Here is how it went... My friend, Rolf and I had a 7:45 am tee time at Bentwinds CC. Beautiful day, morning mist on the course. Great layout. Great conditions. We played in only 2:40... how great is that?
We went in early for lunch, had to wait for the kitchen to get ready. Had lunch, great food and service.
Then I had a board meeting with the Cary Y. After the board meeting, we went to Pinehurst to talk with Bob Hansen, co-founder of the Dormie Club and who happens to live in Donald Ross’ house on hole #3 on Pinehurst #2. What a treat! Bob graciously gave us a audio tour of the house that Ross built. This house is where he drew up his plans for courses, like #2, and how he slid across the office from his plans to his client and how he closed the deal. Great views from the house built in 1925. Thanks Bob, for the tour!
Then we went down the road to Pine Needles, home of the 2005 US Women's Open and a Donald Ross design. Teed off at 5:pm and finished about 7:45 pm.
What a day… a day that we will both remember.
