The Fleeting Days of Summer ...and the Approach of Autumn Golf

For many New Englanders, summer will always seem too short.

Winters tend to be cold and dark here, and sometimes drag on well past the official start of spring.

That possibility makes the final days of August somewhat bittersweet.  Particularly for the golfers among us.    

However, the prospect of a fabulous fall golf season... one that may last through November... can make a waning summer seem far less somber.   And that's exactly what I'm focused on.

After a summer that allowed me little time for golf, I plan to spend numerous autumnal afternoons on courses tinged with crimson and aglow with golden foliage.
