Won't find me on the golf course this Memorial Day
A long time ago I gave up on playing golf on holidays. There’s too many golfers on the course, most of which haven’t played since last Memorial day. Rounds end up taking six hours and I can never use the little coupons I cut out of the Sunday paper.
I think I’d much rather spend Memorial Day, hanging out on the back porch with an ice cold Dr. Pepper, trying to figure out why Rasheed Wallace–other than the fact he’s clinically insane–doesn’t post up more.
I know most courses make a good buck on Memorial Day weekend, July 4th, etc. And most golfers can never find time on a course besides this day, so I’ll let them have the tee times today. I also don’t have a good helmet to wear while I’m on the packed course full of 40-handicaps.
Blogger Mark does make a good point though about free rounds or discounts to vets. It’s a subject that’s been brought up on these boards before, but I’ve never heard of a course that offers that promotion. Has anyone ever played a course that thanks veterans with a free/discounted round for not only their service but for filling up their club’s tee sheets one three-day weekend out of every year? Aside from just doing a good deed, seems like the PR would have lasting dividends.
