Weekend Golf

I am off to the coast to play golf for the weekend with eleven friends. Starting at lunchtime today, we will play four rounds in 48 hours in a Ryder Cup format. Our first course, The Heritage Club, is shown at the left.

It is challenging, watery course with a number of alligators. Once when I was crossing a lake, I flipped the lettuce and tomato off a sandwich and over the bridge. A gator came out of the water and caught the food on the fly. I have taken their gators seriously ever since.

After today's round, we will retire to a feast at our condos. One of our regular golfing buddies owns a restaurant in town. Even though he cannot make it on this trip, he is sending along a six pound prime rib, six pounds of shrimp, two pork tenderloins, perhaps a token vegetable, and two mini kegs of Red Oak. Hmmmmmm. Red Oak.

Saturday morning we will play the Moorland course at the Legends complex (see above). It might be the toughest of our four courses, and we will be moving a little slower after the feast.

Rest assured, I will be back in a few days with a full report of our matches, since I know you are on the edge of your seat.
