Tuesday is now designated as "our" golf day. I am actually playing golf. Last week we went to Hot Springs Village and this week we ventured to Heber Springs/Greer's Ferry Lake to Tannenbaum Golf Club. It is actually just this side of Drasco.
I got bored with hitting golf balls at the range. I need to play. So far, so good! I doing pretty good with my tee shots and my putting. It's the "tween" (in between the tee and the green) shots that need work.
When I am having a playing lesson, we play at The First Tee of Central Arkansas. Chuck is an Assistant Golf Professional there as well as offering private lessons...
I get a special family rate:)
We usually play nine holes unless we go to War Memorial Park in Little Rock. It is a shorter course so we play 15 holes. We don't keep score and when I really mess up on a hole, I just call it an "X". I am having fewer and fewer "X's"....I have had one birdie, some pars, some bogies and some double bogies...and then, of course, some X's. I am progressing. Someday I'll even keep score. Then, I may be ready to play with Chuck in a Scramble*, which is our ultimate goal...and what started my on this journey.
*Scramble: a tournament where you and your partner play from where the best ball lies.
