Papa’s World – golfing with friends at Carolina National – a Fred Couples course.

Buck Cindy Sherry – getting ready to tee it off!

We journeyed North to Bolivia N.C. to meet up at CAROLINA NATIONAL GOLF COURSE!

Twenty seven holes and a signature Fred Couples course.

Our first time here -and we are golfing different courses each week.

It was a Monday afternoon with 2:12 pm. tee times.

It was a great gold day – high 70’s – slight breeze – blue skies – white and gray clouds –

lots of sunshine and very good friends!

Game on – girls vs boys!

Cindy – teeing off – Sherry spotting the ball!
Sherry teeing off – note: BOTH of them always hit it straight down the middle!

They are so hard to beat – never in trouble – down the middle and hitting almost every green in regulation!

And – darn it – one will make the putt!

We really try to beat them – but the first nine – well it was not pretty!

All smiles – ready for the back nine! Time to pull it together! We got off to a good start – going up 2 after the first three holes – and then four by the fifth!
But they started coming back – we pared -they had a birdie!
Going into the last hole – we were up by one!

We got into trouble – they didn’t – they parred – we boggied!

Tied the final nine! Let this one slip through but we had a great time!

Drove to Oak Island – and found a BBQ place still open at 7 pm.

We have been doing this for years – guys vs. gals – always fun – but they are good!

Papa’s World – Rivers edge – golfing with friends – we finally beat them!

Cindy and Sherry – one will walk and then change up for the other to drive.

We started off in the rain – but the forecast said it would move on out –

and the sun and warmth would be there!

AND THAT IS JUST WHAT IT DID!

One of the views – we had to cross over here – but it was not a busy road.

Are there Gators here? YES THERE ARE!
Sherry Buck Cindy about to putt!

We played well – Buck and I – enough so that they beat us by one stroke the first nine and we won by three stokes the back nine. Do not be fooled by how close they made it – they are always right down the middle and second shot is either on the green or close to it! They are good when in a scramble!

We bought what is called the first tee card – we all have them and it allows us to play over 32 courses

at reduced rates – all are on the N.C. side of the border – and our new house is right in the middle!

Sherry going for the green on a par three over the marsh.
Cindy going for the green over the marsh.

I did not like this tee box as it was like a practice mat.

The only part of the whole course that they did this on.

You could not put a tee in – only if you found a seam.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World.

It was a fun day – and because it was cart path only –

it took us five hours to play and we did not finish up until 6:00 PM.

But – we finally beat them on the back nine by three strokes and it was hard doing that!

Papa’s World – Sherry and I went to Eagles Nest to golf – a relaxing four hours – good course.

Eagles Nest – Little River – North Myrtle Beach.

We had stopped here over the weekend – as we have driven by it hundreds of times!

Two entrances and finally I just turned in and followed the road for about a mile.

And then we were there – EAGLES NEST GOLF COURSE!

What we found out later – was this is the longest course in S.C.

and maybe the longest I have EVER played!

The back tee box – if you play that – the course is over 8200 yards long!

And full of beautiful scenes such as these!

There are many marsh areas such as this – did not see any snakes or gators!

It was more like this most holes!

We were teamed up with a father & son.

We introduced ourselves – we had not planned on playing with anyone.

But – after the first hole awkwardness

It turned into a fun day!

A view down the fairway!

I had watched my wife and how she was hitting.

I noted that she was doing everything right except two things!

I told her to tee her ball up a little back in her stance –

and to always tee it up the same height.

She was coming over the top on her ball – still hitting it good but not as far as she has.

This green – she hit the cart path – this hole for her was 299 yards – after I adjusted her stance and tee height – she ripped one down the right side and it hit the cart path and followed it toward the green – we searched and searched where we thought it had gone – the two guys we were with found it! It was laying just off the green on this side along the cart path. It had gone 299 yards!

And – I might add – she beat me by FIVE STROKES on the front nine!

So much for me showing her what to do! LOL!

After I showed her the adjustment – with her ladies tee – she was out driving the rest of us!
And she continued her good play – she also beat me the second nine!

Just a word to our friends – Cindy and Buck – the ladies have to give us strokes from now on! LOL

They are just too darn good!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Before I showed her a new stance – moving the ball back and then letting her swing take it!

