First ever visit to the Sunday River golf course and I was impressed.
Shot the final round of the Maine Amateur and was glad they gave me a cart. We, the members of the media, are not allowed to drive ourselves as in years past some balls have been run over. I can see that happening and just as well. Not knowing the course, it was a blessing.
From there I had to find a feature photo for possible use on the front page as we didn’t have much in the way of stories to illustrate. I remembered the covered bridge on the Sunday River, was only a mile or so from the access road, so I headed over there. As I was driving up, a family was packing up their car with tubes and swim gear. Bummer. A few other cars in the area, so I ventured down the path, only to find a young couple embracing on a sand bar. I headed back to my car and about to go look elsewhere. Just then, another car pulled up and four kids with tubes and bright swim suits came gushing out. Mom was ok with me taking pix, so I hung around until they walked upstream and floated down.
