When golf becomes more than a hobby!
Once upon a time two golfers met on a golf course. They met because they were the only two golfers at the course that day.
Why? You ask.
Well it was about 40 degrees and raining, not to mention the 20mph winds. Well the two of us played all 18 holes that day and have been playing ever since.
And when you consider one of the best golf investments you have ever made to be a $100 golf cart cover, you know you have a condition called 'die hard golfers syndrome'.
Since we both owned cart covers we needed to find more die hard golfers to join us so we started the North Shore Hackers Golf Club.
Well, one guy joined us the first year and the three of us played the first NSHGC Club Championship in the rain, sleet, and yes snow. We were wise enough to play this championship on Oct. 31 2002 at the Mt. Washington Hotel & Resort in New Hampshire.
Gripping a golf club with mittens on is a special kind of golf, but we played all 18 holes and were all near death upon completion. And a winner was crowned.
However, if a Van del Velde wasn't pulled on the 18th hole there would of been a different winner.
After six years we have grown to about 20 or so and we enjoy every moment. Now with four major championships a year, scoring leaders and more we continue to grow and battle the weather as the slide show will show.
