There is only a few more weeks until golfing season is through. Before you get too wrapped up in school with the kids, and hunting, make sure you come out to Bird Homestead Golf Course for a nice round of golf. Larry Hamilton and Tom Walsh have been working very hard all summer long to get this course in such beautiful shape. It is truly amazing to see how nice the course has become this season. Don’t take my word for it, come and enjoy it for yourself on mile 11.8 on Funny River road.
