The Society will have a dinner at Sedgefield CC with Kris Spence discussing his work at this course.
The Society's annual meeting was well attended by over 50 Society members from October 4 - 7. The event included play at four of the wonderful courses created by or remodeled by Ross in the Chicago area. The golf began at The Beverly Country Club on Tuesday October 4, then Exmoor Country Club, Skokie Country Club, and Evanston Golf Club on Friday. Society members enjoyed the event organized and well planned by fellow members Pam Allen and Dave Jongleux with the support of the fine staff at each club.The annual dinner was a special coat and tie affair at Exmoor on Wednesday evening which included an interesting presentation of the course history by Exmoor member Don Holton.
The annual meeting was wonderful with four superb courses under light blue Carolina skies October 15 - 18. Click on Annual Report for a summary of the golf by Steve MacQuarrie. Golf began in the mountains at the Roaring Gap Club on the club's last day of the season, moved west to Mimosa Hills and then east to the Queen City to play Carolina GC and Charlotte CC.
