Carol's Epic Road Trip: Day 15 - Mules National Golf Course

Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.
On Friday, day 15 of my 60+ day road trip my new friend, Charlene, from Blue Springs, Missouri and I drove out to Warrensburg and enjoyed a lovely day playing golf at Mules National Golf Course.

Our tee time put us off behind a group of guys participating in a Bachelor Party but they were just having fun and two groups offered to let us play through. We zipped around the course in less than 3 1/2 hours and were in the clubhouse enjoying adult beverages and a hamburger before we knew it.

The greens were recently sanded and we had no high expectations for our putting prowess but we did get to enjoy a legitimate birdie shot when I got a 4 on a par 5. Other than the aerated and sanded greens the course was in great shape.

It was another amazing day on the course with my new friend, Charlene, from the awesome Facebook group of Women Who Golf.

Hi Carol... there seems to be no shortage of beautiful golf courses to play as you travel across our beautiful country. And also no shortage of beautiful new friends.

We just had a Guy's Weekend near Carson City.  It is lucky you were not stuck behind us and, the real trouble maker group, in front of us.  Our golf day was considerably longer than 3.5 hours, but it was still fun and the backdrop was gorgeous.  Look at this beautiful, yet brutal hole.  Not many hit the landing zone!  It is really fun hearing about your journey and watching you have such a great time.

Hello Carol - names of various places makes me curious.  That is especially true when I read of 15 Miles National Golf Course.   I am sure the back story is interesting.

Hello Carol - curiosity got me and the Internet helped out again.  Of course, I misread Mules National Golf Course as "15" Mules. . .   when fifteen was actually the number assigned to your journey. 


Oh --- reading carefully certainly is important.  Anyway the origin of the name suddenly became less important but the fun you experienced is always good to see.  🙃

Good to hear about your new friend and all the adventures you are on.  Still haven't picked up my sticks and really have no desire to do so.
