Summer is Here, Golf Is Great

  1. I love the summer
    I love the sun
    I love the heat
    I love the green grass
    I love the wind

    But most of all I love this time of year for golfing
    Nothing in this world makes me happier
    But A nice 7 iron from 160 or 170 out
    That nestles close up to the pin
    Is a complete and total work of Art

    I golf in the morning
    I golf in the afternoon
    I golf in the twilight evening
    I even golf at night

    Be glad your not my neighbor
    when Im bored
    or frustrated
    I have been known to hit golf balls
    all around my neighborhood

    I let the grass in my front yard
    grow so nice and long
    Not mowing it disturbs my neighbors
    But I like to practice hitting out of the rough
    not that Im ever in it much

    Anyone else loves golf just join right in

    Well Teeitup,
    I am glad the weather is nice for you. As far as the neighbors not liking your grass not being mowed, well, it's your grass to do with what you want!!!
    I never learned to golf, I never really understood it.
    I hope the weather holds out for you!!!

    I can't say golf has ever "called" me to play. My dh calls it "cow pasture pool" rofl.

    I just don't get chasing a tiny white ball all over the place. I chase kids, That is enough for me.

    And you can have that texas heat.

    I am glad you are happy, tom. That is all any man can ask for.

    I golf during the day
    I golf when its hot
    I golf when its humid
    And when its not

    I golf in snow
    I golf in ice
    I golf in wind
    Its all nice

    one thing I never do
    is golf when its lightning
    a lightening rod
    I dont intend to be

    Golf is Wonderfull
    Golf can be taken with a lot of Bull
    Golf is never the fool
    Golf can be cruel

    Golf like the rest of life has its ups and downs. Ive never made a hole in one. But I have made 3 double eagles, also known as albatrosses. Why the name albatross I dont know.

    Some say golf isnt a sport
    there is enough physical exertion to qualify in court
    But that person hasnt been out with me
    walking in temps greater than a 100 degrees

    I still walk the course, and yes I love walking when its hot. I prefer walking at all times. Now some courses dont let you walk and are not set up for it. You have to use a cart. But I still prefer walking, as long as there are plenty of water coolers out there and pretty beer lady to bring me gatorade.

    Thanks, Tom, for another great golf poem! I see that an old thread of yours had been found and relocated here....most excellent. Look forward to reading more of them as you write them. You might wish to place newer ones on individual threads to get the individual attention they justly deserve. Man, I didn't know you had it in you. I must admit, you surprised me.
