My World # 44

This is my posting for the My World Meme. It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, Louise and myself. Won't you join in, I want to see where you live and thrive.

I just made a trip to Pennsylvania to camp and go to a golf outing. It always feels like home when I get back to the Allegheny Mountains. This is a view from the town of Emlenton which has been bypassed since adding the interstate. Click on the photo to get an idea of the size of the bridge over the Allegheny River.
I went down into the town through the windy roads for old times sake. This is a view from the bottom of the river gorge.
We golfed at one of the cheapest courses I have ever played and a senior can play 9 holes for $4.20 + $5 for the cart. I is a fairly hard 9 hole course near where I camp. This was an out building that had seen better days but I love these kinds of shots. The number one fairway runs in front of this building.
You can see a lot of great areas of the world by visiting the above site.

That must have been great. I have never heard of golfing at such a price.

Hey, that ol' homestead just needs a few shingles is all!

The river picture makes me want to drop a line and see what's what!

Oh what a great time you had. The photos are wonderful, especially that home with a hole on the roof.

Now I don't play golf and even I know that was a good deal. Intriguing little shack, just begging for a makeover.

Rose said...

Oh, man, I love that first view...and I love shots of old, rundown buildings.

Quite the sportsman eh Tom.

It sounds as if you had a great golf outing. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. When are you going to come down and play one of our courses? I'm afraid it will cost more than $9.20, though.

Beautiful scenery. The countryside looked so peaceful and clean. Can imagine all the fresh air you can have.

Glennis said...

I also like the old ruined building shot, nice golf course too, but most of all I just love your squirrel header. WOW.

Beautiful photo's Tom.

Gaelyn said...

I didn't even notice the bridge until I enlarged. Sure is big.
Really like the old building, yet am surprised the golf course hasn't knocked it down. Wonder what it was originally?

Camping and golf is an interesting mix.

Looks like you had a great time! Mr. Dragon would love those golf prices! :D :D

Carolyn said...

Tom, what a neat post. There is nothing better than backroad travel and visiting old and new places off the beaten track and then to get a deal at something you like to do...well what could be better! Have a great week.

That bridge is really neat. The road seems to disappear into the treed hillside. I don't think I've ever heard of 9 holes being so inexpensive! Score!

Arija said...

What a lovely sentimantal journey for you, and cheap golf as well!

Reader Wil said...

Great tour, Tom! But I think the house is in an even worse condition than the sod/turf houses of my post of today!!

kjpweb said...

If the cart costs more than golfing - it's cheap indeed! :)
Nice shots - especially the derelict house!
Cheers, Klaus

Nice story Fishing Guy. Nothing beats going to your old stomping grounds. And playing golf at a cheap price too. I'm afraid a round of golf at our Piedmont Golf Club is around $120 without the rented golf cart. Nice river views too.

Happily Retired Gal said...

What a golfing bargain! Inexpensive and in a beautiful spot as well! Just lovely ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Pietro said...

I'm glad you had a good time playing golf, Tom!
Beautiful pictures of the countryside.

Know if that building is going cheap? I am looking for a place to stay/ :)

Tipper said...

Sounds like a good trip-you know I'm glad you got to revisit some of your old haunts.

Beautiful scenery. It would make me feel at home too. I miss my mountains.
