It is hard sometimes to remember just how long we have been involved with Argue-ment Golf Course. I came across some of the older pictures of the course. Posted with more recent items, they tell the passage of time better than I can with
words. The evergreens, White Pine and Spruce, have grown to nearly obscure the hill, and now hide the roadway to #5.
The pond in front of #9, from a bare hole in the ground to a lush feature. It has been seventeen years.
It’s tough thinking “GOLF!” when the windchill factor is in the single digits. However, this is the time of the year when you can buy golf the cheapest. It is sort of like the used car dealer with the lonely convertible in the back stall of the drifted lot… The dreams of the summer to come.
Once again your humble Confessor will be manning the phone banks at Argue-ment, awaiting the torrent of interest in half price golf for the 2015 season. This ad will show up in the Post Messenger and associated editions during Thanksgiving week.

When I arrived at the course this morning to feed and water the cats, this is the view that greeted me. All three ponds are completely iced over from night time temperatures in the 10 degree range. Only yesterday they were still open. Winter’s suddenness should not come as a surprise, but it always does. I suspect that is because there is a deep need for denial, even in the face of prudent preparation. One always hopes that what is forecast will not occur.
The birds and animals with whom we share this space know better. This flock of turkeys was picking grit on the driveway when I pulled in. They had gleaned the soybean field adjacent to the course. The modern harvesting equipment leaves more to imagination and hope than to beak and crop, but the birds check it over anyway. They do not seem to be bothered by the cold. I surely am.
The gun deer season begins a week from today. Monday, I and my hunting companions will stake our claims to various locations for our stands. We set our lines of sight and fields of fire so as not to endanger each other or the neighbors, backing each lane with the hillsides. We have harvested more stories than venison the last several years. Maybe this year…
The combination of the closed sign on the post next to the entry and the leafless trees says it all, “We’re done for 2014.” This is a good thing.
Bill Krebs came by today from Wisconsin Turf to pick up the cutter heads for servicing. After a full season, even with great care to make sure all is in alignment, they are dulled and screechy. They need a sharpening and adjustment for the next season. So do we. Thanks for your business this year.
Yes, that is snow… This is the trick…
