A different kind of launch at Captain's Cove G&YC

TJ Rocket Launch

We've all had a hoselrocket or two in our day. Some more than others.

But it's not often you get to see a true rocket ship while on the golf course. They do at Captain’s Cove Golf & Yacht Club in Greenbackville, Va.

As it turns out, the facility's Marina Club has a perfect view across Chincoteague Bay. Across the way is the NASA Wallops Island flight facility, from which all of the International Space Station's supplies are launched. 

Sounds like a great day, right? A quick 18 and a launch party.

Golf lost one of its shining stars 19 years ago today. What's your favorite Payne Stewart memory? #gonetoosoon #PayneStewart
