One of the reasons to play golf is to meet new people and expand our circle of friends. I am always open to meeting other keen golfers and the other night during Men’s Night, I met a friend’s friend. It was a planned encounter because Andre and I have conversed on line through The Grateful Golfer mediums.
We met at the clubhouse about an hour and a bit before Men’s Night started. We chatted about our backgrounds and what we do now. It was very interesting to put some information to the face and a face to a name. Andre is a very nice guy and I could easily see that we were going to have a fun that night.
Then we hit the course. Andre is a long hitter with great control. He was a perfect compliment to his team. Playing a two person scramble, I was paired with Murray and Serge/Andre played together. Except for one poor hole, Murray and I kept pace.
One of the things I always wonder about is if the new person will actually fit in with the other players who are familiar with each other. Well, Andre fit in like a glove. Quickly he understood the gist of our group dynamics and quickly complimented the rest by adding his humourous comments to the conversation.
Overall, it was a fantastic night of golf and camaraderie. Golf is about meeting new people and it was a pleasure meeting Andre. I hope to tee it up with him and Serge again very soon.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
