City Golf League

Looking to do some local golf competition? We found this site and thought it was a pretty fun idea. City Golf League is a web site were you can sign up and compete against other golfers in your area. It looks like the only city in the Northwest so far is Portland. But if you enjoy competing, this site is for you!

Golf Spin-off's

You can tell when something is great by how often it is copied or mimicked. Golf is that sport. From Frolf to a ridiculous amount of desk paraphernalia, golf has been copied almost any way you can think of.

Well drinking on the course has always been common place but what about a game of drinking golf? You have played quarters and thumper before so why not a good game of drinking golf?

If drinking isn't a staple in your life and you need to add a touch of excitement, mix in the game you already love and we have .......... Drinking Golf. (if you are out of college and you try this...God Bless)

Golf in Florence

Italy, not Oregon. Bernhard Langer and Rich Beem were among the golfers who participated at the Ponte Vecchio International Approach Championship in December. This event matched players in a contest of approach shots from the famous Ponte Vecchio, the Florence bridge known as the birthplace of bankruptcy. This event, with a minuscule 1st-place prize of $25,000, was also played in freezing temperatures. Does that sound like fun? Some people just can't pass up the chance to hit golf balls of a six-century-old landmark.

Was it an old Tiger commercial where he was playing the world as his golf course? What would be some good landmarks that would work with golf? The Great Wall for a fairway? Alcatraz for an island green? Playing putt-putt at Stonehenge?
