Well, it's officially my last weekend in Colorado Springs, Colorado!
After 13 years with Lockheed Martin as a Program Release Manager, I've resigned and accepted a Systems Engineer position with the COLSA Corporation. My day-to-day job is working at. Eglin AFB testing Air Operations Center software on behalf of the Air Force.
The house is packed, the new job is waiting and I'll be leaving on Monday for the Fort Walton Beach area, in the Florida panhandle. We bought a house in Niceville, Florida. Yep, that's a real place....
It's 6-1/2 miles from my office and 3 miles away from what will be my 'home' course. That's the Eglin AFB Golf Club, with 36 holes of golf on the Falcon and Eagle courses! As you can imagine, there are lots of great courses in the area. I'm really looking forward to year-round golf!!

So, if there are any members of the GolfBalled Nation in the area - let me know! I'd love to explore the new courses in the area. I'll be 'off-line' for about a week while we get things moved and settled. By the time I'm back, there should be lots of new data from Club Wars! Until then ... take care!!

I will attest that Niceville, FL is a real place. I lived my formative years there and it is undoubtedly my favorite place I ever lived. My father spent his last years in the Air Force at Eglin before retiring there. Even though my parents are no longer there (they both unfortunately passed in the last 3 years), I still make it a point to vacation in Niceville at least every other year around the 4th of July. Eglin Golf Course is where I cut my teeth on this great game and play at least 1 round there every time I go back. It is somewhat unfortunate that the "real Eagle Course" went away about 10 or so years ago and was replaced by a much eaier version. Still a challenging layout, but the 10 - 12 fett bunkers walls are very significant green undulations were severly flattened during the course revision. Still saddens me to play it because I grew up playing it when it had far sharper teeth.

Good luck with the move!
