For those of you reading this you may have been fortunate to either travel away from the coast or be away from the coast already. I know what you will be thinking as you read my account of yesterday, "That is a long way to go for a round of golf" and I agree, but it was worth it. We had attempted to play on Wednesday but moved to Friday due to rain. Good thing because it rained hard and even though the forecast was for clearing skies Thursday and Friday it never happened along the coast. It was spectacular however inland where we went. Connie O'Doherty was a member of a club outside of Hartford called Ellington Ridge CC back in the 80's. He still has stock and can play the course. He raves about the place often reminiscing about his time there and so decided to put a foursome together and make the trip. It is a little over two hours from Woods Hole and about the same from Saratoga Springs NY where our old friend and former member Mark Yale lives. He rounded out the group and we enjoyed a beautiful sunny day and a fine golf course. We were stunned as we headed back to see this cloud cover and wet roads. The temperature gauge plummeted and the realization hit that the lousy weather never left this area. It was a long day and the course was tough but the company and weather was great.
