Another Dear Friend Gone To The Golf Course In The Sky

"Friends who golf together, stay together."

Not long ago a dear golfing friend, Mary, passed away.  She was an amazing woman, loved golf, and played golf well into her 80's.  Even after she could no longer golf, she would come to our year-end luncheons and tell us a story.  Mary's husband, Roy, was one of my husband's golf buddies.

One of my favorite things about golf is that a person can play well into the later years.  We have a very wide range of ages in our league, many ladies who are in their 70's and 80's. I'm quickly approaching that category.  We may not be able to play as well as our younger years but we can still enjoy getting a bit of exercise and developing and maintaining friendships. 

Rest In Peace, my friend!

Hi Lisa Von Domek ,
Mary was a special lady.  She was a pretty fierce competitor too.

Hi Marie Story ,
I hope to golf as long as Mary did.  And, she loved to compete in tournaments.

Hi Kathy Streib ,
Yes, it's about the friendships and the fun to me... although I do have a very competitive spirit.  We all miss Mary in the clubhouse.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat ,
I think at this point in life we are all more conscious of how important good health is.  Without good health, life's options become very restricted.

So sorry to hear about your friend Carol Williams. Coming from a family of golfers, I know what a special time it is. Your whole frame of mind changes as you tee up on the first hole.  My dad golfed until he passed. I get it!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® ,
So glad to hear your Dad enjoyed golf.  I really enjoy golfing with my lady friends but some of my favorite memories are golfing with my husband.  Golf is a great distraction from other things in life.  I guess that can be good or bad.  LOL

Hi Sheila Anderson ,
Thank you.  I love golf but it's not for everyone.  I am blessed to have good friends to enjoy it with.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend Mary. I'm glad she was still able to be involved even after she was not longer able to golf. I've never been a golfer but like that it is something people can continue to do even in their 80s!

Sadly, we've lost quite a few friends in the last few years.  I'm curious about the golf courses in Heaven but not in any hurry to find out.  LOL

Hi Kat Palmiotti ,

It's always fun to see past members when they come back and join us for our weekly or season-end lunches.  Sadly, we've lost a number of members over the last several years.  Thanks for stopping by to read my tribut to Mary.
