It is almost like taking a double breath of fresh air when you turn the corner and see the greens in the distance knowing that within minutes you will be one with nature at Patton’s Glen Par 3. What started off as artificial turf, has quickly turned into a well groomed, real grass friendly golf course, and the hottest place to be, from April till late October; weather permitting. Yes it is true, Patton’s replaced the artificial turf, because it was a much more eco-friendly option and because many golfers prefer the real thing.
“The artificial turf did not give us the level of golf authenticity that we were going for and it just does not fit into the natural surroundings,” says Charlie Patton, owner of the famous family golf course located in Kahnawake, Qc. when asked why he made the switch.
As the years go by, the grounds take on a brand new life of their own. Maturing trees, fish ponds and more, is what drives me to want to come back to the course each year. I was anxious to see what gifts mother nature was going to spoil me with this year and I am happy to say, she did not disappoint. There was so much new life and growth, it was absolutely breathtaking.
”Golf is a good walk spoiled.” ~ Mark Twain
I could hear my heart beating faster as I prepared to tee off at the very first hole, and then with the sound of a ping, I was off. I held my breath as the ball flew through the air and sailed into a fast declining drop. To my fascination, I landed on the greens just right off the flag. The following 8 holes fall into the same pattern and continued throughout my game. I came to the end of my game with a good score, good enough to make me want to play another nine holes. I then looked at my golfing companion,and saw that he was probably thinking the very same thing, and this, my friends, is how my golf season starts every year. I hope to see you on Patten’s Glen Par 3 greens this year.