I did not get a picture after – I was too busy trying to keep up with her shots! LOL

Papa’s World – ringing in the New Year – Friends and golf – catch phrase!

Cindy Sherry Dottie

Once again we celebrated a new year with friends.

Making sure we all were social distancing

before we met up – and the game was on!

THE GAME – golf – four strokes on the highest handicapped holes per side for the ladies.

Jim and I play from the yellows – Buck and ladies from the reds.

Front nine – with the handicap – 38 – 39 ladies! Par 36.

Jim and Buck

The second nine – 39 to 41 – guys! par 36.

When they are on – they are tough to beat – always down the middle.

Sherry – par three drive – putt for birdie – they all missed the putt! But – you can see – they are tough to beat!
The group of us have been friends for years and years – playing golf is part of that friendship.
Buck Papa Jim – getting ready to tee off.

The second day – same rules – front nine – 39 to 41 – guys!

Different course – and this was a day after playing a game called CATCH PHRASE!

Now – we just not seem to win at this! LOL!

Or the card game which Cindy overtook me on the last hand! LOL

Cindy practice swings before teeing it up!

The second nine – 40 to 44 – guys!

Finally – we were able to beat them after 18 holes the second day –

it had rained all night – course was so wet – you had to have a ball retriever

for the middle of the fairway!

Cindy – getting ready to line up the shot!

Papa’s World – Golfing Leopards Chase – Gold!

Good morning – a cloudy start to our day of golf with friends!

Leopards Chase – Gold course – situated in Ocean Ridge Plantation

Along with THREE other courses – all named after

Big Cats of Prey!

Cindy Sherry Buck on the green – now to select where we are putting from

We have decided to build a house – in the long run –

it will work out the same or cheaper than buying!

The market keeps going up for resales on houses

and we can build and have brand new for the same!

Cindy and Sherry – down the middle is normal for them – Cindy getting yardage to the pin!

And we will build right across the road from this and three other courses

in what is called Cameron Woods!

In fact within a 5 mile radius –

20 golf courses and two beaches

Ocean Isle beach and Sunset beach.

We had searched and searched – condos – houses- apartments

and by chance we found this – and the model –

Sherry once again had her dream home!

And it knocked off about 45 minutes for the drive back to NVA!

Sherry hitting off the middle to the green – water to the left!

All we are waiting for now is the plans to be final

and then a meeting with the construction manager

to go over those plans

and then a start and probable finish date

4 to 6 months start to finish!

By the time you are reading this

we will have already done that!

Buck and me – it was a great time to golf with friends on a very good course – to think there are three more in here and it is a mile from where we will live!
Cindy hitting fro the fairway to the green!

We love this area – the drive to both beaches is less than 15 minutes

Shopping is 6 minutes

Calabash is 15 minutes

and Route 17 is ten minutes.

Our friends house is about 30 to 40 minutes

And a lot of places to dine out on the I.C.W.!

We have extended our stay where we are until the end of June

hoping that the build will be done

We have to buy furniture and move what we have in storage

down here.

Cindy – Buck – Papa – Sherry we are golfing regular now – mostly with our friends – whom we have golfed with for about 30 years!
A lot of the golf cart paths run through the sand – we saw no gators but not sure if they are here or not – but saw signs for snakes!
Cindy and Sherry discussing their next shot as we let a twosome play through – these ladies are serious and hard to tie!

We did not want to go farther South –

we wanted a temperate climate

and still be 7 hours to home!

Bridge to number 18 – the final hole with waterfall!

We have found that place here – among the golf courses and beaches

but still only a 30 minute drive to North Myrtle Beach

which we have become fond of!

Number 18 – Leopards Chase – Gold Course!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

YES THEY BEAT US!

Papa’s World – Oyster Bay – Golf and “ALLIGATORS”!

Alligator laying in the backyard of someones house! Across the water from the putting green!

Our friends – Jim – Dottie – Buck and Cindy – came for a visit!

And we planned to golf two different days!

The last day was at Oyster Bay – not very far from Calabash

The Seafood capital of the world

and home to many – many “GATORS” on the course!

BIG GATORS!

Jim & Buck

We had a gals vs guys match

and off we went –

I had listened to other players who had finished

talking to the starter about the “GATORS”

and how big they were!

