Frank Carter felt bitter as he took in the beauty of Potash Country Club from his seat outside the pro shop. He hadn’t always been like this. As a boy, he remembers the excitement he felt when he set foot on the grounds for his first job: a caddy.
Back then he knew every golfer of the club—the finest players, the struggling hackers, the cheaters and drunks—caddying for each of them at one time or another. Now some fifty years later, the popular use of golf carts has made the demand for his services obsolete; but he still sits in his spot outside the pro shop waiting for the odd caddy job.
This explains why, when young Tommy Wilson started hanging around, Frank began reminiscing and sharing club stories of a bygone era. Through the telling of his humorous and sometimes poignant stories, Frank relives the joy of life that he had growing up and Tommy learns more than he ever imagined about this small-town New Hampshire country club.
