Earlier this week I had the good fortune to attend the Past President's Dinner at Carolina Golf Club. It truly is a wonderful tradition and something I look forward to every year. During the evening I couldn't help but think of an older post where I wrote about the occasion and a missed opportunity to express my thoughts and feelings about being the superintendent of Carolina Golf Club.The roller coaster that is winter in the Carolinas continues. 🎢 Tomorrow’s shotgun going to be a bit chilly too! 😳🥶😂 #cltwx https://t.co/Rxs8Cg282B— Matthew Wharton (@CGCGreenkeeper) December 18, 2019
I searched The Greenkeeper archives early this morning for that post and discovered ironically it was exactly six years ago today. Which turns out to be the last time Christmas Day fell on Wednesday like it does this year. The post dated Friday, December 20, 2013 expressed thoughts and feelings that couldn't be summarized any better today. So kickback, pour a cup of coffee and enjoy Quick Update, Reflections, and Merry Christmas!
I hope you enjoyed that look back. Just like six years ago we hit the road in the morning for Virginia. Four Christmases in four days before we make the trek back to the Queen City on Christmas Day, wish us luck! And just in case Santa didn't see my wish on Twitter I've embedded it here so fingers crossed he sees this.
🤔 Dear Santa, T200s please! 🤞🏻 https://t.co/If3uGj4tnP— Matthew Wharton (@CGCGreenkeeper) December 15, 2019
