Hooked On Golf Blog

This past weekend the Hooked on Golf Blog World Tour visited the fabulous town of Leeds in southwestern Utah. I’m not sure but I don’t recall seeing a single stoplight in Leeds. It’s that big of a town.

I happened to stumble into the KOA Campground in Leeds, quite an interesting place. Don’t ask me how or why I was there, or why I was stumbling. It was at this fine tourist destination that I learned the sad news. American golf has suffered the loss of yet another great golf layout, The Links at Leeds. This links was widely considered one of the best examples of campground links architecture in the world.

Back 9

It’s sad to see this once-great layout turning to dust; returning to its natural state (cement with dirt, weeds and a couple of cow milking cans).  This tragedy may have been avoided if the course tried FootGolf, or maybe some USGA “initiative” to grow the game. Those always work.

RIP Links at Leeds. I’ll be playing you in heaven. Actually, I’m probably going to hell, but I digress.
