Autumn In New England

Autumn brings to the courses an especial beauty.  The maples flare a pinkish red, the hickories turn a buttery yellow, the oaks withdraw into a rusty brown.  The trees gradually show bare branches and a fresh new breadth of light washes over the fairways.

Views deepen; forgotten perspectives reappear. The lower angle of sunlight brings the swellings and swales into fuller relief.  The course has been ripening toward this season of golden harvest.
