The Three G’s

That’ll be golf, gambling and guzzling but not necessarily in that order. The Mississippi Gulf Coast seems to be a good place for all three.

A group of ten from Pennsylvania made Fallen Oak the last stop on their area course tour before heading home. The Admiral and I took the first fivesome with Tex and Dale trailing with the second. The golf wasn’t pretty but everyone had a good time. The highlight was a video of one of the guys in our group. He was behind the course namesake (fallen oak), which sits to the right of the eighteenth fairway, with his tee ball and wanted his second shot recorded for posterity. Well, it hit the tree two or three times and came right back at him. Truly a shot to remember and show the kids.

T-storms on the way. May be sitting out tomorrow.

Then there was this:

    thank you, gentlemen…do the caddies ride in carts if you choose that option…?? weird…

      I assume you’re still talking about Fallen Oak. Caddies hitch a ride on the back of the cart.

        interesting…still a bit strange for me why a mid-handicapper, like me, would use a caddy ( are one or two shots off the score really worth the expense, or pressure, actually…?)…I can see a scratch player using a caddy, but a hacker…??

      • lifeontour says:

        Handicap has nothing to do with it Frank. Some people are looking for a “tour guide” or wish to experience the full package when playing a course of this caliber. Businessmen entertain clients and go first class. For high-rollers, the extra expense for a caddie is pocket change.

      this is true…guess $$ can buy happiness…and not having to look for my ball after slicing it into the woods…~~!!
