On Friday may 6th, a nice warm sunny day with a slight breeze on the front nine, turned into a windy day for the last nine holes..
Three senior golfers from little Falls golf club, Wayne Thomas, Richard Lampi and Ray Laquerre met up with Gordon Hoskins from the Kitchen Creek golf course to Play at Heron Landing which is on Frog Creek in the Couchiching First Nation Reserve.
Heron Landing Golf Course is a very well looked after course with 5 different tee off’s, with the black tees playing 7136 yards for par 72.
The reds play the shortest with a total of 4589 yards. We played the white tees with the total length of 6211 yards.
Wayne shot the lowest score of the day 88 and had 1 birdie, Gordon shot a 94, Richard shot a 98 with one birdie and Ray turned in a 101 with one birdie.
Each player sampled the water at least once as the water comes into play on 12 of the 18 holes. Ray tested out a few of the sand traps as well and visited some of the rough.
It was a pleasant day on the course, the course at Little Falls had not opened yet so the players drove 90 miles to play at Heron Landing.
