Another fun Member-Guest
There are few better success stories in Windom than the Toro Member-Guest golf tournament. Last weekend delivered more evidence.
It is a time when family and friendships are king. Many foursomes include fathers, sons, brothers, brothers-in-law and lifelong friends.
The Windom Country Club staff had the course and clubhouse in tip-top shape and the tourney benefits from a superb sponsor. Again this year, Toro generously donated four lawnmowers, plus door prizes for all competitors.
Saturday's ace
I was fortunate enough to card a hole-in-one on hole 9 during the tournament.
Joel Alvstad did a nice job with the story in our sports section, so I won't dwell on it. I'll just add that the reaction of friends and golfers was worth as much to me as the shot itself.
Dozens of people looked me in the eye and offered genuine congratulations. That won't be forgotten and speaks to the class and grace of those who attend the tournament, year after year.
