NORFOLK — While most non-golfers don’t know A.W. Tillinghast from A& W Root Beer, for those who swing the sticks in a determined quest for par, “Tillie” is a big name in the golf architecture business. It’s a treat to play one of his courses.

LIME ROCK — Mostly fine weather over Labor Day weekend made this year’s vintage festival at Lime Rock Park a win-win event for everyone. Racers had safe conditions for driving and showing their lovingly cared-for elder automobiles. Visitors were able to sit on the grassy hillsides around the track and enjoy the racing, or walk Sunday’s concours, without umbrellas. And attendance was high for the five-day event.
