A Good Walk Spoiled
My father learned to play golf the year I went to the first grade in Phoenix. He had caddied as a kid and always wanted to play. So he did. He watched televised golf, a wonderful excuse for a good long afternoon nap. I remember seeing the tournaments at Pebble Beach. It is a spectacular location. There is also a major classic car show held at Pebble Beach each year. Given the opportunity to see the area, I did.
For a mere $10.25 you get a map and permission to drive the 17 mile scenic tour of Pebble Beach. It is spectacular and worth it. I will post some pictures from the drive soon. The drive ends at the clubhouse for the Pebble Beach links course. Of course there are retail opportunities. I walked down to the 18th green, took a few pictures including one of the local's daily driver.
I haven't played golf since high school. When I moved from Florida in 1995 I sold my clubs. Now I can take a good walk, and not be bothered by those pesky little balls and hard to make holes.
Do you play?
