I always look at them as a cool place to ride. Never taken a dirt bike out there, but we used to ride the courses where I lived in Michigan with snowmobiles every winter. Some of those huge elevated tee boxes make nice table tops. :laugh:

And the good thing is with all the snow on there we never tore anything up. :cool:

My son is a golfer so it's interesting when I drive him around and we're thinking about both golfing and riding the course.

I don't think they should make it into a mx track I just think about me and riding bud with brand new tires and are bikes set up perfect ripping around haveing a great time, But turning it into a mx track is the closest thing so I voted for that.

There must be something to the golf thing. Perhaps there are so many courses because they make a lot of money? I would also bet that there are more people making mega-bucks playing golf than riding.

I think you have to appriciate other sports for what they are. Not everybody digs riding so they might look at a track or trail system as a waste of land. Even within our sport there are sub-groups like MX, HS, Enduro, Trials and trail riding that not everyone appriciates even though they ride.

yeah, but you gotta admit, Pat, they call it "golf" cuz all the other four letter words were used up.

I golf a lot, but I'd still like to see a golf course a quarter mile away turned into an awesome MX track.

I think ... "if I could just replace the cart with my CRF .... "
Best of both worlds. And yes, more reason than ever not to hit it in the woods.

there is (was) a golf course about 1/2 mile from my house that will soon become a housing development. they have let the grass grow up and one fairway is being used for soccer practice. ahh if i were an impulsive teen that could use youth as an excuse... but no, i have to be responsible...
