Finding Golf Balls In Unusual Places

Most golfers are natural ball hawkers. We are always on the look for a round treasure to either keep or share. In my case, I share most of the golf balls I find with Rick and Blair because I like to stick to my brand as much as possible. Additionally, I do not carry a ball retriever, but fortunately Blair does and from time to time, it comes in handy!

As you can see, he has already retrieved out one ball and was going in for another. As I loop the course, I am always looking to find a golf ball. I generally find 2 or 3 balls and every once in a while I will hit the jackpot. Regardless, finding golf balls is always fun and helps pass the time when we are in the woods or water anyway.

As you look at the image above, I think there is something else I need to share:

Fishing a ball out of a sand trap!

Osprey Links (our whole area actually) has received a great deal of rain over the past few days. As a result, most of the sand traps have water in them and this particular one on the last hole of the day had a little treasure in the middle. I guess the person who hit it there did not carry a ball retriever like Blair.

I have to say that this is another first where someone in my group to find a golf ball in the middle of puddle in a sand trap. This is the third – firsts – of 2020. I cannot imagine what can happen next; but I am interested to find out.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!

  1. I haven’t found a single ball in weeks that wasn’t chopped up by the mowers. But I’ve found two towels, 3 pairs of sunglasses, and a wedge. The ranger joked that we should open a 2nd hand golf store when I flagged him down to hand over the last find.
