Round Played: with Jack & Trish Raquel and Scott Luecht –
By Wayne Halm
— A Fine Nine —
On January 4th 2016 I played the Hokuala Golf Club with Jack and Trish Raquel from Union City, California and Scott Luecht from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Often times a pick-up group jells wonderfully – this was one of those times.
The front nine at Hokuala re-opened this day – you bet I wanted to get out and see it. Time only allowed me nine holes, but I took what I could get.
The greens had come a long way, but were not back to the perfect Bermuda the course is known for.
However, the greens had recovered enough to again show breaks that simply aren’t there.
The greens were not a serious issue for us. We walked off them and onto each tee box talking, laughing, and ready for the next challenge.
It aggravated me sorely to leave this group after nine – I was having fun! (Did I mention that I had back to back birdies?) That put a smile on my face.
This was the way golf should be. These are fun people.
Scott owns a barbeque restaurant, Two Scotts Barbeque.
Jack is a Senior Project Manager at Cold Storage Group, Inc.
And Trish is simply charming, no other title needed.
I have set a 2016 goal of playing golf with 100 people I haven’t met. These were numbers 3, 4, and 5. Want to be in that number?
Come play golf with me.
