Geocache Description:

Located on the grounds of Osprey Shores Golf Course, previously known as The Belmont. This is a very historic property going back to the 1600's. The area was the site of a French cemetery, early windmill-farming location (late 1700's), and early experimental farm of the Hartshorne family. William Clarke moved from "Belmont" Halifax County in the mid 1800's and named the farm penninsula as Belmont Farm. The name for the area stayed until the current owners of the Golf Course changed it.

Cache is located in rocks just off the edge of the mown area behind an older section of the hotel. Brown duct taped sandwhich container with a golf theme. Original contents included: 3 golf balls, pack of golf tees, measure tape for your shots (lol), rabbit for good luck, NS pin, and a good luck play coin that all golfers need. Also a FTF prize in package and a Tee B. Geocoin. There is a Buckley family photo taken of the Belmont Farm circa 1910. Do not remove this from the cache.
