  • A trip down memory lane

    I was cleaning out some file folders and found the old score card from my first sub 70 round on July 23, 1999 (I thought that I lost it). Hunter's Glen doesn't exist any more and used to be on Hwy 50 on the way up to Bolton. I can still remember the slight nervousness when I teed it up on the 18th hole, a reachable par 5, knowing that if I birdied the hole, I would break 70 for the first time and I really wanted it badly. I was sort of hanging in there for the last few holes and pulled off some miracle up and downs to keep the hopes alive and my short game was bailing me out big time. I hit a great drive on 18 and hit my approach just short of the green. I caught my chip a little thin and the ball ended up about 10 feet above the hole and I left myself a tough downhill putt with about a foot and a half of break (couldn't have made it easy). My putt looked like it was going to lip out, but caught a piece of the hole and curled in. I jumped about 2 feet in the air like Mickelson did when he first won the Masters. What a feeling!! Although I have forgotten many of the holes and shots from that round, I will never forget that last hole and that putt. Hard to believe that this was over 20 years ago. Still brings a smile to my face.

    Belated Congrats, played many a round there at Hunters, never broke 70 though.
    The hole I hated most was that Par 3 - 10th, it always seemed to get to me, being very narrow and breaks impossible to read.

              Some things are nice to save. Great memory. I also played there many times. I liked the 10th. Despite the hands shaking on the tee lol. Beautiful hole.

                10 was the best hole on this course. 15 from the back tee was fun too. Miss this course.
