As the end of the year draws near, and the 2017 golf travel season comes to a close, the H&B team finds itself reminiscing on the abundance of memories we had the honor to be a part of this year. Many will be found within the pages of the annual H&B Yearbook, which in the coming weeks will hit the mailboxes of our Members of the Forces who traveled this year. Others are found by scrolling back thru the H&B channels on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, and recalling the memorable moments that rolled in throughout the year.
Major Haversham calls these updates Field Reports, and what follows are 17 of his favorites from the 2017 travel season.
