A Kentucky Dam Village Good Time

As the sun started to sink lower in the Middle Tennessee skies, I knew that soon the cooler and yes colder weather would soon be upon us.

Reflecting about this during a fall afternoon,  I knew I needed a weekend getaway of fun and sun soon, or I would have to wait until the following spring or summer.

Calling a good friend of mine, he too was up to the task.

We talked, schemed and settled on our plan; a golf weekend at Kentucky Dam Village. A little more discussing and we had our golf course of choice decided on, and a tee time.

Arriving at Kentucky Village Golf Course that Saturday we were greeted by their friendly staff; a couple of older gentlemen with firm handshakes, genuine smiles, and local knowledge on how the course would play that day. In the back of my mind, I knew it was going to be a great day whether I played well on the course or not, and also this felt like home, I’d be back.

Looking down the fairway from one of the tee boxes you can see that this particular hole is a generous driving hole with a somewhat wide open fairway. This is true for many of the holes on this course.


A challenging Par 5 awaits you on the 5th hole. After a a fairway with plenty of room to hit to, be precise with your second and third shots into the green here, or the bunkers will play havoc with your score.


A daunting little par 3 over a  small amount of water that could be a “spot of bother” if the wrong club is chosen and your shot comes up short.


Finishing the round on such a lovely day made me kind of sad, but filled with hope that I would see this gem again in the spring.

I also wanted to fill my stomach with some good food! And I was not to be disappointed. Off to the little local town of Aurora we went to in search of Willow Pond; for a plate of some of the best blackened catfish I have ever tasted, and bowls of never ending hush puppies, white beans and vinegar slaw. Between the friendliness of the staff at Willow Pond, and the food; that was well worth the trip itself.

Ok, great day of golf, my belly was full, it was a  fall Saturday here in the South, it was time to kick back in my room, and watch some college football before dozing off.

For an affordable, and very comfortable place to lay your head for an evening or longer; Grand Rivers Inn gets my vote.

Grand Rivers Inn

The Place to stay

Ms Veronika is a very friendly Innkeeper and she keeps the place spotless. Plus if you do want to venture out into the heart of Grand Rivers Ky, you are in the heart of downtown. Close to a theater and ice cream.

So in conclusion; if you are looking for a getaway weekend with plenty to do, Kentucky Dam Village would be a good choice. With plenty of lodging available around the lake, good food, and activities for all ages, this area provides scenery, relaxation, and some great views.

Enjoy your trip.

How Alchemy Can Easily Help You

Alchemy

Welcome to 2011!

Happy New Year to you!

Are you ready to “ride the wave” of personal and professional growth this year?

Is this the year you promised yourself to go to the “next level?”

It’s here in front of us, we have the intention and desire, but sometimes we lose focus, or direction.

But, I want you to remember, there is hope and it actually can be quite simple.

Imagine training your brain with the meaning of one word for success and personal growth.

And that one word is.

Alchemy.

Webster’s dictionary says it means…. “Traditional chemical philosophy concerned primarily with changing base metals into gold”

WOW! How can a definition like that have ANY affect on your personal growth and change.

I mean in reality, what is it and what can it do you?

To start this new year off, I recently interviewed Tam Veilleux from http://randomtamdom.com to explain this concept, and how we can use it to increase our personal and professional growth.

Here are a couple things we discussed.

Would you like to retrain your brain and learn how to use the delete key that lives within you?

Why you need to believe.

Also why “Feel” plays such an important part in your personal growth and change.

Remember, these are only three of the items we discussed, please join us for the rest of the conversation.

So please click on the audio play button below, (It’s only 18 minutes in length) and listen in on how you can create the change for yourself right now.

Trapper Sherwood; CMH
