Shots from Golden Horseshoe’s Gold Course

I’m well spent after a long day of great golf at the Golden Horseshoe Gold Course, and touring the historical area here in Colonial Williamsburg.  Before I turn in and get ready to jump on a plane home, I have to post a couple of shots from today.

Below is the spectacular 16th hole island green.  This island green predates the 17th at TPC Sawgrass by decades.

The 2nd hole, a par-5, has a great approach shot over water.  Big hitters can go for it.  With conditions being tough and wet, that wasn’t an option for me.  Made a decent par though, the old fashioned way.

I’ll populate my image galleries for the Golden Horseshoe Green and Gold courses when the HOG World Tour returns to HOG world headquarters Monday.

I had the pleasure of playing the Golden Horseshoe Green course in Colonial Williamsburg today.

I had a fantastic time golfing with Golden Horseshoe Director of Golf Glen Byrnes and lady golf blogger “ShePutts.”  Yes, she can putt.  So can I, on #18, for birdie.  We don’t need to talk about the rest of the round much though.  Conditions were very tough with the course being wet and playing very long.

A review of the course, and surrounding historical area, is coming soon. But for now I have to call it a night.  I don’t know what time zone I’m in and I haven’t slept for almost 48 hours.

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!

Wow.  Look what I woke up to this morning.  We had a good 8-10″ of snow on the ground, October 27.  Guess the golf clubs are 2nd fiddle to the skis right now…
