Italy is a beautiful country full of art and culture with monuments, churches, landscapes, and rich agriculture. All small towns have a castle and a story to tell especially in Tuscany and Veneto which were both gateways to my travels. It seems that in Italy art is in the blood of all architects, designers and artists both past and present generations.
Having the opportunity to experience this trip filled me with a great sense of thankfulness and appreciation for many things.
I am thankful that I was able to blog about the trip and share my experiences with other people interested in golf. I am thankful that I was able to spend so much quality time with my wife and experience so much history and culture along side her. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to explore the country of my forefathers and find my roots.
I am also extremely appreciative of my assistant, Roberto Cruz, and the maintenance crew at Southern Oaks for the exceptional job that they did maintaining the course while I was away.
