I just saw this yesterday in a wonderful article by Noted Golf Course Architect, Michael Hudzan about the beauties of our Game. He designed the course where the U.S. Amateur Golf Tournament will be played this year, Erin Hills. He is also responsible for the incredibly pragmatic and effective design of Meadow Links & Golf Academy, where I give S.uggs U.niversity of G.uided G.olf S.uccess Lessons. Cincinnati Golfers are fortunate to have this 'Top 10 Short Course In America' here in Cincinnati at Winton Woods.
These words about our fantastic 'Golf' are absolutely wondrous, and over 100 years old.
It is a science—the study of a lifetime, in which
you may exhaust yourself but never your subject.
It is a contest, a duel or a melee, calling for
courage, skill, strategy and self-control.
It is a test of temper, a trial of honor, a revealer
It affords a chance to play the man, and act the gentleman.
It means going into God’s out-of-doors, getting
close to nature, fresh air, exercise, a sweeping
away of the mental cobwebs, genuine re-
creation of the tired tissues.
It is a cure for care-an antidote to worry.
It includes companionship with friends, social
intercourse, opportunity for courtesy, kindliness
and generosity to an opponent.
It promotes not only physical health, but
