My friend Tim (Member) wondered why I didn't write about our outing in 2009 on his course.

I retrieved the old scorecard, these are my notes: Traditional old style Country Club course at 6,149 yds / 122 / Par 71 with "Side by Side" tree-lined fairways. Ended up shooting 45/40 w/ 38putts in a 4.5hr relaxed afternoon. Greens are on the average small side that are rolling at 8-9 and very true with well kept sand traps giving room to miss a little and still get up & down. Had to look very hard to find a ball mark on the greens and divots in the fairways that were not repaired. Treated with respect from arrival to departure which didn't surprise me for a 100 year old Club that is still keeping the golfing "Tradition" roots alive.

Would guess this would be in the $60 - $80 range for a weekday outing. The course was proof that if you treat your golfers with respect, they'll treat your course with respect.

Maybe I'll be able to return this summer for another outing. (Hint)

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Expensive and worth it
