Golf Scorecard History 101, New Brunswick - Set #5

Golf Scorecard History 101, New Brunswick 
Set #5 
Covered Bridge G&CC to Golf Bouctouche

Flag of New Brunswick, Canada

Facts about New Brunswick:
The inventor of the ice cream cone was born in Sussex corner- the Dairy Capital of Canada, mid-way along the Fundy Coastal Drive. Locals tell the story of baker Walter Donelly who made a bad batch of dough. He was at a loss with what to do with his hard, crispy pastry. So, he ran next door to the ice cream parlor….and the rest, as they say, is ice cream cone history.

Fish stories abound in the Miramichi River in the heart of salmon country. The river boasts the best salmon fishing in the world. Just ask American test pilot Chuck Yeager and U.S. Army General Norman Schwarzkopf- two of the many famous anglers who have waded in the river.

New Brunswick musicians made history in May of 1907 at the Nickel Theater in Saint John. They were the first to accompany silent moving pictures in North America.

The world's longest covered bridge was completed in Hartland in 1899. It's 390 metres ( 1,282 feet ) long and spans the Saint John River. There are 62 covered bridges in the province. Many of them are in the Sussex area of Kings County- the Covered Bridge Capital of Atlantic Canada. Be sure to make a wish as you drive through.

If my numbers are accurate there are about fifty courses in New Brunswick.  Following are some scorecards from a few of their courses.

Ellington Ridge Country Club, Connecticut

Ellington Ridge Country Club
Ellington, Connecticut
The 105th in my golf course tour series 


Over the years I've had some relatives who were members at Ellington Ridge and assumed, based on their comments, it was a nice course.  Eventually I had an opportunity to play the course thanks to their head professional Tony Rowe and the club professional at the club I work at.  I was quite surprised as the course was even more beautiful than what I had heard about it.
