Golf and

simple pleasures

One of my greatest pleasures of living in Park City these past 25 years is being able to enjoy one of the best municipal golf courses in the nation. But for some reason, the current food vendor at the golf course feels that we need $10 hamburgers, and gone is my ol’ favorite; a Braut with kraut and onions! These are just simple pleasures in a very complicated world and some times I wonder if this is progress at all…

The Park City Hotel is a beautiful facility and has a great upscale restaurant, but while playing golf sometimes you need just a simple inexpensive meal at the ninth-hole turn. This was possible these past 25 years but now it is not. I will have to check and see if Davanza’s will deliver direct to the "muni’s 10th hole."

When I asked the workers at the Park City Hotel cafe about the changes they said that there was a new food and beverage manager and this was the new offering. He said that they compared pricing with food items in the area, but I guess they did not check at "munis" — they must have checked only at private courses. Even when Adolph’s ran the club cafe there was reasonable pricing for good golf grub. I was told that the P.C. Men’s Golf Association has moved their post tournament dining events to the Radisson Hotel for the same reason. Maybe my best solution is to bring along the George Foreman Grill and hook it up to the golf cart.

Oh, by the way, the double cheeseburger at Soldier Hollow Golf Course is GREAT with freshly ground beef daily and only $5.95, but they do not have a buffalo burger like Park City Hotel.
