The Dream Team
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.
