Joining us at Rosario Resort on New Year's Eve were the Dalen Meurs family, all the way from the Loenen aan de Vecht in the Netherlands! I googled "Loenen aan de Vecht" and found that it's claim to fame was the earliest traceable mention of the game was a game played in Loenen aan de Vecht. In his book "Early Golf," Steven van Hengel describes how the game of Colf or Kolf was played in 1297 near the castle of Kronenburg. The players had to hit the castle door in as few strikes as possible from the Court House by hitting a ball with a stick. It sounds like everyone from Loenen aan de Vecht likes to have fun! It looked like the Dalen Muers' certainly had fun on Orcas Island. It was great meeting you all and thanks for visiting!
