Fridays were meant for golf

I had written about golf earlier in the week, whether to read or go hit a bucket of balls. After the stupendous game of golf that I had today, I am so glad that I did go to the driving range on Tuesday evening. All that practice paid off and I was hitting the ball well on all my shots.

Two of my friends and I went to Canterbury Woods this morning, there was a "threat" of thunderstorms during the day, but this morning turned out sunny and hot.

My sons shamed me into walking the course versus riding the cart when they heard my plans for the day.

"Mom, for pete's sake it's not like you have an artificial hip or something..."

For all you non-golfers, there are definite advantages to both methods of getting around the course. Walkers get the exercise and it's easier for club choice when they are right there by you. Carts can't always go where your ball is and you end up bringing a few clubs with you. The plan today was to walk the first nine and then L and I were going to play the back nine and get a cart. We played so incredibly well, (I beat them, with a 44 for the first nine) that we decided to continue walking. I was regretting that decision by the 14th hole as the sweat poured down my back and the hill walking felt like mountain hiking.

Next time I go, I will bring my camera since the views are amazing on this course. Trees, hills and cows with some mosquitoes. Overall it was a great day spent with friends, I am just physically tired tonight and looking forward to bed! Another exciting Friday night in NH.

  1. Hi Jenny. Michele sent me here today. Can't say that I have ever played golf - I remember I got a hole-in-one in mini golf when I was younger! :) Congratulations on walking the golf course - I have to admit, I'd be putting my hand up for the cart ;) Happy Blogging!

  2. Thank you for stopping by my joint. Sometimes it gets crowded over at Michele's, eh?

    I've never been fascinated with golf, although I played a round or two here and there. My B-I-L's homes is at the 8th Tee of the Jacksonville, FL Country Club. He's why I've played a round or two.

  3. I wish there I was a sport that I enjoyed participating in the way you enjoy golf. For you it sounds like it's not just the game, it's the ambiance. I'm so jealous of you!

  4. Sounds like a great day! One of these days I'm going to have to take up golf. I think I'd enjoy it...it's finding the time to learn that's killing me :)

  5. I just don't get golf. It doesn't seem very fun to me. Is it one of those things you have to do it, then you'll be hooked? Kinda like blogging?

  6. I never enjoyed golf. I never have played which might explain that and with my RA I never will be able to.

    You and my brother would get along well though. He lives for golf.

    I got a funny email about sports and the size of the balls they use to play it. Funny. Need to find it and then I'll send it to you.

    Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

  8. The way I play golf, if I did not pay for a cart, I would walk off around hole 12, so I need a cart.

  9. I'm proud of you for walking - it really gives you a good feeling of the course and it is a mighty pleasant walk. However, I wish there wasn't as much golf snobbery - we golfers are relentless to each other :)
