Default Lady On The Radio Yesterday

She was being interviewed about what she does for fun in TV. Her response was that she played golf with the ladies and then they all go to lunch. She said it's not about the golf, it's all about lunch. She said this twice during the interview and after the second time she said they really don't care about sports. These are the kind of people that ruin it for everyone. If you don't care then don't play so the ones that do care can play.

I play golf with a neighborhood group. The golf is fun, but the real fun comes at the lunch afterward, comparing scores, heckling the winners (and the losers), and joking around. I understand what the lady was talking about.

How do you know they "ruin it for everyone"? Seems to me like a world record jump to conclusion.

This group of ladies pay their monthly amenity fee just like everybody else that lives in The Villages and are therefore free to take advantage of all the amenities offered.

The people that don't care are the people that don't care. It's as simple as that.

I take exception to what you said. Our ladies group plays every week...some are out to enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful scenery and get a little exercise....some, to improve their game. We golf and might not really be concerned about how well or poorly we are playing, but do realize and recognize that we aren't the only people on the course so we don't hold up other golfers. If some of the ladies want to work on their game, they don't have difficulty since the pace of play isn't slowed by others in the group.
Then it's time for lunch, when all in the foursomes gather for good food, good conversation, laughter and relaxation.

Sometimes you have have to stop and smell the flowers - doesn't mean you're holding up the game. It's all about the experience and some choose to enjoy it one way - others another way. Who are we to judge?

I THINK what that lady may have been saying is what I myself feel about golf.

I have played golf for forty years. In my younger days, I was a good deal more competitive and a better golfer than I am now, never excellent.

I played with my friends and neighbors in the golf communties in which we lived over time, and I was a serious golfer, mother, teacher, involved community person back then.

Now I am not so serious about anything. I rarely write down my score now with the folks I play golf with, although it is entrenched in me to watch their ball and mine and to not chat when we finish a hole but as we wait to tee off on the next one and always to try to keep the pace of play. I don't play much 18 hole golf anymore and when it is very hot or cold and damp, I will find myself thinking about lunch on the seventh hole.

I find that I don't hold anyone up, still have a lot of fun and keep getting shorter and shorter distances, yet enjoying the experience, maybe even more than when I was in my prime.
