After an awful winter that saw us get 119.1″ of snow (the most in the country for the season), it was nice to get out on the course on April 12th.
I went with perennial golf buddies Bob Tilton, Jerry Dufresne, and Dave Faugno. Of course, to fuel up, we needed to hit the Cracker Barrel in Sturbridge. Lynn joined Bob and I for breakfast of champions.
The opening day for golf was fun! The teams were Bob & myself vs. Jerry & Dave, with Bob playing the forward tees due to him being 82! I let Bob down with my play which was terrible (I shot 101 – my worst score in 4 years). Thankfully while we lost the front 3-2, we tied the back 1-1 mitigating the losses. I won’t cite the others’ scores (all better than mine), but suffice it to say that mud, swing rust, and unfamiliar greens added up to a lot of strokes for all.
It was $27 to walk for me and the rest rode at a pricey $53 (a surprise). The course was packed as everyone wanted to get winter over with once and for all!
Bob & I paid our debt, and then hit the restaurant for lunch. With stock car races next door, the sound of engines mixed with the Masters broadcast!
