Yesterday I wanted to be outside and do something active, but I wasn’t sure what. Then I decided, why not try golf? When I was a teenager my parents would send me to golf and tennis camp at a country club nearby and I wasn’t half bad. So why not pick up the sport again?
I went with my boyfriend and my little sister Damaris who is only in town for a short while longer. We started practice shots at the driving range, then some putting, then started on the course. Granted, it was only a par 3, but you can’t start off shooting 18 holes on a difficult course your first time.
We actually didn’t do too bad. I had two holes where I made it in 4 shots, but my worst was an 11. Yep, an 11. The green had this crazy angle and I was about 3 inches from the hole 4 times before it finally went in. That same hole I made an 11 on … MY SISTER MADE A HOLE IN ONE! Her first time golfing EVER and she made a hole in one! It was AMAZING! People wait their whole lives for something like that and she did it on her first try! And to think the hole before she made an 11 and the hole after a 7. Talk about beginners luck!
At the end of the day, we had spent hours on the golf course and had a great time. I want 2012 to be a year of trying new things and being more active outside, other than softball. Maybe golf is a new sport I can play. Time will tell.
