Thank you to everyone who shared with us how you started playing golf and/or your fondest memory.
I was 8 years old and went golfing with my dad. He knew that I was getting tired, so he built a seat on his pull cart and packed me the last couple of holes at Jefferson Golf Course. (The last hole was uphill). Anonymous
I started playing “Mean 18”, a golf simulation. I found it so realistic that I HAD to try the game for real. With a $75 used golf set, I played at a local executive course and became hooked. I played for almost 20 years before attempting a full-length course and took some lessons. When I get too old to play golf, I will likely go back to a modernized version of Mean 18, to continue my obsession, even from a bed! Anonymous
I was just starting to learn golf and talked my 19-year-old daughter in accompanying me to the driving range. It was the type of range that marked the spaces between golfers with large round objects shaped like golf balls. Since my daughter was left handed, we were back to back so I could not see her, but I heard her grumbling quite a bit. I finally turned around to see what was wrong. She was complaining about not being able to keep the ball on the tee. I went into hysterical laughter as I watched her try and set her golf ball on top of the marker. I laugh now as I write this. She is now 45 years old, and golfs fairly well now. Anonymous
