Today, I got to try out my new golf bag caddy. I scored it for 5$ on a local garage sale site. It’s not brand new, but for 5$ it does the trick. (It cost 5$ each time you rent a caddy). One day, I’ll invest in a nice one (with a cup holder, was jealous of the lady we played with today’s golf caddy and her pink golf bag!) but for now, this was a great deal. Some of the tee off balls for the ladies tee were huge oversized golf balls, it was fun! Since Jamie and I are a two-some playing, if there are singles, or another double, they match you up. There was a solo guy and a solo lady today, so we played with them. The lady only joined us for the first 9 holes.
I’m totally digging the teal/turquoise color combo right now. My new sneakers (well not so new, got them for the holidays 2011), are that color. They’ve been super comfy to play golf in! (I played last week too).
By the 17th hole, I was wiped today. I also pulled something in my arm (somewhere around the 3rd or 4th hole) and it was bugging me big time by the end today. We had to cross tracks to get to the final hole (18th). The 18th hole is on it’s own, near the parking lot. Jamie had me park in a spot where fly balls wouldn’t hit. It’s been said that cars have gotten whacked by balls before. The golf course we went to today, we won’t be going back to. Jamie hadn’t been there in numerous years to golf, and he said it was crappy back then, and it’s even worse now. There’s been no money put into the course and it’s not that fun. Last week, the course we were on was really nice, and big too. (Over 11 km of walking). Today’s course was small (just under 6 km of walking). It’s great exercise, that’s for sure. It’s too bad the course is not well kept. I’m glad that this is a sport that both Jamie and I enjoy. It’s so much fun to spend the entire day together. I shot very well today (I’m not keeping score yet though, maybe after a lesson (which I want to take soon) and after a few more games, to get comfortable). I wasn’t the worst one in our foursome today though, the lady we played with was not any better than me. Made me feel good about my game today.
