Round Played: with Josh and Beth Strukoff –

On December 7th 2016 I again played golf with my buddies Josh and Beth Strukoff from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This time we chose the Poipu Bay Golf Course.

The Grand Slam of Golf moved on to other courses, but this magnificent course is still here … and you can’t go wrong playing it.
Josh wanted an early start and there was a determination in his demeanor. I think he wanted some “pay back”.
While I prefer to play a bit later in the day, the fun on this course starts early. Beth quickly started to press.
Poipu Bay is an absolutely beautiful course, but not every hole is “on the ocean” … however, none are far from it either. There is a lot of fun to be had on this course.
And on the holes that do play along the ocean … the ocean is definitely “in play”. Josh really needed this drive left of the coconut palms to work … it didn’t.
This was a fun round. And one of our group played the back nine at even par. Josh will just have to wait for his “pay back”. … and yes, we both had our picture taken with her on the 18th green.
A great golf course plus great playing partners equals a great day! This was the way golf should be.
Josh writes a golf blog called Golf is Mental – he should post about this round soon. Check it out … Compare his experience to mine.

Awesome post of an awesome day! I tried to keep pace with birdie Beth but couldn’t quite do it. There is always next round.
Thank you. Next round for sure. Look out Beth, Tuesday is coming and we have you in our sights.
A Hui Hou,
Sounds like you, Beth and Josh are having a fantastic time. Love the pictures and from the sounds of things, Beth is schooling you gentlemen! Keep the articles coming, I enjoy the read.
Thank you. Beth is working hard to teach us … but I think she expects me to pay attention and concentrate. Those aren’t my strong suits, but maybe I will learn something by proximity .
A Hui Hou,
