Well, it is that time of year. Yesterday Senior Men’s day was cancelled due to rain…..again. This week looked to be great fun with a jumble of scrambles mixed between the different pars. We will have to just wait until next week as our registration was pushed until then. Fortunately, I do not have to make up for the lost day as I am playing 3 out of the next 4 days.
Like most golfers, I watch the weather very closely. The forecast said that the rain was to stop by 8:30 am; they only missed by 3.5 hours! Unfortunately, this is all part of playing golf this time of year and I will be hit with a few disappointments along the way. I just hope that next time, I do not have my clubs out ready to go before the deluge starts.
After getting over the disappointment, I was suddenly left with 4 hours on my hands and no real plan to spend it. It is important to keep in mind that having a back up plan is important as to not waste the day. In my case, I did some retail therapy and exchanged some work clothes. I arrive home about 4 hours early after all that and decided to putter around in the garage.
The great thing about my house is that there is always something to do. So my plan to use the extra time from cancelled golf was to knock off some ‘to do’ things on my yard work list. Good thing most of my chores can be completed during poor weather.
It is the time of year that I need to be prepared for golf being cancelled. I jus hope it does not happen too often. Do you have a back-up plan to cancelled golf due to poor weather?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
