Berger Completes Personal Golf Quest

We all need goals to make life worth living, right? My friend Dan Berger accomplished one of his several days ago by playing all 53 public and private golf courses in Westchester County. Don't know what will keep him going now, but I'm sure he (or his wife) will think of something.

Chuck Stogel, shown here presenting Berger with his award (?), has kept careful tally of the mileposts along the way. He says "The course log includes clubs with two courses, such as Winged Foot and Westchester CC, the par 32 executive course at Pleasantville Country Club and the very worthy par 31 Executive Course at Sleepy Hollow designed by CB Macdonald in 1914." He adds that it took Berger and playing partner Michael Kimmel (who provided this photo), a mere 4 hours and ten minutes to play the final round at Sprain Lake, a public course in Westchester County. Scores are available, but not really publishable in deference to the players' egos.

Berger hosted a lavish luncheon for all the media who showed up to cover the event, which consisted entirely of Stogel. Some of us weren't invited, which is another story that is best left untold.

Among many other books, Dave Donelson is the author of Weird Golf: 18 tales of fantastic, horrific, scientifically impossible, and morally reprehensible golf
