I wanted to do on my trip back home was to take pictures of a memorial bench dedicated to his memory after he died in 1997. So, Mark and I hopped on his cart and went out to the 7th tee-off area. Of course it was cold and wet.
Heading from the Clubhouse down through the 7th green.
This was one of my favorite holes: short, with a couple creeks to avoid, not to mention some of that sandy stuff.
The bench dedicated to Herb's memory. Thanks to the OVCC for a very fine tribute to a great friend to many.
This was the area that Herb had his heart attack. He had just shanked a shot and went down. He died a week later.
The 7th hole tee off. From here you can see the 6th hole in the center on the far hill. OVCC' s longest hole and toughest. I hated this one, and seldom did well. The 6th hole goes from fence to fence and takes a week to complete.
7th tee off and green. One of the ideas I had once was to do a coffee table for OVCC with shots of each hole, then intersperse it with stories from the old-timers, complete with pics and biographies. Alas, never did, but it surely would be a losing proposition.
