September 2017.  "Who's got it better than us?  Nobody" - Jim Harbaugh.  The quote pretty much sums up this post.

I SUGGEST THAT WE PAUSE FOR A MOMENT

ADMIRE THE BEAUTIFUL VIEW

COUNT OUR BLESSINGS

I've been fortunate to play twice.  So, how did I get on?  My friend is a member and graciously invited me to play as an unaccompanied guest so that I can play with my usual foursome.  Much appreciation DS!  RC
