The Bridge Golf club
The Bridge, which opened in 2002 and is one of the newest clubs in the Hamptons, has an initiation fee nearing $1.5 million. Yet it is anything but a hidebound, traditional club. Wearing jeans, cargo shorts or a cap turned backward is not only OK, it's encouraged, if that's how you want to express yourself. The glass-walled, modernistic clubhouse (pictured) looks like a turbine engine spun out of control. The most spectacular views of the Rees Jones course and Peconic Bay are not from the dining room but from the expansive locker rooms, because that's where members hang out most.

My only regret was not seeing “There Will Be No Miracles Here” sign sooner. Such an apt saying for most of us and this game. The biggest, most direct, conspicuous reality check on a golf course I’ve come across. It begs the question though. If there aren’t miracles here, what exactly can there be? Does that take out hope? Optimism? Are we to settle, become resigned to our lower, mediocre place in the game? No. Actually, to hell with the sign. I’ll tell you if there will be miracles or not. In fact, each time I get the ball in the air is a miracle. That bounce of the ball in the right direction, taking that perfect roll to the hole, perhaps that will be the time it falls in.
