Not me personally, but a compliment for the course. Cottonwood Creek is my "home course" here in Colorado Springs and I have put a lot of my own time into course maintenance and also running some league nights. So today I showed up at the course to move a couple of pin positions. Lately we have been trying to keep the course pretty challenging so that every hole is not an ace run and there is at least one hole that could trip you up with a bogey. So I had just finished moving a couple of baskets with the help of a friend and then I had to clean up glass from a broken bottle near one of them. When I got up by hole one I struck up a conversation with some guys who were from out of town. They like to travel around and play different courses. They said "nice course" and I said "thanks". You don't hear that all of the time so it is nice especially when it comes from some non-locals. Our course gets bad mouthed a lot simply because it is very popular. Because of its popularity there is often some trash on the ground and you will probably find at least one group of idiots out there. But overall we have worked hard to keep the place in good shape. So it was just nice to hear one "thank you" for a change. And they were even happy that they got to play a couple of new positions for their second round. So some kind words made it all worthwhile. It also made me realize that the course is still a decent place to play despite the naysayers.