Just laying there almost seemed it was dead until it moved its head!

We saw them a lot – esp. on the middle holes!

The ladies putting behind us – we were able to tell them where the “GATORS” were.

One par three – surrounded by water – except a small walking path

lined with flowers and tall bushes

kind of sketchy walking through there

had a drop zone right next to the green.

And a large sand trap.

Well – right next to the drop zone lay a six foot gator!

Dottie actually hit her ball and it landed on the green and rolled into the drop zone!

Where she left it for some future golfer to find as it ws too close

to that six foot gator!

We had a good time regardless –

you just did not look for golf balls as I think snakes are also here!

Me taking a picture of Jimmy taking a picture of two gators – one to his left and one to his right – the one on the left was very big!
Cindy about to hit from the fairway – they are always in the middle which makes it so hard to beat them!
Sherry lining up her putt – they also are always putting for either birdie or par!
Jimmy hitting his Tee shot. Look close in the middle just between the fairway and trees – his ball going down the middle!
Dottie playing her approach shot two strokes from there for par.
The “GATOR” laying next to the sand trap and drop zone!
They pared this hole!
Beautiful but a lot of “GATORS” in there!
People live here despite the “GATORS”!

We enjoyed this course despite the “GATORS”

being a fun course to play.

Lots of fairways and marsh – small lakes – water everywhere!

Again right down the middle!
My co – pilot – Buck!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

FAMILY MEETS FRIENDS!

Sherry and Cindy – Dottie walked to her ball

And yes – on the course called OYSTER BAY!

With all the “GATORS”!

It came down to the last hole – number 18 !

We had a boggy – long par 5 – missed putt and they pared!

GALS ONE UP AFTER 18

35 to 36!

70 to 71 !!!!!

I told you Jimmy – they are too good!

Papa’s World – Saint Bonaventure Golf Course.

Saint Bonaventure University Western New York outside of Olean N.Y.

We lived in this area most of our lives together

The hills – rolling meadows

the lush greenery and yes snow.

But we also belonged to the Bona’s Golf Course!

Situated right next to the very large cemetery

and right across the highway from the University –

sits a nine hole course where we attempted to play golf

sometimes twice a week!

There are special holes here I remember

one is at the tee box of number FIVE

where you are up on a knoll

looking down but out across the trees to the campus

and the hills in many colors of the fall.

Just a beautiful peaceful view.

And then number SIX

where I recorded my only HOLE IN ONE!

Looking across number TWO fairway to number THREE!

The beauty of the course in all seasons

well – in my thought – not SNOW! LOL

But people cross country ski here in the winter.

And now – a brand new clubhouse built overlooking the course

in the exact same place as the old one

which I all the time hit!

The new clubhouse at Saint Bonaventure University

The old club house held many memories

of dinners – events and celebrations for us to remember.

But now – it is brand new

offering a view of numbers one – two and three.

And in the splendor of the fall foliage

The last time we were there

the course was in excellent shape

and I still see the views in my mind.

The course can be challenging

and sort of lulls you to wonderment of the views.

Number SEVEN – very hard to hold the green

if you are short it will roll 75 yards back down the slope

too far and you are in a steep back with 12 in rough!

In its splendor – lush green – views for miles.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

If you are ever in Western New York –

about 65 miles South of Buffalo and you play golf

Just across the road from Saint Bonaventure University

sits a nine hole course we learned to play together

Take the time to take it all in and play nine!

Papa’s World – little things here and there!

We now have had “THREE SLEEPS” in our new digs!

And are loving everything we have been doing lately!

Walking with Cindy at the break of dawn

in Magnolia Greens – Leland NC.

I have always loved it here – and we have visited for the past 20 years.

Sunset over the golf course and pond at Buck and Cindy’s house.

And the very second day evening – we saw “ALLIE”!

Whom for the past five or so years we have seen numerous years!

It is a six foot or more Alligator that seems to live in these ponds!

Buck has seen him twice grab a rabbit and a goose!

So – we are aware – and stay back from the edge!

We walk – play golf – laugh – talk

as we have been friends for 34 years or more

they were our neighbors back in WNY before they moved to NC.

Then we moved to NVA and we visited back and forth.

