This week’s weather was spectacular – blue skies, no humidity and about 75 degrees – which made it perfect for golf! My husband took a day off so we decided to head to our favorite golf course, Meadows Farms, and play 9 holes of golf. He wanted me to play the Waterfall 9 because I hadn’t had the chance to play it yet, and the course has a pretty unique hole, aptly named Waterfall:
When we first pulled up to the hole, I was totally confused. You want me to hit the ball where???? Yep, the green for this hole is up behind the waterfall. My husband teed off and hit the ball out of sight – I couldn’t see it anywhere. Just for good measure he hit another one off and it dropped right on the green, just a few feet from the flag. Are you kidding me? Jealous. What I soon realized was both of his shots had landed up there – just inches from each other.
It was my turn to go and I carefully lined up my shot, paid close attention to all his last minute pointers (keep my eye on the ball, don’t let my shoulders rise, etc) and SMACK – off went my shot. PLOP! You guessed it, right into the water.
I teed up another one of my bright pink golf balls and gave it another try. This time I at least got it over the waterfall and just right of the green.
Something tells me this course and I are going to have to become friends – it is absolutely beautiful and they have 27 holes (3 separate 9-hole sets) including the longest hole in the US (haven’t tried that one yet).
