Life on the Greens

(Athletics, Just for Fun, Class of 2017) Permanent link   All Posts
Glick Photo This semester, I found a great way to spend my free time—through the Academy Golf Club. Relatively new to the game, I had only played a few times my 3/c year, but this year I really got into it. One of the best kept secrets of 1/c year is the PE class: Advanced Golf. During 3/c year, all cadets take a basic golf class, and during 1/c year you can elect to take Advanced Golf. For this course, you are responsible for playing 10 rounds of 9 holes. Cadets who take this course are free to leave whenever there is no class or military obligation, which was a great opportunity to get away for a few hours each week and enjoy the New England autumn. After playing for the class, I began to play during my own free time and golfed beyond the required amount for the PE class. I discovered that the Academy has many avid golfers, and that there is a special deal at a local country club for cadets.

 

I spent many hours at the country club this semester, and really enjoyed learning the ins and outs of the game with officers, chiefs, and fellow cadets. I have played many courses in the area over the semester. On Veterans’ Day, a few of my friends and I played a local country club for free! Golf has become my outlet for stress this semester, and I am glad that I stumbled upon it! Over this coming winter leave, I will be spending my time with family at a resort in the Dominican Republic, and I can’t wait to check out the courses down there.
