Shop the Look:
This past weekend was the annual ‘Father Daughter’ golf outing at our club. We have been playing in this for many years, and it has become quite the tradition!
I’m not really a golfer. I mean we grew up doing ‘Monday night golf’ at our club in the summers where our dad would take us golfing and teach us. But, this is the first time I have actually ever played a full 18 holes. I usually just play 9. I have some good shots here and there but I’m never consistent and my form is less than desirable!
I’m there more for the good company, cocktails, cute outfits, and all of that… less about the actual golfing part, ha! My sister is a really good golfer and I use her hand-me-down clubs that are many years old. My mom even golfs! I will say, though, that I would like to get a set of my own new clubs. The hand-me-downs are totally fine, but I can tell when I use higher-end clubs (like when I try out my dad’s or husband’s), how much nicer they are!
This day is always such a good time and something I look forward to each year. I actually love the driving part of golf but then when you get onto the fairway and putting- I’m just meh about that.
They play it as a scramble which is nice and keeps things interesting.
I think my favorite part, though, besides being with my dad (my husband was there, too!) is that I get to bond with my dad over something that he loves and learn more about the sport. My husband is also golf obsessed (honestly obsessed is an understatement) and so it’s nice to just get to know more about this sport that they love so much.
I was thinking about this on Saturday, but if you want to get to know someone and what they’re passionate about, following along in their hobby for a day or two is not only such a good way to learn but also to bond with that person and understand them more!
