Laura Schweihofer’s e-mail said, “Here are a few things Ray and I like to do…we like the dinner and drinks.”   My comment is that you have to have lived in St. Clair most of your life to make this suggestion:

Pine Shores Municipal Golf Course followed by dinner at LaCroix’s Riverside Bar

Pine Shores was built in 1930 by Fred Hunter.  The website,, says this about the course, “This course’s somewhat-sloped greens are small and hard to read.  Even though the fairways are tree lined, the landing areas are still mighty generous.  Water hazards come into play on a couple of holes because the course is bordered by the Pine River.”

I always enjoy playing this course and like to carry my golf clubs when I do.  Something about playing golf the way it started.

If St. Clair has a neighborhood pub, La Croix’s Riverside Bar is it.  Its menu is typical for a local pub, but LaCroix does it well; and it is impossible to go there and not meet or make a new friend.
