Edgewood Golf Course Hike – Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Report by Bob Ciganek - Our ADK hike took place just off Crow Hill Road, Laurens. Twenty-one rain-be-darned happy folk were escorted on and about the outskirts of the former Edgewood Golf Course by course historian and caretaker Rowland Dutcher. Rowland's brief tour of the historic clubhouse was an unexpected addition to a morning of abandoned fairways, greens, forest and spectacular views.
