The Green – Golf Etiquette Continued

If you think any old golf clubs will do, you haven’t been on the course trying to compensate for a club that’s simply too long or two short. Besides making a shambles of your golf game, ill-fitting clubs can leave your body aching after the game. If you’re spending all your time compensating, you probably aren’t shooting your best or even enjoying the time on the course.

You know how it is: You’re tooling along on the back nine when suddenly, and for no apparent reason, the foursomes stack up in front of you like so many cords of firewood. You can rant and rave, hit a warning shot over the heads of the group in front of you (claiming later that you “never hit the ball that far in my life”), or call the pro shop to blither on about the lack of competent course rangers. You can also suck it up, wait your turn, and blame that shanked tee shot on your loss of rhythm.

If you’re splurging, there is no place like the Ritz, a resort resembling a 19th century Scottish castle, on a bluff overlooking 50 miles of Northern California coastline. Local merchants agree that the Ritz Carlton hotel has brought a new level of sophistication to the area and increased tourism. If you go, pay the extra fee for the Club Floor. Even Rich agrees it’s worth it and with four meal services a day; he didn’t want to eat anywhere else. I didn’t listen to him though and booked us dinner at Navio. With teak ceiling and floors and views of the Pacific, it’s like dining in a cozy ship’s cabin. Try the prix fix dinner pairing a different wine with each dish.

After satisfying your appetite, take advantage of the many opportunities Mills Park has to offer. For the athletes there’s a football field, basketball court, softball field and 400-meter track. Looking for a little less exhilaration? Try the walking and jogging trails or the 9-hole disc REMUS EXHAUST course. You can even test your arm in the horseshoe pit. There’s definitely something for everyone. And best of all… admission is free.

Thank You Gift Baskets are a direct hit to express your gratitude to someone that has made your life a bit more on the cheery side. It’s important to recognize other people’s effect on your life. Wouldn’t you appreciate knowing that you’ve made someone’s life better? There are New Home packages of goodies to send to the new neighbor to make a friendly first impression as well.

Most previews also stated that by downloading software, you can do much with the Wiimote. There are games that can be interconnected into the Wii. You can unite the Nintendo DS into the Wii and play “Pokemon Battle Revolution”. This is the first game to allow connectivity between the two game consoles.

Prevention is often better than cure. Stay active and engaged in life and you will find that you have ways to deal with potential stressful events. This does not mean you are running a marathon every month but having an outlet for your energies, thoughts and feelings.
