Hunting for Golf Balls Is a Family Tradition
The Joy Is in the Hunt
I'm not a golfer but I love hunting for golf balls. It's become a family tradition at our annual timeshare in Sky Valley Georgia.
I was first exposed to the sport of golf ball hunting more than 25 years ago when Lori invited me to spend the week up there with her parents and grandparents. We'd walk the mountain course as the sun was going down. Lori's dad was pretty intense about the sport. He played the course and supposedly lost quite a few balls. He seemed determined to get a few back.
He was a good mentor. He'd tell me where the most likely places one should look and where it was probably a waste of time. After you're looking for 30 minutes and you begin to think that you're never going to find anything, out of the corner of your eye you see some white, Could it be????
"Yes, I found one!!!!!"
I felt like the guy who first found gold in California. "There's balls in them thar' woods!!!"
It doesn't seem to happen to everyone, but I got addicted. It wasn't just going out on a nice walk to enjoy the sunset anymore. ... more
