Round Played: with Mark Schacter and Susan Heritage –
By Wayne Halm –
On February 26th 2016 I played the Puakea Golf Course with Mark Schacter and Susan Heritage from Toronto, Canada. Fun folks and a great golf course, you bet we had a good time.
The Puakea Golf Course is sometimes called “The Hidden Gem of Kauai”. It plays among the hills and streams at the base of Mount Haupu. The course is not near the ocean, but the Puakea Golf Course has its own beauty, charm, and mystery.
Interestingly Puakea seemed to be in the process of giving their greens attention one at a time. Many were absolutely perfect – others were patiently waiting their turn. But we did not have to wait, the pace was excellent on this day.
We finished in time to stop in at the Kalapaki Joes sports bar for a beer, wings, and a re-telling of the round. However, a Curling Match was on one of the televisions and Susan interrupted the re-telling to explain the sport to me – ice evidently had a grain to it just like greens.
We mixed some lesser shots in with the good ones, but this was a fun day. We are planing to do it again. It was the way golf should be.
I have set a 2016 goal of playing golf with 100 people that I haven’t met. Mark and Susan were numbers 15 and 16. Want to be in that number?
Come play golf with me.
