Golf is Good for the Soul - Part 2

Had my last make-up golf lesson.

Another glorious day at the course.
Can you believe this course is a public course? Now I know that some public golf courses are amazing like Bethpage Black where the US Open was just last year.

However, I have been to some courses that are real doozies! Cigarette butts and beer bottles strewn about. Heck, I have even seen a used condom. Ick.

But this course is just gorgeous.
Started out at the driving range with my 7 iron.
Then ended the lesson with some chipping and putting. Lots of fun and I didn't do too bad. I actually did good. Not many of my drives are crooked. They are fairly straight. I say that now. On the course is another thing.

Val has given me some great tips and things to keep in mind. I will definitely be back for some more lessons.

Afterwards, off to Starbucks for my Caramel Frappaccino.
I love this particular SB because it is spacious with comfy chairs. It used to be a Wendy's.

I get some of my best writing done at SB.

wow - what a gorgeous course! I love golfing if for nothing else than the beautiful stroll you get to take. :)

and topping off the day at star bucks is the best idea I've heard all day! hehe :)

We have a private golf course down the street from us. actually there are lots of golf courses around here. I think I should take some pics of ours and write about it. Hopefully it will look as nice and comfy as yours. ps. I don't golf it's too distracting from my book.

The course looks beautiful! Looks like you had the perfect day to be outside too.

I just remembered that I didn't answer your question about the mini beach chair on my desk. I bought it on the beach in Positano, Italy. One of the workers there makes them and sells them! You can't see it in the photo, but there is a hand-stamped image on the chair that says 'Positano'. My sister and I thought they were so cute. They fold up and everything!

Just catching up on your blog since you first lost your brother. I'm glad to read your golf post - it sounds like you've gotten yourself to the point where you can truly follow the old adage to "take it one day at a time". I hope you continue to have moments of peace like this while you move through your grief!

What a serene setting, I know very little about golf, so I'm thinking I am at a loss to comment about your learning experience. But the visit to Starbucks, now you're talking my language! ~Lili

The weather has been beautiful here, Carmi, so you picked some good days to golf. I'm dreading when the humidity hits.

Beautiful course...of course I do not want to hear about golf right now...the US Open is here and there are people everywhere! I am not really complaining...it is good for our economy...we need it!

Great way to finish off...a love frapuccinos!

beautiful couse and day for golfing. I have never been golfing, wouldn't have the slightest idea how to swing or anything.

Glad you enjoyed the day.
