This was our first trip to Fairfield Glade. Seventeen Cummins Good Guys attended:
Wendel Hauck graciously handled all of the arrangements for this trip and did an excellent job.
We played the Bear Trace on Monday at 5,895 yards, Stonehenge on Tuesday at 6,202 yards, and the Heatherhurst Brae course
on Wednesday at 5980 yards.
The consensus is that the first two courses were too difficult for our skill level while the third course was just
about right. The scores somewhat reflected that sentiment with the average scores for the three days at 97.5, 103.3
and 96.3 respectively. Adding to the difficulty of Stonehenge was the policy of "cart path only" that not only slowed
play, but also wore down the players, pushing up their scores.
I noticed in the report of the 1998 Litchfield trip that in four days only three players were able to shoot under
their handicaps playing the Litchfield Country Club, the River Club, and Willowbrook. So maybe these courses weren't
so tough after all.
I any case, the weather was perfect and the scenery was beautiful. A good time was had by all the attendees in
