Round Played: with Guy and Terri Munselle and Stephen Cope –
By Wayne Halm –
Question – What do Silicon Valley and Palm Springs have in common?
Answer – Good golfers.
On September 10th 2014 I played the Kauai Lagoons golf course with Guy and Terri Munselle of Palm Springs, California and with Stephen Cope of Cupertino, California. This was a fun day, we all played pretty well, and there was always something to cheer about.
Steve has a powerful swing – and his wedge shots almost made his putter redundant.
The 5th hole was a ‘happy hole” for our group – Everyone finished with the same ball they started.
Not every shot was good – but our group had something to brag about on every hole. Even the 8th hole had its high points.
The Octopus plant, with its bloody red tentacles, was as creepy as ever. Terri was brave enough to pose before it.
The beauty and simple WOW of the ocean holes put smiles on everyone’s faces. No matter where the ball went the smiles remained.
The views along the ocean are awe inspiring – Jack Nicklaus probably intended them to be a distraction. But by the 16th hole “golf” is in danger of being the distraction.
On the 18th hole I put a ball in the lagoon, not on the approach shot but off the tee. However, not even the resulting “double” could take away from this fantastic day on the course. The way it should be.
Come play golf with me.
