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.
