I had a good day today.
Had a delicious lunch at the Dancing Elephant.
And got to play golf.
With some positive feedback on social media I got a free round at the very fun and challenging Sunset Ridge Golf Club on Cumberland St. in Westbrook (going towards Windham). It used to be called Westerly Winds and looks like it will be an 18 hole course soon. It is also the insanely cheap price of $5 to walk this year in the few weeks left in Maine’s golf season.
I asked if could ride a cart and they said yes and even got a free drink. Very cool. And got 20 found balls for $10 because I know I would lose a few in the marshes.
And I enjoyed the cart. It is less work. But there is something kind of awesome about walking. It’s quieter. You don’t have to worry about making tracks. And it’s more spiritual in a way to just walk the course. Although it does wear you out more, especially when your back hurt in the morning.
I think I will walk courses more than the cart in the future. There was times I wanted to just put the clubs on my back.
What do you prefer cart or walking or the rolling cart? I see a lot of people choosing all 3.
All I know is it was a beautiful day to go golfing. And I know winter isn’t far away.
It was also great to see Dave Jacquet perform and see some friends at the Frog and Turtle tonight.
Definitely a great day.
