Sometimes my job has some pretty good perks. Last week I was offered to play in a client appreciation golf tournament at The Architects Golf Club in Pohatcong, NJ (right across the river from Easton, PA). Adams Outdoor Advertising, one of the local billboard companies with a branch in Lehigh Valley, was my gracious host. The weather was a little iffy that morning, but it actually turned out to be a pretty nice day out there.
I've played Architects Golf Club several times, and although it's challenging, it really is a "must play" course. Architects is definitely unique for our region; it's a 6,863 yard, par 71 course and each of its holes was designed by a different architect.
The course was a little wet when we played due to the rain the night before but all-in-all it was in great shape. One of my favorite things about Architects Golf Club though is the setting. When standing at the absolutely beautifully done clubhouse, it is like you can see miles of rolling hills that makes the perfect backdrop.
The clubhouse area is also something to talk about. I love the elegant rich wood that adorns the interior. The Thyme Restaurant & Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a meal or to hold an event. The windows lead out to the incredible views and to a bluestone patio area with seating. The food has always been good too and the staff is very accommodating.
So here's my shout out to Adams ... thank you for continuing to host your golf tournament at The Architects Golf Club, regardless of the economy. And to Brom, sorry I played like a rat! I'm glad we didn't finish last! And, to any of you who haven't had the chance to play Architects Golf Club ... what are you waiting for?
