Rained Out: with Randy Vueleman –

By Wayne Halm –

I was off-island on vacation.

On March 10th 2015 I scheduled to play the Cypress Bend course in Many, Louisiana with Randy Vueleman.  The day worked out well, just not as planned.

Early March isn’t the best time for golf in Louisiana.  It is subject to rain and the courses haven’t recovered from the winter.  However, it was the time we had so we headed out to the course to give it a try.

Wet conditions had closed the course just before we arrived.  We were disappointed.  Cypress Bend is a great golf course – downhill holes, uphill holes, and holes along the lake.  It is quite challenging – but not on this day.

Fortunately the weather had not closed the Cypress Dining Room and we consoled ourselves with a three hour brunch.  We reminisced about previous rounds, Randy and I have had a few.  It’s funny how there seem to be more good shots in memory than in our actual play. 

An 85 yard island par three with the pin on the very front came up.  We both put two balls in the water trying to get close – but time and mimosas made even that funny.  We had a good time and laughed a lot.

Golf can be fun – even if all you get to do is talk about it.

Come play golf with me.

    • Aloha Josh,

      Yes, we put the time and unspent green fees to good use. The weather can stop golf – but it can’t stop determined golfers from having a good time.

      A Hui Hou,

  1. I bet Randy (Dad) had just as much fun talking about the fun you guys have had as he have if you got to play! Yay! Many got a mention on your blog.

    • Aloha Kerri,

      Yeah, we did have a good time. I thought I would get ahead of the crowd and mention Many before it becomes famous as Kerri’s hometown.

      A Hui Hou,
