Golfing near QZ
« on: January 04, 2006, 08:01:58 AM »
Are there any golf courses within a 30 minute ride from QZ?

I think QZ has a golf course.  Probably a little different than what your use to.

As long as it is a "real" golf course, I will bring my clubs.

Since I don't play golf I don't have any idea as to the quality of the couse.  Maybe Ron M can tell you.

I think Phil plays golf also?  Maybe a few of us can have a golf outing.  I am no threat as I have just picked up the game after a 30 year absence, but I sure have a lot of fun with it.  We are having an early breakfast today as Wednesday is Men's League here at Pueblo El Mirage, so I am off to the course in a few minutes.  Sharon will be off to quilting with her new Christmas Pffaf quilting machine.  She is looking forward to comparing notes with Sam at QZ in a few days.   ;D  And Sky will be looking for an apple from you!   ;D

Smoky,

Real is a relative term. :) There is a golf course on the north side of town about a 1/2 mile or so out a dirt road. There are holes somewhere in the desert and there are all kinds of obstacles on the "fairway". You will not find any green grass.

There is another one in town but it disappears during the time we are there since it's a parking lot with holes and it is used for vendors during our rally. :)

There are some "real" golf courses along the Colorado near Parker, AZ.

Smoky:

     I am planning a golf outing while at QZ.  Pete Harpin and Bob Zambinini are also golfers, so we should be able to get a group out to play.  The closest course is in Parker.  Looks like a neat course, but very tight.  We have also played at Havasou City.  Course is fine. 

    Bring your clubs.

The QZ course has the Masters the last weekend in February. These pictures were taken with our local RV club during it's 1st annual desert golf classic ;D ;D

I will have my clubs along and will be available. I golf a lot here at home so if there is a full group I can pass.  Besides Ron outdrives me all the time and embarrasses me.

I believe another new course has opened up at Lake Havsu recently, but that is a long drive.

 I am coming down either Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon.

Smoky,

Only with scratch golfers, no handicaps allowed and only for money.

There may be 8-12 rigs from our local RV club at QZ and we were talking yesterday at our meeting yesterday to have our 2nd annual PebbleCreek Desert Golf Classic at the QZ course. Smoky, you are welcome to join in ;D ;D

More pictures of the course

Great Bernie!  I will be sure to include a sand wedge in my bag as those traps look pretty large!   ;D

When you play the QZ GC you only need 1 club and it should be the most beat up one you have. If it isn't before you play, it will be after you play :D :D

I bet Lee Trevino would do well at QZ.  He was famous for taking bets that he could beat someone using only his putter for an entire round.  Maybe this week I will practice driving with my putter at the driving range.  ;D
