Pool Rooms With Golf Games - 06-23-2019, 07:38 AM

I miss playing golf in a pool room. I get over to California Billiards to play some on the 6 x 12 once and a while, but it is a 2 1/2 hour trip each way and hit or miss to get a game. I played golf all over Southern Ca from the late 50ís through the 90ís and have played hundreds of games on Big Bertha in Bellflower over the years at three different locations before they retired her and replaced the table with one with pockets so tight it ruins the game. I donít mind tight pockets, but the table they have now at Hard Times, Bellflower is so tight your ball literally has to be within a half inch or so from the pocket to make the ball. That is not golf the way I learned to play it.

I will be 80 in a couple weeks and thinking of taking a road trip next year to visit some rooms on my bucket list. I want to do this while my health is good and I can still play a little. I enjoy ring games and will play heads up if I think I have any kind of chance. I will also play cheap one pocket with players that are not a pain in the ass to play. Players that know me, and there are many, know I am not a nut hunter and love to play.

There used to be rooms like Family Fun Center and Colfax Billiards in Denver, and the Farmers Daughter in Salt Lake City where you could walk in the door and get a golf game. Where are they now? The Phoenix area had the Golden Cue and Golden Eight Ball, gone now and maybe one 5 x 10 snooker table in the whole area left.

I know there must be some rooms left where you can play some golf. Where are they?

Thanks, I have heard about Magooís, and it is on the list. I think Gabe Owen used to play out of there.

Gabe played at the Billiard Palace which was owned by same guy at one time. Its the only poolroom with big tables left in town. Big joint, 10-GC4's, 3-Diamond 9's, 10-Diamond bb's, 6-Valleys and the snooker table. Food, bar, pro shop. If you're in the area come on by. Shooter's in Olathe(4hrs north in KC area) has a nice Brunswick snooker but i'm not sure if they play golf much. Great spot to go to.

Mr. Henderson

College Billiards has a table similar to big bertha with not so tight pockets. You can get a game with
no problem.

Thanks, I have not been to College since the late 80ís when I worked in Rancho Bernardo for a while. Lots of players around then including Swanee and Roy The Cook, but no golf that I can remember.

Yes Sir, back then they didn't have a table, they have had a table for about 10 years now with continuous play. Also about 8 billiard tables. Come on down and play golf and 3 cushion.

There's a pool hall right next to the rum runner in Vegas nice 6x12 that I've seen some big golf games in.

Agreed, Hendy. Happy birthday!

Only golf in the mid Atlantic that I have heard of is the outside kind.

Golf on a snooker table? Do you stand on the table and putt the ball around?

Hey Johnny we're the same age for at least a couple of weeks.

Just out of curiosity, did you ever play at the Pool Palace in San Bernardino? I got my start in 3C there in the 80s and they had a 6x12 with an almost perpetual golf game going. Long gone now, and it was about as dumpiest a dump can be, but still, good times.

They recovered that table at Bellflower with some heavier commercial
cloth, and the corners weren't done well. IMO a lot less golf action on
it vs. back in the day.. that table used to always be going.

Indy used to have a really nice daily golf game, and the table time from that kept the rest of the room open.

Jarvis, Oaks, York, and many others come in and out.
