Commentary: M’s relishing playoff chase

Gamble Sands: A focus on fun

I was excited to be invited to play the newest golf course in the Northwest, Gamble Sands, just a few miles north of Brewster, on Friday. This event was held for VIPs and media one day before the course opened for public play. (I don’t know which of those two groups I belong, so I’ll just presume both.)

The River Dogs have a long history of success, and this year is no exception.
