‘Twas the first day of autumn, when all through the shop
Not a member was stirring, not even that high maintenance chop.
The sweaters were folded by the door with care,
In hopes that cooler weather would soon be there.
The golfers were still snuggled in their beds,
While visions of birdies danced in their heads.
As I began to prep carts there arouse such a clatter,
I sprang from the bag room to see what was the matter.
When, what to my groggy eyes did appear,
But the superintendent, riding his John Deere.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
Mowing the greens and fixing ball marks left by a jerk.
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon let me know I had nothing to dread.
The humidity was gone and he had cut them low,
No longer would we hear complaints of being too slow.
As the first groups began to arrive and he rode out of sight,
I could hear him exclaim “Happy autumn to all – the greens are rolling juuuuuust right.”.
Welcome to New England’s best season for golf! .
