The first weekend in Chicago where the temperature was in the 80’s… and I’m in Louisville. But that’s OK because I got to play my first round of golf for the 2009 season.

David and I played a quick round over at Twilight Golf Course in Jeffersonville, IN, which is only about 15 minutes from the Indiana/Kentucky border. I say it was a quick round because Twilight is a 9 hole par-3 course (a short course). Twilight has been family owned and operated for over 30 years, and, according to their website, the club pro, Mary Richardson, offers golf instruction at no charge. They offer the same green fees throughout the whole week; $6 for 9 holes, $9 for 18 holes (where you play the course twice).

The course is flat, with nearly no hazards and few trees. Five of the holes run along the boundary of the property, which is bordered by trees and a subdivision, so it is possible to lose a ball if you slice it too far. I’m pretty sure it rained the day before because the fairways were pretty damp. It was kind of funny to watch the ball not bounce after you tee off.

Being a par-3 course, David and I focused on our iron game (which definitely needed some work). Being the first round of the season, my shots were a little rough to begin with, but I quickly re-grouped and hit some decent shots. From the tee box on the third hole, I place a shot right behind the pin, within 10-15 feet of the hole (but then turned around and 3-putted).

David and I ended up shooting the same score, a 46 (with a course par of 27). David and I 2-putted six times and 3-putted three times, but I had four bogeys, while David only had two.
