Golf is so popular simply because it is the best game
in the world at which to be bad.

A.A. Milne

On Friday, we joined in on the summer event of Couples Twilight Golf at Nick's club. He's never played in it before so we invited two couples to play with us. The theme was Mexican Fiesta so after nine holes of golf (in the rain!) we enjoying a great dinner in the clubhouse with tacos, chips and salsa plus tons of other good stuff.

Even though Nick is a golf professional, he's usually so busy with work during the season it's rare for him to be playing a lot of golf. And, because it is what my husband does for a living I hardly play so it was great for us to get out on the course with some friends!

What's the line about how nice it is seeing a man in his element?
I love watching Nick play golf. He's a rockstar.

The three guys on the green.

We hit from the tee and ran for cover. Ladies' do not appreciate golf in the rain.

Florence and Mike, our very first Quad Cities friends
(I know Florence from Tri Delta in Naples).

Ben rocking his Poncho mustache. Getting in the fiesta spirit.

My favorite golf pro. Ole!

Our whole group.
