Papa’s World – Provision Company – a place where there is a honor system on drinks – and it works!

Provision Company at Holden Beach – N.C.

After golf at Lockwood Folly golf course – we made our way to this bar and grill –

we had never eaten here and did not know what to expect ( it was really good)

We placed our order while standing in line – and there is a very large cooler right there.

You simple take out the beer or soft drink you select – there is a bottle opener on the side-

and then you walk away and wait on the deck until your party is called –

and then you are seated!

No one keeps track of the number of drinks you take out of there –

IT ALL IS A HONOR SYSTEM and there is a hole in the wall to deposit empty bottles!

We are seated on the right at a table – and the walls and ceilings are covered with car plates –

and dollar bills! Most have names on them – hundreds and hundreds of them – and the plates have dates. Some newer and some older!

After our name was called – we were seated at this table – if you need another drink – just go back to the cooler – or go to the bar inside and order – just give your name at the bar and when you go to pay the bill-

YOU Tell them what you had to DRINK! ALL ON THE HONOR SYSTEM!

Cindy and Buck – Steve and Sherry – Elaine behind the post!

The waitress seats everyone and another comes out with your orders and calls out a Name!

You just acknowledge and they serve you!

This was a first for me and THE HONOR SYSTEM works – even at the bar!

All good things must be done!
We finished up and were ready to pay – counted the drinks – and well – hey – HONOR SYSTEM WORKS!
A good day of golfing – friends relaxing and sharing a meal!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – The War at the Folly – the golfing scramble match – GALS vs. GUYS – FRIENDS!

On a beautiful day – Elaine getting in some practice putts!

This really is a vista view golf course – sitting on the marsh – between Oak Island and Holden Beach N.C.

Lined up and ready to go – TEE TIME is now! The Gals tee off first and we are there to cheer them on!
I will let them say who is who!

They hit it well off the tee – a 30 yard advantage –

which means we have to have a drive 200

yards or more down the middle –

a slice right was the best we could do –

but we were even with there drive – and once again – their second shot was close to the green – we had our work cut out for us!

There they are putting for birdie on par three!

If only we could putt!

Three putting is going to make this awful close!

They are out there – 175 yards – with the advantage – we have to drive it 275 to be even!

Thanks to Steve – it was not his drives so much – I was matching him –

it was his ability to hit his second shot – and we would putt for birdie

only we could not putt and were taking boggie!

They started fast and maintained the pace as we matched cards – but we did also!
Picking up ball and going up to where Cindy drove her ball – advantage – another 100 yards!

All we could do was try to stay even to where they hit their drives – the second and third shots saved us!

Then – all of a sudden – we started to two putt and me – of all people – sank two one putts!

GAME ON – we were coming after them!

We shot a 43 on the front nine and we could not putt – back nine we started to putt and had a 40.

We wasted that front nine – and we knew it would be close – and it was!

They ended up with a 85 and we beat them by two strokes!

They are just so good that they need no strokes!
so at the end I asked them about the putts and what holes they used them on?

Remember in the previous bog I said they could have two extra putts each nine!

WHAT PUTTS Elaine and Sherry said?

Did not you hear me at the rules?

You got two extra putts for each nine holes!

Well – they remembered Cindy saying something about PUTTS they said!

Cindy added later – we would of beaten you if we had taken those putts!

Yes – you might have – so next time you only get two putts!

But then you have to remember to use them! LOL
