The Club had its monthly outing on Sunday at Saddle Creek Resort in Copperopolis. I haven't played here since I lived in Stockton, so its been a while. The housing development has sprung up and the crash has hit here hard, as it has in most golf/resort developments. Its still winter, so the course was in good shape for the time of year. The greens were soft and much slower than I was used to and I never could get my speed down. That's still no excuse for 43 putts, though I only had 18 on the front 9. I shot 127 and only could adjust 5 strokes, after I took a 14 on the second hole. I hit the ball better, I just didn't score real well and I couldn't putt. It was cold when we got there but when the breeze died down it warmed up a bit. It still wasn't short pants weather and most everyone had a jacket, sweatshirt or sweater on while playing. I expect my index number to go up over 30 for next month. It has creeped up since I stopped playing weekly. I've had it in the 20's for a number of years. I'm one of the worse regular golfers in the club. But I still enjoy it and the fellowship I get out of being a part of the monthly event makes up for my lack of skill. Might be time for a tune up or two. Or some practice. Or both.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
