I love supporting local businesses, and of course I play my share of golf. This week, I want to feature a locally and family owned golf course I have been playing my who life. Royal Crest in Columbia Station, pretty much at the Strongsville city line. If you know where SouthPark Mall is, it's just maybe 3 miles or so west of it on the same road, RT. 82.
I root for these guys every year. Golf is a business where big companies or cities, the MetroParks own the many of the courses, and it is great to see a family operations thrive. RC has been there since the 1960's and is still a fun place to play. A course that is good for all skill levels too. If you want to play a moderate length course it's good, or if you are a front line player, you can play the tips and have a go at it from almost 7,200 yards!
The course is honest, it is right in front of you, flat for the most part, with large greens that are always in great shape. No sand, some water, and a stretch holes where hitting is straight is a must. Plus this is designed well, where good scoring can be achieved simply by good play. To me, it is a short game course as the greens are large, so getting on the green isn't a par guarantee. You can have some long putts here.
Mix in a quaint barn clubhouse and about the nicest staff you can imagine, along with a nice craft beer selection and reasonable rates and deals, RC is great place to play. Outings too if you have a group that is looking for a place to have your outing.
These are very nice people that are worth supporting. Make a Royal Crest run soon. I have my entire life.
Jon Pardi was the musical guest on Friday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and sang his current single "Tequila Little Time":
Let's all check our calendars and see exactly what year it is. It is 2021, and yes, that is Clay Walker back on the charts. One of the real hit makers from the 1990's and early 2000's is back and that is great to see.
He's 51 now, looks great and sounds just as you remember him. Walker is one of those guys that had a great run on the charts with a long line of hits, and a bunch of number ones. I was a fan, as were we all. What is interesting is that I feel there will be for the foreseeable future a taste for 90's country. So many of today's country fans became country fans in that incredible decade and have stayed with us. Walker was one of the driving forces in it, and it's really good see him back, as he takes us back.
Remember The First Time You Heard His First Hit? - 1993
This song is just as you remember him, and Walker simply is Walker and not trying to be something reinvented, or trying some new thing because stars half his age are having success with something. This is a nice song, suited right for him. It's been a decade and it's good to see this new song and video. Just as What's It To You was, this song is traditional, very tidy, and does not wear out it welcome.
Grab a coffee, and let's take a listen to Clay Walker's new song!
Kane Brown was an early winner at this years ACM Awards picking up Video of the Year for "Wordwide Beautiful". He sang the song last night on The Late Late Show with James Corden, check out his performance!
Thinking about a summer gig that would be fun and you could let all your feathers out?
Well the RubberDucks are looking for a bunch of Mascots to quack/cheer them on this season.
If you would want to try-out... Click Here. (also how to try-out for the singing of the National Anthem)
It would definitely be fun way to spend the summer for 4 lucky individuals...
If you are like me... when a duo goes solo, you still hear the group... usually.
It doesn't usually work for duos going solo.
