    Hanover County Country Club

    Hanover Country Club

    Hanover Country Club is located 4 miles (6.4 km.) west of downtown. The club is in the middle of a private neighbourhood, the hills, and the South Anna River. I know what you're thinking: the thought of me within 50 miles (80 km.) of a country club is unthinkable and not just because I don't play golf well. I have been here a couple of times for the Reagan Day Dinner and other such fund-raisers. So, I'm most familiar with their dining rooms for private functions. They offer 18 holes of golf, a practice facility, a driving range, and a pro shop. Besides golf, they have private tennis courts and an Olympic-size swimming pools.

    Day Field in preparation for a game

    The Yellow Jackets is the nickname for Ralph-Macon College's athletic programme. In football, they have won the Old Dominion Athletic Conference title eight times. For more than a century, Randolph-Macon has met the Tigers of Hampden-Sydney College in the oldest small college football rivalry in the South, traditionally known as The Game. For a week before the big game, the entire Randolph-Macon and Ashland community comes together in celebration and support of the Yellow Jackets. Christian and I passed by Day Field on as they were putting down chalk boundaries in the turf in preparation for a big game the following day against Johns Hopkins University. Sadly, Christian and I still had a lot left to do so we missed the game. The home team would go on to lose 14-21.
