Old Fogy Golf

June 4, 2013
By

I probably will get a lot of grief for this title, but this what a lot of my friends call their weekly golf excursions. Batesville has a large group that either travels to North Branch on Mondays or some other local course and plays a good round of golf. After golf I think they spend a little time at the 19th hole. Unless you do not like to be with people, this is a great way to enjoy your retirement years. First of all, you get to shoot the **** (or something like that) and second, there are many ways to set up a sporting proposition that adds just a little more interest to the game. Most of them play for nickels and dimes, so even if your golf is a bit lacking in skill, you won’t lose the car on a game. It also is a great way to exercise–especially when you leave the golf cart in the shed and walk 9 or 18 holes. Most of the local courses have special rates at least one day of the week or have some kind of senior discount as well. The weekly games become bragging rights at breakfast the next morning, and this is another way to spend those retirement years away from the TV set or rocking chair. Another thing nice is that most of the guys are very flexible in each others’ skill levels so that all feel pretty much at home. There are all kinds of ways to handicap a round and keep it fun and fair. After all, most of these guys play golf for fun and most weren’t on “the tour” before they retired. If you enjoy golf and like to play with a group, just go to one of these courses, usually on Monday morning, and join in. I am sure you will enjoy it.
