I’ve mentioned this before, but I grew up playing golf with my family and really learned to love the sport when I started playing for my high school. I was fortunate enough to be able to play using my parent’s membership to a local course all through college, but when I moved to Dallas after college I realized just how expensive the sport is. Apparently being low on cash AND time does not a golf game make.
That being said, it had been almost 4 years since I last hit a golf ball.
And yes, I’m serious.
Yesterday that changed.
Since we had the day off of work for Labor Day, Nate and I decided to go hit golf balls at a nearby range! How awesome is it that you hit towards the mountains?!
I don’t know why, but I was just SHAKING when I first got up to the driving range. Excitement, fear, anticipated frustration. But as soon as we both picked up our clubs it just felt like home again. Golf is definitely one of those games that’s addictive even if you’re bad. There’s always something that could be done better, a better angle to play on a hole, a way to cut down just one more stroke! from your score. It’s a challenge, and I love it.
I’m proud to say that I only whiffed (completely missed) the ball twice! Otherwise pretty much every shot was something I’d be stoked about if we were playing an actual game 🙂 Well, except for the putting. Putting is the bane of my existence.
See that smoke in the upper right hand corner? That’s the massive fire in Four Mile Canyon just outside of Boulder! We had no idea what it was, but even last night we could see a HUGE orange glow from our house, which is about 15 miles away.
We had a great time at the range…it was the perfect date! We had lunch at the clubhouse, then came home where I cooked the entire rest of the day. No recipes though, these have to stay a surprise for a while 🙂 Grocery shopping, more cooking, and time for bed!
- Get a glass.
- Spoon in as much good vanilla ice cream as you want.
- Top with root beer.
