Tuesday and Wednesday, August 15-16—Golf

After the long cycle ride yesterday, this morning was used to recover. We lolled around all morning, and at lunch left for Ephraim to get our rain check for last night’s performance of Doctor, Doctor. After exchanging our old tickets, we arrived at Peninsula SP Golf Course for a 2 PM tee time. It is such a nice golf course, and at $33 per round, including cart, it can’t be beat. Kay started like gang busters before settling in to tough putting conditions. I had a mediocre game at best. We scarfed down Mexican food at a local restaurant after playing, and before calling it a night.

Our August “home” backs up to The Orchards golf course, a public golf course in Egg Harbor. Greens fees are a bit less expensive after 12:30 PM, and I was able to get a tee time for 1:10 PM. Kay had a cut/color appointment for 2 PM; she dropped me off in time to practice a bit, but after loading the walking cart and checking in, the starter said I could go immediately. With no warm up, the first two shots off the tee were horrible, but I settled down after a couple of holes and really enjoyed the course. It is perhaps the highest quality course I’ve played, and if one can stay on the fairway, there is no bad lie as the fairways are like carpet. The greens were rocket fast, maybe even faster than Desoto and Magellan, despite being bent grass. I was tired and sore after walking 18 holes, but the red draught beer was cold and filling; Kay joined me on the club patio for a beer before we returned home, awaiting the heavy rain which had been forecasted.
