Golf Fireworks

The New Jersey State Golf Association will host their 95th Open Championship in a couple of weeks at Rockaway River Country Club in Denville.  I bring this up because their 96th Open Championship, as announced in 2012,  will be held at Galloping Hill Golf Club.  Coincidentally, also in what might be the same month next year, Baltusrol will be hosting the PGA Championship (one of the Majors of golf) with elaborate plans already set.  How will Galloping Hill compete?  We just might have gotten a clue.

According to a Union County press release yesterday, parroted by today, we could be looking at a new tradition:


So in 2016, while Baltusrol is manicuring greens and grooming turf to get their course in immaculate condition for golf’s elite, golfers at Galloping Hill might well be negotiating cherry-bomb divots and, if their ball finds the woods, sloshing through a urine hazard.

    Little guy cannot keep up with the cost of living. Pension and healthcare keeps rising, almost as fast as the county taxes but raises do not. I know we have new trucks, fireworks and food truck events to pay for as well ice rinks, but save a little for the the little guys.
