Recently I visited my daughter in Grand Junction and had the opportunity to play Devil's Thumb Golf Course. I have been playing golf for 50 years and have played courses all over the country.
I have never been so impressed with a golf course, not only the interesting and beautiful layout but also the unbelievable shape the course is in — especially considering the challenge of building in the middle of a desert.
I found it inconceivable when I was told there are those who are considering closing it. What a terrible waste. I can't imagine how anyone would allow such a thing to happen. I hope there are those with enough foresight and appreciation of something that is truly a work of art who will prevent this from happening.
