The Golfing Enthusiast

The golf bag has been taken out of the back of the closet and cleaned. You’ve inspected all your clubs. Your hands are itching, and you’ve taken to putting around the living room during the tournaments on TV. You’re committed to the love of the game, and all you need is a sunny day and your good golfing shoes, some gleaming white balls and the magic words: “The course is open.”
Arnold Palmer said, “What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive,” and many seem to agree with him. The golf craze is on the rise, and it’s no wonder, with its unique combination of the invigorating beauty of the out-of-doors, the competitive nature of the game and the relief a satisfying round of golf can offer from the stresses of job and family.
Fortunately, some of the best golf courses in the Northeast are right here in our backyard. If you are a beginner, a middling novice or at the top of your game, you will find something to pleasure you and challenge you at each of the courses listed below.
