Children of Easter Morn!

He came to earth
with a life to give
so each of us
may continue to live.
Happy Easter

It's almost Easter!

I am not sure how it is in other countries, but in the Philippines there is no golfing on Good Friday.
But as soon as the sun rises on a Saturday you can be sure the golf courses will be open. And so my usual Saturday golf group was up early today to be able to finish 18 holes before it got scorching hot!

As there were no golfers on Good Friday, the ducks on hole 8 (who are so used to players bringing them food) were really hungry.  Check them out...

She does it again

Heidi Schettkat's eagle in Southwoods

The last time I played golf with Heidi Schettkat she made back to back birdies followed by an eagle.

Now she makes another eagle...


Then she says casually she's already had three holes in one and 3 eagles.

I seriously need to play with her more often.


Foolish Tour

1st Quarter Forest Hills Ladies tour 2014
It was the Blue versus the Green team for the 1st Forest Hills Quarterly tournament which fell on April 1, April fools day.

Hole 1 had us teeing off from a meter high tee.

For some it made no difference.  They hit it as far as they would with a normal tee.  Amazing.

But most would hit the tee and not the ball.

Our foolish holes:

Hole 4 - One golf club until holing out
Hole 8 - Use two clubs the entire hole
Hole 10 - Use your driver instead of a putter to hole out
Hole 14 - Everyone gets a mulligan
Hole 18 - The sand trap on the green is the hole

Of course the blue team wins....

It's April

And just like that it's April...

We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness
