The 10th Annual Summer Solstice, an event whose stature has grown with each year.

From humble beginnings in 1987 with four players - Gord Grant, Danny Malanchuk, Brian Smyth and Paul Gaffney - it now stands alone in the golf world for its exclusivity. Only 20 of the world’s finest raconteurs, gourmands, trenchermen and, yes, golfers, make the field.

Three days of shotmaking and shot drinking in the beautiful Adirondacks was three days to remember, if you could.

World Headquarters of the Summer Solstice is the luxurious and elegant Swiss Acres Inn with our hosts Sally and Herbert Stoerr.

The 10th Annual lived up to its promise to be the best yet, it was a golf holiday both enjoyable and memorable.
