Besides disc golf in Louisville, what to do

I've got a trip planned around my 45th high school reunion in West Virginia. This includes three new states for courses, which I've decided based on comments in this forum. There's a 9 hole course...

Just wait until you young guys are old enough (or rich enough) to retire and be able to play every day. Well; in Texas you can play every day throughout the year. I retired at age 56 (almost 7...
