  • One of my oldest friends Doug called me last week and gave me an invitation to a golf event that he was a sponsor to on January 30th, 2016. I had just skied a few days before and I was saying "golf in the snow" that sounds like fun. I took him up on it and we met early on Saturday for our tee time.

    The golf outing was the 13th Annual United Way Chili Open Golf Classic. Before he picked me up, I called him early in the morning and said what do you wear to this. He said to me " Do you have ski clothing? I said "Yes I do!".

    So off I went armed with a seven iron and a putter. There were 27 holes of golf with a tee box set up with a plowed area stretching down the middle of the fairway with plastic grass as the green and a flag, each hole was 40 to 110 yards. We played a scramble or best ball off the tee. The weather was blue sky and perfect temperature. As we progressed I realized that there was some game involved to this fun day. When you tee off the orange ball, if is not hit perfectly, it wound up buried in the snow. You find your ball by looking for oblong ball locations indented in the snow. Chipping was made a little better by placing your boot behind the ball and stepping hard to give the ball a spot on the ledge of your boot imprint. Sometimes a snow (sand) blast out or a deftly played chip to the green.

    The putt became a group team effort with smoothing of the green, building of ramps to the green itself and the area around the cup. We did see some guys whose bag include a shovel, rake and broom along with a bottle of scotch - they were serious repeat players! We played 18 holes - the course was set up for 27 - and decided to head for lunch at the beautiful Fair Grounds Conservatory. We were treated to the full blown country band R.E.N.O. playing super country music and rock 'n roll with a little jazz thrown in.

    The event raises about $30,000 each year for families in distress that need a little help. Along with the music was some of the locally donated Great Hot Chili served up by the various Rotaries of Sussex County. Prizes were everywhere; the beer and wine flowed. A lot of fun was had by all. This is why I love Sussex County, it does not get any better. A community that comes together in camaraderie to help the less fortunate.
  • There are many dining establishments of all types in Sussex County. But Roseline's Farm and Bakery on Route 565, just 1/2 mile from Rt 206 in Augusta, is now open again for the season. They raise honeybees and grow herbs and veggies on the farm alongside Concord grapes.

    Stop in and try one of their generous portions of flaky-crusted quiche, or a cup of one of their daily homemade soups. They serve breakfast and specialty sandwiches all made to order Tuesday - Sunday from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. And leave room for a few seasonal cookies, or a slice of pie or quick bread for dessert. The rainforest certified coffee served at Roseline's is maybe the best cup you'll find in Sussex County. Whole quiches, pies and jars of honey are also offered for sale.
