Fighting For Tee Times At Your Local Golf Course

As a member of a local popular golf course, there are times when I am fighting for a tee time. The reasons for this challenge varies, but it is something that all golfers experience.

Bruce also invited Jack to play, thus rounding out our 4-man team. I have to say that it was one of the more enjoyable rounds of golf I have played in some time. I hope Bruce includes us again next year because Blair and I are ready for another shot at Pine Grove.
