Happy Golfing Buddy — MidWeek Blues — Contest Winners
Meet Jim R. Congratulations, Jim!
Jim made a hole-in-one yesterday while we were playing at Raven Nest. This is a college golf course at Huntsville, Texas, belonging to Sam Houston State University.
It was a par three hole and Jim put the ball into the hole with his seven iron hitting it 137 yards from the tee box.
College golf courses are nice and handy for the students (and faculty). San Jacinto College where I taught has a nice nine-hole course. I would play there several times a week after work. We had no facility for riding carts so most everyone pulled a little two-wheel cart that held the bag. Some carried their bags on their backs.
I might add that this golfing group consists of a bunch of fellows from Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class of which I am an associate member.
Generally there are about twelve of us playing. This Tuesday we had only seven as the weather was pretty tough. The temperature was 33°F when we started at nine in the morning. And the cool wind was blowing all day between 15 and 25 MPH. (In the summer the grass is green but now it is brown.)
The winner is Lisa Ricard Claro (link) with a guess of 200.
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
we have great golf courses here. when i travel to Cebu, i see many foreign tourists travelling with their golf stuff.
Thank for the heads up with my missing label. I corrected it.
Congrats to Jim R. and congrats to Lisa for winning the contest.
Hope you're having a good week Jim.
Midweek Blues here
I'm tickled to have won your contest. I guessed high and kept my fingers crossed. Glad to know my estimate was reasonably close.
Enjoying your blog!
