King of Golf Cartoons: ‘Longest Course’
Copyright © Jerry King. All rights reserved. Used with permission.
WHAT’S THE LONGEST COURSE you’ve ever played? How about the longest course you’ve ever walked?
I remember a golf course in Victorville, California, when I played on the high school golf team. A hilly layout in spots, the Green Tree Country Club wove through high-desert neighborhoods. The walks from green to tee were long expeditions across asphalt and between stucco suburban houses. It was a test of endurance, even at age 17.
If I remember correctly, there was also lots of OB, not good for someone with a shaky driver.
