Yesterday I mentioned that I was going to play golf today with a ladies club on Fred Enke Public Golf Course here on the Eastside of Tucson Arizona. The course is located off of Irvington and very near the east campus of Pima County Community College. I was paired with 2 other women and one club board member.
I am joining the club for 4 months at a cost of $25, adding my handicap to the package for another $25 and buying hole in one insurance for $2. My round of golf with a resident's card was $32 including a cart. After I have played a number of rounds with the women, the residents card will give me a free round of golf. Actually, when you think about it, it is a very reasonable kind of recreation.
In organizations like this, the people that have volunteered to be in charge try to keep a modicum of continuity in the games that we play. You have to give them a round of applause for trying. The board member that plays with new member tries to explain the drill to the new members so everyone is on the same page.
I don't know how this works with men but leading women is a lot like herding cats! In a woman's mind, the rules/proceedures are made to be revised. This process of revision is one that each woman feels is her responsibility. My hat is off to any woman that consents to do the board member's job.
Cats love to play with a ball, are very independent and can scratch if they are displeased...sounds like a woman golfer to me!
