More than a golf course

I often hear conversations about the cost of membership and the direct correlation of rounds played. This type of valuation of a country club membership needs to go far, far away. Most country clubs have done a poor job of communicating the value of membership, and now are beginning to send a new message into the community. Forget the networking and business opportunity for now (which should alone pay your monthly dues), and take the golf course. We received over a foot of snow here at Briar Ridge, and the golf course is now the most beautiful and magical place on earth. Our property is free of sound, no planes, no trains, no automobile noise, just solitude. Yesterday afternoon, my daughter and I took to the snow on an awesome snowshoe adventure. The birds sang occasionally, the inside of a cattail was explored, and scene after scene of pure beauty was locked away in memory.
The ice rink is being cleared off today for those who like to skate, the golf course has enough snow (more than 3 inches) for skiing, please avoid greens and tees, and it has plenty of snow for fort building, snowman making, or just family time.
Hopefully my photos will inspire you to take an adventure today.
