2013 was the year that my reconnection to the game of golf took on a whole new dimension.
I was given the gift of a lesson with Butch Harmon in Las Vegas in the spring, as well as other rounds for my 40th birthday. To my delight, the birthday celebration seemed to go on all year.
I started playing rounds on business trips, and took three buddies trips (the first of my life) to Long Island, Bandon and Northern Michigan. I also checked off bucket list courses in Chicagoland – Shoreacres and Westmoreland. At the end of the year, I pulled the trigger on membership at the Kingsley Club (another first).
I ended my 40th year feeling very grateful, and yet wanting more golf adventures on great courses.
Here are the 2013 highlights:
Special thanks to Golf Course Gurus for helping me memorialize several of the rounds with their photographs. This photo wall in my home serves as a reminder of how lucky I am to have an understanding wife, great golf buddies, and the opportunity and means to spend time at special places like these.
Looking forward to many more years like 2013 to come.
