Round Played: with Lance and Debbie Bentley –
By Wayne Halm –
“I would compare this with Pebble Beach” – Lance Bentley — (When you have a quote like that, you just have to lead with it.)
On September 18th 2014 I played the Kauai Lagoons course with Lance Bentley of Cambridge, New York – his wife, Debbie, also rode along with us. These two are fun folks. If you ever get a chance to play golf with them – take it.
This was a great day. We didn’t exactly “eat up” the front nine, but we made enough good shots to cheer about. However, the bushes and trees did block enough of the Trade Winds to make it warm.
I don’t know how long “Octopus plants” live, but I think ours is beginning to age – it seems to be losing some of its color (compare to pictures in earlier rounds).
On the back nine the beautiful scenery overwhelmed Lance – he kept talking about Iowa for some reason.
The magnificent scenery put them in a playful mood. I took advantage of the lightheartedness to get some good pictures.
However, on the 16th green the lighthearted teasing approached the line.
Debbie hustled over – pulled the pin – and backed away — but Lance missed the putt.
But we were golfing on Kauai – and a little thing like a missed putt is soon forgotten.
I put another ball in the water on 18, but we finished the round laughing and smiling – the way golf should be.
Come play golf with me.
