I really don’t play golf. I have had and continue to have an interest in golf. It’s just that it is an outdoor sport that takes all day and competes directly with fishing. In my position as President, I was invited to many Hospital Foundation golf fund raisers and, indeed, we held our own tournaments to cultivate broker relationships. So, I decided, I really needed to take up golf. I joined Edgewood Country Club, got some new clubs, booked lessons with the pro and started practicing regularly. Little by little, I started to develop a game. Usually in a tournament with “captain’s choice” or “best ball” rules, I would contribute several strokes to the team. If handicaps were involved, I could make a large contribution because mine was so high. West Virginia has some wonderful golf courses, including the Pete Dye at Clarksburg which is part of the Nationwide Tour.
Edgewood also has a very traditional club with good dining in a comfortable atmosphere.
