The Dream Team

The Dream Golf Team had a fabulous day.   Why was it a dream team?  Well, it was me and 3 men.  And they spoiled me. Lol 

The weather was perfect.  Bright and sunny with just a slight breeze, enough to keep the bugs away.  The only thing missing was we all forgot sunscreen and I have a slight burn.  Actually, its like a farmers tan - knees to ankles and arms.  Looks kind of funny now.  No tank tops until it evens out.

It was my 2nd year golfing with these guys.  I arrived and one of them already ordered my lunch.  It was waiting for me at the clubhouse.  The 2 golf carts were reserved and pre-stocked with refreshments.   And not once did I have to go fetch a stray ball. 

I am thrilled to report that none of my balls went for a swim.  I almost never get over the big pond on #4.   Its not a long hole but that stupid pond in the middle always psychs me out.  But today I landed my tee shot right on the green!   And yes, I did a little happy dance. 

I did, however, fall victim to the dreaded gully on #7.  My ball ended up in the gully (where the snakes live....eeeek).   We left it there. 

We finished the course with a par score.  Not bad!  We had about 80 participants and ended the day with a barbeque back at the clubhouse.  

I'm tired, happy and a teeny bit sore.  Now its time to catch up with all of your posts.


  1. Kim, I'm so glad that you had such a nice time golfing day with three nice guys and that they spoiled you and that you ended the day with a a nice BBQ. It's about time that you had something nice happening to you.

    Now you can work on the rest of your tan. I have a farmer's tan too but at my age I don't care, I still wear tank tops because I just can't take the heat very well.

    I never golf but my youngest daughter does.

    Enjoy the week end. Hugs, JB

  2. Hi Kim, Glad your week ended on a high note. Now you can relax.

  3. Ahhhh....A lovely end to the week. I always loved the golf outings when I was in private practice - 'cept in Nod, at THAT firm, they didn't actually let the "lady" golf (yeah - I was the only female in a firm of 30+ men....) I got to make melon balls instead. (And let me tell you, I could have made some really GOOD melon balls if I didn't need that job...) Glad you had fun. Any taxi dancing going on afterwards??? ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. Whoo-hoo! A day out with the guys on the golf course! And a barbeque to end the day. Sounds like you had a good relaxing day of fun after a week of hectic activity. You certainly deserve some stress free social time.
    Hope you have a nice weekend.

  5. What a wonderful day and wow I like those odds. :) So glad you made it away from the pond and to bad about the gully, it sounds like a wonderful day, beside I think any day in a golf cart is a great day.

  6. You go girl! Sounds like a prefect way to spend the day.
    I am impressed the way you played the game with those guys.
    Hope you have a great weekend

  7. I wish I could get CH out there to golf a little! I am glad you had a good time and you are happy! FOOD! Sounds good to me. I have a farmer's tan, used to bug me but not anymore :)

  8. Kim ~
    Sounds like you had a great time. You so deserve it. May you have many more fun days like that ~ and sooner rather than later!
    Pug hugs :)

  9. My dad so loved to golf! Every spring he would watch to see when he could see a green haze on the ground, and once the grass turned green, it was time to go hit some balls! I sure miss him.....

  10. Oh my Kim, I'm so behind on reading your blog! I had to go back over the past week and see what I've missed. I loved the pic of your wildlife...I'd call him a groundhog, but maybe I'm wrong, I don't do to good with animal identification! Your golf game sounded fun although I don't golf, my kiddos do and they seem to really enjoy it. I'd rather take a nice walk along the course myself! Have a good weekend!

  11. Sounds like a great golf time! Sometimes it's fun to hang out with guys...their energy is so different from ours--

  12. Sounds like a slice of heaven to me! I'm glad that it worked out all on the positive! :-) Poison Ivy is another reason to leave a ball... lol!
