I played The Old Works golf course again, as it is one of my favorites. It is a Jack Nicklaus design and was built on the sight of the old copper mine. I wrote about it on the blog in the August 2014 post when I played it with my cousin Mike and Dave Welsh. One difference this time playing the course was the many Marmots living in the surrounding hills and eating the grass on the course. I also played the course here at the Hot Springs Resort and almost parred the over 600 yard par 5 fifth hole, just lipping out a 10 foot putt. One afternoon Josie and I went to the hot spring pool and sat around in the refreshing 103 degree waters. When we got ready to leave a very strange thing had happened. Someone had stolen my Hawaiian shirt. Our guess is that someone thought there might be my phone or money in the shirt. Or maybe they just really liked the shirt. I reported it to the pool office but they did not seem too surprised. I found out later by reading reviews of the place this happens all the time. We suggest not going there.
Tomorrow morning we head for Canada.
