Golfing and Boating in Leesburg, FL

Rick had the chance to join a local golfing group that meets each Thursday at the Baytree Country Club. This is a great, smaller course that is very challenging since the fairways are narrow and there are a number of hazards to avoid.

Rick is ready to go! He had a good round and almost got a hole in one (4" away from the hole!) Maybe next time.

Baytree is a nice community and has an attractive clubhouse. We meet in the proshop before teeing off and I have enjoyed getting to know the guys in the league.

Another enjoyable activity we had taken part of is cruising on the Harris Chain of Lakes.
We partnered with Rick's parents on this nice 22' pontoon boat which works great. Propelled by a Suzuki 90 hp outboard, the boat will really step up and move, although most of the time we enjoy sedate cruising.

This gives an idea of the waterways in the area and there are literally hundreds of miles to explore. In fact, you can run all the way to Jacksonville, FL and the Atlantic is you wanted. We will be exploring the famous Dora Canal soon and post some pictures of that.
