Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Evidenced by my crisp little 88 at this primo track last week, I need some help. For a longer sex drive, I’ll go here. But for a longer golf drive, I’ll be here.

Honestly, I didn’t even know the City Pointe Golf Center (on Stemmons Freeway, just northwest of LBJ Freeway) existed. But apparently it has Dallas’ largest driving range -- 500 yards -- the only joint big enough to hold the invasion of golf’s biggest hitters. At the free outdoor golf show, fans can check out the latest equipment, get computer swing analysis and, of course, gawk at dudes who can smoke 400-plus off the tee. A little embarrassing for punk who hits it 275 on a good day, but, come on, maybe we’ll learn something. Or, more likely, pull something.

On Saturday the hulksters will compete in a $4,400 Texas Two-Ball competition, and on Sunday they’ll try to qualify for the 2008 Remax World Long Drive Championship. Don’t tell me you’d rather watch this? --Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
