Bar Harbor Times (Newspaper) - March 31, 1920, Bar Harbor, Maine
A Coli course must be difficult fro unreasonably so ii not Only the re Anile length and Fine turf Hase irs reputation but it t have its individual ties. It is that i wish to Call attention i in Why in the golfer s opinion Jebo links rank so highly. Course in length i inv of the courses where e Are played and it excellent As quot hey contain r,-oi3oriion of Bent grasses and Pio Nablo free from Clover which is tiie different holes or a re called Are so Laid out Short holes come near re placed in position Rasof Reat ast i. A Vic As Tivey Liis no tvo r in be Iong ones so As to Grive a in one outline of play. a Fri it also helps the mental p player himself. The a Aras Are so placed that by this method congestion is less fre erec. N re is arc / quot up Innis Are Safe and not penalized player either by the expert or re a Wium player. In this respect course is real Indi dual Jire and thought must he Given a a in i one thing alone As one is Apt to be dim cuties in the Way of the medium i five when trapping courses of Cham to hic character. In my opinion no courses Are not As popular As they a he be because of the fact that the Numier i players Are those who Iuar the average game and their measure is undeservedly spoiled by hav no a really Good stroke for them i Lea beg by a trap which was placed j o each the expert s poorer shot. This Tourse is also very fortunate As to the a character o its natural hazards such is Vater courses and Sand Hills. For no Goli course has nature done More i in regard to its land formations. We a Nave on this course fair Green which Var it iring nearly level from tee to Green is tost Hilly and Complex. Noin my opinion is interesting it is ait cult and in this respect the Kebo course is not wanting. I will Jos mention a few of the difficulties Van ice May not be apparent to the average player one of which is the condition. The prevailing wind Here i irom the quot West and if the quot observant pile Vodli notice we have just three holes out of the eighteen where a Westerly wind would help Dir. Etty the flight o f a bail on. All the other holes one must play into a head or sife wind which t3 the average player Are equally difficult. There Are also seven holes which hav3 mountainous foreground which tends to produce an optical illusion making the distances appear much Shorter thai they really Are. This fact is also neatly emphasized by the clearness of our summer atmosphere. Another Point of interest is the fact that i have often heard at the end of a match How or. Blank might have won if he had not fallen Short or run Over his putt on the third Green or on the sixth and possibly it might have been the 17th. Of course this difficulty might happen on any Green but it is in my opinion that the player misjudged his strokes on these three greens More than on any of the others for the reason that they Are almost always mowed in the same direction which causes the Blades of grass to lie in that same general direction thus making a different condition than exists on the other greens a Here the Angle of mowing is changed each Day. Another reason Why Many golfers nozzle their shots at Kebo is from the fact that the lies vary to such an extent on one Hole the Ball May have to be played Fromi a spongy lie caused by the Mucky so 1 underneath while on the next it May be of Clay or gravel composition which makes it necessary to play in a different manner to Gez the Best results. On several holes the play has to be made at very Steep angles which As a Rule causes the younger golfer and often the older much annoyance. In plaid no a stroke of this kind one is Apt to swing too upright on the finish of his stroke which is caused by the mental ambition to achieve loft on the Ball but really acts the reverse and puts an Over spin on causing it to cling to the ground and run like a scared Rabbit. Still another reason Why scoring is difficult at Kebo especially to one who is visiting us for the first season is on account of our extraordinary scenery which exists on All sides. This May seem to the average person ? Little far reaching but any real golfer knows that to play the Gan a Well his mind and Eye must be on the game and one who could Plaj at Kebo without Edward e. Hears Dward the easter monday Ball is going to be largely attended for the reason that it is the first big social event following the lenten season and also because those who attended the last dance Given by the George Edwin Kirk Post of the american legion will be sure to attend this one and to bring their friends who were not at the january dance. The. Legion orchestra of sixteen pieces which made such a tremendous hit at its initial appearance will again play. With new music singing numbers and other new features this orchestra under the leadership of quot Ike quot Perlinsky is going to make even a bigger hit than it did in january. There will be moving pictures Early in the evening. The pictures begin at eight thirty Sharp and will be run off before the dancing begins. John Ash and the other members of the committee on arrangements set a High Standard at their last dance and they will leave nothing undone to maintain this Standard and to improve upon it where possible. It is certain that every one in town who dances will be present and that the galleries will be filled Vith those who do not dance. To make Occa Ofrim of go Esit ii Teresi prominent speakers.

Some thought and Eye for the Mountain is and valleys which surround it is a bolshevik and not a golfer. These Are just a few of the Many features which Are found at the Kebo links and which make it so difficult and perplexing and yet so interesting. If the plans of the trustees of mount desert Bridge District Are carried out and there seems no reason Why they should fail May 30, 1920 will go Down As one of the biggest Days in the history of Hancock county. The new mount desert Bridge will be dedicated to the soldiers sailors and marines of Hancock county on memorial Day. The d education of this most fitting Monument to the service men of ithe county will be the occasion for the largest gathering of Hancock county folks for years. This is not a bar Harbor occasion and neither is it a mount desert Island occasion. This Bridge is to be dedicated to the men of Hancock county who were in their country s service. Returned soldiers and sailors from All Over the county towns will be present and their families and friends will surely be there. There will be a number of distinguished speakers governor Milliken has been asked to attend and to deliver an address. He will in All probability attend. The members of the state Highway commission will be present. Maine congressmen the master of the state Grange and other leading citizens have been invited. The Bridge will be dedicated and the Bronze Tablet put in place. Then will come the formal opening. It has been suggested that the soldiers and sailors of the county be the first to March across the Bridge when it has been formally opened. But this occasion will by no Means be confined to being a solemn occasion at which the people will enjoy but a feast of oratory. Another feast has been planned. A monster will be the feature of the Day. The committee on arrangements have agreed to have in readiness All that All the people in All the county can eat. They have further agreed to furnish All the Good Coffee that All these people can drink in other words this is to be in the nature of an All Day county picnic to which you May bring your own Basket lunch depending upon the committee for clams and Coffee. The committee says that there will be plenty of clams and plenty continued on Page 5 Many years prominent Bor business saturday funeral tuesday header arters for fed i o printing Eizo developing i n m t w h a Gordon amp Gilfe Allan proprietors try our a ild Cherry and flaxseed Gougis syrup to it 1-4l� a Iju a Zro we a i a Vil to Uati a it a Uia quot a i of of Rev.
