Why did the beer-drinking golfer cross the road?

        If you find yourself crossing a county road during a round of golf in the state of Virginia, make sure you guzzle any open cans of beer before you do.  Otherwise you may never make it to the 19th hole.  That is because the state of Virginia “prohibits the possession of an open container of alcohol by the driver and/or passengers of a vehicle,” according to the Drive Smart Virginia web site.

        I encountered the sign below at Blue Ridge Shadows Golf Club in Front Royal, VA, today.  The golf course, designed by Tom Clark, was next to the Holiday Inn where I am staying tonight.  I’ll share some photos of the challenging and distinctive course in the next day or two.
