Wabunsee Pines golf course is a community golf course that is next to Lake Wabunsee in Alma County, Kansas. This golf course is mainly kept up by volunteers. From what I understand there is one full time staff that oversees the whole project. It took the community volunteers about ten years to clear, mow and actually bring the whole thing together. Now, this course will not be featured on the PGA or LPGA anytime soon but well worth the time if you are looking to play and have a great view while brushing up on your skills or just wanting to start playing. The whole thing operates in the honor system. Meaning they have a mailbox and a sign in sheet to keep track of who comes in and who borrows a golf cart.
My wife playing golf for the first time. At least golf that dies not include windmills, waterfalls or any other unnatural obstacle that may have a motor.
One of the wholes on the back nine that you can see a portion of the lake and farm land.
Cottonwood Falls is a sleepy town just west of Emporia, Ks. As of the 2010 census there are only 905 people that live in Cottonwood falls it self. For such a small number of people inthe town it just happens to be the county seat for Chase County.
In this day and age it is a sleepy town with not much going on. There are a few mom and pop boutiques and antique shops but many of them are not open but maybe a few days a week. One of the more well known shops is a leather working shop. They can work on old baseball gloves and make things custom. They even sell whole cow hides if you are in the market. In town there are not a lot of places to eat. They have a subway and the local hotel. The hotel is very rustic and the food is good. But do not count on good service unless you are a local.
The court house is original and very nice. For the most part it is mainly city offices any more. People are welcome to go in and look around.
The town even has a beagle run if you have a beagle or a dog that needs to get outside and explore the area. They do have human trails to for the humans to walk/run. There you can see waterfalls and would be fun for children, pictures or if you are in need of a place to cool off.

A Roman temple and settlement in modern-day Lebanon that have been damaged by war, disrupted by looters and encroached on by farmers still yield information about the site’s history, a new study finds. By studying pottery fragments, archaeologists determined that the site was in use from the first century until the seventh century, and then utilized again during medieval times.
