GOLF, according to Woodrow Wilson, is “a game in which one endeavors to control a ball with implements ill adapted for the purpose.” To James Reston, GOLF is “a plague invented by the Calvinistic Scots as a punishment for man’s sins,” while Mark Twain called GOLF “a good walk spoiled.” And perhaps one of golf’s most famous devotees, Bob Hope, sums it up best when he said “If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s golf.”
To the Professional Golf Staff at the Spring Lake Country Club, golf is the game of a lifetime. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to be involved in golf realize that the frustrations, disappointments and rewards of each round will only last a moment compared to the friendships that are formed for life. We welcome you to the game of golf, and look forward to the opportunity to assist you in your enjoyment of the game.
