Sumner Golf Course Fall

by

The old golf course located North of Sumner is a great place to visit any time of year.  The first thing you will notice is the lack of golf.  I am not sure how long the golf course has been abandoned but my understanding is that the City of Sumner purchased the land to develop.  However the land is in a flood plane and aparently development is not an option.  Now the land sits vacant as nature reclaims the once manicured golf greens, ponds and sand traps. The paths all remain and it is a popular place for joggers and pedestrians. In the fall the trees are turning colors and the golf course is a great place to visit.  

Magic of Fall

I took this shot into the sun.  The sun rays shining through the branches of the trees created one of those magical moments for me.

Sumner Golf Course Pond

There are many small ponds at the old sumner golf course.  I saw some kids fishing in one of them.  Not sure if there are any fish, but maybe I will go back and try it out someday.
