Grateful To Make Friends on the Golf Course

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.

Playing Games on the Golf Course

On Wednesday, I participated in my second Men’s Night in two years. Osprey Links Golf Course reserves Wednesday night for men to gather, play golf, eat a great meal and enjoy the company of strangers. Each week, we play a different game and last Wednesday, we played ‘Vegas Scramble’. This is a fun game that provided 92 players the excitement of the unknown on each tee shot!

Golf Game – Vegas Scramble

I enjoy playing golf games during Men’s Night. Last Wednesday, I played Vegas Scramble for the first time in my golfing career. Funny thing is, the very next day I played Vegas Scramble again for senior men’s day. What was interesting was that after using the same rules, we had different results. It is a fun game, but only if the dice are rolling your way! Continue reading

In case you are wondering, Men’s Night is more than just golf and here is why!

Second Leg of My Match Play Event Complete

I am in a Gross Match Play event at my local golf course – Osprey Links. It is the first time I signed up for such an event in many years and I just finished the second round of this tournament on Friday past. I played against Dave Vezina and I have to say that our round was very pleasurable and we had some great conversation. Before I go any further, I have to apologize to Dave, the one picture we took did not work….thanks Blair for all the help! 😉 I closed Dave out on the 13th hole, but in all fairness, the match was closer than the score.  Continue reading