Now – we are looking from Wilmington NC to the border of SC.

They are huge Buffalo Bills fans as we once were!

Now – since we sold our house

are beginning to follow them once again!

We enjoy outings – much the same as they do!

Beach is our calling!

Laughing – talking – playing cards –

and the last few times we have been together

WATCHING SCHITT$ CREEK!

We have watched it all one time and started watching it again.

We do celebrate special occasions

like birthdays

and special get togethers

Golfing!

Yes – Cindy brings shots of Rum Chata!

Whenever we birdie or sometimes for a par!

We do like to have fun – laughs and good times.

Playing golf games – GUYS VS GALS!

They are tough – always down the middle

always putting for at least a par or birdie.

Now – I never know WHERE my ball will land! LOL

So – it makes for fun times!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – before we leave – one last time!

I said to my son in law –

“Sherry made tee times – 4:00 PM. Do you and Tammy want to play”?

And so it was – as we get ever so closer to leaving –

We went to Algonkian Golf Course –

among the deer once more!

This time not as many – but there were a lot of deer – just driving into the course

We discovered this course last year after living here for 21 years!

Only by accident as the kids went together and bought us gift cards

to golf at the County Golf Courses!

There are three of them – and we had played the Brambleton Coures

just a mile from our home.

The other one was a good hour away

but this one was 30 minutes away and near our church.

They said yes – and we went on Monday afternoon – labor day!

It was not crazy busy – and we actually got to tee off early.

What a fun time – Sherry said she loves this course.

This was our third time to play it.

Once last year with Buck and Cindy –

then a couple weeks ago with Jayson and Ginger

and this time with Tammy and Marcus.

Marcus about to hit his second ball

This course is a regular links course – but very flat –

trees everywhere – and narrow fairways – and “DEER”!

I was within 10 feet of two deer grazing

They are very tame and are in packs –

They are laying down or just in the high weeds.

They are by the greens or tee boxes.

They are not afraid and this whole area is a public park.

There is a walking path that runs right through the golf course

with hundreds of people walking – running or biking.

Social activity is abound here.

We both seem to play well here – as the fairways are very narrow

but run right next to the next fairway –

separated by dozens of mature trees!

Each tee box has five different tee’s.

Marcus and Tammy

If you hit the ball short and straight

you tend not to get into trouble

I have slowed my swing down

and found that I am mostly down the middle some

175 to 200 yards.

Sherry is consistent – 125 to 150 yards.

If I line her up correctly she hits where she is aiming!

Being in control is where it is at for us in golf!

Our closest friends for over 38 years.

Soon – I am hoping when we go South

We shall once again join up with our old friends to golf.

After all – we have been doing this for years and years.

Sherry and the deer

But ALGONKIAN GOLF COURSE will always have a soft spot in my heart.

Just like back home in NWPA Kane Golf Course has a place.

Papa’s World – When friends golf – win or lose – a great day

Last weekend – our friends stopped in on their way home from WNY –

We planned this out –

We made twilight tee times – for Friday at 3:00 PM.

The challenge was once again on –

GALS VS. GUYS – NO STROKES GIVEN – they are too good !

GOOD MORNING

Now – we have done this many times before –

and it almost every time is a close match –

And it was also close this time –

Cindy and Sherry

Our friends – Cindy and William ( Buck ) McBride –

we have traveled the World together since we were neighbors

32 and 1/2 years ago.

In five weeks – we leave and fly to Northern California

Where we will meet up and tour for ten days !

Alogonkin Park Golf Course

The course is about twenty minutes from our home.

And there are Deer on every hole !

Buck teeing off

It was very hot out – 94 degrees – but by the second nine –

A breeze and shade –

Cindy teeing off

As I said no strokes are given – they do not need them –

if you do – they will kill you –

As it was – we beat them by ONE STROKE !

SHERRY

The second nine – we won by two strokes !

Tom

BUT – the difference was two reasons –

We ONE putted SEVEN greens –

and they THREE putted FOUR greens !

That is why we give them NO STROKES !

If we gave them strokes

All in all we had a grand time –

Cindy and friend
A lot of wild life
Cindy

Looking forward to our trip in August –

We beat them – but had we not putted –

it would of been different –

But that usually is the way it goes.

Cindy and Sherry
