I’m now prepping for the next stop on the HOG World Tour. Tonight I catch a redeye flight east to Colonial Williamsburg. There I’ll be taking in a heavy dose of US history, walking the same streets as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Patrick Henry.  I’d better brush up on my US history.

Also on the agenda, is golf at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club’s Gold and Green courses. Reading the list of accolades and awards for these courses is an all day event. Additionally, they were designed by some of golf’s most “historic” golf course architects, Robert Trent Jones Sr. and his son Rees Jones. Last but not least, the Gold and Green courses are designated as Audubon sanctuaries. I guess I’d better be careful not to take divots which are too large.

I look forward to meeting Golden Horseshoe Golf Club’s Superintendent Rick Viancour as well as playing golf the club’s Director of Golf, Glen Byrnes.  I’ll also be looking forward to swinging a club for a couple of days, as there is currently snow on the ground here at home and the courses are closed!
