Following our arrival on a drop-dead spectacular day in November, 2007, my playing companions and I were escorted by our host to the clubhouse for lunch. Turning left from the cottages I paused for my first vision of the groundsthe 10th tee, the 9th green, the 18th green and the first tee box. My eyes slowly moved across the panoramic presentation finishing at the putting green. The presentation was as I hopedsimplistic draped in history.
To the first tee with a little anxietywell struck tee shot, solid second just short of the greenchip to 9 feetthree putt. Rememberline and pace and leave the aggression in the bag!!! Starting with hole #2 I employed a method I had learned years beforeon fast greens (and these beautiful surfaces had a speed of 13-14) putt the ball with the very tip of the toe of the putter. Much to my pleasureonly one more three putt on day one. The day, the company, the courseit has never been better. I have been blessed (and I could not wait for day two)!
