Hubby's Birthday Golf 8-15-12

So, last year we started a tradition, golf for birthdays! The first time we went was for the hubby's, then they went for his two brother-in-laws' birthdays as well. This year the hubby had to work on his birthday, so we went on his day off a few days early. And we got lucky, it was the one some-what cool day in the middle of our heat wave. So, here a few pictures from the day :)

Warming up at the range.

The view down from the first tee. Hard to tell, but it was a pretty steep little hill down, there are a ton of elevation changes on this course.

Teeing off at the first hole.

Our brother-in-law Jeff joined us for the day.

The first green.

I was teasing the hubby that our golfcart number was the same as his age (he really only turned 37, lol)

I drove most of the day, his driving with all the elevation changes kept freaking me out. 

Jeff looking to see if the group in front of us was on the green yet.

Yay, tunnel! It goes under the main road that goes through the middle of the course.

Ever since I was little, I have loved tunnels, so this was really the highlight of my day, lol.

This squirrel came up to say hi :)

The back nine (holes 9-18) run along this local lake, Lake Murray.  Made for a beautiful view :)

Putting for 2 under par (an Eagle). He ended up 1 under par (a Birdie) after just missing the first putt. 
Stupid blogger, this was supposed to be before the last one, lining up his putt, lol.

The lake.

Us again! :)

So, there they are, only took me 9 days, lol. Have a busy weekend ahead. My two youngest nephews, Reese and Joey are both playing (American) Football this year, and games start tomorrow, yay! And then we're going to the theater on Sunday afternoon to see the musical my Aunt is directing, even though she has to miss opening weekend because she's still in the hospital :( (she's hopefully going home either tomorrow or Sunday).

Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!



  1. Looks like a really fun birthday (I love tunnels too).

    1. He said he had fun. It was his first time at that course too. One of these days I'll be ready to play there, lol. Glad to know I'm not the only one to get so excited about tunnels, lol :)

  2. I've only ever played putput golf. haha Oh, I haven't forgot to write you, I am just behind on some mail. It's an expensive hobby. soon, though, soon!

    1. I'm slowly learning, but I can only hit my ball about 30-50 yards, I need a lot more practice! It's harder than it looks. . . seriously considering taking a few lessons when we have the money. Oh, take your time, I understand, money has been tight for us as well, and postage gets soo expensive!
