Play a round of golf at Dubsdread Golf Course in College Park

Dubsdread Golf Course

Ellen’s dad is 92 years old and he and a friend try and play 9 holes of golf every Tuesday and Thursday morning.  Ellen and I get the opportunity to play with them occasionally.

The Dubsdread golf curse is said to be named for causing dread in new or inexperienced golfers.  Ellen and I can attest to this with many a ball lost in the water hazards or woods surrounding some of the greens.  A recent article in the College Park Community Paper highlighted that the course is nearing it’s 95th year of existence!

We enjoyed a quick 9 holes this morning.  There were golfers in front and behind us but the pace stayed steady and we never felt pressured.  A couple of par putts and an amazing miss on the only birdie putt were the best Ellen and I could muster this morning.

Take a bicycle ride to Scruffy Murphy’s in College Park

Bike ride to College Park

Yesterday I enjoyed sharing a bicycle ride with a friend through College Park to Scruffy Murphy’s.

The ride included winding around Lake Adair and Lake Ivanhoe near Downtown Orlando.  I would encourage anyone in the area to take an afternoon or morning to enjoy the scenic ride with brick paved streets, awesome views of the Orlando skyline and the quaint shops of College Park.
