Enjoy a private golf partnership located in northwest Chester County Pennsylvania! Stonewall was conceived over 26 years ago by a group of golf enthusiasts who longed for golf in its purest form - without tee times or restrictions, where players are encouraged to walk the course. Rather than another good country club, Stonewall was conceived as a golf club with excellent courses available for Partners whenever they wanted to play, challenging for the superior player while manageable for the average player. What Stonewall is not, is perhaps just as important as what it is. The vision was simple. A quiet, unpretentious, walking course in the countryside where one wouldn't have to worry about a full tee sheet or encroaching development. The facilities at Stonewall now include two eighteen-hole championship golf courses, each with practice facilities, two golf houses with overnight accommodations, a golf shop, and restaurant facilities. This package includes a threesome for golf to be scheduled at a mutually convenient date with Chuck Hurchalla. Does not include caddy fees. Includes lunch before.
The Philadelphia Inquirer states: Designed by world-class architects, these three remote private facilities form an unlikely golfing haven in the midst of a rugged, rural landscape that John Updike, the novelist who was a native, once described as "acres of knolls and undulations draped with grey fences." A golf-only facility where those devoted to the game can play an unhurried round in unspoiled surroundings, Stonewall is intended as an isolated golfing retreat. Tom Doak easily fit Stonewall's two courses into a 1,200-acre dairy farm, utilizing its massive stone barn as a clubhouse. "Having the chance to build the first tee and 18th green right up against that stone barn was a unique opportunity," said Doak. And Stonewall has attracted out-of-town members, adding two cabins and several clubhouse suites to accommodate them. "It's just a great piece of ground."

One 2107 EnRoute Pinot Noir of Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA- "There is an abundance of cherry, plum, and raspberry aromas upfront, progressing into floral and mineral notes with tobacco leaf and toasty oak. " The nose instantly fills with luscious aromas of juicy ripe red cherry, raspberry, star jasmine, with a light spice and mineral earthiness that while subdued, is still stark. Upon entry, the palate is silky and layered with flavors that are reflective of this wine's aromatics-bright red fruit, rose petal and a touch of forest floor. The 2017 "Les Pommiers" boasts an exceptional purity of fruit, flavor, and expression as it culminates in a bright, mouthwatering finish.
And one 2015 Goldeneye Pinot Noir from the Confluence Vineyard is located in the heart of the Anderson Valley, adjacent to the headwaters of the Navarro River. The vineyard offers a unique range of soils, from benchland to gravel strata, as well as varying exposures including hillside slopes and protected pockets. This natural diversity allows us to choose clones ideally suited to each specific vineyard block, ultimately yielding grapes possessing a variety of expressive flavors and characteristics. The opulent Pinot Noir produced from this valley floor vineyard displays voluptuous red fruit components and plush, supple tannins.

The inquirer states: "Perhaps their biggest marketing advantage is the geography, the gently sloping hills and expansive green fields that provided such inviting canvasses for their big-name architects. Each feels like a golf island surrounded by a sea of open space. With 230 acres to work with at French Creek, Hanse, the Malvern-based designer who built the 2016 Olympic course in Rio, was able to separate and individualize the holes. "You're kind of in God's country," said Thad Fortin, French Creek Golf Club's owner. "You can relax. It's very different from what you'd get at a Main Line club. You see things on this course and you say, 'Wow, where am I? Nebraska? Iowa? Scotland?' "

A must-hear choral concert performed live during COVID times?
The possibility of hearing cutting-edge music performed live these days without any compromise is pretty unusual these days.
The Crossing is a world-renowned 24-member professional chamber choir, led by Donald Nally, that specializes in modern, but accessible and socially relevant music, most of which have been written for them. They've made more than 20 recordings and have twice won the Grammy for Best Choral Recording.
To keep performing during COVID times, the group purchased 24 Bluetooth loudspeakers, one for each singer, that the musicians activate from a (safe) distance. The speakers are placed along a path and small groups of audience members, one to seven in number, will take a 20-25 minute walk along the route to experience the music.
For The Crossing at Christmas, the choir will be performing a new work by the New York based jazz saxophonist and classical composer Matana Roberts that will honor the life of Breonna Taylor. This will surely be among the most remembered Philadelphia musical events of the one-of-a-kind '20 - '21 concert season.
The Crossing has provided Hope four tickets to this extraordinary event that will quickly sell out when tickets are offered to the public next month.
The performances will take place on December 18, 19, and 20 at Stoneleigh, the 42-acre Otto Haas estate in Villanova, now owned by Natural Lands Trust. Warm beverages provided!
This is a cast bronze sculpture by Monyo Simon Mihailescu-Nasturel, better know as Prince Monyo. This sculpture is of a girl watching a boy standing on a ladder picking an apple. It was created in 2005 and purchased directly from the artist who at the time had two galleries in Palm Beach. The sculpture is in excellent condition and signed on the plate.
Prince Monyo startled the art world with such mammoth accomplishments as his 65 foot "Flames of Life" which stands in front of the Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas, his rotating 48 foot "Eternal Flame" and "Flames of Life" and "Reflections of a City" which is a 16-foot diameter circle which rotates twice a minute on its own axis. In addition, he blends his mechanical engineering skills into many of his works including his artistic creation of life-size children who appear suspended in motion in a moment of time at play in his highly acclaimed series entitled "Children at Play". The "Eternal Flame" was purchased and donated to the "Valley Forge National Park" where it remains on permanent display today. Prince Monyo is the only living artist so honored. The 48-foot " Flames of Life" and "Reflections Of A City" were purchased by Mr. Jack Beltz, of Memphis, Tennessee. Mr. Tabas and Mr. Belz each own over 100 pieces of Prince Monyo's works.
