The town’s golf course, the “Griff” is wonderful, challenging, and my husband made a “hole-in-one there! There are three private country clubs in the back country if you wish to join.
The Audubon Headquarters and Study Center is impressive and presents a learning and discovery experience of wildlife among it’s 686 acres.
"At Greenwich Polo, I feel like “Pretty Woman” with my hat, dress and a blanket."
Hiking and riding trails in the Babcock Preserve among the 297 acres is so delightful.
At Greenwich Polo, I feel like “Pretty Woman” with my hat, dress and a blanket. A basket with champagne & cheese, and I am ready to “Giddy Up!” Every Sunday in the summer for a small fee, it’s a delightful day of people watching, legendary teams, professional players and champion polo ponies. With 2,000 spectators flocking from the tri-state area, Greenwich Polo host many dignitaries and celebrities.
The Greenwich riding trails have over 150 miles of trails. You can join this club, GRTA for $90 a year if you own or have access to a horse. There is only one store north of the parkway, which is the Round Hill Store, built in 1801 with a creaky front porch. Once, I met the charming Mel Gibson having his morning coffee. His home was just a few steps away. I also remember that before cell phones, this was the only place that had a public telephone where realtors would call for appointments for 25 cents. Sometimes on a Saturday, a realtor would have to wait in line.
The beautiful nature of “backcountry” is what makes it so special.
