Daniel Webster once said he would enter on no encomium upon Massachusetts for she needed none, however besides the history one might add the glorious colors of Autumn and the creations of a young Donald Ross as inducements to join us for our 2011 Annual gathering. Not only is Massachusetts where Donald Ross first worked in the United States, but it was an interest in the restoration of his Boston area golf courses that led to the establishment of the Donald Ross Society.
The itinerary this year is a full one, but offered as an a la carte menu so that members and their guests can join us for as much or as little golf as they might choose with the cost pro-rated accordingly. Some may wish to take a day off from golf to visit historic Boston. There is no other place in the United States where you can take in the rich history of America’s Revolution undefined the events that led up to the historic break from Britain and the brave people who shaped our national government.
The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile redbrick walking trail that leads you to 16 nationally significant historic sites, every one an authentic American treasure. Preserved and dedicated by the citizens of Boston in 1958, when the wrecking ball threatened, the Freedom Trail today is a unique collection of museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a ship, and historic markers that tell the story of the American Revolution and beyond.
Of course, there are many hotel options in the Boston area. The suggested hotels listed are close to our dinner locations in the various clubhouses.
