It is a Small World After All
By: Bill Brady
Good fun was had by all, and there is surely something to be said about the camaraderie that can develop among team members while bashing that little white ball around.
Bear with me a moment while I relate a story that will once again prove that it truly is a:
Small World After All
A few years ago I was at the meeting at Coral Key in Dixon cove which of course is now part of the Mahogany Bay Carnival Cruise Ship Project. After the meeting I was sitting with Mr. Albert Jackson and the conversations soon turned to the Golf course being developed on the North side of Roatan opposite French Harbor.
I asked Albert, if he knew who had designed the course. He told me he thought it was a man by the name of Dye - or something like that. I asked him was it Pete Dye and then Alberts said, "Let me call Danny" - Danny is Danny Mc Nab, Albert's son in law and an associate of the Project that includes the Golf Course. Albert handed me the phone and I immediately asked Danny if it was really the famous Pete Dye who designed the course and he confirmed that it was!
Now let's flash back to the late 70's... I was back in North Carolina on vacation. My best friend and golfing buddy, Tim Wright, invited me to Hilton Head, where he now lives, for a golfing weekend.
Hilton Head is a Resort Island off the South Carolina coast famous for its Golf and Tennis Clubs.
As teenagers and beyond, Tim and I have played all the great courses of the Carolinas including the U.S. Open Site - Pinehurst #2 and the challenging Uwharrie National Course near our hometown.
"Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect.
It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented."
