The first round of golf with my new shoes and new clubs was quite the experience. We went to Countryside, and had to be there bright and early for a 8:34 tee time. (ugh too early for a Saturday morning!)
The weather was cold (under 10 degrees) and very, very windy, so it made for a tough 18 holes, but it was still a lot of fun! We rented a golf cart so I didn’t use my new pushy cart. I discovered that my set contained two 5H clubs, so I have to exchange one for a 4H. I didn’t lose any pink balls, either, although I had some pretty good retrievers watching where they land… thanks boys! I might have abandoned 2 in the tall grass if I had been searching for them on my own. Mostly I hit pretty straight so the pink balls were easy to see. I also didn’t shoot over the water because the wind was so bad and honestly, I can’t drive them all that far yet.
In the end, my score card contained mostly :) faces, a few meh faces, and only one :( face! All in all, a great round because I had fun!
