Bucket Or Sucket List?

Rebecca and I took a recent trip to Florida and I had one day to play golf in the Miami area.

Who knew Miami golf was so expensive?   OK, maybe you knew, but I didn’t.  The course closest to our hotel (which I saw from the street and looked unimpressive) was $250.  Then there was the “famous” course but that was $350.  I asked if it came with Hamilton tickets.

So I played a course about an hour outside of the city that charged $45.   Silly me.

I got to the first tee but the grass was so overgrown I couldn’t figure out the direction of the hole.  And I don’t mean was it straight or a dogleg, I mean, which way did the Tee Box face?

But I spotted the group in front of me and hit a decent drive in the fairway; this is my “fairway” lie:








Then, there were the fairway bunkers.  I thought “fairway bunker” meant the bunker was in the fairway, not that the fairway was in the bunker.










Remember the movie A River Runs Through It?  Here, a highway runs through it.  







Next time I’m in Miami, I’m going to the beach.

    Crazy story, Pat. Your title reminded my of sneaking a listen many years ago, to my childhood friend’s Red Fox album. Specifically the track, Don’t Fugget, Sugget. 🙂
