A few days ago, I wrote that my son, Tim, scored his first ace on St. Patrick's Day. After a few cursory congratulations to him from the cart boys and the foursome that played in front of us at Pawleys Plantation, we left the course for our condo nearby.
I have been feeling a little guilty ever since because I did not buy drinks for everyone in the clubhouse. But Tim is under the drinking age, disdains alcohol and did not want to make any deal about his achievement.
So, I ask, should I have left a couple of hundred on the bar, or does Tim’s age preclude my obligation? I will provide a copy of Zagat’s 2006/07 Guide to America’s Top Golf Courses to the first five who respond, regardless of whether you coddle me or not. (Note: You need to register to leave a comment, but I promise not to bombard you with emails or share your information).
This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005. Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component. My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout. We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
