Who knew the golf course I played in Mexico served as host for Golf Channel’s Big Break Mexico in 2013. I may need to go back an rewatch it on YouTube.
Golf course was beautiful. My golf game... not so much.
It wasn’t Vermont or New Hampshire but it was still very pretty. And windy.
A sad, sad day. I went to Oakland on a beautiful fall Friday afternoon to play golf. Unfortunately, when I got there I was informed the course is going to close for good on November 1. I have played hundreds of rounds there with some of the best people I know. I’ve seen kids grow up on the course and so many teachers/coaches come and go, but not before they spent a lot of time at Norton Knolls. It changed ever so slightly over the years, had new owners, and I moved on, but it was still a great place to go back and play golf.
I made my only hole-in-one on #8. I found out Shannon was pregnant with Ashton after coming home from Norton Knolls one Sunday morning. I’ve been lucky enough to play “better” courses and have been a member of “nicer” courses, but still during this year off when I can do anything I want... I had Norton Knolls down as my #1 golf course to play.
Thank you to Jim, Harold, Terry, and Ez. Thank you to Norton Knolls. It will be missed.
If you love golf, Leatherstocking should be on your list. It was built in 1909 and it feels like it.
I'm Michael Smith and I hope to have a very productive midlife crisis over the next 500 days. Some people buy a sports car, I'm going bowling.
