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

Next blog – after golf scramble – dinner at Provision – Holden Beach – where they have a honor system on DRINKS – and it works!

Papa’s World – A gathering of friends – golf challenge – Gals vs – guys – rules laid out!

Gray clouds – bag drop off – LOCKWOOD FOLLY GOLF COURSE!

Elaine and Steve – Cindy and Buck and Sherry and I – all met here at the golf course!

It would be a friends scramble – Gals vs. Guys – and of course the rules have to be laid out!

It is always interesting to say the least – NO STROKES I REPEAT!

They are just so good that it is tough to just tie them!

But Cindy is always after more strokes! LOL

RULES OF PLAY:

  1. They play the ladies tee box – anywhere from 30 to 110 yards advantage!
  2. ( they all hit it 150 to 175 yards! Add on the advantage and you can see how far we have to hit)
  3. Steve and I hit from the seniors – he is I think 63 or 64 – I am 72.
  4. They really contested that because he can hit it long – but it also goes way left or right!
  5. We would have to use one drive front nine and back nine from each of us!
  6. That nulifies his long drives – and we pretty much were even in what drive we took.
  7. Par threes took out any long drive he might of had for four holes.
  8. Buck – who has a handicap – hits from the lady tees!
  9. The Gals will get two extra putts on the front nine and the back nine! ( keep this in mind)
We expected them to be tough to beat – and we were right!

After much back and forth with them trying to get more than what was fair – we were ready to start!

It was going to be a great day – the GALS vs. The GUYS at LOCKWOOD FOLLY GOLF COURSE!

Situated between Oak Island and Holden beach N.C. – on the marsh land – a beautiful course!
