Disney Golf for the Birthday Boy!

So back in the beginning of May, Brian and I went to Disney World for Brian's 50th birthday... he wanted to play golf at Disney.  I sort of watched golf at Disney!   I'd go back in a minute just to ride along, the courses are just beautiful.  Osprey was my favorite, very wooded and lots of wooden bridges... and fast golf carts!  The golf carts had GPS for all the holes and you could do fly overs of the course... and the cart beeped when it went on a green and the screen would flash for you to move. 

Wednesday he played...
it wasn't very busy, we caught up with two retired guys that invited Brian to join them.  Ralph and David, or Danny, something with a "D".  "D" guy only had one arm..... and was fantastic!  Very nice guy too, both were, it was fun! 

Thursday he played...
our foursome included (not me, I'm just the driver) an 83 yr old man and his daughter, who just played the first 9, and a Brit named Kevin who was amazingly good!  He must of been a park ranger in a past life because he spotted the Eagle, otter, and deer before the rest of us. 

Friday we played...


with good friends Colleen and Steve.

Steve, me, Colleen and Birthday Boy! 
Colleen and I made it for six holes and then chatted the rest of the way in the Not The Mickey golf cart.  GREAT day!  We saw an alligator this day. First one we ever saw at Disney, we were beginning to think they took them off the property because there are plenty of places for them and we've just never seen one.

What did I learn after watching mostly men play 54 holes of golf! 

Golfers are housekeepers!

They hit the ball in the sand..... they go and rake the sand to get rid of footprints....

i.e. THEY SWEEP!

They play with one of their fancy clubs with the little dohickey cover on it, they put the cover back on it after every hole....

i.e. THEY PUT THEIR THINGS AWAY!

One of their balls, of the golf variety, will get dirty and they wash it

i.e. THEY DO LAUNDRY!

I said to the two old farts..... no wonder you all didn't want women golfing in the 50 and 60's, they'd find out you knew how to do housework!

Wed. and Thur. we were doing two parks a day and golf, and Friday we spent the day with Colleen and Steve.  Saturday before our flight we did two parks, just caught our 7 o'clock flight and was home by 10:30.  

We stay at our usual place Port Orleans - French Quarter.  Just Brian and I, the kids were still in school. 

Great trip!
