We Played A Beautiful Picturesque
South Carolina Private Club
Wow was this a treat! We played Sunset Country Club in Sumter today. This was a treat because this is a private club and does not usually allow golfers from the outside world. Thanks to Scotty Letien we were incited as guests.
The golf course was in great shape, and the members were so friendly and even joined us in the bar afterward watching the golf tournament and smoking cigars and of course having a cold one! Yes you can smoke cigars in the bar! Luckily Al Gore is NOT a member.
We started out with doing some warm up on the practice putting green. Then we did some work in the practice bunker. Off to the driving range to get the engines rolling then out to the first tee.
The greens were fast but they rolled true. The golf course was not overly difficult but it wasn’t a cake walk either. The course was built in 1922 and has all the charm of maybe Golden Horseshoe in Williamsburg?
They were great to have us and incited us back so the next group will get the opportunity to enjoy what we did this week. I look forward to going back.
We’re Doing A Three Day School In
Sumter, SC And It’s A BLAST!
We started our first three day golf school in Sumter SC and we’re having a blast! We spent all day yesterday at The Links at Lakewood, (if you remember Scott Letien as the Director of Golf at The Crossings for about 13 years) and we had the run of the place. Scott is great! We did a ton of work on the driving range, a ton of short game on the practice putting green with chipping too, and then we played about 15 holes until it got dark.
Today we’re going to a private golf club to play, Sunset Country Club. I hope these bone heads behave at the private club?
I’ll let you know how it goes today.
