “Feel Good” Friday

Food & Dining,

Many of us think of a day at the course as just that, another day at the golf course.  The great thing about being at the golf course has sometimes little to do with playing the game, but more about listening to the stories of our guests.  This story has little to do about playing…
