Editor’s note: The following letter accompanied this submission of “Where’s Your Aspen Times?”

Dear Editor:

In writing this in reference to our recent golf trip, eight Aspen residents got to play some of the best courses in Scotland. Thanks goes out to Jesse Graber, our great trip leader, for his hard work, whisky expertise and getting us home safely.

Also, thanks to our pros, Jack Small (Roaring Fork Club) and David DiMartino, head pro at Aspen Golf Club.

I enjoyed David’s fine play and passion for the history of this great and difficult game and his compassion for others and providing some fun and light moments and memories. David’s a class act, and Aspen is lucky to have him involved in golf and the community.

And finally, thanks to my son, Gary, the high commissioner, for putting this group and great trip together.

And thanks to our British friends, Stephanie and Chris, Marie, Lou and Anna, who drove four hours from England to give us all gifts and spend some wonderful time with us.

Scooter LaCouter
