Cavendish, Prince Edward Island - another golf day

Friday, August 21, 2009

Woke up to, you guessed it, another beautiful sunny day. Since we had been to the beach yesterday I thought we'd do something different. While driving into Cavendish I saw a sign for a public golf course with a driving range. I figured if we both hit a bucket of balls then perhaps we'd get some of our worse swings out of the way beforehand.

The course at Forest Hills was a delightful, slower paced, course than the one at Eagles Nest. We only had to let one twosome play through us. I think that helped our game. Not feeling rushed contributed to overall better play. We still need lessons but I could possibly see buying a membership to the Pueblo Del Sol country club in Sierra Vista. My father once remarked to me that he'd made more money on the golf course than almost any place else. Not that I'm in his financial league, or that the members at PDS would have inside trading information, but it wouldn't hurt to expand our social world nonetheless.
Anyway, we had a good time. I don't know if we will play much more on this trip because the green fees ($80 for 9 holes) could wreak havoc with our budget, but surely back in Arizona we will. Another thing I learned is that we should get a golf cart. By the time we returned to the Casita, Carol went right to sleep. It may not seem like all that much exercise but walking a course, pulling a rollcart over several miles, takes it toll. The conclusion of The Civil War would have to wait.
