The Causeway Club. The causeway as seen from Hole #4

Hole#8 – Par 3, 150 yards. Trouble left, right, and long.

Classic cars had been on the agenda for our first day in Michigan. We spent 12 hours eating, drinking, cruising (before drinking), and watching the procession of cars cruise Woodward Avenue during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in the suburban Detroit area.

We had one full day in Washington, DC. One Always Time for 9 team member had never visited our nation’s capitol. How do we visit Arlington National Cemetery, Lincoln Memorial, The White House, U.S. Capitol, Jefferson Memorial, Smithsonian, plus many more and still get in a round of golf?
