If you have ever golfed at Terry Hills, you are familiar with the bridge leading to the 14th green. It has become the iconic hole of the golf course, used in many of our marketing materials and so popular with brides and grooms for wedding pictures. Now there is a new bridge!
When the second nine holes were constructed, number 14 was to have a green mostly surrounded by water. You could still get to the green without a bridge, but why not build a bridge! So in 1986 two very large telephone poles were delivered to the area and the bridge came to life. This walking bridge served the 14th green for 32 years, but weather took its toll on it and it was taken down this spring.
Harvest Wine & Food Dinner
Our next installment of wine dinners was the Harvest Wine & Food Dinner on November 1st. This sold out event featured five delicious courses paired with five amazing wines highlighting the unique flavors of fall. The festive room was filled with good food, good conversation, good wine and great friends. Wine tidbits and information were shared throughout the evening, but not to worry, there were prizes for those paying attention!
In asking Head Chef, Mike Devay, what inspired him for the menu, he said “I love to eat, so it’s only natural that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday!” This is the third wine dinner for Chef Devay and he chose to theme it around the upcoming holiday. “Every time we do one of these dinners, I try to bring new and creative courses to the table that most people haven’t tried or don’t think would taste good”, stated Chef. He sure hit that one on the head this time around!

Another Guest Blog Post by Jim LaBuda, Assistant Golf Pro, recapping last week's Can-Am Cup . . .
Terry Hills hosted the 11th Annual Louie and Richie Can-Am Cup on Monday, September 25th, 2017. The match play style tournament consisted of a Canadian team and an American team with 41 players on each. The teams were made of up ladies, men and couples at all skill levels. The Canadian team has been the defending champions for the last 3 years. On this beautiful fall day with temperature in the mid 80’s, the American team was looking to upset their winning streak.
