Algonquin Country Club has always been a favorite of the golf league and our host, Flip Cady, somehow arranged for some awesome weather and great course conditions. We have fortunately been able to play this course a number of times but I know that there are more than a few members, yours truly included, that still haven’t figured out how to play #10, a difficult, dog leg left par five, with plenty of fairway bunkers, a water hazard awaiting your second shot and out of bounds down the entire left side. I think I’m going to try three 7 irons next time I get the chance to play there.
Low gross honors go to John Guilfoy with a smooth 79 and it should also be noted that only one out of 16 was able to hit the green on the closest to the pin hole. Maybe we should have selected something a bit shorter. And lastly, a special thanks to Flip for the wine served with dinner. Rumor has it that he actually charged it to Harold Kalde for canceling at the last minute.
