At least there are some windy cart paths at this course & I should be able to do a bit of creative driving in the cart! For now, let’s get on with the show!

That’s it for this week’s brief CoW. Be sure to swing by next week for the next edition. Bloggers, remember to get your submissions in by Saturday to be included.
