Is it my imagination or does it seem like every course I play at has a boat parked on the property somewhere?

Are you talking about decorations or using the course grounds to stash a boat ?

If you mean decoration . The course near me has a couple boats with sails as landscaping decorations. Liberty Lake . Using the nautical theme I guess.

The Pirate's Cove across the street from where I used to own a cottage resort on East Grand Traverse Bay had a sunken pirate ship in its roadside water basin. I "played" a round there once when the owner was trying to get me to join him in a mutual development. Does that count?

I'm not a golfer, but my daughter's husband is president of the Michigan PGA.

Ever go golfing and wish you had a boat?
You coulda gone fishen on the Emerald Vale this weekend.
The ponds flooded with the Midwest storms and washed a bunch of catfish up on the 6th hole.
Kinda funny to tee off and watch the birds flying off with catfish they just picked up off the fairway.

Here's one of my shots off a soggy fairway..........

Whatyd doin?
HA, for starters I'm learning to play golf, but at that particular moment I was thinking, "this swamp water is going to hose me!" And it did.:

Thanks for the MA, and the compliment.
Maybe you should meet up with me and give me some golf lessons.

Trust me, when it comes to golf, I have very little to offer other than laughing with you rather than at you! I would love to play a round with you Trekchick, I am sure we would have a great day! Just don't expect to be impressed with my golf prowess.

Shouild I wear swim trunks?

Bud, any time babe!
Hopefully we can pick a course where boats, catfish and swim trunks are avoidable.
A course where collard shirts are not a requirement.

Just where on the property?

I am assuming that you are referring to a boat that is dry-docked somewhere on the property in which case I have never seen that on a golf course on which I've played. However, I have seen small rowboats stored on the lakes/ponds on a couple of courses I've played (I assume to make for easier retreival of errant golf balls for re-sale in the pro shop) and I have seen, but not played on courses where one is required to take a boat to get from the tee box to wherever your tee shot landed.

Look at hole #8 here

or

this bit of golf course engineering

Most of the ones I see around here are parked at the maintenance facility, but they do sometimes show up in weird places. Rowboats intended for use on the property don't count.
