Things that make us happy about golf. The smell of fresh cut grass. A toddler with a plastic club and ball on the practice green. Pulling into the parking lot and turning off the cell phone from arrival until departure. Walking up the first fairway just as the sun comes up. The sound of a made putt rattling around in the cup. The thump of a well struck bunker blast. Playing in or just watching a family golf outing. Curving a shot exactly as we pictured it. Finding our ball “barely” on the right side of the out of bound area. Adding up our score and realizing we didn’t play as badly as we thought. Getting through a round with one ball. Birdieing the last hole. Walking up the 18th fairway just as the sun goes down. Golf Magazine, August 2019

Happy Spring everyone! Wedgewood is 50 years old and throughout the 2019 season I plan to share some history from Wedgewood’s first year — 1968. In April of 1968, 600 seedlings were planted including pine, sycamore, and poplar trees. In January 2019, Wedgewood experienced an ice storm and then in February heavy winds and I think all 600 trees had damage. Our theme this spring at Wedgewood is “pick up sticks”.
