White Haired Golfer’s Lifetime Dream-Pebble Beach
-As a White Haired Golfer your dream may be to play all the great courses- the Augusta National, the Old Course at St. Andrews, or Royal Troon, or Prestwick or Doral and the Blue Monster or Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina- or Asheville's golf course at Balsam Mountain, an Audubon Sanctuary course.
Interesting to note: Recent surveys indicate an interest in eco-friendly courses- “Going Green on the Greens.” More than two thousand (2,000) golf courses in thirty-six countries participate in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program which is all about education and then a certification program that promotes ecologically-sound land management and conservation of natural resources on golf courses.
In fact, in an article in “Golf Course Management” we read not long about the science of "enriching the environment of golf,” the importance of best management practices in the golf industry and environmental issues is a central theme.
White Haired Golfer’s Lifetime Dream Fulfilled: As the Masters at Augusta approaches, I can't help but think of Dad's lifetime dream -playing Pebble Beach. Dad had "un-retired" to Florida’s golf links and sunsets over the ocean but, like many of us who are now referred to as the Baby Boomer Generatin, back then, he simply do not retire... As he said, “You may reach the 18th Hole...and then decide to play yet another round.
Dad and his brother, Jim, (seen in photo) loved God, Family, the “Neighborly Way of Doing Business,” and Golf! Their dream, fulfilled only after they both had achieved white hair, was to play Pebble Beach the only public course perennially ranked in the Top 10 in the USA. “Arnie, Jack, Tiger, and Bobby Jones could have stood right there at the first tee,” Dad told us with a twinkle in his eye.
And right from that first tee, our white-haired Dad played the course as he has played his life...full-on and well!
