Putting the "Civil" in Civil Engineering







Our freshman class of civil engineers went on an outing today. (You might want to check out Johhny the Bobblehead's blog.) There were about 18 of us that went. It was a lab for one of our courses. Called Freshman Orientation for Civil Engineers. We went to Montague CG in Randolph VT. Our professor feels it is important for us to learn and understand golf as it is a very important part of doing business. Plus he wanted us to learn how to be civil on the golf course.

Website is www.montaguegolf.com

Very nice course. I hadn't been golfing in several years so it was fun to get back out and hit a few slices, a couple of trees and the green actually. We had a shotgun start and played best ball. Our team scored about 42 I think. I wasn't the scorekeeper. I just provided the entertainment for my teammates. Fortunately for several of us our math class had been cancelled for today. Maybe even more fortunate for our math professor!!! She might not have thought it was very civil of us to come to class after consuming several carbonated malt beverages.

When did you ever ever ever play golf? And don't you know you're supposed to wear a blindfold!! When you graduate why don't you make the Scammon farm into a golf course--that was always one of your father's dreams.

Nice form..... and golfing without carbonated malt beverages wouldn't be real.
