I am having a boast!

This last week I have been walking on my crutches around the local 9 hole golf course whilst Husband thrashes the golf ball wildly from place to place. I have found the grass very much to my liking - soft and springy - I can walk much further. Out of sight of the club house I stole one of Husband's golf clubs and took a practice swing - no problem to the wonky knees - I gave it a go. The ball flashed straight down the course - a brilliant shot and then another. Husband looked extremely fed up - his shots were spraying all over the place. I have not played golf for over 20 years - but now I know that I can still play and that is a thrill in itself. The local course does not have the use of golf carts so I shall just retire gracefully!

Good for you....sounds excellent exercise and very good for your moral. But obviously not your husbands!

Well done! Shame they don't have golf carts or husband would have some serious competition:-)

Club committee don't know what they're missing - SupaLindsay on SupaTrike. Am sure you could hitch up the bag of clubs - with a couple of wheels attached.

Have seen someone riding a scooter with the golf bag on a little 2 wheeled trailer attaached at an exclusive type links course over here! This lady's scooter was bright shocking pink!

Can you introduce the use of golf carts? Would be fun..... ;)

Golf carts on this particular golf course would just sink into the ground - there is a lot of clay soil with various ponds to help the drainage and lots of little footbridges over ditches etc. A golf cart would be too wide and probably so am I!
