One of the main reasons Matt and I chose the neighborhood we did was because it was a golf course community. Matt plays golf a good bit and we knew he would play even more if we lived on a golf course. The only condition was that he had to get me a set of clubs. I refused to live on a golf course and not have clubs. For Christmas Matt gave me a set of golf clubs and some golf shoes.
We were able to join the golf course when we went under contract on the house back in November and Matt has played numerous times since then but I had only been to the range twice. Tuesday Matt said he was going to play a quick 9 after work and asked if I wanted to join him. It was a beautiful day so I decided to go. Matt grabbed a few of my clubs and threw them in his bag and we were off. We ended up playing the back 9 and it amazing! We didn’t run into another player until we got to #16.
So what exactly is Kelly Golf? Kelly Golf is where I hit the ball from the ladies tee, see where it lands and decide if I want to play from there or pick my ball up and play from where Matt is. This also includes me randomly throwing the ball on the green to putt from. Basically I just make up the rules as I “play”. It was fun and I really enjoyed myself. It was nice being able to take our time and not worry about holding people (or Matt) up. It was also nice there was no one around to see just how bad I am. I feel like we might do this often. There is a guy Matt has started playing with and I think his wife might play about like me. I told Matt we might have to play with them sometime. The boys can play for real and the girls can drink wine and play. 🙂
