Bob and I participated in a couples golf scramble this past Saturday. The golf scramble was held at the Jackson Valley Golf Club, located in Warren PA.
Jackson Valley Country Club
The participants in the couples golf scramble were employees of the company for which Bob works and their spouses. I did not count the number of couples who participated in this scramble. Each team consisted of two couples. Our team consisted of Bob and me and our friends, Beth and Brian.
The couples golf scramble was played in a best ball format, which means each player tees off. The second shot is played from the best tee shot and so on. I teed off a couple times. My balls didn’t go any farther than when I was putting on the green, so I quit teeing off and participated only while on the green. Beth did the same.
Bob took this photograph of me.
It was my first time driving a golf cart.
Driving a golf cart is fun!
I will share only a few photographs of golfing action. The top photograph shows Brian in action. The bottom photograph shows Bob in action. See the path going up the hill in the top photograph? That hill is referred to as “cardiac hill”. I was on this golf course one time before, in June 1998. Bob participated in a golf tournament. He was part of a 4-man team. I tagged along as Bob’s caddy. NEVER again! That climb is aptly named “cardiac hill”.
Brian took time out for a little fishing during the scramble.
When I wasn’t hitting the golf ball, driving the golf cart, or looking for a golf ball I photographed the beauty of the course.
At the conclusion of the couples golf scramble we ate a picnic dinner and then departed our separate ways. I think our team had the highest score of all the teams that played. We played for fun, though, not to win. Brian, however, did get recognized for the longest drive. With the exception of a couple times playing putt-putt, I had never hit a golf ball. I never did well at putt-putt; I didn’t do well hitting the ball on a real golf course either. I did have a good time, though. We all did. I would participate again in a couples golf scramble and perhaps hit the ball more often. I think, though, that I need left-handed golf clubs. I kept going to the wrong side of the ball when it was my turn to play.
