In 1823, the Blackstone Canal Company was chartered to build a connection from Providence RI to Worcester MA along (and sometimes through) the course of the Blackstone River. Within 3 years, the canal and its 48 locks were completed and the “Lady Carrington” completed its first passage over the entire length of the canal. During its short 25 year history (1823 – 1848), the canal spurred the further development of industry along the Blackstone. The arrival of the Providence and Worcester Railroad in 1844 along the same route spelled the end of the canal as rail service became the preferred method of transporting goods.
I have booked 4 T-times. The course has given us a fabulous price of $69.00 which includes a cart (normally the weekend price is $85). We will t-off beginning at 10:57 am and then every 9 minutes. This course offers beautiful views and some challenging holes, and of course, a GREAT 19th. Please respect the other members, if you need to cancel, please do so no less than 48 hours in advance.
If you are a non-ASGA member you will be required to pay a surcharge of $10.00, payable to the host (Eugenie) the day of the event.
I look forward to seeing you there.
