Letters: Old duffers need a nine-hole discount

Dear Editor,

What a kind and thoughtful act it would be if the local golf courses would have a special nine-hole fee for us 75 and older battle weary duffers with tired legs. Eighteen holes even with a cart can take its toll both on body and fixed income. Eagle Valley offers a senior 18 hole10-round ticket for 80 bucks which is great, but when you’re nearing the 80 year mark, 18 holes is a bit to much. How about 10 nine-hole rounds for $40? Heed our plea, ye keepers of the valley of the greens. We love the game, we need the exercise, but 18 is just too far.
