King of Golf Cartoons: ‘Longest Course’

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.

Longest course I have ever walked would be the only course I have walked. My home course in Ohio. I really wanted to be a walker, but I can't play as often as I like and carry my bag too.

Jerry King is a wonderful addition. Well done!

Love the cartoon...every course I've ever played has been the longest course I've ever played when I was playing it.
